Famed for delivering a sense of contentment and tranquillity in equal measures, White Widow is the kind of staple with which you know exactly what you’re getting. Potent, fragrant and undeniably delicious, the fact that White Widow is also comparatively easy to grow only serves as an added bonus. When it comes to both recreational and medical cannabis use alike, this is one strain that really needs no introduction whatsoever.
White Widow Origins
Unsurprisingly, the origins of White Widow cannabis can be traced back to the Netherlands. Dutch engineers brought together a sativa strain from South America and an indica from India, in order to produce what would go on to become a legend among legends. You the only need to glance at a White Widow plant to know exactly how it got its name – a thick and luxurious coating of frosted white crystals coating its buds and many of its leaves. The widow part clearly referring to its ability to knock unsuspecting newcomers well and truly off their feet.
White Widow is a relatively balanced hybrid, though comes in at approximately 40% sativa and 60% indica. The common assumption that it is a 50/50 hybrid isn’t quite accurate. Having been a staple in Amsterdam for more than 30 years, it didn’t take long for White Widow to gain traction on a global basis. In fact, try and find even an entry-level cannabis smoker that hasn’t heard of White Widow and you’re in for a challenge!
White Widow Effects
Of course, White Widow wouldn’t have become legendary if it wasn’t for the fact that it packs a serious punch. Rather than the kind of overpowering hit you can’t fully enjoy, White Widow makes its mark with an instant sense of tranquil relaxation, followed by cheerful and happy contentedness the likes of which is moreish to say the least. A fantastic social smoke, White Widow is known to boost creativity, invigorate the senses and simply take you to a better place for the duration.
Even when hit relatively hard, White Widow is not the kind of strain that leads to couch lock. Which means that rather than sitting around doing very little, you’ll want to get up, socialise with others and make the most of every minute of your time. Which is precisely why White Widow has become a staple among Amsterdam’s coffee shops – it encourages socialising and creates an energetic, friendly and beautifully relaxed atmosphere.
White Widow Medical Uses
White Widow also enjoys legendary status in medical cannabis circles, having been recognised for its capacity to treat a wide variety of mood disorders and psychological issues. What’s more, its uplifting and energising characteristics make it great for dealing with daytime fatigue, along with periodic cases of writer’s block. If you need inspiration for pretty much anything at all, you need only reach for White Widow. Plus, if you simply want to relax and feel slightly less tense after a hard day, White Widow ticks all the right boxes – without knocking you out.
White Widow Flavour and Fragrance
As already touched upon, it’s the simply stunning appearance of White Widow that the strain is perhaps most famous for. Nevertheless, it has an aroma and flavour profile that takes its appeal to an even higher level. There’s a distinct sugary fragrance to White Widow, which bursts into life with a pungent hit of spicy earth when burnt. The flavour delivers exactly what you’d expect – sweetness and earthy tones in equal measures, often with a huge hit of pine and an aftertaste that’s not dissimilar to sugar.
In terms of both its effects and its flavour profile, White Widow really is no less than an absolute joy and pleasure to smoke.
Growing White Widow
Those lucky enough to live in regions where cannabis cultivation is legal will find White Widow an absolute gift to grow. Even beginners with absolutely no experience whatsoever will find it takes minimum effort to produce exceptional yields of extraordinary quality. White Widow plants are highly durable and forgiving, making them suitable for the vast majority of indoor environments. Outdoors, you’ll need to live somewhere at least as warm and sunny as the Mediterranean.
Mature plants rarely tend to reach beyond about 40 inches in height and are therefore suitable for small grow spaces. The flawless control of climactic conditions isn’t strictly necessary, though you’ll need to provide White Widow plants with plenty of high quality light for them to reach their best. Flowering times come in at a generously low 60 days, with one square metre of grow space being sufficient to put out around 18 ounces of cannabis. Grown outdoors, you can expect yields around 15% more generous.
