#1 Featured Seed Bank: I Love Growing Marijuana
Operated by Robert Bergman, a veteran grower with over 25 years of growing experience in the Netherlands, ILGM has been successfully stealth shipping cannabis seeds worldwide, with an impressive distribution of prolific strains, offering feminized, fast flowering, autoflowering strains, and regular strains.
Its lineage originated from South Africa in the 1970s when a man named Ed Rosenthal tried to produce a new strain. His notes and strains were passed down eventually to Mel Frank, who then transferred some of his newly found B strains to “Sam the Skunkman.” Durban Poison, one of its parents being African Sativa, was created and flourished in Amsterdam for the first time.
Durban Poison is a 100% Sativa-dominant strain with a high THC level of 20%, useful for mood and concentration-related issues. Its high tends to generate creativity and productivity, inducing the consumer with a burst of energy and sociability. Some reviewers described it as the “espresso of strains” as it tends to keep a clear head. Most people consume this strain in the morning to reduce tiredness and enhance mood. It is also known to support those who are chronically disturbed by depression, PTSD, anxiety, relieve migraines, and to help those who need to remain focused.
Durban Poison delivers some unwanted adverse effects as well since it is so potent and cerebral. This can overpower users and make them feel jumpy or nervous and can even result in a sort of fast-paced “mental race,” which can make smokers feel neurotic or paranoid. This strain is definitely more suitable for daytime use than evening use, as its high usually lasts around two to three hours.
You should expect Durban Poison plants indoors to yield about 13 oz per sqm when cultivated indoors. On the other hand, expect this 100% Sativa plant to yield about 16 oz per sqm when grown outside. Growers will get to harvest viscous, big buds when cultivating these feminized seeds – your buds at 20% THC component will be superb, crystalized, and remarkably potent.
Durban Poison plants can reach up to 90 inches when left to its own devices. Naturally, indoor plants could be shorter. In addition, Durban Poison produces abundant plants with generous and resin-rich green buds. Their height requires flowers to be regularly trimmed and pruned to prevent dropping branches that inevitably break.
Durban Poison is an excellent grow for newcomers to cultivation due to its robust and time-tested genetics. Durban Poison seeds grow best in sunny conditions when grown outside. Although Hydroponics setting is strongly recommended instead of soil or any other solid growing mediums in containers, if you plan to cultivate Durban Poison indoors, this setup may be challenging for beginner growers or anyone who hasn’t cultivated using this type of growing medium before. Overall, it is normally a simple plant to grow.
In general, Durban Poison flourishes best in an outdoor and sunny setting. Because of its solid and established genetics, this plant is excellent for beginner growers. In sunny, semi-humid environments with regular steady temperatures of around 72-80 degrees Fahrenheit, Durban Poison crops can be successfully cultivated outside, reaching about 12 feet in height. This strain flowers remarkably rapidly for a sativa reaching maturity in around 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors, and in late September, when it is grown outdoors – thanks to its tested cultivation and internationally-designed genetics. Plants also reward growers with a higher yield than average.
Durban Poison seeds present a Sativa-lover with a range of sugary lemon-candy to spicy anise taste. It is also delightful, sophisticated, and loved by many patients and connoisseurs.
