Dutch Passion Seed Company history timeline

 Henk van Dalen’s dream 

1970's: Henk van Dalen’s dream 1970's: Henk van Dalen’s dream 

In the 1970’s, Henk van Dalen, Dutch Passion’s founder, began collecting and growing the cannabis seeds which arrived from all corners of the world in weed shipments that were sold in Dutch coffee shops. His biology training at Amsterdam University sparked an interest. With enough effort (and science), Henk could create new strains with higher quality levels than the parent strains. He collected and bred the best cannabis genetics. As his reputation developed, the demand for his genetics and marijuana seeds grew.

 Officially established in Amsterdam

Interest in fine-quality marijuana seeds continued to grow and Henk formally established Dutch Passion in 1987. Demand increased as cannabis cultivation became more widespread. The many thousands of cannabis seeds collected from early (often heavily seeded) coffeeshop weed as well as gene-hunting trips proved priceless in later decades. Dutch Passion was one of just a handful of early cannabis seed pioneers.

 Feminized cannabis seeds invention

Many said it was impossible. But in 1997 Henk van Dalen created the world’s first feminized cannabis seeds. His scientific training indicated that if certain fruit/vegetable crops could be offered in feminized seed form then it could also be theoretically possible with cannabis. After a long research-project the first feminized cannabis seeds were released to a surprised but grateful cannabis community.

 Premium autoflower seeds pioneers

In the early 2000’s, Dutch Passion worked hand-in-hand with the Joint Doctor, who was largely credited with the original discovery of autoflowers. Early results were not ground-breaking - yields and potency were medium at best. But after many years of skilled breeding autoflower strains evolved from their medium-quality first generation results into the powerhouse 25%+ THC autoflower strains seen today.

 First stable CBD-rich cannabis seeds

CBD initially had very limited public/medical interest. But Dutch Passion partnered with the ‘CBD Crew’ to deliver the world’s first stable CBD-rich cannabis seeds. As interest in CBD grew, sales of CBD rich seeds also increased. Behind the scenes, the interest in CBD encouraged Dutch Passion to screen many of their original gene bank legacy strains for those rich in other unusual cannabinoids. 

 First THCV/CBG strains in the world

Taking advantage of their extensive archive of original genetics, as well as their expert breeding team, Dutch Passion were thrilled with another first in 2020. This time it was the release of the first stable strains rich in THCV and CBG. Both cannabinoids are of increasing interest to the medical community. Dutch Passion are immensely proud to be one of the few teams with the necessary breeding skills and genetic heritage to be able to offer such strains.
