Cherry Bomb Strain

When breeders develop new strains, they often consider certain characteristics of the parents that they intend to breed and from there, choose the specific traits to highlight and reflect in the overall profile of the child strain.

Some prefer their creations to have distinct fruity flavors with varying potency. Others are known to produce some of the most medically valuable strains in the market while a few of them, on the other hand, focus particularly on improving a strain’s particular characteristic.

That being said, it is not surprising for users to come across a strain that has the best of both worlds. In fact, a lot of breeders would proudly emphasize the most notable traits of a child strain that have been inherited from its parents which, of course, is good for the image of both the breeder and the child strain.

Take this one particular cannabis variety named Cherry Bomb, for example. Although this strain’s origin is a bit vague, one thing is for sure. Cherry Bomb is a product of well-chosen parent strains that have been carefully and successfully bred to near perfection.

There happens to be no precise information as to the lineage of Cherry Bomb. What the cannabis community can agree on, however, is the fact that this hybrid strain’s parents are more likely to be a North American Indica and a Hawaiian Sativa.

One theory involves the Big Bomb and an unknown strain with a distinct fruity flavor. Considering the overall profile of Cherry Bomb, this theory is perhaps the most reasonable one.

    First of all, Cherry Bomb is said to be an Indica-dominant strain. However, the exact ratio of its Sativa to Indica concentration is unclear. So, given that fact and the strain’s maximum THC level of 26%, users can quickly make conclusions as to its overall high. Surprisingly, the high is not entirely as overwhelming as its profile would suggest.

    Cherry Bomb’s effects can be classified as mild to moderate. The onset is pretty quick and immediate though, but this cerebral effect is more of a functional high that a spacey high. It makes users feel happy and focused. The mental alertness it provides allows users to continue with their daily tasks.

    Surprisingly, Cherry Bomb does not offer an overly powerful Indica effect despite the fact that it is mostly Indica. Instead, its physical high is more of a mild body relaxation that does not encourage the possibility of a couchlock which makes one think that perhaps Cherry Bomb has a perfectly balanced Sativa and Indica concentration.

    All these facts make Cherry Bomb a perfect strain choice for daytime consumption as it gives the user enough motivation to get things done during the day and then rewards them with a calming relaxation later on.

    If there is anything else more justifying about the quality of Cherry Bomb to support why it is named as such, it has to be its aroma. It does have this delightful fruity and cherry fragrance that are accented by musky and skunky notes which takes its overall aroma to the next level.


    Naming a strain Cherry Bomb could bring out the expectation that the strain should taste as such. Indeed, Cherry Bomb offers an explosion of intense cherry flavor with a little woody and musky undertones that only make things even better.

    Adverse reactions

    Unfortunately, as deliciously potent as this strain is, it is nowhere near perfect. Cherry Bomb, just like every cannabis variety in the market, can still cause a few adverse reactions here and there.

    For one, it is very likely to result in dry mouth. Other cases may even involve dry eyes and mild headaches. Also, a few incidents include users feeling dizzy and paranoid which, although relatively rare, are the things that users should be more careful about.


    With a whopping 1.34% of maximum CBD level, Cherry Bomb is one of the favorites among medical marijuana users.

      There are varying opinions as to the level of difficulty when it comes to cultivating Cherry Bomb. However, what expert growers could agree on is the fact that Cherry Bomb is a high yielding strain with tons of flavors to brag about.

      Apparently, it is very rare for high yielding strains to have such amount of flavors, so Cherry Bomb takes the list of being one of the few strains that can preserve its flavorful properties while producing several buds in a single harvest.

      Furthermore, the strain may be grown indoor or outdoor. Indoor cultivation may be done using a SCROG or a hydroponic setup. Growers may even choose to grow the plant directly on the soil as this is said to be the best way of bringing out the strain’s cherry flavors. Outdoor cultivation, on the other hand, requires cooler temperatures for the plant to thrive.

      Flowering Time


      Indoors, Cherry Bomb’s flowering stage should last about 8 to 10 weeks which will, later on, produce an impressive yield of up to 22 ounces per square meter.


