UK Cheese Wax, also known as U.K. Cheese, is a popular wax that originated in the United Kingdom in the late 1980s. It is a hybrid that is a cross of Skunk #1 and Afghani. It has a trademark musky cheese aroma that is used for breeding all sorts of cheese strains. It is indica dominant but definitely has a quick sativa like head rush. These big beautiful buds with light hues of purple will leave you with a severe case of couch lock. Cheese is great for treating pain and is also known to increase appetite.

Looks: UK Cheese comes packaged in triangular, pine-cone-shaped buds that stay compact — but not as dense as most industrial buds can get. Their wintergreen color and bright-orange pistils look almost floral together, and aren’t as jarring as the dark-purple or trichome-covered buds you often see today.
Smell: The strain’s trademark funk is a relaxing combination of berries, sour Skunk and creamy cheese, with a slight earthy scent trailing behind. The smell is so intense it can fill the roof of your mouth at times, almost making you taste it.
