Durban Poison Sativa Dominant Hybrid Weed Strain is Now available at Bulk Buddy’s Premium Online Dispensary In Canada.

With a menacing name that hints at its powerful psychoactivity, Durban Poison is a purely South African sativa landrace. It is a bold and sticky variety that’s well adapted to a variety of growing conditions. Durban Poison boasts a THC content of between 15% and 25%.

Cannabis has been cultivated on the African continent since at least the 14th century; by the era of Dutch colonization, it had spread south and the Khoikhoi, San, and Bantu groups indigenous to South Africa had established cultivation and cultural acceptance of the drug, which they called dagga.

In the late 1970s, American breeder Ed Rosenthal selectively bred several plants from a bag of South African seeds that he brought back to the U.S. Rosenthal then passed some prime specimens on to fellow breeder Mel Frank fine-tuned the genetics to optimize resin content and flowering time. Frank’s efforts resulted in “A” and “B” lines of the original seed stock; the B line was given to Amsterdam breeder Sam the Skunkman, who further reduced the strain’s flowering time.

Buds of Durban Poison are medium to large. Although they have a dense, compact structure typical of indica varieties, their long and tapered shape is more characteristic of sativas. The forest green leaves are offset by bright orange pistils, meant to catch pollen from male fertilizing plants. A coating of milky-white trichomes gives the cured flowers a light sheen and an incredibly sticky texture. Durban Poison has a classically dank smell punctuated by hints of sweet licorice. The flowers are pungent and skunky when broken open or burnt and give off thick, lung-expanding smoke. The licorice aroma is evident on the exhale, along with the taste of sweet, almost cloying pine sap.

Durban Poison has a clear, focused high that hits users right away. The amplification of sights and sounds may be initially disorienting but can slide into an active, buzzy head high in the right setting. Almost entirely cerebral with no hints of debilitating heaviness or couchlock, this strain can be especially helpful for creative endeavours — it’s a great way to contemplate the nuances of an intense movie or a piece of music. Durban Poison can also be a strong social lubricant, helping smokers to feel chatty and more at ease. Any medical benefits are more mental than physical — this strain can confer a sense of mindfulness to help those perpetually distracted by depression, anxiety, and PTSD. It can also help those with attention deficit disorders maintain a deep, intense focus. Because it’s so potent and cerebral, Durban Poison can also have some undesirable side effects. It may put users into overdrive, making them feel on edge or jittery. It can also lead to a kind of rapid-association “mind race,” making smokers feel paranoid or out of control. More suited to daytime than sleepy nighttime use, Durban Poison is a quintessential wake and bake strain. Its high typically lasts between 2 and 3 hours.

Because of its hardy and time-tested genetics, Durban Poison is a good grow for newcomers to cultivation. It can reach 12 feet in height, and as such, can be successfully grown outdoors in warm, semi-humid climates with consistent daily temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Indoor growers will want to tame Durban Poison’s height by bending and pruning the spindly branches early on in the vegetative stage. Thanks to its time-tested cultivation and internationally-engineered genetics, this strain flowers remarkably quickly for a sativa, reaching maturity in 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and by late September when grown outdoors. Plants also reward growers with a higher than average yield.

Named after South Africa’s second-largest city, Durban Poison offers a chance to enjoy one of Africa’s contributions to the panoply of potent global landrace strains. It has a sweet, hash smell and a high resin content that makes it particularly valuable in the production of THC concentrates like shatter and wax. Often likened to espresso, Durban Poison gives users a mobile and active high that’s as enjoyable at a party as it is at alone, accomplishing creative or mundane tasks.

    This one smells great and seems like for a aaa strain it’s thc is definatly higher that the aaaa dolato I was sent but. Again it’s ok but the leafy nature of the buds makes me feel like I’m smoking shake . But I wanted two strains in particular nevielles haze and WiFi og but the haze sold out as I checked out so I could order. Then WiFi I was sold out after I had already place my order . So had to roll the dice and got a natural 1 . So won’t order again unless they have pounds of the strains I want .

    This order made me happy

  71. Xero

    My wife’s favorite strain and this batch made her pretty happy. Great floral/licorice/pine flavor and large, tight buds. Perfect all day strain with no burnout. Great job.

  72. JohnnyB420 (verified owner)

    Weird, first time ive ever got durban poison that wasn’t purple and had that distinct ‘black diamond’ purpley smell. Its literally the exact opposite in every way. But it looks even better than the pics, not fluffy but dryish spongey type buds. Boveda made it nice. Buzz suprisingly leans more toward the indica side of hybrid, maybe i got the wrong kind? Who knows but ill try n post a pic later. Either way its good 👍

  73. Joas fox (verified owner)

    Wow this stuff went fast! Glad I changed my order and got this strain 🐶

  74. jay douglas (verified owner)

    Thankfully it doesn’t taste like it smells. Super enjoyable high and decent smoke, but man is it hard to stick my nose in the bag😂

    Still happy with it though. Great price and good quality bud

  75. Kushclouds

    Too much shake n big stems in the budds not happy with this stuff

  76. Chloë Sherman (verified owner)

    Was super delicious, lots of crystal!

  77. Ryland leader (verified owner)

    This stuff is some gas felt it as soon as I exhaled and I’m a heavy smoker, very smooth smoke with white ash,and not too bad for looks either,I’ll give it a 5 all dayyyy

  78. buddy514 (verified owner)

    The flowers of this strain are beautiful and chubby. Thi’s perfect for a daytime smoke to keep all your energy up. The taste, the smell, it’s all there! I buy again.

  79. buddy514 (verified owner)

    I’ve ordered Durban poison before is it’s weird it wasn’t like that. this order seems more like a Purple Haze, it smells and tastes like PH. maybe there was a mistake, even the photo is not like before. I am very happy to smoke PH, it has been missing for a long time at BB

  80. Aro Man (verified owner)

    First time having this exotic classic, happy i had a chance to grab some before it’s sold-out. Having no referrence for that specific strain, I can’t compare, but I’d say it fits pics and description and with a singular aromatic profile (unusual) and type of high making it worth trying.
    Great clear-headed focused and productive type of high. fresh and well-cured as expected, good quality/value

  81. Jeff in the Flesh (verified owner)

    Mar 15th batch. Wow! No reviews in 10 months. Will update once received.

    Pungent but sweet citrusy kinda smell. Good buzz solid all around.

    Sativa high, smells delicious, tastes like creamy berries, usually starts my day with this one

  85. JohnnyB420 (verified owner)

    If its a quad why is it know 84$ per oz? The only reason im complaining is because its all sold out before i could get some 😑🖕lol
