Information about Dutch Queen:
Suffice to say, using Dutch Queen is like drinking a cup of brewed happiness in the morning – it starts the day right. This Washington native invigorates users and heightens their senses with the energizing aroma of citric fruits. Not only that, its stimulating head high and mild body buzz encourage productivity as well as positivity.
The calculated allusion to coffee serves to introduce users to Dutch Treat, the queen’s parent. This famed bud has been around long enough to become a staple around coffee shops in Amsterdam. Dutch users toke the Indica-dominant strain for its social effects. As such, many mingle and share ideas without restraint.
Meanwhile, Dutch Queen’s royal title was passed on to it by its mother Space Queen. This celestial bud leans toward the Sativa side and is quite powerful. Averaging around 22%, its capacity to induce an intense cerebral buzz is high. Besides its potency, it attracts users through its wonderful fruity aroma.
In genetically engineering both powerhouses, Buddy Boy Farms successfully created a hybrid it could market to casual users and beginners. Dutch Queen retains the euphoric effects of its parents but is mellow. It neither glues users to their couches or cause paranoia. Yet, it has a buildable potency, allowing it to cater to more experienced users.

There is a reason why Dutch Queen is best used while the sun is up. Its classic Sativa psychedelic sends an energizing rush to the brain. Its effects are instantaneous, with users feeling uplifted in only a few tokes. A tingling sensation melts away all doubt. Taking over its place is a sense of wellness that encourages positivity and happiness.
As users build its potency, the euphoria is channeled into the body. The creeper takes over and sends a soothing buzz to ease all tension in the muscles and the limbs. The once exhausted and demotivated user is mentally and physically reinvigorated. Overconsuming the strain, however, can turn the mild buzz into a full-blown couch-lock, where users are stuck with their thoughts and unable to move.
Dutch Queen is a very pungent strain that can easily fill a small room with the energizing fragrance of berries and oranges. Broken up, the buds release an earthy pine that has sweet undertones reminiscent of vanilla. It is best kept in an air-tight container because of its strong aroma. But, those who enjoy its scent can keep it in an open jar.
Toking Dutch Queen brings out the fullness of its citric flavors. At the first hit, tangy lemons and sweet oranges wash over the mouth. With each toke, a pleasing wood appears to complement the fruitiness. As the smoke is blown out, the refreshing aftertaste of pine remains in the palate.
Nothing in this world is perfect, including this royal strain. Like others, it comes with a few side effects such as headaches and dehydration. The former is a result of the strain’s potent psychedelic abruptly slamming the body. It is common among beginners and people with low tolerance to THC. Meanwhile, the latter is bound to happen regardless of one’s experience and the bud being toked. In Dutch Queen’s case, it dries the mouth and the eyes.
CBD is not the only chemical compound that gives strains like Dutch Queen its medical value. Its other cannabinoids provide relief to ailing users going through a series of mental and physical discomfort.
The Dutch Queen’s uplifting high reminds users of the good in life such as supportive family, friends, and peers. If not, it repairs broken self-esteem and helps build confidence. As such, it can be of great comfort to those going through depressive moods.
Its stimulating aftereffect is also great for relieving stress and alleviating fatigue, mental or physical. The jolt of energy it sends to the brain sends a signal to the rest of the body that it is now time to rest. A soothing sensation frees the muscles of spasms and reduces pressure in the eyes. It revitalizes the user and readies them for the day’s hurdles.
Dutch Queen is an elusive strain that is rarely found in seedbanks outside Washington. Acquiring it is a little tricky but is worth all the effort. Not only will the herb reward users with an energizing high, it also gifts growers with an abundant yield of compact nugs.
In appearance, the buds are interesting. They are stretched out and quite long. At first glance, they seem to be thin but placing it in one’s hand reveals their density. Complementing its yellow to moss green hue are orange pistils that seem to feather at the end. As a result of its warm colors, the trichome blanketing the nugs appear golden.
Like other potent Sativa-dominant strains, Dutch Queen need height and odor control measures. Keeping the plant short will ensure all its nutrients supplement the growing of the bud. Meanwhile, installing carbon filters will keep nosy neighbors from prying.
With that said, discreet home growers can expect their fragrant plant to yield up to 14 ounces of buds per square meter once the 8-week flowering period is finished.
Outdoors, each Dutch Queen plant produces more than 14 ounces of buds. Its flowering period usually lasts up to the last week of September. But, in rare cases, it extends to the first week of October.
