Strawberry Headband (aka Strawberry Head Band) is a marijuana hybrid strain with slightly dominant Indica genetics (40% Sativa / 60% Indica). The weed has got its name due to its potent head-wrapping effect. In some smokers, it is associated with images of hippies in decorative headgear.

The THC content is pretty high and amounts to 23.5%, with some samples reaching even 25.5%. The concentration of CBD is low and makes up only 0.19-0.4%; however, the plant is rich in other cannabinoids that are synthesized and stored in the glandular trichomes:

  • CBC 0.22-0.24%
  • CBG 0.06-0.17%
  • CBN 0.1-0.32%
  • THCV 0.08-0.2%

The strain is suitable for experienced consumers because of its strong high and pressure built up around the temples.

Dominant Aromas and Terpenes

The Strawberry Headband strain features an aroma that every user would expect. You will notice the smell of fresh sweet strawberries with slight pungent hints. When the bud is broken, it’ll strike you with a more complex odor that reminds you of herbs, berries, and apricots. Also, you can expect a deep smell of diesel with earthy undertones. This rich aroma profile is caused by the carene, caryophyllene, and myrcene terpenes.

Main Effects and Uses

The effects produced by Strawberry Headband are as addictive as its flavors. They start with an energetic and uplifting high that brings pleasant tingles over the body and induces giggles in smokers. On the comedown, this cannabis brings a relaxed (almost sleepy) effect that leaves you cerebrally stoned and drowsy. Some users can feel an appetite stimulation.

From a medical standpoint, the Strawberry Headband strain is known for its powerful anesthetizing effects and serves as a remedy to cope with arthritis, muscle spasms, and migraines. Its sedative properties help people suffering from insomnia.

Adverse effects that this kush can trigger include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Panic attacks
  • Concern
  • Heightened sensory perception
  • Dry eyes
  • Thirst and dry mouth

How to Grow Strawberry Headband

Due to an almost equal split between Sativa and Indica genes, the strain doesn’t grow either too short or too tall. Its average height is 30-60 inches. Plants can thrive inside and outside, though these cultivation methods provide different yields. The indoor harvest is 1-2 oz./ft2, while outside herbs give 10-15 oz./plant. The strain starts flowering 53-63 days after germination and gives yields in 58 days. The cultivation difficulty is moderate.
