Lineage: Big Buddha Cheese x DJ Short’s Blueberry Story: Bred by Barney’s Farm by pollinating a Big Buddha Cheese female with a pair of Blueberry males Appearance: Compact, purple-tinged flowers with average resin coverage Aroma: The high point of this strain for sure, the aroma was a wonderfully pungent mix of sweet blueberry and sharp, musky, putrid elements… which, yes, can be described as smelling like cheese. It’s a very strange and unique taste that you really only find in Cheese strains — alternately appealing and revolting, like many fine cheeses Flavor: The taste took on more of the cheese elements than the smell did, while the berry sweetness fell to the background. One reviewer commented that there was even an iron/mineral-like taste, similar to what is found in very “goaty” cheeses, while others mainly picked up on peppery, sharp notes. The sweetness was still present, but the sharp tastes were stronger for sure. Qualities: We had one outlier reviewer in our results that had a very uppy, motivational experience full of energy, exaggerated hand motions, and laughter… this contrasted with the experiences of the other reviewers yet was repeated on a secondary review, so we felt it worth mentioning. Sometimes meds simply affect people differently, so keep that in mind with this one, as we don’t normally have one review sticking out so much from the others. The majority of staff felt that this was a wonderful relaxing med that served to take all the troubles and pains of the day and put the brakes on them. Starting off with a buzzing, warm body, strong forehead/temple pressure, and an immediate mood elevation, this strain felt really potent early on. It was a torquey med that stayed at medicinal levels for around 1.5 hours, only tailing off around hour 2. The dominant state was one of engaged but inactive focus, where the couch and a movie or video games were the perfect accompaniment. It was a great “stealth med” though, as the reviewer’s physical appearance was unaffected despite the potency. A soft drop (or perhaps a rise, since it was a “down” med overall) back to sobriety made this a smooth experience overall.
