White Widow x Big Bud has become one of the best-selling of all cannabis seed strains. This is in no small way due to its very impressive yields and super-heavy effect. Originally a limited edition strain, it proved so popular that it became a staple of the Female Seeds' range.
White Widow x Big Bud is what is known as a di-hybrid; this means that it was developed from a group of F1 plants from which was made 2 selections. One group was selected for its large bud development and heavy yields and the other for its White Widow qualities, i.e. its fantastic high. These two groups were stabilised separately for 6 - 7 generations before being crossed again. The result is a short/medium-sized plant that grows to a height of 60 - 80 cm. and which flowers in a short 7 weeks.
The harvest from this strain is simply staggering, especially so in view of the fact that the plants are comparatively short. The flavour and smell has clear signs of its Big Bud ancestry being very Skunk-like. The effect is pure White Widow, a very fast-hitting, heavy stone which evolves into something more cerebral after a while.

About Female Seeds
Ferry, the creator and head cultivator at Female Seeds started making regular seeds during his studies in the early 90’s, purely as a source of extra income. However, the high demand for new strains from Amsterdam combined with the excellence of the products that Ferry was producing, his business truly exploded and became a major player in the regular cannabis seed business by the end of the 1990’s.
Speaking of this unexpected expansion, Ferry said, “I never thought an extra student income would lead to such a serious business. Ultimately my dream was to save money for a small self-sufficient eco farm.”
At the end of the 21st century, the first feminised seeds were introduced to the market. They were very popular, but also very unreliable. Ferry’s experience in massive regular seed production combined with his engineering background motivated him to investigate how to produce 100% reliable female seeds.
Because of this, Ferry switched his focus from regular to feminised seeds, and by 2003, he introduced Female Seeds to the market. It became a huge success immediately because of his decision to price his seeds below market average while still maintaining the quality of his products. In fact, Female Seeds became so popular in such a short space of time, the company had difficulties to meet the demand.
Around this time, many new feminised seedbanks started to enter the market. However, a good reputation, reliable and unique products, value for money and friendly customer service helped Female Seeds to differentiate ourselves from the mass.
Ferry spoke about the current success of his company saying, “Female Seeds has now entered a state of transition, from a company to a movement to invest in sustainable independent growing systems, like aquaponics and LED systems. Furthermore all profits will be invested into cooperative systems, ecological projects and agriculture. Helping people to have a happy sustainable lifestyle is our overriding goal."
