Compassion CBD is a medical cannabis strain which produces higher levels of CBD than is the case with the more common recreational varieties. Created by crossing a Nepalese strain with a hitherto un-named sativa, it produces CBD:THC in the ratio 1:1 up to 4:1 with the majority of plants producing approximately 8% of each of these important cannabinoids.
Compassion CBD is a medium-sized plant, with long and slender sativa leaves, which is perhaps better suited to either indoor or outdoor cultivation in higher latitudes but which will nevertheless thrive outdoors in warmer climes. Plants grown indoors will be ready for harvest after 9 - 11 weeks of flowering while outdoors northern hemisphere harvests will be ready during the month of November. Yields range from average to above average.
These plants produce plenty of resin and are very aromatic. The effects are primarily targeted at the medical user but it is also the case that recreational smokers and vapers have reported a strong, yet paranoia-free, body stone that is immensely relaxing but which is extremely functional. Therapeutically it is calming, soothing and offering pain relief to those who require an analgesic effect.

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.
