The world-renowned White Widow is perhaps one of the most potent strains that ever sprouted from the Dutch soil. This equal-split hybrid sports densely-packed buds covered in thick layers of frosty trichomes, which later became its ticket to stardom. Apart from that, it is highly sought-after by recreational users for its powerful yet well-balanced high.
Seeing its potential in providing immense therapeutic relief, expert breeders from Homegrown Cannabis Co. developed a CBD-enriched variety of this prized strain. With a CBD to THC ratio of 10:1, it delivers potent medicinal benefits along with pleasant, calming effects. This bolstered CBD level then makes it suitable for patients seeking afternoon or nighttime medication with potent healing and painkilling properties, as well as little to no psychoactive effects.
When it comes to cultivation, CBD White Widow never fails to impress with its robust and easy-to-grow nature. It also produces plentiful yields of fat nugs clad in white, sparkly crystals without demanding much attention. Available at Homegrown Cannabis Co. as feminized seeds, CBD White Widow guarantees a male-free garden - thereby making gender identification the least of growers' concerns.
Growing CBD White Widow from Feminized Seeds
CBD White Widow, typical of modern hybrids, sports a compact frame with thick, sturdy branches and short internodal spacing. The density of the foliage makes thinning necessary. Otherwise, the pent-up moisture in the crevices could promote the growth of molds and disease-causing pathogens.
The versatility of this strain makes it convenient to cultivate in the house. It can, for example, tolerate colder climates as long as the temperature does not drop below 10°C. Such an easy-to-grow nature makes it suitable for beginners and in cold regions like North America and Europe.
When grown outdoors, CBD White Widow thrives best in warm, Mediterranean climates. Expose it to plenty of sunshine, and each plant can yield a whopping 600 grams of premium buds by early or mid-October.
Mimicking the natural environment is possible indoors by setting the temperature to 21 to 26ºC. Meanwhile, humidity levels must hover around 40 to 50% during the flowering period for optimal results. Combine the Screen of Green (ScrOG) technique with either organic soil or hydroponics setup and anticipate up to 500 grams of trichome-laden buds per square meter after 7 to 8 weeks of flowering.
Fragrance and Flavor
Unsurprisingly, this CBD-enriched version does not fall far from the original White Widow when it comes to the terpene profile. It delights the sense of olfaction with a sweet and sour fragrance alluding to zesty citrus and sweet, floral undertones. Flavor-wise, it tastes like lemons and flowers, but with the pleasant surprise of a spicy aftertaste.
The original White Widow is a great bud for social use as it induces chattiness. CBD White Widow, on the other hand, is best for relaxing while staying productive. Its barely-perceptible cerebral buzz promotes mental clarity, as well as increased focus and awareness. Under its influence, worries and brain fogs clear out, allowing the mind to function like a well-oiled machine.
On the physical side, the strain is sharing a mellow and calming experience. The body will feel comfortable and tranquil without feeling the need to curl up into a ball on the couch. Consumers can undoubtedly stay active, but the arduous bustle is the least appealing. This strain helps consumers in cognitive-oriented tasks and in de-stressing after a long, tiring day. It also promotes a good night's sleep.
