I got the real 707 headband from becoming a member of topgrademedical.com in Oregon. All their medicine is lab tested. The lab results for their Super Lemon 707 Headband tested on 5-04-2013 are THC- 16.26% CBD of 0.14 and CBN of 0.13 and organic. Very smooth and this is a great exclusive strain! Love it!!
HeadBand is one of my all time favorite strains. Both indoor and outdoor versions I have always had very good experiences with. HAs a great skunky smell to it From the OG kush and Sour Diesel genetics. The taste is smooth and rich, very powerful aroma that will be noticed by others. The high affects you right in the forehead forcing your eyes half closed you will be walking around looking for munchies haha

Disclaimer: Review is based on the personal opinion of IE420Patient. Batches of the same strain can produce different results due to many factors thus, as with any "review" use as a guide, not as pure fact.
Strain Name: Headband
Date Acquired: June 29, 2011
Type: Hybrid (Sativa Dominant)
Looks: Large sticky light green nugs with a very heavy covering of trichomes with dark forest green spotting.
Smell: A woodsy pine scent and chlorophyll. Vicks VapoRub.
Taste: Very much like sweet/sour lemony powdery candy; produces a sweet lemony after taste that progresses to some serious "fuel" tasting dry mouth.
Buzz Type: It felt like someone was literally pushing down the top of my head while at the same time; pushing in my forehead. I felt slight tingle in the appendages. Deep smoke intakes will produce a quick a rush that will mellows out to a very balanced mellowing buzz. For a Sativa dominant version of Headband, it attacked pain very well but, can be a bit "head heavy" and play "up" your current mood and/or state of mind.
Buzz Length: Above Average to Long (1.5 to 2 hours)
* It's been well over a year that I have medicated with any kind of "version" of Headband. Now, I remember why this is typically a strain I am not reaching for...
I enjoyed taking big sniffs of this bud. I do like very similar smell of Vicks VapoRub (not sure if that is good or bad) and sniffs would clear my allergy laden nostrils. This batch of Headband does leave a strong lingering "medicine-like" odor. A few friends came by my home and said my office smelled like "Chinese medicine."
When the medicinal effect was calming, this is when I enjoyed this Headband most. I tend to get a bit over excited; especially when talking "weed." I noticed this strain calmed me down quite a bit allowing me to focus and get a lot of work done. But, I had to be by myself. I did not have the same medicinal effect when others were around.
A few times, I inhaled some larger than "normal" smoke which produced a serious head rush causing me to sweat with eyes immediately getting very low.
During some sessions, I felt this strain "pounded my head" a bit a too hard (the feeling as if I drank to many shots of Jägermeister or Goldschläger back in my day - just typing that almost made me sick). It's this unpredictable nature of this strain that causes me not to grab it. It did play up on my moods a few times. So, instead of being a little upset at something, I'd be ticked off. If in a happy/joyful mood, I might be singing a tune (which is something I normally do not do).
Other sessions, I would just be flat out lazy; not wanting to do anything, but rest and sleep. I even noticed an increase in appetite, but eating is a not a condition where I need assistance. I found myself eating at times when I really knew I was not hungry. This is a little hard to explain, but the increase in appetite I felt was NOT like having the case of the "munchies."
Also, many times I was hit with itchy RED eyes when coming down which could be a more of an issue specific to me given my dry eye condition. This strain exacerbated it and luckily, I always keep eye drops around.
Despite the negatives that personally affected me with this batch of Headband, I can still respect this is a solid strain for those who like Headband strains. As for sessions with this refill, my positive vs. negative experience was about 50/50. This strain actually "shined" more for me with the Vape. Use of the Vape deterred most of the negative side effects I had with use of glass bong.
Use of my Vape actually surprised me in a very good way. I was actually tasting a bit of unripe banana (green banana) with "thicker" vape draws, but mostly a sour lemony taste that is more noticeable as an after taste. I did cough a few times while vaping this strain. With the "lighter" buzz effect, I was definitely much more "in control" of this strain vs. use of my glass bong. I did not experience the "headiness" while using the Vape and actually had BETTER focus. One of the few times where "overall," I like the effect of a strain with the Vape vs. the Bong. If I was working around co-workers (or in an office), This batch of Headband would be a great strain to sneak in Vape sessions if I kept a portable Vape in the car with some pre-ground nugs.
This batch of Headband was definitely a winner in the Vape!
Cheers (& Cough),
