Strain Review: Sweet and Sour Widow

February 21, 2017


White Widow was known for its strength and flavor which is present in all offshoots of this strain, Sweet and Sour Widow being no exception!

This medicinal strain has a 1:1 ratio for THC & CBD perfect for medical users and the proportionate rating is 70% Indica and 30% Sativa making it an excellent hybrid for all growers.

Flowering Process

The flowering stage takes approximately 8 weeks to fruition so you will not have to wait very long to be smoking on these fine flowers. It grows quickly which is indicative of most indica dominant hybrids. Solid branches and moderately spaced internodes helps with channeling and pruning. The spacing allows the flowers to utilize much of the space and allows light to penetrate lower stems and the sponge-like structures help prevent mildew. This strain would do better than its predecessor, White Widow, in more humid environments.

By harvest, the flowers should be oozing with crystals and usually look bleached white turning amber towards the end. This is common in all strains descended from the White Widow genetics.

A good choice to make Oils or Wax

This strain has a high resin content and would make a good choice to make oils, shatter or wax. Edibles and the like would be proudly served with this as the super special ingredient. Again, this is a great physical high, not a head high. The effects are notably different than other strains. By far, this has to be one of the best, most balanced strains available today.

The fragrance has been reminiscent of chutney and onions or sour onions. It has also been called a sweet onion scent – sweet, citrusy, and earthy. Without a doubt it is complex yet subtle. Sweet and Sour Widow is aesthetically pleasing as well as to the palate.

Outdoor flowering has not been reported. Indoor flowering occurs within 55-60 days with yields up to 400 gr/m2. It reports only medium outdoor yield. This regular seed is good for production indoors or out.

THC/CBD levels

THC/CBD levels are listed as ranging from 6% to 8%. The CBD content can be slightly higher yet still maintains effectively a 1:1 ratio. While the THC content is relatively low, it still has an impressive high. The effects of this Indica dominant strain are notably relaxing with euphoric feelings.

Genetics : White Widow

The higher concentration of CBD, as opposed to other strains, produces a physical effect more than a mental effect. This makes it a great choice for those who need benefit yet still must maintain a relatively clear head. This brilliant balance of THC and CBD makes for a very appealing and relaxing high. The effects are noted to be mostly positive, including happiness. It is the perfect addition to a relaxing evening at home, or out on the go. Paranoia and dysphoria are not noted in this strain.
