White Widow

Developed in 1994 by Green House Seeds/Coffeeshop in Amsterdam, White Widow has gone on to win prizes and become one of the most popular and notorious strains in the world.

Called “white” due to its heavy resin content as well as its tendency to not fully color up when ready to harvest, White Widow is known for being extremely potent.  A solid producer of connoisseur-quality buds, it has been popular in European cannabis shops for many years and has been used in many breeding projects to increase the potency and vigor of other varieties as well.  While not an outstanding yielder, it stays relatively short and compact, making it a good choice for home grows.  The males are said to be best for breeding because the females are not known for their smell and taste… the male will often lend the potency and trichomes of the strain while retaining the flavor terpenes of the chosen mother plant.

A blend of fruit and musky, almost sour qualities — it hints at its potency with the smell, which has more of a bite to it than many fruity-smelling strains.  At times, it’s all lemons and a forest floor mixed with a dank hash aroma depending on the phenotype.

The high in this variety is what sets it apart and keeps it apart from the others. Cerebral and uplifting, this strain is powerful and consistent.  Though White Widow keeps you mentally active and positive, it often comes with a strong couchlock tendency, especially later in the duration.  If harvested late, this strain can be especially narcotic for a sativa and can make it better for a late night puff or two.

Growing indoors is best for this variety and it flowers more quickly than when grown outdoors. It is best to keep the moisture level low as Northern Lights is prone to mildew and its recommended to fertilize on a lighter note to let the true flavors of this variety shine through.

White Widow’s flowering time is 7-9 weeks when grown indoors.

If you are an outdoor grower, it is ready for harvest by the end of October.

White Widow is considered a low to moderate yield variety and is truly one to grow at least once.
