Blue Cheese is famous for its potent fragrance. A Barney’s Farm cross of the Cheese and Blueberry strains, this stocky indica-dominant was destined to be both pungent and strong.
Heritage & Genetics: Barney’s Farm created Blue Cheese when they crossed the world famous Cheese strain with the old school classic Blueberry. While Cheese is notorious for its overpowering scent and reliability, Blueberry is known for its short stature and quick flowering time. These genetics combined make Blue Cheese a sturdy and generous plant with a unique aroma and strong effect.
Flavor & Aroma: The flavors and aroma of Blue Cheese are incredibly fragrant. Its Cheese parent brings a heavier side to the taste while Blueberry lightens the experience with soft sweeter notes. Its pungent aroma is also noticeable during the growing period, so those preferring discretion should be aware of this.
Effect: Blue Cheese is a strong strain with an average of 23% THC. Its calming, relaxing, and sleepy high are one indica-lovers will appreciate. Blue Cheese is suited for the evening when its euphoric, ‘couch-locking’ effects can be enjoyed uninterrupted.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Blue Cheese is an excellent strain for growing in a Sea of Green method. Typically growing to a medium size height, it won’t stretch much during the flowering stage due to the short internodal spacing and lower side branching. Growers can expect dense, sticky buds shielded in terpene-rich resin within 8-9 weeks. Thanks to its resilience to cold temperatures, Blue Cheese performs very well outdoors as well as in greenhouses.
