When looking into the Sherbet strain, it is important to know the lineage and how it will benefit the user. The heir of Girl Scout Cookies and Pink Panties, Sherbet — also known as Sunset Sherbet, does her parents’ lineage proud. This decadent and uplifting strain has a peculiar way of engulfing your senses, turning normal, everyday activities into therapeutic and creative outlets.
The Sherbert strain also offers potential benefits and symptom relief for a variety of medical issues by preventing the body from feeling pain or inflammation — and by providing intense feelings of happiness and euphoria.
Sherbet Marijuana Strain Lineage
Sherbet is an Indica dominant hybrid strain that comes to an 85% Indica and 15% Sativa. If you’re a fan of Girl Scout Cookies, then you’ll likely be a fan of its descendant because it is just as tasty as its mother strain.
Girl Scout Cookie is crossed with OG Kush and Durban Poison and is a 40/60 Indica dominant hybrid. The father plant of the Sherbet strain is Pink Panties. Pink Panties is the offspring of Blackberry Kush and is classified as being Indica dominant.
With an 18-23% THC content range, Sherbet produces a relatively strong and long-lasting high. This is the type of high that offers the best of both worlds. Both the full-body relaxation of an Indica and the energizing effects of a Sativa.
Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
The moment you crack the jar open, the growing popularity of the Sherbet strain will start to make sense, and why it was given the moniker of Sherbet. Similar to the sherbet you eat, the Sherbet marijuana strain is fruity and sweet; tasting of fresh berries and citrus. Some feel that it also has a slightly earthy taste, and others think it has more of a nutty undertone like almond ice cream.
At first sight, this strain will look similar to your run of the mill classic buds, but upon closer inspection, you’ll see neon green, bright orange and yellow melded together. It will also be loaded with thick, glistening trichomes that you’ll see emanating from the leaves of the flower.
Reported Positive Effects of the Sherbet Strain
Even though this is an Indica dominant strain, you’ll be shocked to learn the effects you experience are more consistent with the Sativa strain. This includes increased motivation and creativity. The Indica in this strain will put you in a state of mental and physical relaxation that is great for de-stressing. The Sativa keeps you from feeling drowsy or getting glued to the couch.
We recommend this strain for users looking to boost their interpersonal experiences or creativity. The strain allows you to view the world and life events in a playful way, which is probably why so many reviewers comment on how enjoyable the Sherbet Marijuana strain is while viewing art, listening to music, or hanging out with friends.
Sherbet’s Reported Negative Effects
There are only a few mild side effects ever reported with the Sherbet strain, with the most serious offenses being headaches, paranoia, and anxiety. Even though these side effects have been reported, it is rare. Other common side effects include dry and red eyes or dry mouth. These are common side effects with most marijuana strains.
Sherbet Marijuana Strain Benefits
While the Sherbet strain is fun to use, it also offers medicinal benefits to patients struggling with cancer. The strong energizing high allow patients to get a mental and physical break from their pain.
That said, it’s important to keep in mind that medicinal users need to be cautious concerning the dosage. It’s always best to go low and slow. It is important for users to gradually build up a dose until comfortable.
But for more severe physical or chronic pain, you may want to give concentrates or edibles a try because they have stronger pain-relieving properties. If you live in a state or country where recreational or medicinal marijuana is legal, getting your hands on these should be a non-issue.

Sherbet Strain Growing Information
What we love about growing the Sherbet strain is how easy it is for beginners. This is a low maintenance plant and has a natural resistance to most mildews, molds, and pests. If you’re growing outside, it’s important to keep your plants in the shade. However, the plant will still need a healthy amount of moisture. But, by overwatering this strain it can lead to root rot which will result in wilted leaves and less bud growth. For inside growers, it’s important to monitor the humidity levels if you want a high-quality bud.
The total flowering time for the Sherbet strain is about eight weeks. If you’re growing outdoors, it’s best to harvest in September and October to maximize your yields. The Sherbet strain is a low to average producing plant. An outdoor Sherbet plant produces about 11 oz and an indoor one at about 8 oz.
Since the Sherbet cannabis strain increases senses with its Sativa-like effects that eventually tapers down into a relaxing high, it really can be enjoyed day or night. If you have a lot to get done or need to have mental clarity, StrainSanity doesn’t recommend ingesting any THC because all THC strains alter your mental state to an extent.
