White Widow was first introduced in 1994 by former co-owner of Greenhouse Seeds and founder of The Mr. Nice Seedbank, Shantibaba. Though the origins of white widow spark wide debate, the topic is irrelevant when getting down to the nitty-gritty. The lineage of this icon, however, is not debated what- so-ever and it is well known that White Widow is a cross of a Southern Brazilian sativa landrace and a South Indian Indica landrace. Combining these two meticulously selected strains resulted in a cultivar so famous, it is available in almost every seedbank in the world. Though there has been controversy over who actually created this beast of a plant, one thing remains, White Widow is a staple in the industry and has been used as a cross to create many of the hybridized variations available today, such as: White Rhino, Great White Shark, Moby Dick, White Russian, and Blue Widow.
White Widow offers a heavy sedating and cerebral stone unlike any other. Euphoria and dull energy come on quickly with the first few puffs. Because of its fast onset, it is easy to gauge your dosage which is helpful for newer users. On that same note, however, a quick onset is only followed by the stacking of effects for the user who chooses to delve deeper.

This smoke is perfect for social situations, or for bed time assistance. Breaking out these bright-white, resin covered buds are sure to be a warning sign of the sheer potency that lies ahead!
