Peanut Butter Breath

Peanut Butter Breath, a.k.a. Peanut Butter or Peanut Breath, is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (cultivar) that packs a punch. With a THC content of 26%, you can expect a hard-hitting cerebral high that sends a buzz around your entire body. Its effects suggest that Peanut Butter Breath would be ideal for managing stress & inflammation, anxiety and depression, chronic pain, and insomnia.

Peanut Butter Breath originated from ThugPug Genetics and is a cross between Do-Si-Do and the exceedingly rare Mendo Breath. Balanced strains, i.e., those with 50% indica and 50% sativa, are generally quite hard to come by. As the name implies, Peanut Butter Breath offers a deliciously sweet, buttery, nutty flavor like a candy peanut butter cup.

Peanut Butter Breath won first place in Toronto’s 2019 Karma Cup in the indica category. It’s popular for its pleasantly relaxing effects and delicious smell.
