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.

Legendary for its off-the-charts resin production, White Widow is a staple sativa-dominant hybrid with powerful energizing effects. It was produced by Dutch veterans Green House Seeds in the 1990s as a cross between Brazilian indica and South Indian sativa landraces. At the time, the underground cannabis market consisted mostly of early hybrids like Northern Lights and Haze, but White Widow has since joined the ranks of these legendary strains, winning an early High Times Cannabis Cup in 1995 and several awards since. Bred specifically for a high trichome count, White Widow is especially valued in the production of hash. This strain has an average THC composition of 20%, with some phenotypes exceeding that amount.
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. White Widow is known for having a stinging, ammonia-like scent with some hints of earthy pine. Breaking buds open gives off a more hashy, incense-like odor. The smooth smoke tastes similarly earthy — users accustomed to fruity or tasty crossbreeds may be disappointed by White Widow’s relative lack of flavor. That said, White Widow is especially pungent when combusted, so smokers worried about discretion should plan accordingly.

Hybrids are a primary marijuana strain type that live between indicas and sativas. Hybrid strains are classified by their ability to produce a unique balance of indica and sativa effects. Hybrids can be both energizing and relaxing, depending on their specific strain lineage. Use Leafly’s strain explorer tool to discover all the varieties of hybrid strains and their effects.
Please read this, it’s important. Cannabis is a controlled substance in all 50 states. Do not carry it on your person and do not transport it in your car. If at all possible avoid leaving your home while intoxicated. It is strongly discouraged to drive a vehicle while high or any other machinery. Keep away from children, especially edibles. Keep away from unsuspecting adults. Always consume the strict minimum and always clear your schedule before consuming. Cannabis cannot hurt you, but avoid consuming large quantities at once. Cannabis vapor or smoke are not good for your lungs. The only good thing for your lungs is clean fresh air. Stay safe and stay smart.
All of our plants are grown indoor and some strains in light depravation grow tents. We do not use chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers. We use capsaicin (hot peppers) pesticides and natural fertiliser. All of our plants are grown in a sustainable and organic matter in soil. As compared to other companies in our industry our prices tend to be higher, but that’s a direct result of a higher quality grow process.

The main difference between the two types of cannabis is their effect. Indica strains tend to be more of a body high and produce a lethargic feeling in users. Sativa, on the other hand, can help stimulate a consumer who smokes this product. The aroma or scent difference between the two species can exist but it is more of a general rule of thumb than an exact scientific guide to the different species.
