The Headband strain is a notoriously potent hitter that has an incredibly smooth smoke. A harmonious marriage of OG Kush and Sour Diesel, Headband hits quickly. Acting as a coat of highness, this strain might wrap around you and get your brain buzzing, but your body like butter. Those experiencing a high level of stress might find this strain to be a welcoming addition to the more difficult parts of the day. The strain itself is very versatile and reeks of spicy lemony gas.
Looking at a prime cut of the Headband strain, you’ll notice a palpably dense layer of trichomes. The pleasant green coloration of the nugs may take on earthier hues depending on the pheno. Immediately upon opening the bag, it’s apparent that this strain is loud. Its OG lineage makes for an overarching diesel stank, while the Sour Diesel lends to more of its lemony herbaceousness. Cracking a nug open, another gassy blast will erupt along with some potentially more floral and citrus notes.
The dominant terpenes in the Headband strain are limonene, beta-caryophyllene, and myrcene. This combo further elaborates on the apparent aromas you pick up largely on the nose. It’s not surprising this strain might have the most euphorically mind-melting high you’ve had in a while. It literally feels like you have a headband wrapped around your head, with the high potentially putting pressure on your dome.

Limonene is a classic terpene for uplifting and anxiety-relieving qualities and has that delectable lemony citrus aroma. Beta-caryophyllene is a potential powerhouse of anti-inflammatory effects and brings in a musky gas that might make the smoke spicy. Myrcene is one of the most common terpenes you’ll see that has calming qualities that also add to the floral sweetness hidden in the aromatics.
Smoking on some of the Headband strain might get you out of whatever funk you’re in. The distracting high that may quickly take over could take you straight into outer space. When you’re taking a few puffs, you will taste more of the sour and bitter flavors that might resolve into a pleasant citrus zest. Those seeking relief from depression, anxiety, or chronic body pain might find this strain to be a royal treat.
