The Moon Cheese cutting is like the Exodus Cheese several ways. Being a shape-shifter...appearing more indica during vegetative growth, they both switch to very thin sativa leaves in bloom. Both have occasional double-serration of their leaves with long petioles and commonly 7 leaflets. Both Moon and Exodus have "swollen bract" bud structure with opaque colored pistils. Both have skunky undertones.
How the plants are different..... I'd say the Moon Cheese is a bit more potent with a happy, active, pain relief type effect. The taste and smell is probably where the plants have different qualities as well.... the Exodus is known for it's fermented apricots, fruity pebbles/hospital cleaner odor. The Moon Cheese actually smells like dairy cheese upon cure with faint hints of lemon/lime generic candy, sorta tart and sweet smelling. An interesting odor that leaves you curious.
Also, the Moon Cheese has the similar collar-like branch supports of the Exodus, but larger and stronger so she is able to support the weight better than her mother. Above average stem to bud ratio on both plants, they both produce nice colas with very little popcorn.
The Moon Cheese leaves are much longer and larger than the Exodus cutting, giving the moon the appearance of being a jungle shrub.
Finally, the Exodus cut often has purple stripes and maroon petioles while the Moon clone is more green. They are very hard to tell apart and often I look for the purple stripes of the Exodus or at the fact the Moon Cheese is a bit more vigorous and possibly more branchy at times can help identification. Both plants really stretch in flower.
The two plants are very similar and while some of the Moon Cheeses sativa sisters had more Exodus taste and some had more skunk odor, keeping this plant above all the others was simple, it was clearly superior and verymuch likeher mother.
A reversal of the Moon Cheese to pollenate the Exodus mother has to result in some amazing sativa skunks without doubt. We are super excited about finding the Moon Cheese, like a gift was dropped into our lap.
Thanks for the question Primate.
