It is a cross of South Africa's famous Durban Poison with a Skunk #1.
Early Durban is very sativa dominant with the potential to grow quite large and it also has a comparatively short flowering period of about 8 weeks which means that grown outdoors in e.g. Holland it will be ready to harvest by the beginning of October. It is also an easy strain to grow indoors where its size can be restricted by forcing flowering earlier. THC levels have been measured at 18%. Early Durban has a lovely aniseed flavour and a smooth. easy-going, somewhat cerebral sativa high.
