Cookie Breath Strain
Motorbreath No. 15
The story of Motorbreath No. 15 starts with Chemdawg, one of the most flavorful and potent varieties of all time. In 1991, a young grower known as Chemdog traveled from his home in Massachusetts to attend a Grateful Dead concert in Indiana. At the show, Chemdog purchased an ounce of cannabis from two fellow growers known as P-Bud and Joe Brand. The growers referred to the strain as Dog Bud, stating that it was so potent that it caused users to “roll over like a dog.”
Chemdog exchanged phone numbers with P-Bud and Joe Brand and, after returning to Massachusetts, asked them to send him more of the Dog Bud.
When Chemdog received the package, he was delighted to find 13 seeds in the DogBud. That same year, he germinated a few of the seeds and discovered two of the finest phenotypes in cannabis history: Chem ’91 and Chem Sis.
In 2001, Chemdog germinated three more of the seeds, and labeled them “Chem C,” “Chem D,” and “Chem E.” The Chem D was the favorite, offering a large yield of potent, frosty buds that reeked of gasoline, skunk, and citrus. This variety soon became a staple among growers, breeders, and users.
Sometime later, Jimmy Nitz of Pisces Genetics acquired a cutting of Chem D, and crossed it with the classic San Fernando Valley OG. He named this hybrid “Motorbreath” in recognition of its pungent diesel-fuel aroma. Jimmy grew out many seeds of Motorbreath, keeping only 20 of his favorite plants. Of the 20 plants, the one labeled “Motorbreath No. 15” was the best. This phenotype produced a large yield of buds that were potent, frosty, and highly aromatic.
Motorbreath went on to win several awards, and became a popular variety among growers and users. Today, Jimmy’s Motorbreath No. 15 is highly sought after among breeders.
Motorbreath No. 15 Lineage
Motorbreath No. 15, the mother of Cookie Breath, is a hybrid of Chem D and SFV OG. Although Chem D is a highly popular strain, its lineage is unknown. Due to its skunky and earthy aroma, some growers believe that Chem D may be a hybrid of Skunk No. 1. Others have suggested that it may be a cross of Pakistani Kush and Lemon Thai. The lineage of SFV OG also is a mystery. Some growers believe it to be an original phenotype of OG Kush, while others suggest it may be an S1 of OG.
Animal Cookies, also known as Animal Crackers, is the other parent of Cookie Breath. Animal Cookies is a rare, clone-only cultivar that was created by the Cookies Family of San Francisco. The Cookies Family, one of the most esteemed groups of breeders in the cannabis industry, has created many well-known cultivars such as Gelato 33 and Girl Scout Cookies.
Animal Cookies is a potent hybrid of Girl Scout Cookies and Fire OG, producing a larger yield and stronger branches than are typical of most Cookies varieties. Users report that Animal Cookies delivers a powerfully narcotic stone that may numb the body and boost the mood. Its potent effects and exotic flavor have made Animal Cookies a favorite among growers, breeders, and users.
Animal Cookies Lineage
Animal Cookies, the other parent of Cookie Breath, is a hybrid of Girl Scout Cookies and Fire OG. The lineage of Girl Scout Cookies is unclear, but the Cookies Family has stated that it is a three-way cross of Durban Poison, Florida OG, and an unknown strain referred to as “F1.”
The pedigree of Fire OG also is unclear. Some growers suggest that Fire OG is an original phenotype of OG Kush, while others maintain that it is an S1 or hybrid of OG. Animal Cookies offers the unique color and flavor of Girl Scout Cookies and the potency and yield of Fire OG.
Cookie Breath Feminized Cannabis Seeds
Greenpoint Seeds used the legendary, clone-only cut of Animal Cookies to pollinate Jimmy Nitz’s prized Motorbreath No. 15. The resulting hybrid—Cookie Breath—produces an assortment of connoisseur-grade phenotypes that share the exceptional qualities of Chem, OG, and Cookies. Some plants may offer the large yield and funky flavor of Motorbreath No. 15, and others may provide the narcotic stone and outstanding bag appeal of Animal Cookies. Most plants will present a combination of these qualities.

