White Widow, aka “White Widow”, or simply WW, is perhaps the most famous and sought-after cannabis strain today. Many companies are constantly working to improve it by releasing fully feminized seeds of the strain, crossing it with other legendary strains, and creating powerful autoflowering seeds. We can safely say that White Widow is not just marijuana, but a cultural phenomenon in the world of cannabis and one of the best breeding achievements.
According to the most popular version, the “White Widow” was born in 1994 and a year later the strain won first prize at the High Times Cannabis Cup. At the present time, the details of creating a hybrid are overgrown with many legends and myths that cause a lot of controversy among growers and representatives of seed banks.
First of all, you need to understand the following, the beginning of the 90s, this is the time when seed banks appeared like mushrooms after a rain, and at the head of each of them were people who were familiar with each other and who were part of one big “get-together”. One fact is beyond doubt – the first White Widow marijuana was created within the walls of Green House Seeds …
It all started with a trip to India by one of the founders of Green House Seeds, Shantibaba, where he met a local grower who was growing a very potent and resinous Indica hybrid. The seeds of this hybrid went to Europe, where they were later crossed with pure South American Sativa. Interestingly, the exact details of the breeding of cannabis White Widow and the names of the cultivar’s parents have never been released to the general public.
Subsequently, Shantibaba sold his stake in GHS to Aryan and created his own seed bank Mr Nice Seeds … where he took the original WW recipe. In addition, the White Widow seeds were sold to Nirvana seeds and Dutch Passion (on the personal initiative of Shantibaba), who set about their own production of a hybrid with such an unusual and complex fate … Among those who took part in the hybridization of the first Widow was one named Ingemar, who claims to be personally the creator of the legendary variety. According to his version, the strain was obtained quite by accident back in 1987 and was then called Arnhem’s Wonder (winner of the High Life cup in 1989 and 1992). Aryan bought the rights to Arnhem’s Wonder for GHS and renamed the strain White Widow … In this case, all the beautiful stories about travel to India are just speculation and a beautiful legend. However, Ingemar also did not stay in the ranks of GHS and took an active part in the creation of another sufficiently well-known bank – DeSjamaan seeds.
In the end, the truth remains unknown, and White Widow cannabis seeds are present in the catalogs of every famous seed bank. Every year, more and more versions of the creation of the strain appear, and seed producers are trying to appropriate this achievement for themselves, and with it the title of distributors of the original version of the “White Widow”, of course! After all, this is a great PR move and the best advertising possible! For whom the honorary title of the creator of the legendary hybrid should be secured is up to you, and we will tell you about the most famous representatives of this family and tell you about their fundamental differences:
