Dutch Treat has been one of the mythical strains of marijuana for most of my adult life.  This is a strain that started out in Amsterdam coffee shops, and it's still one of the most widely grown strains that I know of among amateur and enthusiast growers.

This Dutch Treat came to me as a processor's sample, and so it doesn't have quite the information that a retail-sales batch would have.  This is my first marijuana given to me because of my role as a bud-tender.  I was able to see lab testing reports however - which are immensely more complete and complex than you would think - and the numbers add up.  This is legitimately some 29% TTL THC content pot.

Frankly, I did not treat this delicious flower with the respect it really deserved.  I smoked this as some 'go to bed' medicine at the end of a long day on my feet, doing sales consultancy for the first time in 6 years.  Because I was working with weed, I was getting stoned all day.  I vaped hash, I smoked joints, I smoked bowls, I hit an MFLB a few times for flavor tasting, and along with it all I drank about a gallon of coffee. 

So I ground this sample nug up, barely let it's flavor hit me, and jammed on three fast bowls in a row before lying down to listen to music with my wife before sleep.

The herb had a slightly bitter, slightly chemical/diesel smell - the inside of the bag has the faintest trace of it under a fresh herb smell.  The taste was very earthy, slightly herby but not particularly strong.  The smoke itself was much more mellow than I expected based on appearance, smell, texture, strain and the density of smoke.  

As for effect, I was asleep before the second track of Rammstein's Liebe ist fΓΌr Alle Da.  I woke up feeling incredibly rested, deep muscle aches were relaxed and my knees felt great.  Considering I spent the whole day on my feet - something I don't often do - I call that some potent medicine.
