Swiss Cheese #2 was sent to us as part of a sample package in exchange for an honest review. Therefore, we cannot comment on delivery times. However, we checked their website and found their shipping options:
- 1st Class Signed For: £2.11
- Standard European Shipping 3-5 Days Untracked: £3.03
- Guaranteed Next Day Delivery: £6.50
The hemp buds are packaged in small, resealable aluminium pouches that have been heat-sealed. A sticker on the front displays ‘UNCLE HERB’ and the strain name with CBD percentage.
I tried Uncle Herb’s previous version of Swiss Cheese and, while I enjoyed it, the quality of the bud was lacking, along with the smell. This #2 version, which has been grown indoors rather than in a greenhouse like #1, has a much better appearance (and smell).
The sample we received contained a number of small to medium-sized buds. The first thing I noticed about them was a shimmering layer of trichomes covering every inch. They were also compact and dense, with small orange hairs seen between then resin-laden crystals.
Overall, these buds looked impressive. Dense and frosty, if a little on the small size.
Unlike some hemp strains that can be lacking in the aroma department, these 12% CBD buds produced a great smell. I found the strong cheese smell reminds me of a classic UK Cheese variety.
Taste (smoking vs vaping)
With such a thick coating of trichomes over these buds, I couldn’t wait to try them in a joint and vape. And I was not disappointed. Any cheese-lovers out there will love these buds.
Swiss Cheese #2 was a pleasure to smoke, with only a slight harshness to it. I backrolled it with a super thin Rizzla with nothing else and was blown away by the taste.
Smooth and cheesy. A really great strain for smoking.
Vaping was even more impressive. Those resinous buds produced huge clouds reliable for a good couple of minutes worth of pulls. And the taste was just as cheesy, yet smoother.
A got a nice little buzz from these flowers. 12% CBD isn’t the highest on the market but Swiss Cheese #2 makes up for it with its high concentration of terpenes, flavonoids and other essential oils.
Especially after vaping, I was chilled, happy and energetic
At £11 per gram, Swiss Cheese #2 is a good deal for such a high-quality flower. Plus £2.11 for First Class shipping and it comes out as slightly expensive when compared to the market.
Uncle Herb has a wonderful CBD strain here that not only looks the part but has the taste and effects to go with it.
This is a beautiful flower, thick with trichomes and exploding with cheesy dankness.
