oh the good old days indeed ,sunlights lights were fire hazards if i remember rightly ,i think they closed because of it ,we never bought these lights
,in 1993 we were fetching stuff from Holland by the vanload for ouselves and other grower friends ,this prompted me and a friend to start up a growshop ,we stocked the shop (at great exspense)and before we had chance to get insurance and open ,someone broke in and stole everything , Growell opened just after

anyone remember the "bush telegraph" ?

what about "leni" ? the old bloke in pershore who taught at pershore college of horticulture,fuck me that man could grow weed

memories lol its suprising to still have any lol

You lot make me feel young still,,, bow-down to ALL old-school ganja cats in the house
Without you folk the UK scene wouldn't be what it is today

N.B> Sunlight was just like McDonalds,, they had a shop everywhere,, you could only look and touch it if you bought it style,, just in-case it went wrong. That shop also had major issues with under 18's .. i know,, i was one of them ... even used to try make yout pay for the catalogues. lmfao Those where the days

If you look a little closer, you'll see that what you're describing is a Los Angeles thing... the "i'm better than you...'elite' boolshit"... even if its not transpiring IN los angeles, the vibe and culture of empty "im-better-than-you-ness" and fake tits. Other than the young kids who buy into this bullshit the same way they have been buying into shit since their 'Baribie" days, its unfair to characterize all American's as competely vulgar.

I am a gringo from new york who has lived in Manhattan, Los Angeles, New Orleans, 5 European cities and Central America. I have sold crap E's and Soapbar to sunburnt British package holiday-makers on Ibiza and up and down the Costa del Sol and called them "White Doves" and "Morocan 0-0" respectively. Same mo-tards, different accent.

I still don't understand how something as bog standard as Cheese got so popular, just another mediocre smelly skunky cut, maybe it's cos it always has that distinctive stink no matter how its grown and just about anyone can pull off a commersh crop with it.

But conoisseur headstash? nah, mediocre at best.

It's because Cheese is a "workable" cut / clone. Most "clone-onlys" are whack and make pathetic "workable" plants IMO (less than 75% rate is compost these ends). I n I talking returns over a tray of 50-100 clones,,, so not connoisseur grade dope here,, by a long standard!

Cheese is fast,, reliable,, semi-wooded (roots well), takes to most mediums like a duck to water... and usually get ppl stoned out there faces! The ppl that buy the stuff from dealers cant get enough of the stuff quick enough,, often fiending for it before they even smoked it ! That's why dude!

Obviously there's better dope around,, but none quite as popular on road in UK with commercial smokers,, for an 8weeker.

...give an extra 2-3 weeks n Jack Herer kills it all round!

what was the cuts you give the 21st century guys
do you also know the peng cut also the rumple and the rino(these are around the area)


nice pics doc
peace
Si Hombre, small world, I am wondering which one of you guys I have bumped into here & there in years past. My involvement with 21C was before they started, I never made it up there to the shop, IIRC because the nice guy in Brighton was closer timewise than N London ...for the West London Massive at least...

I cannot remember what it was we gave him, possibly a cut we called "Tony Skunk" after, well, Tony who grew 2 seeds out of a K of Dutch SK1 [? I think] someone nice brought in alongside the regular rubbish, the first unit ever seen around, maybe '91 or '92.

I have not run into Peng or the rumple, but there has been a rino cut around my home area [W/SW] for ages, Jordan is the local cut a lot of ppl have run for +/- 10 years, stll the best mix of quality and quantity.

now, where did I leave my Zimmer frame ?

The guy I used to see in Brighton was the old Hippie with the first growshop down there, not sure of what he is up to now, after a brief time with the massively dodgy Croydon bunch, shops sprung up on 'our' side of town... I even used to use Gypsy's old growshop 3 doors down from his seed shop in Surbiton.


David Bailey can sleep easy I think, these are all I currently have of the Jordan - a Summer Loft crop and the Rhino, a quick 2 crop lash up garden, homebrewed NFT system running on a 'table' of some very high tech Milk Crates.

Here is the true story of the origins of Cheese - by Wing Commander Blue (the guy who first grew it) and as printed in issue 65 of Weed World magazine.

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.

Hey boys n girls

I loved the thread

let me add an american two pence here for ya

i have the cheese, im excited to run her and I think she is a PRIME example of EPIC pot

WHY!?!?! WHY!?!?!?!

in its truest form smoking is a pleasure and I for one like many old hippies that ame before me really enjoy smoking alot of pot all day long

do that with some devastating one hit wonders and your not functional or you get undesirable effect


the uk cheese experience is for the ardent smoker, the social smoker, the smoker that is off the beaten path and smokes a sizable amount of weed in a day, well then fellows youve got the winner

it embodies everything enjoyable about a toke and the high is a fine high anytime of the day

certain weeds satisfy on so many different levels i certainly "get" the cheese fancy

its also a great pot to introduce to the causal smoker and not make for an unpleasant experience

just my two cents
