Even though Sherbet Cookies have about 70% Sativa genetics, this strain has a moderate 16% to 17% THC and low CBD. It offers adequate pain relief for moderate conditions like tension headaches rather than migraines. It also has an “old-school” Sativa head high, which is bright, energetic, refreshing and creative. This means that Sherbet Cookies is typically recommended for people who need a “wake and bake” strain, or daytime pain relief. Although this is not a classic night time strain, the high is moderate enough that you could still use it at night. It wouldn’t necessarily help you to get to sleep, but it probably wouldn’t stop you either.
Sherbet Cookies marijuana seeds produce reasonable yields. Indoors you can expect up to 450g/m2. Outdoors you could collect as much as 500g of bud from each of your Sherbet Cookies marijuana plants.
Indoors, Sherbet Cookies will need 8 to 9 weeks of flowering time. Outdoors this strain will be ready around late September or early October. Sherbet Cookies marijuana seeds grow into medium-sized plants, with an approximate height range of about 1M indoor minimum, to 1.8M outdoors.
While the name Sherbet Cookies might sound exotic and delicate, this strain has some seriously robust genetics behind it. The immediate parent strains are Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet, which is itself a cross between Girl Scout Cookies and Pink Panties. Girl Scout Cookies is descended from OG Kush and Durban Poison. Pink Panties is a cross between Florida Kush, a descendant of Hindu Kush and Burmese Kush. In other words, this strain is packed full of landrace and near- landrace genetics. Therefore has lots of natural resilience to mould, diseases and pests and needs very little in the way of tender, loving care.
It does, however, need a warm, dry and sunny climate if you want to grow it totally outdoors. If you live in a place which gets plenty of sunlight, but is not necessarily particularly warm and/or dry then a greenhouse grow may be a better option. Regardless of what type of growing location you choose, you will need to ensure that you allow space for your plants to grow, outwards as well as upwards. This matters for two reasons. Firstly, you need to ensure good air flow to protect against mould. Secondly, you want your plants to be able to make the best possible use of the available light. Plants which are crowded together may well end up fighting each other for the available resource, which is bad news for your yields. Also, as usual, odour control matters. Sherbet Cookies is a moderately difficult strain to grow because it’s photoperiod.
If you’re worried that Sherbet Cookies will be just too sweet, you don’t need to be. The base notes are rich, solid and nutty. There is also a layer of berry sweetness, which is balanced by citrus freshness. We’d say the aroma reflected the Girl Scout Cookies side of the parentage, but with more fruit and less mint.
We’d love to be able to tell you that Sherbet Cookies looked just like actual cookies, but they don’t. But they do have bright green nugs with colourful orange pistils and a liberal dusting of glistening white trichomes. As a Sativa dominant, Sherbet Cookies nugs have a lighter, fluffier texture. So you could probably break them up with your fingers if you really needed to.
