Banana Runtz from Syngery Cannabis

Banana Runtz from Syngery Cannabis via a generous benefactor that prefer to remain nameless on 9/12/19. Originally picked up at Cookies Melrose. THC tested out to 25.37%. Purchased originally for $50 plus tax. I loved Golden State Banana so I was stoked to be given the opportunity to check out these Banana Runtz. The one big bud I was gifted had a nice solid structure. As you run your eyes across the nug surface it quickly switches back and forth from dark to light green with gangly reddish brown pistils and a generous frosting of triches so numerous at points it’s hard to make out the color at all.

The nose out of the jar is musty and peppery in a way that hit me like the smell of opening a drawer of real wood dresser that’s been untouched in storage for a long time. On busting the nug you get a surprisingly fruity scent and it relegates that mustiness to the background. On the hand grind is where the Runtz really shines through. I pick up on a very sugary sweet candy like scent that leaves a bit of stickiness on my fingers. On the inhale I caught a hint of that pepper and it was a little bit harsh on the throat. On the exhale I got just a bit of musty sweetness. The headchange comes on fast and has a nice smack to it but won’t leave you dazed or couchlocked. It’s a very even keel hybrid that hits you in the eyes but doesn’t make you feel too tired. I’d say it’s a good midday strain that would suit any activity you have going, whether it’s channel surfing or actual surfing, Banana Runtz would make a decent companion. I might pick this up again depending on what else is available as it wasn’t a bad experience but it wasn’t anything too special either. If it were between this and the Golden State Banana I’d gravitate toward the GSB every time. If you find it at a ticket you’re comfortable with I’d say it’s worth a shot if you like what you’ve read on it here. Definitely looking forward to trying more from the team at Synergy Cannabis!

Golden State Banana from Synergy Cannabis Co

Golden State Banana from Synergy Cannabis via Cana Farms on 7/17/19. THC tested out to 27.95%. Purchased for $50 plus tax minus 20% early bird discount. I’d had seen this strain making its way around instagram as of late so I decided to give it a shot. The buds have a sort of thick trident look to them. Light green spikey nugs with occasional orange brown pistils absolutely flooded with large salt-like triches clinging to the surface at any point they can find.

On opening the jar there is this musty earthy nose with a hint of muted fruit in the background. After finger grinding it, there’s this beautiful sweet scent that’s unlocked, its hard to pin down but I’d day it smells something similar to a pack of old school Lifesavers. It has this sort of zing to it that makes my mouthwater just a bit. The inhale is smooth and I noticed a musty taste on the exhale with hints of vanilla sweetness. As for the headchange, this herb has a surprising smack that will leave your bell rung after the first bowl if you’re not prepared. The first time I smoked it, I was a friends new place and looked down to pack what I felt like must have been my 3rd or 4th bowl, only to realize I didn’t know where to ash it because I had just finished the very first one. In my stoney state I was stunned by this realization and had the simple of thought of “Wow, this shit is REALLY good.” In the subsequent bowls since I haven’t been as thwacked as I now know what to expect but that doesn’t take away from the fact that Golden State Banana absolutely thumps with authority and will leave you dazed. If you’re looking for a solid indica that doesn’t couchlock you but does pack a wallop then you’ll definitely be happy with GSB. This was a great introduction to the Synergy Cannabis line up and I’m extremely interested to try out some of their other offerings if they are of similar caliber to what I’ve experienced here. Definitely would pick it up again without hesitation.
