Strain Spotlight: Durban Dream
Durban Dream is a local favorite of MÜVer’s. The cultivar has been in the Florida market for two years, fueling patients to stay active and enjoy the Florida weather, water, and whimsical nature the state has to offer. The uplifting effects of Durban Poison crossed with the body relaxing effects of Blue Dream ensure an experience that’s elevated without the racy cerebral effects of using the straight Durban Poison on its own.
Fellow Floridians has a lot to say about Durban Dream and the ways this happiness-inducing strain can elevate moods. Having been described as “blissful nirvana,” from a loyal MÜV patient, you can start to get a glimpse into the fantasy like-state of Durban Dream.
Everything You Need to Know About Durban Dream
As a cross of Durban Poison and Blue Dream, Durban Dream is long-time cannabis consumer's fantasy strain. What we mostly define as a hybrid cultivar many patients will say it leans to the sativa side- which is not unexpected for Durban Poison lovers. So, for Floridians wondering what strain is most like Durban Poison, Durban Dream is the answer.
Inducing effects of energy and euphoria, long-time and newly registered patients alike can attest to the creativity fueled by Durban Dream’s uplifting effects. Really getting patients into gear for workouts, gaming, and any other activity that suits their fancy when in need of a pick me up. The cannabinoids present in Durban Dream aren’t the only factors contributing to the effects of the strain, terpenes present in the sought-after cultivar are also something to know and consider.
Durban Dream Strain Appearance, Scent, and Taste
Durban Dream is a mix of light green and emerald colors with light orange hairs densely covered in trichomes. The nugs have an almost sugar-coated look with the amount of trichomes perfectly placed across the buds. Truer to its Durban Poison cross, Durban Dream is very heavy on the Durbs. The smell of spicy and sweet anise from this pungent cultivar hits you in the face when you open a jar. The taste of the sweet berry on the inhale and spicy anise on the exhale ensures patients will not only quickly smoke up what they have but leave them aching for more until their next stop at MÜV.
Terpenes in Durban Dream
Many terpenes are abundant in most cannabis strains, but most have a primary group of about 3-5 terpenes that contribute a lot to the effects, taste, and scents of the strain, and Durban Dream is no exception, with primary terps including:
- Myrcene – herbal, earth, and fruit; aiding in sleep, protects against DNA damage
- Terpinolene – floral, fresh, and woodsy; sedative, antibacterial, antifungal
- Ocimene - sweet, herbaceous, citrus, wood; uplifting, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative
- Caryophyllene - pepper, earth; reduces inflammation, pain relief, anti-viral, reduces gene stress
For those Floridians who haven’t tried Durban Dream yet, you can expect a little taste of sweet berry like blueberries, slight citrus undertones, and hints of spice and herb. While the smell is also borderline sweet, it does have hints of pine and spicy-sweet anise notes filling not just your nostrils but your room, too.
