As you might guess, this 100% pure indica is indigenous to Switzerland and is a classic landrace that is highly sought after all over the world. Although the THC and CBD levels are often unknown, these strains tend to have pretty heavy effects in both body and mind. This particular strain simply known as Swiss is brought to us by our friends at Nirvana Seeds.
The Swiss indica palette boasts many flavors from pungent to sweet, with floral notes and spiciness. The sugary sweet earthy tones burst on both your tongue and nose and are complimented even further by herbal overtones and a smoky aftertaste. The nugs typically vary in size and color depending on the breeder, however these particular nugs fall in the medium to large range, and are minty green to forest green with bright orange hairs and crystal trichomes.
Pure indicas have a relatively predictable high, slow spreading and tingly, and this strain is right on the money. The buzz begins in the back of the neck, then spreads throughout the limbs and into the digits, elevating the user’s mood and sedating their body into a full couch lock. The warmness ebbs and flows through the long-lasting high until you eventually fall into an insanely deep slumber.
Users love this strain for its wide-ranging medical uses. As it is a heavy sedative, Swiss is great for pain, insomnia, muscle spasms, inflammation, and cramping. It has the ability to soothe the mind while completely easing body pain. Because it is also considered a mood booster, this strain is also beneficial to those who struggle with depression, anxiety, stress, and bipolar disorder. New users are cautioned to take this strain of cannabis slowly as it is a sneaker and can become overwhelming very quickly.
This strain is an easy enough grow if you have the right environmental factors in play. As it is a Swiss landrace, it tends to enjoy cooler to tepid climates. Indoor harvest time is around 8 to 9 weeks with an outdoor harvest being around mid to late October. The yield is high, so get your baskets ready, as there will be plenty to fill them up.
If you love a good indica, this will check all the boxes for you. It is soothing yet energetic, uplifting yet calm, and will round out your day with an ideal night of sleep. It is all of the juxtapositions that make a good end of day smoke fest. Because it is highly floral, try it with a citrus blunt wrap for an extra kick of flavor.
