Cherry Pie is a popular hybrid strain born and bred in the San Francisco Bay area of California. True Cherry Pie is a very resonated strain, and the nugs will be very sticky. In terms of aroma, Cherry Pie is most like cherry and wood, with a peppery spice. On the exhale, it tastes just like cherry pie with an extremely smooth yet powerful smoke. This 80% indica and 20% sativa strain is a well-balanced high that makes for a great evening smoke session.
Overview of Cherry Pie
With dense, orange-haired buds and a touch of purple coloration, Cherry Pie is easily recognized and well known for its quick-to-start and long-lasting cerebral effects. Its potency can vary from batch to batch, so with that in mind, it is typically in a range of 19-23% THC. However, real Cherry Pie isn't considered a heavy strain. It's more of a relaxed body melt that warms you up from the inside out.
Potential Positive Effects
Due to Cherry Pie's indica-dominant lineage, its usual effects are euphoric, relaxing, and uplifting. Even though Cherry Pie is 80% indica, its sativa traits are still noticeable. However, if you smoke a bit too much Cherry Pie, it could end up knocking you out. Its high potency is bound to catch up to you at some point!
Potential Negative Effects
With Cherry Pie's high THC content and dominant indica effects, it's common for consumers to feel groggy and even fall asleep. This is not the best strain for active smokers who need to keep a clear head.
Lineage of Cherry Pie
Cherry Pie has become a very popular strain that was born and bred in the San Francisco Bay area of California and comes from a cross between the Granddaddy Purple x Durban Poison strains.
As a commonly misnamed strain, true Cherry Pie is sometimes difficult to come across outside of California, but if it smells like sweet and sour cherry pie, you'll know you've come across the real deal. By being nationally recognized as a strain with superior genetics and as one of the best Bay-Area strains of all time, Cherry Pie is a must-try strain.
Growing Cherry Pie
If you're interested in growing Cherry Pie, you'll be happy to know these plants will do well both indoors and outdoors in a hydroponic or soil medium. Flowering time is 8-9 weeks and you can expect to yield 14-15 ounces per square meter. If you're growing outdoors, Cherry Pie likes warm and wet climates and harvest usually comes in October before the frost.
Make sure you keep a close eye on the nutrients you are feeding your plants as Cherry Pie is a more finicky strain and won't be too forgiving if you're supplying too much nitrogen.
