Growing Cheese (indoor and outdoor)

The feminized Cheese seeds are suitable for growers with some experience and an absolute pleasure to grow as well as to smoke. Especially if you like Cheese varieties!

Cheese marijuana strains are very well suited for indoor growing, but also grow well outdoors in a moderate to warm climate. However, you should be aware of the smell that can be quite pungent during flowering. Just like a good stinky cheese. When growing indoors, it is therefore advisable to use a filter.

The stature of the plant is quite bushy despite her 50% Sativa characteristics. Make no mistake, though. She can grow quite tall, especially when grown outdoors in open ground.

To keep her out of sight of nosy neighbors and possible hikers, it may be necessary to keep her somewhat under control while growing and thus limit her height. This can be done by growing her in a pot. Because of her bushy appearance, it is also advisable to prune her in order to promote light penetration.

Flowering time

Cheese will flower for about 53 to 59 days.

Plant height

The Cheese plant can become quite large. Especially when given the space, light and nutrition. 

  • Indoor height 70 to 100 cm
  • Outdoor height 100 to 140 cm

Cheese yield

In order to optimize your yield and get the most out of your plant, it is advisable to use SCROG. Also, SOG can be used without any problems due to its high resistance to mold.

  • Maximum yield indoors: 400 to 500 grams/m²
  • Maximum yield outdoors: 525 to 600 grams/m²

The yield of Cheese is generally abundant and of high quality, with THC levels usually between 16% - 17%.


The effect of Cheese is very pleasant. The effect is gentle and powerful. A feeling of complete relaxation accompanies the stimulation of the brain. Perfect to relax with! However, take it easy if you're not a regular smoker. Indeed, too high doses can lead to couch-lock.

Smell and taste

Combining the flavors and aromas is a unique experience that you definitely don't want to miss, but perhaps a weed that tastes like cheese sounds and smells anything but appealing.

While the name may be daunting to some, we can guarantee you one thing. Cheese has a delicious flavor.

From the first puff, Cheese offers an incomparable taste of good cheese that provides an incredible sense of satiety. Consumers will smell incense aromas after a while, which will undoubtedly appeal to them if they are sensitive to it.

You'll experience mostly a spicy and savory flavor with fruity undertones. Combined with the aromas, the experience is exactly what you would expect from a good cheese. A good cheese smells terrible but has a wonderful taste.


The original Cheese weed first surfaced in the late 1980s and has become incredibly popular, in part due to its parentage of Skunk #1. In fact, back then, Skunk #1 was already a strain known for its heavy aroma and short flowering phase.

To develop Cheese, growers crossed Skunk #1 with the Afghani. The results were amazing. A brand-new hybrid with high yields, trichome-rich buds, delicious cheese aromas, slightly tart and a mellow relaxing high. The Cheese became a hit almost immediately.

Cheese strains, however, had a problem. The smell of the plant was strong and in many cases too pungent. In 1988, a group of well-known growers from the UK optimized the plant, which significantly increased the popularity of Cheese strains. Worldwide, but especially in the Netherlands and England.

Brogan (Verified customer) 2021-09-22

Very bushy plant that grows many colas of medium size. I also made a cool bonsai with all of the vigorous branching. Very cool plant and it tastes great too. Will grow again under scrog and see how that works.

Vincent (Weedseedsexpress) replied on 2021-09-23

Hi Brogan, Good luck with your growth! Cheers, Vincent

Mark Anderson (Verified customer) 2021-06-26

Was just reading some bad reviews. This has been a fantastic company for me to deal with. I didn't receive an order once and they refunded my payment so I could choose what ever strain I wanted again. Now I spend the money on express shipping and receive them normally within 2 weeks. Cheese does smell a lot due to the skunk, so beware of the odour if you grow indoors and don't use a charcoal filter. If you are having trouble at all growing or are new to growing, AK47, and white widow are a bit forgiving. My son has trouble so that's what I give him. Their has not been a strain from WSE I have been disappointed with. Also great people to deal with.

Hi Mark, Thanks for the review! Nice to hear that you like our company and the way we're working, We always try to keep the customer as happy and satisfied as possible. Also, really nice that give some tips and tricks for people that are new to growing! Cheers, Jorrit

Pieter (Verified customer) 2020-11-29

I just read a bit of a negative review which doesn't make sense to me. I'm still waiting for my seeds and this is the 3rd time that they're sending me a new lot. I believe that they do their very best to keep you happy as a customer. They go above and beyond to make it work. Of course time is a precious thing and you can't control what happens at the freight company but I believe that they give you the option of staying on board and be patient or a refund. If you don't have the patience you'll miss out on some super funky strains I haven't seen anywhere else. Hopefully, and I've got all the faith in it, it will all work out and I'll receive my order. Happy growing!

Dylan (Verified customer) 2020-06-15

Im very happy with cheese so far being my first ever grow I made all the mistakes and I'm sure i still am but my plants have continued to thrive no matter what. Germination was great all had tail by 2nd night and went into coco/perlite and 2 months on there eager for flower all leaves are vibrant and green plants are waist height and you can't see through them i have 8 in a 4m×2 tent and it's filling up

jJack (Verified customer) 2020-03-09

shipping took extremely long and customers service kept stalling me to wait. I eventually got them and seeds are good, but don't use the corona as an excuse for slow delivery. Come on....

goodremallouise45 (Verified customer) 2019-10-17

I received my order Cheese today, got 2 extra seeds, very happy with customers service and shipping, will review again after I have a germination rate Thanx for everything guys 👌

Trevor (Verified customer) 2019-09-01

A really nice strain, really smelly though! Germination rate is fine, plants grows like a mf, I think I got enough for the upcoming year also :P Thanks the express for making a great effort for me, for my country and for the world. So many banks around but this is the one for me!

AA (Verified customer) 2019-03-22

Smoked Cheese a lot while this is one of the most popular strains in the UK but never grew it myself. Yet growing was pretty easy and with the pretty short flowering time the results came early. Love it! Germination rate was about 8-10 and received two replacement seeds in my order from last week so a huge thanks to you guys!

cupcakes420 (Verified customer) 2019-02-06

I got 10 seeds a season ago from weedseedsexpress. Every single seeds germinated but never grew taller than about 50 cm indoors, the yield was perfect though, with 400 grams per plant/seed. I need more light the next time I think. This weedexpress guys have the best cheese strain if you ask me, an awesome smoke, for after work, when the sun has gone down. Wiejoeeh!

Mogly420 (Verified customer) 2019-01-03

I love the smell of cheese in the morning! Cheese is a strong smelling strain with a fine taste which tickles my throat. I grew the cheese several times now, the genetics of the cheese seeds by weedseedexpress are great, just like the Sexpot and black domina seeds which I bought here. Keep up the good work! Thanks and cheers!

Nancy O. (Verified customer) 2018-09-12

Jann Graams (Verified customer) 2018-03-01
