What Does Cherry Mean?

A "cherry" refers to the ember that is still burning at the tip of a joint. A "cherry" also happens when the bowl is still lit and doesn't need to be lit again. You can take pulls from the bowl without using the lighter. Typically, part of the cherry on a joint will stay lit for longer than other parts, creating a long rip in the joint.


Maximum Yield Explains Cherry

Cherry is also a flavor profile that characterizes certain strains of cannabis. They're mostly grown on the West Coast from California to Washington, with the Emerald Triangle producing strains such as Cherry Bomb and Cherry OG.

Cherry Kush is a mix of Purple Afghani and OG Kush. This strain is known as Cherry Pie. Many cherry crosses exist, with most of them being hybrids. One of the characteristics of cherry strains is that the buds are smaller and darker than other kinds. These slightly resemble cherries as they have a visible reddish tone. Cherry is used for both recreational and medical use. Most of them are crosses between indicas, and sativas.
