White Moonshine is an indica-dominant hybrid crossed from flavorful Blue Moonshine and a strain of lesser known origins simply called The White. Although its effects are predominantly physical, this isn’t a paralyzing knockout indica. THC averages 15-19%.
Buds of White Moonshine are bright green and, true to their “White” heritage, absolutely coated in sticky trichomes. A grinder is recommended for breaking up these dense, resinous buds. The smell of lemon and spicy hash comes forward first. Breaking the nugs open gives off more of an earthy musk. White Moonshine has a gentle, smooth smoke on the inhale, with a lingering sweetness on the exhale.
The high first takes hold in the user’s head, with a pleasant numbing effect that spreads through the rest of the body. Users report a deep relaxation that does not tend towards couchlock. Although parent strain The White can impart an intensely cerebral and introspective high, White Moonshine’s mental acuity is nicely tempered by the tranquil indica body buzz. A good option for nighttime or for a lazy afternoon, White Moonshine can have a mildly creative vibe that is well-balanced with its more sedative effects. Although THC or CBD content is not high enough to provide significant medical benefits, White Moonshine can be helpful in the treatment of anxiety, as well as general aches and pains.
Like most indica-dominant varieties, White Moonshine with its short, bushy plants can be conveniently grown indoors. Plants typically flower in about 10 weeks. In order to foster the growth of this strain’s trademark thick trichome coating, a low-humidity environment is recommended during the flowering period.
White Moonshine has become popular for crossbreeding, used by Las Vegas-based Sin City Seeds in the production of several other resinous varieties. In all, this is a tasty, well-balanced strain that encourages relaxation without being incapacitating.
