This indica-dominant hybrid (20:80 sativa/indica ratio) is fairly potent, with THC levels reaching 20%. As its name suggests, it tastes strongly of blue cheese, giving it a flavour distinct from other Cheese varieties. The aroma is a mix of blue cheese and sweet blueberries. The original Cheese strain, which was first bred in the United Kingdom, was bred with a Blueberry male, resulting in a name and a strain focused on the blue. The same definitely can’t be said of the high, a mix of joy and euphoria with deep-body relaxation. The indica is very apparent in the body high, while the sativa portion keeps the strain lively.
Blue Cheese is a good choice when treating anxiety, depression, or pain, but it also works well on migraines, PTSD, ADHD, and bipolar disorder. Insomniacs can find strong relief in this strain as well. Dry mouth is possible, as are dry eyes. This strain is relatively easy to find in Colorado and the West Coast, less so elsewhere. Cheese and its offspring remain mostly a British phenomenon, but the unique flavor and aroma, coupled with a stress-reducing high perfect for late nights.
Blue Cheese requires a high threshold for dank, earthy flavors – it’s named after the most pungent cheese, after all, though it doesn’t taste as much like its namesake as you might expect. Instead, it has more of a dank, berry flavor. Using it, this 80/20 Indica-heavy hybrid can encourage incredible relaxation. Big Buddha Seeds created the strain from a Cheese strain phenotype straight from the UK crossed with a hybrid male made from Blueberry and Big Buddha Cheese. The high slinks into your consciousness slowly but once it hits, it has a lot of great uses. Keep reading to find out what Blue Cheese is good for (other than salads).
