Blue Widow is a hybrid Indica created from the Blueberry and White Widow strains – a formidable heritage since both of those are previous winners of the High Times Cannabis Cup.
This powerful weed produces a well-defined, clear-headed stone with visual effects. The smell and flavor are both highly fragrant, combining fruit and berry tones with a hint of forest glades. This weed alleviates headaches and other moderate pain, as well as nausea.
Outdoors, this plant can grow as tall as three metres, and it produces robust side stems with sturdy, short leaves and large, sticky buds with a heavy resin coating. As the plant matures, leaves and buds take on deepening shades of blue and purple, and the buds also display orange hairs. THC content is in the medium range for a skunk-type weed, 12 to 16 percent.
Indoors, the Blue Widow strain is a good candidate for the SCROG growing method, using either hydro or soil mediums. It’s a slow starter, but once the buds start appearing they increase in size rapidly. Flowering time is seven to eight weeks and yields are around 500 grams per square metre.
It’s possible to grow Blue Widow outdoors if you live somewhere that gets plenty of warm sunshine through the summer. This strain does less well outdoors in the cooler climate of Northern Europe.
To conclude this Blue Widow review, connoisseurs grow this weed for its attractively fruity flavor and its stimulating, cerebral high. If you’ve got some indoor growing space and a degree of green-fingered competence, you’ll get good yields from Blue Widow.
