Dutch Treat: Background 

Dutch Treat is an OG so it can be tricky to pinpoint its exact origins. However, it’s believed to be a European strain made from a cross between Northern Lights and Haze. Dutch Treat cannabis flowers take on a classic weed appearance with light green and yellow flowers that contrast beautifully with the dark green water leaves. Each spade-shaped nug is covered with a veneer of crystalline trichomes that give it a frosted appearance alongside sandy orange pistils.

Dutch Treat is a cross between a heavy indica and a strong sativa, giving it a good mix of effects. However, Dutch Treat weed tends to be a little more on the energizing and cerebral side, common from sativa strains. It offers an earthy, piney, and sweet scent alongside sweet, woody, and fruity flavors that are sure to please even the finnickiest of pallets. Best of all, it checks in between a whopping 19-24% THC, making it a great choice for medical patients or for the average rec user looking for a boost during the day.

Dutch Treat Scents Flavors and Effects 

The Dutch Treat weed strain boasts unique scents and flavors. While growing, Dutch Treat marijuana plants offer up a very fresh and piney aroma along with a blueberry-tinged fruitiness. As the flowers dry, earthier aromas take center stage and somewhat mask the piney blueberry notes beloved of the strain. However, all three scents truly shine when the flowers are ground up in a grinder. The earthiness is pungent, but not dank, and the blueberry aroma smells sweet and delicate along with sharper notes of pine needles.

Dutch Treat really shines in the flavor department, though. The first impression is that of something super sweet and refreshing, with notes of sweet berries and a sharp, piney earthiness. The smoke itself is notably woody and earthy, giving it a really smooth mouthfeel that is favored by those who don’t like to cough a bunch when they partake. However, the end of the smoke and the following exhale is the real treat. Exhaling Dutch Treat brings forth a plethora of delicious, fruity flavors reminiscent of sweet blueberries and other sweet fruits, like lychees and kiwi. All of that mingles with a smooth woody and piney finish, making for one of the most pleasant flavor profiles in all of weeddom.
