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 Braziliansativalandrace and a resin-heavy South Indianindica, 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.
“This strain is what got me smoking the weed well over a decade ago. It is one of the most perfectly balanced smoke's you can have. It gives you a head and body high in equal measure. I have always seen White Widow as the benchmark standard that you measure the quality of other strains by.”
