Strain Review: OG Kush Breath x Pancakes “Pancake Breath” by Old Growth Vermont
A cross between OG Kush Breath and Pancakes, Pancake Breath by Old Growth Vermont (OGV) is a gorgeous looking flower with an equally gorgeous effect. Earthy and pine-y with a touch of citrus, this strain starts with a heavy head high and gradually makes its way down the body for long-lasting, calm euphoria.
Grown with a living soil regiment of dry amendments, water, and added biology via compost teas and extracts, this indica-dominant hybrid is sure to treat you right. According to OGV Master Grower Shane McFarlin, this strain “shows her crystals far before any other strains in the room, but also finishes in around 65 days.”
Strain Review: Pancake Breath
Towards the end of her cycle, this strain yields golf ball-sized, crystal covered nuggets that show dark purple-colored sugar leaves. I would recommend using a grinder for this bud as it is quite sticky at the outset. “Pancake Breath is one of the more heavy-hitting strains in the Old Growth arsenal,” says McFarlin.
Pancake Breath has a steady incline of bliss. I would recommend reading, watching or doing something creative.
Instantly upon unscrewing the lid of the bud’s container, a sweet aroma filled the room. Olfactory memories being some of the strongest, I was immediately transported back to my early days of smoking in the woods surrounded by pine trees. And the taste held true to the smell.
While the pine flavor stood out the most to me, the citrus undertones are not to be discounted. There is also a certain sweetness that reminded me of the way maple syrup tastes straight from the tap. This was very refreshing and smooth when smoked from a bong. The flavor was crisp and, in departure from the bud I usually smoke, didn’t linger on my tongue for too long.
Pancake Breath has a steady incline of bliss. I would recommend reading, watching or doing something creative. However, this is not the strain I’d recommend using before doing something physically demanding — unless, of course, you find creativity through exercise.
The innovation and artistry offered by Pancakes combined with the calming effect of OG Kush Breath makes Pancake Breath one of my new favorite strains.
The sky was hazy all morning and I seemed to have timed my sesh perfectly with the rainfall. The weather matched the way this bud made me feel. No, not dreary and depressed, but rather, delighted by everything. This strain seemed to release me of my anxieties at that moment and help me find beauty in all that surrounded me. About twenty minutes in, I felt my mind slow down to a point where I could value each thought passing through my head instead of scrambling to keep up with each one like I normally do.
I would highly recommend this strain to anyone experiencing anxiety, insomnia or a lapse of creativity. The innovation and artistry offered by Pancakes combined with the calming effect of OG Kush Breath makes Pancake Breath one of my new favorite strains, hands down.
