Blue Cheese Strain
Blue Cheese is a classic indica-dominant hybrid that delivers a memorable taste alongside a balanced high. Its distinctive name has more to do with its genetic lineage, a cross between the popular Blueberry and the UK-native strain Cheese, than its taste, which is surprisingly fruity.
The Blue Cheese name has more to do with its lineage than taste. Blue Cheese achieves its potency with an average THC composition of about 17% to 28%.
More common on the West Coast than other areas of the U.S., Blue Cheese is a pleasantly balanced strain that achieves equally potent effects on the body and mind. It’s well-suited to mindless post-work or weekend unwinding, as well as to tasks or errands that have to be performed during the day. The sense of uplift makes it a popular option for social gatherings as well. With such qualities to recommend it, Blue Cheese is unlikely to be as polarizing as its dairy counterpart. Don’t be fooled, though — this is one strain of cannabis whose smell is unlikely to fly under the radar.
The high from this strain can creep up slowly — without the initial head-rush that’s associated with many cerebral sativa strains, this indica will gradually bring on a sense of physical relaxation and an altered way of thinking that may catch smokers by surprise. This mellow indica vibe is excellent for restfulness and de-stressing, but it won’t necessarily lead to incapacitating couch-lock — although couch-lock is a possibility with larger and larger doses. Blue Cheese’s physical effects make it a good means of relief from minor aches and pains, as well as an aid to counteract insomnia. On the sativa side, Blue Cheese confers a mildly euphoric high that won’t leave users trapped in a cerebral loop of recursive thinking. As such, it’s a great option for treating anxiety, depression, and even some symptoms associated with PTSD.
