Strain Integrity

From WikiLeaf, ” Headbanger is a hybrid crossed from Biker Kush and sativa favorite Sour Diesel. It was created by Karma Genetics, the same breeders responsible for award-winning strains like Dominator and Happy Kush. So named for its genetic similarity to the legendary strain Headband, Headbanger offers users a strong, clearheaded high and a robust OG flavor. Its potency won it the title of Third Best Sativa in the 2013 High Times Cannabis Cup and Second Best Sativa in the 2015 IC 420 Growers Cup in Amsterdam. Its THC content has been measured at between 20% and 28%.

From the OCS, ” Head banger, or head scratcher? You decide. This unique flower has dark green features with hues of purple and is coated with trichomes. The head scratcher is the aroma! It starts off peppery and pungent before grind, but after grind it switches to a sweet candy like aroma. You’ll bang your head trying to figure this one out.

Headbanging time?

Headbanger by Delta 9 packaged on August 31, 2020, about 9 weeks before our purchase, cost $29.96 for 3.5 grams with 17.97% THC and a strong scent.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.

The “high” start with the inhalation as we could feel our senses calibrating a heightened sensitivity with clear focus and purpose.  We are getting “high” right away.  Ten minute slips away and before we knew what was going on we are heading past the 20 minute mark towards the first half hour of the session.  Everything is silky smooth with no edginess.

The first hour past quickly entertained by a focus creativity in a vibrant sunny optimistic space.  Headbanger conjures up a loud and noisy “high” expectation but delivers a smooth uplifting creative euphoric experience, which was totally unexpected.  This is a very enjoyable strain for productivity.  In real world test review, the “high” was euphorically engaging as we transversed great distance with impunity.

Activity pairing works for day and evening activities.  Headbanger by Delta 9 delivers a clear focus creative and euphoric “high” making this strain very weaponizable.  This is a traditional “Wake & Bake” type of sativa.

Would we buy this again?  No.  Competing against Delta 9’s Headbanger at 3.5 grams are 7 Acres’ Jack Haze ($32.95), Spinach’s Diesel ($32.95), Emerald’s Grapefruit GG1 ($29.95) and Altavie’s Cabaret ($24.95) to name a few of our personal favourites in this genre.

On an investment note, Delta 9 just reported their Q3/2020 results yesterday with a 96% Year over Year growth but flat Quarter over Quarter, which is a more important metric for growth.  What impressed us was Delta 9 announcement to buy back 10% of their public shares and their debt.  Is this false bravado?  Or, are things really looking that good?