      Given the perfect growing conditions outside, the buds of Cherry Bomb should be ready for harvest by late September to early October. This time, the yield can reach as high as 26 ounces or more per plant.

        1. Strain doesn’t have a million pheons so usually a 5 pack will land you a keeper. Let her go full 11 weeks in flower for the best Tric’s ,Best Smell, Taste and yield. This strain smells cherry and berries and taste like candy Cane, no joke. Also after a cure it has a smell like very sweet hard rock candies. Very good work From the breeders at bomb seeds.

        2. The real Cherry Bomb From Bomb Seeds has about 3 or 4 phenotypes, and 1 or 2 dominant Phenotypes. You have to allow her to mature all the way no matter which Pheno you get. There’s a Golden Bronze Pheno it finishes the fastest in 7 weeks from the onset of flowering. The silver pheno is a bit longer. The purple pheno is the longest and the most Cherry flavousome. But the main Cherry Bomb Pheno it’s a reasonably large plant large yielder indoors.. gets a bit tall, yields pretty big, is covered in white trichomes, and has the strongest smelling flowers you will encounter bar none!! There’s an underlying Skunk aroma but the gem of the senses is this pure Artificial Cherry Flavoring scent!! It smells like artificial Cherry Lollies.. you won’t get this with anything else not cherry pie not cherry OG.. None of it has what the real deal Bomb Seeds Cherry Bomb has.. I can tell you for all the bullshit you read or hear,, what Cherry Bomb is is it’s Cherry Skunk!! That’s what it is. Cherry Skunk. When it comes to smoking, man I tell you what, you can’t beat it !! You’ve got that filth Skunky undertone masked with artificial Cherry Flavoring .. Cherry Fruit loops whatever you wanna call it.. it’s BOMB SHIT!! Once I fucked with Cherry Bomb I don’t bother with anything else because yeah there are faster flowering goodens out there like.. Blue Kripple.. or.. other big Skunk Hybrids .. or.. nice Mango Strains aka Super Skunk Big Skunk Korean Jack Herer.. aka Mango aka SoMango.. etc.. but even the creme of the crop can’t touch it.. you tell me what could be better then a big yielding cherry Flavoured Skunk..? Nothing. Been there done that.. fucked with them all.. None smell like Cherry Lollies x skunky Filth. Not GDP not GG4 not Sherb Strains not cookie Strains.. defiently not anything OG or kush.. I tried for years to find something that can hang with the big girls.. aka the big Skunk Hybrids.. and nothing can.. my opinion is ,

          If you want the best of the best creme dela creme.. Cherry Bomb!!

          If you can’t wait an extra 2 weeks then go with Blue Kripple..

          Both a big yielding Skunk Hybrids and both are fruitylicious Skunky Filth.

        3. We added this Strain into our growing staple Due to A: my wife’s favoritism to this strain and also the fact that it’s the 1st cannabis strain in 10 years that hasn’t gave me anxiety. It is a completely different result to any other strain in the world and we’ve grown every strain worth mentioning and we like to do half what I choose half what my wife choose and then make it a little competition of who wins each grow and we have a former Amsterdam cannabis cup judge who is my uncle and so he decides the winner each time and to this day cherry bomb has been a big winner for us so we made it part of the furniture! I’ve done it multiple times, am doing it right now and have bulk amounts of seeds. We had a few main phenotypes, 1 that becomes So so sweet after cure and when growing actually turns entire plant turns a cherry purple color.. a sticky 1. Another pheno is a very silvery white very crystal very very white pheno I call her Nikki Snow. And another pheno she comes to me as a fast flowering like ready in 7 weeks.. type girl who basically turns completely golden all over all the Crystal’s turn golden. This is the preferred pheno in certain circles although I personally prefer the big ugly unravelled sativa looking purple pheno. Anyhow, love it. Shes a staple strain and I’m definitely considering crossing her with some other of our favorites. Thanks a heap Bomb Seeds!!
