Sunset Sherbert Genetics
Bred by Mr Sherbinski, this wonderful marijuana seed is the offspring of the legendary Girl Scout Cookies and the scandalously named Pink Panties strain types. Its intoxicating full-body effects and high THC level are inherited from Girl Scout Cookies whose impressive lineage includes the legends OG Kush and Durban Poison.
Thanks to the potent Pink Panties lineage, you can expect a hardy plant with a high that comes on slow and culminates in a burst of cerebral energy. Sunset sherbet is one of those amazing strain types that takes the best from both parents. The result is a potent indica dominant hybrid strain with some truly outstanding genetics.
Sunset Sherbert Terpene Profile
This cannabis strain is popular due to its complex terpene profile. Citrus sweet notes that radiate from the buds are attributed to limonene, while peppery undertones are a telltale sign that caryophyllene is present in Sunset aka Sunset Sherbet.
This beautiful Sunset also features tantalising berry aromas and a tart, sugary taste that comes from the sweet Girl Scout Cookies. The playful hits of hops and herbs, however, stem from a terpene commonly found in Eastern medicinal ingredients, humulene
Sunset Sherbert Effects
Sunset Sherbet has a THC level between 18%-24% and exhibits a balance of physical and cerebral effects.
Buyers of this delightful cannabis strain can look forward to full-body relaxation due to the terpene limonene (shown to increase serotonin and dopamine levels), in addition to a surge in motivation and creativity.
While this stain can be enjoyed during the day, its optimum use occurs, as the name suggests, once the sun goes down.
Sunset Sherbert Medical Benefits
The main advantage of consuming this strain as medical marijuana is due to the terpene humulene.
Humulene, which is also found in many essential oils, is known to work like the cannabinoid THCV in that it is an appetite suppressant. The ability for humulene to regulate hunger means it has value for medical marijuana patients who are required to lose weight.
In addition, the presence of caryophyllene, a known anti-inflammatory, suggests that Sunset Sherbert could be used to treat both pain and inflammation.
