The genetics of Cherry Pie can be traced to the tasty combination of Grand Daddy Purple mixed with F1 Durban [F1 x Durban Poison]. It’s rare to find the real, sticky Cherry Pie that smells and tastes like thin-mint, but when you do… you will know. With superior genetics like that, it is no surprise this strains gained national recognition as one of the best Bay-Area strains of late.
Some believe Cherry Pie is actually just a revamped version of Cherry Kush (yes it is different) that has been re-named, re-constructed, and re-promoted by Bay-Area growers in the last couple of years. We would disagree, and say that its reputation is well deserved either way. Cherry Pie will make even the most experienced smokers appreciate its full-bodied effects and subtle burnt cherry pie flavor.
“There are a lot of popular websites & YouTube channels commonly mislabeling the genetics of Cherry Pie…”
These Cherry Pie buds have beautiful bursts of color — mostly dark purple, forest green, and maroon. Maybe I have been spoiled lately, but I’ve come to expect really dense buds that are covered in trichomes every time I buy a batch of Cherry Pie. The structure of the buds are typically Indica looking, like little dense Christmas trees.
The aroma of Cherry Pie is most similar to cherry, wood, and pepper spice. With a distinct cherry taste on the exhale, the smoke is extremely smooth, but will hit you like an iron fist. Completely smothered in resin, the trichome count seems to multiply when breaking open these STICKY buds.
