Overview of White Russian

This award-winning strain quickly produces lush and fertile plants as enticing in appearance as it is in potency. White Russian has won numerous awards since its entry into the cannabis scene in the 1990s, including the 2013 High Life Cup in Amsterdam and the best overall prize in the 1996 High Times Cannabis Cup. Though an indica-dominant strain, White Russian pleasantly surprises the smoker with an uplifting cerebral stone. White Russian typically tests around 20% THC content; newer versions of the strain have reached 25% THC.

Potential Positive Effects of White Russian

The strain's relatively active high begins with a sense of disorientation and tightness around your temples. White Russian can inspire the smoker to feel a sense of happiness that instantly uplift their mood and emotional balance. The high, surprisingly, lacks the heavy body stone indicative of most indica genetics. As users increase their consumption of White Russian, they feel more tired, typical of indica varieties. Due to the strain's relatively mild indica stone, White Russian can be a pleasing introductory indica for novice smokers. Like most other indica strains, White Russian can induce couch lock.

Potential Medical Benefits of White Russian

White Russian packs a pleasantly surprising cerebral stone beloved by patients coping with stress, depression, and anxiety. Patients dealing with anxiety and depression favor White Russian's ability to relieve stress and uplift the mood. The longevity of the high is also a favorite among chronic pain patients and insomniacs.

Potential Negative Effects of White Russian

Negative symptoms are few, but red eyes and dry mouth are the most common adverse effects. Like most other strains, White Widow can cause dizziness, paranoia, and headaches when over consumed.

The Lineage of White Russian

White Russian is a combination of Serious Seeds' AK-47 strain, and a celebrated clone of White Widow bred in the 1990s. White Widow embraced the indica-dominant properties of its predecessors and was considered one of the most potent strains in the global industry.

Growing White Russian

White Russian plants grow to a medium height and grow seductively dense and resin-coated flower. As the plants' flower, they cultivate a skunky and robust aroma. Serious Seeds notes that the strain can grow well both indoors and outdoors. Seedlings vegetate for four to five weeks outdoors and are ready to harvest in mid-to-late October. When grown indoors, the strain will flower between 56 to 63 days and yield up to 500 grams per square meter.

Where to Find White Russian

White Russian is not the easiest strain to find. White Russian is abundant in states like California, Oregon, and Colorado.
