Bruce Banner: A Superhero Among Cannabis Strains
One of the cannibis strains that can’t be missed is the sensational “Bruce Banner.” Bruce Banner combines powerful OG Kush genetics with the flavor and potency of Strawberry Diesel. She has an otherworldly THC content and produces a spectacular, uplifting high. This earned her 1st prize in the “Most Potent Strain” category at the 2013 High Times Cannabis Cup.
Bruce Banner is a sativa-dominant cross (63% sativa) that produces very compact buds with thick, frosty layers of resin. Her fat buds have only a few leaves. This makes post-harvest cutting very easy. Orange pistils that stand out beautifully against the light green buds give the plants a stunning appearance.
Growing Bruce Banner indoors, she will not grow much taller than 120-150cm. This makes her easy to handle in limited spaces. However, she can benefit greatly from regular topping. This also applies if you want to grow her with the ScrOG method to increase your yield. The flowering period of this particular strain is reasonable at nine to ten weeks. Under good conditions Bruce Banner rewards you with excellent yields. Count on up to 600g/m² if you grow her indoors under a 600W light. You can expect up to 400g/plant in good outdoor conditions.
The smells and tastes of Bruce Banner combine delicious citrus and berry notes with hints of diesel from the OG. This makes for an extraordinary smoking experience. Even the most pampered cannabis connoisseurs enjoy this.
To call Bruce Banner potent might be the understatement of the century. Some of the phenotypes have a THC content of 30% or more. After all, the strain is not called the “strongest strain in the world” for nothing. Her super-strong smoke will make the cannabinoids roar through your body. And like the Hulk’s iron fist, it shatters lethargy and procrastination. The effects are incredibly energizing and uplifting, like you can take on the world! Bruce Banner is a great smoke that improves your mood and gives you bouts of creativity and motivation. Yet it also causes physical and mental relaxation!
Bruce Banner is a real superhero among cannabis strains. Grow the strain for yourself and you’ll see why Bruce Banner is unbeatable!

More About The Bruce Banner Strain
Bruce Banner, with a THC percentage of 27% (sometimes even over 30%), is the strongest strain ever tested in the US Cannabis Cup. The cannabis seeds consist of phenotype number 3 genetics of Bruce Banner with OG dominance and was created by crossing an OG Ghost with a Strawberry Cough x Sour Diesel. She consists of 60% sativa and 40% indica, so this makes her a nice stable hybrid cannabis strain.
Smoking this weed gives you an immediate powerful high with an eforic feeling. This powerful hybrid has a great balance between the Sativa and Indica effects, due to the fact that it is predominantly hybrid. The taste of Bruce Banner is very sweet with fresh citrus tones.
Who Gave His Name To The Bruce Banner Strain?
The Hulk, aka Dr. Robert Bruce Banner, is a comic book character in the comics of the same name published by Marvel Comics. He was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The Hulk is often passed off as a superhero, but is in fact more of an anti-hero; as such, he often has to fight off other heroes. Since his first appearance in May 1962, the Hulk has become one of the world’s most recognizable comic book characters. And it has been the inspiration for some stage names.
The Hulk was created when nuclear physicist Robert Bruce Banner was accidentally exposed to a high dose of gamma radiation from an experimental bomb he had made. Since then, whenever Bruce gets excited, he turns into the Hulk; his muscles become more powerful and swell; so much so that he rips out of his clothes. Only his pants remain in one piece. His intelligence, however, drops to the level of a five-year-old. Furthermore, his skin turns green.
The Hulk, like mentioned before, is actually Dr. Robert Bruce Banner, a nuclear physicist. Bruce is a great genius. However, as a child he was abused by his father, who also abused his mother. He held back his anger over this, which gave him a split personality. He himself was always rather timid, basically a nerd (for example, he owned ten identical costumes, so he would never have to think for a second about clothing choices). At school, he was bullied by other students. He passed through school with ease and went on to study physics at university.
In adulthood, he went to work for the US Army as a nuclear physicist. The military base, where he comes to work, is headed by General Thunderbolt Ross. The general has a daughter named Betty Ross, with whom Bruce falls in love. Bruce gets to work on a new type of weapon called the “gamma bomb”; a nuclear weapon with high gamma radiation. On the day the bomb was to be tested, Bruce (at the last minute) discovered a teenager named Rick Jones at the location, who was wandering around the test site because of a bet. Bruce managed to rescue Rick before the bomb went off, but in the process he got exposed to the blast with his body absorbing a high dose of gamma radiation. Rick took Bruce to the hospital, where he turned into the Hulk for the first time.
