Cherry Do-Si-Do is a cultivar initially brought to the dessert table by Midwest Best as the indica-leaning hybrid child of the original Do-Si-Dos strain and Phantom Cookies, which itself is descended from Cherry Pie and the legendary Grandaddy Purps.
This enticingly sweet flavor has now been brought back to the bakery by Yada Yada, a brand produced by Southern California cultivator Pacific Dutch, known for their quality greenhouse cannabis. According to the company, their mission was to make a brand of flower that’s just easy, and they seem to have done a pretty impressive job of keeping things simple. Good bud for good prices. Easy breezy, indeed.

The scent was extremely muted when I first opened the bag, which surprised me, but even more surprising was the wonderful variety of pleasant cannabis odors that jumped out when I actually broke the buds open. This bag included a small Boveda terpene shield, so the lack of a strong smell initially could be attributed to that, instead preserving all the lovely nuances and notes of this strain within the frosty little nugs themselves until popped open. There was a dominant presence of ripe cherries in the scent, with a pastry-like edge of extra sweetness and bright floral chords, along with a dab of honey. The overall odor was quite charming, very light and fruity, and definitely lived up to the sugary dessert profile I expected from this strain.
The buds were small to medium sized and tight, manicured and preserved well. They were fairly frosty with vibrant shades of green, flecked in purple and magenta hues at the edges, and spotted with deep orange hairs. Layered with bright trichomes, these nugs broke up nicely and maintained a good amount of body when cracked open.
There was lots of juicy cherry present, with a rosy bouquet underneath, not much skunk here but instead a bright floral and berry profile. The taste was creamy and sweet, with a satisfyingly sugary finish that made me crave more of this flavor, even though I was already pretty lifted.
My bag was part of batch CDD-10-4-190 and was packaged on April 15, 2022. Listed with 28.39% THC content and price tag of under 30 bucks, I found the high very smooth and not too overpowering, leaning more towards an indica experience with a heavy dose of muscle relaxation and stress relief. It left me a little stuck but didn’t knock me out completely, making for a decent daytime high experience, even though it did ultimately make me feel a little lazy. This strain is great for kicking back and binge watching a favorite show or just melting into the background for a while. Roll some of this up and yada yada, you’ll probably have a good time.
