Each month, Leafly highlights a trending strain you should know about —we call it Leafly HighLight.

Savory, nutty, and great for riding out the Omicron wave on your couch with The Witcher, Peanut Butter Breath is the Leafly HighLight for January. If you haven’t tried it—uncrack a jar. If you have, celebrate the win for prolific modern weed breeder ThugPug.

Still building in popularity, Peanut Butter Breath has 185 reviews on Leafly and a score of 4.6 out of 5. Reviewers praise its nutty, earthy, buttery taste, and relaxed, happy effects. These types of high-THC indica-hybrid strains can make you spacey and hungry.

“It took me 7 attempts to log in to write this including a password reset twice. I’m gonna go finish the bowl as a reward for my efforts. Stay safe,” states one Leafly reviewer.

“I didn’t feel like I got the munchies but I ate like 7 chocolate-covered caramel apple slices so you tell me,” wrote another Leafly reviewer.

Peanut Butter Breath isn’t exactly a wake and bake strain—unless you have a long day of TV to catch up on. Generally, it pairs better after work, when it’s time to kick your feet up, make a grilled cheese sandwich, and work on your Minecraft base.

The strain reportedly debuted in 2016 from Michigan breeder ThugPug, via seed banks and Michigan shops. Several online retailers sell versions of it now, and breeders cross it with other greats, like Equilibrium Genetics’ PB Triangles.

These days, Thug Pug continues his work on the “Breath” family of strains with varieties like Road Apples—bringing Apple Fritter together with genes from GMO, OG, and Grateful Breath. This January—a slew of Meat Breath crosses will sell out.

PB Breath awards


PB Breath took third for light-assisted greenhouse buds in The Emerald Cup 2018, as well as first in The Karma Cup of Toronto in 2019. PB Breath ice water hash placed second in The Emerald Cup in 2019, and first in 2020’s WEEDCon contest.

PB Breath terpenes


Like its parent Dosidos, PB Breath tests rich in limonene, caryophyllene, and linalool, according to lab results. That makes the weed smell spicy, earthy, and sweet—often evoking a peanut butter smell.

It’s official—the Leafly Strain of the Year 2021 has become a certified staple in America. It’s now number one in Arizona. Grab Dosidos coast to coast in flower or extract form.

PB Souffle

Dosidos and Lava Cake for the win. PB Souffle is sweeter than PB Breath and continues to gather fans. It’s got similar effects, too: “I just want to sit on the couch, eat ravioli, and astral project,” said one reviewer.

Durban Poison

We see you, classic sativa heads. Beat back winter blues with the number five most-searched strain this winter in Colorado, our oldest, most mature legal state. Hippies can confirm, Durban and a cup of coffee preps the psyche for whatever chores these cold, short days might throw you. Bonus: no munchies, consumers report—“Durban Poison is like the ‘espresso’ of cannabis.”

See ya next month for another Leafly HighLight.
