BIG CHIEF WHITE WIDOW
BIG CHIEF SATIVA
Cutting off buds open gives a more hashy, incense-like aroma. The smooth smoke tastes additionally coarse – customers accustomed to fruity or flavorful. Crossbreeds may be baffled by White Widow’s overall need for flavor.
White Widow is a cross of two landrace strains, Brazilian and south Indian, from Green House Seed Company in Amsterdam. Green House breeder Arjan Roskam reports having developed White Widow in the early ’90s with fellow Netherlands breeder Ingemar.
According to Arjan, the strain’s original name was Arnhem’s Wonder before he and Ingemar commercialized it in seed form and changed the name to White Widow. The winner of first place Bio at High Times Cannabis Cup in 1995, White Widow delivers a strong peppery cedar flavor and a complex, long-lasting high that starts with a relaxing haze and gives way to an explosive buzz, as reported by Green House.
Green House has tested White Widow at 90.4% THC. The seed bank has also developed autoflowering and high-CBD autoflowering versions of the strain by hybridizing White Widow with Ruderalis and high-CBD strains, respectively. Green House Seed Co. carries all three versions of White Widow in feminized seed form.
Buds of White Widow are heavy and somewhat cone-formed and fixed. The bud construction of the blooms is more sativa than indica, with a free and warm surface that can be isolated somewhat adequately disregarding its industriousness. The leaves are spring green with barely any recognizable pistils.
