Although the exact genetics are unknown, White Rhino is believed to be a cross between landrace strains from Afghanistan, Brazil, and South India. It first saw light after being bred by Green House Seeds and is related to another popular strain, White Widow. This strain is popular amongst the medical community and growers as a result of its high yield and soothing sedative effects. This Indica-dominant strain has come in second place in many competitions, but that doesn’t mean it is a second-rate strain.
The optimal conditions for White Rhino are a well-controlled environment with a steady temperature between 68-80 degrees Fahrenheit. While this strain grows well both indoors and outdoors, indoor growing provides the best yield. With a flowering time of 9 weeks, heavy feeding with nitrogen-rich nutrients will help the plant grow to its ideal form. Interestingly, hydroponics, a technique of growing plants using a nutrient water solution rather than soil, can lead to very rapid growth and attractive returns for those willing to invest more into their operation.

The aroma of White Rhino, is deliciously sweet, with sharp berry undertones that has just the right amount of bite.
