Start the summer off in 5 Star fashion with a sativa buzz that brightens senses and amplifies the moment with a high that’s made for energetic adventures.
While Apples and Bananas might be the things we tell kids go together, we all know that fruit is much more fun to smoke than to eat. The Apple Sherbet from 5 Star Flower is a cross between Sunset Sherbet and Apple Juice, blending the two parents in a hazy sativa that’s equally perfect for a work day or a trip into the wilderness. With beautiful deep green and purple buds coated in a frosty layer of trichomes, we couldn’t wait to smoke this tasty top shelf flower.
Popping open a jar releases a fresh bouquet of fruits, with an undeniable apple flavor that’s light, refreshing and sweet. As the smell rushes into the nose, a deeper, skunky, sour-gas builds – adding complexity to the flavor and rounding out the strain’s profile as sweet and rich, just like a tasty sherbet. The flower is dense but cured wonderfully, with tightly-trimmed nugs and glistening trichomes that sprinkle kief as the bowl is broken up and loaded.
First tokes are sweet and earthy, with a smooth inhale and minimal expansion, filling the lungs with a warming smoke that exhales cleanly with little-to-no coughing. This is where the quality of the flower shines, through repeated tokes that build up effects and a tangy green apple flavor on the palate.
Initially relaxing during the first wave of THC and terpenes, this strain creeps on the mind and body before pouncing in a sativa surprise – relaxing the body while juicing the mind up for adventure. This is a feel-good strain that puts the mind in the moment while slowing time just enough to enjoy any activity … from simple chores to targeting fish from a bank or a boat.
