Wicked Widow is an old-school, award-winning classic cannabis strain that hardly needs an introduction. It is an absolute legend in the cannabis world and any self-respecting grower should give it a spot in their garden at least once. A great choice for those looking for an iconic plant, which is compact, high-yielding, with a great taste, smell, and high, not to mention an insane amount of resin production.
Wicked Widow is the well-known balanced hybrid strain that is the product of crossing Brazilian Landrace x South Asian Landrace. It has won countless awards, including: The C.A.B.A. Cup 5th Edition Best Weed, and The C.A.B.A Cup for Best High Indoor. It also offers up some serious THC content, around 20-23%.
This stunner is easy to grow and can be cultivated in most environments, making it a great choice for novice growers. It is a vigorous plant that generally is quite successful. Indoors, the flowering time is around 8 weeks and produces yields of around 500-550g/m2. Outdoors, it does very well due to its mold and pest-resistant properties; growers can expect yields of around 550-650g/plant that are ready to harvest in October.
Visually, the best-selling Wicked Widow strain is easily recognised by its compact yet bushy plants that reach a maximum height of approx 6 foot. It gets its name from the white-gray, crystal-laden buds that it develops, which are chunky and have a tapered look. You can also expect to see spring green leaves with a small scattering of pistils. The flavours are reminiscent of fruit and spice, where the aroma has pungent floral tones, with some hints of earthy pine.
One of the most potent stains on the market, the high can be pretty extreme. Medical marijuana patients have noted this strain as being particularly helpful with tackling issues such as fatigue, fibromyalgia, and depression. Those who are on the creative side of life typically enjoy this strain for the mind-stimulating effects that prove effective during creative endeavors, such as painting and composing music.
