White Widow cannabis strain is a legendary 60/40 Sativa dominant hybrid. It was first bred in the Netherlands in the early ’90s, and rumoured to be created in the mountains of Kerala. Buds are conical and fully soaked in resin and a blanket of white trichomes, making for a sparkler of an herb. White Widow has a smooth exhale that won’t cause coughing, and an overall pepper and lemon taste and smell. It can treat nausea, pain, PTSD, and stress. This strain is great for daytime or evening use.
Originally created by legendary breeder Shantibaba when he was co-owner of Green House Seeds, Black Widow was then known as White Widow. When Shantibaba left GHS and found Mr. Nice Seeds, he took the original Brazilian sativa mother and South Indian indica-dominant hybrid father with him to recreate his world renowned White Widow seeds. Because GHS and others were selling seeds with the name White Widow, he changed the name to Black Widow to create a distinction between them. Black Widow is now considered by many to be the only “true” White Widow available in seed form, as Mr. Nice is the lone seed breeder to possess the original parental genetics.
