Chiquita Banana is an evenly balanced hybrid (50% indica/50% sativa) strain created through crossing the delicious OG Kush X Banana strains. No bud can really taste like bananas, right? Wrong – this tasty bud earns its name with each delicious inhale and intoxicating exhale. Chiquita Banana actually tastes like fresh bananas with a sugary sweet lemony exhale. The smell is more citrus and tropical than banana-y with just a kiss of earthiness. Don’t let the taste trick you into using more than you should – with an average THC level of 33%, this mouthwatering bud is not to be underestimated. The high is a creeper, sneaking up on you several minutes after you toke and completely taking hold in one swoop. You’ll almost instantly feel insanely euphoric, so much so that you’ll fall into crazed fits of giggles about almost anything. Even with this giddy effect, your body will be anchored to the real world with a relaxing body high that’s very mild in nature. With these hard-hitting effects, Chiquita Banana is suggested for experienced users who suffer from condition such as cramps, chronic pain, depression, and insomnia. This bud has small tight pebble-shaped forest green nugs with dark leaves and bright orange hairs.
When properly trimmed, flowers of Chiquita Banana are small to medium in size and hold together in roughly spherical, popcorn-like shapes. These buds have a characteristically indica structure, with leaves curled densely inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are not unlike the flesh of a banana – a mix of pale yellow and bright spring green. While relatively few trichomes twist their way through these compact flowers, they are absolutely covered in cloudy white trichomes, accounting for the strain’s sky-high psychoactivity.
Chiquita Banana’s flowers give off a tropical sweetness, which, while not exactly banana, has some pleasant notes of citrus. On closer inspection, there’s also a sweet, slightly skunky funk. Grinding up these dense flowers gives off rich odors of hash and spice. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Chiquita Banana burns with a smooth and easily palatable smoke. This smoke leaves behind a musky orange scent.
