What is headband Strain
Strain Name: Headband Strain
Looks: The buds were a darker green which turned me off but after taking a closer look under a magnifying glass the trichromes were enough to sell me. The hairs were a nice dark orangish-brown which sort of made the bud look very foresty as a whole.
Smell: The smell was kind of disappointing, the only reason this bud didn’t get the straight A. I could definitely smell the two kushes in the mix but I guess I was hoping for some more of the sour to pervade the smell. Oh well.
Taste: The taste was fantastic. The smoke expands in the lungs as much as any other strain I’ve tried. Had my face as red as my Redwings shirt, very red, and tasting pine trees every time I coughed again.
Effects of Headband Strain
Effects: The effects were immediate. This was the first Headband that really lived up to it’s name. It felt like there was a four inch band of the best feeling lava the would drip down the front of your face numbing it for a bit before it would recede again back into the forehead.
Potency: Extreme, definitely one strain that I can not expect to go in public and operate at even speech and motor efficiency, but I always find if you’re nice to people they don’t care how lit you are.
Headband Grow Info:
Pot growing novices, rejoice- Headband cannabis is one of relative ease for cultivation, so long as you undergo the necessary requirements for maintenance and climate control. This marijuana is naturally resistant to most common molds, mildews and pests, so at least this element won’t so much be a cause for concern. Headband can be cultivated both in indoor and outdoor environments, but regardless of where the crops are grown, they must be kept away from frost and placed within direct access of large quantities of sunlight.
If the crops are grown outdoors in a wet or humid climate, they must be kept in a well sheltered area to prevent any diseases from overtaking an entire plot. Headband does provide a prolific yield for those who are patient and care for their crops. Indoor yields range on average at about 18 ounces per square meter, while outdoor harvests average 21 ounces per plant. Outside harvest falls around mid-October, while the flowering period for this marijuana strain is 9-11 weeks.
Because the plant is short and has a wider stretch, it is a suitable option especially for those living in colder climates who have no choice other than to grow indoors, because it won’t require a high ceiling space for successful growth. Any low-ceiling space will do, so long as there is adequate light and proper ventilation/air circulation to keep the crops breathing and the overwhelming stench maintained.
