White Widow

White Widow is a strain of cannabis allegedly developed by Dutch seed breeder known as "Shantibaba"[1](other sources name "Ingemar")[2] and its known for its abundance of white trichomes and high potency.[3] White Widow has been reported to leave the user with a relaxed feeling. It, like most indica marijuana varieties, is a good appetite enhancer. However, being a cross between sativa and indica (60% Indica, 40% Sativa) it also has the sativa quality of mood enhancement - bringing on an interest in activities one may not normally enjoy. The variety won the Cannabis Cup in 1995.[4][5]

White Widow grown in Amsterdam is known to contain up to 20% of the active ingredient THC. White Widow buds are covered in crystals, giving it an almost snowy look. As of late as 2011, it sells for approximately 8 Euros per gram in The Netherlands.[6] In Seattle and Tacoma, it is available from dispensaries for Medical Marijuana patients for a donation of $12 US per gram.

White Widow is a strain that is fairly easy to grow, and especially in Europe because of its resistance to mold and colder climates.
