The Most Popular Marijuana Strain: White Widow

White widow indoor cannabis bud

White Widow White Widow is popular for a number of reasons. It is frequently used medically, recreationally, and for almost any reason in between. It is frequently on the menu at many Amsterdam coffee shops and has made top ten lists since its inception. It is technically an indica-dominant strain that evinces more sativa characteristics when you smoke it. White Widow marijuana seeds also tend to produce plants that covered in a “white” dusting of THC.

White Widow Smoking Effects As mentioned above, the indica-dominant distinction is really just a reflection of the genes. White Widow is more likely to produce very heady, cerebral highs that you would normally associate with a sativa-dominant plant. This is, of course, a result of the sheer amount of THC that the plant harbors. The high is quick and powerful. It’s also a very social strain of marijuana to smoke (hence the reason why it’s commonly featured in Dutch coffee shops). It’s a strain that naturally produces a lot of good vibes and it tends to last much longer than most comparable strains. When the cerebral high finally dies down, you’ll start to feel some of the indica-influenced, body buzzes. Want to grow some White Widow?

White Widow Plant Features Obviously, the major characteristic of this plant is that it comes with a great deal of THC. The “White” in “White Widow” is a reflection of just how covered the plant can get with psychoactive substance. White Widow marijuana seeds have historically been engineered to thrive in indoor environments (although outdoor growth is not out of the question). It is particularly useful for hydroponic growth. With White Widow, the leaves are long and green, but the plant itself is generally very short in stature. This, again, makes it ideal for indoor environments. White Widow flowers in about 7 to 9 weeks at which point you can expect yields of 21 ounces of bud per 10 square feet. Feminized seeds make this an attractive option for many growers. It’s also considered a great option for novices, especially those who want to try indoor growing.

White Widow Medicinal Uses Its widespread recreational use has brought White Widow to the forefront of medical research. Its effectiveness for several diseases has been studied extensively. Some ailments that White Widow can treat are cachexia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and even hepatitis C. White Widow continues to see study after study that appears to prove its effectiveness for a large amount of medical uses. The energetic highs are also often ideal for anxiety and depression.

  1. I am an old guy with acute insomnia chronic pain mostly use for sleeping white widow does not sound like the right thing have a good 1

    • Have you tried any Haze variety or Super Skunk? Great for insomnia- and WW is supposed to have the body-buzz , deep relaxation after the cerebral effects wear off. I will repost after my girls mature & let you know how I’m sleeping. I have anxiety & insomnia too. Take care.

  2. 3/4 of the time ‘white widow’ has more trichomes than ‘himalayan gold,’ the supposed dankest strain on earth.

  3. I want to order seeds but sight wont allow me to enter WWW White Widow coupon. Make sure I get free offer. Why are their no cust. comments or feedback. How do I know your company can be trusted to send strains I order with highest Quality.

  4. I got mine, except I didn’t get the free WWW seeds either, and I entered the code. it was descrete and fast. I highly recommend it. just don’t expect the freebees.

  5. Ist time grower of white widow strain, am in flowering phase at 6 weeks. Have 9 beautiful plants, indoor grow in tent with fluorescent lights. buds are great but lots of space between them…reddish hairs abound, looks like harvest may be in 1-2 weeks???? Thanks,
    Lady Red…. started as a lark but am now hooked…using fox farm nutrients and soil.

  6. Hi All, thanks for commenting!

    @Nick: everybody always gets the free seeds when they are promised! Your order however is from jan 17. The White widow Weeks ended on Dec 31st, over 2 weeks earlier. This was communicated in the newsletter.

    But, I do see now that you managed to enter the WWW code with your order. I will have the extra seeds shipped to you as a courtesy. We Love happy customers ;-)

    @Rgianneschi: I answered your questions in your last 16 emails. Thanks for ordering! Hope your will grow some mighty big buds with my seeds.

    @Judiewhite: nice work! Should be indeed ready in 2 or 3 weeks. Just watch the buds closely untill they look right.

    Keep on sharing, keep on growing :-)

  7. the guys at I LOVE TO GROW MARIJUANA are true to their word. I ordered my seeds on a Monday and got them the following Tuesday and I live in the U.S. with no problem . Not the case with one of the big seed banks I will not be ordering from them again but I will be ordering from I LOVE TO GROW MERIJUANA again guarantee

  8. I have lung cancer and I love White widow. I have never been able to buy it in BC Canada. It makes delicious butter and does not have a heavy next day dragged down feeling to it. I LOVE growing MJ!!!!

  9. I have been attempting to grow white widow but so far out of 8 seeds I have only had one sprout and is growing nicely so far. The seeds just don’t seem to want to germinate. ILGM has sent replacement seeds once and it was in those that one sprouted but the other four failed so 1 in eight. I expect Robert will send me some more to replace those not germinating. I ordered a different strain so I can get a comparison to see if it is the white widow or what. I have now tried everything I know without success and I have been growing since 1969. The problem I have now is that 1) I am running an expensive light for one plant 2) If and when I do get more growing they will be way out of sinc with the one currently growing and my grow room only has room for three plants so I’m not sure how I will work this out now once I get good seeds. Time delay is killing me for a viable crop.

    • garcher at fairpoint- Ever think that maybe, possibly it wasn’t the seeds?????I ordered my widow seeds from ILGM received them before I expected to.6 from 20 seeds that I germinated ( as our law only allows 3 flowering,3 vegetating per script) sprouted nicely and are well on their way to womanhood.

