Peanut Butter Breath

While you won’t get it stuck in your teeth, the name of this award-winning strain might just make you salivate. Honestly, that’s one of the major themes of the overall Peanut Butter Breath experience—the munchies!

Peanut Butter Breath

Peanut Butter Breath gets its name from its nutty flavor profile. It was bred by crossing Dosidos and Mendo Breath F2, making it a beautifully balanced hybrid strain with chill sedative properties. Dosidos lends it an earthy flavor that softens the sweet vanilla and caramel notes of Mendo Breath. Both have serene relaxing qualities that can clearly be felt when smoking Peanut Butter Breath.

Plus, with genetics like those, it’s no wonder that Peanut Butter Breath has popular descendants like GooberZ (Grape Pie x Peanut Butter Breath), Nutta Butta (The White Krome cut x Peanut Butter Breath), and Panama Jakk (Tropicanna Cookies x Peanut Butter Breath).

Peanut Butter Breath Strain Effects: Indica or Sativa?

Most users describe a cerebral lift that takes effect quickly after the first inhale. This uplifting effect is comfortably euphoric and helps soothe any lingering stress or anxiety from the day. After that, a pleasant tingling starts in the back of the neck before slowly spreading throughout the rest of the body. This buzzing sensation is the ultimate relaxation, and continued use will have you unable to leave your couch—not even for the snacks you’re sure to be craving.

Increased appetite is one of the main side effects of Peanut Butter Breath (along with drowsiness, dry mouth, and dry eyes). Fortunately, those who need to combat nausea or build up an appetite will find the boost to their hunger appealing. Others have turned to Peanut Butter Breath to help with anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. 

The effects of this strain tend to be long-lasting, so it’s imperative that you plan ahead when using Peanut Butter Breath. Want to relax at a social event while still being conversational? Use lightly. Ready to stay in for the evening and veg out on the couch? Smoke to your heart’s content. Just be sure to have a beverage and a few snacks handy. It’s a great strain for winding down after work while still being able to converse with friends—as long as there’s food involved.

Peanut Butter Breath Characteristics and Terpenes

The distinctive earthy, nutty quality of its flavor comes from dominant terpenes limonene, caryophyllene, and linalool. The initial smell is pungent and earthy, and upon smoking, notes of fresh peanuts are elevated by a hint of citrus and pine. Maybe it doesn’t taste precisely like peanut butter, but the flavor and aroma will likely satisfy those with a peanut butter craving.

The buds are oblong with an olive shape and come in varying shades of green (mostly light green with darker green/purple leaves). When grown properly, the frosty coating of trichomes perfectly highlights the fiery orange-red pistils. When it comes to lab results, THC levels can fall anywhere between 17-25% while CBD levels are less than 1%. That makes Peanut Butter Breath particularly potent, and not for the faint of heart.

Peanut Butter Breath Strain Seeds and Grow Info

While ThugPug Genetics keeps quiet on their specific growing recommendations, they do work with several vendors where you can find and purchase seeds. Terpy Seeds, Harvest Mutual Seed Company, Luscious Genetics, and Tree Stars Seed Bank all carry Thug Pug products. However, you’ll have to keep an eye out for Peanut Butter Breath seeds, as they tend to sell out fast. You can also find seeds on Strainly, but you’ll likely spend at least $100 per seed.

Growing Peanut Butter Breath should perhaps be left to the experts—or at least to those who have a lot of time to tend these plants. Growing conditions need to be strictly monitored, so an indoor growing operation may be more suitable for maximum control. That being said, any plants cultivated outdoors require a Mediterranean climate. 

This plant has a very low tolerance for pests and disease, which is made even more tricky because it likes quite a bit more food than other plants. Depending on your feeding method of choice, watch out for mold indicators for botrytis or powdery mildew. Generally, plants are of medium height, will flower somewhere between 8-10 weeks, and may yield up to 12 oz per plant.
