It has potent, balanced effects. It was originally created in 1990 by the UK collective group Exodus (and is hence also known as Exodus Cheese). This strain doesn’t actually smell like real cheese, but it does have the ‘cheese’ smell which has become so popular across the world.

UK Cheese hybrid
UK Cheese is probably best known for its large, fluffy, cylindrical buds. It has sativa-shaped leaves, which will be very familiar to those who smoke a lot of green. When cured, it turns a deep shade of forest green, which further accentuates the orange hairs covering it. It is covered in crystals, known as trichomes, which make for a fantastically potent and much-revered high. This strain is a staple strain for England’s weed smokers and has spawned many strains after it, including both Blue Cheese and Cheesedawg.
UK Cheese genetics
UK Cheese comes from a single-parent household, as it’s simply a phenotype of Skunk No. 1. This makes sense when you take a whiff of this strain, as you can just about smell where the Skunk has turned into cheese. It was originally created by Exodus, who are a collective based in the UK. England’s weed scene is all underground, and although it’s slowly surfacing, it doesn’t really have much besides UK Cheese to show in regards to popular strains.
UK Cheese THC level
The average hybrid has around 13% THC, which UK Cheese is almost exactly in line with. The average Cheese phenotype has around 14% THC, and the absolute maximum is 18%. This makes sense when you consider that the strain was created in 1990 when weed was generally much weaker.
UK Cheese price
This strain is not particularly expensive. That is mainly because so many seeds are available online. It is hard to find the exact seeds as they were from 1990. However, Royal Queen Seeds offers a perfectly good substitute, which allows people to grow their own. This generally drives the price down, and you’re looking at only spending around £8-10 a gram for this strain.
UK Cheese taste
UK Cheese has a truly unique taste, which many people absolutely adore. This strain has one of the most unique flavors, often referred to as cheese. It doesn’t actually taste like a hunk of cheddar, but the smell and taste needed a name and just like real cheese, this stuff absolutely pongs.
UK Cheese oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc.
It is possible to make any marijuana strain into oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc. That is because the process can be done in the comfort of your own home. However, you would have to have enough of the actual strain for this to be possible. You need a decent amount to make edibles, shatter, etc.
One of the best ways of getting a strong edible high from weed is using already vaped bud. That is because the weed is perfectly decarboxylated . As such, it’s very easy to vaporize marijuana, and then use the leftover bud to create a potent high. Be warned: this stuff is extremely strong, and you shouldn’t take too much. Another great advantage of this, which will be discussed more below, is that the weed itself will taste amazing inside a flower vape .We're sorry to inform you you're in the wrong spot if you're looking for cheddar cheese! UK Cheese, known for its smell and balanced high, is one of England's finest strains. We have it to thank for other tasty strains such as Blue Cheese, so read on to learn more about this great, euphoria-inducing strain!
UK Cheese: 50% Body / 50% Mind
The UK Cheese Strain Is A Balanced Hybrid
The name ‘UK Cheese’ is an ode to the strain’s birthplace. It is rumored to be a phenotype of Cheese that showed unusual, yet favorable uniqueness out of a pack of Sensi Seeds Skunk #1 that was grown in the hills of southern England (hence the UK in the name).
The phenotype had larger buds and a splendidly pungent cheese smell among other characteristics that set it apart. This plant of the Skunk #1 was cloned and renamed Cheese after its distinct smell.
Considering the Skunk #1 heritage of Afghanistan (Indica), Mexico (Sativa), Colombia (Sativa), we believe the original strain of Cheese (which is just a phenotype of Skunk #1 remember) can be regarded as a 50/50 Hybrid. This is because it has a near perfect blend of genetics to affect the body and mind equally.
The Legend Of The UK Cheese Strain
The legend of UK Cheese starts around the year of 1995, when a Cheese clone was passed on to an alternative community (group) by the name of, “Exodus,” who lived just north of London. This DIY culture group has been around in the UK since the 90’s, and is famous for their free community dance events, city farm, and social housing projects. Their free parties on weekends were known to attract thousands of people from all over.
“Many clones of the original UK Cheese were given out to travelers as gifts.”
However, their stance on marijuana is one of the things that caused them to have many problems with the law. The members of the collective protested UK law by outwardly growing and smoking marijuana in public.
With heavy traffic through the community, many clones of the original UK Cheese were given out to travelers as gifts.
Its budding notoriety in the UK caused Cheese clones to be passed around an extensive network of growers all throughout the 90’s. Cheese was a clone-only strain for some time, but many phenotypes of Cheese have surfaced since. It is believed by some that the original UK/Exodus phenotype is still floating around in the hands of the most senior of growers. It would be something special to get our hands on a bag of that medicine.
How Will The UK Cheese Strain Affect Me?
The particular batch of UK Cheese that we had was very sticky, to the point where it was a chore to break it up with our fingers. After resorting to a grinder, we took off the top to reveal a pungent smell that smacked us in the face. This was a one of a kind smell that could only be described as a mix of fresh berries and cheddar cheese.
“This was a one of a kind smell that could only be described as a mix of fresh berries and cheddar cheese.”
The taste is akin to the smell; it’s fruity with hints of berries, cheese, and undertones of skunk. Upon exhale, the flavors of skunk and cheese coat your mouth, and lingers between hits. This is when the cheese flavor is most noticeable. The smoke is potent, with a ‘stoned’ effect immediately settling in behind the eyes all the way down to our legs.
It’s 50% Indica and 50% Sativa lineage make the UK Cheese strain a perfect blend of body and mind. After two small bowls we experienced a severe case of ‘couch-lock’ accompanied by an uplifting, euphoric effect. We found it easy to focus and get work done after smoking UK Cheese. Nonetheless, you have no desire to move once you get settled in your chair.
UK Cheese is an ideal strain for patients seeking daytime pain, stress, and anxiety relief without the fear of crashing. It could also serve as an anti-depressant, as it puts you in high spirits after just one draw from the bong (no pun intended). UK Cheese remains one of our favorite Hybrid strains to medicate with during the day.
