Dutch Passion, the world famous Amsterdam-based seedbank responsible for some of the best cannabis strains around, were pioneers of feminised cannabis seeds. Now with their latest strain, CBD Skunk Haze, they are placing themselves at the forefront of the developments in medicinal marijuana strains.
CBDSkunkHaze is the result of a collaboration between Dutch Passion and the CBD Crew – breeders who are dedicated to bringing you the finest CBD-rich cannabis genetics.

So what’s the deal with CBD and why does everyone keep going on about it? CBD – or Cannabidiol – is one of the many cannabinoids to be found in cannabis, each of which have a different effect on the body.
The most famous cannabinoid is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is responsible for the high when cannabis is ingested, imbibed or smoke inhaled. Plenty of studies have argued that CBD could well have important medicinal benefits – and suggest that it is mainly CBD which is responsible for the anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic qualities which many medical marijuana users talk about.
Traditionally the levels of THC found in cannabis strains have been far greater than the levels of CBD but the explosion of medical marijuana users across the world has resulted in more people clamouring for CBD rich strains. Ideally medical strains should contain a roughly equal percentage of THC and CBD. That is why Sativex, the cannabis-based prescription medicine, contains a high concentration of CBD, and a 1:1 ratio between the two cannabinoids.
CBD Skunk Haze contains 5% CBD and 5% THC making it an ideal medical marijuana strain. More than this it is based on some of Dutch Passion’s finest genetics – the High Times Cannabis Cup award winner, Haze/Skunk. This is what people have come to expect from Dutch Passion: quality, innovation and a drive to produce the very best cannabis seeds. There are already some great medicinal strains on the market, but Dutch Passion’s CBD Skunk Haze raises the bar even further.
