One of the best
times to use the strain is right before a meal. Its initial mental stimulation
can wake the appetite. Not only that, a hearty meal that can replenish any lost
energy. Users may prepare some snacks ahead of time or pour the rest of one’s time
into concocting a bowl of food.

After about an hour or two, a light pressure from between the eyes intensifies. It oozes down to the rest of the body until it is eventually enveloped by relaxation. Soothing each muscle is the same buzz that relieves the body of stress and fatigue. In spite of its intensity, it does not lock users to the couch.

With that said, Sour Banana Sherbet can be used at any time of the day. Pacing is important though. The psychoactive high that its THC levels of 18% to 24% deliver can be overwhelming. In fact, using beyond tolerance levels can stun the senses with its debilitating effects.


Sour Banana Sherbet has a pungent aroma with both sweet and sour overtones. Breaking it apart reveals the scent of ripened fruits. Combusting it, however, releases its diesel and fuel undertones.


Consuming Sour
Banana Sherbet is like drinking a banana shake. It swarms the mouth with a fruity
overtone with sour undertones reminiscent of fuel and diesel. On the exhale, it
leaves a sweet aftertaste in the palate.

leaves. Contrasting it are trichome-frosted buds with light yellow-orange

commercial potential.

Due to its thick
frame, Sour Banana Sherbet has a strong chance of surviving outdoor conditions
in the northern hemisphere. However, it has to be protected against the extreme
cold, heavy rains, and strong gusts of wind which may either stunt its growth
or kill the plant overnight. Placing it indoors or installing a temporary
enclosing will keep the harsh weather from destroying the batch.

Indoors, it is necessary for one to soak the seeds overnight, so the regular seeds develop into female plants that produce buds. Topping is also essential. Not only will it keep the plant short, but also initiate the flowering period. Its height and compact structure make it a great candidate for both the Sea and Screen of Green method. The former allows growers to cultivate at least four plants in a growing area by maximizing space. Meanwhile, the latter weaves branches into a screen situated above the current canopy to distribute light evenly. Both will significantly increase the creation of budding sites.

Growers can also choose between mediums. Soil brings out the overall flavor of the buds. It is also a better accompaniment to first-time growers. Meanwhile, a soilless medium like a hydroponics setup will hasten the growing process since it delivers nutrients straight to the roots. It also has the potential to double yields and trichome production, albeit it will require some higher knowledge of gardening.
