Durban Poison

A unique sativa that has become cannabis royalty


About Durban Poison

Hailing from Durban, South Africa, this purebred sativa strain has been making waves for decades due to its high potency and severely stimulating head effect.

Durban Poison's history began when Ed Rosenthal took some South African bag seeds back to the U.S. from a trip and handed them off to Mel Frank who selectively bred the strain for its resin production and flowering time.

One of the most interesting facets of Durban Poison is its potency in THCV, a psychoactive cannabinoid that suppresses hunger and gives its user a burst of energy.

This strain's dense, sticky buds give off a fragrance of sweet grapes, citrus, and earth and generally have about 17-27% THC.

Durban Poison provides its patient with a particularly stimulating cerebral hit, motivating its user through the focused energy it provides while simultaneously dissolving all traces of pain.
