The third in a line of fruity strains developed by Pacific Northwest-based Gabriel Cannabis, Lemon Sorbet 3 is an indica-leaning hybrid. This bud is a cross between tasty Sherbert and Lemon OG that inherited all the dynamic flavor of its parent strains. It delivers a focused cerebral high that complements its complex citrus aroma. Lemon Sorbet's THC content has been measured at between 17% and 23%.
Flowers of Lemon Sorbet 3 are on the smaller side that cling together in dense, pebbly clusters. The inner makeup of these buds is seemingly hybridized, with a dense, indica-typical core but with feathery leaves that twist away from one another at their margins in a more sativa fashion. The leaves are a pale shade of sage green and are accented by several curly orange pistils. The translucent white trichomes cover all visible nooks and crannies of these buds, making them very sticky to the touch.
Once cured, these flowers give off the unmistakable aroma of lemon, and a deeper whiff may also detect some dank, earthy scents. When it's ground up for a pipe or joint, this strain can have more of an astringent diesel funk. acrid smoke that may irritate the palate and sinuses. On the exhale, this smoke leaves behind a tangy lemon flavor.
Like many other indica-dominant strains, the high from Lemon Sorbet 3 can creep up slowly. Some 10 to 15 minutes after ingestion, smokers may feel a head rush that can be characterized by facial tics like flushed cheeks or an increase in salivation. As these sensations dissolve, users are elevated to a new plane of thinking where ideas seem to take on a new complexity or gravity. For some, this thoughtfulness can result in all kinds of productivity, whether it's working on chores or detailed tasks. In the right setting, Lemon Sorbet 3's mental properties can also manifest into sensory distortions like mild visual or auditory hallucinations; those who enjoy these trippy qualities can revel in them by turning on some atmospheric music or a moody film.
After about an hour, Lemon Sorbet 3's mental properties start to give way to a heavy body stone. A tingle of relaxation that originates at the base of the neck and rolls down the spine out through the core, facilitating deep and restorative breathing. At this point, smokers who are fortunate enough to be kicking back at home will start to experience a relief from any nagging spots of muscular tension. Those who are active or out and about, may find it progressively harder to exert themselves or engage in physical labor. If dosage is increased, this sedated feeling can morph into total couchlock, pinning satisfied consumers in place. Because of its slow-blooming effects, Lemon Sorbet 3 is recommended for late afternoon through evening consumption.
An enjoyable recreational strain, it can also be of value to medical cannabis patients. The cerebral surge that comes with its onset may help those with ADD to focus on one task at a time and its ability to improve mood makes it a solid option for temporarily relieving symptoms of stress and depression. Physically, this bud can soothe all kinds of aches and pains, whether short-term and mild or chronic conditions like COPD or lupus. Its anti-inflammatory properties may even take the sting out of common afflictions such as nausea and headaches. Because it poses a lower risk of obsessive, paranoid thinking, Lemon Sorbet 3 can be a good choice for patients who are inexperienced with THC.
Unfortunately for prospective growers, seeds of Lemon Sorbet 3 have not been produced for commercial sale. Instead, those looking at home cultivation should seek out a trusted source to obtain clippings; these can be propagated as identical $$clones$$ and may thrive indoors or outdoors in a hot, humid climate. While not much information is available on best practices specific to growing this variety, its indica roots suggest that it will have a short, bushy silhouette that flower within eight to nine weeks.
