Blue Cheese Strain History
Blue Cheese strain is a 80/20 indica dominant hybrid packed with THC and an incredible cheesy aroma. A great mood enhancer and incredibly potent, Blue Cheese is popular in the United States and Europe. DJ Short’s beloved Blueberry strain combined with UK Cheese brings all sorts of interesting flavors to the table. In the food world, Blue Cheese can be a polarizing taste for some but, when it comes to cannabis, this is one of the finest tasting strains available.
Blue Cheese sports light green buds with a slightly bluish hue and curling bright orange pistils. The fan leaves range from dark green to profound purple, making this strain quite colorful and visually appealing. Moreover, the buds are so colorful and heavily coated with resin that they almost look like sour patch candy.
Blue Cheese Aroma
Some BC smokers say that the smell reminds them of a mix of blue cheese, rotten fruit, and skunk. Many stoners contend that Blue Cheese can easily compete with the most fragrant cannabis strains. A sweet floral, skunky, blueberry, and vanilla flavor greets you on the inhale, whereas the exhale is spicy, earthy, and musky with hints of fresh dill and diesel fuel.
Many terpenes act as self-defense mechanisms for plants. These hydrocarbons carry intense aromas that help protect the flowers from predators. However, they seem to attract humans leading to the further proliferation of the species. The unusual combination of the terpenes caryophyllene, humulene, limonene, myrcene, bisabolol, and linalool contribute to the unforgettable scent of the Blue Cheese cannabis strain.
Blue Cheese Cannabinoids
Blue Cheese has a THC content of approximately 20% with an average CBD of 2%. Medical patients use Blue Cheese to overcome sleep disorders and lack of appetite. It’s also good for those users experiencing depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and persistent stress. Due to the relatively high THC content, beginner smokers should dose carefully at first to avoid “greening out” on Blue Cheese. As with many indica heavy strains, dry/red eyes, and cottonmouth can occur after smoking or consuming edibles.
In contrast to many indicas, Blue Cheese is hardly a full-on assault. Instead, it gently drifts through the body, bringing physical relief along with a combination of additional therapeutic benefits. Smoking leads to a pleasantly relaxed stage that lasts about 3-4 hours until you come down. Blue Cheese melts away the pain and steers clear of couch-lock. Cannabis connoisseurs will appreciate her to the utmost degree.
Growing Blue Cheese Seeds
Blue Cheese is a straightforward grow with a natural resistance to bugs, pests, mildew, and mold. Additionally, a prompt 8-9 week flowering period allows for more harvest in less time. The sweet, fruity cheese aroma begins to develop just a few weeks after the start of flowering and continues to intensify as the plant matures. Most plants will reach a height of around 2.5-4 feet tall.
Indoor growers can expect an average yield of 18oz/m2 after 8-9 weeks of budding. Blue Cheese performs extremely well using the sea of green techniques. Both hydroponic and soil-based methods of growing will produce delicious tasting herb. A robust yield of 19oz/plant is standard for outdoor grows, with harvest time occurring in late September.
