The Headband marijuana strain got its name due to having a headband-like feeling during the high. This Indica-dominant strain was produced by combining the famous OG Kush and Sour Diesel. Its lineage has a distinct aroma and flavor profile, which they have passed down to this strain. The distinct pungent sweet lemon notes mixed with earthiness have caused mouths to water. The Headband offers a calming and soothing effect that often feels like a warm blanket wrapped around the smokers.

The Headband strain emits a pungent lemony scent that can fill in an entire room as soon as it enters. Mixed on the aroma profile is a sweet fragrance with some diesel-like and earthy notes. Once inhaled, it has a creamy flavor that is distinguishable and some hints of a sweet lemon taste. As soon as the smoke is released, a tangy but earthy flavor with some fresh lavender notes remain.
Smoking the Headband releases a wave of ideas and imaginations that are great for brainstorming sessions and artists who are in a creative slump. The Indica effects are evident during the high as smokers will feel completely relaxed and euphoric at the same time. After some time, a sensation that feels like wearing a headband manifests in the head. The high lasts for about 2 to 3 hours and becomes even more intense within more tokes. Eventually, the body is completely calm that can even lead to sleep.
The Headband strain has sedative properties that are able to relieve patients suffering from insomnia. This strain can be used as an alternative to synthetic sleeping pills. While the smoker is in a completely lighter and brighter state, the mind is clear from any worries. Thus, those who have depression, anxiety, and under a lot of stress will find relief when consuming this strain.
The analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties can reduce swelling and the constant pain from migraines, arthritis, and even cramps.
While the mind and body enjoy the numerous benefits of the Headband strain, common side effects may still arise even with low doses. The itchiness from conditions like dry eyes and dry mouth can lead to irritations. Fortunately, a way to have an undisturbed smoking session is by hydrating the body before taking a hit.
On the other hand, high doses are not for inexperienced individuals and have low tolerance toward the THC component. Doing so can lead to headaches, nausea, and dizziness.
Novice growers and even those with advanced skills can easily grow the Headband. It can be cultivated in both outdoor and indoor environments. This plant must be exposed to a warm and sunny climate. Also, a wet setting with too much rain is harmful to the plant. The humidity levels should be monitored from time to time to prevent frosts.
Outdoors, the Headband can give around 21 ounces per plant. These buds can be harvested around the middle of October. On the other hand, for indoor growing, this plant offers about 18 ounces per square meter of fresh and quality buds that can be harvested after 49 to 70 days.
