Effects & Usage



Much like the comfort of a creamy peanut butter sandwich, Peanut Butter Breath (also known as Peanut Butter) emerges as a cherished delicacy with soothing, relaxing effects. This hybrid wonder is rooted in the history of Mendobreath and Do Si Dos strains. With a THC potency ranging between 15% to 28%, this strain doesn’t shy away from making its robust presence felt.


Given the usually substantial THC content, Peanut Butter Breath showcases its magic swiftly. Even veteran cannasseurs will quickly feel the intense euphoria enveloping their minds. Despite being an evenly split hybrid, the effects of the strain feel very much like an indica.

Although initially, there is a bit of creativity and cerebral rush, it is short-lived. Quickly afterwards, relaxation spreads down the entire body with tingles, eventually leading to such a mellow state that it will glue you to the couch with a strong case of munchies.

Just ensure that you prepare enough food in advance, as once Peanut Butter Breath fully takes its hold over you, you will not feel like doing much more. Not that you will mind – you will be left on a happy cloud, levitating high in the sky without a care in the world.

Versatility is Peanut Butter’s middle name. Its relaxing aura temporarily relieves stress, depression, OCD and PTSD by diminishing repetitive negative thoughts and replacing them with peace of mind. This effect may also facilitate deep sleep for those restless nights when you struggle with insomnia.

Thanks to the abundance of caryophyllene, pinene and CBG at 1%, the strain also displays anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties, which may diminish muscle cramps and headaches and soothe arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Although the potent feeling of hunger it induces is often seen as an adverse effect, for people dealing with a lack of appetite or eating disorders, Peanut Butter Breath will make for a reliable ally.

Side effects

The consumption of Peanut Butter Breath usually results in the sensations of dry mouth and eyes, as well as intense munchies. Although paranoia and anxiety are not that common, they have been reported, too. This is especially true in the case of overindulgence, low THC tolerance and a history of mental health problems. The key to enjoying the strain is, as always, moderation, so start with a single puff and increase the dosage gradually only if necessary.

Taste & Smell


Peanut Butter Breath flowers have an interesting structure – displaying elongated buds typical of sativas. Yet, they are densely packed like indica flowers. These forest green nugs are covered in a glistening trichome coat with an occasional deep orange pistil poking out here and there.

As for its aroma, the nuttiness is front and centre, while undertones of earth and herbs round off the experience. It’s like inhaling the very essence of a nutty forest. And the taste? A delightful mirroring of its aroma, making it an indulgence hard to resist. This isn’t a sweet strain – instead, it feels like a savoury treat.

GMO and Cheese may also be great options for enthusiasts of such tangy flavours.



The story of Peanut Butter Breath begins in Michigan, where ThugPug Genetics combined the delightful Do Si Dos with Mendo Breath. The name of this unusual creation, evoking the creaminess of the spread we love, aptly describes its smooth effects and the flavorful journey it offers. The strain has already gathered a dedicated following and won Toronto’s 2019 Karma Cup award.

Growing conditions

Cultivating your Peanut Butter Breath is best left for experienced growers, as it necessitates careful humidity monitoring. An environment that is too humid can easily lead to problems with pests and powdery mildew. As such, Peanut Butter Breath has the best potential to grow in a hot yet dry environment. The plants can get tall – from 1.8 metres indoors to over 2.5 metres outdoors, necessitating careful topping.

Flowering takes around nine weeks, with low to moderate harvest of 225 to 275 grams per square metre indoors and 275 to 325 grams per plant outdoors.
