What is Dutch Treat?
“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. Buy Dutch Treat
Over the years, Dutch Treat has become an essential strain of the Amsterdam coffee shops. The dense, sticky buds have an intense smell of sweet fruits mixed with pine and eucalyptus trees. The cerebral high comes on quick and leaves consumers feeling uplifted and euphoric while reducing stress and relaxing the mind. Buy Dutch Treat
Popular staple strains Northern Lights (another heavy indica with an earthy flavor profile) and Haze (a bold sativa with similarly wispy buds) have been suggested as parents of Dutch Treat, but without advanced genetic testing, we can’t know for sure how Dutch Treat came to be. For consumers who would rather not handle implements like joints, pipes, or vaporizers, cannabis company Bhang produces a packaged vape pen loaded with 25% THC Dutch Treat concentrate oil; even when vaped, this strain retains its distinctly herbal and earthy taste and smell.
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.
