Dutch Treat is a very popular marijuana strain of uncertain origin.  Despite its name, it did not originate from Amsterdam.  It first appeared in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  It became very popular, as this Indica-dominant hybrid packed a strong dose of THC and has strong sedative properties.  Its use spread to parts of the US and Canada, then finally to Amsterdam where its popularity ballooned.  It became a staple in Dutch shops and cafes.  This popularity positioned this strain to spread even further into Canada and the US, and finally all around the world.

How to Grow Dutch Treat Cannabis Seeds or Cuttings

Growing weed from Dutch Treat cannabis seeds and cuttings is rated as comparatively easy.  This plant grows well in a drier, warmer climate.  Seeds for this strain can be obtained by mail from a vendor as per the laws of your jurisdiction.  A hydroponic set-up is recommended for Dutch Treat cannabis plants.  Hydroponics offers a higher yield, and an easier way to keep the environment regulated and free of pests.

Hydroponic growing means you will grow in water and minerals rather than soil.  Though counter-intuitive, this kind of set up has some advantages with increased yield being the most important.  In addition to the water you will use in the system, you will need an additional substrate to hold the water.  Clay pebbles are a popular and versatile choice.

Next, you will choose a nutrient mix to put in your solution to be fed to the plants and a hydroponic set up, which maybe an open or closed system, or an aeroponic system for advanced growers.  Indoors, you can expect plants to flower in eight to nine weeks.  Flowering may have to be induced with a dark/light schedule recommended by your seed vendor.  Yield can be about 12 ounces per meter squared.

Outside, you should choose an area with rich, organic soil, and a sunny, warm, and dry environment.  You may choose to enrich your soil with Flower Power fertilizer.  Plants will flower in the late days of September.
