Khalifa Genetics presents 80s Durban Poison, a legendary cannabis strain from the northern coastal belt of Durban, South Africa. The infamous Durban Poison is known to all for its pure sativa potency, but the origins of this near-extinct species are shrouded in mystery.

Our friend Ryan, passionate strain hunter from South Africa, obtained some old seeds from his dadโ€™s best friend. That friend used to grow and sell Durban Poison back in the 1980s. While going through the storage area of his house, he found old seeded Durban Poison buds. He then immediately gave the seeds (about 200 in total) to Ryan as he was aware of Ryanโ€™s preservation work at the โ€œLove of Landraceโ€ collective. Being over 30 years old, only 20 seeds popped and only 13 were able to break the ground.

This 80โ€™s Durban Poison is therefore the real deal as it has never been hybridised with any modern strain. Growers can expect very different plants from the Dutch Durban Poison.

Coming from a very humid area, Durban Poison offers great mould resistance. Being very hardy and vigorous, it is also extremely pest-resistant. This strain stands tall and wide, boasting a height of 4m (13ft) with branches reaching out in a creeper-like structure. During flower this strain gives off strong aromas of pepper with a tinge of passion fruit. Like most African sativas, it thrives planted in the ground in early Spring and has a flowering time of up to 18 weeks outdoors. The branches have small popcorn foxtailing buds leading to a large cola at the top of the branches. Due to the size of this long-flowering sativa you can expect high yields of a pure quality African sativa.

80โ€™s Durban Poison produces a highly potent sativa experience that enhances creativity with clear-headedness and suppresses appetite. It lasts longer then your average smoke and boasts a THC reading of 16%.

Be it for preservation or hybridisation, these genetics are worth saving and this strain has it all.
