Henk van Dalen's heritage
Aside from being the founding father of Dutch Passion, Henk van Dalen’s greatest contribution to the self-sufficient home grower was the creation of feminized cannabis seeds in the 1990’s. Here’s to acknowledge his work, achievements and ever-lasting legacy.
The QUEST FOR BEANS
Dutch Passion seed company was established formally in Amsterdam in 1987, but the real beginnings date back to 1972 when Dutch Passion founder, Henk van Dalen, began growing cannabis in Holland for his own needs. Henk had the benefit of studying Biology for 6 years at Amsterdam University from 1970 – 1976.
During this time, Henk also took classes in Pharmacology and studied the effects of psychedelics and other drugs. Dutch Passion’s founder complemented his formal academic training with extensive reading and studying and soon became one of the first recognized cannabis breeders.
Henk used seeds from imported Thai and Nigerian cannabis, and started crossing these with other varieties he came across from a growing network of contacts. His reputation grew steadily, and it was quickly apparent that the quality of weed produced from Henk’s seeds was much better than the weed being imported into Holland from Asian, Africa and any other countries.
By the early 80’s Henk was offering seeds to other growers on a small scale. Passion #1 (known as Amstel Gold in those days) was measured at 18% THC, it was regarded as on a par with the best cannabis of the time, the infamous Chitral from the Pakistani Himalayas.
Dutch Homegrown WEED
This was an important time in the history of cannabis. People were seeing that the best quality pot no longer had to be imported. The early work done by Henk, and breeders like him, showed that with the right seeds a person could easily produce their own marijuana which would be as good, even better, than cannabis imported from the traditional cannabis-producing countries. The ‘seeds had been sown’ and the start of the home-grown pot movement began to grow.
Henk continued his work. He opened a Dutch Coffeeshop named “Homegrown Fantasy” in 1988. This coffeeshop was the first in the Netherlands (therefore the first in the world) to only sell cannabis products grown and processed locally.
Henk’s reputation grew further when he won the High Times coffeeshop trophy for his original Haze/Skunk. In those early days there wasn’t a ‘seedbank’ trophy so the coffeeshops were involved in bringing the work of seed companies into public view.
YOUR PASSION, OUR PASSION
Eventually it was clear to Henk that recreational and medical marijuana users would, and could, routinely grow their own cannabis from seed. Nowadays growing your own cannabis is increasingly the norm, but in the 1980’s it was radical thinking to believe that home-grown pot would be widespread.
Taking everything that Henk knew about the business of cannabis breeding he created Dutch Passion Seed Company in 1987. His philosophy was to maintain a passion to offer the best cannabis seeds possible to his customers and that philosophy remains at the heart of Dutch Passion today.
