Top 10 Cheese strains
The story of Cheese spans back to the UK’s underground Skunk plantations where breeders were selecting and stabilizing the most pungent and high-quality Skunks available.
After many years of meticulous breeding, Cheese varieties rose to the surface with their cheese-like aromas and flavors. For a strain to be considered a true Cheese, it must comprise Skunk genetics.
Here, we present the top 10 Cheese strains. Let’s dive into the dank fondue and embrace the cheesiest Cheese on the market.
1. Big Buddha Cheese
Let us present Big Buddha Cheese; winner of the HTCC in 2006, this indica-dominant excellence is a tried and true super-cheesy strain.

It’s smart to cook a solid meal before inhaling Big Buddha Cheese, as this will allow the crisps, donuts, and sugar-filled delicacies to be avoided. It’s a relatively potent strain, inducing strong
2. Blue Cheese
This cheesy plant is a must. Blue Cheese is a mix of Blueberry and Cheese genetics. The flavors are reminiscent of blueberry cheesecakes created by the top pastry chefs in the world.
The effects are very low-key, meditative, and relaxing. If you’re into yoga, meditation, incense sticks, Tibetan bowls and chimes, Blue Cheese can elevate your meditative endeavors to the next level.
The 19% THC levels of Blue Cheese make this strain quite potent. Even though it’s an indica-dominant variety, it also comprises solid sativa genetics from the Skunk side. If creative vibes and concentration are desired, Blue Cheese is a great pick.
The only thing that Blue Cheese has in common with blue cheese is a pungent aroma, which can penetrate nuclear bunkers.
This uplifting, euphoric, and energetic strain is a worthy member of this list. It rose to the surface after Big Buddha Cheese and NYC Diesel hybridized with intimate passion.
This strain is a trophy symbolizing the solidarity between UK and East Coast cannabis-lovers. As one can expect, Chiesel possesses cheese, grape, and diesel aromas. After vaping some Chiesel, the cheesy cannabinoids and terpenes chisel out the negativity, allowing positivity to flow through with mighty force.
It’s a relatively medium-sized plant, but the dense nugs become quite heavy. As such, they’ll need some kind of string support. If you’re new to Cheese strains, Chiesel will provide the ultimate guide to the Cheese world.
4. Sweet Cheese
Ladies and gentlemen, we’re honored to present the one and only Sweet Cheese. This sativa-dominant variety provides us with euphoric, energizing, groovy, and long-lasting highs.
The spicy and mature cheese aromas ooze from this strain, reminding us of those fancy cheese plates provided at wine tasting escapades. This award-winning Cheese specimen won several Cannabis Cups in Spain, where it flourishes under the Iberian sun.
Growers that involve Sweet Cheese into their ganja operations receive around 600g/m² of perfectly cheesy nugs after the curing process has finished. Sweet Cheese is a photoperiodic plant deriving from stabilized Skunks and Black Jack, a hybrid stemming from the legendary indica-dominant Black Domina and Jack Herer. Sweet Cheese is definitely a strain to consider for your next hotbox session.

UK Cheese: 50% Body / 50% Mind
The UK Cheese Strain Is A Balanced Hybrid
The name ‘UK Cheese’ is an ode to the strain’s birthplace. It is rumored to be a phenotype of Cheese that showed unusual, yet favorable uniqueness out of a pack of Sensi Seeds Skunk #1 that was grown in the hills of southern England (hence the UK in the name).
The phenotype had larger buds and a splendidly pungent cheese smell among other characteristics that set it apart. This plant of the Skunk #1 was cloned and renamed Cheese after its distinct smell.
Considering the Skunk #1 heritage of Afghanistan (Indica), Mexico (Sativa), Colombia (Sativa), we believe the original strain of Cheese (which is just a phenotype of Skunk #1 remember) can be regarded as a 50/50 Hybrid. This is because it has a near perfect blend of genetics to affect the body and mind equally.
The Legend Of The UK Cheese Strain
The legend of UK Cheese starts around the year of 1995, when a Cheese clone was passed on to an alternative community (group) by the name of, “Exodus,” who lived just north of London. This DIY culture group has been around in the UK since the 90’s, and is famous for their free community dance events, city farm, and social housing projects. Their free parties on weekends were known to attract thousands of people from all over.
“Many clones of the original UK Cheese were given out to travelers as gifts.”
However, their stance on marijuana is one of the things that caused them to have many problems with the law. The members of the collective protested UK law by outwardly growing and smoking marijuana in public.
With heavy traffic through the community, many clones of the original UK Cheese were given out to travelers as gifts.
Its budding notoriety in the UK caused Cheese clones to be passed around an extensive network of growers all throughout the 90’s. Cheese was a clone-only strain for some time, but many phenotypes of Cheese have surfaced since. It is believed by some that the original UK/Exodus phenotype is still floating around in the hands of the most senior of growers. It would be something special to get our hands on a bag of that medicine.
How Will The UK Cheese Strain Affect Me?
The particular batch of UK Cheese that we had was very sticky, to the point where it was a chore to break it up with our fingers. After resorting to a grinder, we took off the top to reveal a pungent smell that smacked us in the face. This was a one of a kind smell that could only be described as a mix of fresh berries and cheddar cheese.
“This was a one of a kind smell that could only be described as a mix of fresh berries and cheddar cheese.”
The taste is akin to the smell; it’s fruity with hints of berries, cheese, and undertones of skunk. Upon exhale, the flavors of skunk and cheese coat your mouth, and lingers between hits. This is when the cheese flavor is most noticeable. The smoke is potent, with a ‘stoned’ effect immediately settling in behind the eyes all the way down to our legs.
It’s 50% Indica and 50% Sativa lineage make the UK Cheese strain a perfect blend of body and mind. After two small bowls we experienced a severe case of ‘couch-lock’ accompanied by an uplifting, euphoric effect. We found it easy to focus and get work done after smoking UK Cheese. Nonetheless, you have no desire to move once you get settled in your chair.
UK Cheese is an ideal strain for patients seeking daytime pain, stress, and anxiety relief without the fear of crashing. It could also serve as an anti-depressant, as it puts you in high spirits after just one draw from the bong (no pun intended). UK Cheese remains one of our favorite Hybrid strains to medicate with during the day.
