Over the years, literally thousands of marijuana strains have been discovered, hybridized, and smoked. It’s quite possible that no strain carries the same legendary status as White Widow. The origin of this strain remains a mystery to this day.
At Royal Queen Seeds, our skilled breeders created our own version of this classic using White Widow S1 genetics. Our variety features a perfect genetic balance of 50% indica and 50% sativa. She sits right in the middle of the spectrum and offers the best of both worlds.
Although the exact origin of the strain is shrouded in mystery, we can guarantee the original White Widow is a Dutch classic, grown for the first time in the Netherlands.
The original was created when a sativa landrace from Brazil was pollinated by an indica hybrid from southern India. According to legend, WW was the result of years of selecting and breeding in the mountains of Kerala to produce resin-rich marijuana plants.
Since the original release back in the ‘90s, seeds have been dispersed around the globe, which has led to numerous variants on the original strain. Now, most reputable seedbanks will feature a version of WW, with RQS being no exception.
White Widow Provides Good Yields And Manageable Growth
Our grows to about 1m tall indoors, reaching up to 2m outside. It needs lots of light but can be grown in colder climates such as France, the UK, and the Netherlands. Grown inside, it can yield 450–500g/m² under a 600W light. Outdoors, growers can harvest between 550–600g/plant. Although this cultivar will perform better in warm climates, it still provides excellent results in northern European climates.
White Widow finishes flowering after 8-10 weeks, requiring little maintenance. This is the perfect plant for first-time growers. Such characteristics also make this plant a great option for SOG and ScrOG operations.
She’ll produce a large central cola when left untrained. Although pretty and impressive, you’ll get better results with a bit of training. Top each plant during the early vegetative phase and use LST and defoliation to produce an abundance of bud sites and an open and aerated canopy.
These effects make White Widow an ideal smoke during busy days and creative projects. Her stimulating high sparks enough enthusiasm and motivation to keep you engaged in the creative process for much longer than usual.
Her dense buds produce high levels of the terpenes myrcene, pinene, and caryophyllene. These aromatic molecules converge to create a flavor profile defined by notes of spice, earthiness, and pepper. White Widow goes down particularly well in savory edibles, where her pungency comes to the fore.
