Regarded as a gourmet strain and an epicurean's dream, Blue Cheese rolls a distinctly bold aroma and weightless sense of euphoria into one plant. Its effects are relaxing, mellow, and long-lasting, and it tastes incredible. No wonder it's so popular!
The creamy flavor is an influence of the widely popular UK Cheese from which it descended. Set against this, in perfect contrast, is the fruity berry flavor of the quintessential Blueberry.
In terms of its make-up, Blue Cheese leans more towards the Blueberry side. As such, its most notable trait, apart from fragrance, is in putting smokers in a trance of deep relaxation. Not to be outdone, the UK Cheese genetics add a sweet kick to the platter, and provide long-lasting cerebral elevation from the first toke.
Although available in flower form, there is also the option of growing Blue Cheese from seed in the comfort of your own home. Blue Cheese has proven to be popular among medical users and recreational smokers alike. Now, thanks to these feminized seeds from Homegrown Cannabis, it is not only convenient but also easy.
Growing Blue Cheese from Feminized Seeds
Blue Cheese is ideal for novice gardeners because it quite easy to grow. One reason for this is its natural resistance to mold and mildew. Also, it thrives equally well in outdoor and indoor setups.
Most growers prefer an indoor setting. It is not a tall plant and, by topping early, growers can keep it at just over 2.5 feet tall. While fitting it inside a small grow room is possible, its stretchy nature also means that it requires regular pruning. This is one of the benefits of using feminized seeds – the plants do not have hermaphroditic tendencies when subjected to the stress of trimming.
Using hydroponics is a great option. But to let the plant achieve its full potential with regards to fragrance and flavors, it is best to use soil as the growing medium. Its flowering time lasts from 8 to 9 weeks. When it is ready, growers can harvest up to 1.63 ounces per square foot.
Outdoors, Blue Cheese should be planted in an environment with plenty of sunshine. It can grow up to 2 and a half feet tall, but this is still quite short when compared to Sativa plants. It should be ready for harvest by mid-October with each plant capable of producing up to 19.4 ounces.
Fragrance and Flavor
Blue Cheese emits an oddly pleasing odor reminiscent of a pungent, well-aged cheese. Sweet notes of blueberry help to temper its pungency, making for an interesting aromatic blend.
Just like a cheese and grapes platter, this strain makes for an exceptional appetizer. Once lit, the harsh smoke can irritate the throat and induce a coughing fit, so take it slowly. After the exhale, it leaves a deliciously fruity aftertaste.
Blue Cheese is a perfect mood-enhancer. It is a far-reaching strain that delivers a well-rounded and satisfying experience, although its relaxing high doesn't kick in right away. Instead, it creeps in slowly, following the initial euphoric rush.
The high THC level ensures a cerebral, soothing buzz. As the built-up tension washes away, it is replaced with a relaxing sense of calm that helps people unwind while remaining lucid and awake.
Blue Cheese, if used in moderation, is relaxing without causing sedation. However, a little bit too much and it can deliver a devastating blow leaving users spaced-out and stuck to the couch.
Blue Cheese is said to be an excellent choice when it comes to dealing with various ailments. Its most common application, as with other high THC strains, is as a stress-reliever
. It has also been used to help lift the mood of those suffering from bouts of depression
It has analgesic properties that may provide reprieve from pains and other body discomforts. Along with the uplifting qualities of its Indica side, this can help foster a sense of well-being for the body and mind.
Drowsiness often follows after a session smoking Blue Cheese. For this reason, it should be used late in the day or evening. Insomniacs
may also benefit from this trait as a restful night's sleep is likely to follow.
