The Sunset Sherbert high can take a few minutes to kick in as it builds up slowly, so be patient and careful with how much you consume as a little can go a long way with this one! Users will begin to feel the high creep throughout their body before entering a state of full-body relaxation. It is definitely possible to get couch-locked with this strain due to its sedative-like physical calmness and warm buzz, which can be helpful for those with chronic pains, arthritis, or those struggling with insomnia. However, this strain is not so heavy that it would immediately induce sleep, so a smaller dose can be used any time of the day if you’re feeling lazy and want to kick back and relax. Sunset Sherbert also offers users some mental stimulation which can be described as imaginative and carefree; it comes after the body high kicks in, also creating an uplifted mood and a state of euphoria, making the strain great for treating stress, depression or anxiety. These effects make Sunset Sherbert great for a movie night in and can be shared with a partner or a group of friends–just be sure to pair with a scoop or two of your sherbert ice cream!

Appearance & Aroma
One of the tastiest strains available on the market, the Sunset Sherbert is a fully packed fruit medley. Apart from the scent of fruitiness, its aroma is also noticeably of a honey-like sweetness–think of a yogurt parfait! When smoked, you will taste sweet notes of berries and bright citrus, though it also has undertones of skunkiness and earthy mint when exhaled. The flowers themselves are densely packed and are of a leafy, spring green colour. There are bits of rusty pistils throughout, and taking on from its genetic heritage of OG Kush, the buds also carry undertones of deep purples. To top it all off, it is covered in a thick layer of trichomes, giving it a nice, silvery sheen.
