Exodus Cheese is an Indica dominant strain that was created in the Netherlands by combining a Cheese strain from the UK with an old cannabis horticulturist’s favourite, Skunk #1. The name Exodus may come from the Bob Marley hit, or from the Exodus Collective, a group of freewheeling spirits who organised raves around England in the 1990s.
As you’d expect from the name, the Exodus Cheese strain has a smell that’s reminiscent of mature cheddar and this carries over into the flavor. The taste also has notes of earth, moss and pine. The high creeps up on you slowly until, suddenly, you realise you are very stoned. It combines a narcotic cerebral effect with a strong body buzz. In medical use, the marijuana can relieve muscular pain and help with insomnia.
Exodus Cheese seeds produce medium to tall plants notable for their prolific branching qualities. The large, dense buds are a dark green and covered in shiny crystals. THC content is around 18 percent.
Indoors, the plants are well suited to the SCROG method because of the many vine-like sidestems they grow. In any case, the plants will certainly need some support as they mature and the buds begin to appear. The Exodus Cheese strain has a strong smell while growing, so you may need to take precautions against inquisitive neighbours. Flowering time is seven to eight weeks and yields can be as high as 650 grams per square metre.
Outdoors, the plants should be ready for harvest by the end of September and they’ll do best in a sheltered spot with plenty of sunshine.
Exodus Cheese is not the easiest of strains to grow, but you should do fine if you have intermediate gardening skills. You’ll be rewarded by abundant harvests.
