Sunset Sherbet is a indica leaning hybrid. Girl Scout Cookies bred to Pink Panties male plant produced this strain genetics. The mad scientist behind this pairing his name Mr Sherbinski.
The Look of this 7 gram sample presents in a brilliant shades of Barney purple mixed with a lime green at roughly 90% purple ratio. The jar appeal is satisfactory and always. AMCO high opinion on look 9 out of 10.
The smell on this phenotype sunset sherbet a little different. My nose picks up a strong fruit scent that is kind of lavender based. There’s a subtle yet present spice sent of caryophyllene. I think linalool and humulene are present in a minor degree. AMCO high opinion on smell 7 out of 10 with deductions for pungency.
There is very minimal decapitation a bulbous tricomb heads on the sample. As you can see from the above photos the interior and exterior of the flower when overlaid is very similar. This tells the trained eye that cautious trimming was done. My assertion is there using machine trimmer turned way down so not to disturb trichomes. As it exits the trimmer, I believe human trimmers are cleaning up the product to perfection. AMCO high opinion on cure 8 out of 10
. And here’s why: under the microscope tricomb heads are mostly clouded as they should be. Yet there is 0 ambering of the tricombs. This tells me it was pulled too soon in the growing cycle to maximize medicinal body effect. Being an indica, a 30% ambering is the goal in my high opinion. At this level of cultivation I would expect the choice to harvest would include more lengthy grows allowing for full maturity since they have a much more intimate relationship due to size of grow than at the cultivation level. A one point correction was added for the length of cure. According to the label dates harvest was September 1st and the test date was September 18th making for a 17 day dry and cure. I’m reviewing it on October 8th.
After hand scissoring half of a gram of this quality purple color flower I find it pleasing to process into a Zig Zag 110 mm unbleached rolling paper. After initially firing up the joint, the first terpenes to hit in my tongue are the linalool and limonene. You’ll notice them by their lavender fruity flavors. There is a earthy flavor I believe is humulene due to the lack of skunk. AMCO high opinion on taste 9 of 10.
These genetics range from 15 to 19% THC on a normal basis. This Highbank grown sunset sherbet tested at 15.71% THC. I found it to have quite the expectorant like characteristics in the sinuses and lungs making it a great choice for this allergy season. Despite my chest congestion and sinus pressure that I’m currently dealing with, I was still able to consume this sample. About 3/4 the way through this joint I let it go out. My mood was calmed greatly. I achieved muscle relaxation of 2 points, but did not get nerve pain relief from this strain. The PTSD relief and calming effect I received a reduction of probably five points. I will be suggesting this product to all PTSD patients the near future. AMCO High Opinion on effect 9 out of 10.
AMCO overall High Opinion on High Bank’s farmed Sunset Sherbert is a 8 of 10. This is not a pain medication but works very well at remediating symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, and stress.
