Hog's Breath, The Hog, or Hawgsbreath, is a mostly Indica hybrid that took first prize at the High Times Cannabis Cup of 2002. Named after the pungent odor that emanates from the bud, the strain has a strong smell that may dissuade some from trying it. In spite of the smell, however, Hog's Breath produces a delightful stone, featuring a powerful uplifting body high that carries no fatigue. Fortunately, the taste of the buds is much sweeter than the smell with an earthy and piney aftertaste. Common side effects include dry mouth and eyes, anxiety, paranoia, and headaches.
A rare Indica that does not drag users down, Hog's Breath is a fantastic daytime medication, especially for those seeking relief from pain. It elevates mood and alleviates stress and anxiety. The strong munchies help those suffering from anorexia or cachexia.
Hog's Breath was originally created by a breeder named The Hog. It started as a clone-only plant from either San Diego or Tennessee and was taken up by TH Seeds, which back-crossed it to produce seeds. Easy enough for beginners to grow successfully, this strain flowers in eight to nine weeks. It rarely exceeds 140 centimeters in height and reportedly produces yields of up to 600 grams per square meter or 1,000 watts.
