U.K. Cheese is a very unique strain tasting of cheese and sour berries. Upon exhale, you may even notice a slight flavor of supermarket cheese puffs. Though it sounds pretty strange, it’s a one-of-a-kind flavor that you can’t find anywhere else. Besides its taste, U.K. Cheese offers its users a relaxing and euphoric high that can help with creativity all the while.
The nicely balanced though sometimes indica-dominant hybrid strain dubbed UK Cheese was named after its cheesy scent and breeding origin. It’s a phenotype of the well known Skunk #1 and was first bred by Exodus in the early 90’s. Not surprisingly, this strain also goes by the name of Exodus Cheese.
Its taste is unexpectedly sweet, with hints of spices and berries as well as the anticipated cheese flavor.
Cured nuggets of the UK Cheese strain are a beautiful display of color, as its light green flowers are tinged with blues that are lightened by the frosty layer of trichomes it produces. Slight shades of violet can be spotted, and vivid copper pistils wind their way throughout its flowers.

If you’re looking for information about cheddar cheese then you’re definitely in the wrong place. UK Cheese is one of the most, if not the only, famous weed strains that hails from England. It has potent, balanced effects. It was originally created in 1990 by the UK collective group Exodus (and is hence also known as Exodus Cheese). This strain doesn’t actually smell like real cheese, but it does have the ‘cheese’ smell which has become so popular across the world.
UK cheese genetics
UK Cheese comes from a single-parent household, as it’s simply a phenotype of Skunk No. 1. This makes sense when you take a whiff of this strain, as you can just about smell where the Skunk has turned into cheese. It was originally created by Exodus, who are a collective based in the UK. England’s weed scene is all underground, and although it’s slowly surfacing, it doesn’t really have much besides UK Cheese to show in regards to popular strains.
The average hybrid has around 13% THC, which UK Cheese is almost exactly in line with. The average Cheese phenotype has around 14% THC, and the absolute maximum is 18%. This makes sense when you consider that the strain was created in 1990 when weed was generally much weaker.
UK cheese taste
UK Cheese has a truly unique taste, which many people absolutely adore. This strain has one of the most unique flavors, often referred to as cheese. It doesn’t actually taste like a hunk of cheddar, but the smell and taste needed a name and just like real cheese, this stuff absolutely pongs.
It is possible to make any marijuana strain into oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc. That is because the process can be done in the comfort of your own home. However, you would have to have enough of the actual strain for this to be possible. You need a decent amount to make edibles, shatter, etc.
One of the best ways of getting a strong edible high from weed is using already vaped bud. That is because the weed is perfectly decarboxylated. As such, it’s very easy to vaporize marijuana, and then use the leftover bud to create a potent high. Be warned: this stuff is extremely strong, and you shouldn’t take too much. Another great advantage of this, which will be discussed more below, is that the weed itself will taste amazing inside a flower vape.
UK cheese price
This strain is not particularly expensive. That is mainly because so many seeds are available online. It is hard to find the exact seeds as they were from 1990. However, Royal Queen Seeds offers a perfectly good substitute, which allows people to grow their own. This generally drives the price down, and you’re looking at only spending around £8-10 a gram for this strain.
UK cheese yield
The yield of this strain is about 60 grams per plant for an indoor grow, and up to 600g per plant outdoors. This is a significant difference, but it’s much harder to have a good successful growth outside than it is inside.
UK Cheese is a perfectly balanced hybrid adored across the world for its ‘cheese’ smell and taste. It is also lauded for its effects, which have become incredibly popular over the years. This strain should be smoked through a flower vape, as this gives not only the best taste but also the best experience. Furthermore, you can use the already vaped bud to have a second, far more potent high.
