Pot Head is the first EP by California desert rock band Yawning Man. Released in June via Spanish label Alone Records, this EP saw release during the band's very first tour. Notably it's the only Yawning Man release to not feature bassist Mario Lalli as he had moved out of the desert at the time of recording. However he gave his blessing for Billy Cordell to fill in for this EP and the 2005 tour.

Pot Head was initially released on CD and Vinyl. The vinyl edition was a 10" limited to 1000 copies in black, grey marble and purple marble. A reissue with handmade art was composed in collaboration with Leah Polk of Plastic Cactus, limited to 300 copies on the band's 2016 European tour.