Growing Cookie Breath
Motorbreath No. 15 is a beginner-friendly strain that is resilient to most pests, diseases, and environmental stressors. This cultivar is highly adaptable and can flourish in both indoor and outdoor environments. It is also amenable to a variety of cultivation methods. When grown outdoors, Motorbreath No. 15 prefers a temperate climate, with moderate humidity.
In contrast, Animal Cookies is notoriously challenging to grow and is sensitive to many environmental stressors. To produce a modest yield, this variety requires adequate nutrition, ample lighting, a stable pH, and a moderate climate.
Cookie Breath is a moderately easy strain to cultivate and is resistant to most pests, diseases, and environmental stressors; however, some Animal Cookies-dominant phenotypes may be more sensitive to fluctuations in pH, temperature, humidity, and other conditions. Cookie Breath can be grown both indoors and outdoors if given a warm and dry climate.
Pest & Disease Control
Chem, Cookies, and OG strains are known to be susceptible to powdery mildew. Like its ancestors, Cookie Breath may be prone to powdery-mildew infections. Growers can avoid powdery-mildew infections by gently pruning the plants, using fans to provide ample air circulation, and lowering the humidity in the grow room. Foliar sprays such as water and sodium bicarbonate solutions will help limit the spread of powdery mildew.
Given the extreme density and frost of the buds, some phenotypes of Cookie Breath may be prone to bud rot. Growers can prevent bud rot by pruning the plants, providing ventilation, and keeping the humidity level low (below 50 percent) during the flowering period.
Both Motorbreath No. 15 and Animal Cookies require an ample supply of calcium and magnesium. Cookie Breath also thrives on a diet rich in calcium and magnesium. Growers can prevent calcium and magnesium deficiencies by including a cal-mag supplement in the nutrient schedule or amending the growing medium with dolomite lime and Epsom salt. Experienced growers normally use a pH meter when mixing nutrient solutions. This helps ensure that the plants receive a consistent pH and can absorb the optimum amount of nutrients.
Harvesting & Curing Cookie Breath
Most phenotypes of Cookie Breath reach maturity in 10 weeks; however, some plants may take up to 11 weeks to fully ripen. Growers can determine if the plants are mature by using a microscope or jeweler’s loupe to observe the trichomes on the buds. When the trichomes turn milky white, with some starting to turn amber, the plants are fully mature and ready to be harvested.
If Cookie Breath is harvested when the trichomes are still transparent, it may produce a more uplifting and cerebral high. If it is harvested when the trichomes are mostly amber, the effects may be more narcotic and sedating. Harvesting the plants when they are fully mature will help ensure a generous yield of potent buds.
One to two weeks before harvest, growers typically stop feeding the plants with nutrient solutions and flush them with plain, distilled water. This process may help to remove excess fertilizer from the flowers and enhance their flavor, aroma, and overall quality.
To harvest the plants, growers remove the ripest colas first. They remove the large fan leaves from the branches, then manicure the buds by trimming away the small sugar leaves that surround the flowers. Manicuring the buds will improve their appearance and make them smoother and more flavorful when smoked.
After the flowers have been trimmed, the branches can be hung by a node or placed on a drying rack for three to six days. It may take longer to dry Cookie Breath buds, given their extreme frost and density. The buds are dry when the branches snap rather than bend.
Once the flowers have been dried, they are ready to be cured. Curing helps preserve the aroma, flavor, and potency of the flowers. To cure the buds, growers usually remove the flowers from the branches, store them in sealable glass jars, and keep them in a cool, dry, and dark place. They open, or “burp,” the jars twice a day for three days. This prevents excess moisture from accumulating in the flowers. After three days, growers burp the jars once a day for the next two weeks. The buds may be smoked after two weeks; however, it may take four to eight weeks to cure them properly.
