1000+ happy customers
White Widow is a legend, and so, has easily been one of the most in-demand strains for decades. And, thankfully, it’s a strain that’s every bit deserving of its reputation. One of the absolute best hybrids out there, it’s a must-have if you’ve never had the pleasure of its sweet and soothing effects. Let’s explore White Widow more closely as you’re likely to add it to your list as soon as you’re done reading this article.
White Widow Basics
White Widow is a hybrid that leans ever so slightly toward the sativa end of the spectrum. It’s estimated to be somewhere around 55% sativa-dominant, although 50/50 phenotypes do exist. White Widow is known for its impressive THC potency, which is usually around 25%, although earlier forms of the strain typically capped off at 20%. In fact, White Widow was one of the first ultra-potent strains to enter circulation, which has a lot to do with why it quickly rose to acclaim around the world. The strain comes from crossing Shiva Skunk with Northern Lights #5, and any connoisseur will tell you that it’s quite an impressive linage.
It’s named after its appearance, as the nugs have a cloudy white appearance thanks to the impressive coating of milky trichome crystals that coat gorgeous mint green cannabis buds.
Growing White Widow Seeds
White Widow can be grown both indoors and outdoors, but requires the right humidity levels and temperatures between 68°F -77°F. White Widow typically flowers in 8-9 weeks. When trichomes turn milky white and about 10%-20% turn amber, it's harvest time.
Flavor & Aroma
White Widow is known for its really distinctive and unusual flavor and aroma that are, thankfully, extremely appealing and appetizing. There is an undeniable muskiness that’s extremely pungent, and very characteristic of the strain. You will notice sweet fruity notes in flavor and aroma on top of that muskiness, and strong notes of pepper and bright lemons that offer a sour and spicy kick.
White Widow Uses and Effects
White Widow is extremely uplifting, and can make the user feel relaxed, tingly, and mellow. For night-time use, a White Widow high can mean waking up in the middle of the night since it typically starts off with something of an energy boost. It’s also an excellent wake-and-bake strain since rather than feeling groggy and unfocused, the effects from this cannabis strain can actually make a person feel motivated, calm and collected, as well as super focused. The White Widow strain’s effects can be quite long-lasting, and overall, the strain is preferred as a solid daytime option for people looking to feel relaxed but not sleepy.
What Can You Expect When Taking White Widow?
Since White Widow contains higher amounts of THC than most other sativa-dominant strains, you can expect a high with euphoric and creativity-boosting effects. However, the strength of the ‘high’ will depend on your genetics and tolerance. The most noticeable aspect of the strain is the general uplifting effects, as opposed to the stoned type of relaxing feeling associated with many other long-time classic strains. Expect to get some cottonmouth, and even prepare for some coughing since the strain can be quite harsh when inhaled.
White Widow: She’s Worth the Hype for Hybrid Lovers
White Widow is a true hybrid in every sense of the word, giving you a really nice feeling of both euphoria and focused relaxation. Because of that, it’s surprisingly versatile, although we ultimately don’t recommend it at night because it may interfere with being able to fall asleep. And, despite its extreme potency, it really is quite easygoing, with paranoia and similar side effects being rare. So, if you’re ready to see what all of the fuss is about with this iconic cultivar, now you know what you can expect once its awesome effects kicks in. Grab White Widow here at ELYXR when vaping with a 90% HHCP Disposable .5 Grams (500mg) or smoking a 1 Gram Joint (325mg THC-A).
