White Widow, also called Arnhem’s Wonder and White Widow OG is a classic hybrid strain with prominent woody, earthy and pungent flavors and aromas with strong notes of black pepper and cedar. This robust flavor profile is due to White Widow’s primary terpene, the versatile Myrcene, and its secondary terpene, the spicy Caryophyllene.

With an average of 17% THC content, the White Widow strain has been a favorite of cannabis lovers since the 1990s when it was introduced in Amsterdam coffee shops. Legend has it that breeder Arjan Roskam of Green House Seeds in the Netherlands was the first to develop the White Widow strain with fellow cultivator Ingemar. A cross between South Indian Indica and South American, Roskams says White Widow’s original name was Arnhem’s Wonder before they decided to commercialize and sell its seeds.

White Widow’s name ever since is an ode to the deeply intricate white crystals that form on the buds of its plants, which are said to resemble spider webs. Since its name change, White Widow has been a staple on American dispensary shelves for many decades. The White Widow strain has won dozens of awards, the first and perhaps most notable of which being that of first place at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1995.

Thanks to its balanced hybrid nature, consumers report this strain leaves them feeling happy, euphoric, and uplifted, sparking creativity and conversation.
