White Rhino is an indica-dominant hybrid (basically a full indica with 90% indica genetics) created by Greenhouse Seeds. This amazing strain has placed second in the High Times Cannabis Cup of 1996 for its heavy head high. Greenhouse Seeds created this strain by crossing Afghan with unknown Brazilian and South Indian strains. Although genetics of this strain is a mystery, it is still a great smoke that provides one of the best head highs in the industry. In addition, it is great for those who use marijuana to treat their medical conditions due to its high THC content and mostly absent side effects.
White Rhino gives off a strong and heavy headed high. For beginners, it is best to take it slow as it may take a few moments for the full effects to begin. Once the effects begin, users will feel the body slowly numbing. Once the body becomes numb, laziness and heavy relaxation will take over, preventing you from moving or getting up. Couch-lock syndrome will definitely take over you. Similar to the heavy body high, the head high is quite heavy. Many users report a buzzy feeling with heaviness on the eyes. Euphoria and happiness will enter the mind and relieve the stresses of the day. Tingliness on the cheeks and the rest of the body is also very common. Other effects of this strain include sleepiness/drowsiness and the munchies. Due to its heavy effects, we recommend this strain for evening or night time use. We also suggest that you prepare snacks and prepare to be couch-lazy for the rest of the night.
This strain is considered one of the best strains for medicinal use due to its high THC content and heavy sedative effects. It is used to treat conditions like:
- High stress
- Chronic pain
- Lack of appetite
- Muscle spasms
Side effects are often limited to dry eyes and dry mouths. However, inexperienced users may encounter headaches due to its high THC level.
Appearance, Aroma, and Taste
White Rhino’s bud is small to medium-sized with a dense coat of trichomes on top. Orange pistils are quite prominent in this particular strain. It is not known for its flavour or smell but the aroma is quite earthy and woody with undertones of sweetness upon closer inspection. The smoke is a bit harsh and hashy but reflects the potency of White Rhino. Overall, we recommend this strain for those who are looking for a heavy hitting strain for medicinal and/or recreational use.
