Cannabis Strain Review – Cheese x Northern Lights
Cheese x Northern Lights.
Appearance. The State of these flowers is down to the fact Prohibition means the cultivation of cannabis is always going to be in the hands of the Black market, which has in this case had an effect of the quality of the Buds. Firstly it came very wet, loosing at least 1/3rd of its weight while drying, which i had to do for it to burn as i smoke my medicine pure ( so should you if you currently use tobacco :p !). she also came completely untrimmed with some of the fan leaf still on and as much stalk as possible, i lost a further ¼ of the weight of the remaining Plant material to Trimming, which aggravates me majorly. After taking off the fan leaves and drying, i was left with some nice looking and pretty solid buds, which some nice shades of deep greens marbled throughout its structure. There are some creamy brown hairs but from the look of the trichomes this has been an early harvest!
Aroma/Flavour. After a cure for a week ( its all i could manage) undoubtedly it smelt amazing, with that stinky earthy pungent tone from the cheese overwhelming your nostrils from quite a distance, there’s a fruity high note flavour which is tasty. Tastes really good, definitely closer to the cheese then the NL in terms of taste.
Effects. Heady and short lived a definite early harvest which is a shame as if left for a few extra weeks to develop those amber trichomes, it would have been much better medicine, still there was moderate symptom relief after smoking.
Comments. What a disappointment! I just wonder how nice this would have been if left to finish as the flavour was great and the bud once trimmed looked very nice.
