Lamb's breath

Looks: Lamb’s Bread buds have open, fluffy calyxes like a traditional sativa. Although they can get fat and round, the nugs are usually long and cone-shaped, with little density. Color is pretty generic, with light- to forest-green buds, moderate milky and amber trichome coverage and rusty-orange pistils.

I don’t smoke pot with my dad, but I wish I did. It would be fun to get perspectives on cannabis strains from a man who enjoys his coffee black and his beer cold, with very few exceptions. Not one to spice things up that are fine the way they are, my old man would be a fan of Lamb’s Bread if he ever picked up the pipe — just as I imagine every no-bullshit person would.
Flavor: Its taste won’t wow you or win any awards, but the strain can be pleasant on the palate. Potentially pleasing to fans of savory strain flavors like hash, coffee and sandalwood, Lamb’s Bread starts with spicy, woody notes reminiscent of rye, but then falls into a creamy, hash-flavored back end.

Effects: Lamb’s Bread’s uplifting high is more clear than those of popular sativas such as Haze strains and even landraces like Durban Poison. A great daytime smoke for potheads and medical patients alike, the sativa is great for exhaustion, stress, anxiety and headaches, as well as for amplifying creativity and decreasing social inhibitions.

Lamb’s Bread was popular on the street in the ’90s and early ’00s, though commercialization hasn’t embraced it like it has other seasoned strains. As a result, Lamb’s Bread might be easier to find on the street in other states than in Colorado dispensaries, but a few pot shops around town still carry it. The Dab Co., Denver Kush Club and Good Chemistry all currently sell the strain, and Botanico has sold it in the past. All of the stores listed sell it for $40 an eighth or less, but Good Chemistry seems to have grown it the most consistently, with a funky, woody smell and giggly but controllable high.

Smell: While some connoisseurs might disregard the smell of Lamb’s Bread because of the lack of sweet, citrus or earthy notes, it still carries scents that non-stoners would like. Spicy, cheesy and skunky scents with hints of wood dominate; think Bubba Kush, but with less chocolate and coffee and more spice.

Lamb's Bread is a classic strain doesn’t need any exotic flavors or frills to demand your respect.
