It’s harder to find bigger, greener, meaner weed than Bruce Banner #3. This sativa-dominant hybrid is named after the Hulk’s alter ego. It’s an appropriate name. This strain’s massive THC concentration means that it commonly leaves smokers absolutely smashed.
Named one of the strongest strains in the world by High Times, Bruce Banner #3 is the third individual phenotype of this strain to be developed. It’s the result of an OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel cross, giving it a strange aroma. An amalgamation of many seemingly-contradictory smells, Bruce Banner #3 blends them into a pleasing whole.
- Massive THC content reaches up to 30 percent
- Sativa-dominant hybrid (80 percent sativa, 20 percent indica)
- One of the “Earth’s Strongest Strains” according to High Times
- Unusual flavour combination combines strawberry and diesel fuel
Appearance and Aroma
Bruce Banner #3 features a rambunctious terpene profile. Caryophyllene is one of the main components to pepper’s sharp smell. Myrcene is abundant in several types of herbs, and offers a rich, bold scent. Limonene rounds out Bruce Banner’s flavour, which gives it a slightly tangy smell. The typical earthy smell of Kush is also present, a nod to its OG Kush ancestry.
Your nose probably won’t be able to identify each individual scent Bruce Banner #3 presents. Instead, it’ll detect the scent that they combine to form. Bruce Banner #3’s aroma offers hints of diesel fuel, with fruity overtones. Once you ignite some, this strain doubles down on its sweet, fruity flavour. It’ll quickly stink up a room, so you might want to smoke it outside.
While you could simply say that Bruce Banner is “big and green,” that wouldn’t really be doing it justice. It boasts a wide array of verdant hues, ranging from a neon lime colour to darker, forest green tones. Its buds are unusually large as well, and may present some slightly purple colouring. It’s definitely visually appealing.
Effects and Use
We’d say Bruce Banner #3 hits like a horse, but that wouldn’t do this strain justice. It’s one of the most powerful strains ever crafted by human hands. In fact, it tested up to 29 percent at the Cannabis Cup, the highest THC concentration ever recorded at the event. That might not mean that Bruce Banner #3 is the absolute strongest strain ever, but it’s pretty close.
Thanks to its sativa-dominant genetics, Bruce Banner #3 has a unique high. It features the euphoria and energetic rush that you’d expect from a sativa, and infuses users with a happy, stoned feeling. It may also be able to help boost creativity and sociability.
Since its THC concentration is so high, Bruce Banner has a huge potential as a possible medicine. Medical users may be able to take advantage of this strain to alleviate several symptoms. They could include:
- Chronic pain
- Anxiety disorders like PTSD
- Low appetite
