This strain was created by Subcool’s The Dank Seeds. The buds in this strain are small to medium in size. The leaves are mossy green in color and are covered with hairy orange pistils and white trichomes.
What are the Flavor and Effects of Cheese Quake?

Conversely, this strain has flavors that are agreeable to many. It tastes cheesy and sweet with grape undertones.
Cheese Quake’s effects hit smokers quickly. It starts with a tingle around the eyes and the forehead that leads to a slight uptick in mood and sharpening of senses. The mental buzz lasts for a number of minutes before the physical body high starts to manifest. As high progress, smokers will start feeling their bodies relax. This soothing indica calm creeps slowly before turning into a numbing full-body high.
What are the Medicinal Benefits of Cheese Quake?
Just as the recreational effects of this strain are wide-ranging, its medicinal benefits are also extensive. This strain works magic on the body and is amazing in helping the muscles relax. Combined with the mental high, this makes the Cheese Quake the ideal bud in managing stress levels and mental health conditions, such as depression and even PTSD. Patients with attention deficit disorders (ADD and ADHD) can also benefit from its mental buzz that increases focus and lucidity. Finally, its full numbing physical effects tend to lull users to sleep. Those who suffer from mild cases of insomnia will find this strain especially helpful at the end of the day.
Negative Effects You Can Expect from Cheese Quake?
Whether used for recreational and medicinal purposes, it is a good idea to keep a water source nearby when smoking this cannabis strain.
