Overall it has become quite a popular strain among cannabis enthusiasts who appreciate its potent aroma and effects.
Characteristics of Garlic Breath
Garlic Breath is an indica-dominant hybrid strain created through crossing the classic GMO and Mendo Breath strains. Infamous for its pungent garlic aroma, Garlic Breath is a favorite among users who like to keep their identities secret! The aroma of this bud packs a punch of dank garlic and herbs that fills any room with its sharp stench as soon as you open your bag. The flavor, however, has notes of earthy herbs and spices mixed with a sweet citrusy overtone.
It’s high is one that’s best for a lazy night spent chilling out with friends or just watching your favorite movie. It starts with lifted effects that tend to center in the mind before spreading throughout the rest of your body in tingly warming waves of relaxation. As you settle into these sensations, you’ll start to become more and more sedated until sleepy exhaustion takes over and leaves you dozing off without warning! With these powerful effects and its high 22-24% average THC level, Garlic Breath is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as chronic stress or anxiety, depression, migraines or headaches and chronic fatigue.

Growing Garlic Breath
It is a popular strain of marijuana known for its thick, lush leaves and deep, earthy aroma. It is classified as an Indica-dominant hybrid, with 80% Indica genetics to 20% Sativa. This strain is considered relatively beginner-friendly for its robust yield, uniform growth pattern and lack of sensitivity to fluctuations in light and nutrient levels.
This type of strain grows best in an indoor setting or in sunny outdoor climates with warm summers. Its dense foliage requires ample amounts of water but should not sit in soggy soil. This strain will reach full maturity within 9 to 10 weeks and will produce thick, olive-green buds that are coated in sticky trichomes.
The effects of this strain typically include feelings of relaxation and euphoria along with heightened creativity. Because the THC content can reach up to 25%, Garlic Breath may also have sedative properties at higher dosages. Those looking for relief from pain, stress or insomnia may find that Garlic Breath provides the perfect remedy.
Harvesting Garlic Breath
Harvesting it is an important step in the cultivation of this strain and should be done carefully to ensure that its maximum potential is realized. This strain is moderately difficult to grow but yields great results for both indoor and outdoor growers. The buds are large, dense, and covered in a thick layer of frosty trichomes that give off a strong garlic scent when burned. To successfully harvest Garlic Breath, the plants must be harvested at the correct time. Generally, the best timing is after 8–9 weeks of flowering for optimal potency and potency maintenance as well as terpene preservation.
Plants should be cut down whole when about 70% of the pistils (hairs) on each flower cluster have changed color from white to dark brown or orange. Additionally, trichome formation will also tell you when it’s time to harvest; they should appear cloudy or with a few amber heads just before harvest. It’s important to note that harvesting too early can reduce potency due to underdeveloped buds and harvesting too late can cause the buds to dry out quickly and their flavor profile can become unacceptable after a certain point in the curing process. When in doubt, err on the early side so you don’t risk sacrificing any bud quality when it comes time to bring Garlic Breath home!
