Cheesecake strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid created as a result of crossing Cheese and unknown strain. It got its name and popularity due to its strong cheesy aroma. Cheesecake weed has a reputation as a heavy-hitter because of its 20-23% THC content, while CBD level dos not exceed 1%. Given these factors, the strain is more suitable for veterans than beginners.

Honestly I was expecting this weed to taste like real cheesecake but instead it was more like real cheese with some slight sweetness. The effects were great though, next time I will smoke it using a vape and see how the aroma and taste is affected

Cheesecake Strain - Special Dessert

Cheesecake Strain Flavors

Cheesecake kush is influenced by a variety of terpenes, so all users can enjoy a whole extravaganza of flavors. For example, due to the dominant Geraniol and Bisabolol, a flowery flavor is felt, and when burned, pepper and apple are also added to it under the influence of Phellandrene. Pinene, in turn, gives a light pineapple and pine aftertaste.

Cheesecake Strain Effects

Smokers appreciate this strain for helping to calm down quickly after a busy day. Its long-lasting high begins with a euphoric rush and uplifting mood. Perfectly relaxing the body, the effects also promote communication, so you can smoke alone or in the company of friends. But you should be aware that Cheesecake kush provokes a strong couch-lock, as well as drowsiness after the high is over, so users prefer to smoke it in the evening. Also, it may relieve chronic or acute pain, ease stress and insomnia.

However, the following side effects may occur:

  • Paranoia
  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Hunger

Cheesecake Strain Growing Info

You can grow this strain yourself, luckily the seeds are available online. However, the plant can be quite capricious, so it is more suitable for experienced growers. Cheesecake strain can be grown indoors or outdoors, but when choosing a place, you should take into account the height, because, for example, indoors, the height reaches 60-80 inches, and outdoors even more than 90. With a short flowering time of 7-8 weeks, harvests are ready by early October. Growing indoors yields a crop of about 300 g /m², and you can obtain 400 g/plant when cultivating outdoors. Growers are also satisfied with the appearance of the flowers, as the green-purple buds are motley decorated with fiery orange pistils.
