Durban Berry is an exotic hybrid breed between the Durban Poison and Rocky Mountain Blueberry that is an evenly balanced hybrid between the indica and sativa strains. Patients report a feeling of creativity and an upbeat high that still allows for functionality. It delivers a delicious lemon and berry aroma with a citrus flavor that can be tasted. Its psychedelic effects can be detected just after a few doses of the lemon-infused vapor due to the high average-THC content of the strain. While it gives a very uplifting high with a laser-sharp focus, Durban Berry should not be underestimated as the euphoric feeling grows without a ceiling, which can aggravate severe anxiety and cause an increased heart rate.
Durban Berry delivers a high THC content with an average CBD content. This ratio of both cannabinoids gives a balanced mind/body high. The creative energy and eclectic uplifting effects of this strain makes it perfect for alleviating pain while maintaining the patient’s ability to perform daily tasks. This means medical cannabis patients are able to take a walk around the park, not feeling pain while enjoying the uplifting and euphoric effects of the strain during the walk.
Durban Berry is also enjoyed recreationally by people who have day jobs or things to do and prefer to take a few doses in order to take advantage of the euphoric feeling without the characteristic ‘stoned’ feeling of cannabis indica.
While the Durban Poison half of the strain is native to South Africa, Durban Berry is grown in the US, mostly cultivated indoors due to its susceptibility to being damaged by pests. Visually, it has tightly packed buds that are medium-green in color, with dark brown hairs lightly interspersed.
Durban Berry is a balanced mix of approximately 50% indica and 50% sativa with none of the species involved being dominant or recessive.

Medical Benefits of Durban Berry
Durban Berry gives the typical energetic and creativity-infused high of its parent, the Durban Poison. This gives it an advantage in treatment of medical conditions, as it does not immobilize its patients or make them sleepy and can therefore be administered during normal daily activities. Durban Berry is usually used in the treatment of:
- Chronic Pain
- Sickle Cell Anemia
- Loss of Appetite
- Chemotherapy (Side Effects)
Durban Berry has a very pungent, sweet-smelling, fruity fragrance, reported to be berry or citrus- like, with a characteristic citrus and lemon flavor that’s slightly peppery and tangy. The ‘lemony’ and citrus scent is due to the presence of the terpenes limonene, myrcene, and linalool. Myrcene lowers resistance along the blood-brain barrier, allowing the THC to act faster, and this is also responsible for the early detection of the psychedelic effects after just a few doses. Limonene contributes to the uplifting effects of the strain while Linalool helps to reduce the effects of stress and depression.
Pinene and Beta-carophyllene are also present and are responsible for the slightly peppery taste. Carophyllene is also great for inflammatory conditions and autoimmune disorders because of its ability to bind to a cannabinoid receptor known as CB2. This provides an alternative for people dealing with chronic pain, who rely on more dangerous, and habit-forming opioids.
