It was back in the late 80s that a packet of Sensi Seeds Skunk No. 1 produced a single, extraordinary phenotype. This was in the UK, somewhere in south-east England, and the plant in question had enormous buds and a bizarre cheesy odour. Immediately identified as a distinctive new direction in cannabis cultivation, the unique discovery was a sensation across the British Isles, becoming one of the most popular strains in circulation throughout the 1990s.

Cheese is a firm favourite at Seedscanner HQ, the Dinafem Cheese was definitely in our top 3 weeds of 2013. However to this day it remains a love/hate kind of marijuana, with devotees extolling the virtues of its unusual flavour and funky smell, while detractors continue to disparage it for its unusual flavour and funky smell. Whatever your thoughts on it's popularity, Cheese is now firmly established as a big name on the cannabis scene, and a huge number of successful Indica-dominant hybrids have been created by incorporating some of its DNA.

Medically, Cheese is especially popular as an appetite stimulant. This isn’t (only) because of its aroma, which is often described as being reminiscent of goat’s cheese or cheddar, but also because it has proven to be useful for people suffering with anorexia, as well as those on antiretrovirals. Furthermore it works well to reduce the symptoms of anxiety disorders such as PTSD or agoraphobia, and some insomniacs find that it helps them to sleep.

The breeder Big Buddha, whose version of Cheese won the Cannabis Cup Indica category in 2006, claims that to optimise the pungency of your plants you should incorporate guano and worm castings into your growing medium. We’ll leave it up to you as to whether you think this seems like a good idea, but it is generally considered an easy strain to grow, with a flowering time of eight to ten weeks and a THC content of up to 20%. If grown indoors, however, we would recommend some form of odour control – unless your neighbours really love the smell of dairy products because this really is some stinky cheese.
