White Rhino was originally created in Amsterdam by one of the best known seed companies, Green House Seeds co. This company normally mixes famous strains with landrace strains, which is precisely what White Rhino is. This indica strain, a cross between White Widow and an Afghani landrace strain, has a high THC content that will leave tokers relaxed, happy and maybe a little hungry.

White Rhino strain infoWhite Rhino was created by Green House Seeds co. This is good news for a number of reasons. Firstly, they’re simply considered one of the best, producing numerous fantastic combos. Secondly, Green House Seeds co. seeds are usually easy to come by, as the Dutch seed companies realised that they could make a lot of money simply from selling seeds, and not purely selling weed.
White Rhino is an almost pure indica. We say "almost" because it’s an original indica strain crossed with an indica landrace strain. This is very common for the Dutch seed companies to do, and they were likely crossing these two strains for a reason. The strain itself is pretty old, having been created around 1996. It’s 20% sativa, 80% indica, meaning that it has strong indica effects, but also a slight cerebral buzz.
White Rhino genetics
- White Widow (Brazillian x South Indian landrace strains)
- Afghani landrace strain
White Rhino THC percentageWhite Rhino’s official THC percentage is 20.19%.
White Rhino CBD percentageWhite Rhino also has 0.11% CBD and 0.05% CBN. This helps balance the strain, and makes it a lot more of a medicinal strain that wouldn't otherwise be possible without this small amount of CBD.
White Rhino price
Thanks to White Rhino seeds being easy to come by, as well as it being a well-established strain at over 20 years old, White Rhino won't hurt your pocketbook too much. Saying that, Green House Seeds is actually one of the most expensive coffee shops (although it’s definitely worth it for its amazing choice of strains and ridiculously high-quality buds) so if you go there you’d probably pay about $12 a gram. The average price is Amsterdam is around $8 a gram.
White Rhino taste
White Rhino oil, wax, shatter, edibles etc.
White Rhino is a fantastic choice for oil, wax, shatter, etc. This is because it has large amounts of crystals and trichomes covering the strain. This is a concentrate enthusiast's favourite thing, so if you’re looking to make concentrates you should definitely pick this strain up.
Edibles are easy to make with basically any strain, so just get some White Rhino and make sure that you firstly decarboxylate the weed. We have a great guide to decarboxylation which you can find here. You could also just use already vaped bud (AVB) which means you can get high once from vaping your weed, and then get high again with your AVB. This recycling of the buds make this one of the most cost-efficient and healthiest methods of smoking weed.

As a landrace indica cross, this strain is very sleepy. This can be perfect if that’s what you want, so if you’re looking to sleep well, or for help with insomnia then look no further. However, don’t smoke this strain in the morning if you’re trying to get active. It will have the exact opposite effect. Couch lock will ensue, you will feel drained of energy completely.
If you are feeling overly sleepy and you’ve lost all your energy, then either have a coffee, a cold shower, or both. This will help you get some energy back and you'll feel less stoned. If you’re looking for the best strain to help with sleep, then you should smoke an indica like this. Wait for an hour or two before sleeping, though. The cerebral buzz from this strain will probably keep you awake for an hour or so if you start thinking, so just be weary of that.
White Rhino flowering time
- Indoor 9 weeks
- Outdoor by the first week of October (Northern hemisphere)
A very short plant, White Rhino reacts incredibly well to both SoG and ScrOG techniques. The plant is a classic indica and is very short and bushy. This makes it incredibly easy for SoG techniques. For more information about what SoG is, see the video above.
White Rhino Grow tips
White Rhino weed seeds
White Rhino seeds are available online from the original breeder. This is the best thing about Dutch strains. The Californians may have some amazing strains out there with ridiculous THC percentages, and some crazy concentrates with up to 99% THC, but when it comes to reliable growing and easy to access strains, then the Dutch trump (mind the pun) the Californians every time.

Green House Seed Co. is run by the company you probably saw on the Vice documentary where they go out and try to find landrace strains. If you haven’t seen it, check it out here:
Green House Seed Company
They were created in 1985 and they are one of the most popular seed banks in the world. It helps growers partner with seeds & strains that suit their needs, medicinal or recreational. They only allow you on their site if you’re from a country which currently has legal weed.
Green House Seed Co. was founded by Arjan Roskam and Shantibaba, and is managed by Franco Loja. The series about them hunting for rare landrace strains is incredibly interesting, and their coffee shops are some of the best in Amsterdam (provided you’re willing to pay the price; it’s very expensive.) They also have some Californian strains in Amsterdam, so this could be a great place to try some #dankenstein strains. The dankenstein strains are some of the most psychedelic strains in existence.
What is the Medicine Man strain?
Photo: @michiganjamedicinemanThis strain is often confused with its close relative, White Rhino. This is because they're both landrace strain crosses. Medicine Man is effectively a better-bred version of White Rhino. They are both the exact same landrace strains crossed together, but after many backcrosses, Medicine Man was created. This strain is known for:
- Treating chronic aches, pains, and migraines
- Reducing stress & anxiety
- Could help treat seizures, although more evidence is needed
- Closely associated with the White Rhino strain
People also get White Rhino confused with the following names, most of them are probably just the same strain:
- Black Rhino weed
- Purple Rhino strain
- Nirvana White Rhino (this is Nirvana Seeds version of White Rhino)
- Rhino 8
- White Rhino OG Kush
