The aroma of this white goodness is pungent at first, but then leaves you with a sweet aftertaste, due mostly to its rich terpene profile. Beta caryophyllene is the most prominent, which gives it a peppery smell.
Alpha pinene also contributes to provide an earthy and piney aroma. Limonene adds a bit of a citrus flavor as well. Myrcene, alpha humulene, and many other terpenes also contribute to White Widow’s rich profile. As a hybrid, this strain will leave you feeling happy, uplifted, and relaxed. This makes White Widow great for stress, depression, and pain.
White Widow is a parent of many other strains, including Blue Widow, Great White Shark, K2, Lady Widow, Misty, White Rhino, and White Russian. If you have come to love White Widow, then give some of these other strains out a try as well.
