Description

One of the most visually-striking samples we’ve received, with quite the potency punch, as it knocked our review staff for a bit of a loop with its trippy effects full of hallucinations and a head-spinning initial attack. Once it calmed down a bit though it provided great mood elevation, relaxation, and mild pain relief. We’d warn beginners against this strain, as even a small 0.1g dosage was more than enough to put an experienced patient in another mental dimension for a solid 2.5 hours. If you want a bit of a rollercoaster ride and enjoy the taste of a Sour Diesel or Kush, you owe yourself to try this superb example of Headband, as it was by consensus the best example of it that we’ve ever tried.

Lineage

Chemdog (Chem 91) x (Massachussets Super Skunk x Northern Lights)

Story

Originally named Diesel #1 when made on the East Coast by a breeder known as Weasel, it was nicknamed Underdog, and Daywrecker Diesel, before making its way to California to be renamed Headband by a breeder called Loompa.

The Northern Lights used in the father was from original Sensi Seeds stock.

Appearance

Stacked tight emerald green spearhead calyxes with occasional eggplant accented water leaves, brick red pistils, medium-length thick-stemmed trichomes with large heads

Aroma

This is definitely a Diesel-tinged bouquet, especially before being ground up — it was very pungent in the jar, almost more than it was when handled. The mix of fuel, skunk, spice, bitter citrus, and rubber retains its pungency until it settles a bit, when the aroma changes to more of a soft, slightly sweet presence.

Flavor

Much like the smell, but with more of a skunky, rubbery, fuel empahsis to it, and notes of citrus-pine sharpness, with a thick, expansive smoke.

Qualities

The “phantom sweatband” feeling was in full effect with this sample, as all reviewers reported a near-immediate rush of blood to the head and that familiar constrictive feeling around the perimeter. Almost dizzying to start, this sample was truly potent and took even our experienced reviewers a bit by surprise.

Another interesting similarity was the shared experience of auditory hallucinations, with one reviewer reporting body vibrations coming from sounds and music far more than normal. The high was concentrated in the head, face, and eyes, with some visual hallucinations and an increase in “eye floaters.” It eventually took us to a slightly more relaxed state, where the indica side came out a bit. The finish for this strain was very clean and actually seemed to give us a bump in energy instead of the more common sativa “crash.”

Headband Marijuana Strain

About Headband Marijuana

Headband, which gets its name from the light pressure around your forehead you experience after smoking, is the offspring of OG Kush and Sour Diesel. The result is a hybrid that is 60% Indica and 40% Sativa. Headband buds are usually small and dense. The leaves range from light green to purple, and the flower typically boasts an impressive amount of trichomes. You will notice a lemony taste and smell, which can be attributed to the OG Kush, highlighted with a hint of diesel. Unlike many of our other Indica-leading hybrids, Headband produces a thick, smooth, creamy smoke. While the smoke is smoother than almost any other Kush, don’t let that fool you, the THC level of this this strain measures in at a robust 19%.

Headband Strain Effects

The Headband high is known to be a creeper. It may take as long as 20 minutes to feel it’s full effect, but once it has hit you, there will be no doubt about its potency. Although technically a 60/40 hybrid, the strain’s indica effect is profound, while its sativa attributes are minimal. The result is an intense body high, with high levels of euphoria, while also experiencing low energy and a hindered concentration. For these reasons, Headband is best enjoyed at the end of a night, or on a rainy day.
