ZedBand from Alien Labs

Thank you to WestCoastCanna for this strain review. 

First Impressions9.3/10

Bred by Alien Labs, the ZedBand showcases itself as a perfectly balanced 50/50 Hybrid, resulting from the intersection of Zkittlez and Headband strains. My review sample came in the form of 2 dominant large nugs, complemented by 4 smaller ones. Their density is remarkable, and their distinctive, lumpy growth pattern gives them a unique appeal. The kaleidoscope of greens, accented by fiery tangerine hairs, is dazzling, with a frosty trichome blanket hinting at the power within. The cure seemed slightly under, which, in my opinion, is still better than being overcured.

Aroma and Palate9/10

The experience starts with a bold aromatic punch of ground black pepper, unmissable and intensely fragrant. As this powerful note subsides, you’re met with a symphony of sweet and sour overtones – lemon and grapefruit leading the parade, with whispers of grape and musk lingering in the background. The flavor profile mirrors this olfactory journey – a spicy kick, softened by a lingering sweet finish. The only critique here is the slightly sluggish burn, marked by a deeper ash hue.


True to its 50/50 hybrid roots, ZedBand delivers an instantaneous cerebral embrace – a trademark of the headband lineage. This initial rush soon mellows into a serene and euphoric haze, enveloping both the mind and chest. While it won’t send you off to slumber, it proficiently soothes the senses and sparks a wave of creative euphoria. Its potency is felt more profoundly with each subsequent puff, characterized by a notably extended peak.


ZedBand offers an invigorating dance of peppery fervor and subtle sweetness, underlined by a wave of tranquility and euphoria. The only hiccup in this otherwise mesmerizing experience is the slightly lackluster burn. But all in all, a must-try for those seeking a unique floral adventure.
