The fact that Holland's Hope is tough, resilient, and easy to grow makes it a favourite among Weed Seed Shop customers. As the name suggests, this strain was bred in Holland for the hope of growing marijuana in the colder, harsher climates of Northern European countries. The wet Dutch summers can be harsh for other strains, but Sensi Seeds and the White Label Seed Company came together to create a strain that is just perfect for those climates. Since then, many other breeders have gone on to create their own versions of Holland's Hope. The seeds for Holland's Hope available at Weed Seed Shop are regular seeds, so they will grow into both male and female plants.
The genetics of this strain are Afghan and Skunk varieties, which would explain its extremely calming effects. Its indica content comes from its Afghan parent and produces an extremely relaxing and happy high. A wave of euphoria comes over the user at the beginning of the high with a cerebral buzz, and this is followed by a strong body stone. The flavour fills the smoker with earthy, sweet, and fruity aromas, and the taste resembles berries. This strain is perfect for relaxing after a stressful evening, or for a cold night by the fire.
Holland's Hope is an indica-dominant hybrid strain that is recommended for new growers. Outdoors, this strain will grow in cooler, wetter climates, and its performance in these climates is superior to many other strains. Its flowering time is also relatively short compared to other strains, flowering in just 45-55 days. For a plant that is easy to grow in a short period of time, Holland's Hope also promises quite a large yield. It is extremely resilient and fungus-proof, which is perfect for those cooler nights when condensation can occur.
Holland's Hope is a must for any of those growing marijuana in a less-than-desirable climate. The result is a large volume of high-quality buds and it is easy to grow for anybody.
