How to Grow CBD Cheese (1:1)
The structure of this plant is mostly inherited from the Sativa genes with its thin and sharp leaves and wide nodes that helps air flow better and prevents the build-up of moisture. The CBD Cheese is a tall-sized plant that grows to around 6.5 to 8 feet. This may be a challenge for growers who do not have enough vertical space to spare. Topping and fimming can help with this issue and result in a more bush-like plant. On the other hand, if cultivators do not want to stress the plant, Low-stress Training (LST) methods can be used as an alternative such as the Screen of Green (SCRoG) technique. This can even produce a higher yield.
Indoors, this plant can flower after 56 to 70 days and produce up to 17.6 ounces per square meter of buds. Take note, that the CBD Cheese has inherited the pungent skunky aroma, which can fill in the entire room. Thus, installing an odor-filtering system is essential.
If the grower would rather cultivate outdoors, this plant prefers a more Mediterranean-like environment. During the month of October, the growers may harvest about 24.6 to 35 ounces per plant.
