White is a color that symbolizes innocence and purity. It invokes happiness even without having the grandest things in life. Moreover, it promotes calmness and peace of mind. To that end, that is how the cannabis strain named The White brings to its users.
No one knows the genetic origin of The White, but there are plenty of theories. Due to its Kush-like qualities, some people think it might be a descendant of Purple Kush, Master Kush, and OG Kush. Although there is a suspicion that it might be a three-way cross, it was not the reason why it was called Triangle in the past.
Another story floating around is that The White came from a bad of seeds from a strain in Florida called Triangle. If that is true, then that makes it a descendant of a female Triangle and an unknown male plant.
Regardless of its real genetic lineage, there is one thing that is for sure. Due to the thick sugary white trichomes covering its bud, cannabis users now call it The White.

Odor and Flavors
It is easy to understand why cannabis connoisseurs think of the Kush lineage as soon as they catch a whiff of The White. It emits a pungent blend of pine and earth that is reminiscent of OG Kush with a sweet note. As much of its fragrance carries over to its taste, its smoke is not only easy on the throat but also on the lungs making the experience so much more pleasurable.
The abundant white crystals covering the buds tell users what they need to know. The White comes with an insane amount of THC with up to 28% according to some tests. Hence, whatever experience it induces, it is bound to be on the extreme side.

Growing The White
It appears that The White is not available in seed form. As such, the only way to cultivate it is to have a clipping. Nonetheless, it should not be a difficult plant to grow. It also likely grows more like a typical Indica plant.
It is safe to assume that The White will have no trouble thriving indoor. Growers may opt to use hydroponics to shorted the flowering time to around 8 or 9 weeks. Topping it early is highly recommended to keep it short and bushy. It goes without saying that growers will have to regularly trim its leaves. Not only does it allow more lighting to reach the otherwise hard to reach areas, but it also helps in ventilation. As such, there is less chance of having molds and mildews. Once ready for harvest, each square meter of this plant may yield up to 450 grams of buds.
