Enjoying Big Buddha Cheese At The Summer Solstice.
The Summer Solstice at Stonehenge this year was a blast, and i would like to thank all the people who made it so memorable. As always the air soon filled with the delicate and sweet aroma of the Cheese, probably the most famous and sort after of all the Indica Skunk selection available as Cannabis Seeds. Almost all of the tokers and smokers i meet have heard of The Big Buddha Cheese, its unmistakable. From the moment you open the bag and that waft of cheesiness fills your nostrils, you know its The Cheese. However, after a quick discussion, it appears that very few people understand the origins of the Big Buddha Cheese, so allow me to provide you with a brief history so you too may understand the origins of the Cheese and impress your friends with your Cannabis knowledge.
The Origins Of Big Buddha Cheese.
The origins of Big Buddha Cheese stretch back decades over time, back to the mid 1980, when a collective, based around the South of England, and known collectively as Exodus, first began distributing amongst its loosely affiliated members, a rogue Skunk #1 cutting which was grown from a packet of Skunk#1, supplied by The Sensi Seed Bank. Unlike today, some 30 years on, where we have a wide and assorted variety of Cannabis Seeds, both Feminized and Regular, back in the early to mid 1980's the selection was rather limited more Commercial Land-Race Cannabis, and the emergence of the Nederweed, piloted by such names as Shantibaba and Arjan, from the Greenhouse, along with Simon of Serious Seeds, marked a new generation of Weed and high quality Cannabis and Marijuana seeds to emerge from Amsterdam.
One such Cannabis strain which gained huge popularity upon its release was the renown Skunk #1, the original genetics are still available to this day from Sensi Seeds and The Flying Dutchman. A good yielding Indica-Sativa hybrid, this became one of the foundation Cannabis strains for the future of Neder Weed that we all know and love today. Exactly who bought, planted and subsequently cloned this rogue seed is unknown. What is known is that from a packet of 10 Skunk #1 Feminised Cannabis seeds purchased from Sensi Seeds, a rogue female was found. This female Cannabis plant displayed unusual characteristics, both in yield, smell and high, and luckily for future Cannabis connesuer's, the gardener in question was responsible enough to ensure the propagation of clones, which they subsequently distributed amongst a selective and trusted network of pioneering Cannabis growers, who risked far longer prison sentences if caught, than we see today, called Exodus.
One such member of this elite group was a man known as Micheal, as his popularity grew and he became associated with this particular Cannabis strain, people referred to him as the Big Buddha, possibly due to his Buddha-like features. Micheal, The Big Buddha, realized the uniqueness of this Cannabis strain, and set about feminising and self-seeding the clones in an attempt to create a stable version of the Clone. With some help from fellow Cannabis cultivators, and through the use of the then newly acquired technique of being able to feminize and stabilize a strain of Marijuana, The Big Buddha Cheese was born.
So armed with that information you can quickly and easily explain to anyone how the Big Buddha Cheese, one of England's most popular and sort after Cannabis strains was born. Amaze your friends by explaining to them that the Cheese they are finding so deeply satisfying was born of seeds more than 30 years ago, and cultivated by gardeners who are now approaching their 50's. Many of the younger smoker in Great Britain believe than The Cheese is a new and fantastic blend of Cannabis. Often they do not dream of enquiring into the genetics and history of a Cannabis strain. As an old man, who long ago once saw this new smelly style of Cannabis start to be distributed amongst the smoking fraternity, i believe that 30 years on, as i did then, The Cheese is here is stay, its unique smell and taste make it distinguishable from any other strain of Cannabis available, and because of it, has given rise to one of my favourites, The Blue Cheese, and my ultimate, "Travel to Amsterdam just to buy Favourite" DeKroon Cheese, available at only the DeKroon CoffeeShop in Amsterdam.
So the next time you're offered some Cheese, you now know the history, whether it is real Cheese or not is up to you to decide, but once you have bought and smoked Big Buddha Cheese, you will soon realise there is no substitute.
