White Widow is an award-winning strain that won the Cannabis Cup in 1995, shortly after it was first produced. It has large amounts of resin production, which has, over time, become its unique differentiating factor. 

Genetics and Origins 

This strain was produced as a result of cross-breeding between Brazilian Indica and South Indian Sativa. It was first bred in the Netherlands in the early 1990s. Its THC levels average between 15 and 23%, and it can have up to 1% CBD. 

White Widow is a Sativa-dominant hybrid with buds that are commonly spring green in color with bright orange trichomes. Despite the stickiness due to the resins, these buds can easily be broken off, making it one of the easiest strains to manufacture. The buds also tend to be rather fluffy and tapered in texture.

When fully grown, the buds are covered with a layer of trichomes that are long-stalked in shape, allowing the buds to adopt a silvery appearance. While this strain does not have a very strong aroma associated with it, when you rip off the buds, you will notice a metallic ammonia-like smell with slightly earthy undertones. 

White Widow Strain Effects 

After ingesting White Widow, users often notice the cerebral effect first. It stimulates feelings of happiness, euphoria, and energy, leading to good conversations and bursts of creativity. You may find yourself wanting go to on a walk, chat with friends, or complete tasks around the house. 

Most Sative strains are commonly associated with a fruity taste, but the White Widow has a more earthy taste. Although not strong, you may also get hints of pepper and spice. The smoke of the White Widow is very pungent and can be smelled from relatively large distances. 

Some of the terpenes in this strain include alpha-bisabolol, beta-caryophyllene, linalool, and myrcene, which make it ideal for treating anxiety, stress, chronic pain, seizures, and insomnia. 

Information for Growers 

White Widow can be cultivated by growers of any level due to its hardy nature and resistance to mold and pests. It likes warm, humid climates with temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees. This plant grows on the shorter side, instead spreading out and becoming rather bushy. 

You can grow this strain indoors or outdoors. If grown inside, it flowers in about nine weeks. If grown outside, it’s typically ready for harvest in early October. 

When grown well, White Widow can yield around 22-25 ounces of cannabis per square meter of plant.
