A rather dry and very dense sample for the strain, this Durban showed the typical big, round calyxes and low leaf coverage that the strain’s known for. The coloring was a mix of greens, with the calyxes starting light at the base and becoming dark… thin, bright orange pistils provide a contrast. The trichome coverage was solid, but the harvest seemed a bit early, with few visible ambers.
Not nearly as sweet as the smell, the taste was mostly along the chemical pine cleaner lines. Average expansion and harshness made this a middle-of-the-road smoking experience in those regards, good for any patient. Our inclination is that slightly more moisture would’ve helped the flavor some out a bit more, but it was still pretty solid. It burned down to a fluffy, light gray ash, indicating a very good flush.

While we wish it would’ve been slightly more moist to allow the flavors to creep out a bit more, we really enjoyed this Durban. The typical effects package of energy, mood elevation, and ocular relief was in full effect, as was that signature Durban smell. This is a strain that is good for almost any patient who likes a Sativa, aside from those who are extremely prone to anxiety, as it can be a little on the rushy side. A very solid initial entry by AMA… not the best Durban we’ve ever had, but close, and showing great potential.
