Sherbert aka Sunset Sherbet is distinguished by medium to large-sized flowers that hold together in a dense, indica-typical structure. The wide leaves are a vibrant spring green, set off by rust-colored pistils. In certain phenotypes, flowers show flashes of deep purple; these hues come about when pigments called anthocyanins are stimulated by colder than average temperatures during the growing process. Sticky trichomes dot the already-colorful flowers, giving them a silvery sheen. The aroma of sweet berries and fresh orange zest jumps off of the cured buds, a tantalizing combination of Sunset Sherbet’s parent strains. On closer inspection, a skunky pungency lurks underneath the fruity tones, while grinding up or breaking open the nugs reveals the strain’s dank, hashy odors, courtesy of grandparent strain OG Kush.
When combusted, Sunset Sherbet has a harsh smoke that may sting eyes and sinuses and induce coughing. On the exhale, this smoke leaves behind a tart, saccharine taste. Notably, the anthocyanin pigments that give this strain its unique purple color do not have a corresponding effect on taste, and flavors of grape are rarely detected in Sunset Sherbet’s flowers.
