Cherry Wine CBD: Strain Review

Genetic Lineage of Cherry Wine CBD

Cherry Wine took CBD smokers by storm in 2019 when it became a staple strain that almost all major CBD flower vendors had on their menus.

It became so popular for its excellent mix of flavor, aroma, effects and beauty. It was one of the first major hemp strains that was smooth and delicious to smoke with was a breath of fresh air for hemp flower that was otherwise known for leaving consumers with a bad cough and a headache.

Cherry Wine is a cross breed of The Wife and Charlotte’s Cherries.


Cherry Wine CBD Review

Cherry Wine needs to be sold with a THC percentage below (or equal to) .3% in order to legally classify as CBD flower. Anything above .3% and it is considered cannabis which is regulated and sold in a different way depending on the state that you are in.

Please note that it’s only the delta-9 THC that needs to be below the legal limit and not the total THC. Total THC includes delta-8 THC as well.

Cherry Wine is a 50/50 hybrid which makes it a perfectly balanced strain that leaves you feeling great overall. There is a sense of calm and relaxation that comes over you within minutes of smoking but there is no real tiredness of couch-lock feeling that is commonly associated with indica strains.

As the effects sink in you’ll likely feel a growing optimism or pleasant euphoria that puts a smile on your face and spring in your step.

I’d say that Cherry Wine is one of those strains that meets you wherever you are. It’s a chameleon of a CBD strain that figures out exactly what you need and gives it to you.

Common use cases for Cherry Wine are;

  • Restlessness
  • Pain
  • Depression
  • Inflammation
  • Stress
  • Improving focus
  • Pure smoking pleasure

Flavor Profile

Cherry Wine is an accurate name on so many levels. There is a sweet and sour flavor or ripe cherries picked right from the tree. Break the buds apart or put them in a grinder and feel how a scent of sweet cherry syrup slips out.

As a second flavor note, you’ll get some cheese and gas flavors that round out the sweetness of the initial taste.

Overall a delicious strain that will be around for years to come. The flavor of Cherry Wine is best experienced in a Mighty dry herb vaporizer.

Dominant terpenes:

  • Farsenene
  • Limonene
  • Myrcene
  • Linalool
  • Caryophyllene


Once again it’s cherries that dominate the aroma of this strain. You’ll get a more pungent smell once you start to break the beautiful nugs apart. Smell your grinder or smell your fingers because the very pleasant sweet aroma is worth an extra whiff.

You can pick out a sour berry-like scent as well as cheesy undertones as you spend more time breathing in the buds.


Cherry Wine is one of the first CBD strains that came out with crips beautiful buds that had some frosty trichome formation and red and yellow pistils.

The buds are deep green with a darkish hue to them and are medium to large in size.

A great version of Cherry Wine from Cannaflower (ex Berkshire CBD) with delightfully sweet notes of cherries and potent effects.

If you smoke for pure pleasure, this might become your favorite CBD strain to date.

American Shaman


American Shaman CBD is best known for their top tier CBD tinctures and topicals but their small line of CBD flower and pre rolls are actually of surprisingly high quality for a “non-flower brand”.

They also offer really good CBG flower if you want to buy more than just Cherry Wine.
