When we got our pack of samples from CURE, this was the one that were least excited to try based on the appearance alone. It just didn’t seem to be anything special at all, with a standard green coloration and not many trichomes visible to the naked eye. A shaggy manicure in spots also added to this impression… However, when magnified, the fat-headed trichomes became more visible and the sample’s lack of grow flaws came to light — no seeds, no hermie bananas, and no signs of stress. Though the harvest seemed a little bit early (not many ambers at all), it didn’t seem to affect the potency much, given the rather high FSL cannabinoid test numbers.
The high point of this strain for sure, the aroma was a wonderfully pungent mix of sweet blueberry and sharp, musky, putrid elements… which, yes, can be described as smelling like cheese. It’s a very strange and unique taste that you really only find in Cheese strains — alternately appealing and revolting, like many fine cheeses. This seemed blueberry-dominant though, with a pervading sweetness and berry kick that ruled over the UK Cheese.
The taste took on more of the cheese elements than the smell did, while the berry sweetness fell to the background. One reviewer commented that there was even an iron/mineral-like taste, similar to what is found in very “goaty” cheeses, while others mainly picked up on peppery, sharp notes. The sweetness was still present, but the sharp tastes were stronger for sure. The smoke itself was rather smooth though expansive, making us cough at times — the final ash was a very light flecked gray, which indicated a quality flush.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Mental and physical relaxation, stress relief, mood elevation, possible joint pain/arthritis relief (warm, tingly hands that struggled to form a fist), and sleep aid properties at higher doses.
Some of the staff had never tried a Blue Cheese before, while others had — either way, this one is now our favorite Blue Cheese, and most of the staff wanted to go get some for themselves after the reviews were over. That is generally a sign of a pretty quality sample, especially given that it was low on the totem pole in terms of looks and overall appeal. The smell is something that some people will absolutely love and other will simply like, but it’s very pungent and appealing. There were no real flaws in the grow despite the drab outside appearance, and the overall potency was top-notch. We recommend this med heartily as a late day/early evening type of thing for unwinding after a day of stress — it won’t kill severe pain, but eased most daily tensions. The relaxing and positive mental state can lead into restful sleep depending on timing and dosage. Great debut from a new shop!
