Durban Poison Stash Cartridge | 1g
This is a global phenomenon. Originally from the South African port city of Durban, Durban Poison is an ideal sidekick for everyday adventurers exploring the outdoors, getting creative, or just getting through from 9 to 5. It’s gained a loyal following all over the world for a sweet smell and energetic, uplifting, and focusing effects. Never has an exotic solution been so close to home.
Strane has no pretense and plenty of personality. You won’t find a bunch of terms you don’t understand, products you don’t need or prices you can’t afford. From a rotating selection of flower to a range of oil cartridges, PAX Pods and go-to concentrates, these are products designed for the average day—and making it better. But don’t let the simplicity fool you. Cannabis cannasseurs will be equally pleased with the strains of Strane—and the premium products of Strane Live. For all of our products, a system of "eye-cons" guides you to sativas (open eye), hybrids (half-open eye) or indicas (closed eye).
Strane Live makes good on the promise of its name. *Live* extracts become premium, terpene-forward products for consumers who know the difference. In case you’re new to the world of live resin concentrates, welcome. You’ve arrived. These products are made from freshly harvested flower that’s frozen before and during the extraction process, maintaining all the goodness of the plant itself: tasty terpenes, healing properties and the full effect you’ve been hoping for.
Durban Poison has deep roots in the Sativa landrace gene pool. The strain’s historic phenotypes were first noticed in the late 1970s by one of America’s first International strain hunters, Ed Rosenthal. According to cultivation legend, Rosenthal was in South Africa in search of new genetics and ran across a fast flowering strain in the port city of Durban. After arriving home in the U.S., Rosenthal conducted his own selective breeding process on his recently imported seeds, then begin sharing. Rosenthal gave Mel Frank some of his new South African seeds, and the rest was cannabis history.
Frank, who wrote the “Marijuana Grower’s Guide Deluxe" in 1978, modified the gene pool to increase resin content and decrease the flowering time. In search of a short-season varietal that could hit full maturation on the U.S. East Coast, Frank’s crossbreeding efforts resulted in two distinct phenotypes, the “A” line and “B” line. The plant from Frank’s “A” line became today’s Durban Poison, while the “B” line was handed off to Amsterdam breeder David Watson, also known as “Sam the Skunkman.”
Durban Poison has a dense, compact bud structure that’s typical of landrace Indica varieties, but the flowers’ elongated and conical shape is more characteristic of a Sativa.
