  1. Just letting you know that there are some mistakes on this page #1 is the negative reactions are the same as effects and #2 the INDICA / SATIVA % 40% / 60% INDOOR YIELD 40% / 60% are the same. i didn’t see any others

  2. In week six of flower , the smell is absolutly wonderful , the buds are thick and dense , and easy to grow I am a first time grower and could not have had a better exsperience . Uk cheese is the Queen

  3. UK Cheese is a good all rounder. I can vouch for it being pongy! Smoke – Smooth, strong, eases stress, can send me a little bit manic and distracted for a while, but it gets me up and about and interested in ‘doing’ stuff. A good all round sociable smoke; almost everyone likes a bit of cheese. Can be a bit heady and cause dry, itchy eyes. Helps alleviate stress and depression. Pain relief, not as good as some other strains I’ve tried, but helps with nausea and mood. Good for increasing appetite, have munchies, eye drops and water to hand.
    Got a Mrs Cheese on the go along with one Power Kush and four White Islands. Keeping a diary of sorts. Currently in fourth week of flower. Will try to post when I get myself more organised
