Sweet, Woody



The Black Widow strain is one of the most popular strains on the market, which is well-recognized for its name, delivering immensely potent THC levels that vary between 18 and 20%. Being on the list of the strongest marijuana strains of all time, the Black Widow marijuana has Sativa-dominant genes (70% Sativa/Indica 30%). The strain resulted from crossing South American with South Indian strains. The weed provides an exceptional head euphoria with remarkably intense high, total happiness, complete relaxation, and a significant cause of hunger during smoking and after. The terpene profile is dominated by myrcene, and terpinolene, which results in a sweet woody taste like you are walking in the forest inhaling pine hints. Due to this extremely high THC level, the Blackwidow weed is suitable for veteran smokers.

myrcene and limonene are terpenes that prevail in this cannabis. They are responsible for gorgeous berry taste and mellow high that I like most of all.

Effects, Side Reactions & Uses

Being mainly Sativa, the Black Widow strain delivers an exceptional head high that hits hard as soon as you inhale, leaving you in a state of pure happiness, deep relaxation, and hunger. Black Widow is only advised for veteran smokers who have been toking for a while since its intensity can quickly overwhelm any new smoker and potentially trigger panic attacks. But for those medical patients who can tolerate this marijuana, Black Widow weed is good for easing symptoms of conditions including:

  • Depression
  • Physical pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Headaches
  • Everyday stress
  • Lack of appetite

Since this strain is extremely potent, beginners and sensitive stoners can experience side reactions that often include:

  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Dry eyes
  • Dizzy

Information for Growers

This strain produces large buds covered in orange hairs and a thin coating of small milky trichomes. The weed flowers within 63-70 days, allowing growers to pick the yield in 77 days. Indoor plants reach 30-60 inches, producing a yield of 0.5-1 ounce. Outdoor plants also reach 30-60 inches in height, but the yield is 10-15 ounces per plant. There are two types of seeds for this strain: Black Widow feminised seeds and Black Widow autoflower seeds.


The genetics of the Black widow are given by a South Indian Indica which is found in 60% of the strain and a Brazilian Sativa. The most impressive things about its appearance are the buds. They are enclosed and surrounded by a white fluff which makes them look almost frigid.
The Black Widow is well-known for its incredible powerful high that it gives to smokers. This strain leaves users feeling exhilarated. Some side effects are dry mouth and eyes alongside paranoia and sometimes even headaches.
The Black Widow is the sister of White Widow, and it is believed to be approximately 60% Indica and 40% Indica. It was created by the incredible Shantibaba while he was still working at Green House Seeds. When he left, he changed the name of his creation to distinguish his product from the one still sold by the Green House Seeds. Nowadays, Mr.Nice is the only one breeding it and has the original strains.

most vapers I know are afraid of this pot cause its too deceptive. The thing is that breeders offer a 24% thc strain which is very potent. This type is powerful to only 13-16%.

I struggle with bipolar and black widow is my run to strain as the doctors prescription doesn’t always do the job. This mmj offers me instant relief for pain and anxiety and it calms my nerves. I am able to better focus better. It is a heavy strain, so I wouldnt advice anyone to take it when they have work to do.

A quick but intense body and mind high. This is a munchies weed, I would recommend that you have food nearby or you will be throwing a tantrum. The body buzz is very short-lived but super strong and makes one slightly aroused. This is a good flower but definitely not a favorite.

I would say that this is an okay strain. It has a really good smell and has a pleasant high that made me euphoric and happy but the buzz was short-lived. It did not blow me away so I would say that this is a good strain for everyday high.
