Durban Poison. A name that resonates with stoners old and young, and one of the most celebrated Sativa landraces of all time. Well, thanks to advancements in cannabis breeding techniques, and a sprinkling of Ruderalis genetics, we are now proud to offer the very first autoflowering version of this beast of a cultivar!
One of the main reasons why many growers choose to skip pure Sativa strains is the fact the flowering period can take up to 14 weeks. Once you add in the veg growth time, that's around 20 weeks of growth.
Not here! Not only will Durban Poison Auto take just 8 weeks from seed to harvest, but this ridiculously potent auto offering also boasts up to 24% THC, a huge yield potential, and just straight-up uplifting Sativa goodness!
Sativa strains are somewhat infamous for being on the trickier side of the cultivation scale. Tall growing, nutrient thirsty, and with flowering times that can sometimes be twice as long as their Indica kin. But with Durban Poison Auto, growing is about as easy as it can be.
Thanks to the autoflowering genetics, the flowering period is a mere 8 weeks from seed to harvest, and you can expect above-average yields for an auto. Anywhere between 400-500gr/m² is anything but unusual for indoor crops, and outdoors you'll be looking at a minimum of one hundred grams per plant, maybe more.
During the Vegetative Stage:
Durban Poison Auto grows vigorously during its vegetative stage. Because of the Sativa dominance, it grows quite tall, quickly despite being an auto, so bear this in mind when it comes to vertical space. Its foliage is quite dense, with long slender leaves but the internodal distance is wide. Implementing LST (Low-Stress Training) techniques, like Scrog, can be beneficial to ensure even canopy growth. It's advisable to start these techniques early in the vegetative stage and discontinue as the plant nears flowering. As for nutrition, introduce a balanced vegetative formula once the plant establishes its root system, transitioning to flowering phase nutrients once preflowers appear.
During the Flowering Stage:
Preflowers on Durban Poison Auto typically become visible around week 3-4 after the seedling breaks ground. Given its Sativa dominance, the plant maintains its tall, slender stature throughout flowering, producing elongated buds often adding 50% to its total height. These buds grow in dense clusters along the stems, with a vibrant green hue and an unmistakable spicy aroma. Being a moderate feeder, it's essential to feed the plant a low nitrogen mix, ensuring a balance of phosphorus and potassium. Begin this nutritional regimen as soon as preflowers appear, tapering off as you approach the final two weeks of flowering.
Is Durban Poison Autoflower Indica or Sativa?
Durban Poison Autoflower is a Sativa-dominant plant. It contains no Indica lineage being made up solely of Sativa and Ruderalis genetics.
Is Durban Poison Autoflower Suitable for Beginners?
Durban Poison is easy to grow which makes it an excellent choice for beginners. This strain is forgiving of minor mistakes, coupled with its mold-resistant trait, ensuring a smoother growing journey. It will do well both indoor and outdoor with only a small amount of experience and dedication.
The first feeling you get when smoking Durban Poison is a very pleasing head rush. It is not aggressive or intense but can definitely be felt as a wave of good energy. This buzz leads to increased creativity, clarity, and a general sense of wellbeing. Physically, instead of couch-locking effects typical of some Indicas, Durban Poison promotes movement and activity. Its unique Sativa/Ruderalis ratio gives a stimulating, yet not overwhelmingly intense, harmony between the mind and body.
With a THC content ranging between 20%-24% and a minimal CBD presence, it's reported to assist with issues like depression, stress, and pain, offering relief and a sense of well-being.
How Strong is Durban Poison?
The high THC percentage of 20%-24% and CBD content less than 1% means Durban Poison packs a punch. This elevated THC content gives an all-encompassing and exhilarating high, offering both clarity of thought and a tangible energy boost. Users can anticipate a definite case of the munchies when enjoying this strain, so make sure you have your snacks on hand.
Does Durban Poison Autoflower Make You Sleepy?
Durban Poison typically doesn't induce drowsiness. Instead, users often report feelings of invigoration and alertness, making it more suited for daytime use or when seeking a stimulating experience.
Another reason why some growers seem to prefer Indica-dominant genetics is the flower structure. Sativa cultivars have a reputation for being a little less dense, but that is just par for the course. Are you going to get rock-hard nugs with this strain? No, probably not, but what you will get is some of the most fragrant and flavorful buds you can find, with a more than decent density.
What Does Durban Poison Autoflower Taste And Smell Like?
Again, this auto version of the South African classic is perfectly in line with its namesake. Sweet, earthy, and spicy flavors blend together perfectly on the inhale to provide a truly unique smoking experience. The high is uplifting without being overwhelming, creative without being too spacey, and mentally stimulating without being overly cerebral. Just a perfect blend of old meets new!
Smell-wise, Durban Poison Auto is exactly in line with its photoperiodic counterpart. That is, a sweet and earthy aroma with a hint of spice. Fans of the original Sativa strain will immediately recognize this scent, and it's one of the most classically stanky choices on offer today.
What Are The Terpenes In Durban Poison Autoflower?
The primary terpenes in Durban Poison are Terpinolene, Myrcene, and Ocimene. These compounds are responsible for its spicy, sweet aroma, influencing both its distinct flavor and scent. Terpenes, naturally occurring in many plants, contribute immensely to a strain's unique taste and fragrance profile.
There is something truly special about pure Sativa options, and Durban Poison stands out as a true good in this realm. When the breeders told us they had an auto version on the way, we couldn't have been more pumped, but also slightly apprehensive. But boy oh boy, have they outdone themselves here! This strain needs to be grown by every self-respecting cultivator, no doubt about it.
