The Sheriff Strain

The Sheriff packs a punch that is strong enough to topple even the mightiest of outlaws. Measured at up to 19%, using a little over excess can shake reality to the core. In moderation, however, it brings a sense of clarity.

Of course, this comes as no surprise. With parents like Chemdawg 91 and SFV OG Kush, this is only to be expected. Both are renowned for their mental upliftment and satisfying Sativa high. They also provide medical users with a reprieve through their exceptional THC levels.

    Gradually, the Indica effects begin to intensify. A heaviness cradles users into a dream-like state. And, in waves, the warmth spreads over the body and envelops it in relaxation. Finally freed of both mental and physical tension, the sedating high sinks users to their couches before drifting off to the land of fantasies.

    Though potent in its own right, The Sheriff is neither overbearing or overly stimulating. For this reason, it is best used at night before bedtime.


    Like other descendants of OG Kush, The Sheriff inherited a pungent citric scent that is largely reminiscent of lemons. Enhancing it are refreshing notes of pine and spicy herbs.


    Strongly carrying over to its flavor is The Sheriff’s spiciness. Though a little harsh at the first draw, an herbal aftertaste soothes the throat before hints of woody pine wash over the palate.

    Adverse Reaction

    Regardless of the strain, consuming marijuana leads to dehydration. Users will likely feel their eyes redden or their throats dry as the cannabinoids begin to curb the production of saliva. Such symptoms are barely noticeable and quite mild. But, for first-timers, the dry spell can get quite uncomfortable.

    In such cases, it is good to have a drink. Although, users susceptible to increased heart rates, like those with anxiety or arrhythmia, may want to avoid overly caffeinated drinks. It is also not wise to pair The Sheriff with alcohol. Otherwise, the effects can be devastating. The safest bet is always a glass of water.


    Presumably, most people use The Sheriff to alleviate stress. After all, American studies have shown that almost a third of users use it for that particular reason. Still, it is excellent for managing other mental and physical afflictions.

    With its cerebral buzz, it delivers an uplifting high that naturally enhances and stabilizes the mood. Used as an anti-depressant, it keeps people with depression, anxiety or other mental conditions like PTSD from spiraling into a cesspool of self-destructive thoughts and emotions.

    The Sheriff also has physical benefits. For example, its high THC levels comprise analgesic properties that ease a variety of aches and pains. From the temples to the rest of the body, its soothing high relieves headaches, backaches, fatigue as well as those caused by sudden muscle contractions like cramps. Its best use, however, is temporarily appeasing ocular hypertension or pressure in the eyes.

    As the high wanes, the full impact of the heavily sedating buzz drowns out all attempts of staying awake. In all likelihood, users will end up drowsing off to sleep.

      Far from the tough image its name conjures, The Sheriff is actually quite sensitive. It has low resistance against common diseases and is easily affected by sudden changes in weather. As such, it is best suited for greenhouse growing. In this way, commercial breeders can perfectly monitor and adjust deciding factors such as lighting, temperature, and humidity.

      Because of its Sativa leaning structure, The Sheriff tends to grow thin and tall. Applying techniques like Low-Stress Training and early topping, however, will help save space and control the plant’s height. Meanwhile, pruning burnt leaves will ensure nutrients are directed toward yielding bigger, denser buds that take on the shape of pepper.

      There remains one big problem: The Sheriff is one of the most elusive strains in the planet. As of writing, its original breeders have not made its seed available in any platform.

      Flowering Time


      The Sheriff flowers between 10 to 12 weeks with each square meter producing up to 16 ounces of buds. Seasoned growers may apply the Screen of Green method to shorten the blossoming phase to 9 weeks as well as encourage higher yields.


      Like other plants, The Sheriff thrives when exposed to natural sunlight and a warm climate. However, green thumbs will need to ensure their gardens are well-aerated as this will help yield more than 16 ounces of fluffy buds before the end of October.
