Two of the West Coast’s best cannabis breeders combined their premium genetics to create a potent hybrid strain called Apples & Bananas. The Compound Genetics and Cookies collaboration boasts a high THC percentage, visually striking appearance, and pungent smell.
Apples & Bananas Strain
The Apples & Bananas strain is a cross between four premium cultivars. Firstly, they combined Platinum Cookies and Granddaddy Purple with Blue Power. Then, they crossed the result with Gelatti, creating the now beloved Apples & Bananas.
This means that the fruity strain also contains OG Kush, Girl Scout Cookies, Durban Poison, Skunk, Afghani, Master Kush, The White, Gelato, and Biscotti in its family tree. Though the strain’s name may be new to some, its genetics contain many classic and popular cultivars, making for a potentially familiar experience.
Cannabinoids & Terpenes
The combination of all of these strains produces a fruity indica-leaning hybrid flower. It holds a high potency level, sitting around 23-30% THC, with also around 1% CBG. Additionally, its most dominant terpene is myrcene, lending it potentially anti-inflammatory, sleep-supporting, mood-enhancing, stress-relieving, and immune-strengthening properties.
Flavors & Scents
Apples & Bananas stays true to its name with notes of apples, bananas, cherries, berries, and citrus in its scent. Furthermore, upon smoking, the user may taste flavors that are reminiscent of baked apple pies and banana pudding. Additionally, notes of gas, spices, and pine may also be detected.
Apples & Bananas’ appearance further proves its potent and high-quality nature. The dense nugs act as a canvas for a range of green and purple hues. Additionally, crystal trichomes and fiery orange pistils are found in every crevice of the chunky nugs.
Apples & Bananas Experience
The Apples & Bananas strain is said to have a potentially heavy head high with a floaty feeling in the body. The top reported potential effects of this strain are feelings of relaxation and euphoria. One reviewer on Weedmaps states, “dense purple and green nugs broke apart nicely. Strong aromatic fruity smells are pretty distinct. Head numbing high. Overall 5-star, straight gas.”
