Durban Diesel

About Durban Diesel


Durban Diesel is a hybrid of two industry staples, Sour Diesel and Durban Poison. From this heritage, we know that the strain is heavily Sativa-dominant, though the exact percentage isn’t known. Regardless, it’s a fantastic strain for increasing productivity, invigorating your senses, and energizing your day. The strain’s fat buds deliver a fast-acting high that pushes you into cerebral zones of happy energy that are hard to match. Combine that with relief from what pains you and Durban Diesel might be one of your new favorites.

The strain’s terpenes include Beta-Myrcene and Beta-Caryophyllene, which create herby, spicy combinations, Pinene, which brings in the scent of pine and the woody outdoors (even a hint of chestnut), and the less often seen terpene, Cis-Nerolidol. This terpene has a delicate floral taste, with hints of greenness, citrus oils, a taste of apples, and an aftereffect of rose. Cis-Nerolidol is more often used in beauty products and fragrances, though its presence gives Durban Diesel a delicate palette that you might not expect based on the name.

The buds of the Durban Diesel plant grow chunky and round, thickly coated in crystal trichomes. They reveal the strain’s invigorating contents visually, growing to an impressive 80 inches if you treat them right. If you choose to grow the plant indoors, make sure you have the vertical space to handle it. Harvest time will be in around 74 days.

Durban Diesel’s physical effects vary depending on user experience. Many suggest that the strain has fatigue-relieving properties owing to its ability to refocus your mind. The focus can also distract you from stress and anxiety, which could be its own kind of pleasure at the end of a long work week. Still, other users suggest that the strain can make you feel jumpy in high doses. We advise starting out slow and letting the strain do the work!

If you have a refined palate, there’s no end to the flavors you’ll be detecting as you ratchet up your creative juices on a dose of Durban Diesel. Everything from pine to pepper to cinnamon to apple to citrus to rose to hops can be found and enjoyed by a clever nose. We can’t report any fuel taste, which is interesting, considering the strain’s heritage (and name). But we can confirm that this creative booster is uncommonly delicious, if you ever let it cross your path.
