Bruce Banner Smalls takes it’s namesake from the alter-ego of comic book superhero the Hulk and it receives this name with good reason as it is quite a powerful strain. The taste of the strain is a pungent citrus, and compared to the strain’s smell, it’s taste is considerably earthier and less sweet. Jason Holck of Dark Horse Genetics (aka OG Ironlung) bred Bruce Banner Smalls by cross breeding Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush, which is made evident with it’s pleasant, slightly sweet diesel scent. The effects emerge swiftly and in strength, but the stone mellows into a creative euphoria, balancing out the punch of the initial stone. Bruce Banner will provide a relaxing body high accompanied with useful pain killing effects for users. This is a strain that many use to treat anxiety and stress levels, as well as alleviating the symptoms associated with ADD / ADHD and Bipolar disorders. Bruce Banner is also used to remedy migraines and alleviate pain associated with arthritis.
This homage to the comic book legend could turn even the Incredible Hulk into a mild-mannered everyman. It’s powerfully relaxing, with sativa-dominant genes (60:40 sativa/indica ratio) that deliver a massive dose of THC: Nearly 29% in some tests. That makes this a holy grail of sorts for patients seeking the strongest high. CBD contents, however, are low, so this is not an ideal choice for conditions that respond to that chemical. The head high is intensely euphoric, combined with strong creativity and a whole-body mood boost. Energy levels are high, making this a good daytime strain. Bruce Banner is a highly effective painkiller, but it’s also good for anxiety, depression, nausea, and sleeplessness. Dry mouth and bloodshot eyes are both common side effects, along with occasional paranoia and dizziness. The dominant flavor is sweet, with notes of citrus and a strong, pungent smell. The bud has a heavily frosted appearance due to a thick layer of resinous glands. It’s most popular in Colorado, Arizona, and Oregon, though it can be found elsewhere. Expect this strain to increase in popularity thanks to its high THC concentrations.
