UK Cheese is a 50/50 hybrid strain. It has a fruity berry aroma with a CBD level of 0.73 per cent and high levels of THC: 15-20%.
Like its namesake, nugs do smell just like cheese, with subtle hints of pine, fruit, and cream. These notes carry into its flavor as well, with an earthy and sweet taste upon exhaling. What’s perhaps most impressive about UK Cheese are the flowers themselves, as individual buds are massive. Thick trichomes and bright pistils make for one pretty looking nug.
UK Cheese is said to hit hard and fast. Users’ first experience of increased happiness and waves of euphoria is followed by a powerful body-numbing high that leads to increased appetite. A few users report feeling more creative than lazy or tired, but the sedating Indica effect is likely to be the most powerful, resulting in a couch-lock. Side effects include cotton mouth and bloodshot eyes.
The strain retains the mood-elevating qualities of a Sativa and is often used by people dealing with stress and anxiety disorders. The heavy body melt provides relief from chronic aches and pains. Many find it useful for treatment of insomnia. Cheese is also often used by people who need to increase appetite.
