The Headband strain, in particular, has a long-withstanding relationship with the California medical marijuana scene. Despite the lack of true genetic similarities, a number of strains use the Headband namesake (707 Headband, Blue Headband, etc.).
“A number of [unrelated] strains use the Headband namesake.”
Being from the east coast, I was introduced to Sour Diesel early in life and it is one of my all-time favorite strains. With that said, I typically prefer to find Sour Diesel hybrids in which it has been crossed with more Indica genetics.
Similarly, this batch of Sour Headband had a strong diesel-like flavor, followed by a slight hint of lemon on the exhale. In fact, I may even go as far as to say this strain had one of the strongest Sour Diesel tastes I’ve come across in quite a while.
“The Sour Headband strain should be on every Sour Diesel lover’s bucket list.”
The best explanation for this is likely the slight head pressure for which the true Headband strain is known to generate – a feeling I have found to provide effective migraine relief in the past. It is because of this that I was excited to see how it would interact with the Sour Diesel genetics.
The Sour Dieseland Headbandstrains are two of the most popular cannabis varieties in the US, and the west coast in particular. Most medical marijuana patients and recreational cannabis connoisseurs alike would probably say that they have tried at least one of these two cannabis industry staples; those who haven’t are almost certainly aware of their existence.
Overall, I have to say that I was a fan of this Sour Headband batch; it should be on every Sour Diesel lover’s bucket list if you ask me. Consider trying this strain if you are looking for a Sativa-dominanthybrid that can deliver quick stress relief without inhibiting the ability to focus.
To date, the best example I’ve encountered would have to be Sour Grape, but I was immediately intrigued when presented with this batch of Sour Headband at VFL Collective in North Hollywood.
