Headband, was discovered by combining OG Kush x Master Kush and Sour Diesel. The smooth, creamy smoke is accented by flavors of lemons and diesel while the long-lasting effects are great for pain relief, helping you to relax, and to combat elevated stress levels. Many report that the effects create a slight pressure around the crown of their head and feels as though they are wearing a headband. The effects have been known to come on slow, so pace yourself with this potent hybrid.
Headband is a potent surefire path to relaxation, mild creativity, and an overall trippy good times. Although it has an appealing citrus flavor, this novelty doesn’t come at the expense of genetic stability or potency as with many new crossbreeds in the cannabis market today. Headband’s high trichome composition also makes it an easy choice for the production of hash and other THC concentrates.
Headband produces versatile plants that can be grown by those with limited to moderate experience. It is not as vulnerable as many other strains to mold or disease; it can also withstand some degree of temperature variation. This heartiness makes Headband a solid outdoor crop in warm temperate climates.
Headband can also be easily grown indoors: its plants have a characteristic indica shape, with a short and bushy silhouette. In order to let light reach low-growing flowering nodes, growers should attempt to trim any broad fan leaves – but they may not find many, due to this strain’s low leaf-to-bud ratio.
Finally, because it is so skunky and potent, growers of Headband may want to take some extra caution with plants — isolating outdoor growing locations and installing odor control measures indoor growing environments.
Medically, Headband’s powerful sedative properties serve as a remedy for mild anxiety and, in large enough doses, for chronic insomnia.
Fans of the strain have also reported improvement in symptoms associated with migraines and muscle spasms.
Headband has been known to provoke appetite, making it a supplementary treatment for users suffering from decreased hunger due to disease or chemotherapy.
Negative side effects include a feeling of dizziness, dry mouth, and thanks to the same expansion of blood vessels that causes this strain’s trademark facial pressure — red eyes. The high from Headband is said to last longer than average, even in users with a relatively high tolerance for THC.
The high from Headband mounts slowly, with some users reporting that they may not notice effects for up to 20 minutes after consuming.
With very little sativa effects, Headband induces a spacey, foggy state that makes it poorly suited to tasks that require focus and mental acuity.
Headband gives users a physically weighty feeling that spreads down through the spine and radiates out to the limbs, comfortably locking them into supine position. This sense of couchlock makes Headband ideal for couch-locked activities in comfortable surroundings. It could also serve as inspiration for some general creative thinking. The psychedelic sense of disconnection from one’s own body makes Headband a potential aphrodisiac as well.
Buds of Headband are small and are more like nuggets than dense, spade-like cones. The leaves are an even, pale green, although some plant phenotypes have a higher propensity for shades of purple (the result of cold temperatures activating anthocyanin compounds during the vegetative period).
As might be expected of a strain with a high THC, Headband flowers are covered in silvery-white trichomes and are sticky to the touch –this is one strain that proves difficult to breakup for joints or pipes without using a grinder.
The initial smell of the cured flowers is tangy and lemony. Underneath these dominant scents is a faint skunkiness, along with some notes of pine.
