Head Cheese Strain Review


The popularity of the Head Cheese strain is probably due to its super-high potency levels. Despite the fact that high levels of THC are prevalent in many cannabis strains, Head Cheese is some of the most potent cannabis on the market.

Head Cheese Strain Review

When consumed, Head Cheese provides an extremely fast high that can sometimes catch the user off guard, which is one of the reasons why it is not generally advised as an appropriate strain choice for those who are just getting started and may have a weak cannabis tolerance.

Head Cheese is pretty damn potent, with THC percentages ranging from the mid-to-high 20s. The high begins quickly and is dominated by a strong head high that is generally described as pleasant, uplifting, or euphoric.

The first high gives way to more usual indica effects of relaxation and serenity.

What Is Head Cheese Strain?

Head Cheese is a Sativa-dominant hybrid with a strong cheesy aroma and flavour that evolves into diesel and kush. Head Cheese buds are thick and chunky, with a lot of trichome covering.

Easy to grow, with good yields in 9-10 weeks inside. Head Cheese is useful for medicinal and recreational purposes during the day and evening.

Head Cheese is a genetic combination of the Headband strain and UK Cheese.Head Cheese offers a wide range of applications for medicinal cannabis patients, just as recreational users enjoy both the mental and physical effects.

Its thought-provoking, mood-altering properties can provide relief from the distressing symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression.

How Was Head Cheese Developed?

Of the hundreds upon hundreds of weed strains found in dispensaries across the country, Head Cheese is thought to have one of the most striking and distinct origins.

Head Cheese was developed by crossing two incredibly potent strains: UK Cheese and 707 Headband.

However, the cannabinoid and terpene profile of Head Cheese is more similar to that of the UK Cheese parent, leading many to conclude that this bud is responsible for the majority of Head Cheese’s qualities.


This strain has a cheesy flavor with notes of spice and fruit intertwined throughout. It contains a high concentration of THC and has a variety of medical purposes, including pain reduction, muscle spasms, and inflammation.

The Head Cheese strain appears to be named after an unpleasant sounding meat product rather than a cheese item. The aroma prepares you for a real delight, and the flavor does not let you down.

On the inhale, you’ll get a strong cheese flavor, but on the exhale, you’ll be shocked by the pleasant citrusy flavor.

Odor And Flavor

When it comes to scent, the Head Cheese marijuana strain does not disappoint. You can smell cheese right away, but there’s a lot more going on after you get past the savory flavor.

When you break up the nugs, you’ll notice an earthy aroma with overtones of citrus and lemon. The fragrance is so strong that it might sting your eyes, and it completely fills a space.

Physical Appearance

The green buds on this strain are exceptionally big and frequently break down into little nugs by the time you see them in your local dispensary.

The emerald green blossoms contrast well with the vivid orange pistils. The buds are conical in form and covered in sticky trichomes.

When it’s time to harvest, Head Cheese appears crystallized. Your fingers will be covered in sticky trichomes when you break the nugs apart with your palms. Your fingers, on the other hand, will not be as sticky as they would be with many Indica strains.

Grow Info

We do not recommend growing this strain if you are inexperienced. If you have the necessary experience, you can cultivate Head Cheese both indoors or outdoors. Those who want to grow this strain outside must do so in a humid climate.

Additionally,  you’ll need to ensure that the daily temperature ranges between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, to guarantee maximum growth.

If your plants thrive in normal outside conditions, your crop should be ready to harvest by October. It produces a large amount of fruit per plant, up to 24 ounces.

When growing Head Cheese indoors, it is critical to trim its huge fan leaves to ensure that sufficient light and air reach the bottom branches.

Pruning can help you increase the yield and quality of your produce. You can help your plant develop quicker if you know which branches to prune.

By removing redundant branches and leaves, you help the plant to shift its resources to the high-quality buds that receive enough light.

As well as removing fan leaves, consider pruning any withering leaves caused by a lack of light, branches low on the plants that receive little light, and bud sites that are not growing due to a lack of light.

Head Cheese usually flowers within 9-10 weeks when grown indoors and yields up to 20 ounces every square meter planted.


Head Cheese marijuana makes you feel calm, ecstatic, uplifted, giggly, and cheerful. It may also help in the treatment of the following medical symptoms: stress, depression, pain, headaches, and inflammation. 

Side Effects

Unsurprisingly, the most prevalent side effects of Head Cheese marijuana have been found to be dry mouth, dry eyes, and anxiety. If you are having these symptoms, drink plenty of fluids and keep hydrated.

Medical Appointments

Head Cheese is a popular medicinal marijuana strain for folks seeking pain relief due to its tremendous strength. It is reported to be particularly useful if you have muscle spasms or significant inflammation.

Because Head Cheese might improve your mood, it is sometimes taken by patients suffering from depression and stress. It may help you have a more positive attitude on life and alleviate your worries.

New marijuana users, on the other hand, would be better off starting with a weaker strain.

Similar Strains

Of course, Head Cheese shares a lot of its properties with its two parent strains; Headband and UK Cheese. However, many users also report that it shares some similarities with the following strains; LA Sunshine, Sequoia Strawberry, and Skunk.
