Sunset Sherbet

The Sunset Sherbet strain of cannabis is an indica-dominant hybrid strain (cultivar) with an 85% indica to 15% sativa ratio. Although primarily known as Sunset Sherbet, the strain is sometimes called “Sherbet,” “Sherbet OG,” or spelled as “Sherbert.”

The strain is a cross between the well-known Girl Scout Cookies and Pink Panties strains, has THC levels of between 18% and 21%, and has very low CBD levels. This means you can expect to feel relaxed when smoking in moderation and have a deeper sense of relaxation and euphoria in higher doses.

The strain will make you feel uplifted and positive regardless of how much you consume. For this reason, the strain is popular among people who consume cannabis for medicinal purposes, like combating chronic fatigue, stress, and anxiety. The THC content and high levels of beta-caryophyllene make Sunset Sherbet a popular choice for chronic pain.

Growing

growing strains

Sunset Sherbet is a simple indica-dominant strain to grow due to its ability to be grown outdoors and indoors and the low maintenance it requires during the growing cycle. The biggest downside to this strain is its relatively low yield. Indoor growers report an average of 8 ounces of bud, and outdoor growers report around 11 ounces per plant.

Sunset Sherbet plants love a warm, Mediterranean-type climate, so if you live in an area with this climate, you’ll be able to plant them outdoors in a nice, sheltered spot. If this isn’t an option, you can easily create similar conditions indoors with the proper setup.

Height

Sunset Sherbet plants grow to a medium height between 30 and 78 inches and produce large flowers. When grown outdoors, they will grow to a larger size. During the growing cycle, they require little maintenance, whether grown indoors or outdoors.

Humidity and Temperature

Sunset Sherbet thrives in a warm, Mediterranean-type climate when they are grown outdoors. Alternatively, it is a great strain to grow indoors hydroponically. Unlike other strains, they grow best in more sheltered outdoor spots.

Flowering

When you grow Sunset Sherbet plants indoors, you will have a flowering time of approximately eight weeks, and when grown outdoors, you can expect to harvest your yield between late September and early October.
