White Widow is a Hybrid marijuana strain. Popular in Amsterdam coffee shops and famous for its white trichomes, this strain is perfect for unwinding. With Indica effects and high THC content, this strain will leave you feeling happy and relaxed.

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 Experience


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, this strain 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.

 

Traits of White Widow and White Widow Seeds


This strain is so heavily coated in white crystals that it looks almost white — no doubt where its name came from. It can be hard to pick out any other details under those thick white trichomes, but marijuana consumers will notice light green leaves with few pistils. Despite the heavily resinous nugs, these fluffy buds can be broken open without too much hassle.

Not just sugary in appearance, this strain has sweet flavors and aromas, with hints of earthiness and spice. Novice marijuana consumers be warned — this weed can cause some serious coughing.

 

Medical Benefits of White Widow


Medical marijuana consumers have many reasons to love this strain. In fact, the high THC content in this bud may be responsible for the wide variety of medical effects.

  • Patients have found it to be helpful with everything from PMS to mood disorders to Crohn's Disease

  • This typically contains between 18 and 25% of the psychoactive THC, but this can also make it an effective anti-inflammatory

  • This strain can also be useful for treating insomnia
