Durban Poison is a hybrid strain that brings a unique cherry flavor profile to the high-energy qualities of Durban Poison. True to its sativa roots,
Cherry Durban Poison delivers a rush of cerebral euphoria that lifts the mood without clouding the mind. Coming from the South African port city of Durban, this strain
is known for its sweet, earthy smell and buds packed with crystal trichomes. Durban Poison offers relief from stress, depression, pain, fatigue, and headaches. The
most commonly reported side effects are generally mild, including dry mouth, dry eyes, and anxiousness.
Durban is known for possessing a very distinct blend of sweet and spicy smells — fennel/anise, orange, lemon, and a creamy sweetness are the most common descriptors.
Very sweet and intoxicatingly complex, Durban Poison presents the sativa-lover with a palate of flavors ranging from sweet lemon candy to spicy anise, making it a favorite of many dispensary patients as well as connoisseurs.
Durban is a fabulous daytime strain, with a clear, functional effects package that stimulates creativity, sociability, and overall mood. It’s very energetic and is seen as one of the more pure-feeling sativa varieties widely available on the market. The true South African Durbans are known for being extremely racy and borderline psychedelic, but the toned-down Dutch versions that circulate the United States and Europe lose some of that edge, perhaps for the benefit of the average consumer. The primary medicinal benefits are energy, appetite stimulation, migraine relief, and anti-nausea properties.
Durban was known and loved in Holland because it was one of the few sativas that could finish outdoors — the short-flowering versions are suitable for Northern climates. Grows very tall outdoors, but most varieties are totally manageable indoors, especially with training such as SCROG.
