Like its Skunk #1 parent, Cheese rose to fame thanks to its distinct, pungent aroma and incredible potency. Its acidic tang, which smells like old feta, gets the nostrils twitching before the euphoric high sets in. Pronounced yet pleasurable, the thick resin production inherited from Afghani is a telltale sign of its powerful effects.
Although already an established name in the recreational cannabis scene, Cheese needed some enhancements to help it attract a bigger crowd in the medicinal department. With this in mind, the cultivar was hybridized with an unspecified high-CBD cultivar The result of the coupling is a cannabidiol-rich version of Cheese with the 'golden ratio' of 1:1 CBD to THC content.
In contrast with the original, this therapeutic variety produces only a mild cerebral buzz, so there are unlikely to be any racing thoughts, anxiety or paranoia. More importantly, it delivers a holistic calm and is said to diminish the symptoms of many widespread ailments.
Homegrown Cannabis Co. is delighted to offer CBD Cheese in feminized seed form. Patients seeking relief from cannabis products often have no interest in breeding and therefore have no use for male seedlings. Using fems makes cultivation a lot simpler: female CBD Cheese plants, in particular, are guaranteed heavy-yielders as long as they're given an optimal home. If securing an ample supply of medicinal marijuana is a crucial concern, this variety should be top of your list.
Growing CBD Cheese Feminized Seeds
CBD Cheese is almost identical to the original Cheese. Its slender, elongated leaves and wide internodal gaps are as Sativa as can be. Airflow and light penetration are rarely a cause for concern because of the plant's thin, airy foliage, which also endows it with high resilience against moisture buildup and pathogens.
The cultivar is very straightforward to grow indoors. Its moderate height and lateral growth rarely cause any issues with space, but if vertical room is limited, consider topping or fimming the plant before growing it in a Screen of Green (ScrOG) set-up. Keep the temperature between 70 and 80°F and the humidity level between 40 and 50% during its 7 to 9 weeks of flowering. With the right technique and favorable environmental conditions, a harvest of up to 1.63 ounces of dense buds per square foot is perfectly achievable.
Growers in locations with a Mediterranean-type climate are in luck. CBD Cheese loves the outdoors and will relish life if placed in a sunny spot. Without restraint, it can reach up to 8 feet tall, developing long branches that can carry as much as 35 ounces of nugs per plant. By early to mid-October, this whopping harvest is ready for drying and curing.
If staying low-key is crucial, consider guerrilla growing or cultivate in a controlled setting with a powerful carbon filter. Apart from these two options, there's pretty much nothing else you can do to mask the stink of this pungent cultivar.
Fragrance and Flavor
Imagine the funky aroma of mature cheddar plus a bit of Skunk's stench and you have CBD Cheese. It also comes with a floral nuance and a subtle acid tang that carries over to the flavor. The citric note is slightly more prominent when inhaled, leaving a cheesy, skunky aftertaste that carries just a hint of sweet oranges.
CBD Cheese's 1:1 THC to CBD ratio imparts a mild yet long-lasting burst of euphoria and a sense of general contentment. Instead of bestowing the soaring high recreational cannabis cultivars are known for, this variant puts the mind in a smooth, clear-headed state of bliss. It's unlikely to bring sudden shifts in mood, or racing thoughts, or heightened emotions. This mellow psychoactive effect makes it suitable for users with low THC tolerance, and those who want the therapeutic benefits with only a gentle buzz can try it too.
Under CBD Cheese's influence, every limb feels soft, relaxed, and pain-free. Moving is still possible but not exactly high on the agenda. Intense hunger will also strike, so it's best to prep some food before taking a hit and keep it close by. As the buzz dissipates, drowsiness will kick in, signaling that sleep is just around the corner.
Feminized CBD Cheese Seeds
CBD Cheese carries the well-loved 'old feta' fragrance of the original Cheese cultivar. But unlike its predecessor, it contains equal parts THC and CBD which ensures a gentler mental buzz along with holistic therapeutic potential. It's said to diminish the symptoms of many widespread conditions including migraines, arthritis, anxiety, stress and insomnia.
These feminized CBD Cheese seeds are perfect for those cultivating for consumption. They make the grow journey more straightforward, as there are no males to get rid of and no risk of accidental pollination. As an added bonus, these fems from Homegrown Cannabis Co. are sure-fire heavy-yielders, which makes them especially advantageous if securing a plentiful supply of medicinal herb is the end goal.
