The name of this strain, Durban Cookies, may sound familiar to many as it’s basically a celebrity child to two of the most notorious strains available on the cannabis market! A result of crossbreeding the ever popular and famed Durban Poison and Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) strains, Durban Cookies is a delicious and potent sativa dominant hybrid that is often hard to come by. A must try for its powerful effects as much as for its true rarity, when you see it, take advantage of one of the most delectable strains out there! Perfect for wake and bakes that are backed by a THC potency that tops up at 26% along with vanilla, pine and nut flavours, you sure do not want to miss out on this amazingly delicious and effective strain!
When using Durban Cookies, users will relatively quickly experience a jolt of creative energy, focus and a blissful uplifting happiness that will wash away all negative thoughts and moods. The state of euphoria will last throughout the high so it’s a great way to start off your day whether it’s filled with a bunch of tasks and chores, or if it’s a casual day and you’re looking for an artistic spark–ideal for go getters and creatives! These waves of peacefulness will have users feeling mentally relaxed, so Durban Cookies is great for medical users seeking to alleviate depression, anxiety, mood swings or stress. The sense of focus induced by this strain will also help manage symptoms of ADD/ADHD. Because of the strain’s super strong effects, Durban Cookies has made itself a popular choice amongst both recreational and medical cannabis users, and its energizing cerebral high makes it best used in the mornings or day time.
Durban Cookies consistently measures at 21% THC or above, with many reports showing that it averages at a staggering 26%! A sativa dominant hybrid, it carries a ratio of 70% sativa to 30% indica. Its impressive THC content and genetics can be attributed to its lineage. Durban Poison, a pure sativa strain, is itself 24% THC on average with 1% CBD and 1% CBN. Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) on the other hand is a 60% to 40% indica dominant hybrid with 28% THC and 1% CBD as well as 1% CBN. While these parent strains have amazing genetics, the child Durban Cookies truly stands out on its own as a powerful strain!
Appearance & Aroma
The nugs of Durban Cookies tend to be large, or even sometimes oversized, which is uncommon for sativas. They are mint green in colour with furry, hair-like orange pistils. They are finished with a nice frosty layer of trichomes and are super sticky due to how resinous they are! Plus, the strain is really as delicious as it looks with a medley of aromas ranging from earthy pine and spices to creamy, vanilla nuttiness. Upon smoking and exhale, however, users will taste a yummy dessert-like sweetness of nuts and mint that may remind them of Girl Scout Cookies, but unlike that parent strain, Durban Cookies also has notes of coffee! Who needs a morning brew when you’ve got this coffee flavoured strain to wake and bake to?!
