About this Hybrid Strain
A breeder out of San Diego named James “The Hawg” Gonzalez passed away in 2011, but his legend lives on. His cannabis creations are still sought-after, including the one dubbed “Hawgs Breath." Winner of the 2002 High Times Cannabis Cup, Hawgs Breath was created by crossing a Northern Lights #5 male with a William’s Wonder female.
The high offered from the Hawgs Breath strain is reputedly an energetic one that comes with a surprising amount of mental clarity. Unlike other Indicas that sometimes “couch-lock”, it shouldn’t be a problem with this strain. The numbing body-buzz some reviewers describe feeling is narcotic-like and great for alleviating chronic pain, without inducing drowsiness.
Hawgs Breath THC levels generally average around 17%, while it boasts a high CBD level near 3%. Its dominant terpenes include humulene and caryophyllene. These terpenes have been found to host anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. This high CBD level combined with a moderate THC level makes Hawgs Breath an excellent choice for those that want to stay sharp. Reviewers have claimed to have maintained a certain level of mental clarity.
The Hawgs Breath nuggets are woodland-green with a generous assortment of fiery-orange pistils. The protective coat of clear, crystal trichomes gives the buds a spring-green color in areas of higher concentrations.
Hawgs Breath was not only named after its creator, but after its funky odor which has been described as being similar to a wet dog mixed with skunk. Thankfully, combusting this strain brings out flavors of sugary candy and pine to make it much more palatable.
