This strain is easy to confuse with Cherry Pie, another legendary strain, but we assure you that this rare breed is not easy to forget once you’ve tried it. Though the names are similar, Cherry Pie Kush has all of the positives of its predecessor but is delightfully crossed with SFV OG Kush to give this offspring a punch that not even its parents can match.
With THC levels generally falling around 21%, this powerful strain offers users a heady and instant onset of euphoria and relaxation. The sativa-dominant flowers are light green and fluffy with rich orange hairs and orange trichomes covered in visible resin. This sweet coating gives off a deliciously earthy scent accented by sour citrus and berry notes with similarly dank flavors. Like the name suggests, it is heavily cherry flavored on both the nose and tongue.
The Cherry Pie Kush high starts with your mood, kicking into high gear and leaving you happy and a bit giggly right from the start. With tingles rushing from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, eventually you’ll start to fully relax and all of your muscles will let go of any tension they may be clinging to. These pleasing sensations are accompanied by total euphoria and an almost dopey joy you’d be hard-pressed to recreate. The comedown will have you ready for a full night of sleep. As a result, this strain is recommended for evening use.
This strain is great for a myriad of medical uses, but the primary ones include mood disorders such as depression, stress, or bipolar. Because of the powerfully sativa forward effects, users who suffer from the above conditions find the energy of the bud to stave off even the most stubborn symptoms. Because of its ability to relax and sedate the body, it is also ideal for insomnia and pain management. In excess, this strain can agitate anxiety or paranoia in novice users, so please be mindful of your tolerance before indulging too much.
Cherry Pie Kush is a moderate grow with a flowering time of 9 to 10 weeks indoors and a late October harvest outdoors. The yield tends to be fairly average both indoors or out. Beyond this information, specific tips or tricks are hard to come by. Grower experience is recommended, though because the seeds are already a rare commodity, it may be a moot point.
Kush lovers already know that this is bound to be a top-tier bud. It has all the top characteristics of each of its parents with very few of the cons. Enjoy this bud in the evening and embark upon an incredibly uplifting high that rolls into a total body shut down and a great night of sleep.
