If you've been suffering from a creative block, you've found a heck of a strain to help you get through it. White Zombie is a stress relieving hybrid strain that is rumored to be a descendant of Zombie OG, however many believe that its creator just loved Rob Zombie and it has no ties to the White or Zombie family. With no breeders on record to ask, this one is likely to stay a mystery.
What is not a mystery, however, is this strain's potency. With THC levels coming in at a low of 15%, users can expect an enjoyable and long-lasting high. These forest green, spade-shaped nugs give off a sweet and woody aroma and are covered in fiery orange hairs and milky white trichomes. The flavor profile is sweet, nutty, and buttery, and paired with the sticky resin layer on each nug, it is reminiscent of pancakes and syrup at a cozy cabin in the woods.
The White Zombie high is euphoric and nearly instantaneous. After the first toke you'll feel a cerebral rush come over you, your limbs will tingle, and your body will go completely energetic. Some even report that this initial wave gets them in the mood for some lovin'. If you are one of the lucky ones who is aroused at this phase, be aware that it could last for hours. That joyful feeling of uplifting creativity rolls throughout the high and gives you the urge to get to work with your hands. Once the energy begins to fade, you'll find yourself in a state of almost complete sedation. Now would be a good time to grab a pillow and a movie, because you'll be here a while.
Because of the potent and prominent energy, White Zombie provides, this is a great strain to try out if you struggle with fatigue, depression, or other health issues that cause low energy and sluggishness. However, because of the hard comedown, it is also good for those who suffer from mild cases of insomnia. This sedative period is also beneficial to patients with chronic pain, headaches, bipolar, and anxiety. Be aware that in excess this strain tends to be psychoactive and can cause paranoia if used irresponsibly.
White Zombie grows into a medium sized plant with long, deep green leaves and is best suited for an intermediate grower. This beauty will flourish indoors or out with a flowering time of around 9 to 10 weeks or late September to early October for harvesting. The plants are resistant to most molds and mildews and are a high yielding dream.
Whether its name stems from The Devil's Reject himself, or from a clever play on the Zombie family lineage, this is a must try strain for anyone who loves a good buttery bud. Artists love it for its ability to get the creative juices flowing and give space for intellectual stimulation. It is energetic and yet somehow calming, making it a great late afternoon to evening strain.
