Just as there are many different types of cheese, there are many different strains of cannabis that have a smell or taste of cheese. The cheese cannabis strains can largely be traced back to UK breeders of high quality skunk. Many of these became known for their sharp, fruity, and sour cheese smell. In order to be considered a true cheese strain, it must contain skunk genetics.
Amongst the best known cheese strains is Blue Cheese, which has a high level of THC and a smell similar to gorgonzola. Another is Big Buddha Cheese, which won the HTCC in 2006. However, there are far more cheese cannabis strains to discover and whether you prefer cheddar, Red Leicester, brie, or any other kind of cheese, you are sure to find the perfect strain.
