About Pie Face
Pie Face is an indica-leaning strain with a complex flavor profile. This bud was created by Archive Seed Bank, the producers of strains like Golden Ticket and Memory Loss, and is a combination of tasty Cherry Pie and potent Face Off OG. This bud’s well-balanced high can complement a variety of activities while its long-lasting potency is sure to appeal to cannabis newcomers and veterans alike. Pie Face’s moderate THC content has been measured at between 16% and 19%.
Pie Face is marked by solid medium to large-sized buds. These flowers have a slightly elongated silhouette and a spadelike shape, tapering down from a broad base to a pointed end. The fragrant nuggets cling together in a dense, indica-typical bud structure, with their leaves coiled tightly inward. The leaves themselves are a mossy green and are theaded through with dark, rust-colored pistils. Finally, a profusion of cloudy white trichomes covers the inner and outer surfaces of these thick buds, giving them a sticky texture and accounting for their high psychoactivity.
On initial inspection, Pie Face’s flowers seem to have inherited parent strain Cherry Pie’s bright cherry aroma. Hanging underneath are some herbal and floral notes that have an almost medicinal character. Meanwhile, grinding up these buds gives off a pungent skunky odor. Burning Pie Face’s flowers results in a smooth, pleasant smoke. This smoke tastes simultaneously fruity and herbal on the exhale.
Pie Face offers a creeper of a high, taking as long as 15 minutes after smokers have savored its flavor before revealing its effects. Users may eventually notice a concerted pressure around the eyes and temples, along with a surge in euphoria. As they adjust to this new frame of mind, consumers may begin to notice some strange changes in sensory perception -- certain sights or sounds may take on a new intensity and depth perception may become notably impaired or distorted. If not too overwhelmed by these trippy phenomena, smokers can seize upon an uptick in cerebral thinking. Thoughts may jump from one to the next with speed and confidence. As such, Pie Face can be a very social and talkative way to unwind after a long day or week of work. Alternatively, the bud’s sense of focus can enhance solo efforts at work-based productivity, whether the work in question is analytical and task-based or more freewheeling and creative.
As the high wears on, Pie Face’s indica side kicks in, melting across the smoker’s body like a pie to the face. Although not overpowering or couchlocking, this physical relaxation is enough to mellow out any previously agitated mindset and put consumers at peace with their surroundings. The eventual combination of mental and physical effects makes the strain a good way to tackle activities that involve both mind and body, including exercise, video games, and even sex. Due to its taper from energetic mental stimulation down into physical relaxation, Pie Face is best consumed during the late afternoon and early evening.
Pie Face’s effects can also have applications for medical cannabis patients. Its mood-elevating effects can temporarily improve the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. Its mental lucidity can be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders. Physiologically speaking, Pie Face’s physical effects can soothe deep-seated aches and pains, whether they’re temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like lupus and fibromyalgia. Pie Face can also stimulate the appetite, and may make smokers seek out a savory treat from the Australian meat pie company of the same name. Because its onset is associated with strong, recursive thinking, Pie Face is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Fortunately for home growers, Archive Seeds have made seeds of Pie Face available for sale online.
