Lamb’s Bread is an uplifting, wide awake strain that was a favorite by the one and only, Bob Marley himself. Jamaica’s most famous strain brought to you by Yardie Seeds, is constantly under speculation as to how it got its name and who was the first to bring these feminized seeds to life.
Lamb’s Bread is a sativa dominant strain with a 5:95 indica/sativa ratio. The strain has a Jamaican heritage and was loved by the legend Bob Marley. With 16-21% of THC content, a hit or two is more than enough to keep you medicated for hours. The strain is also popularly known as Lamb’s Breathe and has a cheese and grass aroma to go along with it. As for the taste, it is more or less the same. The buds are golden green in color with red hairs with hints of lime green inside. After smoking Lamb’s Bread, you will immediately notice its uplifting effects. You will feel happy and euphoric all the while feeling incredibly creative at the same time. Due to it being a sativa dominant strain, its effects are cerebral.

Medically speaking, this strain has a myriad of uses. Because of its uplifting properties, this strain is great for mental health issues such as depression, stress, bipolar, and mild anxiety.

The stimulation provided can also increase appetite, digestion, and energy, which is beneficial for those with fatigue.
In Kingston, Jamaica ganja is a way of life, Bob Marley is king, and having a good time is the word of God.

Let it open your mind and put you at ease. Don’t be surprised if you tend to reach for this one as your go-to from here on out.
Slight Confusion Between Lambsbread & Lambsbreath Strains
Just as there is a Lambsbread marijuana strain circulating around over the past few decades, there is also a strain by the name of Lamb’s Breath that is very similar in both effects (Sativa) and origin. Because there are different phenotypes of cannabis strains, it would make sense that there are various popular versions of the Lambs Bread strain.
Once a phenotype takes on favorable characteristics, many growers will focus on developing that strain’s unique characteristics that will eventually set it apart from the rest and allow it to become a popular strain. After all, uniqueness is what the patients want in todays medical marijuana marketplace.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Home grower’s take:
“For all the hype that Jamaica gets for its buds, I’ve never been impressed by the genetics coming out of there, especially the shit that’s grown in Amsterdam. I’ve always been fine with Lamb’s Bread, though. Solid sativa you could smoke all day without getting too stoned. Quick yielder, too — no more than seven, eight weeks tops in bloom. They like to stretch, too, so don’t be scared once they start getting taller. Lamb’s Bread will never be as popular as it was ten, twenty years ago, but maybe it’ll make a comeback when people are less obsessed with killer potency and intense effects.”
Medical Benefits of Lamb’s Bread Cannabis
Medically speaking, Lamb’s Bread is a real gift from the heavens up above, often being termed “the ultimate mood strain”. This is in particular because, this cannabis is capable of bringing contentment and peace to those struggling with depression, anxiety, chronic stress, PTSD, ADD/ADHD and other mood disorders. With this marijuana, it is best to start off slowly, increasing your dose as you understand how LB affects you.
This is because those diagnosed or predispositioned for a mood disorder or other mental condition are especially susceptible to a THC induced increase in anxiety, paranoia and worrying. It is best to be on the safe side, starting out mellow and building from there.
Some physical conditions as well can obtain relief with the assistance of Lamb’s Bread; predominantly chronic pain, migraines/headaches, glaucoma, muscles spasms, back pain and lack of appetite.
Lamb’s Breath is widely recommended by medical marijuana doctors all around the globe, often being referred to patients as a cure all cannabis strain, particularly for conditions involving the mind.
