Canaca White Widow

Canaca White Widow, dried-flower review.

Producer:  High Park Company

Brand:  Canaca

Labeled as:  18.6% of THC and 0% of CBD

Species/details:  Hybrid

Format:  Dried cannabis flower, 3.5 grams

Rated 1 (low score) to 5 (high score)

Packaging/Weight:  For this category, I’m giving it a solid 3.  The flower was bang on and weighed perfectly.  Like most regulated cannabis, it is packaged in a small plastic container that came in a cardboard box.  It had all the required labels and stamps but the extra packaging is more to recycle, in my opinion.  However, it did include a small Boveda pack which was unfortunately hard.  It was packaged in February of this year.

Look:  I’m rating this category another 3.  This batch was full of small, popcorn sized buds and had some unwanted sticks inside.  The flower was a medium green colour, with a moderate amount of both pistols and trichomes seen.  What did impress me was how compact the buds were, really solid and ground up nicely even when it was on the dry side.

Smell:  I’ll rate this category a 4.  The initial aroma was mild and a bit flowery, but very pleasant.  The product description says the cannabis has earthy, herbal, and woody notes.  A Leafly listing says the profile includes some of the more common terpenes such as myrcene (mango), caryophyllene (pepper) and pinene (pine). 

Taste:  I am rating this a 3.5.  I didn’t mind the flavour, which was mild when inhaled in a joint.  I couldn’t detect any obvious chemical flavour and tasted clean.  The Cannabis Somm says in his review of the product that he detected the flavour of potpourri, watch it here.

Comments:  The solid nugs are what stands out with this dried-herb!  This hybrid strain is technically considered to be in the range with other high THC products.  What matters is how the product makes you feel and I did enjoy it overall and think it was worth the cost.  This is a brand who celebrates Canadians with their love for the leaf.

Available in many formats including 1g, 7g and 15g sizes.

Grow Notes:  This cultivar is easy to grow and will flower in about 60 days indoors.  It has an average yield of 1 to 3 ounces per square foot, as per this Leafly article.  With landrace genetics from Brazil and India, this strain was first bred in the Netherlands by Green House Seeds.  This producer uses plants sourced from British Columbia, which are expertly cultivated in Ontario.
