The white color in cannabis occurs in nature occasionally, as a consequence of a double recessive gene responsible for the absence of chlorophyll or because of a genetic mutation of the genes involved in pigmentation.
White strains are generally famous for offering smokers a consistently high-quality weed, inducing powerful feelings of relaxation and calm.
The pigment of white weed seeds
White Widow is widely regarded as the queen of the ‘White’ family. She has often been used to form other ‘white strains’ or share genetic material with other ‘white’ varieties. Other denominators are that white strains are covered in trichomes, have a high THC level resulting in a powerful high. Popular white strains include Snow White, White Widow and Amnesia Haze x White Widow.
There is a lot of confusion and misinformation online about white weed seeds – from tales of New York White, an albino cannabis purportedly growing in New York sewers to people thinking that white/silvery seeds are a sign of immaturity. The truth is that white weed seeds do exist and are strains derived from White Widow, which was developed from seeds with dominant white pigmentation.
There is a lot of uncertainty about white cannabis seeds. We have therefore answered the most frequently asked questions below.
Remember, just like animals and other living things, cannabis seeds are biologically different from one another (even if they are technically the same strain) and therefore will exhibit different physical characteristics. Don’t let these natural differences fool you into thinking that a larger, rounder, and darker seed (for example) is of better quality than a lighter, smaller, and more oval-shaped one.
We hear this question all the time from clients and beginner growers, and the answer is a resounding no. There is simply no way to tell the sex of a cannabis seed just by looking at it.
Growing Seeds From A Bag (Bagseed)
It’s important to only conduct this test if you are planning to germinate the seeds immediately afterwards. The viable seeds that sunk to the bottom of the glass will have taken in water, crossing the membrane of the seed and signalling that it’s time to come to life—activating germination.
A quick web search will bring up all kinds of myths about how to tell female cannabis seeds from males. One of the most popular ones comes from a chart showing 5 different seeds that claims that the female seeds have “a perfectly round volcano-like depression at the bottom (from where the seed was attached to the plant).”
This is absolutely not true. As we explained earlier, cannabis seeds naturally look different, and no single physical trait of a seed can tell you whether that seed contains the genetics for a male or female plant. The only way to tell a female cannabis plant from a male is by looking at its flowers when it begins to sex. Don’t be fooled into throwing out perfectly healthy seeds just because a popular internet chart told you so.
The White marijuana seeds get their name from the heavy coat of white trichomes on the leaves of plants. This hard-hitting indica comes with 26% THC, which makes you happy and giggly before falling into deep sedation.
As mentioned earlier, The White journey comes in two chapters. The first feels more like a sativa as users experience a buzzy head high that feels focused, giggly, and creative.

The second chapter feels like a potent indica that makes you tired, sedated, and lazy from head to toe.
