About Red Cherry Berry
Red Cherry Berry is an extra-fruity treat with balanced effects and beautiful, multicolored flowers. This hybrid is the brainchild of prolific California-based Barney’s Farm, the creators of Vanilla Kush and Liberty Haze. it is a cross between notoriously pungent Skunk #1 and a North American landrace indica. With moderate levels of CBD, this tasty strain is therapeutic as well as recreationally rewarding. Its THC content ranges from 14% to 22%.
Visually, Red Cherry Berry is a true stunner with jumbo flowers that maintain a solid, almost totally spherical formation. These buds have a typically indica structure, with a compact core and small leaves that coil tightly inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a mossy green and are twisted through with a higher than average number of hairy red and orange pistils. Some phenotypes of the strain also show off traces of lavender, thanks to a combination of cold ambient weather during the growing process and pigments called anthocyanins. Finally, a dusting of white trichomes makes these nuggets extra sticky and ensures their potency.
When properly cured, Red Cherry Berry’s powerful berry aroma floats right to the top, giving off a sweet and slightly tart scent. There’s also a dank, earthy odor lurking underneath, similar to damp soil or a musty basement. Grinding up these buds, meanwhile, yields some of the rich funk of parent strain Skunk. Despite some acrid flavors, Red Cherry Berry gives off a smooth smoke when burnt. This easily palatable smoke carries a sweet and refreshing berry flavor on the exhale.
Red Cherry Berry hits right away with both barrels. At first, smokers may notice a heightened blood pressure in the face, as well as an increase in salivation. Soon after, they may feel waves of relaxation rolling down through their core and radiating out through their limbs. Although this strain is incredibly relaxing from the outset, it’s also mentally stimulating. At the same time as they start to seek out a comfortable seat, users also experience an uptick in theri cerebral thinking patterns. Thoughts can take on an intensified quality and any rambling inner monologues may seem to become progressively louder. While this can be a good way for the busy consumer to accomplish detail-oriented work, it’s also useful for sparking conversation and easy camaraderie in social situations. Red Cherry Berry is unique in that its powerful body high comes alongside definite mental lucidity from the outset. In that sense, it’s great even for less traditionally productive purposes; for example, its relaxing and thoughtful energy is a good way to enjoy some introspective solo time. As time passes, this bud’s sense of body melt tends to intensify and could derail any plans for getting out the door to exercise or to run some errands. In these later stages, enjoy the strain’s psychedelic sensations and trick your perception (particularly, your sense of time) with moody atmospheric enhancements like music or visually-engaging movies. With increased dosage, expect some serious couchlock. Although it allows for concentration throughout the duration of its buzz, Red Cherry Berry’s extended sedation means that it’s probably best enjoyed later in the day when its laid back vibe can be fully appreciated.
Red Cherry Berry’s versatility also gives it a few applications for medical cannabis patients. It may be a boon to those with attention deficit disorder, helping them to sustain focus and concentration. Its upbeat mood may also temporarily improve cases of stress, depression, and anxiety. On the physical side of the spectrum, it may dull aches and pains, whether they’re chronic, as due to conditions like fibromyalgia, or minor, like headaches and nausea. Because its long-lasting body high tends to even out its mental stimulation, Red Cherry Berry is a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Seeds of this fruity strain are available directly through Barney’s Farm. It can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with hot and sunny daytime conditions. Plants tend to be short and bushy, rarely exceeding 3 feet in height. Red Cherry Berry flowers within a quick 7 to 8 weeks and provides a solid yield of about 37 to 46 grams (or 1.3 to 1.8 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.
This therapeutic strain is an excellent way to decompress, whether you’re enjoying it alone or in the company of good friends. It you break it out in a party setting, be ready for its crowd-pleasing aroma to turn some heads.
