MARKET LEADER WITH THIRTY YEARS’ EXPERIENCE IN THE CANNABIS SECTOR ENTERS MARKET
DUTCH PASSION SEED COMPANY: CANADA, CHECK OUR PRODUCT LINE
Amsterdam, January 2019 – Cannabis is increasingly seen as a great, safe alternative for alcohol and tobacco and the sector is enjoying incredible growth. Amsterdam-based Dutch Passion Seed Company, a leading cannabis market force, is now entering the Canadian market with their range of highly developed cannabis products and services. This Dutch company has been at the forefront of innovation in the production and cross-breeding of high-quality cannabis. Dutch Passion has seen continued growth since the 1980’s when things started with a seed bank and has developed to the all-round cannabis company it is today.
Trendsetter in cannabis
Many governments across the world have reached the conclusion that cannabis has useful applications while being a low risk substance. The discovery of legal constituents, such as cannabidiol (CBD), has also helped to normalize the use of cannabis and cannabis light (no THC, high in CBD). The trend among the younger generation towards natural and safe substances as an alternative to chemical medicine and alcohol is also a factor in the growing acceptance of cannabis and cannabis products. Dutch Passion Seed Company – incorporated 1987 – has been a cannabis trendsetter since its early hippie days in 1972. It has been at the forefront of several innovations – from the development of feminized seeds in the 1990s to the introduction of auto-flowering varieties, rich in cannabinoids other than THC.
Plant emerges from the shadows
Eric Siereveld, CEO of Dutch Passion Seed Company, on the latest developments: “In the last thirty years, we have primarily focused on supplying seeds to small-scale domestic growers, but now everything is changing. Countries across the world are legalizing cannabis, paving the way for a completely new industry. This is the moment we’ve been waiting for all these years. We are truly delighted to see the plant emerge from the shadows. After concentrating for so long on the sale of our genetically optimized seeds, we can now finally focus on the end product and ensure that it meets both our high standards and the specific demands from new large scale customers. Canadian consumers can now enjoy cannabis without growing it themselves as it becomes available through our network of selected distributors.
International production and distribution
In Canada, Dutch Passion appointed with WeedMe for the production and distribution of Dutch Passion cannabis. Dutch Passion provides support in cultivation and inspects the final product, ensuring that the Canadian market is provided with top-quality cannabis. Meanwhile, in Italy, local partner LegalWeed helps select the best growers to produce high-quality cannabis light (without THC, comparable to alcohol-free beer). Again, Dutch Passion applies its knowledge and experience to support the entire process. Dutch Passion cannabis is available in Canada and Italy in jars of 3 and 5 grams, specially designed to keep out UV. Over the course of the year, more varieties will be added to the range, depending on market demand.
