This month’s featured flower hails from the prestigious Rythm line of premium Cannabis. Banana Treez is an absolutely delicious cultivar that brings a flavorful cascade of tropical fruit and piney evergreen together to create a creamy, minty aroma that carries well into the smoke.
The nugs feature a gentle green coloration, with vibrant yellow and orange hairs giving the flower a tropical appearance. With island-y flavors to match, the creamy banana and sweet kiwi inhale is followed by a piney, honeysuckle exhale. The profile is a hybrid lover’s dream with a harmonious balance of heavy indica and airy sativa terpenes – producing one of the strongest and most stable highs on the market today!
With .95% limonene at the top of the nose, one would naturally assume an immediately uplifting, sativa-like effect. However, the limonene is tempered with a healthy dose of myrcene, a touch of pinene, and rounded out by a caryophyllene/linalool tail. Indeed, this flower packs a mood elevating punch, but the uplifting qualities never reached a manic, racy place – as is often common with large amounts of limonene and pinene together.
The myrcene offers a strong presence that feels like an anchor preventing one from being lifted too far out of the stratosphere, while the caryophyllene/linalool combo offers a soothing calm that keeps the heart rate mellow. Together these terps create a healthy and nearly even balance, manifesting a robust and powerful high that maintains an even keel as you navigate your day.
Bonus points must be given for the fact that there is a true banana scent that carries into the flavor of the smoke. On top of that, there is a subtle woody/piney element that shines through as well, thus checking the boxes of both banana and treez. It’s rare to encounter a flower that smells and tastes like what it is named, but I wouldn’t expect anything but the best flower from Rythm – they have time and time again churned out some of Maryland’s tastiest floral treats and most effective herbal medicine.
