707 Headband, usually known as Headband or even just HB, is a slightly indica-dominant strain that delivers a robust blend of powerful physical and cerebral effects. This delectable hybrid features some legendary genetics and is a great strain for anyone looking to enjoy a well-balanced experience. Originally popularized on the West Coast and in the Colorado region, Headband’s fantastic flavor and effects have seen it quickly spread in popularity across the United States and Canada.
Headband 707 Genetics
Headband’s genetics are a little bit murky, but it’s generally accepted as an OG Kush descendant.
Depending on who you ask, the 707 Headband strain originates either from a cross between OG Kush and Sour Diesel or OG Kush, Sour Diesel, and Master Kush. Another theory suggests that this strain came courtesy of The Breeder’s Lab which created it by crossing NYC Diesel, OG Kush, and Master Kush.
What’s with all the mystery around Headband’s genetics? The origins of this strain have been somewhat lost to time, with no way to 100% confirm who exactly created it or how. What we do know is that the ‘707’ in the strain’s name represents an area code of northern California and that there’s a good chance that this strain was probably birthed somewhere in the Humboldt County area. The rest of the name is likely a reference to the strain’s cerebral effects, implying that they can sometimes feel like you’re actually wearing a headband.
Headband Strain Effects
Headband is sometimes labeled as a balanced hybrid and sometimes as a 60/40 indica-dominant strain, because its effects lean ever-so-slightly to the indica side of the equation. The experience has been described as being relaxed and happy in nature, with a nice balance between euphoric physical effects and a relatively clear-headed feeling. Headband’s effects are supported by some impressive THC levels that can reach as high as the 23%-24% range.
Many who try Headband say it makes them feel creative, euphoric, and uplifted. Despite its fairly clear-headed experience, Headband isn’t usually considered to be a good early morning strain as its effects seem to be more relaxing than energizing. Instead, the 707 Headband strain is probably best enjoyed in the afternoons or early evenings when you can afford to be a little bit lazier.
Headband Strain Aroma
Headband 707 is mostly known for its complex effects, but its impressive genetics ensure that it’s also blessed with a bold aroma and flavor profile. Thanks to the Diesel and Kush lineage in its background, you can expect the Headband strain to fill up the room with its big and skunky smell.
It’s often been described as having a strong and pungent skunk smell with hints of diesel and lemon, very much like its parent strain OG Kush. Some of the most common terpenes in 707 Headband include caryophyllene, myrcene, and limonene.
Headband Strain Appearance
Headband 707 buds tend to be medium-sized, though oftentimes they can grow small and popcorn sized as well. They’re usually a forest-green color that’s neither too bright nor too dark. You can expect to find a considerable layer of orange hairs spread out across the buds and interwoven into the layer of frosty trichomes that cover them.
Growing The 707 Headband Strain
Headband is a fairly flexible strain that can be grown both indoors and outdoors. It’s considered to be moderately difficult to grow and known to produce a relatively moderate to low yield, especially if grown indoors.
