In its intact state, this sample gave off strong Durban aromas, including anise, pungency and sweet notes. When dabbed, this sample tasted strongly of spicy-hash, black licorice with sweetness on the exhale. Very impressive expression of terpenes for a non-live resin wax.

Effects: The effects were a classic Durban power injection of 100% pure sativa. Provided intense clarity and energy. I personally found this batch to exhibit some of the most potent effects I’ve ever experienced from any form of Durban wax. I’m not sure why, since it’s a standard butane wax and while the THC levels are high, they aren’t unusually high. If I had to guess, I’d say it was the relatively high levels of terpenes that probably still existed in this very fresh batch. The potency, intensity and longevity kicked my ass. Newbies should steer clear of this one and everyone else should go slower than usual.
Duration of Effects: 2-3+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with fatigue and mood. May also help with ADD, ADHD, PTSD, depression, stress, migraines, bi-polar disorder, appetite, nausea, minor body and nerve pain, getting stuff done! (and more)
A superior example of a Durban Poison butane-derived wax in every way.
