Sherbet Marijuana Strain Origins
The Sherbet strain boasts an 85% indica, 15% sativa ratio—officially classifying it as an indica dominant cannabis hybrid. Fans of the popular Girl Scout Cookies strain should consider giving Sherbet a try. While Sherbet is not as popular, it is derived from the Girl Scout Cookies strain and is said to taste as good and be as effective as its parent.
The other parent to the Sherbet strain is the scandalously named Pink Panties strain. While not much is really known about the Pink Panties strain, it is classified as a cannabis indica, and it is thought to be a relative to Blackberry Kush.
Sherbet strains are pretty potent having an 18-23% THC content. This strain is said to produce a long-lasting and strong high.

Much like the classic sherbet you enjoy, the Sherbet marijuana strain tastes sweet and fruity. Its fruity tastes fall under the categories of berry and citrus. Many say it also produces a natural earthy flavor but with no bitter undertones. Reviewers often say the earthy taste is almost nutty and is overall similar to a pistachio ice-cream.
The Sherbet strain may look like a classic cannabis bud at first, but you may notice it actually has bright orange, yellow, or neon green colors blended throughout. This marijuana is also typically going to be thickly coated with crystalline trichomes that will make it glisten beautifully under the light.
