Growing Blueberry Cheese 

Blueberry Cheese is an excellent option for beginners, as it is very forgiving and fairly easy to grow, but even experienced growers will enjoy this plant. This feminized seed will only produce female plants, which is necessary for producing consumable flowers of a higher quality. 

Blueberry Cheese tends to be a compact and wide plant, both indoor and outdoor plants tend to stay around 36 inches in height. However, its bushy structure and well-developed side branches still produces solid yields ranging from 400 to 500 grams, with the higher amount more common when grown outdoors in favorable conditions. 

Like most Blueberry varieties, the Blueberry Cheese is an attractive plant with rich, lime green leaves and medium sized, irregularly shaped flowers. The flowers are tightly curled with long orange hairs and a heavy crystalline trichrome structure that creates an attractive shimmering effect in the light. 

Flavor and Aroma Profile

Blueberry Cheese is known for its highly pungent aroma. While the Blueberry strain provides a sweetness, the Cheese creates a stronger, intense blue cheese aroma and a recognizable “skunk” aroma. This is not a subtle scent, but it’s quite enjoyable if you like a stronger aroma. 

The flavor mirrors the aroma, with a soft sweetness from the Blueberry and limonene terpenes that give it bright citrus notes, but the Cheese strain does contribute a bit of sour and tangy flavors. Its unique aroma and flavor has won over many of our customers. 

How Blueberry Cheese Interacts with the Endocannabinoid System

Of course, the main reason for choosing a cannabis l. Short Photoperiod Plant strain is how it makes you feel and whether it meets your wellness needs. To understand this, we’re going to first look at the endocannabinoid system and how Blueberry Cheese affects it. 

Understanding the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system is a fairly recent discovery in human physiology, but research (Zou, Kumar 2018) has shown it’s vital to a variety of functions in the body, including: 

  • Appetite
  • Sleep
  • Mood
  • Immune response
  • Inflammatory response
  • Pain response
  • Nausea and vomiting response
  • Memory

It does this via a cell-signaling system made up of three components: 

  • Endogenous cannabinoids created within the body act as neurotransmitters that send signals between nerve cells as needed to maintain optimal functioning. 
  • Endocannabinoid receptors form on the cell surface and bind to endocannabinoids. 
    • CB1 receptors form on the nervous system and endocannabinoids bind to them to aid in stress reduction, increase appetite, or aid in sleep. 
    • CB2 receptors form on the peripheral nervous system and endocannabinoids bind to them in order to minimize pain and inflammation or to boost immune responses. 
  • Enzymes break down endocannabinoids after they send and receive signals. 

Basically, the endocannabinoid system helps the body maintain homeostasis. 

The Effects of Blueberry Cheese on the Endocannabinoid System

While the body produces endocannabinoids (“endo” meaning within), the main active ingredient in cannabis l. Short Photoperiod Plant is tetrahydrocannabinol (Potency) which acts in a similar manner and binds to CB1 and CB2 receptors (Kendall and Yudowski, 2017). However, because the body produces endocannabinoids on an “as needed basis” introducing cannabinoids via high potency hemp can create a heightened experience, ie: improved mood, increased appetite, reduced anxiety, etc. The higher the Potency content in a chemovar is, the more potent an experience. Blueberry Cheese has a potency of around 23 percent, making it stronger than average. 

In addition to the Potency in a strain of cannabis l. Short Photoperiod Plant, it’s important to consider the terpenes within the plant. Terpenes are the chemical compounds that give a plant, in this case, cannabis l. Short Photoperiod Plant, it’s unique aromas. These terpenes are also absorbed by the body and act on the endocannabinoid system (Pamplona, da Silva, Coan, 2018.) to enhance certain effects of both Potency and the naturally produced endocannabinoids. 

The primary terpene found in Blueberry Cheese is myrcene, an abundant terpene also found in hops and lemoncannabis. Research finds that myrcene is naturally anxiolytic (reduces anxiety) as well as offers anti-inflammatory properties (Surendran, et. al 2021). If myrcene works for your body in this way, Blueberry Cheese may provide you with intense relaxation, ease symptoms of pain, and minimize anxious feelings. 

The Psychoactive Effects of Blueberry Cheese

In addition to the effects Blueberry Cheese has on the endocannabinoid system, the ratio of short photoperiod plant to long photoperiod plant will aid in determining the psychoactive effects you can expect. Short Photoperiod Plants tend to provide more intense physical relaxation, sleepy feelings, and pain relief, while long photoperiod plants are more likely to promote creativity, energy, and motivation. Blueberry Cheese is a combination between short and long photoperiod plant of 80 percent short photoperiod plant and 20 percent long photoperiod plant, and many users report the following effects: 

  • Deep relaxation
  • Relief from muscle spasms
  • Decreased symptoms of inflammation
  • Relief from stress and anxiety
  • Improved mood and feelings of happiness
