A sweet strain with a name to match, Sunset Sherbet is an indica-dominant hybrid that gives you the best of both cannabis worlds: the elevating effects of a sativa, coupled with the full body relaxation of an indica.
This cannabis strain is a hybrid of Pink Panties and Girl Scout Cookies, which is descended from OG Kush, Cherry Pie, and Durban Poison. Originally from San Francisco, Sunset Sherbert was created completely by accident: Over the course of a weekend, the parent plants were left alone together in a basement in the Sunset District and when the grower returned, Sunset Sherbet was born.
Reminiscent of its parents, Sunset Sherbet has a sweet, tropical scent that becomes more skunky as it’s broken down. The flowers tend to be cone-shaped and are often covered in frosty trichomes, making this marijuana strain’s buds look like little, dense Christmas trees. Much like its aroma, Sunset Sherbet’s flavor has strong notes of citrus that become more earthy as you exhale.
A great cannabis strain for relaxing, Sunset Sherbet is best consumed in the evening to wind down or during a leisurely afternoon. Effects are euphoric yet mellow, which makes this marijuana strain ideal for those who struggle with stress.
In addition to the stress-busting qualities Sunset Sherbet provides, medical marijuana patients may find it useful in treating anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD and PTSD. Its calming cerebral effects make it great for mood disorders, and full body effects can help provide patients with more restful sleep.
