This strain has a scent that will appeal to fans of bold flavors: parent plant Cheese comes through on the nose with a sour, tangy funk. Hanging out underneath are some clashing floral, berry, and grape notes passed on from Querkle. Notably, any grape aroma or taste is totally coincidental to Cheesequake’s purple leaves — the pigments responsible for the strain’s color do not correspond to its flavor profile. Although the strain’s smoke is smooth to inhale, all these flavors can make for an acrid, eye-stinging smell when the buds are burnt. There is a simultaneously sweet and sour taste on the exhale that may provide divisive for some consumers. This is a particularly pungent flower, so those who’d like to keep their smoking discreet should take any needed precautions.
Cheesequake hits smokers relatively quickly, with a tingle around the eyes and forehead. Soon after, users may detect a slight uptick in mood, along with a sharpening of the senses — sights and sounds may seem more intense, or at least more noticeable. Despite these initial sativa effects, though, sustained cerebral thinking is not particularly common.
