This White Widow strain is made by Dubon (Highpark / Tillray brand), it’s a fairly strong hybrid strain with about 17.4% THC and 0.1% CBD, and it’s main Terpene is caryophyllene. I really enjoyed every aspect of this strain outside the smell of the bud itself, and I would highly recommend for anybody to try this. Below you will find a more detailed breakdown.
Packaging Details: This was packaged on 11/13/19, it was purchased and reviewed on 12/27/19, 44 days total after being packaged.
Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $25.00 CAD at the SQDC in Montreal, QC. ($7.14/G)
As soon as I took a nice nug out of the package and put it under bright LED lights I noticed how well trimmed it is (although we all expect that, trust me, there’s definitely a lack of effort with some really leafy ugly looking stains out there). You can see some crystals on the buds, not a huge amount. The weed itself is of a beautiful light green color with little purple spots, courtesy of the caryophyllene, mixed in with some dark orange hairs.The buds are really dense, so you might be surprised with the amount of weed you actually get when bidding up a little nug. What I didn’t like is the amount of small nugs that came in a 3.5 gram package as opposed to nice big nugs. Other than that, although I have seen some nicer looking weed than this, this White Widow looks very decent, and I think Dubon did a solid job with it.
In this entire White Widow strain review, this is pretty much the only aspect that I really didn’t like. As soon as I opened up the bottle and smelled inside as it was completely fresh, I instantly felt a whiff of something damp; kinda like leaving a wet towel in a bag for too long. There is a small hint of pine smell in there too, however it’s not enough to cover the weird, musky, earthy, kind of rainy, ripe smell of this bud. Don’t get it twisted though, this is some awesome weed as you will see below. Basically, do not get put off by the smell of this strain!
When I lit up my joint and took the first nice big puff, right away I noticed an earthy, woody kind of taste, it wasn’t unpleasant though. As I exhaled, I felt a very pleasant fresh, almost a little minty and fruity taste. Overall, I feel like the entire taste of this strain is very subtle. I think that it’s pretty smooth, the smoke doesn’t irritate the throat whatsoever. I enjoyed the “aftertaste” if you will, a little more, but overall im very satisfied with the way this strain tastes.
For me, this is definitely the most exciting part of this White Widow strain review. The high was completely awesome! It kicks in right away, and it’s a complete head high. I was full of energy, laughing like crazy, It gave me absolutely no feeling of lazyness or drowsiness, and outside of the constant giggling, I was actually pretty functional. The main high lasted about 45 min to 1 hour, and although i did feel a little buzzed after, there was no downer whatsoever. Before smoking this, I didn’t eat for a while and I was a little hungry, once I smoked, it cut my appetite completely. There was no feeling of munchies at all, but don’t get me wrong, when i did start to munch on my shawarma plate, I devoured it in about 5 minutes.
I would highly suggest this strain, whether you’re a complete beginner or an everyday smoker. I’d actually recommend you smoke this either with some friends, but if you’re by yourself, you should put on something really funny! Personally, I enjoyed the high a lot. I would even give it a better final score just because of the high, but the final score is the average, I don’t make the rules! (Wait, I do, …anyways, as you can see, I’m clearly still a little high). I would not recommend this strain for insomnia at all, but if you’re feeling down, or stressed, or even a little anxious, roll up some White Widow!
