No, we're not talking about everyone's favorite holiday game - instead, White Elephant is a strain that's hard to come by yet offers a nice blend of hybrid effects for all kinds of users. The breeders of this strain are unknown, yet it's common knowledge that it was created by crossing White Widow and Purple Elephant. This strain blends a mellow happiness with great medicinal effects.
White Elephant can be somewhat strong, with some users reporting a THC level of 23%, while others find it more in the 18% range. Either way, it's nothing to shake a stick at as it provides a decently long high. Nugs are a dark green and are covered with tons of tiny orange pistils. It has a rather pleasing smell that's a mixture of berry, pine, and earthy scents, with a taste that's more on the grape side.
Despite the strong cerebral high you'll get from this strain, your euphoric attitude will often be overshadowed by how completely relaxed you are. Many note that after taking a hit they completely forget about what they were about to do, making this a great choice for unwinding at the end of the day. Smoking White Elephant with friends is often the way to go, as you'll find an increase in conversation and some might come down with a case of the giggles.
Its moderate THC levels make White Elephant a nice choice for medicinal cannabis users as well since it's a strain that will completely wash away stress and depression. The high you get from this choice will make you feel like you're wrapped in a blanket of carefree happiness, something that's often hard to come by. Minor pains can also be alleviated, and those with insomnia enjoy taking a large hit before bedtime.
Even though White Elephant is a bit of a mystery, you'll have no problem finding seeds to grow at home. It produces short plants that have a decent output of buds after an 8 week flowering period. Play around with various growing techniques and climates to see what works best for you, and enjoy a rare commodity once you harvest.
With a high that melts over your body, White Elephant is a nicely balanced hybrid that's great for social occasions or for taking some quiet time alone at home. Many report an intensely dry mouth after smoking this strain, so keep the water handy and enjoy your relaxation time.
