Snow White Strain Review
Snow White gets its name from the thick frost of trichomes surrounding it. While it has the barely noticeable but sweet undertones of apples, enthusiasts can easily determine it from the witch’s basket of poisoned fruit for its refreshing scent of pine. Moreover, it will not leave users unconscious in the middle of the forest. Instead, a swig of its luxurious smoke alters reality into a fairy tale with its mind-to-body euphoria.
The way it relaxes the body to the bone and brightens up the mood can be attributed to Northern Lights, a beacon of positivity that gives users a break from the daily stressors of life. Meanwhile, White Widow adds an interesting dimension to one’s thought process.
The Indica-leaning herb is actually a part of a group of cannabis nicknamed ‘The Whites.’ Each member has over-the-top resin production that make its yields look like an albino pack and a remarkable potency. Snow White, for example, produces an overwhelmingly powerful THC of up to 24%. Though intimidating, it is actually a sweet bud with significant therapeutic value.

Odor and Flavors
As soon as the buds are exposed, its musky aroma immerses the senses in what smells like a garden bed after a drizzle. It is refreshing, just like pine, as it greets the senses with its pungent scent. Drawn in, it bursts in the palate with a subtle spicy sweetness accentuated by mixed herbs, fresh cones, and wet soil.
Snow White likes to take its time before inducing its effects. For this reason, the best way to use it is to start slow and steady. Otherwise, it can be quite unforgiving as it locks user to the couch. Taken in moderation, however, its psychedelic high is like receiving a kiss from one’s true love.
It wakes users from a deep slumber as it invigorates worn-out souls. There is a subtle yet profound rush of energy that surges throughout the body as the cerebral euphoria persists. It leaves one feeling giggly too as, like a montage, happy memories clear away negativity. The clarity often results in a higher sense of focus that, along with a heightened motivation, keeps one concentrated for longer periods of time or at least until a task is finished.
Although it has great wake-and-bake qualities, the mental boost is better suited as a post-work treat. After all, the initial invigorating buzz mellows down into a creeping Indica buzz. In all likelihood, users are eased into a lazy state of contentedness as a heavy-limbed sensation envelops the body in a relaxing embrace.
To avoid being overwhelmed by the strain’s potency, it is important to start with a low dosage and build it up only when necessary. Otherwise, users will experience symptoms of greening out which are characterized by dizziness, anxiety, and paranoia. Most of the time, however, the side effects are limited to the typical dryness in the eyes and the mouth.

In inducing its happy high, for example, it reduces high levels of stress and gives users a clean emotional slate. The sense of calmness, as well as uplifted mood, manages symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health issues.

The relaxing sensation prevents the muscles from contracting. For this reason, it is a great for muscle spasms.
Beyond sparking some introspection, the invigorating reefer also helps calm down anxieties and forget about stress for the time being. Free of mental and physical distractions, users feel revitalized from exhaustion or fatigue as the euphoric effects persist.
Growing White Widow
Snow White into a rather striking flower with a dusting of trichomes that are as white as snow. Thick coats of resin drip from its calyxes, signaling its potency. Even from afar, it announces its presence with its soft glimmering sparkles and strong fragrance.
To bring out the full profile of its terpenes, it is best to use soil as it has been proven to improve flavors. Meanwhile, hydroponics usually produces cleaner buds that are free of chemicals or pesticides. Regardless, it is highly recommended that growers utilize the Sea of Green setup as it encourages a vigorous yield and better trichome production.
A factor to consider in growing Snow White is humidity. As an Indica-dominant strain, it is highly compact with dense foliage that can sometimes harbor moisture that later. Without proper ventilation, it will later develop into mold or mildew and stunt the plant’s growth by causing the buds to rot. Thinning it through pruning, as well as installing a proper ventilation system, will help aerate it. At the same time, trimming it will also improve light and nutrient disbution.
Indoors, the plant produces a generous yield of 400 to 500 grams of fresh buds per square meter. Outdoors, the plant likes bask under the warm, sunny weather of the Mediterranean. With ample access to sunlight, growers will be rewarded with at least 500 grams of buds per plant by early to the middle of October.
