The White is a hybrid strain with an origin no one knows for sure. Named for its thick blanket of trichomes, this strain is notably absent of a strong aroma. This can turn some consumers off, but those who try The White can attest to its potency. High levels of THC make this strain suitable for more experienced smokers, and the harsh smoke it produces can scare off beginners as well. Growers of The White should be prepared to perform a lot of work for not a lot of yield.
Overview of The White
The White is an indica dominant hybrid, containing only 15 percent sativa genetics in its makeup. This strain gets its name from its appearance rather than from any White Widow genes in the pool. Buds are absolutely smothered in a thick layer of trichomes, so dense you can sometimes barely see the medium shade of green underneath. The White's pistils are remarkably long and orange-brown.
Because most people take dankness as a measure of potency, many have skipped over The White due to its rather weak aroma. The scent that is there smells of sweet earth and pine, with slight notes of spiced wood. The smoke from The White is rich and expansive, eliciting coughs even from consumers with plenty of cannabis experience.
The White is a notoriously potent cannabis strain. Its THC content regularly tops 25 percent, and sometimes climbs up to 29 percent. Its CBD levels are negligible, topping out around 0.25 percent. Myrcene and caryophyllene are the most abundant terpenes in The White.
Positive Effects of The White
The White is a powerful strain that can creep up on anyone. Its hybrid effects kick in with a two-phase progression. The onset of a deep, relaxed euphoria takes hold slowly but steadily, as bodily effects prepare to switch on. Once consumers are swept into the middle of a relaxing mental current, limbs suddenly seem to numb and/or melt away.
Negative Effects of The White
The strong combination of mental and physical effects produced by The White can result in a state of moderate dissociation, which can be distressing to those unfamiliar with cannabis. Consuming too much of this strain can also lead to dizziness, in addition to the typical dry eyes and mouth. Paranoia is a danger due to the sheer potency of The White.
Lineage of The White
No one knows the genetic timeline behind The White, but most experts agree it emerged from somewhere in the state of Florida. Before earning the moniker The White, this strain was called Triangle. It may be a member of the Kush family, but is not a true OG.
Growing The White
Cultivating The White is a tricky proposition, in part because it's only available as a clone. The plants need more attention than most in terms of topping and trimming, and are finicky to grow outdoors. Even when a grow goes as well as possible, The White's yields are lower than average.
