Quick overview

This heirloom strain is notorious for its energetic (bordering on racy) buzz. Many are drawn to Durban by its lemony, licorice, and anise heavy nose- but most come back for the caffeine-like energy that comes along with it.

Durban x Dutch Skunk

Customers and patients seeking some true sativa need not look any further than Durban Poison from Dutch Passion Seed Company. One of the last true landrace sativas widely available, Durban Poison is said to come from unadulterated South African genetics that were brought to Holland and exclusively inbred. The result is one of the very few non-hybridized strains that is commercially available. Growers can expect fat, dense, light green colas and a 9-10 week flowering time from this highly coveted strain.

An abundance of d-limonene offers aromas of sweet citrus, earth, and hints of pine.

Sweet and earthy with notes of anise on the exhale.


Users can expect a sharp and fast onset, like a shot of espresso straight to the head. One hit offers a potent dose of heart-racing energy that can first be felt as a weightless and expansive headspace followed by caffeine-like jitteriness that calls for physical activity. Multi-tasking becomes a breeze on Durban Poison. Activities that involve cleaning, sorting or other forms of organization are effectively tacked on this highly productive strain. Morning and daytime use is encouraged to take full advantage of the boost in energy it offers.

Medical Uses
Medically, this strain holds the most potential in relieving depression. The emotional high and uplifting effects that it generates makes it a great choice for those looking to escape a mental fog or depressed state. Its ability to enhance productivity makes it a great strain to combine with more sedating strains.

Those looking for a boost in energy to accompany a heavier pain-relieving indica will find the focus it provides helpful in tackling day-to-day tasks and activities.

The healing process can be exhausting for those recovering from chronic illness and Durban Poison can help bring some zest and brightness back to one’s spirit. While the happiness that Durban Poison inspires can be used to help curb stress, its energetic effects can also amplify or mimic anxiety in those who have a sensitivity to caffeine-like raciness.

A great alternative to Durban Poison, but with lesser racy/energetic effects can be found in Super Lemon Haze or Sour Joker. Overall, this strain is all head with no body high, making it effective in treating headaches and other head pains.
