Durban Poison grows well indoors and outdoors even at higher latitudes in northern European summers. It is a very mould and pest-resistant strain. When grown indoors flowering is completed in 8 – 9 weeks. Outdoor plants can grow to be very large reaching 3 meters in height before being ready to harvest in late September or very early October before the weather turns. The structure, bud development and potent, clear, uplifting, energising high are all clearly sativa in style. Only the darker green leaves betray its small proportion of indica genetics. It has an appetising flavour of aniseed/liquorice with notes of clove.

The buds of Durban Poison are very dense for a Sativa. Growers can expect vigorous plants with numerous side branches. Most phenotypes have the tendency to stretch greatly, so be aware if height restrictions in your grow room could be a potential issue.
Durban Poison is a classic variety suitable for all conditions
Durban Poison is a classic indoor and outdoor variety, tough enough for outdoor cannabis growing even in extreme Northern/Southern latitudes. Durban Poison seeds come originally from South Africa and were inbred over many years during the 70’s. With each following generation, Durban Poison became increasingly adapted to the windy and rainy conditions of Northern Europe. Outdoor she has the potential to become really big. Heights above 3m are not unusual. Indoors she will stretch a great deal, so some form of height management is advised.
Durban Poison strain info: The perfect all-rounder!
Durban Poison is a pure landrace Sativa dominant variety which originates from South Africa.
The plants may initially show wide Indica-style leaves. But during the latter part of the flowering period the growth pattern allows the Sativa dominance to show long flowers pierced by slim Sativa-style leaves.
Durban Poison has become a corner stone strain in today’s cannabis market. This Sativa dominant variety originates from the South African city of Durban and stood at the base of the famous GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) heritage/line, where strains such as Sherbet and Gelato were derived.
Durban Poison is ready to harvest after around 8-9 weeks of 12/12 indoor bloom. Outdoors she can reach maximum heights of 3-4m and is harvested around early/middle Autumn.
The genetics used to create Durban Poison ensure the following characteristics:
– A tough and vigorous plant. Easy to grow and suitable for all growing conditions
– A dense and slim Sativa style plant and bud structure
– A unique terpene profile with oversized resin glands
Durban Poison is an old-school Dutch Passion classic. Available in both regular and feminized seeds.
Durban Poison effects
Durban Poison gained worldwide popularity due to its effects which are typically Sativa. It provides the user with a strong, uplifting and energising effect. It is the perfect strain to stay productive throughout the day or to complete creative tasks. It will put you in an elevated mood where you will still be able to face the outside world without feeling self-conscious or paranoid. The initial burst of energy can be followed by some more sedative effects if you smoke/vape larger amounts. The high is relatively long-lasting.
How to grow Durban Poison
We recommend a shorter veg period compared to most Indica’s or Hybrid varieties if you are growing these plants indoors without the use of grow techniques to control height. Durban Poison tends to stretch a great deal, often doubling or tripling in size once in bloom. A veg period of 3-4 weeks should be sufficient to get decent sized plants. When growing with only a few plants on a m2 it is recommended to use the SCROG technique.
When growing her outdoors, make sure there is ample space available because this lady can take over your garden plot!
During early growth the plants can show more Indica-style leaves. A more sativa-style image and leaf appearance is seen during flowering. Indoor growers will notice the transition as soon as the light cycle is switched to 12/12. Outdoors as the days get shorter, the Sativa dominant heritage becomes more evident and her true colours appear.
Stems are tough and durable. They can easily be manipulated without the risk of breaking. During early flowering is it recommend to do some leaf tucking. This puts the biggest leaves underneath the buds which they once covered.
The flowering time is about 8-9 weeks. In combination with the recommended veg phase it will take around 11-13 weeks from seed to harvest.
The yield of Durban Poison
Durban Poison produces XXL harvests of old-school quality cannabis; between 450 and 650 grams per m2 is possible. The plant will carry heavy, resinous and dense buds.
Our expert advice
Durban Poison is a perfect strain if you are looking for a well known old-school favourite with heavy yields which is easy to grow both indoors and outdoors. This variety suits both beginners and expert growers. For indoor growing we recommend topping or fimming as it will increase the speed of the Durban Poison lateral growth. She will really shine when you use grow techniques such as LST, bending, supercropping and scrogging. This will increase yields greatly and it will make her height more manageable in an indoor environment. Make sure to give her enough root space. This will increase the speed of growth, as well as the eventual size and yield.
