That’s One Fuzzy Banana Bud!
Review of ‘Banana Treez’ by Rythm/GTI of Maryland
I don’t think I’ll be able to go to the grocery store and look at bananas anymore without thinking about ‘Banana Treez’ by Rythm/GTI. I had first heard about GTI growing this strain in March 2021 and had been trying to find it ever since.
With origins of ‘Banana OG’ and ‘Lemon Burst’ – Banana Treez is a beautifully balanced Hybrid strain that is a glistening forest of trichome covered flower! When I saw that Gold Leaf of Annapolis had this strain not only available, but also on sale for $50 an 1/8oz – I was more than ready to climb some Banana Treez!
2.34% Total terpenes and 25.22% THCa. When I saw that; I knew Rythm/GTI had once again cultivated a masterpiece. Being Limonene dominant at .97%; Banana Treez has some very pleasant uplifting effects and some pretty incredible potential medicinal benefits. Limonene has some amazing properties; including being an anti bacterial and an anti fungal; it can also promote an elevated mood.
Myrcene is the second most dominant terpene; testing at .47%. Typically known as the ‘couch-lock’ terpene, Myrcene is a more ‘Indica’ type of terpene in regards to its effects. Banana Treez definitely won’t glue you to a couch, but this amount of Myrcene combined with Caryophyllene (.25%) help to level out the more uplifting terpenes found in the strain.
Alpha and Beta Pinene are (combined) the third most dominant terpene found in Banana Treez. Testing at .26% (alpha – .20%; beta – .16%); it helps act as a strong bronchodilator (helps open the airways). A fun fact; a main difference between alpha and beta Pinene is that alpha Pinene is slightly water soluble whereas beta Pinene is not.
Slide Show of ‘Banana Treez’
This is definitely an uplifting strain yet mellow strain. It’s aroma reminds me of my Grandmothers’ freshly baked banana bread and it has a very unique, mellow-pine flavor with undertones of fruity-earthy dankness. As you can see in the pictures, it is absolutely covered in trichomes and is abundant with kief. After smoking a .5 gram cone of Banana Treez, I felt relaxed, anxiety free and more than ready to write this review! I give this strain a 8/10 for taste and a 10/10 for medicinal benefits. Well done once again to Rythm/GTI of Maryland!
