Blue Cheese Marijuana Strain

By now, it’s pretty well known within the reefer community that the Cheese family of weed strains is oddly reminiscent of actual cheese – causing the name to accurately represent what one can expect of these beautiful little nuggets.

Blue Cheese weed, however, seems to take a fruity and sweet twist on the traditional cheesiness of this genetic lineage, adding an extra special note to an already wonderful medicine that is essential to any patient – or stoner’s – pot stash.

| Originally bred in the United Kingdom, Blue Cheese marijuana has spread with rabbit-like efficiency throughout the world.

In fact, Cheese strains have taken over many pot shops and medical marijuana dispensaries on both the west and east coasts, popping up in locales as widespread as California, Maine, and Colorado.

In terms of effects and therapeutic benefits, Blue Cheese weed has proved especially beneficial for those needing sleep assistance, as well as for those who suffer from various psychological conditions or lack of appetite.

Keep on reading our complete Blue Cheese strain review to find out anything and everything you could ever want to know about this pungent, potent, cheesy little cannabis delight.

What Is Blue Cheese Weed?

As we mentioned earlier, the Cheese family is actually a group of cannabis strains that were originally bred in the United Kingdom. Of course, as breeders are always trying to get a bit more creative, they added little ‘genetic twists’ here and there to the traditional and unique Cheese strain – one of which ended up being the now-famous Blue Cheese.

A cross between parent plants UK Cheese (hybrid) and Blueberry (indica), the result was a hearty strain packed full of THC – as well as that traditional cheesy aroma.

Unofficially, Blue Cheese marijuana is classified as an indica, with a roughly 80% indica and 20% sativa genetic profile. Unlike most traditional indicas, though, the high from Blue Cheese weed won’t hit you like a ton of bricks. Instead, it almost washes over the body, bringing overall relief with an immense variety of therapeutic benefits.

THC levels of Blue Cheese weed typically reach around the 20% mark, so certainly this isn’t the strongest of strains that we have reviewed here at MarijuanaBreak. However, this girl definitely makes it on the charts for a ganja type that’s a real hitter – don’t underestimate The Big Cheese, unless you want to pay the consequences.

| Many seed banks have produced their own version of Blue Cheese weed over the years, which explains the widespread distribution of this funky little strain.

Big Buddha Seeds, for instance, is often credited with bringing a perfected Blue Cheese strain to the commercial market. Additionally, Royal Queen Seeds and Barney’s Farm, both based out of the Netherlands, have produced their own varieties of Blue Cheese, with growers often trusting these two breeders for access to top-quality seeds.

Blue Cheese Review: Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance

Probably the number one most defining factor of Blue Cheese cannabis is its intriguing aroma and flavor, which is oddly reminiscent of, you guessed it… actual cheese. In fact, the aftertaste produces a slight sourness much like that of Parmesan or Gouda.

Blue Cheese brings about another palatable twist, however, as it features notes of blueberry fruitiness that seem to become especially apparent when inhaled.

Unlike the aroma, the flavor of Blue Cheese is on the sweeter side, with most of the sourness pulling an escape act during the combustion process. Inhalation is typically sweet and delicious, with exhalation becoming musky, earthy, and sometimes spicy (but always pungent).

| Appearance-wise, the Blue Cheese strain has a subtle blueish-purple undertone, with the sugar leaves exposing angelic-like hues of pastel violets.

Overall, the buds are pretty resin-coated, producing a glistening and sugary appearance that can make any stoner’s mouth water with anticipation.

The flowers of Blue Cheese weed are typically various shades of yellow/green, and contain streaks of sandy orange pistils (fine hairs) that are ultra curly and tightly wound.

The water leaves are usually a wide range of colors, presenting themselves as any shade from deep green to deep purple, causing the variety of hues for this strain to be especially prominent. All in all, this is a strain that’s as visually appealing as it is palatable.

Blue Cheese strain review

All of the beginner cannabis growers out there can take a massive sigh of relief, because Blue Cheese weed is thankfully a pretty simple strain to cultivate.

This strain is naturally resistant to mold, which is always a plus because Blue Cheese actually thrives the most outdoors in cold climates, hence its original UK roots. Colder climates, like those in England, tend to also mean increased humidity, which can lead to mold and powdery mildew problems.

Due to its natural resistance to mold, powdery mildew, bugs, pests and more, however, Blue Cheese growers won’t have to lose sleep over their crops becoming destroyed by an onset of inclement weather – or an invasion of tiny little microscopic pests.

| Unlike some indicas, Blue Cheese weed is pretty average in height, with stems that usually spread out and stretch far and wide.

The Blue Cheese strain has a fairly short flowering period, at only 8-9 weeks, with outdoor harvest falling around the end of September – sooner than typical harvests which are usually around October.

The short flowering period can be a plus, meaning more harvest seasons per year (if you choose to cultivate indoors). Whether deciding to grow indoors or outdoors, the yield amount from either environment does not differ so drastically, which is good news for those who maybe don’t live in the right region for growing Blue Cheese weed outside.

Indoor crops grow well using hydroponics and also soil growth techniques, so there is quite some freedom for those cultivating this crop. Indoor yields are typically around 18 ounces per square meter, with outdoor yields only becoming slightly greater at 19 ounces per plant.

