Bruce Banner takes it's namesake from the alter-ego of comic book superhero the Hulk and it receives this name with good reason as it is quite a powerful strain. Bruce Banner actually comes in three specific variants, with Bruce Banner #3 being the most coveted of the three. Initially, 5 Bruce Banner strains existed, Bruce Banner #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5. Bruce Banner #2 and #4 were both quickly drop, with #1, #3, and #5 taking precedence. Bruce Banner #3 ranked first place in the Denver US Cannabis Cup, and is the most potent strain ever tested in the history of the High Times Cannabis Cups. Bruce Banner received a great amount of hype in 2009, right as medical cannabis started receiving a better reception in the mainstream. Bruce Banner has more going for it than a clever name and high THC content, however. This Sativa dominant hybrid strain packs quite a punch with a great balance between the Sativa and Indica effects.
