Pure Sunfarms Headband Review

Headband from Pure Sunfarms is a hybrid strain of OG Kush and Sour Diesel. It became popular in Ontario before finding a home in BC’s temperate climate.

Pure Sunfarms Headband being grown in a high-tech greenhouse where each bud is carefully trimmed and hand-groomed to precise standards. According to their website this strain features dense, elegantly contoured flowers that show a range of green colours under a layer of trichomes.

We were really impressed with Pure Sunfarms Blueberry Kush but when we reviewed their Pink Kush strain we thought that product was just okay. That made us curious about how this hybrid would perform. Headband is known for several flavours and scents including allspice and nutmeg (caryophyllene), lavender (linalool), lemon and coriander seeds (humulene).

But how does Headband from Pure Sunfarms measure up?

The product arrives in an industry standard medium size zip bag. Opening the bag released a distinct pepper aroma, it was hard to detect any other smells due to the peppery scent being so strong.


These buds were twiggy and stringy. Stems and excess leafs aside, the bud itself is a dull shade of green and leafy which appear sticky due to the trichome glisten. However the visual appearance is just okay, nothing that will wow or impress you. But given the low price not too surprising.


For those whom love their black pepper, you’re in flavour country with this one and will have a raw throat to prove it. As harsh as one can imagine, the flavour is strong from start to finish.


Pure Sunfarms Headband is listed as having 17.4% THC content and a price tag of $22.95 for 3.5 grams. We found it did less a number on the head and more of on the body. A decent lethargic buzz that leaves you feeling a bit tired but not one that will knock you out. Not bad for the price, but we prefer Palmetto’s Headband strain more.

Headband from Pure Sunfarms is just okay. Visually it won't impress you but it does have a distinct peppery aroma and flavour. Combine that with a decent lethargic buzz and you get a middle of the road cannabis product. We've seen better and we've seen worse. Case closed.
