Cheese is an 80% Indica dominant strain that hits hard and fast with a strong cerebral burst which runs counter to its Indica dominance. Euphoria and bliss will run through the brains of users swiftly upon ingestion and it is initially a creative and energizing strain. However, all of these effects are short lived as the Indica body stone kicks in and brings the user into a state of calm relaxation. The THC content of this range is moderate, between 16-20%, and it is a powerful strain yet not completely overwhelming. Cheese is a good social, recreational and medical strain which all smokers can enjoy. It is well balanced even if it is a little heavy. Couch lock, munchies and relaxation are the dominant features of this strain. It is not a functional strain and is more likely to send users to sleep, leaving foggy but happy heads in its wake. However, the strain retains the mood-elevating qualities of a Sativa and is often used by people dealing with stress and anxiety disorders. Cheese is a classic strain with an odor that turns many potential smokers away. It dates back to the eighties and descends from a Skunk #1 phenotype. Cheese is currently bred by Big Buddha Seeds, among others. There are a number of varieties of Cheese on the market at present but all are Indica dominant with the typical Cheese and Diesel odor. It is the perfect recreational strain to relax and chillout, listening to music or watch a movie. This is because it brings smokers into a relaxed and happy state while leaving them active and functional, though certainly couch locked. Cheese is an easy strain to grow with a short flowering time and a moderate yield. It is available in dispensaries across the West Coast and can easily be obtain on the recreational market. Cultivators are warned that it is a smelly strain and odor control measures are definitely needed
