Origin: While it is still in the market as of today, the White Widow marijuana strain has definitely garnered a legendary status across the cannabis industry and is already seen as an instant classic. The White Widow comes from developers found in the Netherlands and they decided to crossbreed Brazilian and South Indian landrace genetics in order to produce the renowned White Widow. Throughout the years, it has since collected many awards including the 1995 Cannabis Cup.
Flowering Time: White Widow marijuana strain has a flowering period of up to eight weeks on average. Because it has a fairly balanced ratio of Indica and Sativa components, you will notice a number of mixed traits in its appearance. For one, the buds are somewhat tight, compact, and surrounded with white and sticky trichomes, hence the name. However, the plant is quite tall and its leaves spread and fan out like thin, long fingers. Touching the buds gives you a sticky, waxy feeling and the aroma gives off a strong, earthy smell. White Widow is known for its resilience and resistance to infestations, which makes it great for outdoor planting. White Widow produces a moderate yield that reaches up to 400 grams per plant when harvested during the days of mid-October.
Medical Properties: This classic strain is known for its powerful punch. Like all Sativa-dominant strains, White Widow has complex yet enjoyable effects. White Widow is great for treating mental illnesses due to the strong cerebral effects. It also helps people suffering from ADHD to focus more and it can lessen the fatigue that user’s experience by giving them quick energy charges. Because White Widow mainly targets the mind, it has been known to treat certain levels of migraines, headaches, and other chronic pain.
THC and CBD Percentage: White Widow is known for being one of the most potent marijuana strains out there. Some variations of the White Widow have been able to produce an amazing 25% of THC level. However, the general average of the White Widow’s THC level is usually around 18% to 20% range. While its CBD level is nothing surprising with a 0.8% level, it still does great as a medical strain.
Common Effects: White Widow has gained its fame and recognition for a reason. The classic smell and taste of the White Widow coupled with the amazing effects that it has made for an instant trip to marijuana heaven. Because of its high THC content, it would only take a couple of hits to get you high. White Widow’s effects can be described as euphoric and cerebral, often giving your mind many creative ideas and happy thoughts. It also helps lift a person’s mood and gives them a good amount of energy. This can be expected from a Sativa-dominant strain. However, the Indica in it does produce some relaxing effects that help users chill out. When you are feeling stressed, you can always count on White Widow to have your back. Although some may describe it as the strain the leaves you high and dry (eyes and mouth), this powerful flower gives a long-lasting high time than average.
