Sunset Sherbert is an Indica strain. It originates from the legendary Pink Panties and Girl Scout Cookies strains. Featuring THC content of between 16% and 20% this can be quite a potent weed with many psychedelic effects. Its CBD content in it is typically measured below 1%.

This strain is typical for the Bay Area, California, partly because the mastermind behind it (some called him Mr. Sherbinsky, while other sources state the grower as unknown), was from there, and because of the amount of it sold within the area. It has a strong GSC core combined with Pink Panties’ energy-giving abilities, which is another point why people love it. Having been already for more than 10 years on the market, it still remains one of the favorites for those who like the tasty kind of high.

Sunset Sherbet Effects

Although every given breed will have slightly different effects on any given person due to many factors (mental state, physical build, perception type, quantity & quality of the weed smoked, etc), it has many similarities in terms of the general feeling that most people will encounter after using it. These are the most commonly reported feelings from the users:

Negative effects:

  • Dry mouth & eyes
  • Anxiety
  • Slower body coordination & dizziness
  • Paranoid

Medical Applications

While the recreational usage of any strain is pretty straightforward (to create and experience the good, happy, serene state of mind), the medical purposes for every breed are different, depending on what’s being treated and the amount of CBD/THC that the particular plant has. Based on the chemical structure, this plant is used to treat the following conditions:

  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Eating disorders
  • ADHD

Flavors and Fragrances

Having an OG Kush as one of your ancestors, you’ll definitely have to inherit the hashish odor, typical for the cannabinoid plants. A crossbred with CSG, it gets mixed with a fruity freshness that includes fresh orange and sweet orange as a dominant note, and strong gourmand candy and sherbet notes.

In terms of taste, there is nothing like the feeling of a tasty joint that doesn’t leave the terrible dry-red-wine like aftertaste and smells like citrusy cotton candy. That’s pretty much what you’ll get with a sunset sherbet hybrid. Be careful though, it’s so strong you might cough for a minute if you haven’t tried anything like this before. The optimal solution here is to smell the plant itself for a while, then make a joint/bong, lighten it and inhale in small doses.

Growing Information


This strain loves shaded, warm and humid Mediterranean climate and the most perfect place you can grow it in the States is Central California. It doesn’t mean it only can grow outside – under proper artificial conditions, you’ll have the plant fully grown indoors. A greenhouse with a temperature between 70-85 degrees Fahrenheit is considered a perfect for this strain.

Sunset Sherbet Grow

To maximize the yield and help preserve the qualities of the plant, one should expose the plant to cold night temperatures for a few days before cropping. Also, it’s paramount to trim the big leaves regularly. Within 8-9 weeks after planting it, you should expect its blooming in the tasty flowers. Don’t let the sunset sherbet flowering time get past its maximum deadline as it will lose its aroma qualities.


Because this plant loves a warm and humid climate, the soil it grows in should be well-balanced to keep enough water and won’t become asphalt-like when it’s hot. There is no way that there is a shortage of water, as the lack of shadow. Some farmers decide to mineralize the soil but we would encourage you to refrain from it as it will change the smell and the taste, to say nothing of the chemical ingredients.

Sunset Sherbet Strain Cannabinoids

THC 17 - 20% 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 0.48 - 0.79% 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 - 1.16% 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 0.13 - 2.32% 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 0.06 - 0.16% 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 0.36 - 1.41% 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.

It has a powerful citrus aroma and can be found in all citruses, including lemons, oranges, grapefruits, limes, juniper, etc. Limonene is known to elevate moods and provide anxiety, depression, and stress relief.
