Blue Widow is a favorite strain that provides consumers with both uplifting and calming effects. These flowers will have a strong sweet aroma that may also include sour citrus or pine. The buds can be colorful, with tints of blue and purple, and should have a coat of long orange hairs. Slightly indica-dominant, this Widow plays against type, growing taller than most indicas and providing more mental, heady effects. In higher doses, the blissful relaxation this strain provides may lead to drowsiness and help you get to sleep. A cross between Blueberry and White Widow, Blue Widow is sometimes also called Berry White, White Berry, and Blue Venom.
“I have debilitating neuropathic pain in my hands and feet from an emergency medical drug called Levophed. I am facing digital amputations as probable for my future.
My experience with Blue Widow is that it is THE MOST EFFECTIVE PAIN KILLER for neuropathy ("false nerve pain") of any cannabis strain. And it does not make me clumsy as do most Indicas. This is my new favorite, hands down.”
