Durban Poison Strain

Sativa

THC: 24%, CBD: 1%, CBN: 1%

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.

Post Review

Very nice. Smooth, sweet taste and very strong.


The Best Sativa All the reviews about Focus, Energy, Pain Relief are spot on I have been buying it consistently since I have been purchasing Recreational Marijuana legally I am a huge Sativa fan This is in my top 3 strains with King Tut and Sour D


I use this strain more than any other. I smoke it daily, but lately I've been using a DP cartridge and a vape pen. This sativa strain gives me a lot of creative energy and focus. I also use it every time I go to the gym , I have great energy and it's a great help with muscle and joint pain when you're active. I just restored a 123 year old farm house and DP was a muse for me.


This strain help keep you focus especially in the mortgage industry.


I have found prerolls with Durban Poison back crossed with a Thai and these give me a feeling like no other. Most of the Durban poison available in MD are in concentrates, and they are exellent. They hit quite strong and go right to my head. As long as I remember to redose every two hours, all is well!


Durban Posion is perhaps one of the better sativa strains I’ve consumed. I usually smoke a bowl before hitting the gym. DP allows me to focus solely on my workouts. Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve not experienced the paranoia effects that some say they’ve experienced. For me, it’s a very cerebral high which allows me to focus on the tasks at hand. It also leaves me extremely horny 😊. Love this strain during the day.


It was supposed to be "average" quality, so I had another after just 20min. Then at +- 1h from the this bad boy hit the spot. I was typically energetic, and able to converse and function. Unfortunately I also got 1 heck of a headache, and a fear that I will be getting nauseous. For mental issues I would recommend. But for physical it's not really doing the job as well as other strains. Excellent for getting high though.


This is one of my go-to strains for depression & increasing my energy levels; I will buy it whenever I can find it locally. Do not pass up the opportunity to try one of the best & most classic strains!


This sativa is kick ass. This might be the strongest sativa I have ever smoked


Not for the faint of heart, potent. Very tasty strain , and it's been used in some of the best hybrids on the planet. I had this decades ago and it's still a favorite. Very cerebral. Gonna try this with mixed with tweedlefarms SuzyQ one day. I wanna see an indica dominant cbd strain and durban together in a hybrid. Prob take the edge off the paranoia a bit.


Very strong strain. However I have to disagree with the energizing effect. This stuff knocks me out.


For me this was the most depressing smoke I have ever had.


Durban Poison distillate is pure sunshine sauce, kicks that depression right in the ass!


4.5 killer for a sativa (im more of a indy phan) anyway the smell of this one is crazy, high terpinolene 10 plus mg's ocimene;5.31mg b myrcene;2.49mg b pinene;1.84 and its says CBN is 14% (i dont know if thats an error @ the digipath labs or if it possibly is 14%cbn, I actually wouldnt doubt it as this was right up there with remedys jilly bean which topped out at over 9% terps!! crazy! Gives a very trippy high all while killing any pain. just puts you into that "comfort zone" which a couple good phat hits. I tried remedys cyanide og live resin which is DP X deadhead OG and it gives of the terpinolene and lemonene flavor like f'ing CRAZY, YUM! the harvest daate was 6/6/18 and bought on 8/28 so the bud was fresh and cured perfectly if you know what I mean by that. very happy with this purchase-which in turn lead me to buy the cyanide OG (thanks to the NuWu budtender who recd to me!


Wow. Been scared of this one because it's so strong, but I just wasted a precious Sunday off with what was sure to turn into a migraine. Heavy head, heavy mood, foggy head, fuzzy thinking, feeling SO OFF and not present. Stiff, achy. Even saw some random migraine spots.Vaped a teeny bit the size of a Nerd candy (I'm sensitive to everything and this amount -and a couple more if needed- works for me) and the back of my neck released, everything lifted about 80%, my SINUS opened up (no more neck pressure!). Won't be scared of this strain anymore. Will always respect them though, especially the Sativas.


