White Widow Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Biocare

Grade: A-

Type: Sativa-dominant hybrid, Brazilian Sativa x South Indian hybrid

Price: $50/8th for non-members, $40 member


Appearance: (8.5/10)  This was a pretty great-looking White Widow, with its healthy green coloration, covering of brick red pistils, and heavy frosting of tall, pristine trichomes.  There were basically no flaws to be seen in the grow or post-harvest care — no signs of stress, no tiny seeds, and great structure.  The harvest may have been a bit on the early side just going by the lack of amber heads, but there were lots of cloudy heads.  Worth noting is that this was also a very sticky sample, leaving the fingers nicely tacky after breaking it up…

Aroma: (8.5/10)  We were a bit surprised by how fragrant and nice-smelling this White widow was, as it’s not really known for being particularly aromatic except while growing.  It produced a sharp and pungent citrus (think orange peels + lemon) scent after being ground up, while the pre-grind aroma was a little muskier, with hints of parmesan, pepper, and skunk.

Taste: (7.25/10)  Clean and flowery lemon with a piney tinge to it was the dominant flavor.  While not as pungent and enjoyable as the smell, it was still better than many White Widows.  Especially worth noting is the smoothness of the smoke overall, as this strain is not known for that train — it didn’t make us cough at all and was only slightly expansive.  The final ash told the tale, as it burned to a fluffy near-white, indicating a very good flush.

Effects: While there was some disagreement between the reviewers as to the overall potency of this strain (one had it higher than everyone else), it was unanimously agreed-upon that this is a great creativity-boosting strain.  We found ourselves mentally active but locked in a seated position, dead-eye focused on whatever it was that we were doing at the time, but especially creative pursuits.  The vibes overall were relaxed and very positive — it was smooth and seemed to flow with whatever was happening at the time — if it’s a social situation, we felt social, if it’s a working situation, we were focused, etc.  This was a very solid “stealth” med as well… eyes were clear and open the whole time.  A soft landing after about 2.5 hours kept the smoothness factor evident.  This would be recommended for all levels of patient, as it wasn’t overwhelming at any point and would be especially nice for people who don’t wish to cough when medicating.

Duration: Medium-Long, about 2.5 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Anti-anxiety, mood elevation, boost of energy to start, focus/creative motivation, some body/muscle relaxation properties.

Overall: This was the favorite White Widow ever for one of the staff, while the other had it squarely in their Top 3 or so for the strain.  Simply put, if you’re a fan of White strains or the Widow, Biocare’s version is about as good as you’ll find around town.  Simply superb grow-wise, it lacked flaws and was very appealing and impressive to the eye.  The unexpectedly citrusy and pungent smell and the above-average Widow taste combined with the strong mood elevating and creative properties of the strain made this one that our crew really liked.  It was pushing an ‘A’ rating… if it were a little more potent, it would surely make it there.

    I’m in the NOR-CAL Triangle, My outdoor grow has this tall massive strain just under 10ft. Max-c bloom seems to work very well. The buds are firming up and filling out tighter than expected. Still have aprox 4 weeks to harvest. If outdoor plant at least 6 to 8 ft apart.
