Mochi Strain


Sherbinskis, a San Francisco-based breeder under renowned Cookie Fam Genetics, has once again lived up to its hype with the Mochi marijuana strain. Although relatively new, the Mochi weed strain has already gained a reputation that would make parent strains Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC proud. The luxurious Mochi strain THC level averages 21%, guaranteeing a potent high to delight any cannabisseur. Gelato 47 and Mochi Gelato are similar strains with slightly higher Indica levels.

Parent strain Sunset Sherbet is the offspring of GSC and Pink Panties, while Thin Mint GSC combines OG Kush and Durban Poison. This formidable combination has created a hybrid that is equal parts Sativa/Indica, delivering a gratifying balance between cerebral and physical high. The Mochi weed strain has taken the best qualities from each parent, sending you on a journey that is as mentally stimulating as it is physically calming.

Mochi strains’ strong GSC heritage produces a plant with indica-dominant characteristics. It is small in stature with short, bushy leaves and a concentration of large buds. These vibrant jade and magenta nugs emerge among a striking mix of red and orange pistils and finish with glimmering trichomes. The resulting appearance makes Mochi marijuana strain both cosmic in appearance and effect.

On the flip side, it creates total relaxation in your body, which is a game-changer for anyone battling insomnia or fatigue. The high creates a stabilizing sense of euphoria and calm, making it a great relief from anxiety, depression, and stress. Mochi also has anti-inflammatory properties, reducing the effects of chronic pain associated with various conditions.

You can take advantage of this dynamic combination by engaging your senses.  Many say visual and auditory stimulation is best, so get comfortable on the couch and put on the most graphic, colorful movie you can find.

Mochi Strain Fragrance

This exquisite fragrance flawlessly compliments the beauty of the nugs. Mochi has a soft, soothing aroma of flower petals and earth, spotted with hints of fruit and the refreshing odor of mint. When the nugs are ground and burned, comforting tones of vanilla and roasted nuts come through.

You can smoke this strain without worrying about any residual stench. Any lingering aroma can easily be mistaken for potpourri.

Mochi Strain Flavors

This strain tastes the way it smells. On the inhale, you get mild hints of fruit with a touch of creaminess. The exhale is more vibrant, with a delicious mix of vanilla, mint, and fruity essence. The sweet and sour contrast of the fruity flavors pairs wonderfully with the smooth smokiness of the earthy vanilla elements. It goes in pleasantly and exists even better.

Mochi Strain Adverse Reactions

The Mochi strain THC level can reach 29%, making it incredibly potent to newbies and experts alike. If it is your first time, it is worthwhile to clear your schedule first. 

The extreme cerebral activity will have you losing all sense of reality while your body slides deeper into sedation until you find yourself couch-locked. Although the high takes time to set in, once it does, it is a slow and steady descent until you have reached full sloth status.

For some users, there is a risk of mild hallucinations as well as paranoia. Contributing factors include your environment, THC tolerance, and dosage, so it is vital to know your limits and ensure you feel safe and comfortable.

If you are planning on smoking a lot, make sure to have snacks on hand. When ingested in large quantities, munchies are inevitable. You may also experience flushed cheeks, pulsing temples, and dizziness associated with a head rush. Unsurprisingly for such a potent strain, you can expect the give-away that is dry eyes. Keep a bottle of eye drops ready, just in case.

The best time to use Mochi is late in the day and, even then, it should be in moderation.
