Sherbinski Gummies Pack A Fruit Punch
Flavors like watermelon and key lime add zest to these indica edibles.
The taste of Sherbinnski’s 5 mg indica gummies are top notch and distinct. With varieties like Key Lime, L’Orange, and Watermelon, I was impressed by how they managed to capture the essential profiles of the flavors. While the Watermelon reminded of the Sour Patch Watermelon candy I loved as a kid — and still do, as an adult — the Key Lime felt elevated, like a higher end pastry rather than a run-of-the-mill diner dessert.
While I don’t normally consume indica edibles in the morning, because I tend to prefer a more energetic medicinal, I wanted to try all three flavors in one day and give enough time to each one.
After a light breakfast, I skipped the OJ, and instead ate a 5 mg L’Orange gummy. After about 45 minutes, I could feel a softening of my environment, like some inner voice was reminding me to slow down and become more aware of my surroundings. It was the exact effet I would expect from a quality microdose. There was a general sense of well-being, without it calling attention to itself. The Sherbinski L’Orange was a subtle facilitator of mindfulness during what turned out to be a hectic morning. It helped me cave out a deep 10 minute meditation, taking my hand off the clutch.
“I was the Grand Marshall of some Cannabis Day parade, waving to old friends from the back of a slow-moving convertible.”
Then, after a heartier lunch, I decided to up the ante a bit and eat two of the Watermelon gummies. The onset was a similar 45 minutes, and with 10 mg as my usual max dosage, I was now firmly in the grips of a deeper and more insightful high. My mind started to spin like a game show prize wheel, and after some deep breathing, I was able to land on “yoga.” The moment moved me and I opened a yoga video on YouTube, with a sunny Australian cuing positions way above my skill level. Still, I gave it my all, aided by my high that had me believing in my flexibility.
Post workout, showing and then laying in my bed made it all worth it. The relaxation was total and complete, and it made me wish I still had those rainforest sounds CD’s I had growing up, meant to try to help me relax. This high was taking me down memory lane, like I was the Grand Marshall of some Cannabis Day parade, waving to old friends from the back of a slow-moving convertible. The overwhelming sensation was a mix of nostalgia, and euphoria, without ever feeling sedated or dragged down.
By the time the Watermelon high faded, I was left with a ravenous appetite that was quickly conquered thanks to a heaping bowl of bowtie pasta from a local Italian restaurant. After finishing some complimentary tiramisu, I took two more 5 mg gummies, Key Lime this time. I didn’t have to wait long at all this time for the first sensations to hit. It came on like a light head buzz and sustained the peak effect for longer than usual. This was a welcome high, as it swept me to the couch and washed away whatever petty concerns I may have been harboring.
It was a great stress reliever, delicious like the other two indica flavors, and did a good job targeting my muscle pains. After losing myself in a Netflix documentary for the night, my eyelids soon became drawbridges. It took a lot of inner strength to get up off the couch and into my actual bed, but once I did I was fast asleep. I woke up in the morning fully refreshed, unable to recall the last time I logged a solid eight hours of sleep.
Each of the Sherbinski gummies worked well with each other, and I had no ill stomach effects with any of the meals I consumed. It actually helped mitigate some aches and pains I’ve been having, and as a sleep aid specifically, the Key Lime took me out. This “edible fruit bowl” from Sherbinski was the sort of self-care Sunday I never knew I needed.
