Headband Medical Strain
A cross between staple strains OG Kush, Master Kush, and Sour Diesel. All of these indica heavy hitters endow Headband with a high THC content. Has THC measured at between 20% and an impressive 27%. Some sources claim that it was developed by Colorado-based breeders Reserva Privada. They are also responsible for tasty strains like Kandy Kush and Strawberry Banana. Still others attest to an origin in 707 Headband.
Buds of this strain are small and are more like nuggets than dense, spade-like cones. The leaves are an even, pale green, although some plant phenotypes have a higher propensity for shades of purple (the result of cold temperatures activating anthocyanin compounds during the vegetative period).
Medically speaking, Headband’s powerful sedative properties serve as a remedy for mild anxiety and, in large enough doses, for chronic insomnia. Fans of the strain have also reported improvement in symptoms associated with migraines and muscle spasms. Headband has been known to provoke appetite, making it a supplementary treatment for users suffering from decreased hunger due to disease or chemotherapy. Negative side effects include a feeling of dizziness, dry mouth. And thanks to the same expansion of blood vessels that causes this strain’s trademark facial pressure red eyes. The high from Headband last longer than average, even in users with a relatively high tolerance for THC.
