yeah, i guess what im saying is, white strains look better than they are. it's not that they aren't potent as such, just that with the longer flowering times and proportionally more of the wrong kind of trich, its wroth growing something else instead.
only white strain i have grown is white russian, and given both the parents ( ak47 and WW ) are meant to be really potent, i was pretty dissappointed with the WRus, in all honesty. it wasn't bad smoke, but i sure don't rate it.
best way for you to see what i mean, is to take some of your white buds into some natural light, and look for some of the trichs to shine like little diamonds (just with the naked eye). these are the ones that actually have goodness, so the more sparkly your bud, the more potent it should be (provided it was havrevted at peak thc production, ideal conditions, etc etc) . generally you'll find that white buds don't sparkle much at all, despite the frosty coat.
It's not that they don't have the good stuff, its just proportionally speaking you're wasting a lot of energy drowing the wrong kinda trichs.
each to their own, every plant and grower is different. with the pepperskunk i grow, i have a friend growing the same buds, his yields kick my ass, but mine taste better and are more potent. clones from same mothers, etc. and when you find a plant that you like, that grows well for you, and gets you plenty baked, then hang onto it with all youve got, and who cares what strain it is and what % of good trichs its got.
well, that was a rant. Probably a bit incoherent as well, sorry bout that, but im a bit under the weather atm
