White Widow is a Cannabis strain developed in The Netherlands and known for its abundance of white trichomes, high potency,[1] and resinous nature.[2] Induces happy, euphoric cerebral buzz that stimulates creativity, boosts socialization and increases energy levels. May cause paranoia, headaches, dry mouth and eyes. Has excellent analgesic properties. Relieves stress and nausea.[3]

The variety won the Cannabis Cup in 1995.[4][5][6] White Widow grown in Amsterdam is known to contain up to 20% of the active ingredient THC. White Widow buds are covered in trichomes, giving it an almost snowy look. As of late as 2011, it sells for approximately 8 Euros per gram in The Netherlands.[7] In San Jose and Colorado Springs, it is available from dispensaries for Medical Marijuana patients for $8 US per gram.[8] White Widow is a compact plant of medium height. The buds only develop a few amber-colored hairs, but the high crystalline resin production of this plant has become well known. White Widow is a strain that is relatively easy to grow to an experienced horticulturalist, especially in Europe because of its resistance to mold and colder climates. The original White Widow was created using a pure Sativa land race from Brazil[4] and was pollinated by an Indica-hybrid from southern India. The White widow has been used a lot to breed new strains of cannabis during the last decades. One of the most famous example is the White Rhino strain.[9]
