White Russian Strain Description
White Russian strain produce strong, healthy, fast-growing plants that are fantastic in appearance and effect. Very popular also for outdoor growing in Spain, France, Italy and California. This variety is our most typically Indica strain.
The White Russian strain is a stable cross of our original AK-47 and the famous award-winning clone of White Widow from the 90s. She is of medium height, developes into consistent ‘not too leafy’ plants and produces dense, very resinous flower tops (crystals start to appear after about 5 weeks of flowering).
The plants smell quite strong during the growth and flowering period. In an independent seed comparison in the UK in which over 150 different seed strains were grown, the White Russian seeds came out as the strongest plant. Winner of the overall High Times Cannabis Cup in 1996 and of the Cup for Best Bio Grass in 1997.
The plants yield very powerful buds, coated with an abundance of resin. The effect is a very strong, long lasting High, which is more cerebral (=head-high) than it is a knockout (=body-stoned). Excellent medicinal plant for pain-relief. Last awards won by White Russian: 1st prize Indoor, El Punto Cup 2005, Málaga in Spain and 2nd prize Extracts, Highlife Cup 2013, Amsterdam.

White Russian (Serious Seeds) –
Perfect genetics for the real cannasseur
Text & Photos: Green Born Identity – G.B.I.
Amongst the white strains, the White Russian strain is one of the oldest and most sophisticated. We are talking here about a serious, professional piece of breeding work, not one of those crap seed varieties hastily cobbled together from inferior genetics and labled “white” for commercial reasons by some amateurs. No, it`s about the real mighty White Russian coming straight from one of Holland`s breeding halls of fame: Serious Seeds. Simon, the breeder, has done a fantastic job with White Russian, making it a popular figurehead of his seed bank right from the beginning. What a shooting start: White Russian strain took part in the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1996 for the first time, and it won both the overall Cannabis Cup and the Bio Cup for the coffeeshop “De Dampkring” at first go! In the following year, White Russian scored second place in the Hydro Cup, once again entered by De Dampkring. This company, known as one of the best quality coffeeshops in Amsterdam, contributed a lot to White Russian`s success story by selling it over years to thousands of tourists from all over the world.
Let us take a closer look at its genetics. White Russian strain is a stable mostly indica cross of Serious Seed`s AK-47 and the famous White Widow. These two giants of cannabis breeding history were merged into a new mega species that produces very consistent plants of medium height and dense, heavily resinous flower tops with very few leaves. White Russian is one of the strongest varieties available: For an independent seed comparison in the 90`s, 150 different strains were grown in a greenhouse. With 22% THC, White Russian turned out to be the most potent plant in this test cultivation. One could argue now, “okay, White Russian is award decorated and everything, but that`s almost a decade ago, what about its actual capacity nowadays?” A legitimate question that I decided to give an answer to. An up-to-date White Russian cultivation test should reveal its present quality as a seed strain.
An experienced grower called “Cloudz” conducted this project, using eight original White Russian seeds. All of them germinated very well and were grown at first under a “MaxGrow” (Germany) energy-saving lamp with 115 watts and full spectrum, what resulted in very compact growth with lush green leafs. Cloudz used six litre pots with soil mixture. 2.5 weeks after germination, the plants were moved to the actual grow room, where they received 600 watts of light from a high pressure sodium lamp, at a daily light cycle of 18 hours. What stroke the eye from the beginning on, was the remarkable uniformity of the plants. They actually looked like clones, there were almost no differences in height, width, colour and leaf structure. About four weeks after germination, Cloudz induced flowering by shortening the light cycle to 12 hours. Four plants turned out to be female, the male ones were discarded. During flowering, two types of bud formation were revealed by the plants: Both were very dense and resinous (though not as resin-crusted as White Widow), having quite few leaves. But the first type grew a little bit higher and had colas that were more long-drawn, while the colas of the shorter second type were more roundish. The single yield of the four plants, however, did not differ very much, with the respectively best plants of each type yielding almost exactly the same. They all looked awesome at the end of flowering, loaded with thick beautiful buds all over the plants, from the very bottom to the tip. These tight flower clusters felt rock hard and promised a most rewarding harvest. The only thing that didn`t go according to plan was the fact that all of the four plants exceeded the expected flowering time of 56-63 days by five days, finally reaching maturity after 68 days, when 70-80 % of the stigmas had withered and turned orange. Well, these additional five days of waiting did not really hurt, considering the superb cannasseur quality of the buds and the extra grams of weight that were produced in the last five days. The harvest amount ranged from 40 to 51 grams, quite sensational for a variety that was grown from seed, cultivated in soil and left in the vegetative state for a standard period of time. Apart from that, the flowers effused an extraordinary strong honey aroma that had adopted an also fruity scent after the drying process. Already in the vegetative state, the plants are developing a strong smell, so take good care about proper air control.
Cloudz was all on edge when it finally came to smoking the White Russian buds. And wow. the effect was even better than he had expected, heavily potent, hard-knocking and stony, but also somewhat cerebral at the same time. One or two bong hits, and he was done for a while. The high would last for hours, often causing fits of laughter. Cloudz estimated the THC content at not less than 20%, clearly noticing the extraordinary strength of White Russian, and I agreed with him. The aroma of the smoke was very fine, too, offering a smooth, full-bodied sweet taste. The grower was overwhelmed by the overall quality of his four White Russian ladies, never before he had experienced quality homogeneity on such a high level, fantastic in both appearance and potency. No doubt, White Russian today still has its firm place among the world`s best cannabis strains.
White Weed Seeds Explained
There is a lot of confusion and misinformation online about white weed seeds – from tales of New York White, an albino cannabis purportedly growing in New York sewers to people thinking that white/silvery seeds are a sign of immaturity. The truth is that white weed seeds do exist and are strains derived from White Widow, which was developed from seeds with dominant white pigmentation.
The pigment of white weed seeds
The white color in cannabis occurs in nature occasionally, as a consequence of a double recessive gene responsible for the absence of chlorophyll or because of a genetic mutation of the genes involved in pigmentation.
A double recessive gene causes absolutely white plants, although this is extremely rare; and in the second case, the bud or a part of the plant is affected by the mutation. Another possible explanation is the non-conformity between nuclear and chloroplast genomes.
Chlorophyll is the pigment responsible for giving color to plants. Its purpose, however, is more than aesthetic, as it is vital for the photosynthesis process. The chlorophyll of marijuana leaves is responsible for absorbing sunlight, triggering the chemical reaction that enables the plant to generate energy from carbon dioxide (CO₂) and the raw sap derived from water and mineral salts.
White weed seeds do not always occur because of a genetic trait, such as albinism. Instead, it can occur as a side effect of cross-breeding strains. Despite their color, white weeds seeds sold by seed banks are entirely healthy and develop in a normal way, offering bountiful harvests if grown in the right conditions. They are not true albino plants, and it is unlikely that albino plants would survive long enough to produce cannabis. Watch out if a strain of weed starts to turn white as this can be a sign of powdery mildew.
FAQ about White weed seeds
There is a lot of uncertainty about white cannabis seeds. We have therefore answered the most frequently asked questions below.
Are white weed seeds good?
The short answer is ‘yes’. Most cannabis seeds are dark brown, but some are a silvery white and grow into beautiful plants with frosted white buds and even leaves that are laced with white.
Do white cannabis seeds grow?
Many growers have heard the myth that white weed seeds are not as viable as black or brown seeds and are less likely to germinate. This is entirely untrue. At Weedseedsexpress, we have undertaken numerous germination tests and are completely confident in their quality. In fact, our test revealed that white seeds are more likely to germinate sooner than black seeds which has been confirmed by numerous of other seed banks
Are white weed seeds female?
All types of cannabis, including white strains, are dioecious or unisexual plants, which means that they are capable of producing male and female flowers in various individuals. However, both types of flowers can be found in hermaphrodite plants. You can reduce the risk of males by choosing feminized seeds, and most white strains sold at weedseedexpress.com are feminized seeds.
Apart from the white weed seeds we want to go a little deeper into white weed species.
White weed is delicious, and often less intense than other varieties, so it is good for indoor or stealth grows. White strains are normally Indica-dominant and grow thick, bushy colas and have a rapid flowering phase. Even though most white strains are directly descended from White Widow, this isn’t always true – some white varieties are classed as White because of their high resin content.
White strains are generally famous for offering smokers a consistently high-quality weed, inducing powerful feelings of relaxation and calm.
White Widow is widely regarded as the queen of the ‘White’ family. She has often been used to form other ‘white strains’ or share genetic material with other ‘white’ varieties. Other denominators are that white strains are covered in trichomes, have a high THC level resulting in a powerful high. Popular white strains include Snow White, White Widow and Amnesia Haze x White Widow.
White Widow flowers in 9-10 weeks when grown inside, and is ready for harvest in early October when cultivated outside. Try and leave harvest for as long as possible for better quality weed, with increased strength and a more complex flavor.
White Widow is classed as relatively easy to grow, and she is very resistant to mold. You can grow White Widow in northern climates as she tends to grow similarly to an Indica, despite her Sativa-dominant genetics. Use techniques, such as topping, to allow light to reach all areas of the plant to maximize yields. Allow White Widow sufficient flowering time, and you’ll reap rich rewards!

