707 Headband Flower
Case: 707 Headband (flower)
File Date: 08/30/2016
Case No: 0043
Type: Indica-dominant Hybrid (approximately 60%/40%)
Genotype: 707 Headband = OG Kush (F1 cut) X Sour Diesel
The exact original lineage for 707 Headband is debated, though most believe it’s some version of OG Kush crossed with Sour D. Many also claim this strain was originally developed by The Breeder’s Lab and is a cross between NYC Diesel, OG Kush and Master Kush.
DNA Genetics bred a version of 707, which is now widely available and a common pheno in dispensaries, especially on the West Coast.
The name is derived from an area code from the San Francisco Bay Area of California (i.e., 707), which is where this strain first gained notice. And “headband” is a direct reference to the effects this strain can have on its users.

Effects: True to this strain’s genetics, the effects are a relatively balanced body and mind experience that leans a little to the body. I found this cut to have wonderful calming element for the muscles and the stresses of the mind. And no heavy couch lock effect in moderate doses.

This was a very pleasing cut of 707.
