Origins, Genetics, History

Headband is the offspring of the popular and powerful Sour Diesel and OG Kush. This produces and powerful, pungent bud that wraps the body in euphoric warmth. It is said to feel like you are wearing a headband around your head, protecting you from pain and anxiety. This is where the name ‘Headband’ comes from.

The headband is Indica dominant, at 60%. This provides the relaxing effects users seek to wind down after a long day or to treat chronic pain. It has a high THC content. The headband is said to cause the blood vessels around the ears and temples to open up, and that creates the headband feeling and may improve blood flow to the brain.

Its origins are disputed. It may have been developed by the Reserva Privada breeders of Colorado, while others claim it was developed in Humboldt County in California. In either case, the result is a smooth and powerful bud.

Appearance and Fragrance

The headband has been described as pungent and earthy, but mostly lemony. It has a strong taste of lemon that is sure to fill the room and possibly seep outside. This simple taste makes it most palatable. The buds are dense nuggets of smooth green with sticky-icky trichomes of white, indicating the high THC content. You will want to grind this weed in a grinder to release hints of pine, lemon, and skunky funk. The smoke produced is abundant with medicinal chemicals but also smooth and calming.

How to Grow Headband Cannabis Seeds and Cuttings

Growing weed from Headband cannabis seeds and cuttings is of high difficulty. Headband is a plant of medium height that will grow from 30 to 80 inches tall. Headband thrives in a sun-lit and warm area, outdoors, and protected from excessive rainfall. Flower Power fertilizer is an excellent source to help these plants get the proper nutrition.

Indoors, Headband plants will flower in nine to ten weeks. The grower will get 18 ounces of high-quality Indica per meter squared.

Headband grows best outdoors in a warm sunny climate. Harvest will be around mid-October and growers can expect 21 ounces of quality Indica bud per plant.

Medicinal Marijuana Review

Headband weed has high THC content, ranging from 20% to 27%. The relaxation produced by this plant can bring relief to those with anxiety and depression.

The strong body high and warmth also makes it good for widespread chronic pain such as from muscle aches, fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The ‘headband’ effect is also said to relieve migraine and other types of headaches.

Headband weed is the ultimate high to make your body feel warm and comfortable. The effects come on slowly. It creeps on, over as long as 20 minutes. Then it envelopes you in a blanket of warmth, relaxation, pain relief, and of course, the famous headband of relaxed blood vessels near your temples, feeling as if they are being massaged.

Headband will go straight to your head and make you feel kind of heavy band foggy, so it is best for activities which do not require a lot of focus and concentration. Use this strain when you need quick relief and have plenty of time to chill, space out, and watch a movie, or take a nap.

The headband is a strain which gives a strong head high, a foggy mind, and may induce giggles and some forgetfulness. It is a great choice for a fun, lazy time with friends. While it may not be good for accuracy, it may spark creativity with the strong headband stimulating the mind and creativity. The headband goes great with music and art projects.

The headband has been described as a warm blanket around the body. This can be helpful when getting comfortable in intimate contexts. When you and a friend or lover are both experiencing a body euphoria, it becomes easier to communicate warm and fuzzy feelings. It makes it feel great to embrace and cuddle. There will be lots of smiles and tingling sensations. It can be great for making up. It also relaxes and soothes a tired and overworked body. Instead of using more harmful substances like alcohol, Headband can give you a nice, medicinal massage throughout the body, turning irritability into warmth and comfort.

The most amazing, unbelievable strain I've ever smoked. It became my favorite one for a number of reasons. After the very first exhale Headband (some people call it 707headband) already cheers you up, relaxes all your poor muscles after a hard-working day and after like five minutes a nice head-high comes to you with relaxation. Then after slowly being lifted up you have to wait another 20 minutes (but not take another bowl) to feel a completely unexpected and really heavy head high hitting you out of nowhere. It comes along with a qualitative, calming and soothing body high. They both continue building stronger and stronger (but not too much) for the next 40-60 minutes to reach its pick that lasts for about an hour too. Then it takes an hour more to come down slowly, with slightly noticeable changing of high frequency. Being on this strain I become extremely friendly, communicative and talkative. I love to crack jokes with my friends or siblings, have fun, hang out with them. Any activity at this time seems to be really enjoyable: from talking about life to playing fighting games or going for adventures. I sleep great afterwards. HIGHLY recommend this strain for using during social events and to get some energy. Such a lovely smoke must be known to every geek.


Very interesting and unbelievably versatile strain. It affects you two different ways depending on the amount of weed smoked. I got it from Montana Buds, the batch is around 22% THC and 0.1% CBD, you can recognize it by this unique and extremely prominent lemon scent, with a hint of diesel. Its truly outstanding flavor was even more lemony and the thick smoke adds a creamy aftertaste to it. Now we'll talk about two different highs you might get.

The first one, when smoking in lower doses (keep in mind, that when I say lower doses I mean 1-3 small hits/4-5 in a vape because this strain is really potent) is a great high for morning or early afternoon when you need to cope somehow with anxiety, depression and appetite loss. A standard pack of morning problems. Due to the small amount of it the high will be pleasant but not overpowering. Personally I enjoyed the slightly tingly cerebral sensation and could feel this nice calming body effect. As you can see, when you consume it in lower doses, you can still be productive and get things done.

Now about higher doses. This strain was aptly named for sure, cause it really does give you headband sensation, that feels like weird but nice pressure around your head, kinda like a massage. The indica side unleashes its potential and gives you much more intense melty body effect. My favorite thing to do while being that high is to get under a warm and cozy blanket and watch tv/play videogames until I melt into the couch or bed. At night time is perfect for insomnia, as well as anxiety and depression. Definitely an A+ strain!

It was so funny when I finally realized I mistook headband that I had just bought for lemon haze because of such strong citrusy lemon scent. Actually I've never tried lemon haze before but I was told that THIS was what I purchased. Anyway, when I started smoking, when I took the first hit, then the second, something was not ok. I remembered the reviews on lemon haze I read earlier and the effects described there were fully different from what I experienced at that moment. I read some reviews on headband as well and it actually makes sense that I got all suspicious. So, as long as we're clear now, I will proceed and tell about the effects. Man, it was the chilliest high I could ever experience in my life, I mean it. Try to remember how relaxed you are in your dreams (not all, of course but still) and you'll understand what this strain will do to you. I smoked it with a bunch of my friends on the hill and it really made my day. 5 bowls that I packed didn't give me overwhelming and extreme highs at all. So if you want to relax and ease your mind and body, this is just what you need!
