Strain of the Week: Peanut Butter Breath




Peanut butter is a wholly unique ingredient, and it’s the perfect tie-in with other types of food—keeping it high on the list of some of the best combinations ever. That very essence of creamy, and sometimes crunchy, texture works to perfect the classic flavor of peanuts. Whether it’s combined with chocolate, jelly or just a simple slice of toast, everyone can agree that peanut butter is pretty great (unless you’re allergic). So when the properties of a typical peanut butter inspire a cannabis strain, you know it’s going to be something special.

Obviously cannabis strains were not magically crossed with peanut plants, but somehow a strain called Peanut Butter Breath embodies that traditional peanut flavor. Its parents consist of Mendo Breath F2 and even more importantly, Do-Si-Dos (named for its nutty likeness of the Girl Scout’s peanut butter sandwich cookies). Thus, Peanut Butter Breath obtains a nut-like flavor that also pairs with earthy and herbal notes as well. According to CULTURE reviewers, the particular sample of Peanut Butter Breath which we received was cultivated in coco coir soil.

A cut of Peanut Butter Breath is a sight to see, as this strain tends to be almost completely covered with dark purple leaves and a wonderfully thick coat of white trichomes. Some report that it even offers a bevy of tiny orange hairs peeking out amidst the purple.

The importance of a strain does not lie solely on its appearance or flavor profile though, but in its effects—and boy does Peanut Butter Breath offer a great experience. Upon inhaling, this strain instantly works its magic. Many report this effect beginning in the head and quickly moving throughout the rest of the body. Peanut Butter Breath is also an indica-dominant strain, making it an indispensable medicine for patients who suffer from medical conditions such as anxiety, arthritis, migraines, muscle spasms and nausea, to name a few.
