The cerebral high and piquant taste of Head Cheese cannabis has won it lots of fans. The strain is Sativa leaned and is known to get its genetics from Headband 707 and UK Cheese. THC levels range from 20-24%.

The parent strains' aroma lineage made this weed sharply cheesy, pungent, skunky in fragrance with the floral hints that make the combination more balanced. Users also admit cheese and citrus taste on the exhale.

Though Head Cheese strain is 65/35 Sativa based, it is rather sedative than cerebral. Medical users love it for its ability to treat such conditions as pains, aches, migraines, inflammation, headaches, and nausea. It is a good solution for people struggling with appetite loss and concentration disorders. The euphoric state brought by this weed alleviates depression and stress.

For recreational purposes, users consume it to unwind after a rough day or focus on some thinking process. Head Cheese weed offers a high that is often described as calm, relaxing, introspective, and creative. Users admit that surroundings perception changes and they can feel music and art much sharper and generally see it in another way. As the high wears on couch locking effects may come and put smokers into relaxing drowsiness.

Great for intermediate growers, the seeds are commercially available. Head Cheese plants thrive after 9-10 weeks.

CBD Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps. 0.22 - 0.51%

CBG Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component.

I could swear its indica or hybrid and even bet on it, but I would lose. Its the strangest, most surprising and unusual sativa I ever tried. Man, Im in love! The high is so unpredictable, real rollercoaster. I give it five stars.

Jesus, are there stickier buds than these? I dont think so! Made a mess and still had a difficult time to break it. Other than that, very happy with this strain. The odor might be a little bit strong for some but hey… you shouldve guessed it.
