Hybrid (Sativa leaning)


Overall Score:


The Flower

Strain Lineage: Kush > Haze

Pigment: light – medium green hues. The reflection of the trichomes off the bud made it look lime green. The pistils are bright yellow and orange.

Ash Color: dark grey Aroma: The aroma is pretty solid. Immediately I could smell peanuts and hemp seeds. There was a lot of sweet citrus notes as well as cheesiness. The spice is subtle and hard to pick up.

Trichomes: The bud definitely dominated by sessile-stalked trichomes a lot of which were creamy and almost transparent-amber in color. The trichome population was healthy

Trim: terrible.

The Experience (Spliff)

Duration: 2 – 2.5 hours

Climax Duration: 25 minutes – 1 hour

Initial: I was pleasantly pleased about the flavor profile. The dry pull was citrus forward, it was a tropical medley of mangos, pineapples and oranges. I also picked up on some pine flavors too. The caryophyllene was on the back burner. When lit the smoke was bountiful and the flavors blended well. I noticed that the spliff was extremely oily from the ash tip to the mouth piece. I figured it was because I rolled the spliff backwards. It got so bad that I had to reroll the spiff again. The high seemed to elevate me gradually as if I was in an elevator which was stopping on every floor in a high-rise building.

Mid: After I rerolled the spiff I realized that this particular high wasn’t as exciting as I anticipated it to be. After stopping on the 12th floor and realizing I had 23 more floors to stop on before I reached my peak elevation, I just wanted to get off the ride instead. I found myself more interested in dissecting the herb more than I was in getting “higher.” Before I rerolled the spiff, I put the plant matter back under the microscope. What I peeled my eyes to was pretty interesting. I found myself to be very intuitive and investigative during this ‘elevated’ experience.

End: Honestly the end could’ve come sooner, and I wouldn’t have been upset. If I was to be entirely honest this would have to be my least favorite relative of the Mendo Breath family. The realization that I do not like this herb is surprising because I usually like BZAM’s products. This high definitely didn’t live up to their standards.

Flavor: Citrus forward like a tropical fruit drink which is because of the myrcene and limonene. I also pick up fresh pine like alpha-pinene or terpinene. The caryophyllene is very subtle I believe it maybe beta or trans. Packaging: The package was a small square-pocket-note size. It was completely black with two labelling stickers on other sized of the package. The interior has a silver-lining in it to protect bud integrity

Activity Pairing: I would pair this cultivar with a slow day. I day in which the consumer needs to take a rest. Possibly they had a busy day or week and they are finally allowed to rest for a bit, this would be for that moment. A moment that one doesn’t need to be extremely high but they want a little bit of a buzz.

Who We’d Suggest For: I would recommend this to the novice crowd, or someone looking to ween themselves off smoking the more heavier hitting cultivars. I would recommend this to someone who like to take their time getting high and doesn’t obsess over getting wasted.

The Verdict

If you were to show me what this herb looked like under the microscope first …. then maybe I would’ve thought this was deserving of the Woods Certification…. But now that I have consumed it I cannot say that we should. I found the high a little underwhelming and that maybe because I except higher standards from the breath family. The joke is that breaths are usually suppose to be a gradual uplift which this cultivar was (technically). I just feel like it doesn’t live up to the standards of our store. It’s confusing because it’s suppose to have high THC and it has a pretty solid amount of terpenes yet I it was still a ‘meh’ from me. The moisture and texture of the herb also was a hit and miss for me too because it wasn’t like anything I felt before. It felt fake which is weird to say but, I felt like it was an imposter… Anywhooot my verdict is that we say hasta la vista baby (terminator style)….
