Agent Cooper loves cherry pie. If you know Twin Peaks, I don’t need to explain this to you. If you don’t (go watch it!), all you need to know that Agent Cooper is a quirky FBI agent with a love for cherry pie and black coffee.
Learning a definition for Cherry Pie that didn’t include a popular dessert in the U.S., made me chuckle. I understand now why Agent Copper loved his cherry pie. Jokes aside, the Cherry Pie strain may be fantastic marijuana for you to try if you are dealing with stress, anxiety, depression or insomnia.
What Is the Cherry Pie Strain?
Cherry Pie strain is also known as Cherry Kush. It is a hybrid marijuana strain that is fantastic for managing stress and related disorders and help people to feel relaxed and happy. Cherry Pie is a sweet flower that comes in berry, earthy, and sweet flavors. It is popular at social gatherings, especially at laid-back events when lifted spirits and deeply relaxed vibes are welcome. It has moderate THC levels.
Cherry pie can help you feel less pain, happy, creative, euphoric, and sleep. It may help with ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression pain, stress, muscle spasms, and insomnia.
What Is the Cherry Pie Experience?
Cherry Pie promotes an easygoing mood that is great when you want to be relaxed, spend quality time with friends or family, have some quality me-time, or enjoy the sunset.
Unlike other sativa hybrids, the Cherry Pie strain doesn’t lead to high energy or feelings of raciness but provides the opposite through muscle relaxation and calmness. It may encourage concentration, creativity, music, and arts. It may increase your appetite, but likely bring a positive vibe and fun times.
About the Cherry Pie Strain
Cherry Pie is the cross between two popular strains: Durban Poison and Granddaddy Purple. Granddaddy Purple is an indica strain while Durban poison is a South African sativa filled with tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), a lesser known cannabinoid. Indica strains are fantastic for those looking to treat symptoms such as chronic pain, muscle spasms, anxiety, sleep deprivation, nausea, or low appetite.
Sativa strains may boost serotonin and benefit anxiety, mood, learning, and pain. A hybrid strain can provide the best of both worlds and combine the benefits of the two.
As a result of the hybridization, the Cherry Pie strain has 14 to 24% THC. A higher THC concentration may increase sleepiness, however, this also helps with a calm attitude. Cherry Pie has a special aroma and a smooth smoke that’s easy to inhale and exhale. However, it is a potent strain, so tread lightly. (1)
Medical Benefits of the Cherry Pie Strain
According to a large review by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine marijuana may be effective for easing chronic pain. The same review suggests that it may also be helpful with pain symptoms associated with cancer. Another review found that marijuana may be effective for mental health conditions, such as PTSD, depression, and ADHD.
While there is no specific scientific research on this strain, it seems that Cherry Pie allows a long, slow, functional sedation. It may be used for:
- Muscle spasms
- Bipolar disorder
- Aches and pains
Is the Cherry Pie Strain Legal?
Remember, marijuana is not legal in all states. Check with your state laws if you are considering using Cherry Pie. Always talk to your doctor before trying Cherry Pie for any ailment or health condition.
