With linalool being the most abundant terpene in its profile, the weed features a distinctive fruity taste that reminds of something tropical with a citrus overnote. Many consumers also detect the taste of berries, grapefruit, pear, apricot, and mint, accented by a potent diesel flavor, which shows up due to the presence of the terpinolene terpene.

Growing Tips & Recommendations

It’s notable that the Sour Sherbert strain is not difficult to grow. However, because it often stretches up to 80 inches in height outdoors, it may require some kind of size control. Other than that, though, the plant is no more demanding than any other weed and demonstrates great growth both indoors and outdoors. If you grow it indoors, it will deliver up to 0.5 Oz/ft of yield, while if grown outdoors, you can expect to collect up to 5-10 Oz per bush, which is quite a rich crop! It has only 64 days of flowering time and is ready to harvest in 70 days.

Sour Sherbert Strain Cannabinoids

THC 15 - 22% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.8 - 1.24% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.1 - 0.69% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.19 - 0.77% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.11 - 0.28% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.35 - 0.73% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.
