Utilize Grandpa’s Breath in the evening to maximize the deep relaxation central to its effects. Grandpa’s Breath is a mostly indica strain with slow-moving effects, As its name might suggest, Grandpa’s Breath has a pungent aroma that may be polarizing for consumers. The strain’s THC content ranges from 15% to 20%.

The first impression wafting up from buds of Grandpa’s Breath is an earthy funk, redolent of damp soil and leaves. Closer inspection may also pick up on some astringent fumes of diesel. When these flowers are broken apart or ground up, they give off more of a rich, incense-like odour -- a testament to their Kush lineage. Despite all these bold, earthy aromas, Grandpa’s Breath has a surprisingly smooth smoke when burnt in a pipe or a joint; this smoke can taste skunky with traces of sweetness on the exhale. It may take several minutes before consumers notice the high from Grandpa’s Breath take hold. At first, the strain can exercise heady effects like a constricted feeling around the lower forehead and temples or some flushing in the cheeks. As they adjust to these odd tics, users may observe that their thoughts have taken on a seemingly elevated quality. Ideas may occur to them more frequently or may feel interconnected to any external circumstances or events. This plugged-in, cerebral mindset can help to accomplish work on detailed tasks or can simply provide some background entertainment as they go about an otherwise boring agenda. Additionally, Grandpa’s Breath can serve as a lubricant in social settings, sparking camaraderie and free-flowing conversation.

After 45 minutes to an hour, Grandpa’s Breath may start to introduce some palpable physical effects to round out its potent high. Smokers may feel a heavy, leaden sensation start to creep into the limbs and eyelids alike. This sudden relaxation can undo some of the strain’s initial feelings of energy or motivation and may even inspire active, busy users to make a beeline for the comforts of home. An increase in dosage is likely to lead to a pleasantly incapacitated state of couchlock in which any activities more demanding than daydreaming or binge-watching are unlikely. Because of its slow dip into sedation, Grandpa’s Breath is recommended for early evening or nighttime consumption.

The mostly downbeat vibe that comes with Grandpa’s Breath can also have a few applications for medical cannabis patients. For one, the mental edge that comes with this high’s onset can be a tool for concentration for those with attention deficit disorders. Additionally, its ability to improve mood can temporarily diminish the symptoms of mild to moderate stress or depression. Physically speaking, this strain may squelch aches and pains, whether they’re due to temporary inflammation or to chronic conditions like lupus or arthritis. In a totally relaxed setting, this soothing bud may even put insomniacs to sleep.

A dynamic strain, Grandpa’s Breath is a great choice for indica fans who want some measure of mental stimulation. It’s as fun to toke alone as it is to share with some likeminded friends.
