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; 85% Indica and 15% Sativa. If you’re a fan of Girl Scout Cookies, then you’ll likely be a fan of its progeny because it is just as tasty and just as potent as its mother strain.
Girl Scout Cookie is crossed with OG Kush and Durban Poison and is a 40/60 Indica dominant hybrid. Sherbet’s father, 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 potent and long-lasting high that offers the best of both worlds: the full-body relaxation of an Indica, coupled with the energizing effects of a Sativa.
Sherbet Strain: 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.
Sherbet’s Reported Positive Effects
Even though this is an Indica dominant strain, you’ll be shocked to learn the effects you experience are more reminiscent of a Sativa strain that includes increased motivation and creativity. The Indica will put you in a state of mental and physical relaxation that is great for de-stressing, but the Sativa keeps you from feeling drowsy or getting couch-locked.
We recommend this strain for users looking to boost their interpersonal experiences or creativity. It 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— which is rare. Other common side effects include dry/red eyes and dry mouth, but this is a frequent occurrence with all marijuana strains and can be cured with some lubricating eye drops and drinking plenty of water before, during, and after each session.
Sherbet Marijuana Strain Benefits
This flavorful strain tastes good and is fun to use, but did you know it may be useful to medicinal patients battling cancer or mental health conditions? The strong energizing and uplifting 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 — gradually building up your dose until you feel comfortable.
But for more severe or intense physical or chronic pain, you may want to give concentrates or potent 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.
The Sherbert Marijuana Strain reportedly helps users with the following:
- Chronic Pain
- Lack of appetite
Sherbet Strain Growing Information
What we love about the Sherbet strain is how easy it is for beginners to grow. It’s low maintenance 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, but still warm with plenty of moisture. For inside growers, it’s imperative to monitor the humidity levels if you want a high-quality sherbet marijuana strain. If there is too much moisture, even this mildew and mold resistant strain can fall prey to wilting and damage.
The total flowering time for the Sherbet strain is about eight weeks, and if you’re growing outdoors, it’s best to harvest in September and October to maximize your yields — because this is a relatively low to average producing plant. For more context, an outdoor Sherbet plant produces about 11 oz and an indoor one at about 8 oz.
Since the Sherbet cannabis strain heightens the 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 — we don’t recommend ingesting any THC because all THC strains alter your mental state somewhat.
The Sherbet Family
The Sherbet marijuana strain is both relaxing and energizing that tastes amazing and delivers a potent high — like the rest of its family. If you’re a fan of Sherbet, you’ll want to sample one of its brothers, sisters, or cousins which are equally as flavorful and effective. The extended family of some of Sherbet relatives includes:
