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, White Widow 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.
Considered by many to have a 60% Sativa (mind) / 40% Indica (body) ratio, the White Widow strain is full-bodied medicine that can be a bit spacey. This makes it popular among patients suffering from anxiety, PTSD, chronic aches and pains, as well as migraines.
All of those medicinal benefits wrapped up in a delicious sweet-tasting smoke and you start to realize why the White Widow marijuana strain is so ubiquitous in the cannabis community.
