White Widow by Phat Panda
White Widow by Phat Panda
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all found time to relax and blaze today. Sunday is always my favorite day to smoke, especially in the morning. Anyway, today we’re reviewing White Widow by Phat Panda. Phat Panda is an explosively popular grower in the area that I have yet to try. *Steve Irwin Impression* Let’s find out!
The legends of White Widow float around constantly, especially in prohibition states. I remember hearing about the elusive White Widow ever since I had picked up a pipe. Everyone brought their imitations to the table trying to convince the rest of the circle that it was indeed this legendary strain. Well, today we will know for certain. It may be because of the Friday 13th weekend, but I am now realizing that the label was misprinted and smudged concealing most of the results from its lab tests. I remember in the store seeing this too, but the budtender assured me the __3% was met by an extra 20. Anyway. trying to dissect this riddle of factory error, I decipher that this flower has a high CBD content of something like 10.9%. I would’ve swapped the faulty jar for a new one, but I was drawn to one chunky nug in particular that forced me to get it anyway. I know this flower is renowned for its medicinal use, so I wouldn’t be surprised to find that high of a presence of CBD. I hope this flower performs up to the legends I’ve heard!
Upon carefully breaking the seal between me and this vicious keeper, I am stormed with a flat earthy fist. The odor balances out to be a skunky pungency matched with a subtle and natural sweetness. Under that, there are hints of something I can only describe as damp, fresh-cut grass. The smell profile as a whole is extremely woodsy, light, and pleasant. I hope this enticing performance isn’t leading me straight to my stoney grave…
True to its nomenclature, the first thing I notice about White Widow is the spiderweb of hairs carefully cast upon it. The tightly woven net attempts to preserve the flower’s delicate verdant flesh. What is interesting about this plant is that it shimmers in the light but it is difficult locate many of the trichomes upon closer inspection. The resin glands themselves seem short, dense, and somewhat lost in the rich foliage. I’m not sure if those kind of formation changes are even possible within trichomes. Usually if your trichomes are short, it means they are damaged, but these seem naturally short. The orange hairs spike and crackle like lightning cast over the jungle canopy. The strain stands in healthy stout colas. These aren’t the densest nugs I’ve seen, but you can give these a solid pinch. I know this will grind up beautifully.
