Strain Name: Headband
Looks: The buds were a darker green which turned me off but after taking a closer look under a magnifying glass the trichromes were enough to sell me. The hairs were a nice dark orangish-brown which sort of made the bud look very foresty as a whole.
Smell: The smell was kind of disappointing, the only reason this bud didn’t get the straight A. I could definitely smell the two kushes in the mix but I guess I was hoping for some more of the sour to pervade the smell. Oh well.
Taste: The taste was fantastic. The smoke expands in the lungs as much as any other strain I’ve tried. Had my face as red as my Redwings shirt, very red, and tasting pine trees every time I coughed again.
Effects: The effects were immediate. This was the first Headband that really lived up to it’s name. It felt like there was a four inch band of the best feeling lava the would drip down the front of your face numbing it for a bit before it would recede again back into the forehead.
Potency: Extreme, definitely one strain that I can not expect to go in public and operate at even 50% speech and motor efficiency, but I always find if you’re nice to people they don’t care how lit you are.
Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 55% Sativa / 45% Indica THC: 24%, CBD: 5%, CBN: 1%
LSD the hallucinogen is known to induce anxiety-riddled bad trips. Thankfully, LSD the marijuana strain delivers a psychedelic effect without the negative edge. It’s a near-even balance of sativa and indica (55:45 sativa/indica ratio). What sets this strain apart is its astronomically high THC levels, which top out at 24%. There are also high levels of CBD in this strain; CBD is used to treat seizures and other conditions. As its name suggests, LSD spurs a happy, strongly psychedelic experience focused on the head. At the same time, the indica genes provide a calming effect ideal for chronic body aches. LSD leaves quite an impression. Inexperienced users often get stuck in a mental rut, while other users find the strain promotes creativity and social interaction. It has a pungent earthy flavor and smell, with an underlying sweet taste. The high is strongly euphoric and upbeat, ideal for daytime activities as long as the high doesn’t overpower. LSD is great at relieving anxiety and depression, as well as PTSD, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and GI distress.
Platinum Girl Scout Cookies
Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica THC: 18% – 26%, CBD: 1%
Girl Scout cookies, yes, a cannabis strain (not the actual cookies), is one of the most popular hybrid strains in existence. The strain is the result of a cross between the OG Kush (also one of the most popular strains in existence) the Durban poison hybrid. The strain does lean more towards sativa and given its high THC levels (near 25%); it is now wonder why this strain provides such a strong and euphoria-induced high. This strain has a CBD level between 0.09-0.2percent Due to its potency, it is used predominantly for stress relief in patients. Other medicinal uses include treatment for most types of anxieties, pain alleviation, depression and sometimes insomnia. Dry mouth and dry eyes are two of the side effects of this strain. There are two types of Girl scout cookies. One is the platinum girl scout cookies and the other is thin mint Girl Scout cookies. Though there are some variations in appearance and effects, they are mostly the same. The appearance of this strain is unique. It has a fresh look to it, with dark green leaves and brilliant orange hairs.
Hybrid – 65% Indica / 35% Sativa THC: 11% – 20%
Mangos and marijuana go together. The fruit is known to enhance the high for many people, and some cannabis strains are bred to evoke the fruit. The taste of Mango Kush, not surprisingly, is similar to mangos and Kush, with notes of pine. It smells of the tropics, sweet mangos, and bananas. THC can make up as much as 16% of this strain, while CBD is much lower, about 0.3%. That makes this a poor choice for treating conditions that respond to CBD, such as severe seizure disorders. Mango Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid (35:65 sativa/indica ratio) that can be used to treat nausea and vomiting, pain, insomnia, lack of appetite, and depression. The high is centered on the body, with deep relaxation, strong euphoria, and a general sedated feeling. Many patients find themselves talking and giggling more than usual while high on this strain. Dry mouth is a common concern, as are bloodshot eyes, but most other adverse effects are limited.
