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.

    Very powerful bud, couple rips in a bong and you or your buddies could be in over your head. Pace yourself because this is quite the sativa, packs a serious punch. Bud appearance, medium to dark green buds long orange hairs, smells slightly lemony and tangy. Taste hard to describe, probably since i was so high. Ill have to another review, less stoned. Overall TRY THIS BUD, really good for daytime and active things but pay attention to how high you are.

    Durban Poison…helped my ADHD so much! Gave me feelings of hope & confidence too. Not a trippy high, but it does produce that amazing sense of euphoria. Also doesn’t knock you out, actually makes you want to be outside and active.

    ADHD gone with this strain. I smoked this on a fresh 1/2ft powder day skiing on the mountain and I’ll just say that I’ve never had any spiritual experience like this before.

    -BLACK BELT BUD- Covered in tiny red/brown hairs & trichromes. Great stuff but has that Durban flavor in my throat that I’m used to with the DP i’ve had in the past. Not a harshness, per se. But so chronic you can’t help but cough. Good sleepy time bud and GREAT for a wake and bake!

    -2nd Degree BLACK BELT BUDS- DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!! THC: 22+%!!! Now, the only reason this DP doesn’t kick so much behind to make it a 3rd Degree is the taste. Don’t get me wrong, the flavor is phenominal. Just not my favorite flavor. Has what I call a Durban Harshness.

    A very good weed. High is very sativa, clear, happy. Good worker weed. Has a certain taste, that I have found differs from grower to grower. Not fruity smelling, but more of a “poison” piney taste. I smoke it for the high, more or less. Very strong sativa high. I always grab this if I can, cause it makes workdays breeze by.

    Just tried this highly praised strain for the first time. Great smell and taste, and I noticed that when smoking it with friends, it makes our conversations go to another level that I don’t always see when sharing other strains. Overall very positive and I highly recommend it.

    Oh yum, a full bright sativa with a scent of sweet pine with a hint of mint and impeccable citrus taste. The buds are tightly bound and frostier than the arctic. Effects are incredibly euphoric and stimulating with bouts of intense energy and clear thought. Like all full sativas, this strain should be cautioned for those who are incredibly prone to anxiety.

    An experience with pure Durban is always a good experience, with its abilities to maintain a clear mind while providing a creative and euphoric experience it is by far my favorite strain to relieve stress and even some nausea. As far as depression it is an unknown word in the lexicon of a Durban medicator.

    Born and bred in Durban, South Africa I’ve been smoking DP all my life. From my younger days of buying readymade blah’s (joints) at Cool Runnings to purchasing top notch indoor and hydro grades I can say without a doubt that DP is the best, most balanced green I’ve ever smoked. Best part of the week was a sunday morning DP skyf on the way to beach follwed by a swim in the Indian Ocean with the high lasting all the way back home to a cracker breakfast. THE best strain for smoking in a group and having lekker discussions.

    It is truly the mark of a connoisseur when one enjoys a Sativa and it is a rare thing in any of today’s markets to find a truly worth while strain; especially one considered to be 100%, never hybridized. As a grower and smoker of Durban Poison I can say that I do not regret the lengthy time it takes for her to ripen fully, or the difficulty in trimming every small spiny leaf and curing them to perfection. Because she a gorgeous plant to watch grow, and the aroma she emits while trimming is unlike any other and remains with the bud throughout its life. All head, no body, and a mood that is hopeful, determined, and deep.
    If I was only allowed one word to describe it the word would be brilliant, in every aspect of the word.

    Obtained from Greenside Medical Dec 2012. I love the lemony eucalyptus smell that it this has, and the taste is fantastic. The first hit I ever tried of it made me sneeze, which is always a good sign (for me) of a great bud. This is definitely my “go to” bud now, replacing Green Crack & Blue Dream. Great Sativa! I will definitely be back for more.

    Strong sativa. Tastes like lemon & eucalyptus. Lot’s of energy, but dry mouth. Great if you want something to take away your appetite.

    Had my head in the clouds for a while. It really sneaks up on you and grabs you by the balls. Things were very clear when I was stoned, its very tricky though. Many times I’m a lot higher than I think I am. Recommended if you’re a sativa lover like me.

    I haven’t been this happy about my smoke in a very long time. It’s rare to find weed that “clicks” with my personality, that makes me so happy. I’ve found my new favorite friend.

    Well? I smoked a very small amount. Was a little harsh going down but went back in the house and waited….15 minutes later, I felt like someone fat was sitting on my chest. My brain wasn’t making me breath…I had to really think about breathing to keep me going! Lol. 20 minutes into this tasty sativa, I was hearing shit that wasn’t there! Short buzz but it kicked my ass!
