Swazi female with developing trichomes
Purple Swazi

Swazi is a strain of cannabis grown in Swaziland and popular in South Africa.[1] Pronounced “swuh-zee”, and commonly referred to as “swaz”, Swazi is popular amongst South African cannabis smokers.

This pure sativa originates from South Africa's neighboring Swaziland. According to High Times, despite Swaziland's small size, it devotes more land to the growing of cannabis than India.[2] Given that it is grown outdoors in large quantities, the quality of the strain tends to be of a lower variety. Swazi is very rarely sold by the gram. It’s mostly sold by the bank bag, or very often in match boxes. It’s considered to be quite a harsh smoke, often very peppery in flavour, leaving one tired and sleepy.[1]
