BUY DUTCH TREAT
“Buy Dutch treat” — the common practice of splitting a bill after a date — isn’t nearly as fun as the cannabis strain of the same name. Dutch Treat (also known as Dutch Crunch) is an indica-heavy hybrid that was originally cultivated in the Pacific Northwest but is now very popular in Amsterdam. With minimal CBD around 1% and THC between 15% and 30%, this is a potent strain that offers some physical benefits alongside its psychoactivity. A good option for nighttime socializing or introspection, Dutch Treat’s potency earned it 3rd Best Sativa in the 2012 Southern California Cannabis Cup.
Despite its indica dominance, Dutch Treats’ buds are more sativa in appearance: they’re tapered and conical rather than round, and their leaves are more wispy and soft than densely packed. The leaves themselves are a dark green with golden and yellow pistils underneath a thick coating of trichomes. Because of their high resin content and loose bud structure, buds of Dutch Treat may prove difficult to break apart for a pipe or a joint if you’re not using a grinder. The aroma of this strain, while pleasant, isn’t particularly memorable or pungent. Cured buds have a muted woodsy smell of cedar and pine accented by some nonspecific citrus sweetness. The smoke is surprisingly smooth and has the taste of herbs and more pine.
Dutch Treat is a good strain for relaxing, but not necessarily for being productive or socializing — its indica leanings qualify this as an evening to nighttime strain. Dutch Treat’s CBD content also makes it beneficial for medicating conditions involving chronic pain and digestion. Because of its tendency to grow tall if not properly managed, plants of this strain may prove difficult to cultivate for a novice grower.
