White Widow became a super popular strain in the market due to its frosty trichomes and dark green foliage
The Original White Widow strain was developed by crossing Brazilian Sativa with a South Indian indica to fuse two distinct regions of Cannabis landraces.
White Widow was bred by Shantibaba while he worked with Greenhouse Seed Co. and went on to win the Cannabis Cup over 25 years ago in 1995.
White Widow is reported to be a creative and energizing strain with gradual relaxing effects. For this reason, White Widow became a favourite of Amsterdam’s Coffee Shops in its heyday.
