With THC levels that can reach up to 25%, and don’t often fall below 18%, Durban Poison is known to be one of the most powerful strains out there. Being a pure sativa, happiness is one of the main effects users will feel. It is a cerebral stone, and while users have a tendency to feel more creative, it’s not a stone that will keep one in their own head for hours at a time without the ability to focus.
The strain also brings a very social high, making people feel as though they have boundless energy, and very talkative at the same time. These effects make Durban Poison a great strain to enjoy with friends.
Because Durban Poison is so uplifting and effective at improving one’s overall mood, this strain is great at treating depression and anxiety. But while that may be what it’s most known for, it also makes for a great pain reliever and is helpful when trying to treat nausea. Perhaps because of this, and because it’s well-known for giving users a serious case of the munchies, Durban Poison is also great for those that suffer from a lack of appetite.
Due to the high levels of THC, this strain is one of the best for creating edibles, although users should go slowly when consuming any food made with it, especially if they’re not accustomed to making or using edibles. Durban Poison also produces huge buds that are loaded with some of the fattest trichomes among all cannabis strains. This makes it a great strain to use when making and enjoying concentrates.
Of course for traditionalists, smoking and vaping Durban Poison will also allow users to feel the full effects of the strain. With these methods, the stone will last a typical two hours, although lengths of a three-hour stone are not unheard of when it comes to this strain.
