Headband is an oddity among cannabis strains. Sure, it’s a relaxing hybrid that leans indica-dominant, but it sure causes an interesting sensation on your head. The strain earned its name because it tends to make you feel like you’re wearing a headband. Though this sounds odd, the experience is quite pleasant. Many turn to this strain for headaches and migraine relief.

Headband is the product of a cross between two of the most popular marijuana strains in the world; OG Kush and Sour Diesel. This Hybrid strain can pack a potent punch, making it a favorite for recreational and medical patients looking to relieve pain and stress. Newcomers may want to be careful, as Headband’s THC levels can reach as high as 27%.

 

Headband Experience

Headband is a hybrid, meaning you will experience both a body buzz and some cerebral activation. The most common buds are slightly indica-dominant, meaning that you can expect more sedation and physical relaxation than mental clarity and raciness.

As briefly mentioned, the signature experience from a Headband strain is an enjoyable pressure around the head. That makes this strain a great choice for headache relief or excess muscle tension in the neck.

The indica lineage in Headband will help the body sink into a calm relaxation. Hybrid genetics prevent this strain from becoming too sedative.

The head-high you’ll experience is euphoric and upbeat. This strain may not be the best wake ‘n bake bud, but it does promote a happy and easygoing mood. Stresses accrued throughout the day will soon be forgotten and replaced by an easygoing, mellow buzz. An hour into the Headband experience, you may find yourself stuck to the couch.

For both recreational and medical consumers, this strain is recommended for late afternoon or evening use. It tends to be a little more sedative than you’d like for a daytime hybrid, but this strain is the perfect choice for a lazy day.

Traits of Headband 

Headband is an indica-dominant hybrid famous for its unique effects. A child of OG Kush and Sour Diesel, this calming flower is known for creating an odd yet pleasant headband like sensation around the crown of the head. Why exactly this is the case is unclear.

Yet, what is certain is that it inherited it’s indica effects from its OG Kush lineage. Sour Diesel is a potent sativa flower, adding a slight cerebral uplift to this strain.

Though both OG Kush and Sour Diesel are known for their potency, it’s unlikely that it will be the most potent strain on the shelf. On average, the THC content in the buds averages about 20%.

Featuring a distinct, diesel fuel and lemon aroma, this strain is as pungent as it is potent. This strain retains the singular diesel taste of its parent plant, Sour Diesel, as well as creamy lemon flavors and aroas cutting through. Real marijuana connoisseurs will notice the faint pine and skunk flavors, while the palate is dominated by that famous chemical diesel on the exhale.

Medical Benefits of Headband

For both recreational and medical consumers, this strain is recommended for late afternoon or evening use. It tends to be a little more sedative than you’d like for a daytime hybrid, but this strain is the perfect choice for a lazy day.

  • Patients tend to like this strain for ADD/ADHD, chronic stress, mild aches and pains, and headaches. 
  • Inflammatory conditions like arthritis also tend to respond well to Headband.
  • The sedative effects of this strain make it well suited to treat mild anxiety.
  • In higher doses, the sedative effects may even be potent enough to treat chronic insomnia.
