Don’t be fooled by the name, Black Dutch is no ordinary practice! This indica-dominant hybrid was first cultivated in the Pacific Northwest, but it’s now produced all across Amsterdam. Boasting THC levels between 15 and 30 percent, this strain packs a powerful punch that offers consumers physical and mental benefits. In 2012, it earned third place among California’s best sativas–talk about impressive! If you’re looking for something to leave you feeling blissful and euphoric while still remaining firmly rooted on Earth? Look no further than Black Dutch.
While the exact origin of Black Dutch is not definitively known, many believe it originated with Jordan of the Islands – an experienced cultivator from Vancouver Island. Jordan’s ingenious cannabis hybrid strains are available in dispensaries throughout Vancouver and have made quite a name for themselves. They continue to captivate consumers with their unique flavor profiles and strength that cannot be replicated elsewhere.
The genetic makeup of Black Dutch is a product of the hybridization between two well-known marijuana strains: Northern Lights and Haze. Northern Lights carries an earthy flavor profile and is predominantly indica, whereas Haze has thin buds but potent sativa effects. Unfortunately, without accurate laboratory analysis it’s near impossible to detect how this strain evolved naturally over time.
With its enigmatic genetics, many breeders have found Black Dutch’s alluring “bag appeal” irresistible for crossbreeding. One phenotype of this strain, the infamous Black Dutch #5, has been used to create some well-known hybrids such as High Definition and Black Dutch Haze. These two strains were created by crossing Electric Haze with Super Silver Haze – a combination that radiates undeniable potency!
Despite its indica dominance, Black Dutchs displays a more sativa-like appearance. Its buds are tapered and conical in shape rather than round, with light green foliage covered by wispy soft leaves beneath an abundant layer of trichomes that conceal golden and yellow pistils. For maximum enjoyment, it is advised to use a grinder when breaking apart Black Dutch buds. Though the aroma of this strain isn’t necessarily strong or potent, cured nuggets have an enchanting woodsy scent with hints of citrus and cedarwood. When inhaled, one will be pleasantly surprised by its surprisingly smooth flavor combined with herbs and pine notes.
Bhang’s packaged vape pen, featuring a potent 25% THC Black Dutch concentrate oil, is the perfect choice for those who wish to avoid dealing with equipment such as joints, pipes or vaporizers. Even upon vaping this strain delivers its signature herbal and earthy flavor and aroma.
The effects of Black Dutch are powerful – initiating an invigorating euphoric head rush before providing emotional uplift which further encourages social interaction while inducing talkativeness in users. As the haut continues, initial cerebral effects typically lead to drowsiness and, with higher dosages, couchlock. Besides its ability to decrease stress levels, this strain’s minute amounts of CDB are associated with lower pain or nausea sensations as well as mental health issues such as anxiety, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), and attention deficit disorders. Unfortunately, consuming it can come at a cost – red flaky eyelids and an ongoing dry mouth are some of the more common negative side effects reported by those who indulge in this particular strain. Black Dutch’s body high is an excellent way to wind down the day, as it gradually intensifies over time. One need not use too much – some have experienced a calming effect that last up to two hours depending on their sensitivity levels.
With its rapid growth, Black Dutch can quickly reach heights of up to five feet in only weeks. When grown indoors and trimmed regularly, the succulent will stay bushy and display a maximum height of five feet. However, when planted outside in an appropriate climate with warmth, it has potential to grow even taller! Staking may be necessary as branches become longer while they bloom. When cultivating outdoor, the ideal climate is 72 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal growth. Black Dutch yields higher than most other strains with each plant producing between 4 and 8 ounces of buds if grown in an optimally managed setting. When harvesting indoors, flowers will be ready around 6-8 weeks after planting; however, growers can expect a much earlier harvest when planted outdoors as it may mature late September!
If you’re looking for a strain that will help you de-stress after work, Black Dutch is the one to try. However, don’t expect it to help with your productivity or socializing since this variety of cannabis typically works better in the evening and night time. Additionally, its high CBD content makes it an ideal choice for those suffering from chronic pain and digestive issues. Growing this strain might be tricky due to its tendency to become tall if not properly managed – but trust us when we say that the end result will be well worth the effort!
