White Widow Strain
White Widow strain is genetically a hybrid with a slight Indica dominance. Winning the High Times Cup in 1995 and recognized as one of the most popular cannabis strains in the world. Descending from the heirloom breeds of South American (Sativa) and South Indian (Indica) heritage makes it a strain of balanced energy.
Though Indica genetics technically dominate White Widow’s composition, however, its effects surely do not represent your typical Indica strain, with a high that does anything but makes you tired, couch-locked, or lethargic. And White Widow has become legendary for its immense resin production with THC levels in the 20-25% range.
White Widow Review: Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
White Widow strain has a ‘skunkily pungent’ aroma, with a sophisticated hint of hempy spice and exotic equatorial berry. Breaking buds open gives off a more hashy, incense-like odor. The smooth smoke tastes similarly earthy – White Widow’s relative lack of flavor may disappoint users accustomed.
Sometimes, some batches of White Widow particularly have a fruity or spicy taste, feeling as if you have just bitten into a ripe peach or juicy apple, mixed in with spice like nutmeg or cinnamon. It entirely covered its buds in long-stalked trichomes, lending the whitish-gray appearance that gives the strain its memorable name.
This strain leaves a feeling of energized yet relaxed, in a state of complete euphoria that will allow you to function regularly–just with a slightly more positive overall energy.
This is an ideal choice for those seeking pot that will not cause tiredness, lethargy, or lack of energy, but a quintessentially happy, balanced medium that exists somewhere between relaxed and hyper-aware.
The most notorious relief this healing strain seems to provide is for individuals that suffer from:
- Chronic pain
Furthermore, consuming the White Widow strain will cause a dry mouth. Thus, drinking plenty of hydrating fluids will resolve this. Occasionally, some consumers may get dry eyes, applying moisturizing eye drops can ease this effect.
