U.K. Cheese is also known as Exodus Cheese and has large, fluffy buds that adhere in an elongated, roughly cylindrical shape. The flowers’ loose, sativa-like leaves spiral off of their calyxes. It’s a hybrid strain that originated with British breeders Exodus. When cured, these leaves are typically a dark shade of forest green and are twisted through with orange and brown pistils. Finally, a relatively sparse coating of sticky trichomes covers these buds and gives them a wet, dewy appearance.
This strain is notoriously pungent – it gives off a powerfully tangy and slightly sweet odor, like aged blue cheese. Breaking the buds apart yields more damp, earthy notes. These contrasting scents make for a strong, sour taste that some users describe as unpleasant. After exhale, a sharp tang may linger on the palate. Those consuming in public should note that U.K. Cheese can be a very pungent strain whose odor may carry; anyone concerned with maintaining discretion should take the necessary precautions.
U.K. Cheese can also have several benefits for medical cannabis patients. Psychologically, it can provide temporary relief from the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. The physical effects of U.K. Cheese are said to relieve pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to serious conditions like lupus. Many also report relief from everyday irritations like indigestion or recurring headaches. Because its mental effects are more hazy than intense and cerebral, U.K. Cheese can be a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
