Black Cherry Cheesecake

The Black Cherry Cheesecake strain is a mystery, believed to have humble beginnings in southern Oregon by an unknown breeder. A cross of Black Cherry Soda, Super Silver Haze, and Cheese, Black Cherry Cheesecake is an indica-dominant hybrid with THC levels hovering around 18% with less than 1% CBD. Users describe this moderate-to-high THC strain (cultivar) as the perfect evening supplement to ease aches and pains, clear the mind, and relax the body.

Black Cherry Cheesecake is uncommon, but it’s a sweet, exotic strain that holds true to its name in flavor and aroma. Visually stunning, Black Cherry Cheesecake buds appear sugar-coated, with leaves ranging from bright green to deep purple and pink. Users report that it tastes like sweet cherry with pungent cheese notes. Other users note light citrus and strong herbal flavors with deep earthy scents.
