Motorbreath No. 15 has received much acclaim for its pungent aroma, powerful effects, and generous yield.

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, the other parent of Cookie Breath, is an exceptional cultivar that has become popular around the world due to its unique flavor and potent effects. Animal Cookies was created in San Francisco during the 2010s by a prominent group of breeders known as the Cookies Family. The Cookies Family is well-known in the cannabis industry for producing many top-tier strains, including Pink Panties, Gelato 41, and Girl Scout Cookies.
Animal Cookies is a potent hybrid of Girl Scout Cookies and Fire OG, producing a bigger yield and stronger branches than are typical of most Cookies varieties. Many users have reported that Animal Cookies delivers an extremely narcotic stone that may numb the body and boost the mood. Given its delectable flavor and powerful high, Animal Cookies is a popular choice among many growers, breeders, and users.
Animal Cookies Lineage
Animal Cookies, the other parent of Cookie Breath, is a hybrid of two powerful Indica-dominant strains—Girl Scout Cookies and Fire OG. Girl Scout Cookies, the parent of Animal Cookies, has an unclear pedigree. The Cookies Family has stated that it is a cross of Florida OG and a mysterious cultivar known as F1 Durban. This strain likely hails from Durban Poison—a popular Sativa landrace variety.
Fire OG’s ancestry is also somewhat unclear. Some growers suggest that Fire OG is the authentic phenotype of OG Kush that was created in Florida during the 1990s, but others believe it may be the offspring of the original cut. Animal Cookies offers the striking color and scrumptious flavor of Girl Scout Cookies and the potency and vigor of Fire OG.

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.
Cookie Breath Aroma

Cookie Breath Effects

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.
Animal Cookies, on the other hand, is a delicate strain that is challenging to grow. In order to flourish, this cultivar requires a comprehensive diet, abundant lighting, and a moderate climate with low humidity.
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 if grown in humid conditions. To avoid bud rot, growers should regularly prune the plants, keep the humidity low in the grow room, and offer lots of lighting and air circulation.
Both Motorbreath No. 15 and Animal Cookies are known to require lots of calcium and magnesium. Cookie Breath also needs more calcium and magnesium than the average strain. To prevent calcium and magnesium deficiencies, growers can feed the plants with a cal-mag supplement or amend the growing medium with dry amendments such as gypsum and lime. Growers should always use a pH meter to test their nutrients solutions before feeding the plants. Feeding the plants with a consistent pH will allow them to absorb the correct type and amount of nutrients.
Harvesting & Curing Cookie Breath
Most phenotypes of Cookie Breath will be ready for harvest in 10 weeks; however, some plants may take as long as 11 weeks to reach maturity. The trichomes are the best indicator to determine if the plants are ready for harvest. If the trichomes are transparent, the plants have not fully ripened. Once they turn white and amber, growers know that the plants have fully matured.
If Cookie Breath is harvested when the trichomes are still clear, this strain typically delivers an uplifting head high. If it is harvested after the trichomes have turned amber, Cookie Breath may provide a more narcotic effect. By waiting until the plants have fully ripened, growers can secure a sizeable yield of incredibly potent buds.
It is recommended to stop using fertilizers in the last two weeks of flowering, and flush the plants with filtered water. This may improve the overall quality of the buds by breaking down any remaining fertilizers in the flowers.
After one or two weeks of flushing, the plants can be harvested. Start by cutting down the top colas and removing the fan leaves from each branch. Use a sharp pair of trimming shears to remove the small sugar leaves around the flowers.
After manicuring the buds, hang up the branches to dry for three to six days. It may take longer to dry Cookie Breath buds, given their compactness and resin coverage. You will know that the buds are dry when the stems snap instead of bend.
After drying the buds, the final step is to let them cure. Curing helps protect the trichomes and preserve the aroma, fragrance, and potency of the flowers. To cure the buds, remove them from the branches and place them in air-tight glass jars. Keep the jars in a dark place that is cool and dry. Open up the jars once or twice a day to accelerate the curing process and prevent mold from growing on the flowers. After three to six weeks of curing, the buds are ready to be enjoyed.
