Exodus Cheese (Green House Seeds)
These seeds are not very similar to the legendary clone-only strain from Great Britain but very good nonetheless. They turn into very bushy plants without one dominating cola, have a substantial girth and need to be pruned for better results. Exodus Cheese requires some extra N, grows vigorously and thus needs shorter veg. The buds become very resinous but rather ordinary in terms of yield.
It is a creeper but lasts quite long. It is strongly felt both in the head and the body, is good for relaxing, helps with pain and insomnia.
Very fruity, with hints of citrus and also some skunk but the thought-after 'cheesy' aroma is rare and even with the right pheno you have to give the buds a nice long cure to get it.
The most popular clone-only strain in the UK is now available in seed form. The growers who liked the Cheese will love the Exodus Cheese.
8 weeks flowering time indoors, with a production up to 800 grams per square meter (under 1000 Watt of light per square meter). Outdoors it finishes by end September, and can produce up to 800 grams per plant (with very large plants).
It grows with a very branchy attitude, and good lateral development. It can use support for the branches during flowering.
The effect is very stoned, effective medicinally against insomnia and pain. It has a very earthy, mossy flavor, with woody notes. Plant advised for growers with some previous grow-experience.
Effect: Very stoned and long lasting, slow creeper. Medicinally effective in pain therapy, appetite stimulation and against insomnia.
Flowering indoor: 8 weeks, with a yield up to 800 gr/m2. Very good for SCRoG.
Flowering outdoor: Ready at the end of September (North hemisphere) with a production up to 800 gr/plant. Branchy plant with vine-like growth, needs full support.
THC: 18.43 / CBD: 0.28 / CBG: 0.15
plant WILL WANT EXTRA "n" above average .
I would recommend this strain to anyone. But if you want to get the full potential out of this strain you should be able to do a selection run, keep mothers and run your keeper again.
You first have to find your desired cheese genes in this strain.
The Exodus Cheese grows more like a sativa but with rock-hard colas covered in crystals and with an almost pure indica effect. Its taste is fruitier than one would expect from a cheese strain. The buzz is slow to build and is also long lasting. As far as the yield goes it's by no means a chronic;)!
I recommend to use ScrOG and to FIM it after the 3d pair of leaves. Training is out of the question because there are too many branches but SCROG is a way to go!
A wonder strain. It's hardy, clones easily, produces good yields, the smell is to die for (blue cheese), the effect is strong and mellow at the same time, in short take it, you won't be disappointed.
I grew some of this earlier this year,best fuckin' cheese I ever encountered.Same reaction from everyone who tried it.
I just fished a chemdog and exodus cheese by ghs and to me they have turned out great the chemdog was exactly as described and grew 6 coals from one topping tastes and smells like the good old weed from the late 70s early 80s with an immediate sat head buzz I mean I'm really pleased with it. 4 of the 6 colas are easy 8 inches round the main is 10 or 12 in easy no lie I promises why would I ive only used ghs once well twice now as I have ordered some more exodus cheese from them again which I'm going to tell you about next. The only reason I have not gone the khemdog again is because it took 10 and a half weeks to finish compared to 7 weeks for the exodus which is one of the most pungent smelling weeds I have ever came across its sticky as hell and it gives a nice Evan all round buzz more a night time smoke though does have a lazy side makes your eyes red as hell and puts a big smile on your face. I would like to see the people that slag them off growing skills no how and set UPS because I bet that has a lot more to do with producing rubbish plants than ghs them selves I'm not ashamed to admit when Ive gone to heavy on the ferts and messed it up. Or how can ghs be blamed for people with crap lights, soil ph, nutes this list could go on for ever just m:leaf:y thoughts .
I loved the exodus cheese from them, a bit byte sensitive (3/10 showed a lil nut burn) but it was most ppl fav w.kandy kush a close 2nd, also ran buku n northern light blue. My only exp w.greenhouse. After all the bad reviews I read I wont order w.them agn but that was good stuff
N it smelled n tasty very legit(cheesy/skunky)
I got 10 fems from greenhouse from WWMS n not one hermied on me, n I had a decent amount of stress(upstairs appt flooded, while it was vacant? N it flooded my appt n I had to turn on the lights a few times during dark cycle to clean up n make sure electric was ok). Mind u 2 DP blueberry n 1 TH buku that did hermie. 2/2 blueberry Hermed, 1/3 buku did but the other 2 were some fire. On a side note I know it's off topic but the buku was NOT a 7 week strain. I cut all 3 at 61 days n the 2 green ones clda used another week but I didn't see the male flowers on the 1 bc they were only where the pre-flowers were at nodes n a super dense lil nugget was on top of them so it kept the pollen contained, only the bud on top of the stamens had seeds but rest of plant was seedless. I just was worried the pollen got in the air n I wlda rather had my plants cut a wk early than have them spend the week developing seed rather than becoming bigger n more potent. N all the cheese finished by 61 days(cut 4 that day). I even had 1 done at 44 days(2oz dry weight) but most finished between 55-61 days n they were AWESOME. Got more 2 weeks into bloom as we speak
My GHS Exodus cheese went purple on me round day 39 of 12/12
ghs exodus cheese was my fav last year for sure!! The stone definitely creeped up on ya!!!

