Double Durban Kush: Stevie
Case: Double Durban Kush CO2 Sap Oil (extract)
File Date: 08/15/2017
Case No: 0136
Method of Extraction: Carbon dioxide (C02)
About CO2 Extraction
Carbon Dioxide, or CO2, occurs naturally in our environment: whenever we breathe, with decomposition, and even through ocean release. We find CO2 in our sodas and it’s used as an industrial solvent for creating everything from food extracts to fragrances. It’s known as ‘dry ice’ in its solid form. CO2 is considered safe by the FDA and non-toxic
The generic process is typically referred to as ‘supercritical CO2 extraction’ whereby CO2 is converted to its supercritical state (i.e., having liquid properties while remaining in a gaseous state) by applying very cold temps and pressure and is then used as a solvent to strip the resinous trichomes from the cannabis plant material. All of which occurs in a sophisticated CO2 extraction machine.
Form: Sap Oil
Type: Sativa-Dominant Hybrid (% breakdown unknown)
Genotype: Double Durban Kush = [Durban Poison X OG Kush] a.k.a. Grace’s Cookies X Durban Poison
From this lineage, you can see where the name was born. Nature’s Grace has a “Grace’s Cookies” proprietary strain, which they’re crossing here with another Durban Poison. I do not know if this second Durban Poison is the same phenotype as the cut used to breed their Grace’s Cookies.
Cultivator: Nature’s Grace and Wellness

TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.
Characteristics: A pristine, semi-opaque, sunburst-yellow sample with a thick, sap-like consistency. Imagine a much thicker than normal honey. It could also be described as thick, sticky and gel-like.
Terpene Profile: I have requested the lab report for this product. will provide the specific terpene levels when/if I get the labs.
In its intact state, this CO2 sap oil emitted a very light aroma of sweet hash pungency. When dabbed, this sample tasted intensely of mostly sweet anise from all of the Durban influence with hints of sweet hash and herbal notes on the exhale. A tasty experience.
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful experience. Dabbing this sap oil at high temps degrades the flavor significantly and will make it aggressively “burn off” instead of gently vaporize. To learn how you can use this terpenes data to better your health, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: Let me ask you – Are you strapped in? Is your helmet on? Is it on tight? That’s good. Please remove all loose jewelry and any wigs or toupees. It starts as a wave to the dome that then migrates quickly straight to the eyes, as if you’ve just broken the sound barrier. Endless waves of euphoria and energy from head to toe. Experienced Users of Extracts with High Tolerances: Do not let the THC numbers fool you; this low 80s% THC feels low 90s THC levels.
I do not recommend this product for those new to medical cannabis or for those prone to raciness or anxiety from Sativas.
Duration of Effects: 2.5 - 3.5+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with any fatigue, that’s for sure! May also help with some forms of mild aches and pains, depression, appetite, nausea (and more).
This CO2 oil is exceptionally clean, flavorful and potent. A superb quality extract in every way. Those who love pure Sativas and Durban Poison may come to love and respect this sap oil.

And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
