Amsterdam meets Maui in Hawaiian Dutch, a sativa-dominant hybrid cross of Hawaiian, a favorite sativa, and Dutch Treat, a famed indica from Holland. This strain, also known as Dutch Hawaiian, has a sativa/indica ratio of at least 70:30, likely much higher. It placed second at the 2014 Seattle Cannabis Cup in the category of Best U.S. Sativa.
The sativa-heavy genes make for a creative cerebral high, with a shot of energy, a dose of euphoria, and a boost of happiness. It’s a great way to treat depression, anxiety, physical and mental fatigue, and everyday stress. THC levels range from 17 to 20% in available tests, so Hawaiian Dutch is definitely a potent medical selection.
CBD levels, on the other hand, are much too low to recommend this strain as a medication for seizures or other conditions whose symptoms respond to CBD. This strain produces a flavor and aroma more reminiscent of its Dutch ancestry than its Hawaii parentage: citrusy, earthy, and floral. The most common side effects are cottonmouth and red eyes, while paranoia and anxiety are less likely. This regional strain sells almost exclusively in its home state, Washington.
