Those that love a good stinky cheese will absolutely love Balmoral. This phenotype of the extremely popular UK Cheese was created by Canadian LP, Tweed Inc and has grown its own reputation dramatically in recent years.
The THC levels of this UK Cheese successor are relatively high, having a steady average of 21%. For enthusiasts of its well-known forerunner, it will not surprise you that the breeders worked overtime to craft this pungent, cheesy smell to perfection. The ‘pinkies out’ flavor of bleu cheese mixed with a musky skunkiness gives it a flavor akin to a garden party, so if you’re feeling fancy grab a patio chair and take it outside. The buds are grape shaped and forest green which almost contradicts its pungent flavor, though the orange hairs and light trichome dusting balance out its rich greens.
Because this blend is perfectly down the middle, users can expect a strong, sativa-forward focus and an uptick in mood that rounds out nicely with an intense body relaxation. After just one hit you’ll feel a burst of joy and creativity that may not get you very far, as the soothing body high will alleviate most of your motivation. Before the high drops you off into a deep sleep, pair your cheesy goodness with a bitter beer or dark chocolate treat.
Medicinal users listen up, because this strain seems to have been created just for you. Balmoral alleviates the symptoms of a myriad of ailments from pain to inflammation to mental health disorders. Because of its energetic properties, people have reported using this product for depression, stress, and even chronic fatigue. Conversely, its sedative effects afford users much-needed relief from chronic pain, migraines, and insomnia. Less experienced users should take it slow and get used to the effects before jumping in too deep.
This strain tends to do best indoors with an expected flowering time at around 9 to 10 weeks on average. With that being said, because of its pungent smell, you may want to invest in an advanced system to keep its smell from prying noses. The outdoor harvest time is around mid to late October and in either condition, you can expect a slightly above average yield.
Thanks to its pungent flavors and easy smokability, the only thing you really have to worry about with this strain is how much you should have on you at all times. Enjoy its complex flavor and let your cares melt away.
