Blackberry Cheesequake Strain Review
On my first visit to the TreeHouse Collective (THC) I was tempted by quite a few strains that I haven’t seen at other resource centers around Portland. As a fan of the original Cheesequake, a super funky and potent cross between Cheese x Querkle, I was immediately reached for the jar of Blackberry Cheesequake.
As soon as I peered inside the jar I was hooked on the gooey, trichome-caked nugs of purple funk. The nugs have beautiful pale-orange pistils that stand out against the deep purple hues of the herb. Under a microscope the trichomes are standing tall – mostly clear and a few cloudy. The nugs could have a tighter manicure, but overall they are beautiful.
The Blackberry Cheesequake herb gives off a soft aroma of fruity, berry funk, not too different than other Cheesequake batches I’ve come across. When the buds are ground up the funk hits the nose a bit harder, but the smell is pretty soft all around.
A joint of Blackberry Cheesequake burned smooth and even, leaving clean ash and no chemy harshness on the throat. The smoke tastes of soft fruity flavors followed by sweet floral undertones. The end flavor reminded me of honeysuckle – it is really delicious.
The original Cheesequake herbs are a wonderful mix of mind-buzzing sativa and body-relaxing sativa – and the Blackberry Cheesequake strain is no different. While enjoying a joint the buzz started in the top of my head, putting pressure on my eyeballs and relaxing the muscles in my neck. My arms and legs had a nice tingle as I relaxed on the couch with my eyes closed. After a couple hours I felt the high subsiding and I drifted off for a catnap – what better way to end a nice session?
