White Widow is a hybrid strain that many have been familiar with since the early 90’s. This strain has global popularity and can easily be found atop a menu at almost any Amsterdam coffee shop. The prevalence of this strain has greatly increased due to the television show Weeds and references within the rap industry. It gets its name from the fact that it is literally blanketed in white crystals. When it comes to smell, you can expect a citrus and peppery scent that is accompanied by a lemony aftertaste.
White Widow Effects & Benefits
This strain holds a pretty balanced 60:40 sativa/indica ratio ( Brazil Sativa X South Indian Indica) that leads one to a cognitive driven high with a relaxing undertone. Patients will opt for White Widow if they’re seeking a strain that allows them to unwind and relax while still maintaining a sense of mental awareness. This strain is especially good for depression, stress, pain, and PTSD. Beware though, this sweet sugary smoke starts out light but expands dramatically which can lead to heavy coughing; especially if you’re a novice smoker. This strain is perfect for outdoor activities like hanging out at the beach or taking a nice walk.
