White Widow - 20% THC
In 1994 the legendary White Widow was born by breeder Shantibaba. The father plant is a South Indian Indica hybrid Shantibaba used for White Widow originally came from Kovalam Beach but had been grown nearby in the mountains of Kerala. The Saitva mother comes from a pure Brazilian landrace. White Widow strain was first released by Shantibaba shortly after he founded the Green House Seed Company in 1994 in collaboration with his Dutch partner named Arjan.
When breeding Shantibaba worked alongside Neville Schoenmaker (the father of Dutch Seed Bank) as several new hybrids with superior genetics were developed. Some seeds they used dated back to the begining of the Seed Bank that Neville himself founded, a company now known as Sensi Seeds. During the time when the White Widow was created, Shantibaba and Neville concentrated on the breeding aspect and Arjan, not being a breeder himself, focused on the business. In 1996, both Nirvana and Dutch Passion seed companies purchased a single pack of White Widow seeds from Shantibaba. Later Shantibaba sold his half of the Green House Seed Company to Arjan in 1998 and left for Switzerland to form the Mr. Nice Seed Bank, taking the original White Widow parents with him.
