Headband BX is a delicious creation by Immortal Flower. It is the result of backcrossing a Headband clone to Headband x Deep Bubba Kush. While the combined ratio was 50/50 sativa and indica genetics, it spawned a pure indica strain. It adapts well, whether grown indoors or outdoors.
The strong effects of Headband BX strain are delivered through its delicious and classic diesel aroma and flavor. Like other headband strains, you will feel like you are wearing a headband. After a few puffs, you will feel pressure around your temples, eyes, or flushing of cheeks. The high is euphoric and relaxing. It stimulates the appetite and kicks away any physical pains, thanks to its unadulterated indica content. It can also give you the yawns, making it a great strain for night time use.
Pure indica genes mean higher CBD, which equals higher medicinal benefits. Headband BX provides increased mental relaxation, along with muscle massages. The strain relieves arthritis, headache, neck pain, and back pain. It also helps in soothing nausea and can decrease acute pain. Appetite is also stimulated, so patients with anorexia can count on it for the munchies. Dopamine is also increased, so though it is relaxing, the user is more productive and creative. The mood is also calmed for anxiety and depression patients.
The strain is usually smoked for relaxing due to its pure indica properties; however, if smoking is done in excess, it will present sativa effects instead. This is bad, especially for patients with anxiety, chronic stress, and fatigue, as it will just elevate the things they want to keep in control, like mood and racing thoughts. It is best to draw the line and only smoke as long as you can take it, and have drinking water within reach.
The weed is best grown through the Sea of Green (SOG), so its pure indica genetics can be nourished. It can stretch up to 3x, so topping and pruning will help in promoting air ventilation. Like its parents, its diesel aroma catches attention, so it is best to install anti-odor carbon filters.
