Completely ridiculous trich coverage is the main thing we noticed about this sample… it’s simply loaded with trichs that seem to bend over under their own weight. Its pale green calyxes and pistils look almost white from a distance due to the thick layer of trichomes, but a few deep red pistils poke through to break up the monotony. They were mostly clear or cloudy, but there were about 10% ambers under the microscope. Since it was very dry, it flung trichomes everywhere when handled, and we nearly cried as we broke it up for the reviews. It was of average density and was just a spectacular sample aside from one small flaw; a single tiny immature seed that was found in the sample nug. It’s small beans, as they say…
Fresh and piney with a bit of fuel is how we’d describe this one pre-grind. When broken, it released a lot more of the fuel scent and increased in pungency markedly (it was only average in the bag/jar).
One of the high points of this strain, the taste was complex and highly enjoyable. It was a pungent blend of citrusy fuel/chemical with a eucalyptus bite and an aromatic Kush aftertaste that hung in the mouth for quite a while. It did make us cough a good amount, mostly due to the generous expansion and a marked but acceptable harshness on the throat. It didn’t seem to burn very clean however, as it left a murky-looking black ash behind, even in an IncrediBowl with a pipe screen.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Energy, anti-depression, relaxation (eventually), mild body pain relief.
One of the most visually-striking samples we’ve received, this Headband continues the tradition of A Cut Above’s strains that are loaded with insane amounts of trichomes. Those trichs apparently contributed quite the potency punch to this sample, as it knocked our review staff for a bit of a loop with its trippy effects full of hallucinations and a head-spinning initial attack. Once it calmed down a bit though it provided great mood elevation, relaxation, and mild pain relief. We’d warn beginners against this strain, as even a small 0.1g dosage was more than enough to put an experienced patient in another mental dimension for a solid 2.5 hours. If you want a bit of a rollercoaster ride and enjoy the taste of a Sour Diesel or Kush, you owe yourself to try this superb example of Headband, as it was by consensus the best example of it that we’ve ever tried.
