A pure sativa originating from the South African port city of Durban. This ones fire!
Durban Poison is an energetic, focused strain of bud. It tastes like a sweet, earthy, and piney mix of euphoria; producing uplifting, creative, and happy sensations.
This is the perfect strain for daytime smoking as it is a pure sativa with a clear minded high that helps me stay productive all day long. I’ve never experienced a comedown after smoking Durban. In fact, it’s the closest thing I’ve found to mimic the effects of Adderall — I’m not saying you should stop your prescription and just start smoking, but for me it’s a preferred natural option over synthetic drugs which leave me feeling dull, overstimulated, and occasionally cranky.
Another little known fact about Durban Poison is that it contains THCV — Tetrahydrocannabivarin, which is an appetite suppressant. In contrast to THC, THCV may dull the appetite. This may be good for consumers focused on weight loss, but THCV should be avoided by patients treating appetite loss or anorexia.
A little more about THCV:
THCV may help with diabetes. Research shows promise in THCV’s ability to regulate blood sugar levels and reduce insulin resistance.
THCV may reduce panic attacks. It appears to curb anxiety attacks in PTSD patients without suppressing emotion.
THCV may help with Alzheimer’s. Tremors, motor control, and brain lesions associated with Alzheimer’s disease appear to be improved by THCV, but research is in progress.
THCV stimulates bone growth. Because it promotes the growth of new bone cells, THCV is being looked at for osteoporosis and other bone-related conditions
Medicinally it has been used to treat stress, depression, fatigue, pain, and headaches. However, be aware some users report dry mouth, dry eyes, dizzy, or occasionally anxiety.
