CBD Charlotte's Angel is a new high CBD, low THC medicinal cannabis strain from Dutch Passion. This is an all-Dutch affair with the breeding parents selected from high-CBD Dutch Charlotte and the Amsterdam clone-only Red Angel CBD strain. Growers can expect bumper harvests from this sativa-dominant plant.
CBD Charlotte's Angel takes approximately 9 - 12 weeks to finish flowering but the extra wait is more than worthwhile as yields are very high with this strain. The finished buds exude a pleasant herbal smell with notes of pine and diesel. CBD levels can range between 10 - 16% with a likely average of 15%. THC content, in contrast, is very low indeed - less than 1% with an average of 0.7%. This means that patients, especially the very young, frail or old, can medicate without any risk of getting high, something that many people who can benefit from medical marijuana have concerns about.
Resin production is high making it a very solution for those wanting to produce high-CBD, low-THC concentrates. The effect is deeply satisfying on a physical level as it serves to relax the body promoting a feeling of well-being and calm while also having anti-anxiety properties. Dutch Passion have also discovered an unexpected bonus for heavy recreational smokers/vapers in that it really satisfies the "craving" for a smoke without getting the user high - something that isn't always desiired even by the most ardent enthusiast. In this manner it can help to reduce tolerance to cannabis and consequently consumption as well.

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.
