Banana Sapphire is a 75% indica strain whose parents are Banana OG (OG Kush x Banana Kush) and Sapphire OG (OG Kush x (OG Kush x Afghan)). Banana Sapphire blends the subtle banana flavor of Banana OG with the rather more acrid, complex tones of the elite Sapphire OG parent. Very high potential yields.
Fast, vigorous growth patterns characterize this strain, whether cultivated indoors or outdoors. Banana Sapphire is also a hardy plant withstanding both cold nights and hot days enjoying plenty of sun. Trellising, or other forms of support, are required as the buds can grow very large and weighty. Indoors it is recommended to provide plenty of nutrients. The combination of narrow fan leaves and a long inter-nodal spacing allows for good light penetration and good air circulation leading to relatively maintenance-free crops. Signs of yellowing should be taken to boost the nutrient provision.
Indoors, flowering takes about 60 – 63 days with yields of 450 – 500 gr/m2 being produced. Outdoors the preferred climate is arid desert or mountain regions with full-on sun exposure. In these environments plants can grow to be more than 450 cm. tall, producing anything up to 5000 gr. each. Northern hemisphere harvests are in the first half of October.
THC levels are very high at 23 – 26% or even higher while CBD is low at just 0.1%. Banana Sapphire has a creeper effect that tends to finish in a state of couchlock making it more suitable for consumption in the evening. For an indica-dominant strain it also delivers a strongly cerebral effect. Recommended for pain relief.
