Strain Integrity

According to Strainy, ” Durban Diesel by Ministry of Sativa is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain. It is a cross between Durban Poison and Sour Diesel, resulting in a potent and uplifting experience. This strain contains terpenes such as Myrcene, Farnesene, Limonene, and Linalool, which contribute to its unique aroma and effects. With its lineage and terpene profile, Durban Diesel Pack offers a stimulating and energizing high, perfect for daytime use. ”

From the OCS, ” What happens when you combine two of the best sativa’s on the planet? You get Durban Diesel. Durban Diesel is clearly a cross between Durban Poison x Sour Diesel. The end product is a chunky, trichome covered bud and a smooth, creamy smoke that will keep you coming back for more. Our current batch of Durban Diesel is highly potent with 3.6% terpenes. The myrcene-dominant cross elegantly combines the gassy and funky profile of the Diesel with the minty sweet Durban.

great for Partying

Durban Diesel by Ministry of Sativa (West Island Culture) packaged on August 18, 2023, with 33.03% THC 3.66% Total Terpenes and a mild floral herbaceous earthy scent.  Our test amount was 0.26 gram.

The “high” starts with a euphoric awareness growing with each inhalation.  By the end of the session, Durban Diesel’s effects were on Full Throttle.  Over the first 10 minutes, Durban Diesel unleashed a cerebrally charged and highly elevated euphoric consciousness propelling us to the stratosphere.  It is a Sativa!

In the great outdoors, Durban Diesel started with a strong euphoric wakefulness and motivation to do something with an upbeat view of the World.  While Durban Diesel’s “high” is an Eyes Wide Open type of “high,” we discovered a Laser Focus is not part of the wakeful expression.

Activity pairing is best as a coffee replacement.  Durban Diesel is a Social Sativa that can excel in a Party environment.

Would we buy this again?  Maybe.  We use Sativa primarily for productivity, which requires a Laser Focus with a clear mental framework.  This Durban Diesel with a hazy focus is better for a Party environment.  Durban Diesel by Ministry of Sativa, however, is a well rendered Flower that does deliver is own unique profile.

On an investment note, Ministry of Sativa brand is an interesting strategy to get Consumers’ attention.  As Sativa fans, we would definitely continue to keep an eye on this LP and their future products.  We are now waiting for the Ministry of Indica.