One of my favorite sativas. I wake up in the morning with crippling headaches so small dose of DP oil flushes it all out and I feel functional again. Gives me a hell of a cottonmouth though, but could be managed by staying hydrated with some watermelon.


This is still my go to for fatigue, inflammation and pain. I suffer from Tennis elbow and I’ve never played tennis! When the weather is bad the inflammation is unbearable. Ibuprofen doesnt help, but Durban always does and it put me in a chipper mood as well. Win/ win! Durban Poison is my #1 how about you🤪


My favorite strain to just put me in a great mood and ready to take on anything.


I think it's funny people think any strains are "100% this" or that. The indica/sativa identity classification system is a myth. It's all about pheno-genetic identity. Kind of like the "non-GMO" myth.


This flower is my #1 sativa!


This is absolutely the best euphoric pain relieving flower I have tried yet. Premium flower delivers a primo experience.


Nice smoking a strain with some cool history behind it. This 100% Sativa does what it is supposed to do which is to pick you up & keep you going. Had me doing things with no heavy body effects. Buds were a lighter green with some orange pistils & a nice layer of trichomes. Good stuff here :)


Durban Poison is my NEW favorite sativa strain! It's such an uplifting feel good strain! A+!


Durban is my my go to hike strain, similar to Chocolope. Durban is pure 100% sativa energy and focus when done in moderation! Pain and all worries go away. Chocolope is similar but has that little bit indica that will make you want to take breaks and a lunch. Your really experienced when you can handle these strains just hanging out and doing nothing and enjoying their full effects!


Durban poison is with out a doubt my favorite day time smoke and wake n bake for sure. The flavor is slightly sweet, with a classic weed taste that sticks on your tounge. This is an instant pain killer. Headaches gone. Morning aches and pain gone. Your mood will instantly lift and you’ll be ready for whatever the day brings. Another awesome feature is that Durban Poison is an appetite suppressant. That’s right no munchies. This Classic untouched land race plant sounds dangerous, but it will make you enjoy life to the fullest. Don’t pass up a chance to try this classic. It’s one of the Best ever🤪!


I love Durban Poison! “It’ll Lessen Your Load”...I think that line is from a song that references (Durban Poison) called “30 Days in the Hole” by Humble Pie. The song rocks btw :) as does Durban Poison.!!!


I get high a lot and was not ready for this yummy stuff. Cerebral bang with nice shades of goofiness. Not for driving!


I agree 100% with Caitlink9. The Durban is one of the best all Sativa in the world! However, like anything else it can have an opposite effect if you do too much!


Good head high that allows focus and alleviates anxiety. Relieves pain without couch lock effect. Go to strain for daytime medicating.


Great head high! And I can function great on it!


Helps my pain and anxiety in the morning..No longer trying to talk myself out of going to work..nor am I waiting to get caffeinated out the door. A few puffs off a bowl n I'm good to go. No major munchies either , which is a plus if your trying to watch your weight .


Love at first smoke. Not your new age Sativa. This smoke is smooth and chill. Not even one little cough. Great for social events and just hanging out. No jitters or nerves, just relaxed. Also great for aches and pains. Kills headaches with one hit.


Exactly as described... Makes adulting not so adultish.


Focused, euphoric high. A stronger White Russian---which means it is Superb. Gets rid of pain, stress of the day and is a beautiful high. In rotation.


I have to say, Durban Poison is easy to grow and she talks to you and tells you what she wants. I love her. any topic on the strain is good to great but more on the great side when seriously looked into. I can almost say i tried this before but can remember when. I cant beleave how great this is. \you wont regret trying it out except you will regret not trying sooner.


Durban Poison From a popular Trinidad Co. rec. disp. is by far the most powerful Sativa I have ever had the pleasure to vape! I monitor my heart rate via Apple Watch 3, this awesome strain raises it by 10 to 15 beats per minute! This strain can motivate you in ways you didn’t think possible, very talkative, hyper .. see ya after 26.2


very nice for my fibromyalgia/cronic arthritis.


