Today, there are tens of thousands of varieties of marijuana. While breeders developed most of the hybrids, some occurred naturally. Also, the earliest ones are typically indigenous to its region. These are the landrace strains that have served as the genetic base for many generations.
For decades, breeders have searched the four corners of the earth for previously undiscovered strains. Some of the most notable ones are Afghani, South American, Thai, and so much more. A lesser known one is the Swiss Indica that is native to the Alps. To be clear, there are also other varieties in the region that leans towards the Sativa too.
As it has yet to hit the mainstream market, there is not much information out on the Swiss Indica. Needless to say, these are exceptionally potent cannabis and incredibly relaxing.

The Swiss Indica contains a massive amount of THC. At 28.92%, users should not take it for granted. Even when used in moderation, its effects are intense and can prove to be overwhelming for some people especially the beginners.
While it is a pure Indica strain, it does make its presence felt by beginning with a gentle clear-headed high. It is quickly followed by a reinvigorating rush that is reminiscent of mild Sativa hybrids.
Gradually, a warm buzz from the back of the head sends a tingling sensation down the spine. As it spreads all over the body, users begin to feel uplifted and have a cheerful demeanor. All this time, most are likely to be quite active and can focus on tasks.
As the Indica properties begin to intensify, it may give users a euphoric rush. That is until it wholly takes effects. Once it does, the numbing and sedating properties of Swiss Indica now leaves users on a couch-lock. At this point, one cannot do anything else but to bask in pure bliss. Before the psychedelic high completely wears off, most people are likely to have fallen asleep.
The strain does not only contain psychoactive compounds. It also has others that bring a wealth of medical benefits, one of which is pain relief. It is this ability that makes it beneficial for those suffering from chronic illnesses. The anti-inflammatory properties it has soothes muscles which result in relaxation. At the same time, it also takes away inflammation and thus can provide comfort.
Once users begin to feel relaxed, the mood swing is remarkable. It is in that way that can wipe out stress. To a certain degree, this can also be helpful in managing conditions such as depression.
Some people have trouble sleeping. The Swiss Indica strain can put an end to the struggles of getting quality sleep.
