Durban Poison

Sativa

Genetics (African Landrace Strain)

This landrace strain comes from the South African city, Durban. A longtime consumer favorite, Durban Poison brings the ultimate uplifting experience. Every trichome dusted nug is lime green with deep emerald hues laced throughout it, allowing the orange pistils to pop on each well-manicured bud. Grizzly Peak’s Durban Poison has a distinct black licorice smell with creamy sweet notes that lingers on your palate once smoked. The dynamic flavor profile has hints of lemon and anise that welcome the clear-headed effects to come. Most consumers who love Durban Poison regard it as the epitome of a sativa, with extreme euphoria and focus that remains stimulating during the entire high. Ideal for cleaning the house, errands, and creative projects, this classic and potent strain will never disappoint when you need a refreshing and energetic boost.

More about this strain: Durban Poison

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.
