White Widow came into being in the Netherlands sometime in the early 1990s. It was first developed by Green House Seeds, though it is now produced by numerous growers throughout the world. Upon its initial release, White Widow became an instant hit in Amsterdam. Residents could find it in just about every coffee shop in the city.
Soon after, White Widow spread throughout Europe, eventually reaching California in the mid-1990s. The strain even won the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1995, thus cementing its popularity in North America. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, White Widow was used to create several other high-quality hybrids.
Today, White Widow is one of the most popular strains for both recreational and medical users. Its resin-heavy nugs are highly potent, but it still produces a great experience for both cannabis connoisseurs and first-time users. Additionally, White Widow is widely available throughout the world, giving millions of people easy access to an already popular strain.
