Headband Marijuana Strain


DNA Genetics

Indica 70 / Sativa 30
Origins: Sour Diesel x OG Kush
Flowering: 63-70 days

Imagine, if you will, throwing caution and all fashion sense to the wind, and donning a headband a la John McEnroe in the early ’80s or Luke Wilson in the Royal Tennenbaums – or for the ladies, Olivia Newton-John aerobics video style. The Headband is like a reassuring little brain hug, and its presence may bring a heightened awareness of the gray matter. Imagine a weed strain that, when smoked, mimics that feeling, moving rapidly from the front of the mind to the back, easing anxiety while inducing awareness. Now you have the idea.

The Headband is a brilliant case of reverse engineering by DNA Genetics. A choice, unidentified strain nicknamed the 707 Headband was making the circuit and gaining attention for its combination of potency and dank flavor. DNA breeders made some educated guesses about the parents of the 707 Headband, and then worked on recreating a strain from scratch that mimicked the 707’s superb qualities.

This Headband’s Sour Diesel / OG Kush combination brings together many admirable qualities from its already notorious parent strains. This is an agreeable squatty, bushy plant that makes the most of the available space. In the vegetative phase, it grows fast and spreads wide when allowed to go au naturale, producing many tops and an even canopy with minimal coaxing. At maturity, the size roughly doubles. This plant does not grow as tall as Sour Diesel or as stretchy as the OG Kush, ans is less picky about the nutrients. Straight out of the gate, Headband is very pungent and colorful, taking a pinkish turn around the 4th week and gaining a wow factor with photo-worthy tones of blue, purple, and deep dark red in the last two weeks of ripening.

When finished, the Headband has great bag and head appeal. Its uniquely enjoyable fuel-sour taste makes it memorable. Soil does the best job in bringing out the flavor, but this plant produces good yields of high-grade medicine in coco, hydro, or other soilless methods so long as the plants are flushed with pH-balanced water for two weeks prior to harvest. The high is not too overpowering, and lasts a long time, making it good utility daytime smoke. Headband is good for reducing anxiety. The beginner or hobby medical grower will find that this plant cooperates in the garden and delivers high quality yields.

    What Steve said!
    I’m a medical user for PTSD & chronic pain brought on by Rheumatoid Arthritis. Works equally well on both. A rare feat for any strain to match, or better.
    Flavour was quite pleasant and the waiting time for it to start working was very short.
    I’ve been through the med mill and can honestly say it works better than any of the opoids or ‘Fauxpoids’ that had been prescribed. Reduces inflammation noticeably.
    My only quibble with it is that it causes involuntary jaw-clenching. While I admit, everybody’s reaction differs, I still think that’s why some think it’s “Actually like wearing a headband”.

    I was looking for an “Old School” type of high I enjoyed as a teen in the early 70’s. I’ve smoked ‘Deisel’ (mostly sativa) like Lemon Deisel or Purple Erkle, but the taste was nasty – I blunted it with pipe tobacco.
    But This – Very relaxing and at the same time cerebral. VERY nice taste and smell; sweet chlorophyll, like plucking a blade of grass, and nibbling on the end.
    21% THC, 70/Indica, 30/Sativa Hybrid.
    Recommend for experienced smokers – Otherwise, a little dab ‘L Do Ya
    WARNING: this stuff will kill a few brain cells, but only the weak ones, and they deserve to die… =0)
