Cheese is said to descend from a Skunk #1 phenotype whose pungent aroma made it stand out. Breeders like Big Buddha Seeds later introduced Afghani indica genetics to increase Cheese’s trichome production and yields. The resulting hybrid is now well-known for its relaxed, happy effects that gently ease you into a blissful state of mind.
Cheese reportedly tastes and smells like strong cheddar. 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 cotton mouth and bloodshot eyes. Some users report paranoia, dizziness, and increased anxiety.
The strain retains the mood-elevating qualities of a Sativa and is often used by people dealing with stress and anxiety disorders. The heavy body melt provides relief from chronic aches and pains. Many find it useful for treatment of insomnia. Cheese is also often used by people who need to increase appetite.
