Cherry Pie has a reputation for increasing appetite, so having some snacks around while partaking is a good idea. In general, it creates a joyful and positive vibe all around.
Traits of Cherry Pie
Cherry Pie is a cross between two famous strains, Granddaddy Purple and Durban Poison. Granddaddy Purple is an indica strain with a delicious grapey aroma. Durban Poison is a fast-paced South African sativa that is generally thought to be high in a lesser known cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV).
The result is an indica-dominant hybrid with moderate to high potency. The strain can produce anywhere between 14 and 24% THC.
The higher the THC, the more sedative and heavy-lidded this strain can become. However, samples that test a little on the low side make for great choices for novice cannabis consumers.
Marijuana experts will immediately recognize this strain by its signature scent: a strong sweet berry, tart cherry aroma coupled with a subtle earthiness. No wonder where the name cherry pie came from. These aromas are mirrored in the strain’s sweet cherry and berry flavors, which will have cannabis enthusiasts clamoring for more. The smooth smoke is easy to handle on the inhale, while the exhale reveals some toasted flavors to real marijuana connoisseurs. Those worried about discretion should be warned, this strain is pretty potent when combusted.
Tightly curled leaves are a signature of Indica marijuana, and this strain is no exception. Bright orange pistils streak their way through green leaves and are coated in translucent trichomes, which make these nugs shimmer in the right light.
