Bud Buzz: 818 Headband strain is one of those cannabis strains that is full of surprises and nearly all of them are good ones. First is the smell and taste because of the amount of limonene terpenes. This gives a more citrusy aroma and flavor were expected but the spicy peppery smell and taste was light but noticeable. This strain is known for being a true hybrid but the way it hits seems to differ for each person. For this particular review, it was more of a Sativa dominant hybrid.
818 Headband has a bit of a creeper effect and how you are feeling the first 30 minutes will keep evolving so first time users, keep that in mind. The happy euphoric feeling and head buzz are the first noticeable benefits and wow do they last, for hours. This strain might be one of the longest lasting cannabis strains out there. Bonus!
The headband feeling is real and some people love it and feel like it’s comforting but other people are annoyed by it as it’s an individual preference. You will feel it though so be prepared. A super creative happy buzz with no anxiety at all. Great for a wake and bake session or a daytime cannabis experience. It may not be the best choice for sleep but as this strain is amazing for pain relief and stress, it could definitely help you unwind at the end of the day and will not knock you out. The only negatives are dry mouth and some feeling of eye dryness, so keep those drops handy.
Drinkables– With the flavor profile of this cannabis strain, if you are a beer drinker, you may enjoy a stout or ruby red, but don’t overdo as too much can quickly turn that happy euphoria into something less fun. Water is a little dull but flavored sparkling water is perfect. Stay hydrated with this cannabis strain as the effects are so long lasting.
Munchables– When you are ready to eat, and you will be within two hours or so, start small with some chips and salsa, maybe some cheese enchiladas. For some mysterious reason any type of Mexican food is a must. If you are craving something sweet and aren’t a flan fan, ice cream and some churros really hit the spot.
Doables– This is a super uplifting creative cannabis strain so utilize at least some of your buzz to be creative. Learn a new song on the guitar, even better, write a new song. 818 Headband strain can be a social strain for some but not for everyone so if you are naturally an introvert and want to do your own thing, it’s all good or you can talk and laugh with friends if you are feeling the social side of things. Perfect for gamers too.
