First bred by Jordan of the Islands, Cactus is an indica cross between Afghani and Northern Lights and is named after its vague resemblance to the pear cactus. Cactus buds are conic with knobby formations and emit an organic earthy aroma with citrus notes. This strain is known to be an adept painkiller, providing relief to aches and sore muscles as well as spasms and anxiety. Many describe Cactus as having uplifting, energizing effects. It has become a popular staple among the connoisseurs of Seattle and was among the first-place winners in the 2012 High Times Cannabis Cup.

Cactus breath has a pungent skunky odour that possesses undertones of garlic and herbs. While the smell isn’t incredibly appetizing to everyone, and the flavour is less than desirable, the effects are what keep consumers coming back for more. Cactus Breath fans say it creates a calming euphoria that relaxes both body and mind, allowing a happy tranquility to overtake you. They say you should not expect to get anything done while using this strain as it tends to create couchlock and keeps the mind foggy. Forming comprehensive thoughts isn’t likely, so using this strain in the evening close to bedtime may be a good choice. Watching TV or zoning out are ideal activities while on this strain.

Properly dosing Cactus Breath is important as it could lead to anxiety if ingested. Expect dry mouth, and have a hydrating drink by your side before consuming this strain. Reviewers tend to enjoy this strain because they feel it helps their mind drift into a deep sleep.

It gets its genetics from combining Mendo Breath with Cactus, creating a potent hybrid that displays mostly indica effects rather than any sativa. THC levels can vary depending on how this strain’s crops are cultivated, so ensure you check THC levels before taking your first dose.
