About Cherry Cream Pie
Cherry Cream Pie is an indica-dominant strain with a deep, memorable flavor. Created by well-known growers Exotic Genetix, this hybrid is a cross between the tasty staples Cherry Pie and Cookies and Cream -- what results is a colorful bud with a relaxing and particularly long-lasting high. Cherry Cream Pie’s THC content ranges from a modest 10% to 18%.
Cherry Cream Pie sets itself apart with large, eye-catching flowers. These buds tend to have chunky or irregular shapes. They also have an internal structure that blends indica and sativa influences, with a dense center but elongated leaves that twist outward at their fringes. The leaves themselves are the real highlight here, showing off a patchwork of pale green, yellow and purple hues. Curly orange trichomes provide even greater color contrast, as do a high volume of translucent white trichomes.
Once properly cured, Cherry Cream Pie has an aroma that seems mostly earthy on initial inspection, with notes of musk and skunk. A deeper, whiff, meanwhile, may pick up on some bright cherry and berry scents as well. When broken apart or ground up, Cherry Cream Pie yields a hint of fresh pine. Burning the flowers in a pipe or a joint gives off a smooth, easily ingested smoke that’s easy on the lungs. On the exhale, this smoke leaves behind a creamy, slightly sweet flavor.
As with most other indica-leaning strains, Cherry Cream Pie has a slow, creeping high that can take several minutes before becoming apparent. Eventually, consumers will feel a mounting pressure around the temples and lower forehead as well as tics like a stimulation of the salivary glands. What follows these sensations is an altered state, characterized by an uptick in cerebral thinking. Smokers may find their thoughts moving more quickly or seeming to take on a new complexity; some may be launched on a freely associative “trip” in which they’re drawn to inexplicable connections between seemingly unrelated things. All this engaged thinking can take the form of work productivity in properly focused conditions. In social settings, meanwhile, it may transform into chattiness and friendly vibes.
As time passes, this mental high begins to morph into something more laidback and dreamy. Formerly thoughtful consumers may experience start to experience sensory distortions like slight auditory or visual hallucinations; a psychedelic sense of time dilation is also commonly reported. As these hazy properties sink in, users may also feel physically relaxed, freed from any persistent muscular tension as Cherry Cream Pie facilitates deep and even breathing. Increased consumption may push this body stone even further, leading to total couchlock for those who are already lounging in the comforts of home. Better suited to lazy activities in its later phases, Cherry Cream Pie is recommended for afternoon through evening enjoyment.
Cherry Cream Pie’s versatile properties can have several uses for medical cannabis patients. Its initially acute mindset can aid focus for those with attention deficit disorders. Additionally, its mood-boosting qualities can temporarily banish the difficult symptoms of stress and depression. Physically speaking, this strain may take the sting out of temporary as well as chronic, disease-related aches and pains. Its anti-inflammatory effects, meanwhile, may relieve common discomforts like cramps and headaches. In a totally relaxed set and setting, Cherry Cream Pie can generate enough sedation to lead to deep, fulfilling sleep. However, because it comes with some risk of paranoid, recursive thinking, this strain is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
