The indica-dominant hybrid Headband strain is a cannabis strain known for creating a vague yet appealing sensation of pressure around the top of the skull that feels as if the consumer is wearing an invisible headband. It smells and tastes like lemons and diesel, with an earthy, herbal undertone.
Its THC level averages at 14.5% but has been known to be as high as 21.5.%. Its high comes on slowly, but is long-lasting and described as a great for relieving both pain and stress. It will leave the consumer feeling spacey as some sativa effects emerge, with a sensation of euphoria – so this strain is not ideal for social situations or critical thinking and decision making.
Dry eyes and mouth are to be expected, but some have reported slight headaches after the high wears down as well as dizziness and paranoia.
Growers can expect high yields when growing indoors within nine to ten weeks, while moderately experienced growers have successfully cultivated this strain outdoors.
