Cheese Strain

Whatever the Cheese weed strain lacks in stunning appearances, it more than makes up for in ease of growth, effects, and distinctive aroma and flavor that will have cheddarheads clamoring for more. To find out more about this sophisticated OG of an indica-dominant strain that’s been around since the 1980s, keep on reading!

What are the effects of the Cheese strain?

  • Relaxed
  • Happy
  • Euphoric
  • Uplifted

The Cheese weed strain, which contains an indica-to-sativa ratio of 80:20 and THC content of 17%, is a classic indica that was allegedly created when a phenotype of Skunk No. 1 was crossed with Afghani back when you couldn’t skip through commercials on the TV set.

Thanks to its unique sour cheese aroma and flavor and its simultaneously soothing and uplifting effects, Cheese has long dominated the scene as one of the most popular strains around.

While many indica strains tend to creep up on users, Cheese’s physical and cerebral effects are said to hit hard and fast with a welcome burst of happiness that serves to boost the mood and put one in such high spirits that you just might find yourself doubled over in belly-aching laughter for reasons you can’t explain.

Followed by this rush of levity and elation is a wash of euphoria and some incredibly relaxing effects that may end up leaving you locked to your couch and eventually dozing off with a big smile of contentment on your face.

All of these fabulously potent effects combined have garnered the Cheese weed strain quite a solid reputation for being a crowd-favorite strain to chill out with.

One last thing to note is that Cheese tends to induce something of an appetite in users, so you just might want to have some snacks, like even some bits of cheese, nearby as you may not feel like making the trek to your kitchen once the munchies hit.

What are the therapeutic benefits of the Cheese cannabis strain?

The uplifting and soothing cerebral and body effects that the Cheese weed strain has to offer recreational users may also be quite useful to medical marijuana patients who are seeking a possible alternative form of relief for mental and physical ailments.

As a bliss- and happiness-inducing indica, Cheese has the potential to help patients experience some relief from chronic stress, feelings of anxiousness and despair, nervousness, and other mood-related disorders.

In terms of this iconic strain’s analgesic properties, medical users claim Cheese potentially helps ease, soothe, and manage chronic pain, migraines, inflammation, and arthritis, as well as nausea and loss of appetite–the latter two of which may be especially beneficial to those undergoing chemotherapy.

Of course, all of Cheese’s therapeutic benefits are anecdotal and one should never self-diagnose or self-prescribe any health issue without first going to their physician and/or therapist.

What are the adverse effects of the Cheese strain?

Overall, one of the biggest “complaints” about using Cheese is that when combusting this indica, its smoke can be a bit harsh and cause some coughing and an itchy throat.

The other two most commonly reported side effects of using this famous strain are the typical ones of cottonmouth and dry eyes–both of which are easily remedied by drinking plenty of water and using eye drops, respectively.

On rare occasions, especially when used in higher doses, some users have said they’ve experienced things like a mild headache, slight dizziness, or an uptick in their sense of paranoia. However, not only are these adverse effects few and far between, but they tend to only happen when a user chooses to overindulge in this unusually flavorful strain.

What are Cheese’s fragrance and flavor profiles?

What is Cheese’s terpene profile?

Terpenes, which occur naturally in cannabis, as well as other types of plants, flowers, herbs, fruits, etc., are what give them their flavors and fragrances, as well as their potential healing properties. For example, lavender is rich in the terpene linalool, which is known to have calming effects, and is consistently used in aromatherapy and other traditional healing modalities.

In the case of Cheese, its most abundant terpene is that of earthy myrcene, and then pinene and caryophyllene.

The smell and taste of the Cheese strain

Cheese is infamous for its uniquely cheesy-sour aroma and savoury flavor.

Cheese’s pungent aroma profile, which is anything but discreet, is dominated by a distinct aroma of cheddar cheese, with notes of earthiness, muskiness, and sweet herbaceousness. In fact, for those who don’t wish to announce to those passing by that they’re using or growing Cheese, remember that this strain produces some incredibly aromatic plants.

As for Cheese’s taste, it provides users with a creamy and savoury flavor of buttery cheese with notes of skunk that will linger in your mouth long after your last exhale.

How do I grow Cheese feminized seeds?

As a strain that is naturally resistant to common molds, pests, and diseases Cheese can be easily cultivated by cannabis growers of pretty much all skill levels from novice growers to the most experienced growers. In addition, thanks to the fact that Growers Choice Seeds only sells feminized seeds, both indoor and outdoor growers have a 99% likelihood of ending up with all-female, bud-producing plants, which means they won’t have to waste time, money, or resources on weeding out male plants that will end up pollinating the female plants and turning their buds to seed.

While Cheese does tend to prefer being cultivated indoors, outdoor growers should be able to easily find success with this strain if they’re able to cultivate it in a setting that has Mediterranean-like conditions that are abundant in warmth and sunshine.

As for indoor growers, know that Cheese will respond well to the Screen of Green method, which serves to increase its growth potential. In addition, because the branches of this indica tend to grow in on themselves, you would do best to trellis their stalks.

One other cultivation tip for both outdoor and indoor growers is to trim its lower-growing branches so that nutritional and light resources go to supporting the upper branches and the production of high-quality buds.

What do Cheese cannabis plants look like?

As mentioned near the start, when it comes to looks, Cheese’s tall, spindly plants and bright green nuggets aren’t going to be walking any fashion runways anytime soon.

This is to say that its buds, which are interspersed with flimsy and straggly orange pistils, aren’t anything exciting to look at. In fact, some have described their look as rather “dull and boring.”

Fortunately, just as with people, looks don’t determine quality, and when it comes to quality, then Cheese is a supermodel.

When to harvest your Cheese plants

Not only is Cheese an easy strain to grow, but it also produces pretty impressive yields–especially when cultivated outside.

However, this is not to say that indoor cultivators are going to be disappointed about reaping approximately 400 grams per square meter after this indica-dominant strain completes its flowering stage in about 9-10 weeks.

When grown outdoors, Cheese should be ready to harvest sometime around the middle of October and should provide cultivators with a generous yield of almost 600 grams per plant!
