If like so many of us you fell in love with Girl Scout Cookies (aka GSC), we bet you’ll fall in love with its heir. Scorpino Sherbert is descended from that famously delicious sweet-and-minty cannabis strain, but it picks up qualities of its other parent, the powerful indica Pink Panties. What you end up with is an almost honey-sweet nose mixed with ripe fruit and a hint of skunky citrus on top. How does it feel? You’ll get a strong hit of full-body relaxation, mixed with a surprising blast of cerebral stimulation and energy. Pain and stress go down the drain as you float up to the clouds on this most special of cannabis strains.
