Episode 18 in our 2020 Strain review series features Sherb Crasher, a new offering by Seed Junky Genetics that combines Sunset Sherbet X Wedding Crasher.
Taking things back another generation – Sunset Sherbet is Girl Scout Cookies X Pink Panties and Wedding Crasher is Wedding Cake X Purple Punch, meaning I have tried all of the most recent strains which went into Sherb Crasher.
The nugs of Sherb Crasher have a deliciously distinctive look, full of colours including purples and blues in addition to the shades of green.
The buds are well developed, with a heavy structure; dense with good trichome coverage.
The smell of Sherb Crasher is complex, capturing notes including earthy, pungent and gas, but also fruity with light, floral (rose?) notes.
Breaking open the bud it becomes more pungent and gassy, with pinene and perhaps terpenol present to give it such a nice smell.
Interestingly the smoke was a little hotter than I expected through the bong, but the gassy power also came through. This strain carries a fizzy sort of experience in the flavour, both when smoked and vaped.
The vapour tasted very pleasant, floral, sweet and hints of berry fruit, yet somehow a sharp sour twang in addition to the sweetness.
The Sherb Crasher is a strong, heavy-hitting, body-led strain, with effects kicking in after just a few minutes. It lands first in the body, acting as a relaxant, before reaching the mind and making me feel quite spaced out.
Waves crashed over me as the high intensified, and I started noticing a trippy blurred visual as I scanned my vision around the room. This feeling lasted only a few minutes, but was enough to show me a different side to this high I hadn’t been expecting.
The Sherb Crasher is an enjoyable smoke with a different high to a lot of what I have experienced. If you like your trippy visuals, this one may be for you, although I doubt this effect will remain significant when smoking the strain on an ongoing basis.
