White Widow This strain is so heavily coated in white crystals that it looks almost white — no doubt where its name came from. It can be hard to pick out any other details under those thick white trichomes, but marijuana consumers will notice light green leaves with few pistils. Despite the heavily resinous nugs, these fluffy buds can be broken open without too much hassle.
Not just sugary in appearance, this strain’s aroma is strong and pungent with hints of wood and pine. This flower’s scent is often described as “dank” with plenty of earthy, moist soil tones. Consumers can expect a slight spicy, herbaceous scent from this one. Novice marijuana consumers be warned — this weed can cause some serious coughing.
