Strain of the week: Durban Poison

by Patrick Dalton

What is it?No mystery here. Durban Poison is named after South Africa’s port city of Durban, where it’s been smuggled out of for decades. It’s a pure subtropical sativa with soaring cerebral high. It’s the backbone of many modern hybrids because of its fast flowering time, healthy yields and amazing trichome production.

The effectsYou’ll instantly notice an intense euphoria followed by an energetic and clear-minded lift that lasts up to three hours. Described as the espresso of cannabis, this African queen will physically and mentally energize you without the paranoia of some of the less-balanced modern sativa crosses.

The smellDurban gives off a verity of smells like licorice and citrus, but its most prominent odor is that of pine sap with a little spice and fruit mixed in.

The look Saturated crystals make this a phenomenal hash maker with dense, elongated buds covered in light green leaves and bright orange follicles.

The tasteBecause Durban is the ancestor of so many newer hybrids, you’ll instantly recognize the spicy inhale and a more grapefruit exhale.

The final verdictDon’t buy this in Durango because I want it all to myself. Just a few hits gets you right. It’s the only sativa I can honestly say gave me energy without icing my brain. It’s a functional high that will relax you, keep you happy and make you think like Stephen Hawking on too much caffeine. It’s good for appetite, migraines, nausea, peripheral nerve pain and getting you pleasantly adjusted.
