Rarely, some users report mild anxiety or paranoia during their use of orange sherbet weed, however it’s fairly unlikely to occur.

In appearance, this strain features classic marijuana buds, although, as you might guess from its name, it has some sunset shades too. Its sugar leaves can be neon green, yellow or rusty brown, while the pistils are bright orange and the crystalline trichomes make its nugs glisten under the light. With a medium height, Sunset Sherbet has bushy, thick stems which feature dense flowers.
You’ll need to grow the Sherbet strain in a Mediterranean-style, warm and shaded climate which should have daytime temperatures of around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. This is very simple for indoor growers to maintain, although monitoring humidity levels is vital. Orange sherbet strain is best grown in soil rather than using hydroponics, and it has a flowering period of about eight weeks. If you’re growing outdoors, harvesting will usually fall in late September or early October.
Both medicinal and recreational users will be pleased to learn that there are only minimal negative side-effects reported when using the Sunset Sherbet strain.

Sunset Sherbet has risen in popularity during the last few years thanks to its fabulous flavor and aroma. Its sweet yet earthy notes have been compared to berries, fruits or even a natural kind of bubblegum, all topped with tree-like overtones.
Sunset Sherbet cannabis has recently become more popular with medicinal users thanks to its ability to relieve both severe and mild anxiety, stress and depression. With its uplifting properties, this strain is ideal for helping improve mental health disorders, and it is now used by several cancer patients who not only appreciate its anxiety and stress-relieving properties but also find it beneficial in boosting their appetite, reducing their nausea and easing chronic pain, all three of which symptoms are often negative side-effects of cancer treatments.
Be aware that the Sherbet strain tends to have a lower yield – you can usually expect about 8oz per square meter if you’re growing indoors or 11oz per plant if you’re growing outdoors.
