White Widow Marijuana Strain history starts in the Netherlands back in the 1990s. There it was bred as a hybrid strain making it one of Europe’s earliest cannabis imports. Experts contend that this strain is either a cross between South American Sativa and South Indian Indica while others say the sativa comes from Brazilian Sativa landrace.
While experts can’t come to a conclusion on its origin, people still love White Widow around the world. It’s become a staple in the Dutch coffee shop scene and was even featured both on the television show Weeds and in various rap songs.
Experiencing The White Widow Strain
If you like a steady cerebral high paired with a relaxing vivid buzz, you are going to love White Widow! Its high THC content (up to 19%) produces a powerful and lasting mental buzz that calms you down without locking you on the couch.
This is your classic ‘good times’ high and is known for inspiring creative bursts of energy and euphoric open-mindedness. The buzz is powerful but not overwhelming. And since it’s a hybrid buzz, you don’t get overwhelmed by any one experience but instead experience a balanced overall high.
If you enjoy daytime use and want something that won’t lock you inside, this is for you. One thing to consider is that the smoke starts off light but quickly expands and, if you aren’t an experienced smoker, can lead to some heavy coughing.
White Widow is an easy growing easygoing strain with little to no adverse reactions. On average, consistent use can lead to dry eyes, dry mouth (also known as cottonmouth), and dehydration. If you plan to enjoy on and off throughout the day, you can combat this with a couple swigs of water.
If you plan on heavy use and aren’t an experienced smoker, you might experience nervousness, mild paranoia, dizziness, and headaches. But that can be avoided by simply stopping smoking if any of these feelings start to appear.
White Widow Taste & Smell
This is one of those strains that looks beautiful. When picked, the flowers are covered in white crystals, so much so they look like they were dipped in sugar. That’s why the scent is so surprising. Where you expect a sugary or fruity aroma, you instead get a deeper more profound spice and earth scent mixed with pungent yet pleasing peppery touches.
The sweetness comes with the flavor. When smoked you’ll get a full mouth sugar feel (think of the powdered sugar feel when biting into a funnel cake). But the sweetness is only part of it. Under that cotton-candy exterior resides a deep fragrance filled with pine, lemon, and fruity sweetness you’ll come to know and love!
Uses for White Widow
The high THC content and long-lasting highs make White Widow a popular strain. It’s been told to help with an assortment of aches and ailments.
One thing we love is coming home after a long, hard day, and using this strain to unwind and relax. With it, you can battle your fatigue, alleviate stress, and still get stuff that needs doing around the house.
Over the years, literally thousands of marijuana strains have been discovered, hybridised, and smoked. It’s quite possible that no strain carries the same legendary status as White Widow. The origin of this strain remains a mystery to this day. White Widow Marijuana Strain
