Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, “Among the most famous strains worldwide is White Widow, a balanced hybrid first bred in the Netherlands by Green House Seeds. A cross between a Brazilian sativa landrace and a resin-heavy South Indian indica, White Widow has blessed every Dutch coffee shop menu since its birth in the 1990s. Its buds are white with crystal resin, warning you of the potent effects to come. A powerful burst of euphoria and energy breaks through immediately, stimulating both conversation and creativity. White Widow’s genetics have given rise to many other legends like White Russian, White Rhino, and Blue Widow.

It’s just a plant, right?

As a hedge fund manager said on TV leading a short on Aphria, “It’s only a plant.  It is going to be a commodity.”  Not when you have White Widow like this.  This is what outsiders don’t get.  How are you going to invest when you don’t know what you are investing in?  You don’t know the product, Sir.  This White Widow is absolute trash.  How can you go wrong with White Widow?  It just happened.

Our first White Widow was from Redecan and it was good.  Redecan is not better than what the grey market is delivering but it is almost on par.  This version from High Park is a muted version.  There is no define expression of happiness or euphoria.  It is a muted blend without any outstanding characteristics standing out.  The high is a bit faster on the uptake but it is equally fast on the downturn lasting about 45 minutes and an hour and a half to forty five minutes of high experience.  Off course, it was bone dry and odorless.

The best activity is early day because if this is the second or third lift for the daily user you will not lift much.  It is weak and the duration is short.  Any activity that requires a weak and short buzz than go crazy with this.

High Park Farm, based in Toronto, is part of the publicly traded LP, Canaca.  It is part of the Tilray family, which is surprising because Tilray is suppose to be a true west coast grower.  We believe something is lost in the translation from west coast to east coast.  This is the time to set the “Brand” and this is not a good start.

Disappointment is putting it mildly.  How can you go wrong with White Widow?  It takes talent.  White Widow is a go to strain and one of the outstanding quality is the euphoric intensity coupled with sparkling creativity lasting a solid two to three hours.  That is the benchmark and High Park missed this badly.

It is hard to believe with all the millions spent to grow cannabis and this is what is produced.  It is just a plant, right?
