Where The Durban Poison Strain Is Grown
The Durban Poison strain is a cross between Dutch skunk and African sativa, which originates near Durban, South Africa’s second-largest city. The resulting hybrid was then backcrossed in the late 1970s by American breeder Ed Rosenthal with the African parent line. The result is the Durban Poison with a sativa content of 75%.
