Apples & Bananas Strain By Cookies: A Potent Hybrid With Pungent Fruity Terps
The creative breeders at Cookies and Compound Genetics have collaborated to create the quad-cross Apples & Bananas strain. This uniquely potent hybrid was cultivated by combining four (yes 4!) premium and popular cultivars. First, the Platinum Cookies and Granddaddy Purple (Granddaddy Purp/GDP) strains are bred with Blue Power. Then, this fire pheno is crossed with Gelatti. Resulting in Apples & Bananas, a visually appealing strain, with a high THC percentage, and a pungent, yet fruity, smell.
The Cookies brand has built a reputation on its ability to cultivate strains that have a luxurious feel, smooth smoke, and quality taste. The cannabis community expects fresh drops from Cookies to exceed expectations. This is due to their use of exclusive genetics and high production standards. Their Apples & Bananas strain does not disappoint! Offering consumers dependable, and potentially euphoric effects for any time of day.
Apples & Bananas Strain Aesthetic
Upon close inspection, the dense and chunky nugs of the Apples & Bananas strain contain rose-shaped coils and olive-green leaves with a touch of violet throughout. Long tangerine-colored pistils are sprinkled across each bud, and a thin coating of crystal-white trichomes influences a slightly frosty appearance.
This strain is easy to break down by hand, making it great for rolling blunts on the go. This strain’s versatility has made it quickly rise in popularity, and cannabis connoisseurs have praised it for showing some of the classic characteristics of popular cultivars in the strain’s lineage including OG Kush, GSC, Gelato, The White, Master Kush, Sunset Sherbet, ChemDawg, and Northern Lights. This impressive lineage influences the strains' pungent and fruity hybrid profile. Apples & Bananas is known to be highly potent, with THC levels ranging between 23-30%. Interestingly, this strain also contains around 1% of CBG!
Strain Smell and Taste
This sweet and spicy Cookies strain tastes amazing thanks to its balanced terpene profile. High levels of myrcene mix with low levels of caryophyllene, limonene, and pinene to create a fruity, gassy, and spicy aromatic profile. As you break this strain apart a whirlwind of fragrances hit your nose. Hints of citrus, cherries, and bananas meld with a chemical mustiness and settle into an earthy sour-apple scent.
At first taste, Apples & Bananas is pungent and spicy, offering notes of gassy fumes and pine-filled funkiness. On the exhale, this skunky strain offers a fruity aroma of apples with lingering hints of cinnamon and spice. A tinge of banana is detectable, but it leans more towards spiced banana bread than a tropical smoothie.
Although this strain is new, reviewers agree that Apples & Bananas is not for the faint of heart. This strong hybrid might be balanced but powerful. Consumers have reported experiencing a potentially powerful heady high that is accompanied by a body-numbing buzz. These potential effects might make this strain a good choice for pre-gaming a party, or as some late-night fuel. Be warned, although this strain may get you feeling creative and/or energized, it also has the potential to leave you with some killer munchies.
The high from this strain might creep up on consumers so it may be best to indulge in small doses. When smoked in larger quantities, Apples & Bananas has the potential to leave you feeling spacey, brain-dead, and a little sleepy. These potentially sedative effects may make this strain a good fit for someone looking to ease symptoms of social anxiety or chronic pain. Additionally, the high levels of the terpene myrcene may influence anti-inflammatory, mood-enhancing, immune-strengthening, and/or sleep-inducing effects.
