Lean: Indica Dominant Hybrid
Papayas & Bananas is happily cultivated by Strane, right here in Maryland! This blissful indica hybrid was created by crossing Papaya with a fusion of Banana OG x Do-Si-Dos. This particular batch is testing at 23% THC and 1.93% total terpenes.
These buds are dense, mid-sized, and cloaked in trichomes in every nook and crevice. Emerging from the frost are bright orange pistols and underneath there's a light shade of green. When I start to break it down with my fingers, I feel it's a bit on the dry side, but starting to cure. Inside the buds I feel much more of the resin actively sticking to my fingers.
Still fresh but starting to cure.
A creamy and tropical mix with a tangy, nutty, skunkiness that shows up a bit after the sweeter notes of melon, papaya and banana begin to diffuse.
I rolled up a joint and initially, as I inhaled, I got a light and refreshing tropical smoothie and banana candy taste. Intriguingly it was sugary sweet while still resembling a natural fruitiness as well. As I exhaled, I got a nice subtle aftertaste of freshly picked papaya and earthy OG.
Banana OG x Do-Si-Dos crossed with Papaya.
The limonene comes in at 0.71% in this batch, bringing forth a smooth breeze of ease and delight. The myrcene comes in at 0.44%, complimenting the uplifting qualities with a surge of warm bodily peace and mental tranquility that seems to creep in after about 10 minutes. From my experience using this blissful indica hybrid flower, I feel it has the potential to help with many behavioral tendencies like ADHD & bipolar disorder. Others have mentioned its ability to provide relief from inflammation and muscle pains as well.
