Cherry Abacus CBD Flower

One ounce jar Cherry Abacus hemp flower from Sunset Lake CBD

At an impressive 15.8% total CBD, Cherry Abacus isn’t a strain to sleep on… though it may help put you to sleep. As an Indica-dominant cultivar, Cherry Abacus is a good choice for folks trying to unwind at the end of a long day.

Cherry Abacus CBD Flower is the only Indica cultivar in this year’s flower lineup, meaning that if you’re only looking for a before-bedtime strain, look no further.

Cherry Abacus is the only Colorado CBD Seed strain that Sunset Lake CBD grew this year. These hearty little buds have the highest percentage of terpenes by weight— something that should be on terp hunters’ radars.

Cherry Abacus Genetics

Original Cherry x Abacus

Cherry Abacus CBD Flower is a strain from Colorado CBD Seeds. Like many other CBD flower strains, Cherry Abacus can trace its roots back to high-yielding marijuana cultivars. Over time, geneticists over in Colorado bred the THC out of the parent cultivars and encouraged CBD production. This technique created high-CBD buds that look, smell, and smoke like traditional cannabis.

We germinated the Cherry Abacus CBD seeds in 2-inch trays filled with Happy Frog Potting Soil from Fox Farms. Once they were big enough to transplant, we moved the Cherry seedlings to our rows covered with biodegradable plastic to keep soil-born fungi and weeds at bay.

We did not use pesticides or herbicides during germination, the growing, or the flowering phase. Instead, with guidance from the University of Vermont extension school, we used an integrated pest management system. We employed the use of Trichogramma parasitic wasps, assassin bugs, and ladybugs to control unwanted pests. We only used organic fertilizer that we secured from our main farm in Alburgh Vermont.

Cherry Abacus Terpene Profile

Cherry Abacus is a myrcene-dominant cultivar, accounting for nearly half of its impressive 3.3% total terpene weight in this year’s testing sample. The second and third most common terpenes are beta-caryophyllene and alpha-pinene, respectively.

When myrcene is taken with CBD, it’s thought to contribute to the “couch lock” effect, leading many to believe that myrcene may have some sedative effects. Myrcene is also commonly found in mangos and thyme. It may be the amount of myrcene in Cherry Abacus that makes it such a great bedtime strain.

Beta-caryophyllene is an interesting terpene as it’s the only terpene to interact with your endocannabinoid system and provide anti-inflammatory effects. This terpene helps add a bit of spice to Cherry Abacus’s profile as it’s also found in black pepper and cinnamon.

Finding pinene as one of the three top terpenes in a hemp cultivar is quite rare— even though it’s the most abundant terpene found in the natural world. Responsible for, you guessed it, pine smell, pinene is thought to be a bronchodilator meaning that it helps open your airways.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cherry Abacus CBD Flower

What Strain is Cherry Abacus?

Cherry Abacus (and later Cherry Abacus 2.0) are proprietary strains from Colorado CBD Seeds. The original Cherry Abacus strain was introduced to the market in 2016 as a fruity cross between Original Cherry and Colorado CBD Seeds’ flagship strain, Abacus.

Cherry Abacus 2.0 was subsequently released in 2020 as a follow-up to Cherry Abacus’s success. The difference between Cherry Abacus and Cherry Abacus 2.0 is that the latter is the result of a cross between Cherry Abacus and Abacus 2.0. It’s sometimes referred to as “Fruit Loops.”

Is Cherry Abacus Indica or Sativa?

Cherry Abacus CBD flower is an Indica-dominant hybrid strain. Cherry Abacus plants are much more analogous to the Indica flower structure— small, dense, and heavy. What Cherry Abacus CBD flowers lack in size, they make up for in effect.

Does Cherry Abacus Get You High?

Smoking Sunset Lake CBD’s Cherry Abacus CBD flower will not make you feel high or intoxicated.

What Does Cherry Abacus Smell Like?

Cured Cherry Abacus smells of sweet maraschino cherries and crisp Coca-Cola. Some users will even notice more subtle notes like dry red wine underneath the cherry.

Sunset Lake CBD’s Cherry Abacus Reviews

Smooth, delicious flavor. Works well in my herb vaporizer. I love the alternative to thc. Great for my day time anxiety and my nighttime rest. I work from home as a professional artist and this helps me get my creative juices flowing without having the downsides to getting high.

I use a volcano vaporizer. The flavor is nice and taste fresh. I like how the relaxation creeps up on you and you eventually drift off to sleep. It also works pretty good for end of day aches and pains. I also like that i dont get insane munchies from it. I will have to try out the other strains soon.
