Durban Poison – Description, Effects and Taste
Durban Poison is a South African landrace sativa cultivar recognized for its spicy/sweet anise-like fragrance and flavor.
It is also known for its clear-headed intellectual impact.
Despite being a (mostly) pure sativa, most varieties finish soon and do not stretch excessively.
Many people believe that the true South African Durban Poison is incredibly racy and takes up to 120 days to finish.
However this is not the case with the seed versions (Afropips and African Seeds seems to be the longest to finish).
The words of Sam The Skunkman
He once said “I was the one who initially introduced Durban Poison from South Africa.
In the late 1970s, I imported about 100 seeds from South Africa and grew them in California.
The majority were hermaphrodites with tiny calyxes and poor buds.
But I realized the potential for an early sativa and spent several years cleaning it up.
In the early 1980s, I finally got rid of the majority of the negative features and released it.”
He continued saying ” It was an instant hit when I brought it to Amsterdam;
it’s one of the few sativa strains that can be grown outdoors in Holland.
They can be grown if the weather is nice at harvest time.
Until Afro-Seeds popped up a few years ago, every seed seller in Holland acquired some.
They also developed copies as well as hybrids;
all of the Durban Poison genetics being passed about were originating from my work.
My Durban Poison is a sativa, pure IBL landrace that I developed from seed lines.
They are kept alive with male and female clones.
There has been no change in the gene pool because all seeds are created from 20-year-old clones.
The plants smelled and tasted strongly of licorice and anise, yet they were still young.
The strength was medium to high, the vigor was high.
The yield was good, and the consistency was excellent.
To be honest, I thought it was a daytime smoke.”

Durban is a fantastic daytime strain with a well-defined set of benefits that boost creativity.
They also boost sociability, and general happiness.
It’s a high-energy strain that’s usually regarded as one of the more pure-feeling sativa kinds on the market.
True South African Durbans are notoriously racy and borderline hallucinogenic.
But the toned-down Dutch versions that circulate in the US and Europe lose some of that edge.
Probably for the benefit of the average consumer.
Energy, appetite stimulation, migraine relief, and anti-nausea qualities are the main pharmacological benefits.
Durban was well-known and well-liked in Holland as one of the few Sativas that could finish outside.
The short-flowering varieties are ideal for Northern temperatures.
