Dinafem - Cheese
A legendary variety which originated in the UK. Its history is simple and, for many valid reasons, its genetics are the most well-known throughout the country. For countless people in the UK, an essential reference for knowing if a variety of cannabis is worthy is its comparison with cheese.
The reason for this? Its intense, long-lasting and aromatically Indica taste of cheese, something similar to a strong, well-cured, vintage cheese, the type of cheese that makes your mouth water when you think of it. Obviously, there’s more than just flavour to this strain. The coat of crystals which cover the flowers of this aromatic variety is dense enough to induce you to smoke it rather than eat it with bread and a fine wine! It produces a well-balanced effect, a physical and cerebral mixture. Therefore, it contains a noticeable amount of CBD, which softens the amount of THC contained in the resin. With 8 week flowering and lush heavy harvests, it has been included among the Top Ten by all the coffee-shops in Amsterdam and awarded a prize in the High Times Cannabis Cup, not to mention the tens of thousands of “Brits” crazy about this variety. This all fits in to the scene of success and international recognition that it has obtained.
Its aspect is languid, with long outstretched leaves and slim stalks, an heirloom from its skunk ancestry, but the flowers it produces are thick and plentiful and, when exposed to the adequate low temperatures, obtain a light violet colour.
Destiny chose it to be originally developed within the safety measures of an underground movement in the UK, an alternative squatter’s community called Exodus. In the 1990s, it became a centre for cannabis activities which was more or less tolerated by the local authorities and which resulted in a variety which is now nº 1 in the UK.
It can be classified as a highly commercial variety, comparable to Big Bud, Skunk#1, Power Plant, or Critical+, as these varieties, together with Cheese, are heavy yielders, quick and compact. However, what is paramount is that this strain captivates everyone that has the opportunity to try it due to its mild taste, medium effect and the overall pleasant feeling it produces.

This strain was great. Very Strong!!
I crossed Cheese with a White Widow back cross. The result about 24-30 seeds.
I flowered them ALL. Choose one female!
Then grew out Ripped Bubba from TGA Seeds. I got ONE(1) Male. Very Strong ! I pollinated the White Widow X Cheese with the Ripped Bubba. The Result was a great taste and cerebral high. Thus the Name: Arctic Haze.
Known to most as Subarctic.
The plants in coca tasted like Lemons
The plants grown in Soil tasted like Pepsi/vanilla
One other pheno was an orange/lemon cross. I use Advanced Nutrients-pH Perfect for Flowering. I use Sugar Daddy in Hydro and/or DWC (Deep Water culture). I use molasses in soil with Carb Load.(Carb Load also has molasses)
I use one 1000W HPS in a 4x4 tent with Daytime temps at or below 79*F. The night time temp of 67*F or above.
Alone the White Widow was bland as was Ripped Bubba on its own. However the Cheese cross added density shortened the flowering time and increased the flavor. When breeding the Male is the most important plant. Tight internodal spacing, strong flavor early germination period, fast flowering time(time when male flower appears to date of opening) Are all very important factors for breeding cannabis. The male has a large part in the type of high as well.
