One of our very first review was High Tide’s Ghost Train Haze. A year and a half later, this is our second review of High Tide. Packaged April 20, 2020, Headband by High Tide with 18.36% THC cost $28.50 with a mildly unpleasant citrus odour.
The “high” is euphoric starting slowly with the inhalation. The effects come on steadily over the first 15 minutes starting with a growing euphoria, a medium strength energy boost, upper body physical lift sensation around the head (no head banding effect) and strong time dilations paired with creative curiosities were very entertaining. Twenty minutes vanished with a snap of our fingers. We have entered the Twilight Zone.
After an hour, the “high” decline was a noticeable step down towards normality. Unlike a Broken Coast Quadra with a fuller spectrum effect and longer “high” experience profile, Headband by High Tide has a less intense spectrum profile and the decline is earlier delivering a shorter experience. But, Headband by High Tide is $20 cheaper.
In our other review protocols like shopping and walking, Headband by High Tide performed much more modestly. In our walking review, the first half hour was particularly difficult as the sedation effect increased we became more lethargic making walking more challenging. After half an hour as the sedation subsided, we felt more energy and the walk became more enjoyable. Headband by High Tide is a very functional “high” and shopping was fun and a breeze.
Activity pairing should avoid strenuous type of activities like walking, or shopping. Stereotypically, Indica are best for doing nothing. We think that is the best activity for the Headband strain.
