The best Cheese strain seeds
Cheese weed is a strong cheese-smelling hybrid strain soaked in several types of weed. The autoflowering version of Cheese strains have the ruderalis added which makes the plant grow more easily and bloom automatically.
Generally, Cheese strains are fairly easy to grow and ready for harvest after about 9 weeks. The effect of Cheese weed is relaxing and euphoric, making it a great addition to a quiet evening with friends. Cheese is also often smoked when under stress or in pain.
Characteristics of Cheese strains
- Strong cheese aroma
- Medium to high THC content of approximately 15% - 20%.
- Easy to grow
- Helps against stress and negative thoughts
Origin of the Cheese strain
Cheese weed first appeared during the late 80s and owes its origin to the famous Skunk #1. Skunk #1 was already a strain known for its heavy aroma and fast flowering properties. The legendary grower 'the Skunkman' from California moved to Holland at that time and started experimenting and cloning this weed.
A mix of Skunk and Afghani
Skunk #1 was crossed with Afghani Indica genetics resulting in a stunning weed with a remarkable taste. A brand-new hybrid was created that provided high yields, trichome rich buds, strong and savory cheese flavor with a mellow relaxing high. One condition for a strain to be considered Cheese is that it must contain Skunk genetics (see: Skunk seeds).
The Cheese strain, however, had a problem. The smell of the plant was strong and in many cases too strong. Not a cannabis plant to grow indoors unnoticed. In 1988 that problem was solved when a group of breeders from the UK optimized the plant. This caused the popularity of the Cheese varieties to increase considerably. Worldwide, but especially in the Netherlands and in the UK.
Types of Cheese seeds
Cheese cannabis seeds come in many varieties and flavors. What they have in common is that they all have a cheese-like taste and penetrating aroma. Just like a cheese platter, you will find that one cheese tastes slightly better than the other, just because tastes differ.
Crossing different marijuana strains will result in flavor variations that are, for example, more savory and leave others with a sweet taste (for example the slightly sweet Blue Cheese from a cross with Blueberry seeds).
Furthermore, Cheese weed is known for it's relaxing and euphoric high and are often used to relieve stress or pain. The THC content of all Cheese strains is average and fluctuates around 15% - 20%.

Growing a Cheese strain
Cheese seeds transform into powerful marijuana plants that can grow to a considerable size. They are particularly well suited to SOG (Sea of Green) and SCROG setups but also do very well outdoors. We do recommend pruning the plant at an early stage to bring out its bushy structure.
Easy to grow
Growing Cheese weed is quite simple. Even novice growers can achieve great success with autoflowering varieties such as Blue Cheese and Big Cheese.
Cheese is preferably grown indoors but when placed outdoors it does love a balmy Mediterranean climate with lots of sun and heat. This means that if you want to grow Cheese in Holland you should start your outdoor cultivation somewhere in May. Then the weather conditions are most favorable.
Flowering and yield indoor
The Cheese seeds will be ready for harvest after 9-10 weeks. This Indica strain produces around 400 kg per square meter when grown under optimal indoor conditions.
Since Cheese plants give off a rather pungent smell, especially at the end of the flowering period, investing in a good carbon filter is not a luxury in order to cover up the characteristic smell.
Flowering time and yield outdoor
As with other strains, Cheese tends to yield more in an outdoor environment. Think about 550 kg per square meter. The fact that Cheese is very resistant to common pests and molds makes it an ideal outdoor plant. Keep in mind that when your balcony or garden is next to your neighbors', the smell will not go unnoticed.

Effects of Cheese weed
Cheese is one of the most powerful stress relieving mood elevating weed around. After this, happiness strikes and a laughter fit is not to be excluded when you are with friends.
Cheese enhances moods and can induce a feeling of euphoria. It can also boost creativity. Because Cheese is an Indica dominant strain, you may feel a bit lethargic and tired after a while. It can also happen that the couch becomes your best friend that you don't want to say goodbye to for a while. A real couch-lock!
Cheese can be a bit uncomfortable to smoke in the beginning because it makes your throat tingle. Unpracticed smokers may get into a coughing fit. Dry mouth and itchy eyes are also possible side effects.
The smell of Cheese strains can only be described as extreme. This cannabis strain is not called Cheese for nothing, precisely because of its strong cheddar cheese-like smell. Furthermore, the smell is diluted with some earthy aromas mixed with a little sweetness and spice.
This Indica tastes quite buttery and pleasant, and if you can appreciate the taste of cheese, or even have a preference for it, then you shouldn't hesitate to order these Cheese marijuana seeds. The taste is creamy and sweet while creating the widely known and appreciated Skunk flavor.
