Duraflame has uncanny power, the power to relax, calm, and uplift you during even the most stressful evenings. With a THC level that can reach 32%, Duraflame confidently places itself in a tier of cannabis that only the most experienced users should approach. The flavor is pungent, herbal, and soaked in berries, and the effects are just as potent. Continue reading to learn about the benefits, qualities, and cautions of the Duraflame strain, an Indica-dominant hybrid (70/30) born and bred in California.
The Duraflame strain is a cross between Fire OG and Lucky Charms, which gives it a fruity, herbal flavor that has a pungent onset that tastes like berries and earth. On the exhale, the strain is powerful but earthy and even floral, with a scent that the nugs give off even before you start burning them. Terpineol is the terpene responsible for that pungent earth flavor while Phellandrene supplies the berry and spicy-herbal tastes. Traces of Linalool, Carene, and more round out a diverse terpene profile that gives Duraflame the manly scent of the earthy outdoors. Flavors of apricot and sweet flowers can also be detected by astute noses, particularly on the exhale.
The plant flowers in around 52-64 days, with a maximum outdoor and indoor height of 60 inches, so watch for that. The buds are dark red and green, with dark fiery hairs and thick, resiny crystal trichomes that make Duraflame a choice strain for growers who want to source their own concentrates. The side effects of this strain vary between users, but its high THC content ensures that experience with strong cannabis is an asset when you want to delve into Duraflame. The most commonly reported conditions include dry eyes, dry mouth, panic attacks, and hunger. This is why the strain should be kept among experienced users.
The strain’s positive effects include a high that relaxes you right at the onset, chasing away negative thoughts and replacing depression and pain with uplifting calm, earthy and spicy. The strain’s relaxing properties have a way of flattening a muscle spasm and curbing anxiety, though the strain may also cause anxiety in inexperienced users. If you’re ready for it, Duraflame can melt off a long week of work with potency and well-bred effects (and berries). Just take it slowly and let it build.
