If I recall correctly, I wrote my first review on Headband early 2017, I was quite taken by it. I don’t remember the date, but I do remember the price: $14 per gram, which was quite high compared to the average price for that time period. The title of my review was: Zen (something) at WTF Prices, which was nice of Lift to allow.
Back then, I was happy to accept an OG Kush or a Sour Diesel at face value. Now, I’d really like to know the specific phenotype, or the breeder. Otherwise, it’s just an OG Kush, or a Sour Diesel.
Crosses that follow this pathway are not rare, there are more than a handful available in the Canadian recreational market. Many I have already reviewed, some are available for less. What it boils down to is that I don’t really know what I have here, which is frustrating. Contrast this with Tweed’s competing offering of Sour Kush, I know what the offering actually is, and who bred the cultivar, because their logo is printed on the side of the package.
I quite like the tastes of this cultivar, but I stop short telling you that there is an element of the buying experience that lives up to the price point. That’s my approach, but still with an open mind for the possibility of good value here, so let’s get into Tilray’s Headband.
