There’s no story behind the name. As it is, Blueberry Headband was taken from the names of the strains it was originally bred from. But that is not the story we want.

The real story is how Blueberry Headband can bring you to a buzzing cerebral high and then follow this up with a soothing body relaxation. The result is a strain that relieves you of stress and anxiety so that you could relax and feel happy about the world around you.

The original Blueberry Headband was a cross between Blueberry and F3 Emerald Headband. Later, as the breeders continued to improve the strain, Emerald Triangle Seeds and Humboldt Seed Corporation worked together to release the newer strain. Since then, Humboldt has continued to improve the quality of Blueberry Headband, and now on F6 status.

This strain is also potent in that it gives you a buzzing head high that uplifts your mood. As a result, you feel euphoric and happy. Besides being one of the better mood-enhancers in the world of cannabis, this strain also gives your creative side a spark or a boost, if you will.

In moderation, the head high does not cripple you from doing tasks, which means you can use this strain during the day. A good way to know is to try this strain first and use it for a few times and see how you tolerate it. The last thing you want is to smoke a little too much and that results in wave after wave of buzzing head high that may hinder your function.

From feeling good in a cloud of cerebral high, Blueberry Headband moves down to the body. It has a sedative-like quality that releases the tension from your body, which allows you to feel relaxed. It is the same quality that gives this strain beneficial medical uses, which is covered in another section.


Blueberry Headband has a very pleasant and pungent aroma that smells like sweet blueberry with an earthy undertone. It has a fragrance that most people find appealing.


Even better than smelling is to actually use the Blueberry Headband. This strain has the distinct fruity taste of berry or blueberry, and during exhalation, a slight scent of pine may be detected. The chances of your liking the aftertaste are higher than most other cannabis.

Adverse reactions

Blueberry Headband also has potent reactions that you want to know about. While it is common for cannabis to cause your mouth to feel dry, it also may lead to dry eyes. How do you minimize these reactions? Simple. Use a small quantity and making sure to smoke in moderation or within reasonable limits.

By using this strain conservatively, there is a less likelihood of dizziness, a common adverse reaction for potent strains that gives a head high.

Because of the strong buzzing sensation on the head, some novice users may feel a certain level of anxiety increase. It’s not a troubling issue so as long as you do not smoke too much.


Like other strains that bring you to heaven, this results in lowering the level of stress and anxiety. This is what makes cannabis valuable for those who need help in relieving the unhealthy symptoms. Blueberry Headband does not disappoint here.

More than being used to manage stress and anxiety disorders, the general body relaxation that hits the body helps in alleviating mild chronic pains and aches, including headaches and migraines.

In around two to three hours, once the effect of Blueberry starts to fade away, most people feel hungry. For that reason, this is a good strain to use if one is suffering from lack of appetite.

Used in moderation, Blueberry Headband can be used both during daytime and nighttime.


The feminized Blueberry Headband seeds from Humboldt Seed Corporation can be grown indoor and outdoor. Their work on improving this strain has resulted in faster and more aggressive growth, primarily due to changes in the roots. Because of that, the faster vertical growth means less flowering time. Harvest can be expected in as little as 8 weeks.

Flowering Time

Grown indoor, the Blueberry Headband should thrive well so as long as you take care of it and provide an environment that is similar to the Mediterranean climate. This strain is ready for harvest in 8 weeks and has a moderately high yield of up to 15 ounces per square meter. Perhaps one way to increase the yield is not to cramp up your space and provide higher wattage of lighting.

Grown outdoor, Blueberry Headband has an extremely high yield of anywhere from 35 to over 41 ounces per plant. If there is ever such a thing as a sight to behold, then it is seeing the results of your patience and nurturing during harvest by the end of September towards the early part of October.
