Tips for growing Cheese cannabis
This article is presented by Advanced Nutrients, a global company raising the bud weights and reputations of cannabis growers since 1999.
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/0utdoor: 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.

Basic / Breeders Info
Cheese is a mostly indica variety from Dinafem and can be cultivated indoors (where the plants will need a flowering time of ±55 days ) and outdoors . Dinafems Cheese is a THC dominant variety and is/was only available as feminized seeds.
Dinafems Cheese Description
Its intense, long-lasting and aromatically Indica taste of cheese is reminiscent of a strong, well-cured, vintage cheese.
The coat of crystals covering the flowers of this fragrant variety is dense enough to induce you to smoke. It produces a well-balanced effect, mixing both physical and cerebral sensations. With an 8-week flowering time and lush heavy harvests, no wonder all the coffee-shops in Amsterdam regard it so highly and it has received such numerous awards in the High Times Cannabis Cup, not to mention the tens of thousands of “Brits” that are crazy about this strain.
Despite looking kind of languid, with long outstretched leaves and slim stalks, legacy of its skunk predecessors, the buds it produces are thick and plentiful and, when exposed to the adequate low temperatures, obtain a light violet colour.
It can be classified as a highly commercial strain, comparable to Big Bud, Skunk#1, Power Plant, or Critical+, varieties that are as heavy-yielding, quick and compact as Cheese is.
Blend: Indica 60% – Sativa 40%
THC: Medium – High. (9% – 14%)
Flowering period: 50-60 days
Outdoor harvests: Until 15 October
Height outdoors: Up to 2,5 mts
Genotype: Old School UK Skunk x Afghani

CrazyGrandpa – 17.05.2017
I’ve grown this 2 different times from clones that were taken from 2 separate single seed starts. Both times they were grown in an Ebb and Grow hydro system with 5 gallon pots. 15 pots, 5 pots to a 1K DE HPS on a light rail. Room was 20 x 30 with an 8′ ceiling.
The first grow I had pheno number 3. I topped the plants once, then did a few LST bends, noting that there wasn’t going to be a lot of side branching, so I let it flower with about 10 tops per plant. It stretched immediately, and continued into the 5th week of flower. I lollipopped them twice in veg, then the first week of flower, and at the third week of flower. I ended up with buds about 50 cm long, all the buds the same size and density all the way up the stem. Out of 5 plants I yielded 22 ounces, which was amazing since it didn’t look like it was going to be that productive. The buds are rock hard, which accounted for the weight. Even though they’re really solid, they didn’t get big enough in diameter to cause mold issues. I thought it was going to be a far lower weight. These went about 67 days.
The second grow the plants were very short and stocky, with multiple side branches after topping the main cola once, then doing about 4 weeks of LST with lots of side branches. When put into flower they had about 20 tops per plant. Even after a very heavy lollipop pruning at week 3, the plants continued to need pruning through the 6th week. Stems just seemed to come out of nowhere! These finished about a week quicker than pheno 3, at about 54 days. Again, the buds were rock hard, with a yield of 36 ounces.
I have to say, this was one of my most gratifying grows as far as quality of the bud, both in smell, taste, and bag appeal(although this doesn’t matter to me as it’s all for in home consumption). The bud, after curing, was like little balls of hash. Very, very resinous, with a candy like smell, combined with a nice spicy Afghanistan smell. The taste was pure Afghani, very hashy and powerful. A bowl seems like it lasts a lifetime since it’s so sticky.
I used H&G nutrients, excluding the Amino treatment. I’ve used it before and noticed zero benefit. At the end of the 5th week of flower I hit them hard with Fox Farms Cha Ching. I used that in place of the finishing nutrients from H&G. They were 170 US for 5 packets, with a suggested feeding of 8 packets over the next 3 weeks. Cha Ching was 24 US for a pound, which will last for 4-5 grows. Not only was the Cha Ching that much cheaper, but it resulted in the frostiest buds I’ve ever had. I used it out of desperation the first time, out of admiration for the results the second time. Cheaper sometimes IS better!
bronsolinio – 29.11.2015
Stabile Sorte, leicht zu growen mit einem extensiven Potential für alle Arten des Bondage, ScrOG, LST und Multi Cropping.
Konnte zwei untereinander sehr homogene Phänotypen feststellen.
#1 wächst sehr buschig & indicalastig, Topping kann helfen die Pflanze auseinander zu ziehen und eine gleichmäßige Fotosynthese zu gewährleisten. Der Stretch ist nicht allzu extrem & das Harz bildet ein komplexes Geruchsgebilde aus Diesel, süßer Mandarine & Zuckerwatte mit Anklängen von Kardamon. Der Geschmack ist nach 4 Wochen Curing nahezu identisch, das High sehr stark aber auch sedativ.
#2 ist zumindest der Struktur nach zu urteilen der sativalastigere Phänotyp. Sie wächst ausufernder, mit deutlich größerem Internodienabstand & mehr Stretch. Ihre Blüten sehen aus wie kleine, silverne Pyramiden, sehr kompakt, der erste Eindruck erinnert an saftig süße Ananas die einem das Wasser im Mund zusammen laufen lässt. Die süße Kopfnote wird begleitet von einer waldigen, nussigen Herznote und Anklängen von Pfeffer & Muskat. Definitiv mein Favorit, aber vom High her auch wieder sehr drückend, Munchies und Couch sind vorprogrammiert.
Selbst in Gesellschaft kam es zu ruhigen Minuten da man sehr introvertiert reagiert.
MedicalScreener – 17.08.2014
This strain was great. Very Strong!!
I crossed Cheese with a White Widow back cross. The result about 24-30 seeds.
I flowered them ALL. Choose one female!
Then grew out Ripped Bubba from TGA Seeds. I got ONE(1) Male out of 10 SEEDS . The result if it;s pollen . are Very Strong ! I pollinated the White Widow X Cheese cross with the Ripped Bubba Pollen. The Result was a great taste and cerebral high. Thus the Name: Arctic Haze.
The plants in cocoa (DWC) tasted like Lemons. Advanced Nutes
The plants grown in Soil tasted like Pepsi/vanilla-Cann Nutes Terra
One other pheno was an orange/lemon cross.I use Sugar Daddy in DWC (Deep Water culture). I use Kona Blend (Nitrozyme, Hygrozyme and Humboldt Honey)with soil as well as Carb Load by Advanced Nutes.
I use one 1000W HPS in a 4×4 tent.
