A trifecta of quality strains from Growing Passion and Cookies Fam, Cheetah Piss crosses Lemonnade, Gelato 42, and London Poundcake 97. While the name is an homage to famous old school strain Cat Piss, there isn’t much in common when it comes to the highs. As far as its terpene profile, Cheetah Piss is funky just like Cat Piss, reminding consumers of those strains with weird, uncommon qualities.
If you’re a fan of the late Cat Piss strain, you’ll be glad to hear of its spinoff dubbed Cheetah Piss. However, it’s an hybrid strain unlike Cat Piss which is a sativa. They’re similar in that they smell like one another, producing a strong ammonia scent that are as you’ve guessed, is like cat, or perhaps, cheetah piss.
The cured buds of this strain are bright neon green with yellow pistils and a sprinkling of trichomes that easily flake off, so be careful not to handle the buds too much.
Reviewers have said that this strain left their body feeling both heavy and free of pain. They described the tension in their entire body leaving them as slight sedation kicked in.
About Cheetah Piss
Cannabis nostalgia has that effect in spades, too. After smoking good weed, my giddy old memories seem closer and more real, to the point that I paused Toy Story right before the Pizza Planet scene for a quick puff last night. It doesn’t always work, but the right strain and mindset often combine for fun mental trips to years past when the present is giving me an off night. Cheetah Piss, a strain from Cookies Fam that sounds more like high-octane dirt-bike fuel than cannabis, seemed made to fit that mold.
Cheetah Piss was named in honor of Cat Piss, an energetic, ammonia-smelling strain from the 2000s that became popular at medical dispensaries on the West Coast. As tokers got more stinky options, though, strains smelling (and named) like Cat Piss faded away. But I’ve always appreciated the sour, fume-like complexities of Cat Piss, and viewed it as a way to identify real potheads. Seeing a breeder like Cookies, which is largely responsible for the current Cake and Pie strain fad at dispensaries, embrace those qualities with Cheetah Piss gives me hope that we’ll see more returns to the past.
Don’t expect Cheetah Piss to deliver a high similar to that of its predecessor, though. The strain’s Lemonnade, Gelato and London Poundcake genetics are more apt for relaxation than the racy effects of Cat Piss, a phenotype of Super Silver Haze. However, there are cannabis varieties labeled Cat Piss with Afghani and Trainwreck backgrounds, so it’s not the first time a talented breeder has re-created buds that tinge the nostrils like a new bottle of Sex Panther.
I understand why a newer, modern take on a feline’s main vein requires a title that one-ups the original, but “Cheetah” implies a faster, more upbeat high than Cat Piss, already an infamous daytime strain that pumps lungs full of gusto. Cheetah Piss makes me laid-back and aloof, usually draining my tank of daily fucks to give within two hours. Cat Piss, on the other hand, turned me into a jumping jackrabbit, and the lethargic comedown was minimal. That’s nitpicking to nitpick, though, because I thoroughly enjoyed Cheetah Piss’s high, a gentle, euphoric ride made for chilling on the porch or in front of the TV. With Looney Tunes and Dexter’s Laboratory next on my streaming list, that’s exactly the buzz I’m looking for.
We’ve sniffed out Cheetah Piss at most of the dispensaries carrying Cookies strains, including Affinity, Colorado Harvest Company, Diego Pellicer, Lightshade, Higher Grade, Nature’s Kiss, Pig n’ Whistle, Solace Meds, Silver Stem Fine Cannabis, Roll Up and Simply Pure, among others.
Looks: Bright-green sugar leaves and a thick barrage of white trichomes look like frosting on Cheetah Piss’s dense, forest-green buds and dark-purple spots.
Smell: Cheetah Piss is easier on the nose than I remember Cat Piss being — but then again, I remember jumping a lot higher in high school than I did in reality — with sharp, acidic smells of chemical cleaner balanced out by herbal, minty scents and a piney back end. But it’s much more Clorox than Pine-Sol.
Flavor: Those ammonia-like qualities and piney characteristics combine for a funky sourness, with the chemical flavor slightly winning out and subtle notes of menthol joining the party.
Effects: Cheetah Piss starts off smooth and only somewhat relaxing, increasing my curiosity and excitement to converse for about thirty minutes before lulling me into a slower state of giggles and indecisiveness. The high is predictable after the first time, and best saved for the evening.
Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
Cheetah Piss is a rare evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created through crossing the iconic Lemonnade X Gelato 42 X London Poundcake 97 strains. Made as a homage to the infamous “Cat Piss” strain, Cheetah Piss packs a super potent high and pungent aroma that will leave your eyes watering. The high comes on fast and hard with a sense of expansive euphoria that launches you into a purely happy state. As your mind flies higher and higher a sense of clarity will wash over you, giving you the focus that you need to carry on any conversation or easily tackle anything on your to-do list. In combination with its super high 20% + average THC level, these effects give Cheetah Piss an edge in treating those patients suffering from conditions such as chronic fatigue, depression or mood swings, chronic stress and chronic pain. This bud has a sweet and creamy fruity flavor with a sour citrus exhale that lingers long after your final exhale. The aroma is very similar, although with a heavy pungency to it that’s accented by heavy diesel and gas as the nugs are broken apart and burned away. Cheetah Piss buds have bright neon green nugs with yellow orange hairs and frosty thick coating of golden amber crystal trichomes.
