Bred by Earthly Pleasures, Headmist is as sativa dominant strain spawned by combining the classic 1998 Kali Mist and Block Head. It produces a beautiful plant with vibrant purple hues, oozing with abundant trichomes. It can be grown indoors and outdoors.
The sativa dominant strain tastes sweet, skunky, herbal, citrus, and piney like Kali Mist, mixed in with earthy and spicy undertones from Block Head. This deliciousness delivers a happy and energetic high. After a few puffs, you will feel pressure around your temples, eyes, or flushing of cheeks, thus its name since it can get a bit misty. The high is euphoric and relaxing. It stimulates the appetite and kicks away any physical pains due to its indica content. It will help in increasing your productivity and awaken your creative juices.
The strain is great for people suffering from anxiety, depression, chronic stress, and fatigue. It is a very effective mood stabilizer, and definitely perfect for people diagnosed with bipolar disorder or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. A few puffs will help in managing the symptoms. The calming abilities can calm racing thoughts for people having trouble focusing or concentrating. In physical aspects, it can soothe the pain from headache, nausea, spasms, body pain, and inflammation. Strain is also good for insomnia and appetite loss.
If smoking is done in excess, it will present indica 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 will also cause sleeplessness, dry mouth, and dry eyes. It is best to draw the line and only smoke as long as you can take it, and have drinking water within reach.
Sativa leaning strains like Headmist is suitable for Screen of Green (SCROG) growing. If you are using artificial lights, you may use either LED or HPS lights. Low-Stress Training (LST) will increase possible yield and help in maintaining air circulation, and a precaution for molds.
