As the name suggests, the Snow White strain feels as if it came right out of a fairytale, and is very much adored by breeders and users alike.
It was born from a White Widow mother (winner of the 1995 Cannabis Cup) and an unknown indica father, which is said to be American. This indica dominant hybrid has a high THC count and low CBD and never fails to delight both the recreational and medical user.
Snow White, staying true to its name, is a pretty sight to behold. It grows to a maximum height of 36 inches (3 feet), and has a nice, closely packed and elegant bonsai spruce shape. Its leaves are oval, broad and dark green. The huge and dense buds are pleasantly soft. Even though they are dark green like the leaves, being thoroughly covered in an astounding number of resins makes the buds appear pale. Numerous dark brown and red hairs give the nugs an extra fluffy look, and the resins give the impression that the plant has recently been snowed upon, which makes it truly gorgeous.
This strain has an earthy, citrus laden aroma, which can also be found in its taste. The adventurous earthy flavor is complemented by a nutty and flowery sweetness, with a sweet lemon aftertaste. The smoke itself is very smooth and thick, and carry a citrusy flavor.
Snow White, like the fairytale itself, is both very fun and helpful. It creates a pleasant and soothing body buzz and provides a mellow head high. It induces relaxing feelings of elation, happiness, hunger and creativity, which makes it perfect for recreational use. The high lasts for about 2 hours, and leaves a friendly, tingling sensation.
In addition to aiding in recreational activities, Snow White does wonders in terms of medicinal benefits as well. It helps to sooth effects of chemotherapy, nausea, and anxiety, while simultaneously alleviating depression, stress, pain, lack of appetite, insomnia and fatigue.
First bred by Nirvana Seeds, this strain has quickly become a fan favorite. Flowering takes 8-10 weeks, but the early and abundant resin production starts just two weeks into flowering. Growers are recommended to use the Sea of Green hydro system for an exceptional yield – it commonly yields 450g per square meter in a Sea of Green under a 600W lamp. Although indoor cultivation is recommended, it can grow outside as well provided that there is the warmth and sunshine of a Mediterranean climate. Harvest is in October, and the high yield and delightful taste and effects has seen users rate this strain as ‘Exceptional and Outstanding’.
