Aroma, Flavor, and Main Terpenes

The weed aroma is quite rich and reminiscent of pears and honey with spicy and herbal notes. These scents are brought by the dominant caryophyllene terpene. It makes the flavor too pungent and peppery, which is not for everyone. There is also a cheese overtone that lingers long after each toke. This odor is affected by linalool and limonene.

Swamp Thing Effects and Medical Uses

The Swamp Thing strain provides an immediate euphoric boost that makes smokers happy and energetic. Due to the enhanced mood, people become excessively talkative. This marijuana is strong and affects both minds and bodies. Then, as if proving its name, the kush drags users down to a deep swamp of physical relaxation and triggers an insane bout of munchies.

The strain is indispensable in reducing symptoms of various diseases and debilitating medical conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines
  • Pain
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Stress
  • Lack of appetite

This weed should be taken with care; otherwise, it may trigger unwanted reactions such as:

  • Insomnia

  • Dry eyes
  • Hunger

Cultivation Facts

In its bloom cycle, the Swamp Thing strain takes 54-65 flowering days on average. The harvest can be anticipated 71 days after germination.

They feature mint-green buds that are shaped like grapes with a coating of orange hairs.
