Just like any good, strong, pungent strains of weed, Cheese originates from a special Skunk #1 phenotype. The aroma and taste of Cheese were so distinctive that every grower who had the opportunity to encounter it wanted to get their hands on it. Finally, after a long time available only as a clone, the Dutch crossed it with a pure Afghani breed, producing the seeds available today. This means that they were able to grow the same strain with even higher yields than the original. It still retains the same distinctive taste, smell, and potency of the original strain that was loved in the ’80s.
Mixing genetics with an Afghani strain is what allowed growers to make this strain even stronger than it was originally. It also allowed growers to increase yields to bigger than they were originally, another part of the reason this strain became so popular.
Growing Cheese is a very rewarding experience, both indoors and outdoors, and it is extremely well-suited to SCROG cultivation techniques. Harvests remain generous regardless of where this UK-originating jewel is being cultivated, and the quality of its buds is astounding.
