White Widow is a mind blowing marijuana strain that has a very unique and mild smell that is quite unforgettable. White Widow’s accolades are likely the reason it is still one of the most commonly grown strains to date.
Visually it is nothing short of stunning. This is quite possibly the most trichome heavy bud on the market. It has dense trichome coverage over the entirety of the plant. This extreme abundance of trichomes gives it its medium-high potency.
Among the most famous strains worldwide is White Widow, a balanced hybrid first bred in the Netherlands by Green House Seeds. A cross between a Brazilian sativa landrace and a resin-heavy South Indian indica, It has blessed every Dutch coffee shop menu since its birth in the 1990s. Its buds are white with crystal resin, warning you of the potent effects to come. A powerful burst of euphoria and energy breaks through immediately, stimulating both conversation and creativity. White Widow’s genetics have given rise to many other legends like White Russian, White Rhino, and Blue Widow. Still, many growers prefer cultivation of the original White Widow, which flowers in about 60 days indoors.
However White Widow can be grown from seed or from clone. It is a mold-resistant strain, making outdoor cultivation an option — although an almost Mediterranean climate with constant temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit works best. Despite a mostly sativa high, White Widow look much more indica during the vegetative stage: plants are bushy and wide, and rarely exceed 6 feet in height. The plants flower within 9 weeks when grown indoors and are ready for harvest in early October when grown outdoors. Growers can expect about 37 to 55 grams (or about 1.3 to 2 ounces) per square foot of plant.
