WHITE WIDOW CANNABIS STRAIN
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. The combination of these unique traits is what led the strain to its name.
FRAGRANCE AND FLAVOUR
White Widow emits a strong smell that reminds users of earthy undertones blended with sandalwood and herbs and spices.
Although fruit is a component of the strain, some people feel it’s more evident in the odor while others believe the fruit is in the flavor.
Those who do notice the fruity aroma compare it to tropical fruits blends or oranges. When smoking White Widow, the initial taste is sweet citrus, but it quickly gives way to more savory flavors of earth, pine wood, and flowers.
Most users feel the blend is just right and contributes to a positive smoking experience, although some report feeling as if the smoke is slightly harsh. Luckily, smoking accessories often ease that feeling.
Benefits of the White Widow Strain
Many smokers see additional benefits when using White Widow. Some users have been able to smoke the strain to help:
Manage chronic joint and muscle pain related to fibromyalgia
Manage chronic fatigue syndrome
In addition to possible pain-relieving side effects, some people who suffer from anxiety, depression or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder report a reduction in symptoms when smoking White Widow.
Now that you know where it comes from, what it smells and tastes like and how it may affect you, try White Widow for yourself.
