Headband strain review with photos

Category: Nugs | Posted on Wed, March, 13th 2013 by THCFinder

  

Headband - Hybrid

Headband is a combination of OG Kush, Master Kush, and Sour Diesel that provides a smooth and pleasant tasting smoke. Good for pain relief, relaxing, and relieving stress.

Strain Name: Headband
 
Grade: A
 
Type: Hybrid (Sativa Dominant)
 
Looks: Large sticky light green nugs with a very heavy covering of trichomes with dark forest green spotting.
 
Smell: A woodsy pine scent and chlorophyll. Vicks VapoRub.
 
Taste: Very much like sweet/sour lemony powdery candy; produces a sweet lemony after taste that progresses to some serious "fuel" tasting dry mouth. 
 
Buzz Type: It felt like someone was literally pushing down the top of my head while at the same time; pushing in my forehead. I felt slight tingle in the appendages. Deep smoke intakes will produce a quick a rush that will mellows out to a very balanced mellowing buzz. For a Sativa dominant version of Headband, it attacked pain very well but, can be a bit "head heavy" and play "up" your current mood and/or state of mind.
 
Buzz Length: Above Average to Long (1.5 to 2 hours) 
 
Summary:
 
* It's been well over a year that I have medicated with any kind of "version" of Headband. Now, I remember why this is typically a strain I am not reaching for...
 
I enjoyed taking big sniffs of this bud. I do like very similar smell of Vicks VapoRub (not sure if that is good or bad) and sniffs would clear my allergy laden nostrils. This batch of Headband does leave a strong lingering "medicine-like" odor. A few friends came by my home and said my office smelled like "Chinese medicine." 
 
When the medicinal effect was calming, this is when I enjoyed this Headband most. I tend to get a bit over excited; especially when talking "weed." I noticed this strain calmed me down quite a bit allowing me to focus and get a lot of work done. But, I had to be by myself. I did not have the same medicinal effect when others were around. 
 
A few times, I inhaled some larger than "normal" smoke which produced a serious head rush causing me to sweat with eyes immediately getting very low.
 
During some sessions, I felt this strain "pounded my head" a bit a too hard (the feeling as if I drank to many shots of Jägermeister or Goldschläger back in my day - just typing that almost made me sick). It's this unpredictable nature of this strain that causes me not to grab it. It did play up on my moods a few times. So, instead of being a little upset at something, I'd be ticked off. If in a happy/joyful mood, I might be singing a tune (which is something I normally do not do). 
 
Other sessions, I would just be flat out lazy; not wanting to do anything, but rest and sleep. I even noticed an increase in appetite, but eating is a not a condition where I need assistance. I found myself eating at times when I really knew I was not hungry. This is a little hard to explain, but the increase in appetite I felt was NOT like having the case of the "munchies." 
 
Also, many times I was hit with itchy RED eyes when coming down which could be a more of an issue specific to me given my dry eye condition. This strain exacerbated it and luckily, I always keep eye drops around.
 
Despite the negatives that personally affected me with this batch of Headband, I can still respect this is a solid strain for those who like Headband strains. As for sessions with this refill, my positive vs. negative experience was about 50/50. This strain actually "shined" more for me with the Vape. Use of the Vape deterred most of the negative side effects I had with use of glass bong. 
 
Vape Notes:
 
Use of my Vape actually surprised me in a very good way. I was actually tasting a bit of unripe banana (green banana) with "thicker" vape draws, but mostly a sour lemony taste that is more noticeable as an after taste. I did cough a few times while vaping this strain. With the "lighter" buzz effect, I was definitely much more "in control" of this strain vs. use of my glass bong. I did not experience the "headiness" while using the Vape and actually had BETTER focus. One of the few times where "overall," I like the effect of a strain with the Vape vs. the Bong. If I was working around co-workers (or in an office), This batch of Headband would be a great strain to sneak in Vape sessions if I kept a portable Vape in the car with some pre-ground nugs.
 
This batch of Headband was definitely a winner in the Vape!

Northern Lights - Indica

Northern Lights is renowned for its ability to be grown very easily. The strain's reputation also comes from the fact that it has won competitions such as the Cannabis Cup. The #5 strain was first entered into competition 1989 when several seeds were mailed from the U.S.A. to Amsterdam. The strain quickly dominated the Cannabis Cup, winning in 1989, 1998, and again in 2009. It is a cross of Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa.

Super Lemon Haze strain review

Category: Nugs | Posted on Tue, March, 12th 2013 by THCFinder

 

Super Lemon Haze - Hybrid

The Super Lemon Haze is a superstar. This strain swept first prize in Amsterdams Cannabis Cup for two consecutive years (2008 and 2009), also taking second in the Sativa Cup in 2009. The popularity of this strain stands on the shoulders of its predecessors. The father, Super Silver Haze, was already famous, taking high accolades and multiple prizes throughout the late 1990s. However, not all children of the famous go on to earn fame in their own right. It takes the right combination, and in this case, that combination involves a Lemon Skunk mother, a selection from a Citral x Skunk cross.

Strain Name: Super Lemon Haze
 
From: Green Closet Delivery
 
Grade: B+/A-
 
Type: Sativa
 
Looks: Very fluffy and loose nugs with lots of "orange/red string."
 
Smell: Like someone tried to covered up their smelly funk with lemon scented deodorant. Very funky and lemony.
 
Taste: Definitely no funk on the taste, but all lemon. A nice "clean" lemon taste. Very tasty, but can end with some dry mouth.
 
Buzz Type: Very cerebral. Provided me with a clear head with rest of body in soothing tingle. There were some periods with stronger headiness with a few sporadic "tingle surges."
 
Buzz Length: Average to Above Average (1 hour to 1.5 hours)
 
Summary:
 
* Super Lemon Haze is a seed grown Sativa strain by Green Closet. Although not the best looking buds (which makes them "mids"), the buzz factor and taste were on par of being top shelf. When considering the primary factors of "Looks, Smell, and Taste" the grower hit 2/3 marks. Also, at $40 for 4 grams (normal donation is $45/e), this is very good seed grown bud at a compassionate price. 
 
This strain was super tasty! A fresh mound of a scissored up Super Lemon Haze smelled quite good and very lemony, like Pledge - not as funky as compared when the nug was "whole."
 
Smoke on the exhale lingered and had a very similar funky, lemony profile as if I put the nug up to my nose. I definitely had to be careful for those rare moments when I took a bong hit in my kitchen (such as when filming the video for this) because the smell would linger quite long which was putting me at risk of being in "trouble" with my family.
 
A SOLID mid-shelf grow at a great price and I just respect that fact that where clones are the trend due to their ease, Green Closet is really taking the time to master their growing skills with a focus on seeds. If price is an issue, this grow of Super Lemon Haze will provide the most buzz for the buck.
 
Vape Notes:
 
Super Lemon Haze is choice strain for the Vape. You can smell the lemon tree BEFORE sealing the top as you fill it with your "grindings." Taste is like a sweet glass of lemonade. Taste great, but "buzz" was less "filling" when using the Vape.
 
Grower Notes:
 
- SUPER LEMON HAZE - 2010 CANNABIS CUP WINNER
- GROWN FROM SEED
- THIS STRAIN COMES STRAIGHT FROM GREENHOUSE SEEDS IN AMSTERDAM, SEED BROKE GROUND ON JAN. 16, 2011.
