White Widow Strain | White Widow Strain Review
The origin of the White Widow strain is somewhat of a mystery. The most commonly told story is that of the renowned breeder and founder of Green House Seed Company, Shantibaba. Rumor has it that he was vacationing when he found the mother plant, a Brazilian Sativa. He then sourced a South Indian, Indica-dominant hybrid near the mountains of Kerala.
Although there are some skeptics, most people accept the rumor as truth. Although the specific geographic origin of the two parent strains is a bit fuzzy, knowledge of where and when it was bred is concrete. Shantibaba created the hybrid strain in Amsterdam in the early 1990s. The buds of White Widow do not take on full color and always appear paler than many other strains, even when ready to harvest. They also create tiny crystals that resemble sugar.
SMELL, TASTE AND EFFECT OF WHITE WIDOW STRAIN
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 — cannabis consumers accustomed to fruity or tasty crossbreeds may be disappointed by White Widow Strain’s relative lack of flavor. That said, White Widow is especially pungent when combusted, so smokers worried about discretion should plan accordingly.
The smell of White Widow Strain is incredibly pungent and savory, with some piney undertones and just a hint of spice. Once smoked, the delicious flavor is sweet and fruity, and it leaves behind a slightly sugary aftertaste. Despite White Widow’s sweet flavor, it definitely packs a punch so coughing might be inevitable.
Immediately after smoking, you will experience a burst of energy and euphoria leaving you feeling uplifted, conversational, and creative. If you have any anxiety or stress, you can kiss that goodbye after a few puffs of white widow.
However, after a while the effects become heavier and you may end up stuck on the couch for a while if you’re not already engaged in some sort of activity. Of course, whether or not you’re couch locked depends on many factors: how you consume it (smoke, vape, edibles, etc.), your tolerance level, and how it’s grown.
