When people say “the apple doesn’t fall from the tree”, everyone else would immediately have certain expectations from a child based on what they know about that child’s parents.
The same is true in breeding marijuana. The initial goal of breeding certain varieties of cannabis is to hopefully bring out the best qualities of two individual strains and develop a new one that will reflect those qualities.
So, what does one get from crossing two award-winning cannabis strains?
Naturally, the child strain should embody what its parents are individually known for.
Sometimes, depending on what specific qualities the breeder intends to highlight, these attributes can range from the color of its buds, the degree of its potency, the strength of its high or those unique flavors and aroma that are distinctive only to a certain lineage.
To give a more concrete example, let us look into one particular cannabis variety that descended from two of the most highly recognized strains in the world of cannabis.
This strain has evidently inherited its parent’s strong and rich aroma and flavors that are accompanied by strong yet well-balanced high. This strain is known as the Chiesel.
The Chiesel strain is said to be a result of crossing two award-winning strains, the Big Buddha and the NYC Diesel.
It was in 2008 when the strain was first made available for public consumption and for growing purposes.
The name Chiesel is obviously a play on words derived from the names of its parent strains: Cheese and Diesel. Thus, the name Chiesel.

Given the distinct aromas of NYC Diesel and Big Buddha Cheese, it is not surprising to know that Chiesel has the same pungent smell of cheese and diesel that ultimately produces a combination of the classic skunk and citrus scents of the two equally aromatic parents.
The overall flavor of Chiesel also represents its parents very well.
To wit, it boasts of a combination of diesel and cheese flavors with a tinge of citrus that becomes more evident when the strain is smoked.

The fact that no strain can ever go without the slightest possibility of causing any form of adverse reaction leads to the discussion about this particular strain’s negative side-effects.
Having dry mouth is apparently a popular issue among Chiesel smokers.
Some of them might even experience dry eyes simultaneously.
Other known adverse reactions such as anxiety, dizziness, and headaches are also possible but less likely.

Nonetheless, growers should be motivated by the fact that Chiesel has a great potential of producing a bountiful harvest when grown properly under the best conditions.
As for the flowering time of Chiesel indoors, growers may need around 9 to 10 weeks before one can start harvesting the strain.
