Purple Headband is an Indica dominant hybrid strain that is a cross between Master Kush, Sour Diesel, OG Kush and an unknown purple strain - which growers agree was likely either Purple Urkle or Mendo Purps.
This strain tastes of pines and leaves a pleasant aftertaste.
The buds are medium to large and are covered with orange hairs and purple leaves. The nugs are dense and the aroma is floral and fruity with a hint of Kush.
Levels of active ingredient Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in Purple Headband are generally around 21 percent but have tested as high as 28 percent.
Purple headband users may feel euphoric and energetic at the same time. One may even experience enhanced sensory perception and an improvement in mood - rendering it a popular medication for ADD, ADHD, PTSD, bipolar depression and other mood-related disorders.
Other effects frequently noted when using this strain are giggly, hungry, relaxed, and/or sleepy. Due to these effects, Purple Headband may come in handy for treating conditions like anxiety, loss of appetite, hyperactivity and irritability. However, the most significant symptom Purple headband relieves is headaches and migraines.
Purple Headband should be grown indoors for best results but can be grown outdoors as well. When grown indoors expect flowering between week 7 and 9. Expect buds to get very large, very quickly around the 6.5 to 7 week mark. When grown outdoors harvest comes in mid-September. Yields are generally above average for both indoor and outdoor grows.
