Headband is an unbeatable indica-dominant hybrid strain that has become a West Coast favorite. This one-of-a-kind strain is the result of a triple cross involving OG Kush, Sour Diesel, and Master Kush. It’s no wonder it’s so popular; with THC levels ranging from 16-20%, it packs a potent punch and offers a stoney high with amazing medicinal benefits.
Headband is known for its unique effects that can be felt almost immediately upon smoking. Many users report a slight pressure around their head, similar to wearing a headband, giving the strain its name. Aside from this sensation, it produces a relaxing body high while simultaneously elevating your mood, leaving you feeling uplifted and euphoric. But beware: it can be quite easy to overindulge in this strain, so it’s best to take it slow. Headband is best enjoyed during the evening and can easily lead to couch-lock, making it difficult to do anything but relax.
Headband offers many medicinal benefits, making it a great choice for treating a variety of conditions. It is particularly useful for reducing stress, depression, and pain, as well as treating headaches, migraines, nausea, and hyperactivity. However, novice users should be cautious with this strain, as its potent effects can cause headaches and paranoia.
Appearance, Aroma, and Taste
Headband produces small nugget-shaped buds that are a pale-ish green and may even have shades of purple, depending on the growing environment. Its trichomes give the buds a silver-white glisten and the aroma is a mix of diesel and earth with a hint of lemon. The smoke is smooth and the taste is enhanced by both the diesel and lemon notes. Overall, Headband is an excellent strain that is accessible to all smokers.
