Sativa

light-medium

The original African strain, this plant prefers hot temperatures indoors or out.  It is commonly grown in California as a hydroponics crop.  It has a tight bud, a candy-like smell, and a fast-up high.  It is prized because it is easy to grow, though it is not generally as potent as some other strains.

The plant itself is of medium hight, growing to 150 centimeters.  It flowers for about eight weeks, usually in September or early October when grown outdoors.  It is generally one of the cheaper varieties available in medical shops and is often prescribed for those who are suffering from lighter ailments that do not require a heavy-hitting smoke or high THC level.

    To me, Durban Poison’s most distinctive feature is that its high lasts quite a long time. It has a lovely high cycle – never hits too hard, but seems to spread itself out to keep you at a good high for a while. It is a functional, uplifting high – I can get things done and ENJOY doing them. I have not experienced any paranoia with this strain, although that does seem like a common occurrence among other reviewers. This is truly a favorite sativa of mine and I will be going back for more!

    This was the first thing I smoked after two years of no cannabis. Bad Mistake! It might have been the fact I was dealing with a lot in my life at the time, or that my tolerance was absolutely nothing and I smoked a pure Sativa. Plus this was my first “name” strain I had ever smoked. I took one pull from a 6 in tube and held it in for a good 15 seconds and that was it. Over the course of 10 minutes it crept stronger and stronger over me. I could manage it but I kept thinking about and having borderline panic attacks about stuff I was dealing with. At moments I could be content, then like waves that would switch on I would have anxiety. The one hit high I had lasted me a good 6 hrs. Plus it made me not hungry in the least bit. I didn’t even want to eat dinner that night. A not very enjoyable way to reenter the cannabis world. On the positive side it did smell great it was a piney, aniseish, and skunky strong smell. The bud was very manicured, well cured and dense. So needless to say I am on the look out for an Indica or Hybrid to ease my way back. I will stay away from those pure sativas till I get my tolerance up. Not for beginners, absolutely not.

    This time smoking the Durban was much more pleasurable. I thought about my previous experience, and came to the conclusion that the environment (along with life events) contributed to my bad experience. SO after some care full thought and deciding. I found my self in a mood that would allow me to implement my idea. I wanted to ease my way into this potentially strong sativa,. The was I came up with to do so, was to take the smallest amount I probably ever have smoke in my life and put it into my essential vaaapp. Then I was going to vape it out of that with my butane torch. So I got home from school, I ate a nice sized lunch and hydrated. Then I prepared my gear. When I took the first hit i let the smoke build up in the glass vial first so I could see how much smoke i would be inhaling. I pulled the smoke and then sat for a minute or two, to allow my self to judge what level high it was going to be. After a few minutes with no real feeling there. I proceeded with the second hit. I stopped and waited to judge the buzz. It was still not where I felt I could be comfortable. So I took a third hit, I started to feel it now. This is about 15 minutes since the first hit. Now I feel it creeping on and i’m comfortable with it. I even get excited but I keep my composure and just focused on exactly how the high level was. I was satisfied after the fourth hit. All very small in comparison to say a joint hit or especially a pull off a six inch tube (like my first and bad experience). So I write this as I am feeling it. Its a good “head change” i would call it. I’m listening to irie music and enjoying it. I feel it in my eyes mostly, nothing in my body at all, and maybe a little in my head like very slight pressure in the temples, but nothing bothersome. I had two moments in the very first few minutes of actually feeling it that I would say were burst of excited and joy. Completely different from the first, which is great. I just wasn’t ready, prepared or situated enough to be where I was at the first try. Two years of break is not conducive to a full bowl hit of extremely potent medicinal strength ganja. Just an FYI, before this Durban I have only ever smoked good quality “upper grade mids” and commercial. I LOVED that because I thought all weed just got you as high as hell as I did on that stuff. Then BAM “hello” I was rudely awakened with the strength of medical grade. I love it though. It just takes a lot less to put me where I want to be as compared to what I was used to. So from here on out i’m always going to approach with caution. I will ease my self into each session, until I know and am familiar with my tolerance and smoke intake level on this stuff. Here’s to more enjoyable tokes to come!

