Headband Strain Review
At first glance, “Headband” may seem like a weird name for a cannabis strain. But after a good sesh with this one, you’ll know exactly what its name is all about.
This strain produces insane head highs. They’re so strong, in fact, that most people feel a slight pressure around their heads—almost like they’ve got a headband on. This head high will leave you feeling happy, euphoric, and glad you got your hands on some.
Headband is an Indica dominant hybrid. And it’s definitely more potent than your average strain. While most Indicas test around 12.5% THC, this one averages 14.5% THC. And buds from this strain can go as high as 21.5% THC.
Any way you look at it, Headband’s got the kind of THC levels capable of delivering some hard-hitting highs. And that’s exactly what it does.
After using Headband, you’ll immediately notice a euphoric head buzz. As the high settles in, you’ll become relaxed and happy. And you’ll probably start spacing out a bit.
Underneath all this heavy cerebral activity, you may also experience a pleasant bodily relaxation. But not so much that you’ll feel couch locked. In fact, a lot of people get a little boost of energy from Headband.
Scent & Flavor
The smooth smoke you’ll get from Headband nugs will taste like a nice mix of citrus and diesel. Most users compare it to Kush with notes of sour and pine.
Since this one hits the head so hard, some people end up feeling some negative cerebral effects. The most common are headaches, dizziness, and paranoia.
Headband can be pretty powerful. So go slow at first to be sure you have a positive experience.
You probably shouldn’t use this one if you’ve still got important things to do. You’ll be too spaced out. But when you’re ready to relax and have a good time, this is an excellent choice.
It can also be a good choice when you’re trying to get creative. And since it gives many people a little energizing boost, it can be a great all-around recreational choice. Try it as a little pre-game action before heading out for the night. Or puff with friends for a fun, uplifting hang out.
When it comes to medical uses, some patients have success using Headband to treat stress, depression, and some mood disorders. The gentle body highs can also help patients cope with light aches, pains, and headaches. But it’s probably not enough for more serious pain.
Both of its parents are basically household names in the cannabis community. With genetics like this, you know you can’t go wrong. By delivering some incredible cerebral highs, Headband is definitely keeping the family tradition alive.
Expect the plants to begin flowering around nine to ten weeks. Buds will be a beautiful shade of green with plenty of orange-red hairs.
Headband requires only moderate growing experience. So if you’ve already grown a couple times and you’re looking to expand your green thumb repertoire, this could be a good choice for your next grow.
