Skunk No. 1
UK Cheese first cropped up in a British commune in the 1990s. It's become famous for its unique cheesy aroma and well-balanced hybrid high.

This strain is a backcross of the legendary Exodus Cheese. As the story goes, a commune in the UK found an extra stinky cut of Skunk No. 1. The plant in question had an extra creamy, cheesy aroma, so they kept it around. The strain later found its way to breeders who backcrossed the original strain to make seeds. Hence, UK Cheese was born.

In reality, UK Cheese is a particular phenotype of Skunk No. 1. Yet, this hybrid is known for its exceptionally well-balanced effects. This strain may lean toward sativa-dominant, but it's the perfect treat for both mind and body. Expect a clear-headed mental relaxation and ample relief from bodily pain.

Medical consumers have found that this strain works well for muscle spasms. It also does a number on a headache or a migraine. Of course, this easygoing strain is perfect for reducing stress after a busy workday. Though, if you're new to cannabis, you might find UK Cheese to be a bit strong. The THC content in this strain can reach as high as 23%.
