Effects & Usage



Imagine a strain that swirls together the soothing tranquillity of an evening breeze and the lively euphoria of the morning sun, and you have Sunset Sherbet. This moderately potent indica-dominant hybrid, also known as Sherbert/ Sherbert OG, scores between 15-21% THC and is beloved for providing a soothing balm to your mind, body and soul. A cherry on the top is its esteemed lineage, including Pink Panties and GSC.


The onset of the effects of Sunset Sherbet unfolds rather swiftly. It begins with a wave of cerebral energy and a euphoric uplift that tingles the senses with a creative streak. The strain carries on its Cookies parent’s blissful, feel-good sensations, making you appreciative and grateful for the world around you. Soon enough, the indica genes take over, offering a sense of tranquillity that envelops your body in a warm, comforting hug.

The whole experience can be likened to a gentle massage, truly soothing the body and the soul.

When Sunset Sherbet is enjoyed with friends, it is guaranteed to give you a great time, filled with giggles, laughter and happiness.

It shines as an evening strain, a perfect companion to unwind with after a long day. Its tranquillising effects make it less suitable for morning use or tasks requiring high alertness.

Medical cannabis patients love Sunset Sherbet for its wide range of therapeutic actions.

With a high caryophyllene and CBG (1%) content, it can help relieve various kinds of pain, such as arthritis, menstrual cramps, headaches, chronic pain etc.

As a euphoric and uplifting strain, it can be an excellent remedy against symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression and even PTSD. It also increases appetite, which can help patients struggling with nausea and eating disorders. Lastly, if smoked before bed, its calming action can help users get a deep, restful sleep.

Side effects

Sunset Sherbet is a gentle, relaxing strain, and as such, it does not cause too many side effects. You can expect the standard mouth and eye dehydration, but anxiety and paranoia are uncommon. Nevertheless, it is essential to practise responsible consumption, especially if you are prone to mental health conditions. Start with a single inhalation and gradually build it up if necessary.

Taste & Smell


Like the vivid spectacle of a setting sun, Sunset Sherbet buds exhibit a visually stunning spectrum of colours, blending deep purples and oranges against a backdrop of green. The buds are dense and tightly packed, covered in sparkling trichomes signifying the potency.

The aroma is equally enchanting as Sunset Sherbet takes you on a sensory journey through a sweet fruity orchard, with prominent limonene citrus and berry notes complemented by a skunky, earthy undertone. This tempting smell beautifully reflects its complex fruity, minty, and spicy flavour profile. It culminates in a pleasantly sweet aftertaste, bringing freshly baked cookies to mind.



Sunset Sherbet is yet another member of the famous Cookies family. The creation of this flower involved crossbreeding the widely adored GSC with the hilariously named Pink Panties strain. While the strain has not achieved as much fame as its famous Girl Scout Cookies parent, it has left its mark in the world of cannabis by being one of the parents of the pristine and ever-popular Gelato.

Growing conditions

With a high resistance to mould and mildew, as well as low maintenance requirements, Sunset Sherbet is a joy to grow. It likes a warm, outdoor environment, so growing it in Thailand during the winter should definitely be possible. Otherwise, you can replicate these conditions indoors with powerful lamps.

The plants tend to grow short and bushy, needing minimum space. Yet another bonus is the short flowering time, typically taking around 8 weeks. However, yields are generally relatively modest compared to other cultivars. You can expect about 225 grams per square metre indoors and 300-350 grams per plant outdoors.
