Classic F1 White Widow
Classic F1 White Widow
White Widow is a multiple prize winner and became one of the great classics.
White Widow is mainly known for her potent all-white buds that make the high so incredibly potent. In terms of fragrance and flavor profile, White Widow can best be described as spicy and piney, with many different underlying notes enhancing the aroma. In some phenotypes, this will be a citrus undertone, with sour, fresh and fruity characteristics. In others, it may move more towards the diesel end of the spectrum, making her smell a bit more gaseous or metallic. All in all, this unique and complex aroma falls particularly more under the heading of real old-school weed!
White Widow is a true legend. Not only for the high quality of the buds, but also for the ease of growth. It is a strong hybrid that will grow vigorously during both veg and flowering. It is a plant that is very suitable for beginners, it does not matter which growing method and cultivation system you want to use. Her fast flowering time also means that as a grower you don't have to wait long before you can harvest. With an average flowering time of about 8 weeks, this strain falls into the category of fast flowering plants. Due to her average stretch during flowering she can do well in both a SOG and a SCROG setup.
Dutch Passion’s White Widow had been perfected many years before most of today's seed companies were even established. True White Widow aficionados will happily pay a little more to get true 1980 F1 White Widow genetics, with the authentic aroma, flavor and unmistakable high. Our original White Widow is a cross between Brazilian and Indian strains and has a powerful and pungent scent. We believe that our version is the most authentic on the market. Our customers love Dutch Passion’s original White Widow and report great growing results indoors and outdoors (in warm climates) and in greenhouses.
White Widow is a medium sized hybrid cannabis variety with very compact buds. The buds typically produce fewer orange coloured pistils than most cannabis strains. It is the excellent resin production that has made this strain so famous, it can be seen even on the larger fan leaves. White Widow owes its name to this extremely high resin production with its exceptionally thick white layer of trichomes.
White Widow is not a difficult plant to grow. With the right environment and care, she will grow into a beautiful plant that will richly reward you with a good harvest. She is suitable for any type of grow, but thrives best in a controlled indoor grow. The branches are strong enough to bend / snap or "scrog". White Widow has a medium internode distance and her buds have a very favourable flower-to-leaf ratio. Large buds are only surrounded by small leaves that are easy and quick to remove, which significantly increases the speed of cutting/trimming.
White Widow has average stretch for a hybrid cannabis plant. She continues to grow in the flowering phase for around 2.5 to 3 weeks. Plants are known for their vigorous growth and beautiful full buds packed with glittering trichomes. Trichome production starts quite early in flowering and continues at a rapid pace. It's no coincidence that this strain is still considered one of the strongest and most potent cannabis strains. Due to its high potency, it is appreciated by both medical and recreational users all over the world.
The genetics used for White Widow guarantee the following properties:
White Widow is the ideal strain for enthusiasts and connoisseurs of old school genetics and incredibly potent, sticky bud.
The extremely white buds of our White Widow warn of the powerful effects that will follow. The effects are known for being strong and long-lasting. Many smokers report experiencing an initial euphoric high that is very energetic, ideal for creative tasks. As the high progresses and you consume more, it transforms into a more narcotic and relaxing effect. The high has a strong energetic peak in the beginning but is followed by a soothing feeling. Ideal for falling asleep after watching a long movie, for example.
White Widow flowers for an average of 8-9 weeks, making it one of the faster flowering Indica dominant hybrid cannabis plants. In good conditions it will be harvest-ready within 8 weeks.
The plants will stretch quite a bit after switching the clock to 12/12. During the flowering phase, the leaves become a bit slimmer and the branches become a little longer and thicker.
Within about 3 weeks the growth/stretch rate will slow down considerably and will come to a halt. At the same time as the flower hairs develop, resin production starts on the smallest leaves ("sugar leaves”). About a month later the buds will be completely covered in a THC-rich, sticky blanket of trichomes.
White Widow is a fast bloomer with a good yield. This means that you can achieve a high yield within a short period of time. This XL cannabis strain is not the biggest in size, but it does get full, long buds that can get incredibly compact. On average, yields of around 400-500 g/m2 are possible. And this within just 8 weeks!
She is known for her compact, full buds with a good 'calyx-to-leaf' ratio. This means that her buds will only have small leaves in them. Manicuring these buds is incredibly easy and quick. This is a plant that grows well in both a SOG and a SCROG or in the natural way, nothing is too crazy for her.
Outdoors she will thrive in drier climates, but her fast flowering time makes her suitable for growing in temperate climates as well. Be careful towards the end of the flowering phase, because high humidity increases the risk of bud rot and mold.
Overall, White Widow is an uncomplicated strain that requires little or no advice. This strain practically grows by itself! What we can recommend to promote her potency and stickiness is to put her completely in the dark during the last 3 days of the flowering phase (0 hours light / 24 hours dark). During this time the plant will stress a bit and produce even more trichomes.
Another tip for the more professional grower is to reduce the light cycle during the last 2 weeks of flowering from 12 hours of light per day to 10 hours of light per day (10 hours light / 14 hours dark). This ensures more resin and trichomes. It also means that the second internode bloom (not visible in all phenotypes) is stopped. This will result in fewer new foxtails.
White Widow has a reputation for being one of the strongest strains ever created. Our producers have worked hard to optimise this potent, vigorous variety and then stabilise the best traits. The result is this legendary and highly sought-after variety of excellent quality with thick buds, white from the crystals. Dutch Passion's White Widow is very consistent and easy to grow in any medium. The quality and consistency is particularly pronounced in this feminized version, which has become a bestseller and a standard that other seed companies strive to match.
