A flagship strain bred by the Mendocino, California-based Gage Green Genetics, Mendo Breath (F2) is an indica-leaning cross between OG Kush Breath (OGKB), a descendant of Cherry Pie Kush, and the breeder’s own Mendo Montage. The original version of the strain, named Mendo Breath F1, was a clone-only variety used for several breeding projects, followed with the more readily accessible Mendo Breath F2, which was made available in the form of feminized seeds.
This second variety of the cultivar gives off delectable notes of vanilla, caramel, chocolate mint, and fresh berries. Commonly referred to as “true Mendocino meditation herb,” Gage Green Genetics claims that Mendo Breath F2 produces a meditative and trancelike effect.

The addition of Mendo Montage bolsters the vegetative growth and number of nodes that stem from OGKB. With a flowering time ranging from eight to ten weeks indoors, this strain produces medium to high yields. A small percentage of phenotypes will produce purple traits.
The geneticist has also created the Mendo Breath F3 strain, which is also a cross between OGKB and Mendo Montage. This variation is said to have vigorous growth characteristics and rock-hard calyx formations. With aromas of citrus, grapes, and pine, Gage Green Genetics states that Mendo Breath F3 will bring both “potency and relief” to those who use it.
