Passion #1 is an outdoor strain that was developed in California in the 1970s and which found its way to Holland in the 1980s. It is an indica cannabis variety that is stable and very easy to grow.
Passion #1 can be grown very successfully outdoors and in greenhouses. If planted early in the season it can reach a height of 3.5 meters tall but if planted later 2 meters is a good average height for this strain. The fact that it has been a feature of the Dutch Passion range for so long is testament to its staying power; outdoors in higher latitudes growers come back year after year for it.
Yields are good and vary between 250 gr/plant for smaller plants right up to as much as 750 gr/plant for the larger specimens. Due to its fast flowering time plants should be fully mature during September in northern latitudes. Buds are long and compact and drip with resin; so much so that it is advised by Dutch Passion to only trim the larger shade leaves as the smaller ones are covered in THC-bearing crystals which are good to make extracts with. The taste is very soft and gentle with a fresh citrus note and the effect form its measured 18.6% THC is fast-acting with an uplifting, exhilarating high which becomes stronger and heavier the more is smoked. Highly pleasurable and commendable marijuana plant for outdoor cultivation.
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.
