About Humboldt Headband
Humboldt Headband could be called the headliner of the Humboldt Seed Company, a breeder whose influence starts in Northern California, extends across the United States, and reaches as far as Spain. The strain that bears its name is Indica-dominant (75/25), beautiful to see, and clothed in accents of spicy fuel and flavors of citrus and grape. It’s a powerful strain, with THC in the low 20s, yet accessible for most users who like a cerebral high and a diverse batch of terpenes. Continue reading to learn what went into Humboldt Headband and what you can expect to get out of it.
This strain is a hybrid between two classics, the heavy-hitter known as Headband, which has OG Kush and Sour Diesel genetics, and Purple Panty Dropper. With that lineage, the result in Humboldt Headband is a classic cerebral high that lifts your brain and spaces you out. Prepare for a slow-onset stoning, a wave of heavy happy feelings that reveal themselves in warm rushes that spread throughout your body after making short work of your brain. Humboldt Headband is great for encouraging that classic stoned feeling and should not be paired with working, driving, or the mornings of a busy day. This is a strain for getting couch-locked in a do-nothing evening, alone in a room with your thoughts and your Headband.
Humboldt Headband hits hard, so we recommend it for people who have trouble sleeping, who feel depressed at the end of a long week, or who suffer from chronic pain conditions, especially those that involve muscle spasms. Remember that a strain like this is not a treatment for specific conditions. But the good feelings produced by this stony high might take the edge off a long week and help you get to sleep.
The flavor should make you smile too as the strain has a unique blend of tastes that range from sweet grape with citrus accents to a dank undertone of diesel fuel and peppery spice. These flavors hide in light green buds, which are long, tapered, and underscored by deep purple colors. The pistils are a bright amber color and stick out in random places. Humboldt Headband hits hard and makes you sleepy, but goes easy on you with tempting flavors that give the same sweet impression as the bud’s appearance. If you want to know why the breeder is so proud of themselves, just try the strain that they lent their name.
