Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: A truly amazing tasting strain, that doesn't so much taste like it's Cheese parent as it does skunky and hashy with a fruity undertone that lingers long after you've taken your last hit.
To achieve the internationally recognized strain, Nirvana bred a male Nepalese x Swiss Skunk strain named Swiss Miss with the renowned female UK Cheese strain. The result is a heavy-hitting, long-lasting indica-dominant strain that appeals to even the most seasoned of weed connoisseurs. While this strain is able to be successfully cultivated by beginning gardeners, to achieve top-shelf medication, a decent amount of experience is suggested. She grows with a fairly high calyx-to-leaf ratio, making for a simple and painless harvest. Swiss Cheese is suitable for indoor as well as outdoor growth, but prefers a more mild climate when she lives amongst Mother Nature. She’s also a great candidate for a Sea of Green garden, having minimal side-branching and typically producing a single, fat, top cola. Unlike many early-finishing strains, this marvelous plant will retain her extreme potency while flowering for as little as 6 weeks, but usually closer to 8.
This is one of those strains that is not a viable option if you’re trying to be discreet. Even in the jar, Swiss Cheese gives off a pungently citrusy, skunky and oily aroma that only intensifies upon smoking. When smoked, flavors of skunk, earth and fruit are present, however when vaporized, Swiss Cheese often has a predominantly rich chestnut musk flavor. While it won’t necessarily induce couch-lock, this bud is much better suited to be used as a nighttime or late-afternoon medication due to the heavily relaxing and somewhat sedative effects it provides.
