Dutch Treat, a classic strain that’s one of the most popular in the U.S. and across the Amsterdam coffee shop scene, is a distinct and much-loved indica-dominant hybrid.
Dutch Treat has earned its vaunted reputation by continuing to be one of the most consistent strains on the market. It’s distinctly sweet and piney taste and flavor is thoroughly enjoyable. The high is pleasant and uplifting. It packs a small punch that’s stronger than many sativas, but far less so than a lot of heavy indicas. This makes it a perfect late-night, relaxation type of strain, while also being one you can use during the day without fearing much lethargy.
Not much is known about the true origin of Dutch Treat, though many believe it originated in the Pacific Northwest (particularly Vancouver Island) before making its way to Amsterdam.
Smell and taste:
- Sweet, almost like slightly burnt sugar
- Strong pine smell
- Increased appetite
At the time of publication Dutch Treat has 702 reviews on Leafly with an average score of 4.3 out of 5.
Highlighted quote (from one of the Leafly reviews):
“This heavy cerebral high is perfect for a night time adventure or a long hibernation in a comfortable bed. With earthy, piney, and lemony tones, the exhales comes off very sweet, not a bit of smokeyness, and left my mouth watering and wanting more.
[T]he body and mind high… put me in the perfect mood for a session of music and headphones. This is the best tasting strain I’ve ever had, it did quite literally make my mouth water. Highly recommend this to new and old stoners alike.
