Update: this is a very old article highlighting our early stages of cannabinoid testing. Cannabinoid research has made a lot of progress since these articles, we have since also tested all of our strains for terpenes and cannabinoids.
Medical Marijuana: Snow White, Our First Strain Analysis
First strain of our medical marijuana strains to be tested was our Snow White. This medical marijuana strain is a fastflowering strain (8-9 weeks), compact (60 cm), very homogenous, productive and THC rich. Our Snow White is in appearance an Indica with a short length of around 60cm, ovalshaped broad leaves, of a darkgreen color and compact in stature.So we were really surprised to find out through laboratory analisis that it is indeed a Sativa dominant medical marijuana with Indica traits. The botanical test resulted in a DNA fingerprint, based on the cannabinoids and their respective ratios, of that of a CBG Haze x WW.
Here you see some impressive Snow White’s from one of our clients.
This chemotype is a cross between the chemovars WW/PP (White Widow/ Power Plant are both sativa dominant) and chemovar CBG Haze (predominantly Indica). With the chemotype WW/PP clearly being dominant in the Snow White. We thought by crossing her with our NL Special (highly Indica dominant) and through selection over several generations of Indica dominant phenos we had come up with an Indica dominant monster. That’s why we were surprised with the outcome. Upon further examination of this conclusion we could understand the outcome more clearly. Our Snow White descends from a White Widow (Sativa origin with a high level of THC) crossed with a Sativa dominant C’99 of Haze descent. The smell (earthy, mint with a touch of Haze) and the high a fastdeveloping powerful headbuzz also point to a Sativa heritage.
Medical Marijuana Cannabinoids In Our Snow White
We provided the lab a B+ grade sample of medical marijuana. Would it have have been an A grade sample of medical marijuana then the percentages of the cannabinoids would have been slightly higher.
- CBD: 0,05% (extraordinarily high for this chemotype) in the sample medical marijuana
- THC: 16,7% (normal)
- THCV: 0,05% (low)
- CBG: 0,2% (relatively high)
- CBC: 0,05% (low)

Medical Marijuana Test Results: Snow White
Here is the interpretation of the results of this medical marijuana grow. Based on the percentage of THC and the presence of Sativa markers (underlining Sativa dominance) cryptics 1,3 and 4 and the Sativa pigmentation of the flower in the sample of medical marijuana we are dealing with a Sativa dominante strain (chemotype: WW/PP). However, because of the high percentage of CBG and the presence of markers CBD and THCV we can conclude that this medical marijuana strain is chemotype of CBG-Haze (indica) x WW/PP.
Medical Marijuana Effects Of Snow White
Because of the relative high level THC paired with the high CBD level and low CBC and THCV you will encounter a fastdeveloping, powerful activating headbuzz. In higher dosage you will notice the effect will change into a more bodybuzz, indica effect. This is a result of the accumulation of CBG and the presence of CBD.
Therapeutical Benefits Of Snow White As A Medical Marijuana Strain
The following section is a summary of the Medical Benefits of Marijuana of our Snow White. This medical marijuana strain is highly suitable to relieve symptoms of neuropathic pain, especially with a high dosage. Preferred method of administering the medication is by using oral/sublingual oil or vaporizing. If you use it like this it will help stimulate apetite and help you sleep. This test tells us exactly what Marijuana Medical Purpose the Snow White has, so we can provide accurate information to Medical marijuana Dispensaries.
Helps relieve symptoms of Crohn’s disease and Colitis Ulcerosa (application methods #1, #2, #3 and #4). Helps with sleeping disorders thanks to the relatively high level of CBG (application methods #1, #2 and #3)

Application methods of medical marijuana:
- Joints (with tobacco, resulting in a more indica bodystone)
- Pure joints
- Whole trichome extraction, as tea for instance
- Edibles (usually prepared from isolated cannabinoids)
