Appearance, Flavour, and Effects
There’s no denying that Headband has some serious bag appeal. Put simply. It’s gorgeous! The buds are small and nugget-like. The Headband leaves are an even and pleasant pale green. However, some plant phenotypes may contain varying shades of purple. As you’d expect from a hybrid strain with such high THC levels, the Headband flowers are covered in silvery-white trichomes that are sticky to the touch. In this way, the buds are pretty tough to break apart without using a weed grinder.
That said, Headband isn’t just another pretty face! It also smells divine! This strain has a sweet yet pungent aroma that is distinctly lemony. The bud is extremely fragrant and will likely take over the entire room. With lineage from parent strain Sour Diesel, Headband also has a distinct diesel undertone that may linger in the air. Users can also expect a shock of earthiness to it. When it comes to its flavour, Headband is in a league of its own! This hybrid is known for its sweet lemon flavour. It also has a creamy note that sets it apart. When smoked, Headband leaves a tangy citrusy yet earthy flavour in your mouth, with just a hint of fresh lavender.
The smoke from Headband is surprisingly smooth, with a rounded, creamy mouthfeel.
Some people believe that Headband gets its name after headband-wearing hippies. In reality, its name comes from the sensation of pressure that users feel around their temples when smoking it. This feeling occurs as the strain’s high THC levels dilate blood vessels in the face. Headband effects come on slowly, with some users stating that you may not notice it for up to 20 minutes after consuming.
The high itself produces a spacey, foggy sensation in the head. It also causes a physically weighty feeling that spreads throughout the body. In other words, don’t make any plans, because couchlock is coming your way! Headband is an ideal strain for kicking back and participating in passive activities, like watching movies or listening to music. It’s also fantastic to get in touch with your creative side. Its ability to create a sensation of feeling outside your body also makes Headband a potential aphrodisiac. You know what that means! Bow-chicka-wow-wow!
In terms of medical uses, Headband has quite a few! Its powerful sedative properties serve as a fantastic remedy for depression and anxiety. In large enough doses, it’s also great for treating insomnia. Headband is also known to make users feel hungry, making it excellent for appetite stimulation. With its uplifting effects, this hybrid is also effective for tackling stress.
It’s worth mentioning that the high from Headband is said to last longer than average, even in users with higher THC tolerances.
