Hollands Hope (Dutch Hope) was one of the very first cannabis strains that was bred and selected specifically to mature successfully outdoors in the variable Dutch climate. It is a heavy-yielding plant with a powerful effect from what is a true quality indica-dominant strain.
Although bred for the Dutch summer weather, being highly mould-resistant, it will thrive elsewhere in warmer regions too. It can grow as high as 200 cm. tall and is a very hardy and reliable plant. It doesn't enjoy very high levels of nutrients and overfeeding will result in an abundance of leaf development at the cost of bud formation thus decreasing yields. Indoor flowering times are around 8 weeks while outdoor crops in the northern hemisphere will be ready to cut down towards the end of September or early October at the latest. Yields are good and range from 100 gr/plant up to 1000 gr/plant depending on local conditions. Buds are elongated and run to 50 cm. and can turn deep purple in colour at the end of florescence.
Hollands Hope has a rich, sweet smoke and a very heavy, sit-down-at-once kind of stone from its 14.5% THC. This effect will be popular with both those seeking to unwind after a hard day or, alternatively, medical users.

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.
