Major Fragrances and Terpenes of the Durban Kush Strain

The buds of the Durban Kush strain give off a lavender aroma with a heavy amount of pungent pepper notes. The flavor is similar and contains a strong odor of herbal spices. The excessive pungency is caused by the camphene and pinene terpenes, while floral undertones are delivered by terpinolene. New stoners surprised by savory overtones and extreme spiciness may find the smoke a little harsh.

Typical Effects and Therapeutic Uses

As an evenly-balanced hybrid, the Durban Kush weed strain has taken the best of both worlds and comes with a combo of effects that Indica and Sativa fans adore. It provides a mild high that brings a lifted sense of happiness to potheads. As euphoria grows, people are pulled deeper into relaxation without sedation or couch-lock. Some users may experience a touch of creativity and focus. Others feel motivated with a talkative tendency. An appetite increase is frequent, but single individuals may consider it a downside.

Given that this cannabis is so multifaceted, medical consumers often turn to it to help with many ailments. Their usual concerns include:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lack of appetite

Side effects caused by the Durban Kush strain are mild, at least regarding the benefits it provides to medical patients and recreational users. The most commonly reported reactions are:

  • Heightened sensory perception
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Dizziness

This Mary Jane relieved my chronic fatigue well and I was able to do my daily tasks. Good weed but can be very potent so I take the lowest doses and use my bong. I want to try switching to edible ones because the high lasts longer.
