Cheese marijuana: history and characteristics of this unique strain
If you’re looking for a timeless cannabis strain, we higly suggest trying some good Cheese, one of the most famous coming from England.
Born in the late 80s, it’s still popular thanks to its intense smell and characteristic strong effect.
Here’s all the information that a real Cheese enthusiast should know.
As you can imagine, Cheese’s aroma is one the most unique on the market: heavy, sour and acid, that’s why it recalls cheese.
This strain (which is an hybrid, 50% indica and 50% sativa) isn’t amazing just for its scent. We’re talking about a very productive seed, that gives birth to huge and compact buds, with lots of resin and THC up to 17%. Also, it can endure quite low temperatures.
Cheese’s effect is rapid and intense: relax comes fast and lasts a lot. This strain is famous for its calming, as well as exciting, effects. It’s often used by athletes after great physical effort, or as a non-conventional painkiller, because of its muscular relaxing power,
Cheese’s origins and derived hybrids
England, late 80’s… A grower from the south-east has a couple of super unique Skunk #1 seeds…
Later on, scientists will find out that those seeds underwent a spontaneous mutation that turned them into the first instances of one of the most famous cannabis strain of the whole world.
The californian Skunk #1 was hybridated by the famous Sam The Skunkman. After the success gained with that genetic line, Sam decided to move the the Netherlands to perfect his studies without having legal issues.
Main problem of Skunk #1 was the plants’ smell, so intense that it would attract the cops’ attention.
While he was trying to mitigate that dangerous scent, Sam tried several genetic interweaving, and some of them arrived in England, where an incredulous grower ended up cultivating the very first Cheese, born from a Skunk #1 variant, whose huge buds had an intense scent similar to the smell of cheese.
During the mid 90s, this strain got the attention of Exodus, the London alternative community, which introduced it in raves and renamed it Exodus Cheese.
From this legendary Cannabis, many more variants and hybrids came to life and became popular all around Europe and the USA, such as Big Buddha Cheese, predominantly Indica, or Swiss Cheese, with high THC concentration but also a great relaxing effect, that converted it in one of the most appreciated therapeutical strains.
So, as you can imagine, the only “con” of cannabis Cheese is that… After having a good time with it, that strong cheese scent won’t leave you that easily… But it’s all worth it!
