To this day, White Widow seeds are amongst the most treasured feminized seeds on the marijuana market. Amazingly, just a few years after White Widow entered the Dutch scene, it won the highly coveted 1995 Cannabis Cup. Users immediately fell in love with White Widow’s long-lasting euphoric high, earthy aromatics, and, of course, trichome-loaded appearance. Interestingly, even though the weed is super popular, cannabis experts still aren’t 100 percent sure of the strain’s genetics. Most cultivators believe, however, White Widow is the result of a cross between a feminized variety of Brazilian sativa and South Indian indica landraces. This roughly 50:50 indica-to-sativa ratio accounts for White Widow’s balanced effects and quick grow time.