Blue Cheese Review: Mind + Body Effects

Blue Cheese cannabis has a notorious tendency for making relaxation a breeze, immediately settling down anyone that tries this dynamic strain – expect to feel elevated as happiness overwhelms your mind and body.

The come-up for this weed is gradual, though, so don’t expect to be hit drastically with all these out-of-the-ordinary feelings. Rather, your change in brain chemicals and decrease in body stress levels will seem natural, as the relaxation creeps up upon you slowly – washing over your entire soul as needed.

Euphoria and pure bliss are characteristic of the Blue Cheese high, making it an ideal nighttime strain for those who are trying to take it easy after a long, demanding day.

By the end of the high, you’ll likely experience sedative-like, sleepy feelings that will encourage you to lay your head down for a tranquil night’s rest. All in all, Blue Cheese cannabis does know exactly how to bring about bliss for its consumers, easing them on a journey through positivity and elation.

Medical Benefits of Blue Cheese Weed

Medical Blue Cheese Strain

One of the quintessential strains for managing chronic stress levels, lack of appetite, chronic pain and insomnia, Blue Cheese weed has medicinal effects that are typically characteristic of indica strains. However, this strain usually does not cause an immediate onset of a desire for sleep, but rather comes on mildly as the high progresses.

| Most patients that use Blue Cheese for pain choose to consume a dose that is larger than average, in order to maximize the healing benefits of its effects.

Patients with psychological conditions can also discover real relief from the Blue Cheese strain, as individuals suffering from depressionPTSD, ADHD, and anxiety have all found helpful, potentially life-changing amounts of therapy.

Possible Negative Effects of Blue Cheese

Although the Blue Cheese strain has a sizeable THC content, due to its calming and serene indica genetics it does not tend to produce THC-induced paranoia or anxiety for consumers that are prone to this occurring.

This is of course great news for all, as it makes Blue Cheese a suitable strain for a wide-variety of individuals – and a greater diversity in the marijuana world is usually a positive thing.

Primarily, consumers of Blue Cheese have reported cottonmouth (dry mouth) and dry eyes, which is of course typical of most any ganja strain. Both of these negative side effects are manageable with a little extra preparation, as you can drink plenty of hydrating fluids before, during and after your high, and also keep moisturizing eye drops close on hand.

    Oil cart

    I came upon an oil cartridge of 90 % thc. Indica. Omg, best I ever had and can’t find it since. First time in 17 years I went 11 waking hours withour a Xanax. I have crippling anxiety. I could also put myself into a hypnotic state and channel my pain into music I love.

  2. Melvin Durkin
    How strong is it?

    I have been smoking for just a month as of now, is it okay if I try blue cheese, I am thinking of dabbing. Or is it too strong for beginners? I heard it is a great strain for relaxation, the purpose I started smoking, and so would like to go for this.

    Grows well indoors

    Am growing 3 BC’s indoors at the moment. Nice clean plant, simple to grow. 5th wk of flower & buds growing great…sugar leaves starting to glitter. Lends well to LST! A1!

  4. Teresa Presley
    Cool Info!

    Try this Blue Cheese with chocolate and Tea, the high will last longer. And if you are just using this in our edibles, the taste is a bit sweet, and a little sour as well. It is difficult to define actually.

  5. Tina Mairs
    Very nice

    Tried this strain for the first time yesterday. I suffer from chronic pain and all that goes with it and I must say I’m liking it so far. I fell asleep so good last night. I’m hoping it’ll help my husband with his sleeping problems also. So far the only draw back I found so far, is it’s not one to smoke for a pick me up and getting your day started. I’d still give it a 9 1/2 out of 10! Will definitely get again!

    blue cheese

    This is so true. I suffer from debilitating pain and this is like slowly sinking into a healing bath. After 20 minutes or so, I feel so much better that I could be in a different body, entirely.

    Blue cheese: one of my fave cheeses and strains

    This is very well written and straight to the point. This has been my exact experience.

  8. Kay lazek

    Blue cheese to me is a everyday strain, not really trippy high..something I have in my stable to smoke after before a shower…this strain could help individuals who struggle with feeling uneasy, panicked in crowds…stress is almost none existent…but too much in a bowl, bong will have relaxed enough for sleep…

    1. Cris
      Blue cheese

      I’ve just got what looks like blue cheese ..bit can’t find that cheese y taste like I’ve had with other cheese strain’s just had my first j off it ….

      What ever it is it’s dam good I will be going getting more after one more j hah

    Getting high is not good with this strain, the effect is weird

  10. Ryan

    I can’t smoke this stuff without wanting to fall asleep within the hour, which honestly reminds me more of opium than of some good, balanced bud. Thusly, I can’t smoke it to start my day, even in small amounts, without soon getting that “well, it’s been a long day already…” feeling. This can be really frustrating!

    If you have anything important to get done and need to stay focused and energetic, stay far away from this strain. It will make an otherwise physically active stoner become intensely lazy and potentially crabby for the better part of the day.

  11. Kerry Weil

    Insomnia is an awful thing. If you don’t suffer from it, count yourself lucky. Blue Cheese has been very effective in helping me to sleep better at night. I love having a natural cure, rather than having to depend on sleeping pills.