White Cannabis Strains
There is a multitude of white strains on the market today, but it’s not just their good looks that make the white strains popular, it’s the fact that they also tend to be very good resin producers with high THC levels.

White Marijuana Strains
But what is it that gives these strains their white look? In fact, the whiteness might more accurately be described as a glistening sheen of silver and it’s actually the crystallized resin that forms on both the leaves and buds of the plants that makes them look white in the right light.
Actually, ‘white’ is a bit of a tame description of these plants since many of them actually sparkle as if they were dusted with a coating of tiny diamonds, especially after you’ve smoked some of the harvest from them.
Most cannabis historians agree that the first white variety widely available to the general public was White Widow, created by legendary grower Scott Blakey (aka Shantibaba) in the early 1990s. The strain sprang to fame in 1995 when it won the Bio section of the High Times Cannabis Cup and has been a staple of Amsterdam’s coffee shops ever since.
Other outstanding white strains include Great White Shark and White Widow . It too has been recognised as a prize winner at the Cannabis Cup and it’s highly valued for its flavours of tropical fruit and fresh spice as well as its soaring, euphoric high and pronounced visual effects. Another Cannabis Cup prize winner is White Russian, a cross between the White Widow and AK 47 strains. It has a sweetish, skunky bouquet and an exceptionally high THC content of up to 22 percent.
