About Cheese

History & Genetics

Cheese is a famous strain that originated in the United Kingdom. The strain is a rare female phenotype of Skunk #1 a cross between Afghani (indica), Acapulco Gold (sativa), and Columbian Gold (sativa). It first appeared between 1988 and 1989 and was quickly cloned and passed on. As a female phenotype, the original strain is only available as a clone, but other breeders have imitated it in seed form by crossing a female Cheese with other indica strains.

Effects

Despite being indica-dominant, the strain is said to hit hard and fast. Users' first experience of increased happiness and waves of euphoria is followed by a powerful body-numbing high that leads to increased appetite. A few users report feeling more creative than lazy or tired, but the sedating indica effect is likely to be the most powerful, resulting in a couch-lock. Side effects include cottonmouth, giggles, and bloodshot eyes.

The strain retains the mood-elevating qualities of a sativa and is often used by people dealing with stress and anxiety. The heavy body melt provides relief from chronic aches and pains. Many find it useful for the treatment of insomnia. Cheese is also often used by people who need to increase their appetite.

Growing

Growers created this strain with the intention of high yields (14 ounces per plant) and increased trichome production. This is one strain that we would recommend for beginners that are just getting started. With little effort, your plants will flourish and produce ample, thick buds. Cheese can grow outdoors, but it's easier to maintain if you keep them inside. Count on your plants to flower within 9-10 weeks. 

Although this strain may be great for novice growers, it'll hit you like a punch if you're a novice consumer. Smoke with caution as this strain can lead to paranoia if your tolerance is not built. If you are looking for a strain that'll increase your appetite, Cheese can definitely assist you there. Munchies come on quickly after a few rips. Overall this indica-dominant, knockout strain will slip you into a relaxed state and make your worries drift away.
