Highland White Lightning Review

White Lighting from Highland is an indica-dominant hybrid with a strong lineage that includes White Widow and Northern Lights #5.

Highland White Lightning is an indica-dominant strain that was created when Northern Lights #5 was crossed with White Widow.

Highland describes White Lightning as having a spicy, earthy aroma with undertones of gas. The buds are a combination of light and dark green leaves with pronounced orange hairs and covered in a heavy coat of sugary trichome crystals. Highland’s White Lighting was definitely more expensive then other products, but that’s okay if it delivers an outstanding experience.

So how does it compare for similar cultivars like Delta 9’s White Out?

The product arrived in a medium sized blue bag with resealable zipper top. Tearing open the package released a complex aroma that started a musky earthy floral before changing to a steadfast herbal with a very very subtle hint of gas of diesel. The smell is not overpowering but there was certainly a number of scents going mixing together and the end result if quite pleasant.


Visually Highland’s White Lighting looks really good. These medium sized plump buds look great with their many shades of green (light to dark) tones, brown hair highlights and layer of trichomes so thick it almost reminded us of sugar coated breakfast cereal.


White Lightning is on point in terms of matching aroma to flavour. While both the aroma and flavour profiles present very similarly, we found the taste of this product to be a bit more mild then expected. At the very beginning we detected a touch of musky floral that quickly become changing a strong herbal note for the duration.


Highland’s White Lighting is a good product but the price makes us hesitate. Listed as having 24.6% THC content with a price tag of $49.95 for 3.5 grams, we found it delivered a strong high while maintaining a calm mental state that included a strong body buzz. The sad aspect is the price when comparing the quality of this product against market competition. Unfortunately we’d probably pass on this one in the future. In terms of this brand, we preferred Highland’s Gaelic Fire strain a tad more.

Highland's White Lighting is a good product but the price makes it really hard to recommend. It looks great and has a nice smell and flavour while delivering a strong high. However the price of the product compared to market competition makes us say take a pass on this one. We actually preferred Highland's Gaelic Fire product more anyway.

Since high school my friends and I have been recreational cannabis users so we decided to start Merry Jade after legalization in 2019. We review and photograph the different products then share them on this website. The rating system we use is called “SAFE” which stands for Smell, Appearance, Flavour and Experience.
