In the late nineties, White Widow earned admiration the world over, for all the right reasons as it was something new, different, with more resin than any other strain at the time. From then on, we have been receiving the legacy from that particular strain. It is an indica-sativa hybrid with clear indica predominance, especially in the growing stage. Not very vigorous, it has many side branches making it easy to control indoors. The leaves are small, dark and shiny, whilst remaining quite wide. The smell of the stems rubbed between your fingers is deep, sweet & sour and very strong; it is important to use carbon filters indoors.
Production may be lower than for other strains but this is compensated by its resin coated flowers, offering very good strength and a mixed physical and mental medicinal effect, which is truly pleasurable. The flowering period lasts around 60 days indoors, which is necessary for maximum resin production; it is advisable to leave them in complete darkness for the last 5 days, to increase resin production as much as possible.
This technique also increases the concentration of essential oils and flavours, so it is recommended if you want a very tasty final product. Bear in mind that it can be eaSily affected by mould in humid climates and can be harvested till the 10th October, so it is advisable to harvest it quickly. In dry climates you can sit back and enjoy its wonderful aroma.
