The 1 phenotype is a mix of the two parent strains, the 3 is most OG Kush-dominant, and the 5 is the Strawberry Diesel-dominant phenotype.
For the first couple of harvests, Delta 9 had a line out the door and was forced to organize customers into a deli-style ticket system to hold a place in line, just to buy a small amount of Banner 3 each customer could only purchase 3. While Delta 9 had the other phenotypes in its stable, the 3 was deemed to be the most prized and commanded the highest level of attention from customers and growers alike.

Hulk changed back into Banner and help cure the Gremlin, who helped Banner escape back to the U.
