This indica dom hybrid from Serious Seeds is a cross between the potent AK47 and prize-winning White Widow. The auto variety is still pretty new, stability is still being improved and exact cannabinoid levels aren’t yet known. However, already it produces nice chunky colas, covered in frost and, like the feminized variety a happy, relaxed high.
Heritage & Genetics: Feminized White Russian is an award-winning beauty, once considered the most potent strain around with 22% THC. The autoflowering version mixes South American Sativa and South Indian Indica on the White Widow side of the family, and Mexican, Thai and South American Sativas, plus Afghan Indica on the AK47 side.
Flavor & Aroma: Sweet, and fruity, with some cheese thrown in; Auto White Russian #1 is a pungent little thing. Even in the vegetative stage, you will be able to smell and taste the terpene rich palette of the plant, which has earthy and skunky notes underneath.
Effect: Though the exact THC level is not yet known, it is definitely potent and creates quite a cerebral high for an Indica dom, though it has the potential to get couch-locky if you really up the dose. You should feel happy and relaxed, yet still be able to focus. Keep well hydrated though as she can have a tendency to make you thirsty or give you red eye.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Not as easy to grow well as other autoflowering seeds; she can be prone to mold (bud rot) and wilt if conditions are wet. The uniformity of the strain is coming through in the height though (around 70 – 90 cm), and most plants produce dense colas with a thick layer of frost. If you care well for her, the bud quality is still good. Perhaps one for the small indoor grower where simply chucking a seed in one large pot and tending well could yield a moderate amount.
