Physical Characteristics: Medium-amber colored shatter with a hard candy consistency.
TIP: You can break pieces off and warm them up between your fingers to make shatters pliable and last longer.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this product.
In its intact state, this shatter emitted a light, generic hash-like aroma. I did not detect any banana aroma. When dabbed, I tasted very light fresh banana and grass notes followed by a hash-like sweetness. The banana component was barely present at all on my palate, even at low temps.

Effects: I have never tried Banana OG in its flower or extract forms, so I’ve no prior experience by which to judge this shatter. My research indicates that this high should be a potent mind and body experience with a creeper element. My experience was quite different. For me, the effects felt like a generic THC flat high with no real nuanced effects. It didn’t creep up on me either.
Duration of Effects: 2 hours
May Help With: Helped with mood. May also help with mild pain, stress, depression, appetite (and more).
To me and my palate, this shatter was underwhelming.
