Headband aka Sour Kush
Indica Dominant Hybrid –60% Indica / 40% Sativa
THC: 15% – 25%, CBN: 1%
With a sativa/indica ratio of 40:60, Sour Kush is a hybrid in the truest sense of the word, delivering a combination of heady sativa effects and physical indica effects. The experience is happy, giggly, and euphoric yet lazy and relaxed. Creativity is also common while high on this strain. Sour Kush is reportedly very potent, but it’s hard to come by any credible data to back that claim. Still, users describe a strong mental and physical high good for treating depression, pain, insomnia, stress, and lack of appetite. Sour Kush is especially good at treating chronic pain. But available information suggests CBD content is very low, too low to recommend this strain as a source of treatment for seizures or other problems that can be relieved with CBD preparations. The bud is lime green with brown hairs, while the flavor is pungent and citrusy and the aroma has pungent notes of lemon and lime. Reported side effects include dry mouth, red eyes, dizziness, and paranoia. Sour Kush is popular up and down the West Coast and in Colorado and Arizona.

Providing consumers with an uplifting experience without overwhelming sedative effects, this hybrid is great for day-to-day consumption.
