Headband | Pure Sunfarms
Hybrid THC: 17-23% CBD: <1%
Born in California, but raised in BC, this high-THC variety delivers sweet and sometimes ‘gassy’ scents of allspice, nutmeg, lavender, lemon, coriander seeds, and stone fruit.
Sought-after for its high THC potential, our Headband is a hybrid of a Californian phenotype of OG Kush and Sour Diesel, a favourite of British Columbia’s Fraser Valley. Headband became popular in Ontario before finding a home in BC’s temperate climate. The dense, elegantly contoured flowers exhibit a range of green colours under a coat of sticky trichomes. Headband offers flavours and scents of sweet and savoury spices including allspice and nutmeg (caryophyllene), lavender (linalool), lemon and coriander seeds (humulene). The combination of these terpenes results in its signature ‘gassy’ smell.
Myrcene is a mellowing terpene found in high quantities in mangoes, eating it before consuming cannabis may strengthen the effects of THC and increase its absorption rate. With an earthy and musky scent, myrcene is also the most common terpene in cannabis, and is often found in larger quantities in indica-dominant strains. Strains that contain 0.5% of this terpene are usually indicas with sedative effects. It has also been reported that myrcene is useful in reducing inflammation and chronic pain and is known for being recommended as a supplement during cancer treatments.
Linalool is a calming terpene present in lavender, laurel, mint, birch trees, and rosewood. It is often present in high concentrations in sativa plants. Contemporary studies have shown that linalool is a powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic. Inflammation is a major component in the pain profile of cancers, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and arthritis.
Humulene is a motivating terpene found in hops, coriander, cloves, and basil, among other plants. Its aroma presents as woodsy and earthy with citrus overtones. Early research has shown humulene to be anti-proliferative, meaning it may prevents cancer cells from growing. It is known to be effective in suppressing appetite, making it a potential weight loss tool. It is also associated with reducing inflammation, relieving pain and fighting bacterial infections.
Caryophyllene is a balancing terpene common in basil, oregano, hops, and rosemary, and in spices such as cloves, caraway, black pepper, and cinnamon. It commonly presents notes of spice and pepper and has been associated with anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. The terpene beta-caryophyllene (BCP) shows promise for potentially helping treat anxiety and depression.
Bisabolol is a comforting, delicate, floral, peppery, and nutty-smelling terpene found naturally in the bark of the candeia tree and in chamomile. The anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties of bisabolol may potentially treat a variety of skin conditions and also acts as an antioxidant.
