Banana Split is a cannabis strain that gives the taste and feeling of a dessert similar to vanilla ice cream. Created by Crockett Family Farms by crossing OG Kush and Banana Strain, Banana Split packs a punch with THC levels falling between 22% to 25%.
The effect of Banana Split starts with a tingle in the head and seeps slowly to spread all over the body. You may feel like jumping on to the couch and lay down for a while. Then the couch lock effect sets in fixing you in the same position for hours. After you come out of the couch lock, the nerves and muscles of your body start to feel relaxed and you may want to move to your bed to have a long and deep sleep.
The medical applications of Banana Split have proven to treat several ailments. The strain is mainly helpful in treating stress, bipolar, anxiety, and depression since it is a sedative and mood booster. The relaxing properties of the strain help in treating headaches, chronic pain, spasms, and tension. The sleep-inducing quality of Banana Split is helpful for people suffering from insomnia.
