        1. Growing white widow for first time. Just entered flower phase. Plants are strong, with many bud sites. I’m a little concerned that I have left to many bud sites. But I am very optimistic. ILGM seeds have always germinated quickly, and grown vigorously for me. I’m definitely going to order again.

        2. I started.growing indoors in 1979….LONG before White Widow was released for sale….I started with bag.seeds, and made my 1st ‘catalog’ order from SSSC in the early/mid 80ies…. THEN, in 1994, I read about this strain called White Widow….I.purchased some…I still have a picture (digital pic of a Polaroid), of my 1st keeper WW….It blew me away, along with EVERYONE I knew……It was WAY ahead of its time for strain quality….This is why it is STILL sought after…..I just added some WW back into my collection, and quickly is has become my current.favorite…….Although there are strains with higher THC, its the balance this strain has, and the perfect blend of cannabinoids…..Its not always about shear potency, but how you feel after a smoke session…..White Widow leaves you enjoying EVERY THING in your world that day, BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE, it still has the potency that some seek…..If there was a ‘Hall Of Fame’ for cannabis strains, White Widow would be the 1st inductee…..After being introduced in 1994, I have friends that still JUST WANT IT!!!!…..26 YRS RUNNING…Many strains come and go, but White Widow not just stands the test of time, BUT HAS.RULED IT…
