Gipsy Widow is an indica-dominant hybrid with an interesting heritage. It is a cross between two different phenotypes of White Widow, pheno A and pheno B, the former being on the indica side and the latter being more sativa-dominant. The strain behaves like an indica up until its flowering phase, then starts to show some sativa characteristics. The high is relaxing and cerebral at the same time.
Exotic Seeds - Gipsy Widow: Astounding crossing between two White Widow phenotypes
Gipsy Widow is an indica-dominant hybrid brought to you by the guys and gals over at Exotic Seed. It is an inbred cross of two White Widow phenotypes, pheno A and pheno B. Pheno A is on the indica side with dense buds and great resin production, while pheno B brings other advantageous sativa genes to the table. The ratio between indica and sativa genes is 70:30.
During its vegetative phase, the strain behaves like a pure indica, but shows its sativa characteristics during the flowering phase, stretching out and producing elongated buds. In late flowering, those buds become more compact and heavy, showing the need for the support canes if you want to avoid the stem from snapping. The strain is suitable both for indoor and outdoor growing, with a flowering time of 8-9 weeks during which it produces a nice yield of 500-550g/m².
The aroma and flavour of Gipsy Widow mostly consist of citrus tones, especially those of fresh lemons, with a hint of earthy and incense-like undertones. The high is extraordinary due to its balanced combination of indica and sativa genes; very physical and relaxing, with that nice body buzz common to indicas, but at the same time you will experience that head-in-the-clouds sativa effect.
If you have been searching for a perfect balanced mix of indica and sativa genes, look no further. Gipsy Widow has everything you could ever want from a strain. It is robust and compact, with long, dense, resinous buds, and above all that, a shorter-than-expected flowering time.
