Gimmick shoppers will not be disappointed. Ground, the scent is even stronger, a fruity whiff of blueberry mellowed by the lingering cheese. The dense buds are small and pale green, sometimes with a bluish tint, covered in crystals and the occasional hair. The batch I tasted had an overabundance of stems, but that is not indicative of the stain in general.
When smoked, strong skunk dominates first rip while the sweetness acts as aftertaste. None of it is overpowering, less an intense burst of flavor and more a natural balance.
Strong but not harsh, the earthy blend goes down easy and doesn’t leave the ashy, resin like spice of lesser strains. Every hit down to the end conjures up blueberries and musk, giving you fresh taste throughout the bowl and long after.
First impact is a strong head burst, sometimes accompanied by minor dizziness and jaw tension. Releasing, the high works down through the limbs, melting body into a pleasant numbness. Not drowsy or debilitating, there is enough Sativa in the mix to keep the user afloat. Well after ingestion, muscles are loose and relaxed and the head retains a steadying buzz. After an hour or two of focus, the comedown is extremely mellow and an easy transition back to sobriety.
While treatment for insomnia may be questionable, it is the perfect antidote for daily stress, general pains, or anxiety. Far from paranoia or coma inducing, the controlled euphoria is a very functional and balanced high. Repetitive tasks and creative work are both facilitated through a freeing of the body and a stirring of the mind. If you like your hybrids to keep your head up while your body settles down, then this is the strain for you.
All my words are just academics, the real proof is in the smoke. You tell me, is Blue Cheese just another novelty blend or is it the real deal? Should I stick to getting my off colored cheese kicks from the dairy aisle?
