NY Cheese Strain

NY Cheese built a reputation for its smoke. Its flavor, that of cheese blended with diesel, is distinct and unique. When smoked, it delivers a cerebral-focused high that leaves the brain abuzz with ideas. Truly, a great wake-and-bake strain.

Its mysterious past makes it even more enticing. To this day, neither its breeders nor its lineage have been released to the public. However, many speculate NY Cheese to be the offspring of two award-winning strains – NYC Diesel and Cheese.

Over the years, both have received various awards for their contributions to the cannabis community. NYC Diesel, for example, received five Cannabis Cup trophies for its strong mind and body high. Meanwhile, Cheese is a groundbreaking strain that introduced the dairy product’s flavors for the first time. Moreover, years of development have given it a stable effect among enthusiasts.

At up to 15%, NY Cheese’s recreational buzz is incredible. However, equally impressive is the reprieve it provides against a myriad of mental and physical issues afflicting users.

    For casual users, the initial onset paves the way for a productive day ahead. In clearing the mind, NY Cheese also inspires a surge of creativity that allows innovative solutions or profound ideas to flow freely. But, used to the limit of one’s tolerance, users will most likely be stunned by their own fast-paced thoughts.

    Gradually, a buzzing pressure ebbs down from behind the eyes. In waves, it flows to the rest of the body. With each toke, the soothing sensation loosens any tightness around the muscles so users may complete their tasks easily.


    NY Cheese smells of pungent cheese accented by notes of wet soil. Enhancing it is a refreshing hint of woody pine.


    Drawing in NY Cheese is like digging into a slice of cheese-filled New York pizza. The smoke, itself, is thick with sweet creamy undertones. On the exhale, it leaves a diesel aftertaste with obvious notes of pine.

    Adverse Reaction

    Marijuana, regardless of the strain, always the eyes. And with cannabinoids interfering with the production of saliva, users will most likely end up with a cottonmouth too.

    In such cases, it is best to have a drink. Not alcohol though as it increases the likelihood of greening out, a condition characterized by dizziness and possible paranoia. Highly caffeinated drinks are also out of the list. As a Sativa-leaning strain, NYC Diesel has powerful cerebral effects. If anything, pairing the two can only lead to heightened levels of anxiety. Downing a glass or two of water, however, will keep such symptoms of dehydration away.


    While it is likely that a number of people use NY Cheese for recreation, the strain retains enough chemical compounds to be of value to medical users as well.

    Its mood-enhancing effects, for example, help patients with depression temporarily manage their mental illness by inducing a clearheaded high. Without self-depreciating thoughts, users are motivated to pursue their happiness.

      Cultivating NY Cheese can be quite finicky. Because of its Sativa structure, both its stalks and branches are quite thin. Moreover, its branches require support as they break off easily from either the weight of its heavy buds or a strong burst of wind.

      For this reason, many prefer growing their strain indoors. While it yields better outdoors, sudden changes in weather or pests can hamper the plant’s growth. Inside controlled environments, however, growers can easily adjust important factors such as lighting, temperature, and humidity.

      Height management techniques such as bending and early topping will keep the plant short. Meanwhile, using organic mediums like soil will bring out its full flavors.

      Flowering Time


      It takes NY Cheese anywhere between 10 to 12 weeks to blossom. However, awaiting the patient growers is an abundant yield of 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter.


      Outdoor grown NY Cheese blossoms between the second week of October to the first week of November. Each plant yields more than 16 ounces of buds.
