Black Widow is better known by its other name - White Widow. Upon its release in 1994 it won numerous admirers and the very next year was awarded the 1st. Prize in the High Times Cannabis Cup. Black Widow is the product of a cross between a Brazilian sativa with a hybrid from South India.
Black Widow is a small to medium-sized vigorous plant that can be grown indoors and outdoors. Indoor growers will be able to harvest between 350 - 450 gr/m2 in 10 weeks of flowering for the best resin production. Buds will be dense and white with resin crystals. The smell is fairy strong so it might be a good idea to use some air-filtering depending on neighbour issues. When cultivated outdoors and sown during June as much as 300 - 400 gr/plant will be produced with harvest in the northern hemisphere being around the end of September or early October. This harvest date has implications for those living in regions that experience a lot of rain at that time as harvest could be compromised. In such cases greenhouse cultivation could well provide the answer.
This is a good strain for amateur breeders to experiment with and Mr. Nice recommends using selected males for this purpose. The aroma and flavour are quite smooth and floral. The production of THC is in the high category and often reaches 20%. The effect is initially very physically hard-hitting and dramatic in its attack but this evolves into a more relaxed and cerebral feeling. Black Widow has therapeutic applications for pain relief and muscle spasms.
