History of White Widow

This legendary strain was developed in the Netherlands in the late 1980's by a breeder known as "Ingemar" who crossed a sativa landrace from Brazil mother with the name of Manga Rosa and a South Indian Keralan hybrid. Arjen, the founder of Greenhouse Seeds who are still selling the original White Widow strain bought this strain from Ingemar in 1985. There is a lot of speculation going around on the internet about who "invented" White Widow. Truth is that it Ingemar created this strain long before the alleged inventor "Shanti Baba" arrived in Holland under the name of "Arnhem's Wonder". Arnhem's Wonder won the first High Life cup in 1989. Arnhem's Wonder was then rebranded to "White Widow" and sold to Greenhouse Seeds who won the Cannabis Cup for the first time in 1995 under that name. After that this popular strain won many other rewards.
