Appearance & Aroma
Like its parent strain, White Widow, White Rhino possesses a distinctly earthy aroma backed up by elements of heavy wood, such as maple and oak. You can expect to smell the tranquillity of a forest when first breaking up the bud, as well as a sweetness that is not too different from sweet tree sap.
Once smoked, the sweetness dissipates, replaced by a profoundly oaken smell that is highly reminiscent of antique furniture.
This Indica strain possesses a wide variety of complexities, not just in its aroma but also in its taste.
As noted, White Rhino got its name thanks to its strangely pointy leaf and bud structure, making it look like a rhinoceros horn coming out from the plant. Though White Rhino plants tend to grow bushy and wide, they can grow quite tall in keeping with most Indica hybrids.
The nugs themselves are beautiful, with abundant quantities of crystal trichomes that cling to the outside of the plant, giving it the look of having a white coating all along the exterior.
If you want to get the best of this exotic-looking strain, it is best to try and grow it yourself. Let’s look at what specialized knowledge you need to try and grow some White Rhino yourself.
Effects & Benefits
White Rhino’s numbing effects throughout the body are sought after by medical users suffering from chronic pains and aches. Like many Indica dominant strains, this one should be saved in the evening or at night and can be effective at helping with insomnia. Others might choose the strain to relieve anxiety, stress, nausea, migraines and improve appetite.
As a high-strength Indica hybrid, White Rhino goes under the general category of being very useful for mental disorders. Many different strains can tout their abilities at combating conditions like these, such as excess anxiety, stress or depression.
The main reason is that strains like White Rhino are bred to have extremely high levels of THC, which in turn causes a significant effect on the CB1 receptor in the endocannabinoid system in the body. This occurrence allows the brain to help mitigate negative feelings and emotions and encourage the release of serotonin and other helpful neurochemicals.
White Rhino is also helpful in dealing with large amounts of pain due to THC’s effects on the brain’s pain detection. By far, the most beneficial medical aspect of White Rhino is helping to treat insomnia. Like many Indicas, White Rhino is excellent at encouraging users to fall asleep due to its hypnotic, couch-locking effects. Many people have also reported that it is excellent at treating fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and generally improving the mood of whoever uses it.
Like White Widow, White Rhino is a versatile and valuable flower that can help treat a myriad of medical ailments and leave users feeling relaxed and soothed. With a robust flavour and smell that may be the closest you will ever come to smoking marijuana that smells like a forest, White Rhino is a fan favourite among marijuana aficionados looking for new and exciting experiences.
Whether you are looking for new flavour sensations or you are just after a potent Indica that can leave you entirely relaxed and calm, White Rhino is a great one to try out yourself.
Whether you buy it for yourself or you try growing it, make sure you give it some time for the effects to kick in – it might seem like the bud is somehow defective, but give it a little time; you will discover the rhinoceros horns.
