The Bruce Banner weed strain, often called Banner or OG Banner, is a hybrid cannabis strain (60% Sativa and 40% Indica). As a result, the strain offers a potent high with creative, relaxing, and euphoric side effects.
You can expect speedy side effects because of the high THC levels before settling into a head high with potential full-body relaxation.
The original cultivators—Dark Horse Genetics—bred the strain with OG Kush x Strawberry Diesel. Likewise, they named the cannabis strain after Bruce Banner, the fictional Hulk character from Marvel Universe.
Users often report a diesel aroma with sweet undertones, and the strain’s dominant terpene is myrcene. In addition, the Bruce Banner weed strain is often used for treating depression, anxiety, and nausea.

Strain Genetics: OG Kush x Strawberry Diesel
The famous OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel strains make up the Bruce Banner weed strain. Both strains are popular for relieving stress, anxiety, and depression; they’re also prevalent in veterans battling PTSD.
Here’s a breakdown of the two Bruce Banner weed strain’s parent strains:
1. OG Kush
OG Kush—commonly called Premium OG Kush—first began in the early 90s in Florida when cultivators crossed a cannabis strain from California with Lemon Thai, Chemdawg, and Hindu Kush from Amsterdam.
The mixture resulted in a hybrid strain with a complex aroma, a unique terpene profile, and a strong head high. OG Kush is superb for alleviating stress in the second half of the day.
2. Strawberry Diesel Strain
The Strawberry Diesel strain is a mixture of NYC Diesel and Strawberry Cough, resulting in a genuine hybrid with truly balanced side effects. If you’d like to complete daily activities but reduce insomnia, the Strawberry Diesel strain could be your strain.
The strain is also incredibly versatile; you can use it during the day or night. It's also a terrific strain for any sweet-toothed user because of its fruity aroma and flavor.
