Durban Poison Strain Origins
This cannabis strain was named after Durban, South Africa, the city where it was born. It’s a pure landrace that’s always been well-known for its massive resin-filled glands.
Even with its strong African roots, the strain somehow made its way to the United States back in the 1970s thanks to an American pot enthusiast.
Today, it’s commonly used to create extracts, such as marijuana concentrates. Because this is a pure landrace that’s 100% Sativa, its characteristics are quite distinguishable from hybrid plants. For one thing, this strain has been known to reach 8 feet in height.

These are feminized seeds. Female plants, contrary to male plants, are the ones that actually produce weed. They start flowering when they receive less light per day, i.e. in the Fall, or when you manipulate the light cycle indoors.
Durban Poison Plants
When left to its own devices, this 100% Sativa plant can reach heights of up to 90 inches (7.5 feet)! Of course, indoor plants may be much shorter (which is likely a good thing, as there aren’t too many indoor growing areas that accommodate 8-foot plants).
These seeds produce leafy plants with generous green buds that are rich in resin and trichomes. Because of their height, the flowers much be trimmed and pruned regularly to avoid drooping branches that eventually snap and break. This includes removing all dead foliage and yellowing leaves. Pruning and trimming help your weed trees stay healthy and strong.
These Sativa seeds flourish best when grown outdoors in sunny environments.
If you are growing Durban Poison indoors, it is highly recommended to use a hydroponics setting rather than soil or other solid growing mediums in pots.
It is generally an easy plant to grow, although any hydroponics setup could prove tricky to someone who hasn’t tried it before. Durban Poison generally thrives best in an outdoor, sunny setting.
Flowering & Yield
On average, Durban Poison Feminized seeds flower fairly quickly.
Indoor growers can expect flowering to take place in about 7-9 weeks.
When grown outdoors, harvest time occurs around the end of September to mid-October.
Growing indoors should yield your about 13 ounces of usable cannabis per square meter. Outdoor growers can expect to yield about 16 ounces of usable marijuana per plant.
