The only berry I’d prefer to Halle, this hybrid strain developed by Barney Farms is sure to get you giggling and red-faced as if you had just walked past the actress herself. This product was specifically grown to capture the same characteristics as its parents Skunk#1 and Californian Indica, which together make for a balanced and flavorsome smoking experience. So if you are with friends and have nothing much to do, then light one of these up and watch some trash tv – believe me it makes for a lot of laughs!
Red Cherry Berry can be grown indoors, outdoors and in a greenhouse and is a fairly straightforward plant to grow, allowing even those with even minimal grow experience to have some success. The plant grows to a medium size and flowers around the 7-9 weeks mark, yielding sizable amounts of around 400-550g/m2. So for the effort expended and yield produced, this is a very attractive plant to grow.
Red Cherry Berry buds are large and chunky in size, light green in color and are covered by orange pistils and light white hairs. Flavorwise the bud is reminiscent of the blueberry and cherry candy, almost like those found in traditional convenience stores. Its aroma is equally sweet and also has a pungent skunky whiff to it upon exhale. Overall a really nice strain to smell.
The strains THC levels vary between a modest 14-18% whilst CBD levels can be found anywhere between 1-2%.
Hitting you first in the head, you will notice a sudden rush which makes you feel uplifted, motivated and also quite focused. The buzz will then start to mellow into a body high which at first allows you to function, but after a while will sedate your body into a state of lethargy which can possibly make you couch locked. However quite surprisingly, you won’t necessarily fall asleep from these effects, so this is an ideal strain if you want to chill with some friends and laugh over some old school stories.
Its powerful sedating effects make this strain ideal for treating chronic bodily pains, insomnia and mild cases of depression. Smoking Red Cherry Berry has been reported to also bring some relief to those suffering from headaches.
Like with most powerful strains, the sedating effects can at times be a little uncomfortable for newbie smokers, especially for those who like to have some control of their bodily functions. However do not be alarmed, this hybrid becomes much more enjoyable as time goes on and when the effects start to mellow. The main side effects are your typical dry mouth and dry eyes.
