Bred by New420Guy, Headbanger Auto is a mix of Headbanger and Magnum Auto. It emits a delicious aroma of earthy, diesel, skunky, herbal, and sweet orange. It won the 3rd place in the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2013 under the Sativa category. With its autoflowering properties, it can be grown indoors or outdoors.
The ruderalis strain presents a mouth-watering mix of woody, skunky, diesel, and sweet citrus plus berry flavors. Leaning more on its sativa genetics, it delivers an energizing euphoric buzz. This buzz increases the user’s motivation and focus. However, unlike its autoflowering properties, the effects do not kick in right away. It will take a few minutes, but once it does, the user’s spirit will definitely become uplifted. Creativity is also unleashed, making task completion faster and easier. These effects make Headbanger Auto a perfect morning strain.
Most smokers use Headbanger Auto for its recreational effects, but it does not place last in terms of medicinal benefits. The buzz of euphoria is helpful for easing anxiety. It can also help in uplifting people suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, and PTSD. Since the focus is increased, it can help people with attention deficit disorder. The strain can also be used to a certain degree to relieve any physical pain and help with poor appetite.
Just like in a concert, you may do the headbang with the medicinal and recreational effects, expressing satisfaction to what you are experiencing. However, the strain can also bang your mind and body with negative effects, such as dry mouth, dry eyes, and arid throat. Larger intakes are likely due to its deliciousness, so it can also lead to dizziness, anxiety, and paranoia.
If you are a novice grower, this strain is not suitable for you, but it definitely suits the Sea of Green (SOG) growing method. As early as possible, trim and prune the plant to control its height, and increase air ventilation. It also loves a lot of sunshine.
