Cherry Pie Strain
Cherry Pie is a popular hybrid strain with parents Granddaddy Purple and F1 Durb. It has dense buds filled with orange hairs and a touch of purple, giving it a sweet and sour cherry pie aroma. The effects of this strain can be felt within minutes and last for a few hours.The Cherry Pie strain is a well-loved cannabis species that originated in California many decades ago. It is mostly consumed as an Indica-dominant hybrid, offering a blend of uplifting and relaxing effects. Users appreciate its genetic combination of Granddaddy Purple (Indica) and Durban Poison (Sativa).
Some cannabis shops and consumers refer to it as “Cherry Kush.” With around 30% Sativa and 70% Indica, its genetics make it a considerably strong strain, with THC levels ranging from 15-25% and CBG around 1%.
Cultivating Cherry Pie is relatively straightforward, whether indoors or outdoors. It thrives in Mediterranean-like climates when grown indoors, and soil or hydroponic methods are commonly used. This strain is resistant to mold, pests, and mildew, making it easier to grow compared to other marijuana species.
To achieve high-quality results, provide essential nutrients and adequate lighting. Proper care ensures healthy plants, which leads to excellent quality herbs and potentially high yields. The flowering period lasts around eight to nine weeks, and the strain is typically ready for harvest in October in the Northern Hemisphere. Outdoor plants produce around fourteen ounces per plant, while indoor plants yield around sixteen ounces per square meter.
The aroma of Cherry Pie perfectly matches its name. It emits a sweet, fruity scent reminiscent of freshly baked cherry pie, combined with organic and earthy undertones. The dank aroma fills the room with a tangy sweet-sour fragrance, featuring hints of earthy spice, cherries, and blueberries.
When it comes to flavor, Cherry Pie offers a uniquely smooth sweetness. It tastes like smoked cherries with an earthy undertone and leaves a sticky-sweet aftertaste. Even a hint of its berries enhances the smoking experience. Proper curing brings out a rich cherry flavor with subtle herbal and floral notes.
In terms of appearance, Cherry Pie stands out from typical weed strains. It has green sugar leaves, orange pistils, and a medium-sized growth pattern. The tightly-curled and densely packed leaves are threaded with vibrant orange pistils. While the leaves are usually mossy green, some phenotypes display purple flashes due to the influence of its Granddaddy Purple ancestry. These colorful buds are covered in translucent white trichomes, giving them a sticky texture and a silver sheen.