  10. I too have had germination problems with white widow. First 3 seeds in compost failed to germinate, next 3 in water , one ok and is planted on and is an inch tall now , second one started to germinate , but not going any further , taken it out of water now and is on wet tissue. 3rd one looks like it’s trying to split , but not going any further , is also on tissue now . All started together all at very different stages. ?

  11. Thank you so much , a told you I had trouble germinating all my outdoor white widow seeds, so you replaced them all, brilliant customer service :)

  12. This is my first time growing. After weeks of studying the Grow Bible, getting every thing set up I finally ordered my seeds! I was excited and scared at the same time! Well I just received my seeds! A day earlier then I expected! I now understand what is meant by stealth shipping No one would have ever known what was in the package! Very cleaver! I’ve researched many sites for month before I decided to start growing I’m so happy I found this site! It’s the only one I need! Thank you all for all the support!

  13. Robert, I have not received the seeds I ordered. It has been over 21 days! PLEASE REPLY, THANK YOU

  14. I receieved my order in a timely manner, all seeds intact.
    But, I have had no luck germinating.
    10 seeds of White Widow & Super Skunk, germinated only 2 out of 4 seeds – by week 2 they’d grown approx. 3 inches, but came to a halt by week 3 and started to turn yellow, then wither.
    I started over, somewhat a fortnight ago, 2 seeds of each strain planted in soil after sprouting – but none germinated.
    I have kept my soil mix, potting/flower soil with perlite 70-30%, moist and occassionally spraying them with room temperature water when the top soil seem to dry.
    External cool air supply and oscillating fan within the grow room, as well as suction for ventillation, 18/6 light – on average, 18-22 C.

    Please advice.

  15. i got my order quickly and i got my freebies but most of all i really loved how y’all guys shipped them to me. once i went through everything i found all of them hidden. so cool guys.

  16. just received package today as promised. 10+10 special all looks good.. now for the fun part. sometimes the leap of faith works!

  17. I was sent extra seeds that should have gone to the USA, when I reported this they was instantly shipped to the USA and I was told to keep them as a gift! You don’t get that service anyplace but I love growing.

  18. Robert’s Indoor White Widow seeds grow like weeds. Germination at 100%. All 5 plants topped twice at 5 weeks and are thriving off the Love.

  19. Just wanted to comment on seeds. I purchased 20 white widow seeds and got 19 plants that are thriving in an outdoor environment. All I did was put them in water and within 48 hours they were sprouting and were placed in good potting soil. One month later they are very bushy (FIM,d them one time) and about 14 to 16 inches tall. I am really looking forward to September and October. Thanks Robert, you sell a quality product and ship quickly.

  20. Hey guys ill be sending out my card tomorrow. Just wondering about how long it really takes to get your. order. I’m ready to get these girls going.

  21. grown her for several years in a greenhouse. She’s about 10 feet with one topping at youth 10-12 across. Lots of work. I’m up north somewhat so she’s doesn’t finish until Oct.; step ladders are set in anticipation. This year I went without but I think it was a mistake…I’m trying all new and or unfamiliar strains.

  22. Video showing no top, trim or anything being done but buds look so good. Everything I read they should be top, trim etc.. should I or shouldn’t I?

  23. I purchased Super Skunk and White Widow- got my beans in 5 days to US!! Awesome stealth & fun to find! The first set had beans that just didn’t germinate- I wrote and got very prompt response with suggestions on how to get WW to germ. They also cheerfully replaced my beans with new ones- super fast shipment again! Sometimes WW beans takes 4-5 days to open up guys, so don’t give up! I’m a newbie & I have a lady that is 8″ tall beauty SS and she just turned 1 month old. Got 2 more WW and 1 more SS that are looking gorgeous & healthy at just 2 weeks old! I found the paper towel method to be the best for my sprouts. Make certain it isn’t too cold where you are germinating- water in a paper towel gets COLD and can delay or even ruin the germination. Keep the paper towel moist , and under the lights to keep them warm. You won’t have to wait long :-) I am due to harvest my SS girl right at Christmas time- can’t wait! Thank you Robert! I won’t go anywhere else for my beans & I’ll be ordering again soon.


  25. Order came (to u.s) no prob. Order was complete (w freebies) I germinated in wet paper towels and they popped in 2 day. Ha.d a good size plant by end of 2,weeks . using t5,grow light. Germ. 4 and all 4,came up! Perrrfect!!

  26. Our first time experience with ordering seeds online could not have been better. We ordered the White Widow 5 seeds + 5 seeds free offer on Sunday, Jan 11 and weren’t really sure what to expect. They arrived to us in Texas 7 business days later on Jan 20th. We germinated 3 out of 3 and within 3 days all are about an inch and a half tall and growing fast. Thanks ILGM for the great experience. Can’t wait to buy more seeds!

  27. As a retired professional gardener for the 5th largest city in US, and a stealth grower since 1970, let me offer some tips on germinating. First, I usually place seeds on a damp paper towel. I have placed them in a gas oven with just the pilot light on for heat. Usually see sprouts within two to three days. Keep damp. Have even placed them under heated waterbed mattress! Give them at least 8-10 days before giving up. I have had problems myself with Blueberry. But, Robert and ILGM, sent me replacement beans, and I now have nice plants. Thanks ILGM
