Strain Review: Cheese Quake

A Euphoric and Sedating Experience

Hybrid strains are probably one of the most common you’ll likely come across these days, especially with the way breeders are trying to pair together certain effects – and Cheese Quake by TGA Seeds is definitely one of the most potent hybrids. It is often said to produce both indica and sativa effects better than either of its parent strains, Cheese and Querkle. Together they offer an extremely relaxing and euphoric effect that will easily leave you in dreamland if you aren’t careful.

What You Should Expect

This indica dominant hybrid strain is definitely one that you will want to get your hands on – it is a very potent strain with a THC content in the 20-25% range, on average. The buds are generally nice and round or pinecone shaped, with a backdrop of a vibrant green or a paler “Christmas tree with snow dust” shade. The brighter buds tend to have thick orange hairs throughout the entire bud and are often a little more compressed, while the lighter Christmas tree shade is blended with pale blues and purples – both are dusted with a nice layer of white frosty crystals.

When it comes to the aroma of this strain you simply cannot miss it with the distinctive aroma of the Cheese strain, accompanied by an almost grape scent. The smoke is smooth and it may taste less fruity and an earthier taste on the exhale, overall a very flavorful strain. It does hit you hard, but it doesn’t necessarily hit you quick – it is easy to over do it with this strain, so you will want to take it slower (maybe a joint instead of a whole blunt would do for this strain). It leaves you feeling relaxed and perhaps giggly, though likely rather tired.  

Medical Benefits

If you are using this strain for medicating, then you will find that it is best for evening use, unless you don’t have anywhere to be that day. The effects are especially useful for people suffering from chronic pain, anxiety, depression, loss of appetite and nausea. You won’t need much of this strain to make a difference and the effects will generally last a couple of hours. Due to its extremely effective sedating effect when used in slight excess, it is also an excellent choice for those suffering from insomnia.

For anyone hoping to grow their own Cheese Quake, you should know that the strain is pretty flexible and can be grown both indoors and outdoors (though obviously, for many reasons, indoor will be easier for most). It takes roughly 55-60 days for this strain to grow from seed to flower, and it always seems to offer a heavy yield. If you are looking to add a new indica to your garden, but still want some of the sativa effects, then this strain would be a wonderful addition.
