OG Headband & 707 Headband From Delta 9 (Merkaba)
We don’t normally have reviews that are comparison in nature, but I thought this one was interesting. And beautiful. All at the same time. Make sure to note that there are pics of both strains.
Camera Used: Olympus FE-46
Name: OG Headband
Type: Hybrid – I’m unsure of the breakdown, but this batch is balanced a little Headband dominant, it seems. Stony all around whether it’s in the mind or body. Both indica and sativa are highly evident.
Price: $18/gram, $55/8th
Looks: Very tight and compact bract and calyx structure. Very generous trichome development on all plant material surfaces. The pistils are a very light, vibrant orange color. The plant material surfaces are almost olive green in color, but totally masked by the abundance of milky trichomes.
Smell: Smells totally Headband dominant at first, but a subtle lemony OG hint can be detected with a keen nose. The OG smell could be more prominent in the mix, but the buttery skunk funk of the Headband is equally as interesting to a refined sense of smell.
Taste: Headband dominant on the inhale, changes to a nice hashy OG to finish up with a buttery, foody HB taste on the exhale. This herb has what I like to refer to as “chameleon taste” where the taste is changing shapes and palates all to your delight. (Smoking out of my new Sheldon Black bubbler; not too clean, but the not dirtiest it’s been since I’ve had it.)
Buzz Type: A total hybrid high. It’s really up AND REALLY stony; slightly narcotic as well. This and more so the 707 Headband I’ve been getting recently have been helping me tremendously with common appetite stimulation issues I experience often. Headband helps me grub down hard. It’s a pretty positive buzz as well – making all perceptions really high and light hearted.
Buzz Length: Medium – Long; I have a high tolerance, and smoke often. This OG Headband really has the lengthy high I’ve been searching for with no immediate burn out – but common use will build a tolerance after a couple weeks like any other exceptional strain. So enjoy, but I wouldn’t indulge for too long.
Overall: I must say I’ve fallen in love with the Headband genotype. It’s definitely one I plan on keeping up with as time goes on. Aesthetically, the OG Headband I have is more appealing than the 707 Headband I had available, but I have to love the 707 a little more cause of the butteriness of it all, and I just like the potency better. I just cant dig it enough.
Thanks Merkaba for the awesome pics. Enough to make one drool. –Mrs. Chubbs
