To this day, the origins of this strain are disputed, although it's generally accepted that the mother of White Widow was the Brazilian “Manga Rosa” which was used for spiritual practices.

This South Indian Keralan hybrid father was stabilized and improved over many years, and the best cut got its way into the DNA of the White Widow.

If you’re looking for a fast-flowering plant, White Widow will finish flowering after 8-9 weeks, so for all you impatient consciousness explorers, this strain is for you. Remember that if you want to highlight either the indica or sativa traits, harvest the plants at the right time. If you want a more relax and couch-locky feeling, make sure to harvest when many trichomes start turning amber. For sativa traits, harvest when the trichomes just turned cloudy, it will give a more uplifting high.
For indoor operations, White Widow will deliver 450-500g/m² in yields and 60-100cm in height, which is a short plant that delivers significant yields. Outdoors you can expect 550-600g/plant and 150-190cm tall plants.
