Flavor and Fragrance of CBD White Widow
White Widow is renowned for a great many things - but flavor sadly doesn’t tend to be one of them.
Largely, the original classic is famed as an old-school strain with a hash-like, incense aroma absent any hint of the kind of fruity zest many of the modern marijuana age’s exciting hybrids offer. While this is terrific for some, among many modern audiences, it just doesn’t quite cut it. White Widow was more about the cultivation ease and fast-acting cerebral influence than flavorful or indulgent fragrances.
With this swift autoflowering pot progeny, however, rumour has it that the Widow has had somewhat of an upgrade in the sensory department.
Expecting notes of fresh citric fruits, floral whiffs and complementary flavors which dazzle the tastebuds has never been connected with White Widow before, and while CBD White Widow may not yet be the zestiest you ever did try, she certainly comes up aces in the flavor and fragrance side of things compared with her iconic parent.
Don’t come knocking at the door of CBD White Widow Auto and expect a high anything like her famous Dutch parent strain.
This CBD hybrid has had her THC tempered down to a remarkably low 5% content. The 1:2 THC to CBD ratio of these buds is sought after fairly exclusively by those looking for less in the way of any psychoactive influence.
In fact, the high CBD content in this Widow offspring largely offsets any noticeable effect from the THC, working instead on gently relaxing the body and mind without taking things into any significant cerebral areas.

Just as you’d expect from any auto, these pot plants are known for developing a sturdy build and racing from seed to harvest as quick as biologically possible. With CBD White Widow, you’re looking somewhere in the region of 10 to 11 weeks before your crop is ready to harvest and deliver between 400 and 450 grams per meter squared indoors, or around 60 to 170 grams per plant for outdoor crops.
Though you can reap great rewards indoors or out with this CBD-heavy hybrid and the plants tend to reach no more than 1.5 meters in height, CBD White Widow is known for doing the bulk of her growing sideways. This means, for those hoping to maximize the output of their plants come harvest time, you had best make sure to give these ladies all the width you can.
Like most autoflowering strains, you can also have seriously satisfying results by using the Sea of Green technique, and should keep an eye on the large fan leaves that develop - trimming these will help ensure the lower areas of the plant grow just as well as the top.
