Edible delicacy or cannabis, the name “Head Cheese” never really sounds that appealing, but a name can’t take away from the profile of Head Cheese marijuana, a potent strain that few can contend with.
First things first — Head Cheese cannabis should be enjoyed in moderation. Some plants from this strain have been clocked at upwards of 30% THC, meaning it’s one of the strongest on the market and unique in its own savory way. The initial effects of the sativa-dominant strain are an overwhelming head rush that many would call happy and euphoric, instantly uplifting the mood and stimulating the creative flow.
Eventually, the indica side wins out, ushering in a couch-lock that will soothe the body and release tension from stress, anxiety, and depression. Despite this, Head Cheese is not necessarily recommended for medicinal purposes, though it might prove useful for patients suffering from pain, inflammation and muscle spasms, and it might relieve some symptoms associated with depression and stress.
If you are a fan of cheesy strains, Head Cheese should be up your alley, as it does have a distinct fragrance of the gooey golden goodness, often accompanied by an earthy scent that becomes stronger when cured buds are broken apart. Its flavor is purely Cheese, though the creaminess of its original taste gives way to diesel and skunk notes, tinged with citrus fruits.
Head Cheese marijuana seeds prefer a warm, humid climate, and growers who have experience with different stress-training techniques will find their rather short plants produce a higher yield when cared for correctly. After 9 to 10 weeks of flowering, your Head Cheese nugs will be ready for harvest and offer up an above-average yield of cheesy, skunky buds that may make your wine-loving friends envious.
