The world of cannabis is rife with strains, but few command attention like the Headbanger. A visual spectacle, its dense, trichome-rich buds are a sight to behold. The aroma, reminiscent of robust OG strains, is a complex interplay of sour, diesel, and citrus that beckons from afar. And as one indulges, a symphony of flavours, led by earthy OG notes, unfolds on the palate. Yet, beyond these sensory delights lies its potent effects. A euphoric upliftment swiftly transforms into profound relaxation, making even the mundane captivating. With its multifaceted allure, Headbanger is not just a strain; it’s an experience.

The Headbanger is an opulent specimen to gaze upon. One is immediately struck by its dense buds, artfully crafted and teeming with countless trichomes. Showcasing an enticing palette of olive and light green, amber pistils punctuate its rich texture, while a subtle frost of crystal trichomes adds a hint of mystique. For anyone fortunate enough to view the Headbanger plants directly, the trichomes’ lush distribution across buds and leaves is unmistakably evident.

Mirroring its aroma, the Headbanger strain dazzles the palate with its gassy, earthy OG flavour. Each draw resembles a symphony, where earthy tones harmonise seamlessly with a lingering sweetness.

Commencing with a euphoric crescendo, the effects of Headbanger are both potent and multifaceted. An initial surge of upliftment gives way to relaxation, with bouts of creativity punctuating the experience. The intensity of this strain is palpable, with many finding its power surprisingly overwhelming yet wholly enjoyable. Best suited for afternoons or evenings, its allure lies in its ability to sharpen senses, making even mundane tasks seem fascinating.


Cultivating the Headbanger demands a careful touch. While seeds are available for purchase, this strain thrives in humid environments, with temperatures ranging from 72 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Regular pruning is essential, given its tendency to stretch up to 60 inches. With an average flowering time of 10-12 weeks, harvests beckon after 56 days, yielding 1-2 Oz/Ft² indoors and up to 20 Oz/plant outdoors.


Headbanger’s terpene profile is diverse and abundant. Notably, Valencene (0.18%) leads the composition, followed by Caryophyllene (0.08%), Carene (0.12%), Myrcene (0.16%), Limonene (0.16%) and others. The total terpene content stands at 0.99%.

Medical Properties

Beyond its recreational appeal, Headbanger serves as a remedy for many ailments. Stress, depression, mood disorders, migraines, insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, and pain are all alleviated under its influence.


In summary, the Headbanger strain, an esteemed winner of the 2013 Amsterdam Cannabis Cup, offers a dynamic sensory experience. With its distinctive aroma, taste, and effects, it’s a treat for both novice and seasoned cannabis connoisseurs.
