Named for its sharply sour aroma, Cheese is an indica-dominant hybrid from the U.K. that has achieved widespread popularity for its unique flavor and consistent potency. With origins that stretch back to the late 1980s, Cheese is said to descend from a Skunk #1 phenotype whose pungent aroma made it stand out. Breeders like Big Buddha Seeds later introduced Afghani indica genetics to increase Cheese’s trichome

Not everyone must have heard of a certain meat product (yes, it is not a type of cheese) called Head Cheese. But, it really does exist and has different names depending on which country we are talking about. This delicacy is actually a meat jelly that is commonly made with flesh from the head of a pig. While the brain, eyes, and ears are typically removed, the tongue is usually included.
As peculiar as that sounds, the cannabis world is so fortunate to have a strain with the same namesake yet is reminiscent more of an actual cheese than a meat-flavored jelly. Indeed, Head Cheese marijuana strain is a delicious weed that offers an impressive potency to its users. It appears that the similarity in their names was more of an unfortunate coincidence.
Nonetheless, it is obviously better to talk about the Head Cheese strain than the Head Cheese meat jelly. So, here are some of the important details about this strain that should convince prospective users that it is nowhere near its cold cut meat alternate.
Although not a single connoisseur can pinpoint the original breeder of the strain, everybody in the cannabis community can all agree that the strain has one of the most impressive lineage among all hybrids. In fact, Head Cheese is the child strain of two powerhouses, the 707 Headband, and the UK Cheese.
It is believed that UK Cheese makes up most of Head Cheese’s genetics which results to its overall profile being closely reminiscent to the said parent.

Either way, the strain is certainly a tough act to follow.
