Strain Feature: Durban Poison Medical Marijuana Florida

As close to a pure Sativa as one can get, Durban Poison Medical Marijuana is a phenotype originating from South Africa. It is a great daytime strain, with clear, functional effects that brings about creativity, sociability, and improves one’s overall mood. This landrace strain is very energetic and is considered as one of the more pure-feeling Sativa varieties widely available on the market.

A landrace strain is a type of cannabis strain that has developed over centuries in a particular natural environment. Different cannabis cultivars that have grown, inbred and adapted to very specific geographical locations are pure cannabis strains.

Durban Poison Medical Marijuana first gained attention in the late 1970s when one of America’s first international strain hunters, Ed Rosenthal, found it in the port city of Durban, South Africa. Eventually, he passed his strains down to Mel Frank, who then passed a few of these newfound “B” strains to “Sam the Skunkman” in Amsterdam and the rest was history. 


Durban Poison Medical Marijuana is a landrace strain from South Africa. 


On average the THC percentage of Durban Poison Medical Marijuana ranges from 15%-25%. This can vary depending on the environment the plant is grown in.

Durban Poison has a strong, distinct smell which makes it stand out from any strain similar to it. It has notes of fruit that almost remind one of smelling sweet candy – almost like a combination of candied lemons and anise.
