Cheese, as it’s also known, is perhaps the most famous marijuana strain to emerge from the British Isles. English farmers created this strain by inbreeding Skunk #1, a sativa-dominant hybrid. UK Cheese itself is Indica-dominant, with a ratio of 80:20, but the effects are balanced, delivering both a head and body high. The effects are intensely euphoric, with an upbeat, happy mood, some laziness, and a dose of creativity. Best used to treat pain and stress, UK Cheese is also an effective way to alleviate insomnia and depression. CBD levels are low, less than 1%, so this isn’t a good choice for patients with seizures or other disorders that respond to CBD. Cottonmouth and dry eyes are common side effects, and paranoia, headaches, and dizziness are also reported. Fittingly, this strain smells and tastes like cheese, with a pungent earthy aroma.
