Introducing the Auto version of Orange Bud, the latest auto-flowering cannabis strain from Dutch Passion. This is a sativa-dominant plant which lacks nothing of its photo-period namesake. Created by DP's auto breeding expert Orange Bud Auto produces very big harvests of top quality buds.
The original Orange Bud mother was fertilised by pollen from an Auto Daiquiri Lime and a selection made from a large number of plants based on THC levels, yield and the desired aroma, taste and effect. These plants were then further selectively bred over another 12 generations to realise the breeder's goal - an auto-flowering version of Orange Bud that wanted for nothing in terms of its quality indicators. This strain is the result of the most comprehensive auto breeding programme ever undertaken by Dutch Passion.
Growers will be able to make large harvests of superb buds in just 10-11 weeks from seed. The results are every bit as good as the original which fact is underlined by Dutch Passion's testers not being able to distinguish betweem the two strains in blind tests!
About Dutch Passion
"You don't buy that many seeds a year, it's one area of your life where compromise isn't necessary so choose a seed bank with a long tradition and proven record" - Dutch Passion
In the 1970’s, Dutch Passion’s founder, Henk van Dalen, began collecting and breeding with cannabis seeds which he found in the early Dutch cannabis imports arriving from all over the world. He realised that it was possible to grow your own cannabis and often it was far superior to the often poor-quality, heavily seeded, imported product.
Some of his best varieties were selectively crossed and bred and he soom realised that many people would prefer to grow their own cannabis from seed rather than buy it on the streets.
In 1987, the Dutch Passion Seed Company was formally established. 10 years later, they became the first seed bank to learn how to make feminized seeds, something that many people at the time said was impossible with cannabis. Ever since then, Dutch Passion have been busy trying to create the best cannabis seeds and trying to keep up with customer interest in other varieties of seeds such as autoflowering and CBD-rich etc.
Dutch Passion grow from their own gene bank of original genetics collected decades ago, These days, many newer seed banks simply regurgitate existing varieties/genetics and put a new name on them. Dutch Passion are both proud and fortunate to have their own legendary varieties from the 1980’s and plenty of old original seeds to use for future projects.
Crowned Best Seed bank at Spannabis 2014, Dutch Passion are well known for their sophistication and quality. The Dutch Passion breeders concern themselves with creating and preserving quality, and their varieties have won many prizes in cannabis cup competitions.
