Top 5 - Best White Weed Strains
Without further ado, here are five of our all-time bestwhite strains of weed.
1. White Widow
White Widow is a firm favorite of many coffee shops in Holland. Very fashionable in the 90s, she quickly made a name and a brand image thanks to the white layer of trichomes characteristic of this strain. Her atypical taste cemented her reputation, becoming an essential Amsterdam weed, undoubtedly one of the most requested.
Quite chemical and reminiscent of nuances of lemon, lime mixed with incense flavors gives weight to this alliance of tastes. 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.
Plants grown from White Widow feminized seeds will make a happy medium for beginners who have a little experience with growing big Indicas. She can be a bit finicky when it comes to fertilizers, but will forgive small mistakes. Otherwise, she stretches moderately and flowers rather quickly with abundant yields. She does well in SOG, giving impressive harvests. Outdoors, her Sativa blood allows her to thrive in countries such as the south of France with mild, Mediterranean temperatures.
In short, she's a great compromise between Indica and Sativa that will make every cannabis use and grower just a little happier.
2. White Russian
White Russian is 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 her vegetative stage.
She 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, you may still risk a couch-lock due to the apparent feeling of physical relaxation she provides.
White Russian feminized seeds produce beautiful plants that are small in stature, yet with a sturdy and compact structure. The internodal distances are quite short, and her leaves look like giant hands with spread fingers, due to their wideness.
The White Russian's production of buds is abundant, sporting large, compact nugs which are also completely covered with resin. During cultivation, but especially during the flowering stage, the grower will be advised to use a filter against the overpowering scent given off by the plant, which can easily betray production to neighbors or passers-by.
The great advantage of White Russian is that she allows novice growers as well as more experienced growers to get a generous, high-quality harvest without too much effort, and within a reasonably short time as well. On the other hand, White Russian, with her abundant resin production, is one of the best cannabis hybrids when it comes to therapeutic properties.
3. Critical White
Critical White is a vigorous, robust, easy to grow, fast flowering, high yielding Sativa/Indica hybrid plant.
Critical White feminized seeds will grow into beautiful, medium-sized yet compact cannabis plants. She grows like a bushy bush, and the production of large, dense buds is concentrated not only on her central stem but also on all secondary branches. She produces a large amount of resin full of THC with a deliciously sweet scent.
The weed has a delightful and sweet taste and aroma, with hints of lemon and candy. The balanced effect of Sativa and Indica will appeal to all cannabis smokers.
4. Snow White
Snow White feminized seeds are increasingly popular as they are 80% Indica and closely related to "White Widow", which guarantees a high yield and beautiful thick buds. Snow White is a real stunner, typical Indica property, and an improved variety of the "white strain".
She is not tall, develops large dark green leaves and has a shorter flowering period. Cannabis enthusiasts love this very potent little damsel, ready to harvest in about eight weeks and a yield that will satisfy the dreams of every grower.
The full, chunky buds covered with a layer of snow-white resin are a promising sight. Like any true Indica, she will numb you with her narcotic high that will persist for some time.
Snow White tastes sweet and freshly fruity, a bit like cotton candy. And we believe that you and this strain will live happily ever after.
5. White Widow x Northern Lights
Northern Lights is famous in the coffee shops of Amsterdam, and White Widow is just as iconic with her generous white coating of resin crystals. Both varieties have been loved by aficionados for many years now, so the blend of these two types of weed was always going to be a hit.
With genetics from India, South America, Thailand, and Afghanistan, you could say that this is a world-class hybrid in every sense of the word. The notable vigor combined ensure an easy-to-grow plant with plenty of THC.
The hybrid has many other names, such as Great White Shark. Our blend of Northern Lights and White Widow offers a superb high and cannabis which can be relied on to deliver excellent results. They are resilient plants which allow you to do all kinds of methods, such as ScrOG, without any problems. And while she closes this list, many growers have White Widow x Northern Lights feminized seeds as their number one favorite strain to grow.
