The Headshot is a mostly indica strain. Its genes are composed of an Afghan / Skunk x Skunk # 1. It grows like a fir tree, forms an elongated headbud, and numerous side shoots, which are full to the brim with compact flowers. It thrives better when grown indoors, and phenotypes are bred separately by Alpha Genetics (Afghan Skunk x Skunk #1) and Beyond Top Shelf (Headband x The Cube).
The strain will instantly shot your head with potent effects in the form of lemon and hash flavor and aroma. The fast, relaxing buzz focuses on massaging the body but hits the cerebral aspect first, starting as compression from the temples and around the eyes. There are times that the pressure is also felt around the cheekbones, probably preparing the smoker for the giggles later on. The strain relaxes the whole body and also stimulates the mind. It increases productivity without a couch lock.
The weed can help in calming hyperactivity, which is a great benefit for ADD and ADHD patients. It also relaxes anxiety and depression patients and soothes chronic pain and inflammation. From head to toe, it delivers an instant soothing effect. It can relieve migraines and nausea, help in controlling seizures, down to curing arthritis. The strain is also perfect for insomnia patients.
Like most potent strains, dry mouth, irritated eyes, and dry throat are fairly common when taking the Headshot. However, anxiety, lethargy, migraine, uncontrollable coughing, and paranoia are uncommon and only experienced if one fails to stay within tolerance. It won’t hurt to rehydrate with water and making sure to control your intake.
The strain is best grown in the Sea of Green (SOG) method. It can unleash more potential if the growing method is combined with Low Stress Training (LST). The fertilizer should include nitrogen, phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium, but should never be overfed, or the plant will be at risk of nut burn.
