White Widow is a legendary strain that has won several awards, including the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1995. It is a sticky resin-heavy strain bred for its incredibly high trichrome count and is used heavily by hash makers.
White Widow has all the benefits of an Indica-dominant strain, including a comforting buzz that’s perfect for treating chronic pain. Its Sativa component offers users a cerebral high that keeps them able to focus and converse, even in the height of its effects.
The average THC content for White Widow is around 20%, making it a superb choice for users who want a comfortable high that doesn’t leave them unable to function. Under the best conditions, White Widow can reach a THC content of 25%.
The CBD range for White Widow is fairly low, between 0% and 1%.
White Widow is a genetic blend of Brazilian Landrace Sativa and South Indian Indica. It was first developed in the 90s by a famous Dutch seed company called Green House Seeds.
Though White Widow contains more Sativa genetics than Indica genetics, it looks more like a bushy Indica plant during its vegetative stage. It spends between 8 and 9 weeks in the flowering stage, which is punctuated by sugar-dipped buds that give the strain its name. When grown indoors, this plant can yield up to 500 grams per plant, and when grown outdoors, it can yield up to 700 grams per plant.
