In nature, the white buffalo, also known as the white bison, is a special breed of American bison that possesses white hair. In several Native American religions, the white buffalo is considered sacred.
They are an extremely rare breed, and the same can be said for the marijuana strain of the same name, which may or may not become sacred to users!
What is the White Buffalo Strain?
The White Buffalo strain is a cross of a sativa strain and a pair of indica dominant hybrids. It is a strain known for its tough structure and its capacity for flowering quickly; this is probably down to its Blackberry Kush, Bay 11, and Romulan lineage. White Buffalo itself is a sativa-dominant hybrid capable of providing a debilitating high if you overdo it.
White Buffalo Aroma
Users are often amazed at the odd scent of sage and dark fruit that they get when they first encounter White Buffalo. You may also get a hint of diesel along with overtones of freshly picked herbs and spices. If you break apart the buds, you will be rewarded with a smell of sweetness in the air that lingers.
White Buffalo Flavor
The sweetness travels to the tongue as you get a combination of herbs, diesel, plums, and apple candy. You should experience an extra ‘kick’ of sweetness at the very end.
White Buffalo Appearance
White Buffalo has a darker color scheme than other strains, but you can still appreciate the blue/purple hue, along with the orange pistils. The glistening trichomes are a real joy to behold when the strain is close to being ripe.
White Buffalo Strain Grow Info
As White Buffalo has a sativa dominance, you won’t be shocked to learn that it prefers a climate with long summers, intense sunlight, and equal hours of sun and darkness during flowering. If you live south of the equator, you should have no problem growing White Buffalo outdoors. That isn’t the case for those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere.
However, growers in California, for example, should be fine, because White Buffalo is extremely resilient and can handle low temperatures to a point. If you expose this plant to a lack of sunlight with short summers and long nights, its flowering time will increase significantly. As a result, Northern Hemisphere growers tend to grow this strain in a controlled environment.
When you grow White Buffalo indoors, you need to top the plant early because it grows to a significant height. Topping also improves circulation and ensures the plant receives plenty of light along with good air circulation. Although you can use a hydroponics system indoors, White Buffalo prefers to grow in soil.
It isn’t easy to get your hands on White Buffalo seeds but when you do, and you grow indoors, the flowering time can be as low as 7 weeks. You should also get up to 16 ounces per square meter planted. If you grow this strain outdoors, it will be ready for harvest from the final week in September onwards. It can yield up to 16 ounces per plant outdoors.
White Buffalo THC Content – Highest Test
The THC level of White Buffalo is the topic of fierce debate with its content slated as being anywhere between 15% and 25%; quite the difference. We have seen a stash of White Buffalo from Space Monkey Meds which had a THC content of 26.42%! Definitely not for newcomers.
White Buffalo CBD Content – Highest Test
The CBD content of White Buffalo is negligible. It is usually below 0.1%, which means a THC to CBD ratio of at least 250:1 in some cases.
What Can I Expect When I Use White Buffalo Marijuana?
There is no playing around when it comes to this strain! It will hit you very quickly and begins with a euphoric cerebral high that elevates your mood. Users often report feeling an odd yet pleasant tingling buzz emanating from their temples. While you will probably feel energized at first, White Buffalo eventually helps you calm down and relax. Even so, it is not a bad afternoon smoke if you need a pick me up during a boring day at work.
Medical Benefits of White Buffalo Marijuana
One of the most popular uses of White Buffalo is for the treatment of depression. Although therapy sessions with experienced and qualified professionals are the best option, not everyone can afford the expensive sessions. When you grow your own White Buffalo, you have another potential method of stabilizing your mood, improving your self-confidence, and making you feel the joy of life once again.
Its anti-stress properties make it an option for patients suffering from anxiety. A common symptom of individuals with an anxiety disorder is fatigue; mainly due to the body being in a constant ‘fight or flight’ state which is mentally, physically, and emotionally draining. White Buffalo can provide an energy boost while tackling your anxiety. Because it is such a strong marijuana strain, you can also use it to treat pains and aches such as the swelling and redness associated with inflammation.
Possible Side Effects of White Buffalo Marijuana
White Buffalo is a potent strain so you may experience a headache, dizziness, or elevated anxiety levels if you use too much. Otherwise, the main cause of concern is dehydration, which in itself causes headaches. We advise you to keep a jug of water beside you and sip while you use this strain.
Final Thoughts on White Buffalo Cannabis
White Buffalo isn’t cheap; in fact, it can cost over $400 per ounce, and it certainly isn’t plentiful, but it is worth tracking down. If you are struggling with anxiety and need something to give you a lift, look no further than this fascinating sativa.
Its eclectic genetic mix accounts for its unusual scent, taste, and effects. Its high comes at you quickly and can boost energy, confidence, and self-esteem. Its potency also means it is a potentially good option as a painkiller. It is fairly easy to grow, but we recommend doing so indoors because it needs a very specific climate to thrive.
