In a world where everything is so transparent, the cool thing to do is maintain a little mystery — and Orange Sherbet has it in spades. The unknown origins of the Orange Sherbet marijuana strain instantly intrigue consumers to want to learn more, and the rarity of this bud makes it a highly coveted strain.
As we briefly mentioned earlier, the actual lineage of the Orange Sherbet strain remains unknown, which is probably why its one of the hardest strains in the world to get your hands on. The most educated guesses regarding the family tree of Orange Sherbet is Sunset Sherbet and one of the Orange strains.
What we know about the Sherbet strain:
- It’s an Indica dominant hybrid
- Bred by Mr. Sherbinski
- The family tree includes Durban Poison, OG Kush, and Cherry Pie
With a lineage that features some of the most popular strains, we can only assume that Orange Sherbet would be a high-quality and flavorful bud.
To help the Cannaseurs on the hunt for the Orange Sherbet strain, people have reportedly found it in:
- Sunset District, CA
- Decatur, GA
- Valdosta, GA
Since finding a strain as rare as Orange Sherbet is like finding Bigfoot, we have tracked down users who have been lucky enough to get to experience the aroma, flavor, and high.
“Very nice, sweet aroma that smells like candy. A very mellow and relaxing high. Starts out slow, good for creativity. Did not make me tired or lethargic during the high. Stays steadily strong then mellows out into a slight, numb headache, the reason for three stars. Not enough to be debilitating but just slightly annoying. The headache shows up consistently with a whole joint or just a couple of hits. Great potential, but not one of my favorite strains.”
“Amazing sweet, earthy with a slight citrus twist! Great cerebral relaxation with a nice body high. Only mild dry mouth which is great. Definitely in my top 10!”
“ I’ve recently grown some of this. It turned out absolutely perfect in my book. Tested the CBD and THC levels and sold it to Smart bud company. THC: 24.83% CBD 0.09% Genuinely one of the top 3 strains I’ve ever had…and I have smoked for 21 years.”
“Light green buds with bright orange pistils that were covered with fuzzy hairs & tons of fine trichomes caked onto the bud. The visual grabs your attention right off. Scent & flavor was a sweet orange. Orange not of citrus more like artificial flavored orange, pretty unique. High made me very happy, relaxed & euphoric. Got such a calming sense of ease with this super rare strain. Got mine here in the San Fernando Valley. PEACE.”
As the name suggests, the strongest flavor is an orange, but according to reviews it’s not like a citrus orange, but like an artificial orange like candy. After the initial orange wave, users describe a tropical earthy pine flavor that is followed by a nice, smooth exhale that sits well on the tongue.
The aroma is a sweet, citrus. These types of strains are considered “neighbor friendly” because they don’t leave a pungent or strong skunky smell that is typically distinctive to smoking marijuana.
All in all, there are a few consistent features and observations made about the Orange Sherbet marijuana strain, including:
- Feelings of complete bliss throughout the entire high
- Aromatic buds
- Visually appealing
- Orange, citrus, and earthy pine flavor
- Buzzy body high
While some affirm that the Orange Sherbet strain is a pretty well-balanced hybrid at 50% Sativa, 50% Indica — others contest that it’s leaning Indica dominant. All agree that it gives you a nice body high and that you can still function without getting couch-locked or overly sleepy.
Some users have complained that this strain gives them headaches every time they smoked it, so if you suffer from migraines or chronic headaches; you may want to avoid this strain. Which is easy because it’s so rare.
The apex moment during a smoking session is no doubt the feelings of calm and euphoria that washes over you. The Orange Sherbet strain, in particular, was bred to provide a smooth smoking experience from start to finish, and according to users, this strain isn’t harsh and won’t result in a painful coughing fit.
For those adverse to smoking anything — we suggest consuming Orange Sherbet in edible form. The natural sweetness of this strain pairs great with a variety of foods and beverages including sodas, candies, and chocolate. Please keep in mind that it takes about an hour or two to feel the effects when you consume edible marijuana, so allow enough time in between doses to feel anything.
Since this is a relatively low CBD and THC strain (compared to others on the market), it’s not the best option to use in topical applications like oils and lotions.
Medical and Recreational Uses
What we love about Orange Sherbet is how multifunctional it is. It can be used in the day or night because it won’t knock you out, but it won’t keep you awake. You’ll experience an uptick in your mood and a nicely balanced body buzz that isn’t overwhelming.
That said, this strain is also great for medicinal cannabis users, especially those suffering from mental illness because of its lower THC content and the CBD it contains.
The medical uses for Orange Sherbet will vary from person to person since this isn’t’ heavy in CBD or THC. However, we did find that most people have found success using this strain for:
- Chronic Pain
Anxiety sufferers can dig into this strain without giving much caution to dosage. Strains that have low or average CBD and THC levels, there is less concern of triggering paranoia, fear, or overconsumption that may lead to an uncomfortable experience.
While we realize this strain is rare, there still have been no reports of it putting users into a dark headspace common from overconsumption. In fact, those who find it hard to turn their brains off be it for work, sleep, or listening to others — will find the Orange Sherbet is akin to taking a chill pill.
In terms of helping to ease physical pain, you would be better off tracking down another strain that is higher in THC and/or CBD.
If you are a newbie to the world of cannabis and marijuana, and you can manage to get your hands on some Orange Sherbet — we strongly urge you to try it. The nice relaxing high puts users in a peaceful but uplifting headspace that allows you to still function, albeit much more giggly.
A couple of hits of this strain is comparable to having a couple of drinks; you feel a release of tension and an uptick in mood. Since the psychedelic effects are minimal, you can let your anxieties about being the weirdo who talks to house plants at parties go.
Best Orange Sherbet recreational activities:
- Before or after social gatherings
- Before or after chores
- Before or after a workout
- Before bed
- Wake and bake
Another cool thing we discovered about the Orange Sherbet strain is that it pairs pretty well with alcohol. Usually, when people mix weed and alcohol it can cause stomach upset or intensify the drunk or high to uncomfortable levels — but users have reported they don’t experience that with this strain.
Orange Sherbet flowers mint green buds with orange hairs that are densely packed, with long leaves sprouting out after about 60-70 days. Another neat thing we learned about this strain is it has extra side leaves that grow close to harvest, however, these are purely structural because no buds are produced.
