How to grow the Strawnana strain

The strawnana strain is considered to be relatively low maintenance for growers. It can be cultivated from seed or clone.

Once planted, strawnana cannabis plants typically take nine to ten weeks to flower. Delicate care must be taken during the life cycle to promote higher yields. This includes maintaining a humidity of around 50%, offering plenty of carbon dioxide, and topping to encourage even growth.

Strawnana tends to have very resinous buds, with a thick layer of white crystals covering every nug. This makes Strawnana an excellent choice for extracts. But make no mistake, it’s also fantastic to smoke the straight flower.

Strawnana strain genetics

Strawnana was initially the brainchild of DNA Genetics, which crossed Banana Kush with the strawberry phenotype of Bubble Gum.

Banana Kush’s lineage includes the famed Haze, Skunk, and Hindu Kush strains. The result is a euphoric yet chill buzz perfect for any occasion.

Bubble Gum, Strawnana’s other parent, has a murkier family tree. However, it is thought to be a descendant of the Afghani landrace strain. Bubble Gum is an indica-dominant hybrid, so while it’s a bit stonier than Banana Kush, it’s still surprisingly upbeat.

Cannabinoid and terpene profiles in Strawnana

Strawnana contains a robust amount of THC, typically testing at a 21% minimum. However, this can increase if cultivated correctly. The strain of weed also tends to have up to 1% CBG, a minor cannabinoid often used therapeutically to reduce stress. 

The terpenes in Strawnana really make it stand out. Terpenes are responsible for the rich aroma, familiar flavors, and potent effects of cannabis and they do not disappoint in this strain.

The main cannabis terpenes in Strawnana are citrusy limonene, earthy myrcene, and peppery caryophyllene. The combination offers a berry-forward flavor reminiscent of a tree fruit smoothie—creamy, sweet, with just a hint of savory. 

This blend of cannabinoids and terpenes offers a pleasant high that is the perfect marriage of sativa and indica.

The best ways to consume the Strawnana strain

Strawnana is an easy-going and enjoyable weed strain that is great for any occasion. The flower produces thick clouds with a smooth and refreshing exhale. A strain that induces laughter, sharing a joint or blunt with friends is highly recommended (no pun intended). 

As noted above, the resinous nature of Strawnana plants makes it ideal for extraction. The terpene profile alone should make it a dabber’s dream. Weed vape pods and live resin in the Strawnana strain are especially tasty.

Whichever type of Strawnana you choose, make sure to purchase it from a licensed dispensary or delivery service. This will ensure you always get a safe and consistent product that promises to give you everything this legendary strain offers.  Curated live resin derived from the Strawnana weed strain sits within an open glass jar with a black cap.
