Headband is a famous hybrid that provides a one-of-a-kind experience. Great for headache relief, Headband creates an odd yet pleasant pressure around the cranium. And yes, it actually feels like you're wearing a headband.

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 earned its name for a reason. This Indica-dominant hybrid is famous for the odd pressure it creates around your head. This cerebral fogginess often makes people feel like they're wearing a headband, hence the name. A foggy-headed sensation isn't the only trait worth mentioning, however. This strain is fairly well-balanced, beginning with an uplifting and energetic head high. These heady feelings eventually give way to a powerful state of physical relaxation. An hour into the Headband experience, you may find yourself stuck to the couch. This potent hybrid is the product of an OG Kush and Sour Diesel cross. The result is a legendary strain with soaring THC levels. Headband's THC content typically tests at over 20% but can range between 18 and 27%.

 

Traits of Headband and Headband Seeds


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 aromas 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.

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.

Growing Tips

Headband grows well both indoors and out. Yet, if you're growing outside, you'll want to plant seedlings after all risk of frost. You may also want to make sure that this plant is sheltered in wet climates, and give it plenty of sunlight.Headband does not get as tall as Sour Diesel and does not get as wide as OG Kush, so she sits right in the middle. Indoors, make sure temperatures don't exceed 80°F (27°C) and keep humidity to 50%. Like most indoor plants, adequate circulation is a must. Keep Headband nice and pruned to give buds room to breathe. This strain likes moderate amount of nutrients but isn't too picky. Overall, Headband is a good choice for novice growers.
