Super Cheese is an indica-dominant hybrid with a legacy that follows in the tradition of Dutch cannabis breeding. This pungent strain was created by Positronics, breeders of strains like Blue Rhino and Critical 47, and crosses the genetics of staple strain Cheese with the distinct phenotype Exodus Cheese. What results is a skunky, acrid bud with a holistic, well-balanced high. Super Cheese’s Thc content has been measured at between 15% and 25%.
Super Cheese is marked by medium-sized, solid flowers that hold an elongated, almost cylindrical shape. These buds have the dense structure associated with other indica-dominant varieties, with leaves curled tightly inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a vibrant shade of spring green and are twisted through with brown and orange pistils. Frequently, phenotypes of Super Cheese also boast patches of purple in their leaves; these surprising hues come about when high concentrations of the pigment anthocyanin are stimulated by cold weather during the growing process. Finally, translucent white trichomes cover the buds’ complex network of nooks and crannies, accounting for the strain’s potency and making it very hard to break up by hand.
There’s no mistaking the lineage of this aptly-named strain. A quick inspection reveals the strong, tangy odor of sharp cheese. A closer sniff hints as some fermented, almost moldy notes, making the aroma similar to that of cousin strain Blue Cheese. Grinding up Super Cheese’s dense buds gives off some dank, musky scents. When this pungent strain is combusted in a pipe or a joint, it burns with a harsh and stinky smoke that may tickle the palate or make the eyes water. On the exhale, this smoke leaves behind a lingering taste of cheese, along with some skunky fumes.
Super Cheese’s high doesn't appear until some time after smokers have recovered from their distaste or coughing fits. The first observable effects may be an increased pulse behind the eyes and around the temples; many also report an increase in salivation. These physical tics soon progress into a full body high. Smokers may feel their limbs and eyelids grow more and more weighty while at the same time, a ringle rolls down through the body, dissipating muscular tension and facilitating deep and easy breathing. For the uninitiated, this body high can be so strong as to trigger feelings of dissociation or depersonalization. Such trippy effects are often intensified by Super Cheese’s changes in sensory perception -- certain sights and sounds may take on new dimensions, while depth perception can be notably distorted. Super Cheese comes with only a subtle head high, more characterized by a tendency to think in freely-associative patterns than by any uptick in rational, intensely cerebral thinking. Instead, enjoy this bud as a good way to have some giddy, rowdy conversations with like-minded friends. Alternatively, smoke Super Cheese before kicking back for some much-needed solo time. Because it is more sedative than mentally stimulating, this strain is best reserved for nighttime use; if consumed during the day, it’s likely to derail an agenda or any outstanding responsibilities.
Super Cheese can also have many benefits for medical cannabis patients. Its smooth, soothing attitude may temporarily relieve some symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. Meanwhile, its action on the body can numb pain, whether it’s chronic and disease-related, or more minor, like headaches and nausea. For some, Super Cheese can stoke hunger, making it a good supplement for those who have lost their appetite to disease or to treatments like chemotherapy. Finally, in high enough doses, this potent strain can work against insomnia, pulling users into a deep, restful sleep. Because it is unlikely to trigger the kind of recursive thinking that can lead to paranoia. Super Cheese is a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Positronics have made seeds of Super Cheese available for sale online. Once obtained, it can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Plants have a short and bushy silhouette and are easily accommodated indoors. Super Cheese flowers within a brief 7 to 8 weeks and offers a solid yield of about 32 to 37 grams (1.1 to 1.3 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant. Finally, indoors growers should be sure to keep their operations discreet by investing in odor control measures, as Super Cheese can be an extremely pungent crop.
Super Cheese’s long-lasting potency proves that sometimes a so-called acquired taste is worth acquiring. This bud is a must-try for fans of knockout indicas.
