The Cannabis Cup People’s Choice winner in 2000, White Smurf is a hybrid strain bred from a Northern Lights x Skunk #1 female and a pure Dutch sativa male. Wonderful smells of fresh citrus fruit will entice you as accents of orange pistils and dusty white resin stand out in a sea of green. This strain is a great choice for social butterflies to lounge out to after a nice dinner.
The traits and effects of the globally respected Blueberry strain have been preserved in this autoflowering version. Smurfberry is a densely flowering and blue-tinged hybrid with a good leaf to flower ratio. Sweet and fruity with that classic earth and Blueberry flavor, this strain might be short and stocky, but it packs a sensual and satisfying punch. The cooler the temps, the deeper the shades of blue on leaves and flowers.
The full life cycle for this rapidly developing cannabis strain is 8 weeks, with flowering beginning early until heavy and compact buds strain branches to their limit. The yield is altogether high for such a diminutive plant, with 300g/m² possible.

Ancient Smurf legend told of a rare albino Smurf who would bring peace and good luck to the Smurf village. Ok, not really, but that could be a plausible backstory for the name for this mellow and illuminating strain. This well-balanced bud’s earned the distinction of People’s Choice in the 2000 High Times Cannabis Cup held in Amsterdam. White Smurf’s THC levels have been measured at between 16% and 22%.
White Smurf is distinguished by small to medium flowers that adhere in tapered, elongated shapes, somewhat resembling cocoons. The buds have a pronounced indica-typical structure, compact and dense with tightly coiled leaves. The small leaves themselves are a dark shade of green; frequently, high concentrations of anthocyanin pigments in some phenotypes also result in shades of deep blue or indigo, hence the “Smurf” in this bud’s name. The “White,” meanwhile, comes courtesy of a thick coating of translucent white trichomes that ensure the strain’s psychoactivity.
When properly cured, White Smurf gives off the slightly spicy scent of peppermint and herbs. There’s also a faint hint of tart citrus. Grinding up the multicolored flowers releases a distinctly skunky odor. When burnt and inhaled, White Smurf hits smooth and goes down easily. On the exhale, this smoke has an orange flavor with some herbal notes on the exhale.
Blue Cookies is the daughter of the hybrid GSC and indica Blueberry. However, there have been disputes – some believe Blue Cookies to actually be the daughter of F1Durb and Florida OG.
Northern Lights x Skunk Strai
Originating from Holland, Northern Lights X Skunk is perhaps one of the most famous and potent strains. This Grade A+ Indica is a medium green that surely has as many colored hairs as the northern lights themselves. With mostly bright golden hairs, this moderately fluffy strain is very sticky with white crystals coating it’s earthy surface. This adherent strain smells of sweet pine and sour lemon which is then accompanied by a tangy, earthy and smooth taste. Widely used for stress, anxiety, depression, nausea or acute pain, Northern lights give a great sense of euphoria with a relaxed and mellow sensation. The physical experience is more of a comfortable relaxation instead of one that will make you want to “get up and go”.
Like most heavily-leaning indica strains, this one will bring the chill. A stoney effect quickly clouds the mind, leading to a softening of the muscles and an urge to fall back onto a couch and remain there for hours. This hybrid is ideal for managing pain, inducing hunger, or alleviating nausea. It may also help for controlling the symptoms of depression, PTSD, insomnia, or restlessness. Northern Lights X Skunk is strongly recommended for later evening or nighttime use, as it is a knock-out strain.
Common side effects include cottonmouth or dry eyes.
Skunk #1 is a hybrid marijuana strain that has influenced cannabis on a global scale, parenting a horde of Skunk crosses since it first bloomed in the late 1970s. Sacred Seed Co. originally bred Skunk #1 using diverse genetics from around the world; Afghani, Acapulco Gold, and Colombian Gold varieties converged through an intricate selective breeding process that spanned several generations, and finally the genetic cornerstone of countless cannabis hybrids was born.
The original Skunk #1 gave rise to several variations that were later harvested in the gardens of Sensi Seeds, Dutch Passion, Flying Dutchmen, Nirvana Seeds, and Royal Queen Seeds. As its name suggests, Skunk #1 buds radiate with an aromatic blend of sour skunkiness and subtle earthy notes. This hybrid offers elevated creativity through its high-energy buzz, while stress and appetite lossmelt away with Skunk #1’s potency.
Northern Lights is an indica marijuana strain made by crossing Afghani with Thai. Northern Lights produces euphoric effects that settle in firmly throughout the body, relaxing muscles and easing the mind. Consumers say this strain has a pungently sweet and spicy flavor profile that is smooth on the exhale. Medical marijuana patients choose Northern Lights to help relieve symptoms associated with depression, stress, pain and insomnia. Growers say this strain features purple and crystal-coated buds and grows best indoors with a flowering time of 45-50 days.
Northern Lights stands among the most famous strains of all time, a pure indica cherished for its resinous buds, fast flowering, and resilience during growth. This strain has given rise to famous hybrids like Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze. Rumor has it that Northern Lights first sprouted near Seattle, Washington, but was propagated out of Holland after 1985 at what is now Sensi Seeds.
Type of High
Smurf Weed marijuana strain induces moderate cerebral euphoria followed by deep body-mind relaxation. Uplifts mood, alleviates depression, relieves stress, stimulates appetite. Promotes sleep, helps with pain, muscle spasms, cramps and insomnia.
White Smurf grows well in both indoor and outdoor settings though it prefers hot, humid climates. Growers can accentuate the flower’s blue coloring by exposing White Smurf to cooler temperatures just before harvest time. As an indica-leaning hybrid, White Smurf develops short, squat plants that benefit from Sea of Green methods to maximize flower production and control nutrient distribution. White Smurf reaches maturity in 56 days indoors and in early October outside. White Smurf can be obtained only in clone form.
White Smurf’s versatile properties give it many different uses for medical cannabis patients. The bud’s early cerebral focus can help those with attention deficit disorders to concentrate on a single task. Its mood-lifting effects can also have a temporarily beneficial effect on stress and depression. White Smurf can also improve physical pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like fibromyalgia or lupus. Because its onset is associated with recursive thinking patterns that can lead to paranoia, White Smurf is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Effects and sensations
Reflecting her skunk and sativa heritage, White Smurf’s flavor has been described as “full and rich”, “musky but sweet”, and “powerful”, but it has also been described as “fresh” and “citrus-like”. Her stone is both relaxing and wakeful. After one joint, this strain gives a deep, warm body buzz that feels like walking through water, but doesn’t stupefy or lead to snores. White Smurf starts a smooth reggae rhythm pulsing through your body, a social, happy, positive vibe that makes a superb after-dinner smoke. Cannabis Cup attendees agreed – they showed their appreciation by awarding this hybrid sativa/indica strain with the People’s Choice as well as the overall Cup in 2000.
