Flavor: It heavily depends on the cut you get, but Blueberry Headband should be a tart combination of Blueberry’s sweet and savory berry flavors with a slightly gassy, citrus twinge at the end, almost like a pastry. Berry flavors should influence the palate, but I’ve had some that are more of an even split.

I used to assume the same thing, so don’t feel bad. And after a little research into the history of the strain, you won’t feel so misled. Blueberry Headband was originally bred from four strains — Blueberry, Emerald OG Kush, Sour Diesel and Pre-’98 Bubba Kush — two of which (Sour Diesel and Emerald OG Kush) carry genetics heavily found in Headband. So while it took more of an orgy than an intimate one-on-one to create Blueberry Headband, the result still carries many of the same characteristics that made the original Headband so popular.
Smell: The strain’s smell is a win-win for Blueberry and Headband lovers, combining the former’s syrupy, sweet smells of blueberry pie with the latter’s pungent scents of zesty citrus and diesel fuel.
Looks: More sativa-looking than indica, Blueberry Headband comes in the form of large, fluffy buds reminiscent of Headband, with a glowing bright-green color, vibrant orange pistils and moderate but milky trichome coverage.
If I asked you to name the genetics of Blueberry Headband, you’d probably respond with something like, “Yes, dipshit, I know what two plus two is. Blueberry Headband is an obvious hybrid of Blueberry and Headband.” But in the immortal words of the late Charlie Murphy: Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
Effects: Similar to Church or Flo, Blueberry Headband provides an incredibly balanced indica-sativa high that relaxes the body and uplifts the mind. I prefer it mid-day or early evening thanks to its ability to melt stress and muscle tension, but I know many smokers who enjoy it before bed for the same reasons. It can also help with creative tasks like art, writing and music if you can handle the indica comedown.
