Headband Strain

Indica Dominant Hybrid 60% Indica / 40% Sativa

THC: 17% - 24%

Headband is a classic standby, effective and easy to find almost anywhere. It's available on both the legal and black markets, but it's most popular on the West Coast. This strain is a cross of two venerable parents, OG Kush and Sour Diesel, making for a 40:60 sativa/indica ratio. Headband is named after its famed cerebral effects, as it creates a sensation of pressure across the forehead similar to a headband. THC levels can reach higher than 17-24%, putting this on the top shelf of potent strains. CBD levels are low, less than 0.5%, so Headband is better used to treat conditions that respond to THC. Though the strain delivers a strong mix of euphoria and creativity, it's better used as a rainy-day strain, as it tends to cause a spacey feeling that can hinder daytime tasks. The strongest effects are centered on the body, making it a good choice for chronic pain and anxiety. It can also be used to treat nausea and wasting conditions, as well as mood disorders, muscle spasms, and migraines. Headband has a smooth, creamy taste with undertones of lemon and diesel. Expect dry mouth and dry eyes; other negative effects are more rare.

Knocked me on my ass and it didn't take much wow


A strain that is intense yet also strangely calming, headband is loud and well deserving of it's reputation. True to it's name, smoking large amounts of this strain create a "headband" sensation in the forehead, along with powerful full-body relaxation and euphoria. At the same time, the high can be very heady with strong psychedelic effects at higher doses. This strain is the perfect answer to headaches and migraines, as well as other types of chronic pain and a wide variety of other conditions. The buds of this strain take after their sour diesel heritage very strongly, with a very sour, gassy odor to them. At the same time, the lemony, piney scents and flavors of the OG parent also shine through, creating a very pungent, sour yet fruity flavor when smoked. The buds are very dense and show off a spectrum of colors ranging from light yellows, to deep emerald greens and are generally covered in orange/brown hairs. Overall, headband is an amazing recreational smoke and will impress veterans and newbies alike. I find this strain to be perfect for stress, anxiety and depression, but also for those suffering from chronic pain and especially migraines. It's generally not overly sedating, making it good for those that need pain relief while remaining functional. Too much can cause severe couchlock, so smoke with caution.


Absolutely love this strain. I am an army vet with severe PTSD and it works to calm and relax. Especially good when made into edibles


Just fabulous. The other day I went to bed 78 years old. Early this morining I had a hit of my grandson'sheadband, and I feel twenty five all day, My arthritis pain in my knees elbows and neck have been more than manage-able all day.. I actually went on the field and walked fast all over tthe place until I actually intercepted the ball.. It is now time for bed. I have had an incredible time with this sstrain.I can nnnnow get some of my life back... I know what to do now in order to move with less pain.Highly recommend it...Kool...increase in inter-.generatioonal knowledge happening now.......


Delete if not allowed. 5.5 stars I had a headband x creme de la chem hybrid ( bandolyn in CT mmj disp) and it is a sledgehammer. Got the headband feeling in less than 20 min and it felt really nice. Sampled at 30 % it doesnt look or smell compared to others at this range. It will surprise the hell out of you. Tasted earthy to me. This is not something to put in a pre roll or joint if you are a newcomer. Only a small amount is needed. Was dense AF too. Some of the nugs were like rocks lol. Bet it makes noise when it comes falling out of the script bottle. Gonna try this one out while gardening or camping this year , bet it makes the outdoors even better. When you see it, GET it. It goes fast.


Great smoke, this is pretty much a go to in my circle


So let’s clear this up first. There are many crosses of OG Kush and Sour Diesel. Sour Kush is one. OGiesel is another. I’m sure there is more, but this is my favorite of the bunch. The flavor and high are the best. This last batch was sour on the inhale and sweet on the exhale. Love the overall name, flavor and effects🤪


nasty didnt feel a thang thought i was smoking inscents


Not my bud. I have vertigo, the head pressure and heaviness wasn't my thing. I wasn't hungry, took a long nap. Seemed to help with nausea. I love the smell and taste. It has a cherry like note with a strong fruit scent.


Very good medicine, helps with the headaches and neck pain. I've had Headband in form of concentrate oil few times and it's always consistent every time I vaped.
