UK Cheese Genetics
UK Cheese strain is the most popular strain to come out of the British Isles. A community of growers based around the Luton region in the area north of London, originally started growing this strain in the mid-1990s. UK Cheese is an especially pungent phenotype of the Sensi Seeds strain Skunk #1. This pheno has and average THC content of 17%-20% with less than 1% CBD. The terpenes are mostly all myrcene here which gives Cheese its extraordinary musky smell. Growers in the UK shared this strain all over the region throughout the years. Eventually it was exported to the EU continent where it quickly gained popularity in Amsterdam. It then eventually made its way to the United States in the late 90’s.
It was originally a Sensi Seeds Skunk #1 phenotype that exhibited an extraordinary smell of vintage Cheese. Maintained in clone form for many years by anyone lucky enough to get their hands on it eventually it was hybridized with Afghani #1 and seeds were produced.
It quickly became one of the Top Ten strains sold in all the coffee-shops in Amsterdam and won numerous awards in the High Times Cannabis Cup. UK Cheese produces a well-balanced effect, a physical and cerebral mixture.
Flavor & Aroma
UK Cheese strain is famous for its pungent and funky cheesy smell like aged cheddar cheese that has been hanging around a cave full of skunks. There are also some fruity and spicy earthy notes. The taste is almost identical to its smell and leaves a spicy and tangy cheese flavor on the palate. The scent of fresh buds and the odor from the smoke is very strong so, be careful if using nearby others unless you want someone asking you for a taste.
