Ranges in strength due to how diluted the genes are, but having not seen it grow I can't say how much it varies from the Swaziland sativa. GSC did a cool expedition to Swaziland and fun some amazing weed there. Potency varies according to how long the plant had to flower, generally the later copper/gold coloured heads (amber trichs) make you very heavy indica stoned. Not sure if this is due to the THC-V in the african landraces. Difficult to grow this pure sativa indoors, so much more suited to moderate climates. Taste is normally spicy with the woody tastes that african landrace sativas have.
THC: 14% - 18%Swazi Gold is a 100% pure sativa strain that descends directly from a native African Landrace. This bud is a favorite of breeders because of its classic effects and moderate THC level of 14-18% and has been used to parent many award-winning sativas. The Swazi Gold aroma is has classic and zesty feel, with a sweet citrusy overtone that has earthy fruity hints as the nugs are broken apart. The taste is of sweet zesty citrus that has a sharp yet satisfying bite on exhale. Swazi Gold buds have long and lumpy foxtail-shaped musty green nugs with a thick layer of rich amber hairs and a frosty coating of sandy fine crystal white trichomes. The Swazi Gold high comes on quick with a fast-acting and hard-hitting uplifted energized euphoria felt in the forehead and behind the eyes. This bud is often described as having the perfect high for outdoors activities such as hiking or swimming due to its strong, shining, and relaxing effects. You'll feel energized and motivated with a high level of alertness and clarity yet you won't be anxious or paranoid. Because of these powerful sativa effects, Swazi Gold is a favorite for treating chronic fatigue, appetite loss, chronic pain, and mild to moderate cases of depression.
