About this Indica Strain
The indica strain Blue Cheese derives its name mostly from its scent, baring a savory cheese-like smell with a sweet berry undertone of which it inherited from its parent strains. Despite its cheesy smell, its taste tends to veer towards berries. Some reviewers have mentioned a hint of strawberry in flavor.
Blue Cheese was created by cross-breeding a male indica strain of Blueberry with a female hybrid of UK Cheese.
Its normal THC level is around 15%, with its highest-testing topping off at 20%. The high that Blue Cheese creates is a very noticeable elated and relaxed state of being, with a trace of inducing creativity for many reviewers. Suggested use is in the evenings and at night.
The high is known to be a creeper, not instantaneous, so beginning slowly with this strain is suggested. Though Blue Cheese brings a relaxing body high, it does not cause the body to feel heavy like many other indica strains tend to do – so for many, it won’t create a “couch-lock.” Rather, this strain will bring about a very mild idleness due to its comforting effects.
Besides the normal cotton mouth and dry eyes, Blue Cheese can cause minor dizziness or paranoia.
When growing, this strain does best in cool climates and is considered easy to cultivate. It produces a high leaf to calyx ratio and takes anywhere between eight to ten weeks to flower.

The high point of this strain for sure, the aroma was a wonderfully pungent mix of sweet blueberry and sharp, musky, putrid elements… which, yes, can be described as smelling like cheese. It’s a very strange and unique taste that you really only find in Cheese strains — alternately appealing and revolting, like many fine cheeses
The taste took on more of the cheese elements than the smell did, while the berry sweetness fell to the background. One reviewer commented that there was even an iron/mineral-like taste, similar to what is found in very “goaty” cheeses, while others mainly picked up on peppery, sharp notes. The sweetness was still present, but the sharp tastes were stronger for sure.
We had one outlier reviewer in our results that had a very uppy, motivational experience full of energy, exaggerated hand motions, and laughter… this contrasted with the experiences of the other reviewers yet was repeated on a secondary review, so we felt it worth mentioning. Sometimes meds simply affect people differently, so keep that in mind with this one, as we don’t normally have one review sticking out so much from the others.
The majority of staff felt that this was a wonderful relaxing med that served to take all the troubles and pains of the day and put the brakes on them. Starting off with a buzzing, warm body, strong forehead/temple pressure, and an immediate mood elevation, this strain felt really potent early on. It was a torquey med that stayed at medicinal levels for around 1.5 hours, only tailing off around hour 2. The dominant state was one of engaged but inactive focus, where the couch and a movie or video games were the perfect accompaniment. It was a great “stealth med” though, as the reviewer’s physical appearance was unaffected despite the potency. A soft drop (or perhaps a rise, since it was a “down” med overall) back to sobriety made this a smooth experience overall.
