White Widow is a legendary and world famous type of weed, first cultivated by Green House Seeds. A cross between a very resinous South Indian indica and an original landrace from Brazil, sativa dominant, made this iconic marijuana which has been one of the most popular marijuana varieties in the world for many decades.
Not only that, White Widow is of course also known for its very stable and powerful genetics, making it the basis of many new strains. But what do we actually know about the origin and rise of White Widow?
Unknown genetics White Widow
If you want to know what the exact ancestors of White Widow are, and so want to know which genetic line she is following, then you’re quickly at a dead end. So we do know that it is a Brazilian Sativa and an Indian Indica, but of course we would like to know more about her origin. When we rely on reasonably reliable sources we find out that Manga Rosa (pink mango), a Brazilian Sativa, is most likely one of White Widow’s parents.
This in combination with the South Indian “Keralan”, originating from years of refinement in Kerala, a province in India. The tropical beaches of Kerala are especially popular with tourists and very important for the country, but in the mountains of Kerala for years worked on the final White Widow. Bicycle species from this area are also characterized by Sativa influences and are also known for crossbreeds from which some powerful California Haze species were born.
The eventual combination and interbreeding of White Widow is due to one man, “Shantibaba”, one of the founders of Green House Seeds. Finally, “Shantibaba” founded the Mr. Nice Seedbank together with Neville Schoenmaker and Howard Marks. This also seems to have been the moment when “Shantibaba” continued with White Widow under the name Black Widow, as Arjan of Green House Seeds still worked with this White Widow. The different names were mainly meant to help marketing to distinguish Black Widow from White Widow.
