Cherry Bomb is a well-balanced hybrid that makes for a good all-purpose smoke. Born from an unnamed California Indica and fabled Mr. Greengenes landrace sativa from Hawaii, this bud offers mental engagement that’s tempered by a calm physical sedation. Its dank and fruity flavor only serves to complement this multilayered high. Consumers outside the U.S. should note that Netherland-based company Bomb Seeds also offers a strain named Cherry Bomb, with more indica-heavy effects and roots in perennial favorite Big Bud.
Cherry Bomb has true bag appeal, wowing buyers with its medium to large-sized flowerse. The buds have a seemingly hybridized structure, dense and compact at their center like many indicas, but with fluffy, loose leaves that seem more characteristic of sativa varieties. The leaves are a pale sage green, athough some phenotypes of Cherry Bomb boast faint shades of purple; these latter hues come about when pigments called anthocyanins are stimulated by cold weather during the growing process. Finally, a coating of sticky, icy white trichomes ensure the buds’ psychoactivity.
