Expect a major blow to the head from this super-potent strain. A pure sativa, Durban Poison is the beloved
inbred descendant of a sativa strain grown in South Africa.
Ed Rosenthal, an American cannabis activist, discovered the original strain and brought in back to the United States in the 1970s.
It has long been a favorite of stoners and medical marijuana patients here.
Durban Poison has THC levels that can reach 24%, making it one of the world’s more powerful strains.
This strain hits with a strong, happy head high that’s great for creativity and daytime errands.
Paranoia may be a possible side effect, along with dry mouth.
Durban Poison is an effective treatment for depression and anxiety,
as well as chronic pain, and it can also be helpful with nausea. This strain is ideal for making
concentrates, as the bud is covered in over-sized trichomes.
The dominant smell and taste of Durban Poison is earthy and sweet, with a subtle pine aroma.
The buds are round and chunky, with a dense coating of trichomes. This strain is best for active periods,
chores, and other daylight activities. https://medicalcannadispensary.com
A landrace sativa variety from South Africa, Durban Poison is known for its spicy/sweet anise-like smell
and taste and its clear-headed cerebral effect. Though it’s a (normally) pure sativa, most versions finish fairly
quickly and don’t stretch like crazy. Many claim the real South African Durban Poison is very racy and finishes
as long as 120 days, but that’s not the case for the versions available in seed form (Afropips and
African Seeds seems to be the longest to finish).
Per Sam the Skunkman, “South African Durban Poison was first introduced by me.
I got maybe 100 seeds from South Africa and grew them in California in the late 70s.
Most were hermaphrodite, small calyxes, as well as not so great buds. But I saw the potential for an early sativa so
I work with it for a few years to clean it up. I finally eliminate most of all the bad traits, and introduced it in the early 80s.”
