Mazar is, according to Dutch Passion, one of their strongest and best strains. It originated in the 1980s as an Afghan/Skunk cross and was improved in 1997. It is an indica-dominant plant and one of their all-time best-sellers.
Mazar grows squat with a Christmas tree shape that produces plenty of side-branches giving many bud sites. It is a hardy plant with great hybrid vigour and is therefore a good choice for new growers as it is difficult to mess up. Indoors flowering takes 8.5 weeks or so to produce very large crops. Such is the size of the buds, and with the amount of resin they contain, that the plant will need supporting if the branches are nor to snap. Unlike Master Kush this strain does exude extremely strong odours and if growing near neighbours it is strongly recommended to install carbon-filtering.
At harvest the buds are very sticky indeed and highly aromatic with sweet, earthy tones complemented by pine and citrus and tasting very like Afghan hashish. The production of THC is 19.5% making the effect really potent, physically powerful yet also quite relaxing. Good for numbing both mind and body.

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.
