A loss of appetite
The Banana Sherbet strain is a highly potent, indica-dominant hybrid. It is a cross of Sunset Sherbet and Banana Kush, so you can see where it gets its name.
While its name suggests a strain that is all sweetness and light, the opposite is the case. This hard-hitting and potent strain typically contains an average THC content of 21%. However, some samples reportedly contain a whopping 26% THC.
Aroma and Flavour
With a name like Banana Sherbet, it won’t come as a surprise to you that this strain has a fruity banana fragrance. It has also inherited the sweet-smelling aromas of its parent strain, Sunset Sherbet.
The Banana Sherbet strain packs in all of the effervescent goodness of sherbet we all remember from our childhood. Deliciously sweet and fruity flavors dominate and delight the taste buds, making this one a taste sensation. These are complemented nicely by some citrusy and creamier notes. The good news is Banana Sherbet’s smoke is smooth and mild, so you shouldn’t experience fits of coughing with this one.
Banana Sherbet’s potency arguably makes it unsuitable for novices. Even experienced cannabis consumers will have to tread lightly with this one. Less is definitely more with this strain. If you overindulge, then you will likely find yourself glued to the couch, heavily sedated and sleepy.
If you decide to consume Banana Sherbet, experienced users recommend only consuming a little at first. Doing so will allow you to judge how well you tolerate the strain’s potent effects. Initially, Banana Sherbet’s effects are uplifting. Users generally say that it causes them to think more abstractly and creatively. Therefore, it may be a good option for artistic types looking for a bit of creative inspiration.
However, Banana Sherbet’s indica effects tend to come more to the fore after the initial high starts to fade. A feeling of deep relaxation and mellow calmness characterizes the latter stages of Banana Sherbet’s effects.
The deep feeling of relaxation tends to lead to couchlock and sleepiness later on. A long and restful night’s sleep is pretty much guaranteed after consuming Banana Sherbert. Therefore, this is a strain that is much better suited to evening rather than daytime use.
Banana Sherbet’s initial uplifting effects may offer temporary relief from mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. This strain’s calming effect may also temporarily alleviate chronic stress. Its ability to deeply relax the body may also help address chronic arthritis and lower back pain.
The Banana Sherbet strain is particularly popular with medicinal cannabis consumers who have insomnia. Its ability to induce sedation, which characterizes the latter stages of this strain’s effects, makes staying awake almost impossible.
If you overindulge on this strain, you are highly likely to be couch-locked.
