Frisian Duck: The Perfect Camouflage Cannabis Strain To Grow
There are hundreds of cannabis strains in the world, but there is one that truly stands out.
Meet Frisian Duck, which was conceptualized and bred by Dutch Passion, one of the most established cannabis breeders. This strain is the result of combining the Frisian Dew and Ducksfoot varieties, combined with advanced genetics and breeding techniques. Frisian Duck has numerous medicinal and recreational benefits, but the reason why it’s a league all its own in the cannabis world is its looks.
The leaves of the Frisian Duck strain look like a webbed duck foot. Dutch Passion wanted to create a strain that thrives outdoors and after many attempts, they finally succeeded with this strain. According to their website, Dutch Passion has also received many requests time and again by outdoor and greenhouse growers for a stealthy strain that looks nothing like cannabis. This is why Frisian Duck is an excellent camouflage strain – you could grow it in your backyard and your neighbors would have absolutely no idea that it’s cannabis.
Frisian Duck Effects
The effects of Frisian Duck are best described as a balance between sativa and indica. Seasoned cannabis users may find that smoking Frisian Duck offers mild effects, making it suitable for beginners. After a few hits, its clear headed high begins to manifest followed by uplifting and happy feelings. Many users describe Frisian Duck to have a euphoric high but unlike potent strains, it isn’t overwhelming or won’t leave you couch locked because of getting extremely stoned. It offers a gentle surge of energy that will be useful in helping you stay productive.
Frisian Duck will also help you feel relaxed, especially as its indica effects start to set in. It’s a versatile strain that can be enjoyed either day or night, and with the right amount it can help you either go to sleep or stay productive. It has a piney, spicy aroma with citrus undertones that make medicating with Frisian Duck delicious and pleasurable. It generally has between 11-17% THC, and it has the ability to produce as much as 5% CBD, making it a good choice for medical patients.
Frisian Duck is a well-rounded strain that can aid in chronic pain treatment, appetite loss, fatigue, mood swings, depression, and stress. If you are prone to anxiety you may want to start with small amounts of this strain due to its high THC content. Mild side effects associated with Frisian Duck include anxiety, dry eyes, and dry mouth.
Growing Frisian Duck
Frisian Duck is the perfect outdoor plant because of its camouflage properties. It also doesn’t have a dank odor, so neighbors will have no clue that you’re growing cannabis. It has a high resistance to mold and mildew, and it’s generally low maintenance, making it ideal for beginner growers who are worried about privacy.
Frisian Duck is designed for outdoor growing in urban areas. It can grow up to 9 feet high in the shape of a Christmas tree, and it can withstand southern or northern climates. If you don’t have much space, Frisian Duck will still do well growing it in a pot or closet, and even with some companion plants in your garden. However, take note that this strain isn’t as discreet when it’s during the final stages of flowering so you may want to consider pairing it with companion plants to ensure it can’t be detected by your neighbors. Otherwise, Frisian Duck is disguised and looks like any other kind of garden plant. You only need to take extra care during the last few weeks especially as the buds become increasingly large.
Half of the Frisian Duck phenotypes produce dark purple buds, which aid in camouflage.
Although Frisian Duck is best grown outdoors, it can still be grown indoors and produce up to 14 ounces of bud. Outdoors, it can produce at least 16 ounces of bud. If you’re in the southern hemisphere, the best time to plant Frisian Duck is around October-November, and harvest time is April. If you’re in the northern hemisphere, Frisian Duck is planted outdoors or in a greenhouse by April-May, then typically harvests at the beginning of October.
