Strain Review: Arctic Sun by The Flying Dutchman Seeds


Arctic Sun is a very popular between marijuana users seed developed the Flying Dutchman. She is a stable cross of a Skunk No.1 and White Widow and combines the best qualities of these powerful cannabis strains. Arctic Sun is 60% sativa which, of course, influences her performance. Her plants are tall, have an elegant posture and strong brunching and can be cultivated both indoors and outdoors. The yield is great with a very strong, overwhelming effect.

The seeds of Flying Dutchman’s Arctic Sun are easy to grow, their germination rate is said to be incredible 90%-95%. The seedlings look strong and healthy, though experienced cannabis growers recommend to make sure the ventilation works properly – they are mold’s favorite. To cultivated these seeds can be just fun, they develop very quickly, taking only 3 weeks of vegetation.

Being mostly sativa, plants of Arctic Sun like stretching and may need a bit of training to support her heavy, very resinous colas. After an extremely short for a sativa flowering (8-10 weeks), flowers turns into huge buds, very dense and crystal laden, may be a bit too leafy for some cannabis growers’ eyes. But nobody complains, the white cover appearing on the leaves almost instantly gives her such a great appeal. When manicure before drying, why not try to gently roll these leafy buds between palms to create more compact buds when dry; then you won’t need to cut off many leaves when manicure.

This cannabis variety is a great yielder, she can produce up to 350 gr.of a quality marijuana per plant when grown outdoors, and the same amount but per m2 indoors. A usual 12/12 light cycle works perfectly. Dutch cannabis farmers start an outdoor harvest in October. Despite of the dominant Skunk genes, Arctic Sun has a very pleasant, slightly bitter smell of White Widow. The dried marijuana remains this fresh, a bit musky, definitely a citrus aroma with sickly undertones. She has a very long shelf life; the longer you store her, the better she smells.

You know you are onto a winner as soon as you light up; the smoke just flows down your throat with no trouble at all, no tickling or catching of the breath. The effect is both physical and cerebral, a bit delayed. You don?t seem to feel it straight away, Arctic Sun is a thinker, uplifting and thought provoking.
