Black Widow

Reported Genotype

Strain Description

Black Widow is an Indica-leaning hybrid of Brazilian and south Indian landraces that was originally cultivated by breeder Scott Blakey -- aka Shantibaba -- under the name White Widow. When Blakey and breeder Howard Marks -- aka Mr. Nice -- left Green House Seed Company in the late 1990s, they changed the name to Black Widow to distinguish their plant from White Widow strains sold by other seed banks. Today -- as noted by its Dutch seed bank, Mr. Nice Seeds -- Black Widow is an easy-to-grow plant that offers decent yields of frosty, resinous buds in a 56-70 day flowering period. It was a 1st Place winner at the 1995 High Times Cannabis Cup. The seed bank recommends indoor, hydroponic, or greenhouse growing. Growers should expect vigorous development of resin frost and a strong aroma during the final weeks of flowering. Both regular and feminized Black Widow seeds are available from Mr. Nice.
