    No Durban Poison?

    • Fier Québecois

      Durban poison has the nickname of cannabis espresso for its energizing effect that awakens and not for its taste that goes well with a coffee. Surely that Poison Ivy, tastes and smells like Durban Poison, but not with coffee.

  • Matthew Swartz

    Amherst Sour Diesel is definitely a coffee-like strain: one hit and I’m like “whoa…now I’m awake”.

  • Devilsadovoc8

    Obama kush has coffee like notes and less sleepy than bubba

  • Rustin

    Chocolope all day!!!

  • Dante-the-cat

    Super lemon haze does that for me.
