About Durban Poison

Durban Poison is a pure sativa originating in the South African port city of Durban. Despite its misleading name, Durban Poison is actually perfectly safe for human consumption! Its parental lineage is unknown, but the strain has gained worldwide popularity for its energizing and uplifting effects.

Durban Poison Strain Effects

As a full sativa strain, Durban Poison is best used in the morning for an energetic start to your day. The strain has a clear and focused high that is immediate to hit. With sights and sounds amplified, users may initially feel disoriented, but in the right atmosphere, these feelings will melt right into an active, buzzy head high.

Durban Poison’s effects are almost entirely cerebral and have no hints of heaviness or couchlock, making the strain perfect for creative endeavors—it’s a great way to think deeply during stimulating movies or intense pieces of music. The strain can also be extremely helpful in social settings, as it allows smokers to feel chatty and relaxed in their surroundings.

In fact, most users of Durban Poison report feeling:

  • Energetic
  • Focused
  • Uplifted
  • Creative
  • Talkative

The high from Durban Poison does not come on immediately. Instead, it works physically and mentally to help you concentrate and get creative. The strain is a prime candidate for those looking to get through tedious and mundane tasks, like cleaning or going grocery shopping.

It is also rumored that this strain speeds up the metabolism and allows you to burn more calories, which might make it a great strain for pre-workout routines. That said, this claim hasn’t been proven and is completely anecdotal.

Because the strain offers such a potent and cerebral experience, it may also have some undesirable effects on users, making them feel on edge, jittery, and even fatigued. If you suffer from THC-induced anxiety, it’s best to use caution when it comes to Durban Poison.

Durban Poison Strain Benefits

The strain is hugely popular for the reasons listed above, but it also has some medical benefits especially enjoyed by medicinal cannabis users struggling with:

  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Nausea

The strain’s medical benefits are more mental than they are physical. Its high brings a sense of mindfulness that has been reported to help those suffering from anxiety, stress, and depression. Because of its focusing properties, it may also help those with attention deficit disorders ward off distractions.

Durban Poison Strain Flavor – The Genetics & Terpenes

Durban Poison buds are medium to large with dense, compact structures typical of indica varieties. That said, their long shape is more reminiscent of sativa. The strain’s leaves are forest green in color and are adorned by bright orange pistils. Durban Poison buds are often coated in white trichomes, making them appear shiny and giving them an incredibly sticky texture.

Durban Poison’s smell is classically dank and punctuated by sweet hints. When opened, the flowers are pungent and skunky. The strain also gives off smells of pine and sage and has spicy and herbal hints.  

Durban Poison’s taste and aroma, as well as many of its uplifting and energizing effects, are all due to its terpene content. Terpenes are present in all plants; think about the taste of mint or the smell of lavender. In cannabis, terpenes determine the smell and flavor of your bud, and they’re also credited with participating in the entourage effect, a process where the effects of cannabinoids become enhanced by supporting compounds.

This means that your experience with certain strains is determined by its terpene profile. In Durban Poison, the main terpenes that produce its smell and effects are:

  • Terpinolene
  • Valencene
  • Myrcene
  • Camphene
  • Pinene
  • Ocimene
  • Limonene
  • Caryophyllene
  • Linalool
  • Humulene

Additionally, Durban Poison has moderately high levels of THC, which range between 15-25%. CBD and CBG are much less prominent in the plant, not even reaching levels of 1%. The strain contains around 0.62-0.9% CBD and CBG levels of 0.08-0.67%.

Similar Strains Available

Durban Poison is an elusive and rare strain that not all retailers carry. The strain is beloved around the world for its energizing and uplifting effects, making it a favorite among creatives and those with busy schedules. Despite its rarity and popularity, Durban Poison can be compared to other, more common strains.

Like Durban Poison, Green Crack has earthy flavors. They also share a plethora of effects, including boosts of energy, creativity, and happiness. That said, Green Crack contains slightly lower levels of THC than Durban Poison, averaging at around 16%.

Sour Diesel is another similar strain to Durban Poison. Both powerful sativa strains, they create uplifting and energetic effects for users. They both help with creative or artistic endeavors, creating a potent cerebral high ready to help users tackle any task ahead of them.

Information Regarding Growing Durban Poison

Because of its hardy genetics, Durban Poison is a moderately easy strain to grow, making it perfect for new growers to experiment with. Durban Poison plants can grow to reach 12 feet in height, making it best suited for outdoor growth in semi-humid climates with consistent temperatures ranging from 72 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. If grown indoors, cultivators will want to tame the strain’s height by bending and pruning branches in the vegetative stage.

Although the strain is easy to grow, it is susceptible to pests and fungi when grown outdoors, and even larger animals like rodents can come and shred your garden to pieces. If grown outdoors, it is advisable to fence the surrounding areas to keep bigger pests at bay. Visiting your garden frequently will also ensure no bugs are getting too comfortable around your plants.

The strain flowers quickly for a sativa, maturing at around 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and late September when grown outdoors. They also provide higher than average yields.


Brought to you all the way from South Africa, Durban Poison is the energizing, uplifting, focusing way to get stuff done. Whether you’re out with a new group of friends or at home tackling a huge load of laundry, this strain will give you the energy and creativity you need to thrive at anything you set your mind to.

Get poisoned with energy the Durban way today!
