Orange Hill Special is a new orange Skunk strain which is the result of a breeding programme utilising Orange Bud and Californian Orange. Selection took place over 6 generations before the final choice was made to produce high THC buds with the right taste and high yields. It is 50% sativa, 50% indica.
Orange Hill Special is the heaviest-yielding of all the Orange strains. It grows to about 100 cm. tall, has a very bushy structure and plenty of side-branching with a plethora of budding sites. It is intended for indoor and greenhouse cultivation except for those growers in warmer climates such as the Mediterranean. Indoors flowering takes between 8 and 9 weeks. Outdoors plants will be ready for harvest during October (northern hemisphere) or April (southern). Orange Hill Special is a prodigious yielder with 450 gr/plant easily possible with care.
THC levels are very high at 21% and the orange buds have a delicious citrus flavour. Expect the familiar Skunk high with clarity and euphoria before settling down into a nice relaxed feeling.

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.
