Headband Strain 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.
Headband is named after its famed cerebral effects, as it creates a sensation of pressure across the forehead similar to a headband. 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. It has a smooth, creamy taste with undertones of lemon and diesel.
The initial smell of the cured flowers is tangy and lemony. Underneath these dominant scents is a faint skunkiness, along with some notes of pine. Unlike some other indicas — particularly OGs — Headband produces smoke that is thick but surprisingly smooth. This smoke has a rounded, creamy mouthfeel and tastes citrusy when inhaled. On the exhale, a more diesel, chemical funk is present. The overall taste sensation is of lemon-scented cleaning fluid that hits the user at the front of the palate.
