Overview of White Rhino

White Rhino is an indica dominant hybrid which derives its name from the appearance of its bud. This strain is usually 80 percent indica, and 20 percent sativa. White Rhino also gets its name from its silver coat of trichomes, which rivals any strain you may have seen previously. These nugs are clearly robust, and provide a satisfying crack upon breaking.

White Rhino's resin output is legendary, so expect sticky fingers if breaking up by hand. This strain produces a slightly sweet aroma, with a significant fruity twist. The scent profile is dominated by a woody earthiness, which can give way to strong skunk in some varieties.

The strain is famous for its higher THC percentages and regularly reaches THC content well above 20 percent. On average, the strain ranges from about 18 to 24 percent THC. White Rhino also has CBD content up to 0.2 percent, and 0.01 CBN content. Prizes for White Rhino include the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1996 and second prize in the Champions Cup in 2005.

Potential Positive Effects of White Rhino

Despite White Rhino's predominately indica genetics, the stain's cerebral stone reflects its slight sativa genetics.

When the strain lands, it can uplift your mood and simultaneously soothes the body's aches.

Potential Medical Effects of White Rhino

Due to the strain's heavy indica properties and higher THC percentages, medical patients choose White Rhino to relieve physical and mental symptoms.

The Lineage of White Rhino
