Durban Poison

Named after the second-largest port city in South Africa, Durban Poison is a Sativa-dominant strain of cannabis that offers an opportunity to enjoy one of the contributions of Africa to the diversity of potent landrace strains worldwide. It has a sweet smell of hash and a high content of resin that makes it especially valuable in the production of THC concentrates. Durban Poison, with a threatening name that hints at its powerful psychoactivity, is often comparable to espresso, giving users a mobile and active high that is as enjoyable at a party as it is alone, performing creative or mundane tasks. It is a bold and sticky variety well suited to a range of growing circumstances.

Since at least the 14th century, cannabis has been grown on the African continent; it had disseminated south by the time of Dutch colonization, and cultivation and cultural acceptance of the cannabis, which they called dagga, had been brought about by the Khoikhoi, San, and Bantu groups indigenous to South Africa. Ed Rosenthal selectively bred several plants in the late 1970s in the United States. To optimize the resin content and flowering time, Rosenthal then passed some prime specimens on to fellow breeder Mel Frank, who fine-tuned the genetics.

Is Durban Poison Indica or Sativa?

Known for being extremely titillating and borderline psychedelic, the true South African Durbans have lost some of that edge if one takes the toned-down Dutch versions that circulate in the United States and Europe. Durban Poison has a THC content of between 15 and 25 percent. Durban Poison’s buds are medium to large. Although they have a dense, compact structure typical of Indica varieties, they are more characteristically like Sativa in their long and tapered shape. Bright orange pistils are counterbalanced by green leaves. A coating of grey trichomes gives a light shimmer and an exceptionally sticky texture to the cured flowers. Classically, Durban Poison has a grimy smell accompanied by hints of sweet licorice. When broken open or burnt, the flowers are pungent and skunky and give off thick, lung-expanding smoke. On the exhale, the aroma of licorice is readily apparent, along with the taste of sweet, near pine sap. Durban is renowned for having a very distinct combination of sweet and spicy smells. The most popular adjectives are orange, lemon, and a creamy sweetness. Very sweet and exhilaratingly complex, Durban Poison provides the Sativa-lover with a palette of flavors ranging from sweet lemon candy to spicy anise, making it a favorite for many patients as well as enthusiasts.
