Dutch treat is 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.
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.
Despite its mysterious genetics, Dutch Treat has a clear “bag appeal’ that has made it attractive for innovative crossbreeding. One phenotype of the strain, Dutch Treat #5, has been used to create several other popular strains: combined with a Hawaiian sativa landrace, it’s yielded High Definition; combined with Super Silver Haze, it has produced Dutch Treat Haze; and when crossed with Electric Haze, it’s given us Electric Treat.
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.
This strain hits the user quickly, with a euphoric head rush. Rather than cerebral stimulation, Dutch Treat brings emotional uplift that lends itself to sociability and some talkativeness. The head high soon gives way to a wash of physical relaxation. Those same initial cerebral effects might skew towards laziness or sleepiness as the high progresses. Users may experience some lethargy and, with higher doses, intractable couchlock. Aside from Dutch Treat’s ability to ease tension, the strain’s small amounts of CBD have been said to provide relief from chronic pain, nausea, and insomnia, as well as from mental afflictions like anxiety, PTSD, and attention deficit disorders. Common negative side effects include red, dry eyes and persistent dry mouth. Dutch Treat’s slowly creeping body high makes it better suited to nighttime use. Consuming a small amount will go a long way — users have described the high as lasting up to two hours, pending individual tolerance.
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.
