Tips for Growing Cheese Cannabis

Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and Botanicare are teaming up on a series of grow guides that will equip you with all the tips and tricks you need to grow different strains successfully.


Strain Overview: Originating in England around the 1980s, Cheese is known for its savory cheese aroma and well-rounded high. Big Buddha Seeds are known to have the best Cheese genetics available. They bring a pure Afghani indica into old Cheese genetics to create a powerful plant that still has all the unique Cheese characteristics.

Grow Techniques: Cheese grows bushy, which makes it a great candidate for SCROG (screen of green), as you can trellis the plants to increase the yield. It performs well either in soil or hydro, and is a friendly plant for novice growers.

Flowering Time: 8-9 weeks

Yield: Moderate to high

Grow Difficulty: Easy

Climate: Best kept between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit. This strain can handle humidity fluctuations.

Indoor/Outdoor: Cheese grows best indoors where it can be in a warmer climate. If you live in a warmer, more humid climate, try growing Cheese outside.

Feeding: Cheese doesn’t have many unique feeding requirements, so just make sure to feed your plant moderately.
