Bruce Banner 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.
This Strain actually comes in three specific variants with, this strain being the most coveted of the three. Initially, 5 Bruce Banner strains existed, Banner #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5. Banner and #4 were both quickly drop, with #1, #3, and #5 taking precedence. Banner #3 ranked first place in the Denver US Cannabis Cup, and is the most potent strain ever tested in the history of the High Times Cannabis Cups. This Strain received a great amount of hype in 2009, right as medical cannabis started receiving a better reception in the mainstream.
This Strain has more going for it than a clever name and high THC content, however. This Sativa dominant hybrid strain packs quite a punch with a great balance between the Sativa and Indica effects.
Aroma & Flavors
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 Iron lung) bred Bruce Banner by cross breeding Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush, which is made evident with it’s pleasant, slightly sweet diesel scent.
