The indica-dominant strain Blue Cheese derives its name mostly from its scent, baring a savory cheese-like smell with a sweet berry undertone of which it inherited from its parent strains. Despite its cheesy smell, its taste tends to veer towards berries. Some reviewers have mentioned a hint of strawberry in flavor.
Blue Cheese was created by cross-breeding a male indica strain of Blueberry with a female hybrid of UK Cheese.
Its normal THC level is around 15%, with its highest-testing topping off at 20%. The high that Blue Cheese creates is a very noticeable elated and relaxed state of being, with a trace of inducing creativity for many reviewers. Suggested use is in the evenings and at night.
The high is known to be a creeper, not instantaneous, so beginning slowly with this strain is suggested. Though Blue Cheese brings a relaxing body high, it does not cause the body to feel heavy like many other indica strains tend to do – so for many, it won’t create a “couch-lock.” Rather, this strain will bring about a very mild idleness due to its comforting effects.
Besides the normal cotton mouth and dry eyes, Blue Cheese can cause minor dizziness or paranoia.
When growing, this strain does best in cool climates and is considered easy to cultivate. It produces a high leaf to calyx ratio and takes anywhere between eight to ten weeks to flower.
