Origin Of Black Widow Marijuana Strain
The Black Widow marijuana strain is acclaimed to have been developed by Shantibaba. He was once a co-owner of Green House Seeds (GHS). When he left the company to establish Mr. Nice Seeds, the strain was known as White Widow.
Shantibaba took the strain with him and created a new cannabis strain using the original Brazilian sativa and the South Indian indica-dominant hybrid. But, because GHS was still selling their seeds using the name White Widow, Shantibaba renamed his strain Black Widow. He wanted to distinguish his unique cannabis strain from his competitors’.
Since Mr. Nice Seeds has the proprietary genetic properties of Black Widow, the strain is now believed by many breeders as the White Widow strain in seed form. To this end, both avid users and marijuana growers love this cannabis strain.
Effects Of Black Widow Strain
Marijuana dispensaries and long-term users recommend that Black Widow be used in the evenings. This is because it makes most users feel relaxed and sleepy. It provides a mild body high effect that can make you desire more of your bed or couch.
The effects of Black Widow are largely euphoric. It is possible to induce slight headaches and dizziness in new or occasional users. Some other users might also experience dry mouth and eyes. However, the effects are not always harmful, as they may also feel some form of mental creativity.
Because this strain contains up to 28% THC, its euphoria can be quite powerful, especially for new smokers. With a THC concentration that high, it’s no surprise that happiness is the result.
The first-time smoker should be aware that Black Widow could produce paranoia in users. There is the initial feeling of feeling high and light-headed, but it could swivel around to turn to unpleasant feelings in first- time users. So, if you’re a newbie, use this strain with caution.
