Durban Poison is known for its spicy/sweet anise-like smell and taste and its clear-headed cerebral effect. Though it’s a (normally) pure sativa, most versions finish fairly quickly and don’t stretch like crazy.

Durban Poison, is a pure sativa cannabis strain that’s known for its pleasurable sweet, earthy and piney smell and flavor that leaves a citrusy aftertaste. Durban is sweet to the smell with an earthy undertone with a touch of pine. This smell is produced by the dominant aroma and taste producing terpene D-Limonene. Limonene is a terpene that is commonly found in citrus fruits, which is what causes the dominant sweeter smells. A “pure” Sativa, Durban Poison’s THC content averages between 16-25%. CBD content, however, is notably low, rarely exceeding 0.02%.
