Durban Punch: Energetic Sativa With Floral and Woody Overtones
Durban Punch was created to make Durban plants easier to grow and more bountiful. A 100% South African sativa hybrid, Durban Punch is the result of crossing a Durban Poison female with a Ciskei P3 male. With a racy and uplifting high, this strain could prove a bit too much for unseasoned smokers. For those up to the challenge, a mix of woody, anise, floral, and fruity notes can be expected on the nose and taste buds. With an average of 16–25% THC, and low levels of CBD and CBN, this strain is on the upper end of the potency spectrum.
In terms of growing, Durban Punch has been bred to develop a manageable height and medium–large yields, with a reduced flowering period (for a Durban sativa).
Aroma, Flavour, and Effect of Durban Punch: "Knockout" Flavours and Euphoric Effects
Given the strong Durban influence, it comes as no surprise that Durban Punch harnesses, and intensifies, its inherent floral, woody, and spicy anise notes. Definitely considered a savoury smoke, the Ciskei adds to this a welcome bit of fruit to balance out the profile. Once the cannabinoids and terpenes have made their way into the system, users can expect a characteristically "sativa" high defined by euphoria, a short-term increase in energy, and a boost in creativity.
Growing Durban Punch: Durban Cultivation Made Easy
This sativa is a good candidate for both indoor and outdoor growing. The breeders made a vested effort to reduce the flowering time of the original Durban Poison while improving its production potential, so growers in less-than-ideal climates may be able to give this one a go. Plants generally need about 11–13 weeks to flower, with the F1 version taking, on average, about a week longer to finish than the BC1 version. The plant displays thin, green leaves and is happiest outdoors in a mild climate. When all is said and done, yields are medium–large in good conditions.
