      Black Widow Strain Information

      Depending on who grows it, Black Widow’s THC concentration can be as low as 18% or as high as 28%. This Cannabis Cup-winning strain also has 1% CBG, which can help reduce inflammation, soothe chronic pain, and boost mental focus.

      Unlike its namesake arachnid’s deadly effects, the Black Widow strain’s effects are remarkably uplifting and soothing. And although it leans sativa, this strain isn’t super energizing but rather mildly motivating. If you struggle with insomnia, Black Widow can even help you relax enough to drift off into peaceful slumber. Before you partake, stock your pantry — you’ll be raiding your kitchen after just a few tokes.
