Today we’re reviewing one of the most misleading sativa-dominant buds out there on the market – Blueberry Cheesecake. Misleading why you ask? There is only one way to find out!
Stick around to find out all there is to know about this well-balanced bud, and why it gets its name…
What is the Blueberry Cheesecake Cannabis Strain?
Have you ever picked out a piece of cake or a candy bar based on its name alone? If you like to shop with your eyes and love a great sounding bud name, then prepare to be disappointed!
Blueberry Cheesecake is everything an excellent sativa bud should be – fun, euphoric, well balanced and one hell of a buzz. One thing Blueberry Cheesecake isn’t, however, is anything like it sounds!
If you‘re picturing a fruity, sweet dessert-strain, then you’ve got this bud all wrong. Its genetic profile speaks volumes, being from a cross between the pungent Cheese and Blueberry strains. Anyone who has ever sampled Cheese will understand where we are coming from when we say that Blueberry Cheesecake is undoubtedly an acquired taste!
The bud’s genetic profile is almost identical to Big Buddha’s famous Blue Cheese bud – so we will let you decide whether this tangy sativa could be a distinct phenotype or not!
This is pretty easy to come by bud as many seed companies have made seeds of the strain for themselves – so you can buy seeds online if you feel so inclined!
When it comes to its potency, this bud offers a generous THC percentage between 10 and 20, with around 2% CBD making it ideal for medicinal use as well as recreational.
Blueberry Cheesecake Cannabis Strain Appearance, Aroma and Flavor
Blueberry Cheesecake may have its flaws when it comes to sensory appeal, but one area it thrives in is aesthetics!
Boasting visually striking lime green leaves and coated with orange hairs and tons of crystals – there is certainly a lot to look at with this bud.
Knowledgeable and dedicated cultivators will also take advantage of the aesthetic potential of Blueberry Cheesecake by exposing it to colder temperatures during growth. This will bring out vibrant hues of purple and blue, which make for beautiful buds.
This sativa-leaning hybrid still benefits from certain indica traits, which can be identified in the way it’s structured. With dense and tightly coiled leaves that encompass medium-sized flowers that are somewhat irregular and inconsistent in shape, it’s a fascinating looking plant.
The overwhelming scent of Blueberry Cheesecake is what you might imagine from its name (contrary to how it tastes!). With complex notes of sweet berries, but a recognizable hint of skunk and tang – this is a pretty mouth-watering bud to smell.
One thing to note to smokers and cultivators alike is that Blueberry Cheesecake is not discreet! By that we mean you can smell this bud from some distance – and so this should be taken into consideration if you’re looking for discretion.
Now, this is the exciting part! Blueberry Cheesecake is strong from the off and has no resemblance to cheesecake (sorry). For those who love a tangy, Blue Cheese-esque flavor, you will love this!
There’s a definite sourness to this bud, with notes of citrus coming in that helps separate from the pungent skunk flavors that first hit.
Unique in its flavor, we would recommend any cannabis lover try this out – just for the experience alone!
