Headband is potent hybrid. It is a popular strain that can easily be found in California. It is a cross between Sour Diesel, Master Kush and OG Kush.
The cannabis community is at odds when it comes to labeling whether this strain is more sativa or indica dominant. Some suggest that Headband is a sativa-dominant hybrid because of the OG lineage. The high that this strain produces also suggests that this is a sativa-dominant strain.
Headband provides a very heady high. Many would agree that it feels like there is a slight pressure wrapping around the crown of the head. Like wearing a headband.
This strain is difficult to grow because it requires training the plants to improve yields. This is due to the popcorn looking buds that this strain produces. It can grow in hydroponics or by using the SCROG method. It can grow indoors and outdoors but prefers temperatures between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
This phenotype is a dainty eater. It is recommended that growers pay close attention when it comes to feeding this type of strain. Growers need to make sure that they are not under feeding their plant and that they are not burning their plant.
The plant will be ready for harvest within 9 to 10 weeks. Expect medium to low yields, which can be improved with proper training and nutrients. If grown indoors the yields also improve. During flower time, the garden will exude a strong diesel like aroma.
The high associated with this strain makes people feel foggy and spacy. It is a creeper weed that takes a few minutes for people to start feeling its effects. Smokers will start to stare off into space and then snap back into reality wondering what just happened. Many people reported feeling happy, relaxed, euphoric, uplifted and creative after a few puffs of Headband.
This strain also provides relief from medical issues. Some of these issues are relief from stress, pain, depression, headaches and fatigue. Medical patients found this strain useful for combating migraines, muscles spasms and to help improve appetite. Most people complain about dry mouth when smoking Headband. But having a cool refreshing beverage nearby or bubble gum helps combat that issue.
Dry eyes are another common complaint, but the cure for dry eyes is eye drops. Other negative effects include headaches, paranoia and dizziness. Keep an eye on dosages and all will be well. Remember, Headband is a strong creeper weed and the high lasts for hours. Keep calm and lay back if the high becomes too much to handle.
When opening a jar of Headband, expect a waft of skunkiness and pine. The smoke will be thick but it provides a smooth creamy citrusy taste on inhale. On exhale, expect a chemically diesel like taste. The lingering aftertaste in your mouth tends to remind people of lemon scented cleaners.
When loading a bowl, it is difficult to break apart. The buds are covered in white trichomes and are very sticky. It is better to use a grinder to break up these buds instead of using fingers. You’ll just end up squishing and flattening your weed if you use your fingers.
Headband is a strain that provides a sense of relaxation, mild creativity and an intoxicating good time. It is recommended that smokers enjoy this strain in the evening. This is because the head high tends to trickle down a person’s body and create a wonderful body buzz. It is also considered an aphrodisiac.
