Blue Cheese is a loved classic that is 80% Indica dominant with a pleasant taste and smell. The name Blue Cheese derives from the genetic lineage of the strain, as opposed to the actual smell and taste, which has a notable absence of cheese. Instead it is a mix of fruit and herbs. It is a cross between Blueberry and UK Cheese (a Skunk #1 phenotype) with a moderate THC content ranging from 16-20%. This is an enormously popular strain of marijuana which delivers a powerful stone that will not send users to sleep, and has a good balance between Indica and Sativa qualities. It is commonly available in medical dispensaries across the world as well as on the legal and grey markets. To add to the appeal of Blue Cheese it is an easy plant to grow with a short flowering time and high yields, making it a perfect strain for both users, cultivators and distributors. Unfortunately, because of its overwhelming popularity, there are many different types available. Breeder Big Buddha Seeds, who perfected a phenotype of parent strain Cheese, is credited with introducing one variety of Blue Cheese to the cannabis market. The Netherlands-based operations Barney’s Farm and Royal Queen Seeds also produce and sell seeds for a distinct Blue Cheese variety. This review is of the strain produced from Royal Queen Seeds, though many of the varieties contain similar characteristics. Blue Cheese is a creeper, so the effects take a while to kick in. It is a strain with many uses, effective for recreational, social, and medical use. It has an amazing flavor and smell which entices customers from the minute they smell the bag. On the downside, it can make users choke on the exhale, being something of a harsh smoke, but other than this it is a brilliant strain with a flexible number of uses.

Blue Cheese is a common strain of medical marijuana with a large number of applications. It has been recommended for insomnia, PTSD, depression and anxiety, as well as moderate pain.

It has also been used to treat ADHD and ADD as it enhances focus and clarity, showing the medical community that it truly is a versatile and effective form of medical marijuana. It can also be a strong appetite stimulant. Blue Cheese is best used in the evening as it is primarily an Indica.