so far its germ'd ok and just pushing its second set of leaves- looks ok so far.
she's taken some wind at some point, the stems twisted, and not sure why my cameras made it look so yellow but shes actually nice and healthy and green! Shes the most sativa looking of the Dutch strains ive got on the go
I'll certainly agree its a sativa, mine will go into november at this rate, lets hope its mould resistant.
it certainly smells skunky mind, it should be a tasty smoke if I can get it in.
I harvested the GHS Exodus cheese,average yield,wonderful smelling and oozing with resin.
I chopped at day 68
The Exodus Cheese is ready and mate,it is proper cheesey fuel business!Classic,stinking,tasting cheese,on the sativa side of things,what more can you say? Just go for it man!
unny enuff,just been round a mates house whos just finished some ghs exodus cheese!,all i can say is there is some nice smelly phenos in there and it seems to be consistant with no hermies reported!as far as being "as close as it gets" im not sure on that!, an the exact replica of the exo cut it aint!..if you want a nice old skool skunk no 1 flavour then you could do worse ,in fact if these came in regs id buy some!!
i got sum exodus cheese on the go atm it 6 weeks in looks ok to me but the yield looks pretty shit to me very sticky atm
ive done this strain 3 times an always had some phenos that are close the original some even have the same bud structure. there are a few phenos that are not like the exodus but mine were still awesome stinkin frosty buds an yielded good too. one pheno that stood out had a real pineapple sweet skunky twang to it, it didnt smell anything like cheese but it was an really nice pheno still.
imo if you cant get the original an want something close to it then buying a pack of ghs exodus cheese you cant really go wrong. not for the price of the beans anyway. its the only strain ive ever bought more than once except sannies seeds killing fields so its gotta be doing something right. the fact they are under a score( ?20) is probably a big factor in why i did them again an again but its also cos i know im gonna get something nice an skunky an cheesy. obviously there are better strains out there but they also cost at least twice as much . an tbh theres nothing wrong with this strain. or at least there hasnt been the 3 times ive done it. i get a on average 3-4 phenos most of which smell an taste similar but sometimes il get the odd one thats considerably different.
not much to say on its growth. its pretty average tbh. has a kinda xmas tree structure similar to the original.
an as for those earlier in the thread saying its like blue cheese an probably is. its nothing like blue cheese an has nothing blueberry about it. most phenos are jus pure skunky funk stench. ive nver had any phenos that even remotely resemble any kind of blueberry/blue cheese genetics. this is supposed to be the exodus cheese selfed S1 an not a cross like the other cheese they sell is.
I have done exodus cheese in 2011 it was a realy nice smoke but. The yields where terrable I got about 20 grams a plant
I've done 3 exodus grows and find yield isn't too great, but as a smoke it hits the spot and smells amazing, think on average it was approx. 2 oz per plant. stinks for the last couple of weeks before the chop, but if you want big yields id avoid exodus in imo, but it does for me and the lads love it

Dominant smell of bud : Floral
Associated smells : Sharp Cheese (this aspect did not show up until after 5-6 weeks of curing)
Dominant flavour : Earthy (almost like mushroom)
Associated flavours : Floral
Harsh/smoothness : (1-10, 1 being extremely harsh and 10 being extremely smooth) 3-it can be expansive
- cough factor? : sometimes on big hit
Profile : 70/30 head body. Not racy at all. Minor couchlock effect after first hour
Potency : (1-10, 1 being extremely weak and 10 being extremely potent)
7, one big hit makes me pretty happy and multiples don't add up too much (meaning it has a pretty low ceiling), I can't notice any extra effect after a 3rd big hit
Duration : (approx length of buzz, from first hit) 2.5 hours
Use : great creative and music appreciation high and moderately ok for social use, but you're still in your own head a lot
Munchies? : no
The way the high hits me (4 different plants from Greenhouse, consistent high across all) I almost withdraw a little bit and enjoy the sensations around me and think weird shit (but totally lucid, not psychedelic at all), only to pop out once in a while to socialize and make everyone say 'WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?...Jesus you are so stoned!"
So I can only imagine an entire group of people who can handle their weed doing that. That would be cool. Sadly, my girlfriend only likes body stone, so she won't smoke it and most people I hang out with can't handle strong weed and I'm certain at least one of them would freak out and make a scene in a big enough group.

The true origin of UK Cheese
I recently went on holiday to the Canary Islands, a friend of mine gave me a copy of Weed World magazine to read while I was there (issue 56). To my surprise, was the article by Big Buddha Cheese? On reading this I decide to tell the story from the beginning.
Back in the late 80’s early 90’s, a friend-of-a-friend of mine came back from the Sensi Seed Bank in Amsterdam with some seeds.
