Information about Sweet Berry:
Northern California is the home of many famous strains including Sweet Berry, a potent bud with incredibly balanced effects. Its impressive mind and body buzz owes its existence to the hybrid’s perfectly split Indica to Sativa ratio.
With such a wide array of powerhouses to choose from, it was not difficult for breeders at the Hillberry Fams to create their own version of excellence. From the award-winning Chernobyl, it took its long-lasting Sativa high. Meanwhile, the Indica buzz is an obvious inheritance from the legendary Blueberry. Despite their differences, both are well-profiled for passing down their citric terpenes.
As a versatile strain, Sweet Berries appeals to a wide audience. Though principally used for recreational purposes, its THC content of 16% to 20% gives it significant therapeutic value to the medical community.

Sweet Berry is a potent strain with fast-acting, balanced effects. A single puff of its berry-flavored smoke delivers a relaxing buzz throughout the body. Its initial onset, however, begins with a happy high that lifts up spirits through its profound euphoria.
The behavioral change is obvious right off the bat. People are not only smiling but beaming from the inside. For most casual users, the upbeat energy gets rid of the mental slump almost literally. After all, the surge of creativity does inspire a clearheaded high and a free flow of innovative solutions.
In time, a tingling sensation begins to course through the muscles from the temples. Though intense, it does not slam the body with a sudden heaviness. Instead, it mimics the rhythmic movement of waves before settling down into each limb.
For this reason, one may use Sweet Berry throughout the day. Although, users should remember to use the bud with restraint. This is because, in large enough doses, the strain can hamper productivity levels.
As its name alludes, Sweet Berry has a sugary sweet and fruity fragrance. As its amber container is opened, powerful overtones of berry with floral undertones permeate throughout the air. Broken apart, the buds release a tangy scent.
Drawn in, Sweet Berry showcases an incredible blend of fruity flavors of apples and blueberries. Equally pleasant is its subdued citric notes of lemon or lime. On the exhale, it leaves a sour chemical aftertaste.
Like other strains, Sweet Berry comes with its fair share of adverse reactions. It usually dries the eyes but, as the cannabinoids inhibit saliva, it also causes a cottonmouth. Though mild, beginners may find the dry spell a little off-putting. In such cases, it is best to down a glass of water.
Being such a potent strain, it is best to consume Sweet Berry moderately. Smoking too much in such a short amount of time can cause slight paranoia. Users with anxiety or those going through some turbulent emotions may also want to keep from taking a hit of the bud.
Apart from CBD, there are countless other chemical compounds in marijuana like THC and terpenes that give a strain its therapeutic value. Through their combined efforts, they provide a reprieve against mental and physical afflictions.
As an anti-depressant, for example, Sweet Berry clears the mind of self-destructive sentiments. Although temporary, it is enough for those with depression or anxiety to feel in control over their lives and their emotions. By extension, the happy high also kicks out stress and curbs away fatigue.
Apart from its psychedelic effects, THC also displays powerful analgesic properties. In high amounts, its soothing high can appease the sudden, violent jerks of muscle contractions. People looking to self-medicate, however, their spasticity should still consult a medical professional.
An evenly split hybrid, Sweet Berry enjoys the best of both Indica and Sativa structures. It boasts sturdy stalks and branches as well as a manageable height. However, growers may still top the plant early to help the plant reach its full potential.
Its buds, on the other hand, are dense and tapered on either one or both ends. Once mature, its colors turn into a lively forest green. Contrasting the backdrop of dark leaves are vibrant flashes of gold, sparse amber hairs, and a thick coat of sparkling trichomes.
Courtesy of Blueberry, it also dons rich royal purple undertones. Although, one may need to expose the plant to cool temperatures once it hits the flowering stage. For this reason, many prefer growing Sweet Berry in controlled environments.
Alluding to Sweet Berry’s potency is its frosty layer of silvery resin as well as pungent scent. While the former is not a problem, apartment growers may need to install carbon filters to keep it from disturbing the neighbors.
With that said, each square meter of Sweet Berry should produce up to 14 ounces of harvest-ready buds by the end of 8 weeks.
Sweet Berry should be ready for harvest by the end of September or early October with each plant producing more than 14 ounces of buds.
