White Widow is still a Dutch coffee-shop favourite despite it being introduced in the late 1990s. It was the first truly powerful "white strain" and is now fully stabilised. It is an indica-dominant strain with Brazilian and Indian heritage as well as high levels of THC and buds that shine with a white, frosty covering of resin crystals.
It is easy to grow in any substrate and with just about any method you care to employ. Dutch Passion's version is of the original strain and is the real deal. Indoor flowering time is about 8 weeks and it is also recommended to grow outdoors even in all but the far north of Europe. Yields are very good.
The scent and taste of White Widow is quite soft while, with 18.9% THC, the high is anything but. It is revered for its potent hit which starts off being cerebral but which evolves into a very relaxing high.

About Dutch Passion
"You don't buy that many seeds a year, it's one area of your life where compromise isn't necessary so choose a seed bank with a long tradition and proven record" - Dutch Passion
In the 1970’s, Dutch Passion’s founder, Henk van Dalen, began collecting and breeding with cannabis seeds which he found in the early Dutch cannabis imports arriving from all over the world. He realised that it was possible to grow your own cannabis and often it was far superior to the often poor-quality, heavily seeded, imported product.
Some of his best varieties were selectively crossed and bred and he soom realised that many people would prefer to grow their own cannabis from seed rather than buy it on the streets.
In 1987, the Dutch Passion Seed Company was formally established. 10 years later, they became the first seed bank to learn how to make feminized seeds, something that many people at the time said was impossible with cannabis. Ever since then, Dutch Passion have been busy trying to create the best cannabis seeds and trying to keep up with customer interest in other varieties of seeds such as autoflowering and CBD-rich etc.
Dutch Passion grow from their own gene bank of original genetics collected decades ago, These days, many newer seed banks simply regurgitate existing varieties/genetics and put a new name on them. Dutch Passion are both proud and fortunate to have their own legendary varieties from the 1980’s and plenty of old original seeds to use for future projects.
Crowned Best Seed bank at Spannabis 2014, Dutch Passion are well known for their sophistication and quality. The Dutch Passion breeders concern themselves with creating and preserving quality, and their varieties have won many prizes in cannabis cup competitions.
