John Grow #3 is back! John Grow #3 submitted to our partners at Origo Labs his most recently harvested Barney’s Farm Tropicanna Banana for Cannabinoids and Terpenes tests. Tropicanna Banana is a sativa-dominant hybrid (60% sativa, 40% indica) and is a cross between Girl Scout Cookies and Tangie with a twist of Banana Kush.

The Tropicanna Banana tested at 15.292% total Cannabinoids, including 0.241% CBGa. As the Origo Labs pie chart reports, this terpenes profile was led by limonene (0.294%) and trans-caryophyllene (0.265%). The next two primary terpenes included β-myrcene (0.189%) and linalool (0.184%). The final two terpenes included α-humulene (0.093%) and terpineol (0.018%).
The Medical Results
This one spade-shaped bud of Tropicanna Banana is olive green with lighter and dark green shades and covered in creamy trichomes. The aroma is a pungent sweet orange with hints of fruits, citrus, mint, and kush. The flavor takes on the Tangie parent with a pungent and extremely sweet orange. The GSC parent then adds another layer of sweetness with a blend of sweet kush and cookie dough. Underneath those tasty flavors, the strain hits with notes of a citrus cherry, mint, and lemon.
The potent cerebral high is caught between the Tangie and GSC strains to land somewhere in the middle or maybe a slight lean more toward the focused and uplifting Tangie qualities with smaller doses but with several doses, the head high becomes a little more “gappy,” especially in the later stages of the buzz.
The GSC parent delivers a heavy body buzz that takes a little time to sink in, but once it does, it last for a few hours. The body buzz is strong but not overwhelming to where you just want to relax on the couch. A good energy stays with the buzz throughout. Late in the buzz, though, the Banana Kush adds an extra calming indica influence.
The Tropicanna Banana also delivers a boost to the appetite, especially late in the buzz and is perfect for noon, afternoon, and evening tokes. Also a perfect spring and summer strain.
Medical Patient Homegrown vs. Cultivators
So is this Medical Patient Homegrown not as good as, as good as, or better than dispensary flower? Or is it the fire of Illinois medicine? Tropicanna Banana easily compares to the sativa-leaning hybrids on Illinois dispensary menus. Of course, the Tropicanna Banana was dried, cured, and trimmed with care without drying out the terpenes in the packaging. So John Grow #3’s medicine is as good or better, cheaper , and better cured than what he can purchase at a dispensary.
Patient Growing Experience
How long have you been a registered Illinois Medical Patient? I have been a registered Illinois Medical Patient since 12/6/2019.
How long have you been growing your own medicine? I have been growing my own medicine off and on for 20 years.
Why did you start growing your own medicine? I started growing my own medicine because it was the most affordable way for me to medicate. I also grow because it enables me to not have to rely on anybody else but myself when obtaining medication. I also produce my own medication so that I can ensure that it is organic.
What do you want to add about growing at home in Illinois? I would just like to point out how easy and how enjoyable it is to grow cannabis. There’s a substantial percentage of the medical cannabis population who cannot afford the cost of medical cannabis; therefore, the state has allowed us to grow in order to make it more accessible for those who cannot afford medical prices.