When I seen this strain, I couldn't pass up on it. I've heard amazing things about Durban Poison and when I tried it, maannn! Did it live up to it's hype. Originating in Africa, I love the name Durban and poison, as this pretty leaf is not one to play with. It packs such a heavy hit but with such a sweet taste and an aroma of pine. You may try to kiss your lips as you're inhaling. Lol. This super potent strain will leave you energetic, happy and feeling creative. I recommend this to any heavy daytime smoker as of me, I'm an Indica guy. This still fits in my top 10 strains though.


this was one of the worst sativa strains ive ever had. it just doesnt work one bit. at least the flavor was good.


It was awesome but I've had better


very pleased with this strain - does what it says it does


I loved this the first time and it was super heady and euphoric...lasted longer than average and was a gorgeous bud. Awesome for depression and stress in my case.


Oh man this could be one of my top 3 favorite strains of all time. I've smoked a lot of herb and the taste of Durban poison is fuckin phenomenal!! The pineness is what I love about cannabis. The high is really uplifting and euphoric!! it's soo strong after the effects wore off I passed the F out.


If you like sativa high as I do....you'll love this strain. Gets your day up and rollin' with a smile. Doesn't get much better than DP.


Very stimulating and energetic without provoking anxiety. Euphoric. Minimal muscle relaxation or appetite stimulation compared to other strains. Good pre-workout strain. People who vape and want to get the full Durban Poison experience need to increase their vape temp to at least 430 degrees F, as THCV has a substantially higher vaporization temperature than THC.


This is the holy grail of strains for those of us who find contraindications with weed; what many/most consider an extremely racy, buzzy, speedy, overhigh strain actuallly is a centering and focusing strain for me and some others. It's like when hyperactive kids get amphetamines to calm them down. Durban Poison takes my normally all-over-the-place brain and lets it calibrate to singular thoughts and tasks. Nice sunshiney brightness, clear and a bit trebly, it accents the high notes. Very few strains are as consistent in their effects as DP, across a range of producers. The THC-V present prevents me from wanting to eat the entire fridge. I get a lot of research done and actually remember all of it! To me, this is the best. The ultimate strain.


Love this strain so much. It is a very potent one and really offers everything I look for in a strain. The flower itself is very dense and covered in white artichokes. The smell is really something else. It smells just like Durban but has a mildly sweeter undertone; it's intoxicating breaking open a bud. It tastes just like it smells but even sweeter and actually very sour on the exhale. The hits are very smooth and satisfying every time with the taste lingering in the smoke up until the last hit. The high is a very enjoyable and extremely energetic one; this is NOT a strain to smoke during the night if one wishes to sleep well. It has a very noticible body high that lingers for around 2 hours but instead of a sedative stoned feeling it's a very racy and upbeat high energy feeling. This is accompanied by an mild psychedelic head high with racy thoughts and a short attention of sorts. It's a wonderful high for manuel labor or a repetitive task or going out and about, but not a great one for chilling at home watching tv or playing video games. It does have a noticeable euphoria to it that will leave you in a happy mood so it can also be used in social situations; though overindulgence can lead to an extremely psychedelic and paranoid high so caution must be taken, even by long-time users.


Awesome strain and this comes from someone who falls Asleep on most the rest


This is the weed I've been looking for, laughed my ass off at the Deadpool movie !!!


Aight, so i just smoked a generous bong hit, and...yeah...that's it, my search is over. All that I endure daily, (chronic pain, anxiety, depression, fatigue and then some, is slowly departing, (temporary of course). Energy levels are up, feeling damn good. Time to reinvent myself. Let's ride..


