Headbanger is a sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain that won the 2013 Amsterdam Cannabis Cup. It produces buds that are dense, an array of olive and light green, having amber pistils along with a thin dusting of crystal trichomes.
Headbanger's scent and taste are sour and of both diesel and citrus.
THC levels average between 25-28%, so novice consumers take heed. Its effects are known to increase energy in the consumer, along with uplifting the mood and calming stress and depression. Both mind and body will be tension-free as focus improves and tasks become seemingly easier to complete. Reviewers note this strain can be a creeper, taking up to 20 minutes for full effects to be felt if consuming via lungs. Couch-lock may occur if higher doses are consumed.
Headbanger can cause dry mouth and eyes, with rare cases of headache being reported. Note that many strains can cause paranoia or anxiety when consuming above tolerance levels.
