Black Widow is a indica dominant strain that is known for the potent, trippy, and euphoric high it leaves its user with. The strain has won many awards including the High Times Number One strain in 1995. This strain was bred using White Widow to create a strain that is easy to grow but contains the same high THC content and high yields. When smoked the user is instantly hit with cerebral stimulation, some users report that this leads to a trippy psychedelic feeling with colours more vibrant and creativity increased. The user will also be left with a relaxing body high that can leave them stuck to the couch.
The buds are a dark green with purple and a very dark tint that can leave them almost looking black. They are also covered in orange hairs and frosty crystals that give the buds an appearance almost like sugary liquorice. The buds are fluffy and when broken open with your fingers they will leave a sticky residue behind that can have your fingers almost sticking together. The strain smells sweat and like citrus. When smoked it is very smooth and leaves its user with a fruity taste that lingers.
Medically this strain has been very effective for increasing a person’s appetite although it is also used for anxiety, stress, and relief from insomnia. Due to its body relaxation properties from its Indica cross it can also be used to help with chronic pain. This strain is recommended for evening use. Black Widows is best grown indoors or in a greenhouse as rainfall and high humidity can greatly affect the yields. The plant usually yields about 300 per plant and has reportedly reached a THC content of 19%. The flowering time is around 55-65 days.
