White Elephant Strain

Like the real albino Elephant, this strain is quite rare. Usually, users looking for the White Elephant are more likely to find them on the West Coast more than anywhere else. Due to its limited availability, it has mostly remained under the radar in most parts of the world.

It is unclear who the original breeder of White Elephant was, but its known to be an offspring of White Widow and Purple Elephant. It is also an Indica-dominant strain and not to be confused with the Sativa-dominant cross between White Rhino and an unknown hybrid. Unfortunately, it is quite common in the marijuana industry to have strains having the same names.

Regardless, White Elephant boasts of a prominent lineage. The tantalizing White Widow, for example, has been around for three decades. Soon after its release, this strain became a staple in the infamous coffee shops in Amsterdam. A testament to its premium quality is longevity. Today, it remains one of the most famous classic strains of all time.

Purple Elephant, on the other hand, is a rare clone-only strain. A balanced hybrid, its effects are more centered on the cerebral before gradually settling into a relaxing body high.

Although both parent strains do have pronounced mental effects, the offspring lean towards the Indica side. In essence, one can think of its psychedelic traits as spending a relaxing day at the spa and pampered like royalty.

    White Elephant inherited an overpowering grape aroma from its parent strain Purple Elephant. It also comes with hints of sweet floral berry and earthy pine. At times, it can be a little pungent. On the whole, they are quite pleasing to the senses.

    Adverse Reaction

    Having dry eyes and a dry mouth are common reactions to smoking marijuana, whether it is White Elephant or others. Often, though, users ignore these symptoms because they are mild. However, some people may also experience dizziness to a lesser degree. But, this all depends on the amount of ganja used.
