The roots of this legendary strain is a cross between landrace strains, a Brazilian indica and South Indian sativa.
White Widow is a heavy hitter in regards to THC content with an average composition of 20%. Its white, crystal resin-covered buds should be a warning of its potency.
With a short flowering period of around 9 weeks, it also requires minimal maintenance. It’s suggested to be a great first-time crop for newbies.
It also delivers a heavy yield, varying between 550-600g a plant if grown outdoors with lots of light. If you are concerned with temperature, it’s not an issue with this tough girl. She grows outside comfortably in the UK. Also, it is a mould-resistant strain.
This being said, it will perform better in warmer climates. And it can reach a height of 2 metres, so if you’re looking at keeping your crop a secret, make sure you have tall walls.
As mentioned, this is a heavy resin bud. It is not a subtle cannabis smell when being smoked, so for those looking to be discrete, take extra measures.
The bud itself is not very fagarent, but the high is what makes White Widow a legend.
Fans of the strain describe an almost immediate uplift in mood, and that mundane tasks or complex ones are conquered with ease, as it supplies energy in bulk.
It’s also been known, through its psychedelic effects, to impact enjoyment of art and music.
For novice smokers, this cerebral effect means that you can veer badly into a paranoid state, so plan accordingly.
If you’re looking to get into marjiuana growing and take a trip on your own supply, this is the strain for you.
