Black Widow is an award-winning hybrid strain (cultivar) honored with the High Times Cannabis Cup. This sativa-dominant strain is a cross between an unknown South American and South Indian sativa. One of the strongest strains yet fairly well-balanced, Black Widow’s indica properties make some users sleepy, while others will respond more to its energizing sativa effects.
Considered a daughter strain to White Widow, bred by Mr. Nice Seeds, Black Widow is easy to grow and known for producing high yields. Black Widow is a phenotype of the original White Widow, so it has the same genetics but expresses different physical characteristics. THC levels are high, sometimes leveling off at more than 20%. People use Black Widow for mental and physical benefits, notably relieving muscle spasms.
