It features a powerful aroma, relaxing effects, and uplifting properties, which make it a popular choice for many cannabis consumers.

Appearance and Aroma

The buds of Cheesequake feature a beautiful blend of green and purple hues, covered in a thick layer of trichomes, which makes it a visually stunning strain. The aroma of Cheesequake is pungent and earthy, with a hint of sweetness and a cheesy overtone, which is due to the high concentration of the terpene myrcene.

How To Use Cheesequake

Methods of Consumption

Cheesequake can be consumed in multiple ways, such as smoking, vaping, or edibles. It is mostly smoked or vaped, either in a joint or a bong. Smoking or vaping allows for faster delivery of the compound to the bloodstream and a more immediate onset of effects. Edibles, on the other hand, provide a delayed onset of effects but can produce more pronounced and longer-lasting effects.

Recommended Dosage

The potency of Cheesequake requires moderation, especially for first-time users. A recommended dosage is around 1-2 hits or puffs, or around 10mg of THC if using edibles. Users should wait for 30 – 45 minutes after consuming before deciding whether to take more.


Cheesequake has a distinctive and pungent aroma and flavor. When it comes to pairing Cheesequake with food, there are several options to consider:

  • Savory dishes such as pasta or pizza that contain cheese
  • Spicy dishes such as buffalo wings or spicy tacos
  • Sweet treats such as cheesecake or canna rice krispies

Growing Environment

Cheesequake is a relatively easy strain to grow, both indoors and outdoors, but it requires attention to specific environmental conditions for optimal growth and yield. Generally, it thrives in a dry and warm climate with moderate humidity. The ideal temperature for germination is around 70-85°F. During vegetative growth, the temperature can be slightly cooler, around 68-78°F, and during the flowering stage, the temperature should be around 65-75°F. Cheesequake grows well in soil or hydroponic setups.

Cultivation Techniques

Cheesequake has a moderate growth rate and can be grown using a variety of techniques such as topping, pruning, and low-stress training (LST) to promote more branches and bigger buds. The plant has a heavy yield and requires support during the flowering stage due to the weight of its buds.


Cheesequake flowers for around 8-9 weeks and will be ready for harvest when the trichomes have turned mostly cloudy or have a slight amber color. The buds should be harvested selectively to avoid harvesting early and reducing potency or harvesting too late and causing degradation of the buds’ quality.
