White Widow is one of the best-known, and still one of the most potent, cannabis strains in the world. Originally created in the early 1990s, its release to the coffee-shops of Amsterdam was met with universal rave reviews as canna-tourists flocked in their thousands to find out whether all the advance publicity for this white strain was true. It was and remains so today. Bred by crossing a Brazilian sativa strain with a highly resinous South Indian indica it is named after the plant’s frosty appearance which makes it white with resin.
White Widow is designed for the utmost potency rather than any complex flavour profile although the smoke is very smooth and satisfying. The initial hit comes on fast and strong, which can leave anyone but the most experienced canna-seur needing to sit down, but this then slowly evolves into a very relaxing high ideal for enjoying music. It is an easy strain to grow almost anywhere. THC levels are high, around 20%.
Aromas and flavours
While White Widow gives off a fresh and floral aroma, her taste is richer, mixing bittersweet hints with very pleasant floral and fruity undertones.
Uplifting and Buzzing Effect
White Widow is also world-famous due to her amazingly relaxing and therapeutic properties. The physically powerful ‘high’ she delivers helps you to relax deeply and get into a long-lasting state of calmness. Perfect to fight insomnia, anxiety or stress problems.
The effects from smoking White Widow are consistent with that of the best sativa-dominant plants, offering users a steller, almost psychedelic high. Smokers will feel this in their head, with a cerebral wave washing over them. The flavour is clean and pine-fresh, with a hint of citrus on the exhale, making for an invigorating and tasty smoke experience.
