The odd name for this weed makes sense when you realize that it’s a product of two extremely popular and potent strains with a GSC lineage, Sherbet, and Gelato.

Sherblato is a more potent sativa-dominant hybrid (70% sativa/30% indica) that may taste even better than its delicious parents; it’s loaded with fruit and citrus flavor, along with hints of nuts and diesel.

The effects of this strain may be the perfect example of “getting stoned.” The head high is euphoric, uplifting, creative, and social, and it’s accompanied by a tingly, comfortable body stone that isn’t overpowering or couch-locking. The experience can become hazy for some users, though.

The exact origin of Sherblato isn’t known, but it’s a relatively new strain that’s been a huge hit on the West Coast.


Sherblato’s high doesn’t last as long as many other strains’, so it doesn’t waste any time hitting the user hard.

The cerebral buzz is strongly euphoric, wiping away anxiety, stress, and thoughts of day-to-day burdens. It starts as an energetic and creative feeling, but it doesn’t necessarily allow you to jump into tasks at work; the head high becomes hazy or dreamy for many users, making focus and productivity difficult.

The body stone comes on more like tingles than sledgehammers. It becomes a peaceful, relaxing, and stoned experience, making the couch seem like a good place to sit for a while but not usually locking you there. You won’t feel tired or lethargic when smoking Sherblato; you’ll just be happy, comfortable, content, and able to enjoy the experience.

This strain isn’t totally off-limits for daytime use since there isn’t a heavy body buzz, and the head high can be creative for a while. Sherblato is better, though, for evening or weekend enjoyment with friends or while binge-watching a new show on Netflix.

Bottom Line: Sherblato is a great weed for getting completely blazed. The head high starts out euphoric and energetic but can become hazy, while the body buzz is relaxing and peaceful without being sedating.

Positive Effects:

  • Energy: 2/5
  • Creative: 3/5
  • Pain: 4/5
  • Stress: 5/5
  • Sleep: 2/5
  • Mood: 5/5

Side Effects

Like most weed, Sherblato can bring on cottonmouth and dry eyes, and possibly dehydration. And like most high-THC weed, it can bring on unwelcome side effects for newbies, users with anxiety issues, or those who smoke too much.

Dizziness, headaches, increased anxiety, and paranoia are all possible, but they’re rare among experienced smokers. It’s a good idea to take things slowly with this strain.

Negative Effects:

  • Paranoid: 2/5
  • Dry Mouth: 4/5
  • Dry Eyes: 4/5
  • Lethargy: 2/5
  • Cough: 3/5

Medical Conditions

Medical patients say that the cerebral effects of Sherblato are ideal for eliminating the recurring negative thoughts and daily concerns that are issues for those dealing with clinically-diagnosed stress, anxiety, or depression. Even people with lower levels of stress and anxiety say those problems vanish with a few hits of this weed.

Sherblato’s low-key body stone isn’t as effective for chronic and serious pain, according to MMJ users, but the strain’s ability to boost mood and shift a smoker’s focus may help ease issues like aches and pains, headaches, and menstrual cramps. It may also help with chronic fatigue and appetite problems because it tends to energize users and bring on the munchies.

Flavor and Aroma

In a word: yum. As soon as you open a bag or jar of Sherblato, you’ll start smiling; the sweet and sour tropical fruit and citrus scent of this weed may remind you of candy you enjoyed in your childhood — or earlier in the day. There are slight notes of diesel and nuts in there as well, and they become more prominent once you’ve lit up.

The strain’s taste is yummy, too: fruity and citrusy but light rather than overpowering. You may notice fuel and nuts in the aftertaste, but this is the delicious weed you’d expect from two very tasty parents.

Flavor and Aroma Ratings:

  • Earthy: 4/5
  • Citrus: 4/5
  • Fruity: 5/5
  • Spice: 2/5
  • Wood: 2/5

Cannabinoids and Terpenes

With an average THC content of 21%, Sherblato delivers a heavier punch than you might expect from its aroma and taste. And that average THC level means you may find flower that’s even more potent in retail outlets. There are only very low levels of CBD and other cannabinoids in this strain.

The terpenes that get most of the credit for Sherblato’s fruity characteristics include limonene, carene, ocimene, bisabolol, and phellandrene. There’s also caryophyllene and myrcene in the terp profile, explaining the hints of diesel and nuts.


It’s not known who came up with the idea of crossbreeding two fabulous dessert strains, Sherbet and Gelato, but they deserve a lot of credit. Some believe a West Coast cultivator was behind the creation of Sherblato since that’s where the weed is most popular. However, it turns out that California’s Flavor Chasers are the breeders who widely distribute this weed out West.

Sherbet and Gelato are each directly descended from the Girl Scout Cookies line. And with citrusy Pink Panties and fruity Sunset Sherbet also in its lineage, it’s no wonder that Sherblato ended up so delicious.

Where to Buy Sherblato Seeds

While Sherblato seeds are said to be somewhat rare, a number of online vendors do carry them. Strain Supermarket, Seed City, and Chosen Seeds carry the strain’s feminized seeds supplied directly from Flavor Chasers, so they’d be your best bet.

Similar Strains

Those looking for weed that’s much like Sherblato might be best off going with one of the strain’s tasty parents, Sherbet or Gelato. Other possible choices include Warlock, Chocolate Marshmallow, or Flo OG.

Sherblato Strain Review: FAQ

Q: Is Sherblato a productive strain?
A: Not particularly. It can be expected (under ideal growing conditions) to give you 2-4 ounces per square foot indoors and as much as six ounces per plant for outdoor crops.

Q: How high do Sherblato plants grow?
A: The strain’s sativa genetics shine through when you grow Sherblato. The plants can reach 5-7 feet tall, so it’s best to train them when growing outdoors and top them if your crop is planted in a grow room.
