Strawberry Cheesecake Cannabis Weed Strain

strawberry cheesecake strain

The Strawberry Cheesecake strain we all know and love plates the same elicit effects as the adored desert – all without the calories: euphoria, relaxation and an appetite for wanting more. This strain is a real doozy giving you a sugar high and sugar crash at the same time. With 22% THC, be prepared for a strong head high, soaring your creativity and motivating yourself to tackle those tedious tasks around the house. This kind of cake will get you to sit back and relax. Expect uncontrollable grinning and giggling after gobbling up this late-night delight.



Strawberry Cheesecake is the original dessert combining Chronic, White Widow, and Cheese. The taste of the bud is a sweet berry flavor mixed with a strong dose of cheese – it’s no wonder where Strawberry Cheesecake got its name. The parents of this plant are some of the three happiest strains giving this bud a budding effect. The classic Chronic strain attributes its signature sweet taste while White Widow can be thanked for a fruity and euphoric contribution and the Cheese really puts you in a food coma with its fermented French flavor.

Sweet components

The indica to sativa ratio is 70/30, making this high more of a couch-lock than an outdoor adventure. The high THC content elevates you pretty quickly, and the surprisingly high CBD content of 2% helps to balance out the some effects of THC like paranoia. Many tokers also attribute its energetic qualities to the inviting and popular 1:10 ratio of CBD to THC.

Different types of Cheesecake

There are many variations of this wonderful strain like Strawberry Shortcake, Strawberry Cough and the hefty bad boys, Strawberry Cream. The Strawberry Cheese is quite a hit in the UK – the sativa version of Cheesecake with a similar fruity taste and euphoric effect, only this time, sending you out into the world to socialize. If you have a sweeter sweet tooth, Cough is your best bet. Cheesecake oil is hard to find but you can easily find seeds. Strawberry Shortcake bud is also a runner up, but could somebody come up with a strawberry crumble cheesecake already? My mouth is watering. For growing your own, check out the video below with the huge stocks and stems of Strawberry Cream.

You won’t feel the paranoia of high anxiety because this strain keeps your mind positive with focused energy or elated with a soothing relaxation.

Strawberry Cheesecake Strain, plant, buds, grow tips

Strawberry Cheesecake taste profile:

  • Fruity
  • Sweet
  • Cheesy
  • Skunky

Overall, this strain is preferable for a day or nighttime of chill with nothing important to do.  This is an all-around playtime nug. Giggle fits are bound to happen when you get your sugar high on Strawberry Cheesecake, so tune-in for a comedy show wherever you go.


Growing tips

Strawberry Cheesecake has a relatively hefty yield with 32 ounces being at the high end. Reaching a medium height of 40 inches, these plants are great for accommodating lack of space. They grow compact and dense, hence the signature thick stocks. Growing these nugs is no cakewalk as its name may suggest, but is not difficult by any means. Flowering takes an average of 8 weeks to grow these dense, fat and sticky kolas. Once the buds flower, you will notice thick, frosty trichomes surrounded by fiery orange hairs. Strawberry Cheesecake price per eighth is typically reasonable. Not dirt cheap, but a middle shelf option. Seeds are always the cheapest way to down your strawberry cheesecake marijuana, with single packets starting at $8 and bundles that lower the price even more. Strawberry Shortcake kush seeds are readily available too and are similar in grow.

Climate: Warm weather best suits this strain

Indoor and Outdoor: Though you will get a higher yield outdoor with the right climate, watering and care

Height: Around 40 inches, give or take

Yield: 16-32 ounces - the higher end being grown outside

Strawberry Cheesecake round up

The overall of this strain is positively delicious – an all-natural sweet treat. While many enjoy a morning toke, an activity come to known as “wake and bake,” Strawberry Cheesecake is a “sugar-fake” – giving you the pleasure of a dessert from your pipe. It’s about time to smoke a slice. However, this is a heavy high. Though it offers a huge amount of stress relief and delivers the giggles, it’s not for the faint of heart. It is safe to say, if you are a beginner, try a strain that is less abrasive like Durban Poison or Cherry Pie. What I love about this strain is that you experience elation and start to appreciate the little things with just one slice. So, instead of trying to switch on a chef impersonation and light up the stove, switch on an episode of Chef’s Table and light up this cheesecake kush in your pipe instead – sweeter than most and as easy as pie.


Quick overview of Strawberry Cheesecake effects

  • Positive energy - feeling like you could redecorate or organize the whole house.
