About this Hybrid Strain
The sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain named Head Cheese produces dense cone-shaped buds that are typically light green, covered with a frosty layer of crystal trichomes and sparse but vivid orange pistils. It gets its name from the sharp scent of cheese it emits, having undertones of both lemon and spice resonating within it. However, its taste is much more earthy than cheesy or citrusy.
Headcheese is the product of combining the genetics of two popular strains 707 Headband and UK Cheese. THC levels average around 25%, so novice consumers should go slow with this one as it might put you immediately to sleep or in couch-lock if you consume too much according to reviewers. Consumers say the effects of Head Cheese can offer relief from a variety of conditions such as migraines, inflammation, and aches or pains throughout the body’s muscles and joints. Though it’s sativa-dominant, this strain may sedate, so consuming in the evenings or at night is recommended. Both body and mind relax simultaneously as mood improves, and creativity blossoms before feelings of sleepiness overcome concentration.
Head Cheese is also a nice strain to try with friends as it can help inspire creative conversations. Some users report experiencing better focus, though this does fade as sleepiness takes over.
Cultivators say this strain may best be suited for more experienced growers. Whether raised indoor or outdoor, successful growers will be rewarded with buds ready for harvest after 9-10 weeks.
