Behind The Strain: Lamb’s Breath Auto

Lamb’s Breath boasts an uplifting buzz that will inspire you and have you dancing like you’re at a punky reggae party!

From the tropical island of Jamaica, comes a the classic Lamb’s Breath Auto sativa strain that Bob Marley praised as the healing of the nations!

Lamb’s Breath boasts an uplifting and cerebral buzz that will inspire you and have you dancing like you’re at a punky reggae party. The parentage of this strain is an original island favorite that’s been grown in the hills for decades by Rastafarians – the closest thing to a Jamaican “landrace” variety – or a strain that has acclimated to a particular climate over many generations. That authentic cultivar was bred over time until more modern techniques were used to shorten the growing period substantially.

Sometimes mislabled as “Lamb’s Bread” due to a misinterpretation of the Jamaican Patois pronunciation, this strain flaunts some interesting scents and flavors, including sweet creamy cheese along with some skunkyness that combine to make it both sweet and earthy, with a rich and dense smoke perfect for puffing through a traditional coconut chalice.

This particular version of Lamb’s Breath is an auto-flower, meaning it will begin flowering after a short vegetative stage regardless of the photoperiod. Indoors, I recommend keeping the lights at 18-hours on and 6-hours off throughout the entire life cycle of auto-flowering pot plants (as opposed to the 12-hour on/12-hour off lighting for flowering “regular” plants).

This strain loves hot weather and can handle higher-that-usual temperatures so it performs well in warmer regions outdoors, in greenhouses or indoors. Putting seedlings outside in April will result in a heavy harvest in July with a unique terpene profile generated by all that summertime sunshine. The plant can be finicky with too much nutrients however, so feed lightly and give her an appropriate amount of space to stretch as she grows and flowers.

So, if you’re feeling a bit sluggish and need some pep in your step, get yourself some Lambs Breath – the perfect strain for waking and baking and still getting things done. Pair a spliff with a cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee for an even bigger boost!

You can purchase Lamb’s Breath Auto strain seeds from Rocket Seeds or find legal flowers of it near you online at Weedmaps.
