Headband has several origins, but it's most known for its cerebral effect that users compare to the feeling of wearing a headband. In addition to the heady high, users have reported feeling spacey, relaxed and euphoric.

Headband by DNA Genetics

Amsterdam’s DNA Genetics used an OG Kush male to pollinate a Sour Diesel female and create Headband, a short and bushy plant during the vegetative phase that makes the most of the available space during the flowering cycle. The strain creates small buds and benefits from aggressive training as a means of improving the plant’s yield.

Headband of Unknown Origin

Another origin of Headband is reportedly an indica-dominant cross between Sour Diesel and a Sensi Seeds Northern Lights cross. Once referred to as Daywrecker Diesel or Underdawg, this genetic combination joined together many commendable traits from its parents’ lineage. Headband was reportedly named Diesel #1 when an East Coast breeder known as Weasel first cultivated the strain in the mid-1990s.

Grow information

When cultivated indoors using the SCROG (screen of green) technique, growers will improve their overall yield and flower quality. Indoors, Headband flowers within 9-10 weeks.

When grown outdoors, it’s best cultivated in areas with a warmer fall climate as the flowering time takes longer to mature than some strains. Feminized Headband seeds are available through Reserva Privada.
