Cannabis Review – Big Bhudda Cheese: Instant Karma?

Aromatic, skunky Hybrid.  If that’s not heaven, I don’t know what is.

A better at of Buddha

The name comes from a UK based breeder known as Big Bhudda.  He used a Skunk strain and crossed it with an Indica, and the result – known as Cheese due to its’ unmistakeable aroma – became Big Bhudda Cheese.

Sweet and fruity with a noticeable cheesy undertone made this a favorite amongst UK underground dealers in the early 2000s, and the international appeal of Big Bhudda Cheese is now well established.

First Impressions

At the point of delivery (in my case the local Coffeeshop) BBC comes well compressed, but a properly cured plant should always reserve a little moisture.


Nicely so with this Cheese, because it feels like you’re getting a ‘good gram’ for the gram you bought.  The surface leaf crumbles so readily in your fingers it seems you don’t have to use too much for a decent hit.

The bud is a light to mid-toned green with generous splashes of orange – sometimes closer to red – trichomes nestling in with the lush, dried leaves.  A generous aroma – fruity, cheesy.

First impressions leave meready to fill up mybowl and experience what else Big Bhudda Cheese has to offer.

Dosage & In the Grinder

I’m inclined to pop around 1/5th gram into my grinder.  Big Bhudda Cheese typically delivers around 19% THC and around 2% CBD, so a small fill will be amply sufficient to help me reach my heights.

The grind produces a flakey, fibrous mix.  Don’t expect BBC to powder, more likely the leaves will remain intact, whereas the orange trichomes will have dispersed amoungst the rest of the foiliage.  That means a little work will be needed to spread the mixture evenly into your smoke- but if you vaporise (recommended) it will of course make no difference.


Big Bhudda Cheese isn’t known for its outstanding medicinal qualities; the plant was initially concieved forTHC biased delivery.  That’s not to say BBC isn’t effective in certain conditions.  Like (pretty much) all hybrids it carries a CBD of around 2%, making it good for stress relief and depression.  It won’t do a lot analgesically, although it does help a little with pain control by using its anti-inflammatory compounds.

Buddha the Grinder

Personally I found little or no relief to my symptons as a result of useage, although I must say the psychoactive qualities of the bud did stop me thinking about my pains for a while.

For the THC Aficionado

Cereberal, definately.  Vaping at 180c produced a rich, flavoursome cloud, and a swift uptake into my visual circuits.  A general feeling of well-being accompanied the enhanced appreciation of colours.  Vaping in my grassy, flower garden makes a low-heat vape a very reflective and calming  experience.

The THC lover will be inclined to up the temperature a bit.  200c should be high enough to give a faster decarb, and the resulting vape will be more intense.  You’ll be inclided to daydream, or fixate on details you see around.  Close to 230c and you’re getting the full entourage, and that can be fairly mind-blowing.


I complain to myself about my stupidly-high tolerance, but I do find that certain buds will cut through my level.  Big Bhudda Cheese is one of them.  I’m not a scientist, and I don’t know why.  However – I don’t CARE!  Any strain capable of giving me a consistant 30 minute high is a winner in my books.  Were I in the price market for entertainment and recreational use then, yes, I’ll be tempted here again, but it won’t find it’s way into my regular diet, I’m somehow sad to say.

Tried it?  Liked it?  Tried a similar strain?  Please COMMENT below, you’re very welcome to share your views.
