History & Genetics of Durban Poison

Durban Poison is a pure South African sativa landrace with a threatening moniker that alluded to its high psych activity. It is a strong and sticky type that does well in a range of growing environments. THC levels in Durban Poison range from 15% to 25%. Since at least the 14th century, cannabis has been grown on the African continent. By the time of Dutch colonization, it had spread south, and the Khoikhoi, San, and Bantu tribes, who are native to South Africa, had developed a culture of cannabis cultivation and acceptance. These tribes called the drug dagga. durban poison seed

A bag of South African seeds that American breeder Ed Rosenthal brought back to the U.S. in the late 1970s was used to selectively breed a number of plants. Later, Rosenthal gave some of his best stock to fellow breeder Mel Frank. Who improved the genetics to maximize resin production and blooming duration. Frank’s efforts led to the creation of the “A” and “B” lines of the original seed stock. The B line was donated to Amsterdam-based breeder Sam the Skunkman, who further shortened the flowering period for the strain.

Appearance, Aroma & Flavor

Durban poison’s medium- to large-sized buds have a foul aroma and flavor. Despite their long and tapering appearance, which is more a sativa trait, they have the dense, compact structure typical of indica types. Bright orange pistils that are intended to attract pollen from male fertilizing plants contrast the forest green leaves. The cured blossoms have a subtle shine and a very sticky texture due to a layer of milky-white trichomes. Durban Poison smells traditionally dank, with notes of licorice sweetness. When split open or burned, the blooms emit a thick, lung-expanding smoke that has a pungent, skunky scent. Along with the taste of sweet, almost overpowering pine sap, the licorice aroma is noticeable on the exhale. durban poison seed

Durban Poison takes its name from the second-largest city in South Africa. This provides an opportunity to experience one of Africa’s contributions to the variety of potent international landrace strains. It is very beneficial for making THC concentrates like shatter and wax because of its sweet, hashy aroma and high resin concentration.


Users of Durban Poison experience an immediate, focused high. Although the amplification of images and sounds may at first be unsettling. In the appropriate situation it can quickly become an energetic head high. This strain can be very helpful for artistic efforts because it is almost entirely cerebral and without any signs of crippling heaviness or couchlock. It is a terrific method to analyze the subtleties of a challenging film or piece of music. Smokers who use Durban Poison may find it to be a potent social lubricant that makes them conversational and at ease.

The strain can bestow a sense of mindfulness, which is said to help those who are constantly distracted by melancholy, anxiety, and PTSD. Any medical benefits are more mental than physical. Customers also point out that it can support people with attention deficit problems in maintaining a sharp focus. Durban Poison can have some negative side effects because it is so powerful and cerebral. Consumers may become overstimulated and uneasy as a result. Additionally, it can cause a rapid association “mindrace” that makes smokers feel irrational or out of control. Durban Poison is a classic wake and bake strain that is unquestionably better suited to daytime use than lazy overnight use. The normal duration of its high is two to three hours.

Durban Poison, which is sometimes compared to espresso, gives users a mobile and active high. The high is as delightful at a party as it is when they’re alone themselves working on creative or mundane activities.
