Pink Sunset is the lesser known phenotype of Sunset Sherbert but deserves equal recognition. It is a delicious Indica-leaning plant that could pass off as an excellent dessert after dinner. It has a citric and floral terpene profile that hints at the blend of berries and oranges that is to burst in the palate. Upon consumption, growers have a few minutes to get comfortable before its soothing euphoria begins to take effect. It caps the night away, kneading the muscles into relaxation with a tingling buzz that releases stress.
Girl Scout Cookies was used to develop the bud. It has an earthy-flavored profile with prominent Indica effects that melt the body. OG Kush, the originator of many West Coast strains, was later added. The hybrid perfectly balances a range of cerebral and bodily effects. Cherry Pie, on the other hand, contributed to Pink Sunset’s delicious smoke and good-looking buds.
Beyond recreation, it could also provide comfort to patients. Its compounds are also responsible for the reprieve it provides against mental and physical health issues. Through it, patients can manage symptoms of chronic pain, depression, and stress among others.

The perfect end to a busy day, Pink Sunset is a delicious treat that tantalizes the palate and subtly releases any accumulated stress. However, one must remember that it is a highly potent strain with THC levels that could go from a manageable 18% to an overwhelming 27%. Used without stun or lock users to the couch if used beyond personal tolerance levels.
With correct pacing, the onset comes in slowly and gradually. Introducing itself is tingling but gentle rush of euphoria that improves the mood and clears the mind. It also inspires a giggling fit as users slip into a happy mindset.
After 20 to 40 minutes, a heaviness plants itself in the limbs. It makes users feel lazy and lethargic, creating a path that will eventually lead to sleep. Before the drowsiness takes over, it would be best to find a comfortable spot – either on the bed or the couch, whichever is more convenient – so sleep lasts uninterrupted for hours.

Floral hints of lavender overshadow Pink Sunset’s aroma. It is highly citric, consisting of lemon and orange undertones, but exudes a sweet berry once the buds are combusted to counter the tanginess.
Pink Sunset produces a cocktail of flavors; blending berries, oranges, and lemons together. Its smoke is soothing to the throat, opening the lungs at the first inhale. On the exhale, it leaves a fruity aftertaste with a sweet tinge.
Pink Sunset can green users out. It is a condition characterized by dizziness, anxiety, and a subtle feeling of paranoia that is often triggered by consuming beyond one’s personal limit. However, one’s disposition can also be a major factor. As such, apart from practicing moderation, enthusiasts must also be wary of any overwhelming emotions that will react negatively with the psychoactive compounds. Other than that, there is the usual dry eyes and cottonmouth which is unavoidable but highly manageable through hydration.
There are two problems that Pink Sunset is best at relieving – stress and insomnia, conditions that are tightly woven together. Thus, many of the treatments prescribed for relieving one include the management of the other. Pink Sunset offers both benefits. It has potent cannabinoids bind with the endocannabinoids system to deliver a calming head high and soothing body sensation. Similarly, patients experiencing psychological distress may also find an unlikely reprieve from the tropical bud.
In high levels, the same psychoactive compound can also turn to a natural analgesic and anti-inflammatory. It targets inflammations by appeasing swelling and sensitivity, as well as reducing redness. Thus, it could also be used to relieve aches and pains caused by arthritis or cramps. Equally effective with gastrointestinal pains, patients with eating disorders will also find that Pink Sunset facilitates a smoother path for food to travel thereby increasing the appetite.
As alluded to earlier, the comedown is a deep relaxation that provides comfort to tired souls. It lulls users to bed quickly, helping insomniacs fall asleep faster. Its sedating properties also enhance the quality and quantity of slumber.
Pink Sunset is a rather stout plant that peaks at 5 feet, making it an impressive addition to the indoor growery. Moreover, the convenience of adjusting factors like temperature, lighting, and humidity will positively affect its performance. Alternatively, growers could cultivate it in gardens or farms. It is sturdy too and fairly resistant to many common pests and diseases.
It is best used with the Sea of Green method which will coax a single cola and shorten the vegetative period but also improve yields. Regular pruning is necessary in this case since its dense foliage could potentially inhibit air circulation and harbor moisture that develops into mold or mildew. In this regard, growers may also simply install an efficient ventilation system and fans that will reduce humidity.
Being branchy, it could also adapt to the Screen of Green setup. It improves lateral growth by installing a net above the canopy and then weaving the branches into it. This brings up the lower nodes so it receives more light.
It takes Pink Sunset between 7 to 9 weeks to fully flower. Once mature, it produces between 10 to 12 ounces of buds per square meter.
The quick-flowerer produces between the last few days of September to the second or third week of October. It yields at least 12 ounces of buds per plant.
