Strain Review: Mr. White
Mr. White feels like a hybrid whose onset effects lean more toward sativa with its euphoric, uplifting high, but quickly mellows into indica, oneness-with-couch territory.
Our intrepid ganja chronnoisseur, Dragonfly, travels the world in search of the best cannabis and evaluates flowers and concentrates ranging from the popular and plentiful to the rare and exotic. She samples each strain in joints and vaporizers, taking careful notes of the smell, taste and nuanced effects of each one.
Crossing Heisenberg hasn’t always been a good idea. But, crossing Heisenberg with The White has turned out to be a genius move. Clearly, there was only one name suitable for such a pairing. And Mr. White is as shockingly frosty as Heisenberg’s meth was blue.
Mr. White’s lineage is both world-renowned and quite obscure. The White, so named for its incomparable snow-covered appearance, is one of the most famously frosty strains in cannabis. An indica-dominant hybrid, The White looks like a crystalline winter wonderland. On its own, The White is notoriously lacking in the smell department, a fact that has been easy to overlook since it’s hard to get past the sugar-coated sparkle. But with Mr. White, we have the best of both worlds: the overwhelming trichome content of the White paired with the fruity, subtle haze of Heisenberg.
Also spelled Highzenburg, this part of Mr. White’s parentage is shrouded in mystery. The name is known, but not much else. Highzenburg was born to a Blue Ice mother (Alaskan Ice, which is White Widow x Haze, crossed with Blue Dream) – that was inadvertently pollinated during flower. But there purportedly were so many different strains growing in the room at the time, it would take the Maury Show to find out who the father is. What is much more certain, is that the resultant Mr. White feels like a hybrid whose onset effects lean more toward sativa with its euphoric, uplifting high, but quickly mellows into indica, oneness-with-couch territory. And like Mr. White on a bad day, it packs a punch – the sample I reviewed tested out at 20.5 percent.
