Cheese aka UK Cheese or Exodus Cheese is a slightly Indica leaning hybrid that originates from the United Kingdom. This super cheesy clone-only cut is a phenotype that was discovered in a pack of Sensi Seeds Skunk #1 during the early 90s. This prized Skunk #1 pheno was heavily circulated around the UK’s underground cannabis scene due to its unique aroma and was popularized by a small group of growers based just outside of London referred to as “Exodus”.
This clone-only has been backcrossed or hybridized by several breeders and seedbanks for seed production due to her popularity. One seed version of note is Big Buddha Cheese (Skunk #1 (Cheese cut) x Afghani) which is a fair representation of the original Skunk #1 (Cheese) cut with slightly faster flowering and increased yields.
