Features of white Russian CBD hemp flower
The buds of white Russian hemp flowers are relatively small. They look incredibly similar to a typical Sativa bud, presenting quite loose leaves that possess a furry, fluffy quality to them that look almost like the leaves of an entirely different plant.
They have typical leaf coloration, offering a light green shade that catches the sun rather beautifully. You can expect this strain to carry over the tradition of its parent white widow in its white trichomes, as this strain will often be liberally coated in these shiny, almost frost-like speckles of hair.
White Russian hemp flower is an extremely fragrant plant, smelling sweet fruit and skunk even in its vegetative cycle.
There is also a small hint of citrus fruits, giving some delightful floral flavors that leave the nose tingling for more.
Even more when burnt, the smell flourishes, giving a slight funkiness that is ever so slightly harsh and difficult to handle if overindulged.
The flavor is quite similar to its aroma, offering levels of both earthiness and citrus. It is aided by the other developing flavors of spice and herbaceousness that serve to stop the dank flavors of the earth from overpowering your palate.
With a smooth and spicy flavor with undertones of skunk and earth, white Russian’s high is quite cerebral but can lead to couchlock when over-indulged.
White Russian is a strain that owes its existence to an already massively famous pair of strains. Both white widows and AK-47 are renowned for their distinctive flavors and their effects, so any strain made from their genetics will have to be exceptionally interesting and powerful.
Thankfully, white Russian meets these criteria perfectly, offering a uniquely intriguing flavor profile that somehow melds together elements of funky earth with flavors of citrus-filled spice.
On top of that, the effects of this strain are a gentle distillation of both of its parent strains, offering a continuous, energetic drive that leaves you feeling like you can handle absolutely anything life throws at you.
