Cannabis Strain Review: Bruce Banner 3

If you thought that Bruce Banner was the mild-mannered, controlled alter-ego of the Hulk, you are sorely mistaken. Instead, our green goddess of the same name shares an unrelenting potency that will bring the uninitiated to new heights of euphoric pleasure. Read the full review to see why she should be your next strain of choice.


The impact of her genetics has been felt ever since she initially made waves in Colorado, USA. From her original conception, numerous Cannabis Cup awards have followed, yet her winning formula has remained untouched.

OG Kush provided tried and tested potency, while Strawberry Diesel hit smokers with a taste sensation. As a result, cannabis enthusiasts, Cannabis Cup judges, and everyone in between worships BB#3 for near-unrivalled THC concentration.

Predominantly sativa, the high of Bruce Banner 3 is a treat for mind and body. The first thing that hits are the refreshing berry flavors, swirling like a creamy strawberry milkshake in your mouth. Once you have taken a moment to appreciate the initial burst of flavour, notes of pine and earth start to appear. Finally, the entire hit is topped off with distinct yet familiar Kush undertones. With your body reeling from the taste sensation, Bruce Banner 3 gets to work on your mind.

Although sativas are generally renowned for providing an uplifting and energetic high, Bruce Banner 3 takes all expectations and ups the ante with her glowing green buds. THC can measure a staggering 27% in some phenotypes, a concentration that is easily capable of blowing off any brain fog and supercharging your productivity.

Well-versed cannabis connoisseurs often refer to her high as being an “upper,” ideal for when an intense burst of inspiration is needed. Thanks to her overall energizing effect, Bruce Banner 3 can be enjoyed morning, noon, and night. Just make sure you have plenty of creative exploits to keep you going when she kicks in.


That is not to say novice growers cannot try to contain her prowess, however, to get the most out of her, a seasoned hand is recommended. Reaching 120–150cm tall, her stocky figure cuts an imposing shape in any grower’s garden. The only suggestion of her potency are the bright green buds and orange-colored pistils that waft a subtle strawberry aroma. Under certain lights, it is even possible to detect hints of purple in her dense nugs, further evidence of her links to the incredible superhero creation, the Hulk.

Regular topping is recommended, especially during her early stages to make sure sufficient energy is put into robust growth. Because she can be quite demanding of her environment, ScrOG makes a viable method for optimizing her yields—in excess of 400g/m² indoors and 900g/plant outdoors. If you are not a seasoned cannabis enthusiast upon first harvesting her, you will be by the time you clear an entire stash.

How long does it take for her mind-altering marijuana to develop? 63–70 days, which, despite being slightly longer than typical strains, is more than worth the wait. As we are sure you will agree, Bruce Banner 3 is no typical strain. The only question you need to ask yourself is if you have the skills, tolerance, and determination to contain this potent beast.
