Also called the Hawaiian Dutch, this sativa-dominant cannabis plant (70% sativa/30% indica) produces cone-shaped buds with trichomes nearly as long as its orange pistils. True to its Hawaiian heritage, it smells heavily of tropical flowers and fruits, with a distinct splash of citrus peels and a dash of cane sugar. It won the 2014 Seattle Cannabis Cup award for Best Sativa.
THC levels, on average, range from 17-20% THC, though some lab results return weights as high as 27%.
Cannabis consumers will find a quick blast of energy from this strain. It’s best for elevating the mood, relieving stress, and generating a sense of creativity and contentment. Some patients find it good for treating mild pains and muscle spasticity.
Dry mouth, red eyes, and bouts of anxiety are common side effects with this strain.
Because of its sativa phenotype, growers should apply the screen of green technique when cultivating the Dutch Hawaiian.
