Bruce Banner taste 

  • Sweet
  • Earthy
  • Diesel
Bruce Banner’s fragrance can be rather harsh. For this reason, we recommend you use flower vaporizer! Almost no plant material is combusted when vaped, leading to a much smoother and more enjoyable toke.  

Bruce Banner shatter edibles, etc.

Edibles, shatter, wax, etc. can be made from any strain of marijuana, and Bruce Banner Strain is a particularly good choice because of its high concentration of THC. Its strong, sweet taste goes well with edibles, but, given its high potency, you should use already vaped bud (AVB). If you do not have access to a vape, you can always decarboxylate your weed first. This will give a much more enjoyable high.
In addition, don’t forget to use a high-quality grinder to make the most out of your weed!

    Bruce Banner Growing tips

    Bruce Banner is a moderately difficult strain to grow and should, therefore, be avoided by beginner growers. Its plant is sensitive and a failure to maintain a suitable environment can have a large effect on the overall THC levels.Bruce Banner Strain prefers cooler growing conditions compared to other marijuana plants; temperatures should be kept between 18 to 25 degrees Celcius in a semi-dry environment. It can also be grown outdoors if these conditions can be replicated.

    Like other plants of the OG family, this Bruce Banner Strain can get rather bushy. Plants should be trimmed to ensure light reaches its lower parts. It is also suitable for techniques such as a sea of green or a screen of green. Though more mold resistant than other strains, buds should be checked regularly as they can become very moist, making it ideal for bacterial growth. With a cannabis stretch of more than 200%, be sure to give plants sufficient space to grow.  


    Bruce Banner yield 

    This Bruce Banner Weed Strain has a relatively high yield, similar to that of its parent strain, Strawberry Diesel. One can expect around 20 ounces of fresh bud per plant, equivalent to 550 grams per meter squared. Given its high levels of THC, one plant can certainly go a very long way!
