Packed the bowl with some shredded UK Cheese buds for a late afternoon session. I've heard a lot about these buds, stoked to have some to sample. I can see why despite the Mac & Cheese scent, the UK Cheese strain is a top strain for many - solid body stone with a non hazy mind, cheerful euphoria, kind effects. Tastes like sweet dank citrus pine with a lightly spicy terpene zest. I'd smoke these UK Cheese buds for a laid back morning, afternoon, or evening.
UK CHEESE Indica hybrid
The UK Cheese 80/20 Indica hybrid strain was developed in the British Isles with the inbreeding of Skunk #1, traditionally a Sativa-dominant strain. The UK Cheese is considered a 80/20 Indica dominant, but the effects are more balance (Source). These buds have 22% THC, notable terpene amounts of Linalool 1.78%, Caryophyllene 1.32%, Humulene 0.98%, alpha-Pinene 0.84%, and Caryophyllene oxide 0.35% (Source).
UK Cheese Looks
These UK Cheese buds look the part with thick mats of long bright and pale orange pistils. Vibrant greens with a thick coating of pale yellowish trichomes. Decent bud structure, i'll give these buds a 3 out of 5 on the fluff scale.
UK Cheese Smell
I'm not a big fan of the Mac & Cheese smell, so I'll admit that i didn't breath in too deeply after catching a whiff of these UK Cheese buds lol. They do smell like Mac & Cheese, slightly earthy if you get close enough. Strong scented, i could smell them from the other room - luckily from that distance it just smelled like dank weed. These buds don't taste like they smell to me though - sweet dank thick smoke, light citrus and pine with a touch of spice, very nice.
UK Cheese itself is indica-dominant, with a sativa/indica ratio of 20:80, but the effects are balanced, delivering both a head and body high. It's a potent strain, with THC levels topping out at about 20%, and it's known to hit fast and hard. The effects are intensely euphoric, with an upbeat, happy mood, some laziness, and a dose of creativity. Best used to treat pain and stress, UK Cheese is also an effective way to alleviate insomnia and depression. -- Cottonmouth and dry eyes are common side effects, and paranoia, headaches, and dizziness are also reported.

UK Cheese Flavor
First Toke... Dank, sweet, spicy terpenes tingling the throat and nose - mouth is numbing, eyes watering a little. Mind relaxed, cheeks numbing. Second Toke... Very bright citrus, pine, a lot of zest, a little spice - mouth and throat numbing more, cheeks tingling, eyes watering slightly. A lot of zesty terpenes in this UK Cheese. Thick and dank smoke with that sparkle.
UK Cheese Effects
5 Minutes After First Toke... Mind and body cushioned and lightly energetic - a slightly buzzing and cushioned energy building in the chest, euphoria building in the mind.
Third Toke... Thick dank and sweet smoke, light citrus with pine, plenty of terpenes, spice and tingling - upper cheeks tightening from perma-grin euphoria.
10 Minutes After First Toke, Fourth Toke... More sweet citrus pine dank. Mind well cushioned, slightly energetic - solid stone. Lips and face tingling, solid stone but the mind is solid - not lethargic or scattered.
20 Minutes After First Toke... Solid buzz, social, cheerful - eye lids are very lightly relaxed, but just under the eyes is puffy. Head is well cushioned but the mind is not hazy.
30 Minutes After First Toke... The Indica side is approaching, energy and effects have smoothed out - eye lids relaxed, laid back. Energy lightly bubbling up from the solar plexus, perma-grin.
1 Hour After First Toke... Solid effects still - kind, relaxed, cushioned, smooth euphoric energy. Enjoying the buzz.
2 Hours After First Toke...
