Best white weed strains – Top 5
Without further ado, here are five of our all-time best white weed strains.
This variety is a firm favourite of many coffee shops in Holland. Very fashionable in the 90s, it quickly made a name and a brand image thanks to the white layer of trichomes characteristic of this strain. Its atypical taste cemented its reputation, and since then it is an essential Amsterdam weed, undoubtedly one of the most requested.
Its taste is quite chemical and reminiscent of nuances of lemon, lime mixed with incense flavours which gives weight to this alliance. The smoke is slightly thick but refined by the lightness of the Sativa that offers a good compromise, a smoke that you can smell in your throat, but that does not sting.
The effect is pretty cool; a little high that gives you a smile followed by a stone that comes quietly but very present. You quickly find yourself in a dreamlike world, thanks to the euphoric high that keeps your feet on the ground, while your head is in the clouds.
For cultivation on its own, this is a plant that will make a happy medium for beginners who have made their own way with big Indicas. She is a bit finicky when it comes to fertilizers but will forgive the smallest mistakes. Otherwise, it stretches moderately and flowers rather quickly with abundant yields. She does well in SOG where she will give impressive harvests. Outdoors, her Sativa blood allows her to thrive in countries such as the south of France with mild temperatures.
In short, it’s a great compromise between Indica and Sativa that will disappoint very few smokers and growers.

White Russian comes from a cross of two legendary strains, White Widow and AK-47. An Indica-dominant hybrid, White Russian won the ‘Best Overall Ranking’ of the Cannabis Cup in 1996 and was for a time considered the most potent strain in the world with 22% THC. Showing remarkable consistency for an F1 hybrid, White Russian is an extremely fragrant plant, which smells of sweet fruit, lemon and skunk, even in its vegetative cycle.
It tastes of citrus with spicy nuances; the different fruity notes blend with the strong taste of hash. White Russian’s high is quite cerebral (especially for an Indica), but her potent high is still very balanced. However, it may lead to a risk of couch-lock due to the apparent feeling of physical relaxation it provides.
White Russian is highly recommended for medicinal use. It is mainly for stimulating appetite. It is also recommended when sleep is lacking because it will help fall asleep through the relaxation effect. We will also use the White Russian in the case of muscle pain or joints. The feeling of relaxation one feels after consuming White Russian is an indication of its usefulness in depression or anxiety.
White Russian cannabis seeds produce beautiful plants that are small in stature, but with a sturdy and compact structure. The internodal distances are quite short, and its leaves look like giant hands with spread fingers, because they are very wide.
The White Russian recalls in the position of its branches a fir tree with its apples. Indeed its production is abundant, and its buds are large and very compact and completely covered with resin. During cultivation, but especially during the flowering season, the grower will be advised to use a filter against the overpowering scent given off by the plant which can easily betray production to neighbours or passers-by.
According to several studies in the UK and US, White Russian is considered the most potent plant among many other hybrid cannabis strains and far ahead of them.
The great advantage of White Russian is that it allows novice growers as well as more experienced growers to get a generous, high-quality harvest without having to exert inordinate efforts and all in a reasonably short time. On the other hand, White Russian, with her abundant resin production, is one of the best cannabis hybrids when it comes to therapeutic properties.
