For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some White Widow that’s made by Highpark (Tillray) under the Dubon brand. It’s a fairly strong hybrid strain that contained 17.4% THC and an insignificant amount of CBD. This was somewhat enjoyable; I would put this flower in the “average” category. Below is an in-depth breakdown of this popular cultivar that many stoners worldwide have enjoyed for quite a while.
Lineage: A cross between a Brazilian sativa landrace and a South Indian indica.
Terpene Profile: Caryophyllene, limonene, pinene
Packaging Details: This was packaged on 11/13/19, it was purchased and reviewed on 12/27/19, 44 days later.High
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 medium-sized 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 trichomes on the buds, not a huge amount. The weed itself is of a beautiful light green color with little purple spots, mixed in with some dark orange pistils. The buds are really dense, so you might be surprised with the amount of weed you actually get when bidding up a little nug. I didn’t like the number of small nugs that came in a 3.5 gram package, a lot of “popcorn.” Other than that, although I have seen some nicer looking weed than this, this White Widow looks decent.
This was definitely my least favorite aspect from this entire White Widow strain review. As soon as I opened up the container and smelled inside it, 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 scent in there, too; however, it’s not enough to cover this bud’s weird, musky, earthy, kind of rainy, ripe smell.
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 delightfully fresh, minty, and fruity taste. Overall, I feel like the entire taste of this strain is very subtle. It was a pretty smooth experience as the smoke didn’t irritate the throat whatsoever. I enjoyed the “aftertaste,” if you will, a little more, but overall I’m pretty satisfied with the way this strain tastes and smokes.
For me, this is definitely the most exciting part of this White Widow strain review. The high was awesome! It kicks in right away, and it’s a complete head high. I was full of energy, it gave me absolutely no feeling of laziness or drowsiness, and outside of the constant giggling, I was actually pretty functional. The main high lasted about 60 minutes, and although I did feel a little buzzed after, it wasn’t much of a downer. Before smoking this, I didn’t eat for a while, and I was a little hungry; once I smoked, it cut my appetite completely. The munchies seemed non-existent until I started to munch on my shawarma plate; I devoured it in about 5 minutes.
The score may be average, but I would still recommend this strain based on the effects alone, whether you’re a complete beginner or an everyday smoker. Personally, I enjoyed the high a lot. I would even give this cultivar a better final score because of the euphoriant feelings it emitted, 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, but if you’re feeling down, stressed, or even a little anxious, roll up some White Widow!
