New Packaging for Dutch Passion cannabis seeds
Dutch Passion are pleased to announce tough new metal seed containers complete with 4-colour printing inside and out. Its a big change to the packaging and appearance of Dutch Passion seeds and a big quality improvement for customers.
The main reason for the new metal packaging is to avoid crushed seeds and improve the safety of the seeds during transport and storage for customers.
The old, original paper seed packets may have been collectors items for some people, but many customers also felt that their favourite seeds deserved a better quality, sturdier, packaging. The Dutch Passion team listened to the feedback, and over the last couple of years several designs were evaluated before the new metal tin design was voted the strongest, smallest and best.
Online cannabis seeds with the best quality packaging.
The new tins are slim, just 7mm thick, so they wont take up much space. They measure 90mm x 87mm and weigh 43g. They are strong enough to protect the seeds from accidental damage. Inside the tin is a rip-resistant plasticised paper seed pack, this is very difficult to tear open, scissors are the best way to open it. The polymer/paper inner seed packet protects the seeds from external moisture, this allows the seeds to retain the optimised moisture levels set by Dutch Passion when the seeds were packed.
The Dutch Passion production line has stopped supplying seeds in the old-style paper packets, and supply seeds only in the new tins. Anyone ordering seeds directly from Dutch Passion will receive seeds in the new tins. The old paper packets will still be sold in the shops until their stocks are replaced with the new metal tins.
Distinctive Dutch Passion quality.
The new Dutch Passion seed tins have a hinged lid. On the lid is a transparent window so you can see the internal seed packet. The tin has a metallic foil seal and has the Dutch Passion name stamped physically into the lid, this makes it quite unique and distinctive. One of the extra benefits of the new Dutch Passion packaging is to make it impossible for fake Dutch Passion seeds to be sold in counterfeit packaging. Although this wasn’t a major problem, some of the larger seed companies have been concerned about the increase in low quality counterfeit seeds in recent years. Dutch Passion customers receiving their seeds in the new packaging, with a foil-seal on the box can rest assured that they have genuine Dutch Passion seeds.
Once you have germinated your seeds, the tins can be re-used to store your joints, extracts, hash, weed, rolling papers etc. The tins are also excellent humidity barriers and a good container for medium-term storage of your seeds. We recommend storing seeds at 5ºC in a fridge where they will retain freshness for several years.
Storing cannabis seeds.
Dutch Passion are often asked about the wisdom of storing seeds in the freezer. Storing seeds in a freezer is not recommended unless you are a professional seed bank hoping to store seeds for decades in a completely undisturbed state. Frozen seeds are vulnerable to terminal shatter damage to the delicate internal seed tissues through accidental impact shock. For the home grower, the best way to store your seeds is in a fridge using the Dutch Passion seed tin, in the sealed polymerised seed envelope.
So, after 30 years its goodbye to the old packaging and in with the tough new metal tins. We hope you like the change.
