Dutch Treat Haze Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Boulder Medical Marijuana Center (BMMC)

Grade: A

Type: Sativa-dominant hybrid

Lineage: Dutch Treat x Haze

Price: $50/8th

Appearance: (9.25/10)  This was one of the rare samples that made it through a very long flowering period with no visible flaws — no tiny seeds, no hermie bananas, no trim issues, no harvest timing complaints — as hard as we tried, there was really nothing we could find to knock this one down a peg.  The nug structure is stout and compact, with a well-cured feel to it and the typical Colorado dryness level, where it breaks apart easily but doesn’t crumble into dust.  The trichome coverage on this strain is rather above-average, and the perfect golden-amber coloration on most of them shows that this was pulled at just the right time for our tastes.

Aroma: (8/10)  This one was apparently a personal preference, as one reviewer called it among his favorite Haze strain smells (along with the likely-unbeatable Tangerine Haze), while others were less impressed.  The pre-grind smell is a slightly sour, musky, spicy scent that was not exactly appealing, but hinted at potency.  Post-grind though, it changed character almost completely, turning strongly floral with a wonderful sweetness described as “honey and cinnamon”.  It’s never a super-pungent aroma, but it’s almost more attractive for that reason…

Taste: (7/10)  Again, there was a difference of opinion here, with the reviewer who loves the smell again loving the lightly sweet, floral Haze flavor this strain offered while others were left wanting for more pungency.  So if you’re a patient who appreciates the subtle flavors, this is one that you’ll enjoy.  However, the subtle flavor that existed on the first hit seemed to endure throughout the session, even on the final exhale, which is always nice. The smoke was expansive but fairly smooth on the throat, with only some coughing experienced.  The final ash was a mix of light gray and white, showing a quality flush.

Effects: Coming on quickly (less than 5 minutes after starting), we were immediately filled with a strange internal energy that had our chest fluttering and our skin and limbs buzzing heavily.  There was a definite uptick in anxiousness, with several of the staff getting a feeling like they were expecting something to happen or as if they were getting ready for something, though nothing was really happening — this one could definitely cause some anxiety issues in users who are prone to it.  Constantly shifting mental focus made it somewhat difficult to stick with conversations, making this more of an “alone time” Sativa than a social one.  The eye and forehead pressure seemed to keep up forever, barely starting to release into the start of hour #2.  The energetic (some would say “tense”) mindstate and body feeling subsided around the same time, taking on more of the Indica side of the family, seeming like the calm after an enjoyable storm.

Duration: Very long, 3+ hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Major energy boost, strong ocular effects, cycling head pressure, and some relaxation late.

Overall: While our review staff didn’t find a ton of medical benefit for their particular ailments and thought that this strain may serve to rile up anxiety and possibly even muscle tension early, we couldn’t help but to love this strain regardless.  The sheer power of the start along with the medicinal-level and overall duration reaching the upper rungs of MMJ left us impressed.  The bag appeal areas were somewhat contentious, but the reviewer with macro-level viewing capabilities appreciated it the most, showing that the details were all perfectly in place.  With what seems to be a flawless grow, this strain may be at its maximum potential, and it’s surely one that Sativa-lovers should give a try.  This is a very strong and pure-feeling Haze experience that is really only for experienced users and those who can handle the more aggressive side of the effects spectrum.

    I love this Haze, totally up with the top favorites on my list, along with Tangerine of course. Such a distinct flavor and aroma that I can’t get enough! Got some from a fresh batch a coupla days ago and it smell even more pungent and fuelly smellin’, best batch yet! Love to get baked early on this one, makes my day run much smoother. The bubble they make from this strain is a rocker too!

    LOVE this strain. Being an experienced user, it’s hard to find something that fires all of my receptors but this one sure does. Highly recommended!

    Boulder MMC does a fine job with it’s breeding, growing and harvesting – top shelf in every aspect. They are knowledgeable and thorough which results in a positive interaction with them. They are worth the drive from Denver!

    I would say this strain is one of the best and tastiest sativas out there right now and EVERYONE should make the trip over to pick it up. The good news is this strain is literally in all the time with each batch equally as dank or danker than the last. Hopefully this strain gains more recognition not only here in Boulder CO but all across the world…

    Full spectrum labs seems incorrect. I have smoked strains claimed to be at 18% THC and this strain seems to reach into the low to mid 20s percent wise. No doubt about the potency here.
