Cherry Pie


The Cherry Pie strain has a mouth watering name and its other most attractive quality is its genetic heritage – a cross between two highly respected strains, Durban Poison and Grand Daddy Purple. Just to clear up any confusion, Cherry Pie also goes under the names Cherry Kush and Cherry Kush Pie.

Cherry Pie weed has a smell reminiscent of hash and pine forests and the flavor includes notes of fruit and spice. The high combines a pleasurable cerebral rush with a strong physical stone, although not so strong that you’ll be overwhelmed, making it good for day and night use. Medically, Cherry Pie can help with insomnia, poor appetite and stress.

Cherry Pie plants grow to a medium height with palmate leaves that are a mid-green colour. The dense, sticky buds are light green with purple tips and a covering of orange hairs. THC content ranges from 16 to 18 percent.

Indoors, Cherry Pie marijuana is equally happy to be grown in hydro or soil and it will benefit from a carefully controlled supply of nutrients. Flowering time is eight to nine weeks and yields are between 400 and 450 grams per square metre.

Outdoors, this strain requires a climate at least as warm as the Mediterranean to thrive. Harvest in the northern hemisphere comes in late October.

This is a well-balanced weed that’s quite easy to grow and features a pleasantly fruity flavor. The Cherry Pie strain also packs a powerful hit which even seasoned smokers will appreciate.

The easy to grow Cherry Pie strain will be popular with smokers who like their Kush strains to have a fruity flavour and be easy to grow.

Tips for growing Cherry Pie cannabis

This article is presented by Advanced Nutrients, a global company raising the bud weights and reputations of cannabis growers since 1999.

Strain overview: The combination of Durban Poison and Granddaddy Purple, two highly popular strains, resulted in this sweet and tart-tasting hybrid. Cherry Pie offers a well-balanced high that will allow you to function throughout the day without feeling bogged down.

Grow techniques: Cherry Pie can be grown indoors or out, ideally in soil. It is a clone-only strain, which can make it difficult to acquire, and it is known to have problems self-pollenating. Closely regulating the grow space will help lower the odds of this happening. Prune the plant slowly in cycles so that the plant does not feel shocked or stressed, which often causes hermaphroditic formations. Grown right, Cherry Pie proves to be resistant to diseases and pests.

Grow difficulty: Moderate

Climate: Prefers warmer temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, but keep the humidity low during flowering (40-50% RH).
