Mmmm, did someone say pie? This tasty Cherry Pie strain, also known as Cherry Kush, is an indica-dominant hybrid that is crossed between two famous strains, the Durban Poison and Granddaddy Purple (GDP). A rare breed, the Cherry Pie consistently measures above average in THC content compared to other indicas, reaching as high as 25%, making it highly sought after by indica lovers and medical users of cannabis. With a sweet flavour profile reminiscent of a freshly baked fruity dessert and a euphoric, highly effective body high without being too overpowering, the Cherry Pie strain is truly a unique and tasty strain that is excellent for recreational usage and self-managing stress!
Effects of Cherry Pie
Cherry Pie is a nicely balanced strain that offers some of the best effects of both indica and sativa types. The high starts of building slowly, and as it progresses, users will experience a pleasant sense of physical relief and calmness, with aches, strains and mood being lifted. As your stress, headaches or pains are carried away by the blissful high of this amazing strain, a cerebral high also kicks in as your mind focuses and you further enter a state of euphoria. Despite it being so deeply relaxing on the body, users will still be able to engage in day to day activities due to the sharpened focus and a boost of creativity, which makes Cherry Pie useful for artists or those struggling with ADD/ADHD and/or hyperactivity. Its sense of calmness and relaxation would also help alleviate those struggling with depression, PTSD and anxiety, or simply if you’re having a particularly stressful day.
The Cherry Pie strain is indica dominant with 80% indica to 20% sativa. The THC content of the strain ranges between 14%-24%, but tests have found it can reach as high as 25% potency. It also contains 1% CBN. Its parent, Durban Poison, a pure sativa, is a cannabis community favourite with 24% THC, 1% CBD and 1% CBN. Its other parent, Granddaddy Purple, is also an indica-dominant strain with 17%-27% THC and 1% CBD. It is apparent that with these genetics, Cherry Pie is bound to be a popular choice for users seeking an effective and potent indica-dominant strain!
Appearance & Aroma
A densely packed, small to medium sized bud, the Cherry Pie strain is a pale, mossy green with orange pistils. It is further decorated with undertones of purple, a trait it takes on from Granddaddy Purple, and a layer of trichomes that gives it a glistening white sheen. The aroma and flavour profile may be obvious due to its name, though it encompasses a bit more than just tart cherries and freshly baked pastry crust! There are notes of florals, herbal earthiness and sweet blueberries that are also noticeable in both its aromas and flavours, so it really is more like eating a tasty mixed-fruit pie in the middle of a botanical garden; the Cherry Pie is truly a unique profile with its blend of herbs and florals, and as one of the only few cherry-flavoured strains on the market. You do not want to miss out on this delicious and rare dessert strain!
