In its intact state, it smelled lightly of sweet anise. I drew on it unlit, and it expressed some Durban Poison flavor.  When smoked, this joint tasted mildly of anise. The joint seemed relatively fresh, but the flavors were one-dimensional; no spiciness or pungent sweetness typically exhibited by this strain.

        I have also reviewed additional cultivators' Durban Poison products. See Product Reviews for a complete list.

Effects: After smoking half of the joint, I did experience that unmistakable Durban dose of clean energy and cerebral stimulation. However, I found the effects to be less potent and long lasting as I would expect to experience after smoking 1/2 a joint. 

Duration of Effects: 1 hour

May Help With: Helped with mood. May also help with ADD, ADHD, PTSD, depression, stress, migraines, bi-polar disorder, appetite, nausea, minor body and nerve pain (and more)

Rating: 3.5/5
Within the context of a pre-rolled joint, this Durban Poison jay was in the good range. It seemed fresh but I thought the flavors and effects were somewhat underwhelming. This reviewer thinks it might be because the joint was made from a combo of bud and trim, but my assessment on the plant material could be wrong. In any event, for me, this joint’s flavors and effects were middle of the road.
