Sunset Sherbet (often spelled Sherbert, for reasons still unknown) is an indica-dominant strain with a high THC content and highly uplifting effects that boil down to deep relaxation. Although it is relatively easy-to-grow, Sunset Sherbet produces below average yields.
Heritage & Genetics: This strain is a cross between the legendary Girl Scout Cookies and an obscure indica called Pink Panties. With an average THC content of 19%, the original strain was developed in San Francisco by Mr.Sherbinski: Sunset Sherbet combines an interesting lineage that includes traces of illustrious strains such as Durban Poison and OG Kush.
Flavor & Aroma: With a genetic heritage that involves a lot of premium strains, Sunset Sherbet could not be an exception. The aroma and taste of this strain are sweet but quite complex, with notes of berries, citrus and candy. On the exhale, you might get a fruity aftertaste. The intricate taste profile of Sunset Sherbet makes it a great choice for vaping since combustion eliminates most of the terpenes.
Effect: Although this strain is 85% indica-dominant, it will produce an energizing cerebral high, that will eventually dissipate in a pleasant relaxation. Sunset Sherbet is a perfect strain for social gatherings and parties, as it tends to make people more talkative and active.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Sunset Sherbet plants can grow equally well both indoors and outdoors, as they are quite resilient. They respond well to hydroponic methods, and even beginner growers won’t have any problems, as long as they stick to the basics. Although Sunset Sherbet is mold resistant, some caution is needed when monitoring humidity levels. This is why it is better for newbies to grow this strain in soil, as the environment is easier to control. Yields tend to be below average, but the flowers are chunky and frosty, in typical indica fashion.