Most of the plants were males but 4 of them were girls – 3 of the 4 were wankers and one was kind of OK. This plant was cloned and passed on to 3 or 4 different people who grew it alongside some Northern Lights and Silver Pearl plants in their well built grow rooms.
I am 45 years old now and have been growing my own weed for about 25 years, 10 of them outside in the wild.
My best friend and I decided that we would build ourselves our own grow rooms but didn’t see the need for getting too technical so, we made them out of anything we could lay our hands on – we called them “orange crates” coz that’s what they looked like.
As for lighting, we went on a commando raid to a local disused cement factory and helped ourselves to some Sodium and Metal Halide 400’s. We made our own shades from some aluminium sheeting from a local scrap yard.
Now all we needed was some nice cuttings. I managed to get some N/L and S/P plants and also one of the Skunks. Most of the other growers concentrated on the N/L and S/P because they are good all rounders.
I think one of the Skunks went to Crewe and another to Cornwall. I quite liked the Skunk so I kept it going. Now over the next 7 or 8 years of constant cloning, the Skunk started changing – don’t know why – it just did. It started to get really smelly – I mean really stink. The smell would get everywhere and I was often creosoting the fence to try and mask the smell (a little tip there for Cheese farmers, creosote or burnt toast). Cropping was a nightmare and I wouldn’t even go out because people would often say “you stink”.
I was giving some of this weed to my close friends and they all loved it and, as the taste was changing it seemed the strength was too. This weed had become so strong and so smelly that it reminded me of something I had smelt before, but I couldn’t think what it was. Then one day the penny dropped.
When I was 17 or 18 and living at home with my parents, I would go out a lot with a friend who worked in a food essence factory. Some days I would see him and he would stink of all different kind of things: fish, beef, vanilla etc. He would bring me small test tubes of concentrated liquids home and use them in my fishing bait (the carp loved the vanilla). One day he put one under my nose and said “smell this one, its called blue cheese, and it’s a real minger”.
This was the smell I had been trying to remember. The weed smelt just like it and so she was born. I gave the weed the name “Cheese”.
The only cuttings I let out were to people who were incapable of doing their own cloning and only wanted a plant for their own garden in the summer months.
Another close friend of mine, known as “Of the Hill”, came to me one day and asked me if I would do him 21 cuttings as he was building a big lab for the Exodus people in Luton. I was a bit unsure of this as I didn’t know ay of these people but, I did it for him because he is a good egg and has dug me out of plenty of holes over the years. Anyway, off he went with his cuttings and I didn’t here too much more about it, other than a good harvest festival was had.
“Of the Hill” arranged for a cutting to make it’s way to a coffee shop in Amsterdam in 2003 (Home Grown Fantasy). It was cloned and put on the menu as ‘Cheese’ and went on to claim 3rd place in the cannabis cup in 2004.
I recently met an American at a Hawkwind gig in London who had heard of the Cheese in Washington. He had come to the UK to see Hawkwind and smoke Cheese. His face lit up when I pulled a big fat Cheese straw out of my pocket!
It’s kind of annoying really – I wish I could have put a patent on the word “Cheese” in the context of marijuana but, it’s kind of difficult when things are illegal.
All over the place now I hear people calling all sorts of weed “Cheese” and I say to them “no mate, this is Cheese”.
As for Mr Big Buddha? I have plenty of respect for him, but the Cheese is not yours no matter what you call it and, as for crossing her? She does need help –over the years she has started to show signs of stress.
Growers will notice that some plants get brown spotty leaves during growing & flowering that results I leaf drop. I don’t know what the cause is, it’s not the soil, the water, the food, or the air quality (possibly a virus of some kind), so I suppose a cross of some kind to introduce some new vigour to her would be a good thing so, like I said, respect to Big Buddha for trying.
So for nearly 14 years, the Cheese was living at only a couple of places but now it seems to be everywhere for people to enjoy.
I don’t know what she has become – some sort of mutant freak, but she sure hits the spot and everyone who smokes her loves her to pieces.
So there you have it – the truth about the origin of Cheese. You can all rejoice that I kept her going for all these years and now you all know how it came about its name.
In the grand scheme of things it’s not very much, but I wanted to set the record straight.

In this video a popular cannabis grower Matt Mernagh shows trimmed branches of the Exodus Cheese which as far as one can judge by this video got very leafy, pretty thin, with wide internodes along lanky stems. The amount of resin seems nice.
A grower named mypitbullboutit shows slides of his Exodus Cheese grow in hydro (DWC). According to the grower himself, the buds are very big, solid, extremely resinous, have a strong skunky smell with hints of fruit. From one plant grown under a 1000W HPS mypitbullboutit got 10 oz of dry buds. He praised the taste of the smoke in which the hints of fruit and blueberry were followed by a strong skunk.
This official Green House Seeds video shows an Exodus Cheese grow. The quality of the video is low.
