White Widow is a 1990s hybrid that's only gaining in popularity. It's no surprise, either. This strain is famous for its potent, yet very well-balanced high. The THC content of this strain can reach up to 25%.

White Widow has been popular among Amsterdam coffee shops since the 1990s. Though a Netherland's native, this strain quickly traveled across the pond to North America. A sativa-dominant hybrid, White Widow is a cross between a Brazillian heirloom strain and an Indian indica.

Get ready for a truly pleasant experience with White Widow. Uplifting, energetic, and creative this strain cultivates an almost psychedelic headspace. Yet, you'll still have plenty of wherewithal for engaged and intimate conversation. Recreational consumers will appreciate the sociability of this strain, as well as the expansive mood it cultivates.

As a well-balanced hybrid, White Widow also comes with a healthy dose of full-body relaxation. Though this strain is often thought to be more mental than physical, you're likely to feel your muscles loosen up. Many White Widow fans enjoy the light body numbness that this hybrid produces. Though this strain is energizing, the indica heritage adds calmness to an otherwise cerebral high.

Medical consumers have many reasons to love this strain. Patients have found it to be helpful with everything from PMS to mood disorders to Crohn's Disease. The high THC content in this bud may be responsible for the wide variety of medical effects. White Widow typically contains between 18 and 25% of the psychoactive.
