UK White Widow is a strain that was grown in Vancouver Island and is a cross of UK Cheese and White Widow. Expect this sativa-dominant hybrid strain to smell like cheese on steroids!
UK Cheese is a popular sativa-dominant strain known for its potent, balanced effects and signature musty cheese smell. The flavor is also unique with notes of berries and spicy cheese (one that may just have to be tasted rather than described). This strain is thought to be a specific phenotype (same genetics, different end result) of Skunk #1 that was originally cultivated in the early 1990s by a UK collective group known as “Exodus.” (As a result, this strain is also known as Exodus Cheese.)
UK Cheese became popular for its energetic, euphoric head effects combined with its impressive pain relief potential. It quickly spread beyond the borders of its British home. Most users experience alert, sativa effects that allow for mental relaxation without sedation, but it may hasten bedtime for some. Effects tend to be felt in the head first, generally around the eyes, then spread throughout the entire body, producing muscle relaxation and even some tingly numbness.

Out of the countless marijuana strains that have been discovered, smoked and bred over the years, one of the most legendary and famous strains is the White Widow, a Dutch classic grown in the Netherlands and first released in the early 1990’s.
The original White Widow was created using a pure Sativa land race from Brazil and was pollinated by an Indica hybrid from southern India. It was believed, according to legend, that this hybrid was born from years of carefully selecting and breeding in the mountains of Kerala to produce high resin content marijuana plants.
The White Widow plant can grow to almost 1m tall and the buds are covered in crystals giving an almost sugared appearance. This strain has a very strong aroma. The smell of White Widow stems is deep, sweet & sour when rubbed between your fingers. You can expect a fresh and clean pine taste with a subtle, lingering and very pleasant citrus flavor after each hit. This strain is especially wonderful for anxiety users due to its instant calming effects. It can help with migraines, PMS symptoms as well as other chronic pain.
