The origins of Nutter Budder trace back to Humboldt Seed Company’s crossing of Peanut Butter Breath with a mystery strain known only as C435, and this balanced hybrid has become widely known among users for its anxiety relieving and sedative properties.
Grown in a former Coalinga prison, the California brand Evidence has brought this savory taste to life with small, budget-friendly buds that are just as likely to leave your tongue stuck to the roof of your mouth as the flavor’s name would imply.
Started by parent company Ocean Grown Extracts, Evidence was founded on an important mission statement: “We grow weed at a prison to help get people out of prison for smoking weed”. To back up that claim they donate one dollar from every bag sold to the Last Prisoner Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to cannabis criminal justice reform.
At only around $10 for an eighth of quality greenhouse-grown cannabis, this brand is obviously doing the best they can to offer up an easy escape. We’re curious how it stacks up to Hightide’s Sherblato or the tasty Cherry Do-si-Do from Yada Yada that we just reviewed.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a humidity disc inside the bag, which is always a nice addition. I can count on two fingers the number of bags I’ve bought in the last few months that have actually contained any sort of freshness packet or humidity shield. Two. The number is literally two. Anyway, being in the rare minority, this flower did indeed smell pretty fresh. There was a heavy nutty edge to the scent on first intake, backed up by earthy pine and mildly sweet mint tones, all dusted in a gassy crunch. It didn’t have an especially overpowering or exotic smell, but instead carried a hearty, herbal richness to its bite that was ultimately more spice than skunk.
The bag itself was black with white writing and very little in terms of design. The buds were small, spike-edged, fairly firm and tight with a light dusting of powder when broken open. There wasn’t much visual crystallization on the outside, but they did have nice dark green and golden tones with mild hints of purple, as well as a healthy amount of orange hairs running throughout.
I got a surprising amount of minty-ness on the first inhale, but it was quickly overtaken by the namesake nutty and creamy flavors, eventually followed up by a healthy dose of gas and a tiny bit of eucalyptus. The levels balance well, combining to form a pretty straightforward yet enticingly hearty and complete flavor profile overall.
My bag was part of batch number EVI-054-2 with a packaged date of February 14, 2022. Listed with 25.7% THC and sold for around $10 for 3.5 grams, I felt this was one of those fortuitous times when the quality contained inside the bag seemed to outweigh its low price point. I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly this bud calmed me down and melted the stress away. There were parallel levels of head and body high, which kept me hovering for quite a while, making this seem like a good choice for reading before bedtime or just having a long conversation on the couch with whoever brought the jelly. I would score this flower the same as something like Alien Labs Area 41 strain which is definitely a compliment because this was around half the price.
