...going to meet the creator of the "bruce banner" strain tonight and pick up some clones. not sure which pheno, but hoping #3!
BRUCE BANNER #3: OG Kush x Reservoir Strawberry Diesel (Strawberry Cough x Sour Diesel)
Bruce Banner #3 is a Sativa-dominant Colorado creation originally bred by Delta 9 Caretakers, released to the public in early 2010. After receiving an ‘A+’ from KindReviews and selling out routinely for the first few harvests, it quickly became the stuff of legend, with copycat strains popping up and everyone claiming to have the real cut. Since late 2010, the clone has gotten out to the rest of the medical community and though the hype has died down, it’s still one of the most sought-after strains in Colorado medical dispensaries.
Originally bred by “OG Ironlung”, the mystery OG Kush (now thought by those involved in its creation to be Ghost’s OG Kush) was pollinated by a Reservoir Seeds Strawberry Diesel, and there were three main phenotypes that stuck around. #3 was thought to be the pick of the litter, but #1 won a Caregivers Cup in 2010 and #5 has become more popular as of late. Here’s the breakdown on the phenos: #1 is balanced between the parent strains and not quite as potent as the others; #3 is probably the most potent overall, with a strong OG Kush influence but some added raciness and fruitiness from the Strawberry Diesel; and #5 is Strawberry Diesel-dominant, taking strongly after that strain in structure and flavor.
Banner #3 has a deeply spicy lemon-lime OG Kush aroma with a slight hint of sweetness that sneaks in at times. The flavor is much the same, but adds a strong element of earthiness (like actual soil) and the sweetness takes a backseat. Banner’s effect seems to depend largely upon harvest time, with an early harvest making for a very cerebral and borderline rushy experience, and a later harvest giving a more relaxing effect. Generally it starts strongly Sativa, with lots of eye and face pressure, a floaty, buzzing body, and an increase in heart rate. The energy it gives is easily channeled into productivity, making the Banner a suitable daytime strain, though its potency is often too much for professional situations, especially for those who suffer from anxiety. The second half takes on a more relaxed feel, with more of the clear-headed relaxation that OG Kush is known for.
this will be an indoor grow. i've got to still get a light an pretty much everything else...
"hempy" will be the medium and style of growing, but i may throw in a chow-twist or two.
this is exciting times for me. ...first indoor since in this mmj state, first "hempy" grow, and this strain is one of the best i've ever smoked! ...makes me sweat!
