Highlife cannabis cup 2021 XXL harvest
Dutch Passion were proud winners of no less than 5 cannabis cups at the 2021 Highlife Cannabis Cup. That’s the best-ever result and proof that the Dutch Passion focus on elite high THC genetics and professional breeding by qualified geneticists is the best way to produce cannabis cup winning cannabis seeds.
The Highlife Cup is Europe’s longest running cannabis cup competition. It began in 1994 and has taken place each summer since, organised by the Soft Secrets magazine team. What makes this cannabis cup so special and enduring is that the samples are blind tested by judges over a 2 month period. This allows a thorough and impartial assessment, and it makes any Highlife cannabis cup award seem extra special.
Highlife cannabis cup 2021 results
The Highlife cannabis cup features several different categories for indoor and outdoor grown cannabis. There are also categories for best indica, best sativa, best autoflower as well as cannabis cup awards for the best extracts, concentrates and hash selections.
As the oldest European cannabis cup competition, it is also the most prestigious and attracts the best cannabis seed companies. You can expect to see the better seed banks represented alongside smaller boutique breeders who can sometimes surprise with some superb genetics.
For companies such as Dutch Passion, a Highlife Cannabis cup is a chance to benchmark the latest and greatest cannabis genetics against the best from other cannabis seed companies. Competition and rivalry for the best strains is friendly but also serious.
In the case of Dutch Passion’s 2021 Highlife cannabis cup winners, the strains took many years to perfect and represent some of the finest breeding achievements from some exceptionally skilled geneticists.
Autoflower category: Auto Cinderella Jack (1st prize)
Auto Cinderella Jack was bred purely based on the THC content of the specially selected parent strains. After many generations of potency-targeted breeding, Dutch Passion found an insane THC level of 25.9%, measured by an independent laboratory.
Until Auto Skywalker Haze just surpassed that with a reading of 26.2% THC, Auto Cinderella Jack had the highest THC levels ever seen on an autoflower strain. It’s no surprise that Auto Cinderella Jack won 1st Prize in the Autoflower category.
The Highlife Cup judges loved the exceptional potency levels on Auto Cinderella Jack. They also adored the blissfully pleasurable feel-good effects which Auto Cinderella Jack is famous for.

Skunk category: The Ultimate (1st prize)
The Ultimate is a photoperiod feminised strain and quite possibly the heaviest yielding strain in the Dutch Passion cannabis seed collection. With very high THC levels, The Ultimate is unusual for combining seriously heavy yields without any hint of compromising quality.
She takes around 9 weeks in bloom, even rookie growers will be amazed at the level of bud and resin production. Expert growers can beat their personal harvest records with these cannabis cup winning genetics.
The Highlife Cup judges loved the anti-anxiety effects and the rich, delicious taste. Despite some tough competition from some high-quality opponents, The Ultimate took 1st Prize in the ‘Skunk’ category.
Dutch hash category: Kerosene Krash (2nd prize)
Many people love growing cannabis to convert to their own high-quality cannabis concentrates such as hash, cannabis oil, shatter etc. The Highlife Cup team love aromatic, high potency hash. Kerosene Krash took 2nd place in the Hash category.
These indica USA genetics combine cannabis cup winning genetics from Gorilla Glue and Sherbet. The outrageously loud fuel-scented terpene profile is quite unique on Kerosene Krash, making the buds (and the hash!) genuine connoisseur quality. Easy to grow and highly recommended!
Outdoor category: Sugar Bomb Punch (3rd prize)
Sugar Bomb Punch is a genuine XL yielding indica strain with elite USA genetics. Sugar Bomb Punch is a member of the exclusive Dutch Passion Extremely High THC seed collection. You can expect THC levels to be over 20%, meaning that you can expect a stress-busting indica that will sooth your body and soul with powerful effects.
Sugar Bomb Punch is easy to grow indoors or outdoors - where she is ready to harvest in early October at Dutch Latitudes. The Highlife Cannabis Cup judges were particularly impressed with the quality of the buds, potency and effects. For outdoor grown buds, they were difficult to distinguish from indoor grown buds. ‘High’ praise indeed!
Indica category: Kerosene Krash (1st prize)
Kerosene Krash took 2nd place in the Hash Category (above) but also took 1st place in the Indica Category. Kerosene Krash is part of the Extremely High THC seed collection, meaning that THC levels can be around (and even above) 25% in optimum conditions.
With such exceptional THC levels, it was no surprise to see Kerosene Krash top the list of indicas. The numbing potency levels are popular with medical cannabis users/growers and also delight the quality conscious recreational grower.
If you’re looking for a truly special indica with rock hard buds, a heady fuel/chemical aroma and banging potency we can’t think of a better strain to recommend!
