Headwreck is a strain that comes to us by way of The Bank Genetics. It’s a Sativa-dominant (75/25) strain that grows tall, yields heavily, and tastes bold and pungent. You’d know this after one look at its lineage, which includes Trainwreck and Headband. This means you’ve got OG Kush, Chemdawg, Sour Diesel, and more powerhouses swimming around in there, enticing the strain to be even more impactful and delicious. The strain thrives in warm climates and your brain will thrive in warm thoughts if you can wrap your head around Headwreck.
The Headwreck strain flowers in around 60-65 days, growing high yields from tall stalks that get sizable both indoors and outdoors. We recommend sticking to outdoor cultivation since the strain is hardy in warm climates and easy to grow when it has its space. Indoors, you should expect a lower yield and a longer flowering period without a little help from some experienced pruning.
GROWING TIPS: You’re going to be dealing with a longer flowering period inside, as well as a slightly more temperamental plant overall. We recommend using well-aerated containers with your growing medium of choice to tackle this strain. We would not advise a hydroponics setup for this strain, unless you want that long flowering to last even longer.
The aroma of Headwreck may make you a wreck, as it brings out a fuel-like, ammonia-like stench of chemical earth that you can’t hide, get used to, or get out of your mind. If you want bold terpenes, you’ve got to accept bold flavors!
As for the strain’s effects, compared to Diesel Train, a strain that’s genetically similar in a lot of ways, Headwreck won’t make you feel as amped up and distracted. It has a milder, more cerebral effect on most users, which promotes relaxation and stress relief, keeping consumers focused and motivated. We recommend keeping your Headwreck time in the later afternoon when you have the chance to work on stuff and relax before eventually slipping into the strain’s iconically hazy feeling.
Earthy, chemmy, and surprisingly mild for most users, Headwreck, which sits at around 20% THC on average, is notable for an even, controllable high. At the end of a lot of work, it can be a serious alleviator for the wear and tear of the week. Used correctly, it can even help you focus in the middle of it somewhere, especially if you have a remote job that lets you cool off and take things at your own pace, with a wrecked head for good measure.