Well this strain replaced Laughing Buddha for me, and its a better fit since it doesn't leave me paranoid or highly sensitive, but no sort of focus with this strain either. Creativity yes, but one good thin is it helps me relax and I can sleep. I'm only vaping this tho....


Very very nice!


Truly the "espresso of cannabis"... I had trouble sleeping after using it too close to bedtime, as my mind was wonderfully stimulated. If you need to have a kickass productive day, DB is the holy grail. As a preworkout, it's a great and natural choice. Can't wait to take this strain camping next week!


Always one of my favorite strains!!!


Very good sativa it leaves you relaxed wich surprised me a very good strain


Very pungent smell, extremely sticky. Great taste! I'm ready to start my day somewhat pain free. The bud has excellent color and density. Some of the best bud I have ever smoked. The high is clean and clear. Not too bad on the dry mouth. Truely some of the best bud I have smoked! If you can get your hands on this strain I strongly suggest doing so. I bought a quarter ounce 2 weeks ago and had to wait till today to get more.


I was skeptical at first, but after one toke, I was hooked, exactly what I was looking for, nice happy energetic high, and they're right about the head high at first, then it evens out to a awesome good time


First time this was available. No words to describe how wonderful this bud acts/tastes.


Very Good head hi with a relaxing body buzz later. 👍🏾👌🏾💪🏾👊🏾💨🏋🏽😜🤓🔥#jaethehybridwhite


Just added a pic of DURBAN POISON I got from ROYALS CANNABIS! This is hands down one of the best strains I've smoked and my favorite!! Big fat dense buds with a smell that's a cross between fruit lemon and skunk super dank love the head high!


I had my first experience with this strain several days ago and am very happy with it. Gives me a lasting head buzz and doesn't make me sleepy, very smooth.


Being a diehard Durban Poison smoker, anything less than that wide awake buzz is less than desirable. White Durban has that and more! I got the same uplifting buzz you get with DP, but I also got a bit more of a stoney buzz. Not too tremendous, but definitely noticeable. I found my mind wandering a bit more than happens with DP. It was a great lawn mowing strain! :-) I bought a gram, and smoked that and returned for an eighth. It's Durban Poison with a twist.


This is a shifty high. It comes on pretty jerkily,but when it's at it best it's sativa energetic and attentive. One odd aspect to such a heady high is that it made me feel somewhat stupid. I was grouchy and edgy at the end of the high.


This strain has helped me get by the unpleasant side-effects of chemotherapy prior to and following a gastrectomy.


if you need a pick me up, a creativity streak, or a good uplifting buzz, nothing beats Durban Poison. If you need to do chores or tasks around you house or in the yard after smoking some DP, you'll be good to go. Many of the buds I have smoked of theis strain are very dense. It is almost like smoking hash, the way the bud will sometimes burn.


Had this in Denver, CO. Fantastic.


For being "Top Shelf" I found it to be a bit underwhelming... Not the most flavorful, when they say "earthy undertones" I don't normally think of dirt, but durban poison tasted like it was cured in a pit in the earth. The high was very functional, as many have stated in previous reviews, and I agree I could have done just about anything I normally could, because I wasn't really that high... Mellow buzz, just goes to prove that high THC does not equate to better high. If you are looking for a nice Sativa that does everything this is supposed to then I would try Cinex, tastes better and gives a much better high.


Durban is a top shelf sativa strain, one of my all time favs! Great energetic high!


The Durban Poison from Exotic farms is by far my favorite strain I have tried from the despenseries in my area. The amazing head high, the taste and the appearance of the buds are A+. Love the long lasting high as well.


I have grown this strain myself and always enjoyed the nice positive buzz, so was excited to see it for sale at a couple of the local stores. I have tried the Sweet Water Farms 17% and another from down the road and definitely prefer this one. Even though THC levels are lower, the best part - in my personal opinion for this strain - is the taste and Sweet Water Farms definitely tastes the best of the ones I have tried so far. Great smoke and vape and best flavor by far.
