A strain that goes with the flow and that is what Headbanger is and what it does. Confused? Think of it like this. This Sativa dominant hybrid delivers Sativa effects that make one stay motivated and focused.
But depending on how one wants to feel, it can also lead to a mind-numbing buzzing cerebral high.
|Sativa/Indica %||Indoor Yield||Outdoor Yield||Flowering Period|
|70% / 30%||18 to 21 ounces per square meter||21 ounces or more per plant||10 – 12 weeks indoors, late September to early October outdoors.|
To understand the Headbanger strain, it is best to look at where it came from first. One of the most prominent lines in cannabis includes Sour Diesel.
It is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that is famous for its fuel-like aroma as well as the incredibly powerful mental high it delivers.
A respected breeder, Karma Genetics, used Sour Diesel to cross it with one of their best strains, Biker Kush v2.0. Admittedly, it is strange to see the name of a hybrid with a version number.
Be that as it may, they explained it as the strain being the second backcross of HA-OG and a phenotype of OG Kush.

In crossbreeding Sour Diesel and Biker Kush v2.0, the result is a strain that delivers a powerful cerebral high. As a testament to the quality of the new hybrid, Headbanger won the 2013 Amsterdam Cannabis Cup.
It also went on to place high in other competitions such as third best Sativa in the 2013 High Times Cannabis Cup.
Looking at how the strain has performed, it is entirely reasonable that users who get ahold of it for the first time will have high expectations. One thing that is sure is that it will not disappoint especially in sending people sky high.

One of the reasons for the building excitement before using Headbanger is potency. Insane is the word that comes to mind after seeing it tested to have 25% to 28% THC.
Already, the thought of people banging their head starts to form. Of course, that is not exactly how it works.
Surprisingly, this strain is a creeper. Instead of rushing in like a runaway freight train, it takes several minutes before it kicks in. But once it does, it does so by sending an energetic buzz that uplifts the spirit.
Soon enough, users not only feel happy but most go on to feel euphoric.
It also brings along other notable Sativa traits such as inducing creativity and heightened focus. Considering how pumped up one feels, the motivation to work or complete tasks becomes easy. For that reason, one can say the Headbanger is ideal for daytime use.
Although it is a Sativa-dominant strain, its smaller Indica side is not to without its use. In fact, about the only thing that keeps the cerebral effects in check is the physical relaxation that one feels.
When it comes to its aroma, Headbanger brings the best of both its lineage and combine them into one. On the one hand, there is the smell of fuel blending in with its refreshing, earthy odor.
On the other hand, there is also the sweet citrusy scent of orange. Put the two together, and the fragrance now is reminiscent of Pinesol with orange scent.
The same smell of Pinesol is evident in its flavors. But to make it more exotic and delightful is a note of berry. Most people would find it pleasant and smooth on the throat.

Because it is cannabis, then it means that it comes with the usual side effects such as dry mouth and eyes. Not that they are a problem, but the users often ignore them. After all, Headbanger has already sent the users to a euphoric high.
Still, because of its sick THC content, it is also likely for people to reach their limits and experience other adverse reactions. For instance, some may feel dizzy. Also, it is possible for a few people to feel paranoid or anxious.
While most people who use Headbangers are in it for recreational reasons, these same effects also have benefits for medical cannabis users.
Of note is how the euphoric buzz helps in wiping out stress. Because the strain can uplift the spirit, then it helps people with depression manage their emotion and thoughts better.

To a certain degree, the strain can also be used for pain relief. However, this is mostly psychological as it does not have enough Indica traits to induce sedative-like effects.
People who have poor appetite may also find this strain useful. During the comedown, one thing it does is to cause people to feel starving. As a result, a trip to the kitchen can be irresistible.
Cultivating Headbanger is fun and rewarding. But not everyone can do it successfully. For beginners, other strains are more suitable. With that said, it thrives well indoor or outdoor under the care of growers with experience.
Trimming and pruning are recommended early on to keep the plant from growing too tall especially when using a habitat.
