The strain has a quick onset and you have that buzzy feeling. Can be used for going out or just being lazy. You feel kinda sleepy after a while, but it is not bad. Worth getting! I also had serious onset munchies - I ate a bunch of stuff.

I tried it first at a party. White Widow gives fantastic high. I smoked half a blunt and was high for several hours afterwards. Who doesnt like White Widow? It is for all who tries to escape stress and stay uplifted. Gives a big dose of euphoria.
