Dispensary: Blaze

Rating: 4.1

I sometimes hate giving strains a rating. Some buds are masterpieces, works of art, to be admired, worshiped, and celebrated. I am lucky that most of what I have tried recently would fall in the above-mentioned category. But this is not what I came up with—and I only got used to having extraordinary  weed when farms became licensed for medicinal purposes in Thailand. Previously to that, if weed got me nicely high and I could smoke it all day or night, I was happy with that.

To this end, Blaze’s White Widow has taken me back to those days. It is an affordable solid sativa strain, grown locally, which will not knock your socks off—but will make you happy to smoke all day long. The buds are sparse, deep green and familiar looking. These are not show case buds—but they nonetheless will entice the experienced user. The flavor is earthy and smooth, and that’s about it. It is decent and acceptable, definitely not offensive. A dry pull reveals a bit of a piney odor mixed with earthiness. 

The effects are nice. A heady high which leaves the user engaged, logical, energetic, and happy. The high peaks about 45 minutes after smoking and then begins to wane. Users may opt to continue smoking this strain or move on another. Back in the day I would have smoked this all day long and would have been fully content—and there is something to be said for a strain which provides flexibility to adjust the dosage throughout a given period.

Blaze’s White Widow is a perfect beginner strain. There are no adverse effects to this bud. It is a solid sativa which will leave the user happy. It is also on the weak side and will not scare off new users. Experienced users may also appreciate this particular strain for nostalgic purposes—it feels good and you can smoke it forever. It is a quality bud—a fine hamburger in a world of tomahawk steaks—and sometimes I just want a burger.
