Cherry Pie is great at uplifting and will alter your mood to make you feel inspired and ready to get creative.


Instead of making you feel slow and ready for a nap, like most indicas would, Cherry Pie does exactly the opposite, by providing you with an extra surge of energy, allowing you to enjoy the buzz even if you are in a social situation.

Cherry Pie is effective in its effects without being overwhelming and overly strong, which is why many users prefer this strain. It allows you to simply kick back, enjoy the smoke, enjoy the flavor and ease into your high slowly and surely.

Cherry Pie Strain Fragrance

This strain’s scent is super dank. Cherry Pie smells just the way it sounds, like a freshly baked Cherry Pie, fresh out of the oven. This hybrid will fill the room with a pleasant tangy sweet-sour scent that is reminiscent of blueberries, cherries and mix of an earthy spice.

Cherry Pie Strain Flavors

The sweetness of this fragrant hybrid is distinct even in the taste of the inhale. Cherry Pie tastes like smoked cherries, cut in with a flavorful earthiness that leaves a sticky-sweet taste on your tongue. The taste of this bud is mild, but there is no doubt that even its hints of berries can make for a very pleasant smoking experience.

Adverse Reactions

Cherry Pie can create a feeling of cottonmouth, making your mouth feel dry, and making you feel slightly dehydrated. This is often also accompanied by an uncomfortable feeling of having dry eyes.

As for any other side effects, this strain can sometimes make you feel a little dizzy, and in rare cases, it may lead to feeling slightly paranoid. Cherry Pie can also create a slight sensation of head pain, sometimes leading to headaches and migraines.


Patients who suffer from symptoms of stress and anxiety, can find renewed peace of mind with this helpful hybrid. Cherry Pie, unlike most indica-dominant strains, has a sativa-like uplifting euphoria, which is why it is also often prescribed to patients who suffer from depression.

This fragrant strain has been effectively prescribed for a number of pain issues. PMS, muscle tension, headaches, migraines and other chronic or minor conditions, have been successfully treated with even small doses of this hybrid, which can help ease the severity of the pains and aches.

Cancer patients often suffer from nausea, due to the chemical treatments they have been exposed to, such as chemotherapy and radiation. This can result to weight loss due to a lack of appetite. Cherry Pie has also been prescribed to encourage a healthier appetite in these patients. A bad case of insomnia may also be treated with this calming strain.

Cherry Pie Strain Strain Review

Melts away anxiety

Rated 5 out of 5

I’ve been a non-smoker for years, but this one had me try vaping for a good reason. I can’t remember the last time my anxiety attacks got the better of me. Cherry Pie makes me giggly but in a controllable way. It smells as good as it tastes, too!


I am currently in the process of outdoor flowering

I had cherry pie it didn’t look apealing at first but dang was it amazing. Took away my chronic nausea and when I get dizzy from low blood sugar it helps take away some of that feeling! Great for friends with low tic tolerance too!!!!


This strain nearly killed me

Rated 1 out of 5
1 May 2020

I smoked a very ordinary-sized joint of something called purple cherry pie while watching a movie. At first, I was really enjoying a nice, crisp high, feeling alert and having all kinds of philosophical thoughts about the movie I was watching. But minutes after I finished the joint, my heart rate all of a sudden skyrocketed and I had severe shakes and sweats, and my legs were like jelly. I had tingling in my fingers and my jaw went numb and I couldn’t stop grinding, my throat was tingly and I couldn’t swallow. I felt like I was either going to fall down from the jelly legs or lose consciousness so I went to see a family member. She said the I’d gone pale like limestone and I was ice cold. I remember trying to tell her what I was feeling and I was talking really, really fast. I was very concerned about my physical reacting but mentally I was extremely lucid and automatically knew how to respond so I was taking deep breaths and I put on some extra layers of clothes and had a snack and spend the next hour or so just sitting down and talking it out. We kept taking my pulse at intervals and it eventually lowered and I was able to go to sleep, but it had been very abnormally high at the beginning- we almost called 911. I’m just really surprised because I read a lot of great reviews of this strain and how it’s used to treat anxiety and has calming effects, it seems to have had the exact opposite effect on me. I literally felt like someone had given me an adrenaline injection straight to the heart. I got it from a highly trusted source and am an accustomed weed smoker, so still trying to figure out whether something went wrong somewhere with the growing, maybe pesticides, or if my system just didn’t absorb it well (or a combination of those factors).
