Indica Dominant Hybrid – 85% Indica / 15% Sativa
THC: 20% – 28%
The White is an indica dominant hybrid (85% indica/15% sativa) strain with unknown genetics due to breeder secrecy. This bud gets its name not from a White Widow parentage, but from the appearance of its dewy white buds when they are ready to harvest. It comes from the three cannabis-producing capitals in Florida – Jacksonville, Miami, and Tampa. This dank bud boasts an insanely high THC level that varies wildly from 20-28% on average and has a delicious aroma of sweet pine with a taste of sweet earthy pine. The White buds have medium sized super dense Christmas tree shaped light minty green nugs with a sparse spattering of rich amber hairs. These nugs are completely frosty with sandy white crystal trichomes and sticky with sweet resin. Users describe The White high as a definite creeper. You won’t feel a thing, then you’ll suddenly be plunged into a relaxing warming body high with euphoric and giggly tendencies. This is followed by an insane case of the munchies and an easy drift into a deep and peaceful sleep. Due to these effects, The White is an ideal strain for treating stress, pain, and insomnia.
Medium sized and very dense, buds of The White are notable for a distinct lack of pungency. A substantial coating of trichomes gives leaves a silvery-white appearance. Buds have a bit of earthiness when ground and burned. Smoke is very smooth and tastes of dank pine when exhaled.
The White’s high arrives quickly in the form of bracing cerebral energy. Even with small doses, users describe a capacity for intense focus, making this a valuable strain for treatment of ADD or ADHD. Energizing and with almost no feelings of body stone, The White is a particularly thoughtful strain, useful for general contemplation or specific problem-solving tasks. Because of The White’s potency, novice users are advised to moderate initial intake so as to avoid the potential paranoia or anxiety.
The White is a clone-only strain, meaning that in order to achieve the characteristic plant structure and cerebral high, it can only be grown via clippings from a mature plant of the same variety. As an Indica, it can be grown indoors and will begin flowering within six to seven weeks. Growers should trim any undergrowth of broad fan leaves to allow buds on the lower part of the plant to flourish. Growers may also want to allow The White’s trademark trichomes to fully coat the flowers before harvesting.
A powerhouse Indica, The White is a prime choice for daytime or nighttime use in creative settings or mindsets. Because of its mild scent and taste, it can also be used in cannabis butter or other infusions to add psychoactivity without any pungent flavor.
Unknown, thought to be a phenotype/S1 bagseed from Triangle.
Straight from Krome via Lucid on icmag.com forums: “My favorite plant in the garden. It’s got a few names around my way, but the most common is simple “The White.” For me, this is the one that I judge all others by. This one has the high, flavor, potency, looks, everything. The only thing is that it yields like crap. I got it as a clone about 8 years ago from a friend and haven’t stopped growing her since. From what I’ve gathered it was from some seeds called “The Triangle.” Some friends grew it out and weren’t too thrilled and gave a cut to a friend. When he grew it it was the bomb! It’s been around in clone ever since.”
Berry White is a medium-sized cannabis plant with large bluish-colored buds. Depending on the plant, the buds can even turn purple. Berry White plants produce a dense coating of trichomes with bright orange pistils growing prominently around the leaves.
Lemon, pine, and hash, with some oddly sweet qualities creeping in at times — definitely “kushy” in nature, though not as sharp as some OGs, trending instead towards the musky side of things.
Not necessarily known for its taste (many breeders cross it for its trichome coverage with another, tastier strain), The White gives off a pine-heavy taste with hints of Kush spice. The smoke is thick and expansive, filling the chest and often causing coughing, especially on larger hits.
Very strong starting from the relatively quick onset, The White smacks the user in the face with a variety of cycling facial and cranial pressure changes as well as a warming sensation that creeps up behind the eyes. The body buzzes, and the entirety of the patient generally feels heavily medicated by 30 minutes in — though The White tends to keep the user sedentary, the mind remains fairly active and acute. A good strain for relaxing, it calms the body and mind without being overtly heavy or indica in nature until later in the duration, when the eye effects tend to lull the user to an early slumber. With strong mental and physical effects, The White has solid muscle-relaxing, pain relief, and anti-anxiety properties as well as stimulating appetite. The effect tends to get heavier as it goes along, so some patients will find sleep aid properties to be present as well.
The White is a pretty big feeder, though not a great yielder… it normally stretches 100-125% during flowering and responds well to early topping. Fairly aggressive pruning of lower branches is recommended to maximize production of top and “neckbone” bud sites, which will produce the best, most dense final product. It yields a little bit better than some finicky OG varietals, but is still definitely a connoisseur “headstash” type of plant as opposed to a production plant. Copious early resin production makes some people cut her early, but the last few weeks is when she really piles on the trichomes, so patience is a virtue.
Medical Benefits of the Berry White Strain
Berry White’s relaxing effects may make this strain a suitable option for alleviating stress and anxiety. Its ability to calm an overactive mind and instill deep relaxation may make it useful for insomnia. However, cannabis consumers with insomnia generally opt for more heavily sedating pure indica strains to address their condition.
Berry White’s uplifting, euphoric and mood-enhancing effects may also offer temporary relief for people with depression. Some users find the Berry White strain helpful for alleviating moderate pain levels, such as muscular aches and pains.
However, Berry White consumers rate its use as an antiemetic as only average and say that it only moderately increases appetite.
