The Netherlands holds the title of cannabis capital of Europe. Travellers from all over the world make the pilgrimage to sample the fine coffeeshop establishments of Amsterdam and elsewhere. Growers in the country are spoiled for choice when it comes to cannabis consumption, but which strains do they most enjoy cultivating? After distributing much of our genetic archive to the country, we’ve discovered the five most popular strains among growers in the Netherlands.

1. AMNESIA HAZE

No surprises here! The Netherlands has a close relationship with Amnesia Haze. After original Haze genetics entered the country decades ago, breeders worked their magic and created Amnesia Haze within Dutch borders. Popular in coffeeshops across Amsterdam, Dutch growers also have a soft spot for this powerful sativa hybrid. She packs a hefty THC value of 22% and provides delicious earthy and citrusy terpenes. Her energetic high shifts motivation up a gear and leaves users looking for something to accomplish. Medium levels of CBD help level out the high and prevent things from becoming overwhelming.

Amnesia Haze provides a significant yield both indoors and outdoors. Indoor specimens grow to between 80–140cm tall and produce 650–700g/m² after a flowering time of 10–11 weeks. Outdoor plants surge to a towering height of 210cm and produce a rewarding yield of up to 700g/plant. Prepare to harvest these tree-like plants in late October.

2. COOKIES GELATO

Cookies Gelato won over the Dutch primarily through taste and potency. This unbelievably aromatic variety treats users to notes of sweetness, candy, fruit, and a hint of earthiness. Limonene, humulene, and caryophyllene are the scrumptious terpenes that underpin these flavours. Cookies Gelato inherited these phytochemicals and her perfectly balanced indica/sativa genetics from parent strains Girl Scout Cookies and Gelato 33. Her dense, orange-green flowers pack an outrageous THC content of 28%, blasting users into the stratosphere for several hours at a time. Go easy with this one!

Cookies Gelato pumps out these incredibly powerful buds in large quantities. Indoor plants offer a return of 550–600g/m² after a flowering time of 8–9 weeks. Plants grown outdoors deliver 600–650g/plant during mid-October.

3. HULKBERRY

Growers in the Netherlands adore HulkBerry for her monstrous yields and mind-blowing THC levels. Truly a freak of nature, RQS breeders developed the strain to push the boundaries of THC production. Using parent strains OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel, they created a strain capable of generating 27% THC. HulkBerry produces compact flowers that simply look powerful! Shades of dark green and moody orange hint at what waits inside. You’ll feel her sativa-dominant high surge through your nervous system after a single hit. Take things slowly to fully enjoy the supercharged cerebral high.

Under good grow lights, Hulkberry’s productive canopy produces up to 450g/m² in less than 10 weeks. Plants grown outdoors will capitalise on the extra space and ascend to 200cm while putting out 650–700g/plant.

4. FAT BANANA

Fat Banana follows the theme of mouth-watering genetics, but the tropical strain carries more great traits than taste alone. Dutch growers love her high THC levels, brief flowering time, and soothing effect. RQS breeders stabilised the strain after teasing out the best traits from parent strains Banana and OG Kush. The result? THC levels of 25% and an indica high that boosts the mood and eviscerates tension. Fat Banana will chill you out while treating your taste buds to powerful hits of candied tropical fruit. Perfect for the evening, she’ll lull you off to sleep after a period of introspection and meditation.

Fat Banana doesn’t disappoint when it comes to yield. Plants raised in grow tents or spare rooms produce 350–400g/m² in as little as 7 weeks. Outdoor specimens offer a maximum of 500g/plant and are ready to sample by the tail-end of September.

5. PURPLE QUEEN

Purple Queen wins the award for most aesthetic strain on the list. The flowers on this stunning cultivar feature a light green core surrounded by a dark purple exterior and purple-pink fan leaves. Expert breeders at RQS captured this gorgeous phenotype by crossing Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani until they stabilised the trait. Good looks aside, Purple Queen also generates THC levels of 22%, divine tastes of citrus, and a euphoric yet relaxing indica high.

She produces an abundance of beautiful flowers too, both indoors and outdoors. Indoor plants churn out 450–500g/m² after 8–9 weeks of flowering. Outdoor plants favour a mild climate and boast impressive resistance against pests and pathogens. Expect to harvest 650–700g/plant during October.