    This is a tasty and potent strain for sure, and certainly a bit of a creeper. 12 minutes after my first hit and this strain probably just entered my top 5 up there with Amnesia Haze, Jack Herer, Headband & William’s Wonder.

    Quite the Sativa, definitely a subtle, yet minor body buzz going on, but it is almost completely eclipsed by the magic happening in my brain a moment or two after a nice hit of this deliciousness.

    I will suggest this to anybody who can handle–and enjoys doing so–a strong Sativa. I have the Durban Poisoning now, and I’m quite alright with that.

    Honestly, this is one of my favorite strains. Even though it’s not normally top shelf, it should be. Gave me a wonderful head high and nice body high too. I have taken ecstasy before in the past many many times but never got high on it; this strain makes me feel like this is what ecstasy would feel like even though I never have experienced an ecstasy high. I get very aroused and love the feeling of everything against my skin. This strain makes me feel very content and happy. I recommend trying it.

    Dude I vaped with this strain and I am so high. WOW. Beautiful sativa high. I got a slight headache at first but it’s starting to go away. My body is stoned and I can’t feel any pain. I am so content right now, this strain is so euphoric. And arousing!
    Ok so I left this open to tell you my journey with Durban Poison as we go(I’m so stoned right now)
    I went for a walk and omg it feels so good to be outside. But don’t smoke a cigarette while on this unless you can handle a dull headache. My mom is cooking dinner and there was a mound of diced tomatoes and I was just amazed at how beautiful it looked. Idk. Whoa and just now I felt a big drop in my high, like, I don’t feel high anymore. I hope it comes back, it’s only been 30 minutes….(to be cont.)
    Ok so yea it lasted like 30 minutes. But it was good while it lasted.

    It really is wonderful. I really recommend this to everyone. You have got to try it.

    Derban Poison is a very good strain, however this only applies if you have a drink with you as it gives you severe dry-mouth , but gave me a very talkative giggly high also. Overall a very good strain!

    What’s there to say about Durban that hasn’t already been said? The phenotype I am most familiar with has a wonderful citronella/Lime smell up front with notes of fresh cocoa and strawberries with the smell of a grass field in late summer ties it all together and rounds out the bottom. When smoked it smells like freshly cured tobacco. The buzz is an intense, bordering on psychedelic, sativa ride. In fact you almost don’t come down off durban it kinda just goes away. That being said it does go away rather quickly. I <3 you Durban.

    A favorite in the household. Pissy smell (in wine terminology, which isn’t a bad thing) and big, dense buds give a strong, buzzing head high that makes you feel like Mr. Mackey did when *he* smoked a joint, and you kinda float along. Wonderfully relaxing, good taste… mmmm….

    What is the opposite of a ninja?
    Yes, Durban Poison is correct.
    A little goes a long way, and the word “Blasted” describes the high it produces, like rocket fuel.

    Taste piney and sweet. I’d say it’s a good strain for being social or taking the edge off. It was refreshing.

    I have had a few various Durban’s!! To me this is one of my favorite highs out there! It reminds me of Christmas on a vacation. I would recommend this to anyone who is having a stressful day or to make a regular day even better. I think it was Early Durban — Blueberry X Durban which was highly euphoric and creative with a tint of blue, very kiefy. I do think I will keep this one in the personal stash forever, as I havent experienced a burnout yet :)

    Great sweet smell, some of the craziest Sativa I’ve ever had. Matter of fact, the only 100% saliva strain I’ve ever grown. Hydro grown, advanced nutrient additives with Cutting edge solutions base notes. Came out FANTASTIC! Also grew Trinity Snow, White Berry, Deadhead OG, Headband 707, Cali Black, GDP on this run. The durban is my favorite for late night as it mellows me out and helps me crash. The first taste of this one made me wanna take a nap, but the DREAMS man, the dreams…. LOL good stuff. Definitely recommend.

    One of my favorites. Straight up sativa rushing high. At times my mind gets very “zoned” and I may forget about my surroundings, but in a nice, peaceful way. Best daytime smoke. I smoke this stuff and give new meaning to “running” errands! Smoking late at nite always leaves me up well past bedtime. Great for creativity. Not the best taste, but the high makes up for it.
