All that is really known about this Indica dominant strain (70% to 90%) is that it is high CBD. The genetics behind it are quite mysterious, but those who have tried it sing its praises loudly, and it is easy to see its name comes from the vibrant green buds streaked with gold. It is one of the best strains for promoting not only relaxation, but also a full night’s rest, something that is commonly elusive in those who suffer from chronic pain or sleeplessness. The positive effects said to occur from this strain include becoming clear- headed, sleepiness, a feeling of calm, and a strong, relaxing body buzz. The smoke is less dense than other strains and is easy on the throat. The flavor of Swiss Gold is a cross somewhere between woodsy and earthy, perhaps with a slight amount of dampness mixed in. The aroma however is strong and lovely, prominently featuring pine needles and other types of coniferous trees.
