Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” Strawberry Banana, sometimes known as Strawnana for short, is an indica developed by DNA Genetics in collaboration with Serious Seeds. A genetic cross of Crockett’s Banana Kush and the “Strawberry” phenotype of Bubble Gum, Strawberry Banana inherited a sweet, fruity flavor, hence the name. Known for its heavy resin production and high-THC content, Strawberry Banana produces happy, peaceful effects that sharpen creativity and sensory awareness.

From the OCS website, “ Moonbeam from LBS is an indica-dominant strain with strong THC potency. Its limonene and beta-caryophyllene terpene profile gives it a fruity, sweet smell, and its light-green buds tend to be large and dense.  ”

Strawberry Banana

With 18.6% THC, packaged on June 22, 2019! Moonbeam was dry but still had faint scent of exotic fruitiness.  At $37.95 for 3.5 grams for a 1 year old product?  Surprisingly, we got “high.”  Moonbeam aka Strawberry Banana by LBS (Canopy) delivers a full spectrum experience.

The “high” is a smooth operator with a noticeable lift after inhalation.  Initially for the first few minutes after inhalation, we felt some energy and increasing mental clarity.  Time dilation transported us to the 15 minute mark without warning.  We could feel the “high” coming on as the mental effects grow stronger with increasing physical sensations too.  At the half hour mark, we felt sedative physical body relaxation, strong euphoria encapsulation and a creative dreaminess sprinkled with time dilations delivering an immediate “Oasis” in Life.  This is a very nice balance blend of Indica and Sativa effects for a solid two hour experience.

LBS is a celebrity Snoop Dog brand licensed by Canopy.  These celebrity strains are just rebranded classic strains like Sour Kush or Strawberry Banana etc ….  We have to admit we were surprised at how much we enjoyed a 1 year old Moonbeam aka Strawberry Banana “high.”

Activity pairing can include day and night time considerations.  Moonbeam is a perfectly balanced sativa and indica strain leaving a relax ending after two hours.  We could be productive or just relax and chill with this Strawberry Banana making this a versatile strain.


Moonbeam (Strawberry Banana) by LBS (Canopy)

Strawberry strains are happy, uplifted, euphoric, energetic, relaxed and dreamy.   We really like the Strawberry genetics and this Moonbeam by LBS delivers a classic blissful and dreamy “high.”  Morning, afternoons or evenings are all good times for Strawberry Banana.  We just wished it wasn’t packaged on June 22, 2019! over a year ago!

Quality: 8.1

Intensity: 8.1

Duration: 8.0

Total:  8.1

Would we buy this again?  We did like to see this strain below $10 a gram before buying it again.  Calm Strawberry Twist, also a Strawberry Banana, by Sundial cost $32.95 for 3.5 grams and is fresher and just as good, or better.  But if you haven’t tried Moonbeam by LBS, we believe it is worth trying to expand the horizon hopefully with a fresher batch.

On an investment note, Organigram betting on Cannabis 2.0 and Edibles reduce staff by 25% is more gut wrenching news for investors.  Canopy is also betting big on Cannabis 2.0 in Beverages.  Let’s see what happens.
