The unique high from White Widow is typically upbeat and mesmerizing, and will relax your body without causing your mind to want to fall asleep.
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.
White Widow is a euphoric, downright stimulating strain, making any reality you might be living in totally and completely enhanced — in a positive way.
Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
White Widow marijuana has a ‘skunkily pungent aroma,’ with a sophisticated hint of hempy spice and exotic equatorial berry. In fact, the aroma of White Widow marijuana is so dynamic that most any stoner could probably sense its presence within a range of about 300 square yards.
certain batches of White Widow express a particularly 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.
Buds of White Widow are chunky and somewhat conical and tapered. The bud structure of the flowers are more sativa than indica, with a loose and fluffy texture that can be broken up somewhat easily despite its stickiness. The leaves are spring green with few visible pistils.
When grown successfully, buds are entirely covered in long-stalked trichomes, lending the whitish-gray appearance that gives the strain its memorable name.
Medical Benefits of White Widow Cannabis
Although White Widow marijuana has been explored for use with numerous medicinal conditions in the past, the most notorious relief this healing strain seems to provide is for individuals that suffer from:
- Chronic pain
For those handling psychological conditions (depression, anxiety, stress, PTSD), a small to average-sized dose of this cannabis strain is probably best, as over-consuming marijuana when dealing with a mental condition can sometimes lead to greater paranoia and anxiety.
Effects of White Widow Cannabis
What this strain lacks in flavor profile, it makes up for in quick-acting cerebral effects. Users can become more acutely perceptive of their surroundings, tuned into sounds and patterns that may have gone unnoticed before. Enthusiasts also describe an almost immediate uplift in mood and an energy and focus that can applied to either mundane tasks like cleaning or more complex problem-solving processes. White Widow can also be creatively valuable, inducing a kind of rapid-fire thought association that can open up some previously unexplored territory. Psychedelic effects like visual distortion and increased perception can amplify the impact of music or art, while a very mild body buzz mellows users out. Because of its deeply cerebral effects, this strain is typically more psychologically than physically helpful. It can aid those with attention deficit disorders in sustaining focus on a single topic. It can also boost energy in cases of fatigue or depression. Some users have even described White Widow as efficient in relieving migraines. Because of its potency, the introspective mind-race associated with White Widow can sometimes veer into paranoia, and smokers may want to plan dosage accordingly.
Unsurprisingly, the most common side effects that have been reported from White Widow marijuana include dry mouth, dry eyes, and paranoid. If you are experiencing these effects, be sure to stay hydrated and drink plenty of fluids.
