Passion #1 is an outdoor strain that was originally developed in California in the 1970s and which found its way to Holland some time during the 1980s. It is an indica cannabis strain that is not only stable but also very easy to cultivate even for first time growers.
Passion #1 can be grown very successfully outdoors and in greenhouses. It also does well indoors but growers will need a lot of space for a successful grow. If planted early in the season it can reach a height of 3.5 meters tall but if planted later in the season 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 says much about its staying power and continuing popularity; outdoors in the higher latitudes of regions such as northern Europe growers come back year after year for it.
It is a plant with good to very good yields varying between 250 gr/plant for smaller plants right up to 750 gr/plant for the larger specimens. Due to its fast flowering time plants should be fully mature during September in northern latitudes. When grown indoors the flowering time is a lightening quick 6 weeks! 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 has a very soft and gentle quality with a fresh citrus note and the effect from its measured 18.6% THC is fast-acting with an uplifting, exhilarating high which becomes stronger and heavier the more is smoked. This is a very pleasurable marijuana plant that is highly recommended 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.
