Trivia: A.K.A. Cherry Kush
Cherry Pie is a very well-balanced hybrid, making it a universal treat. On the one hand, being an indica-dominant strain after all, its most pronounced effect is the sense of physical and mental relaxation it induces. However, the state, especially on the mental side, is more akin to an overall feeling of positivity that slowly takes over and melts your worries away rather than a knockout punch that sends you straight into a dimension where you’re too comatose to care about anything. Cherrie Pie is not a particularly strong strain overall, which is another reason why its applications are so versatile.
Another enticing feature of Cherry Pie is the progression of its high, which slowly evolves into the strain’s sativa side rather than simply taper off. The mind and senses become heightened to environmental stimuli, so video games, films, or playing with your own imagination, become infinitely fun and engrossing. Some people like to exercise during that second phase as well.
Cherry Pie’s medicinal benefits lie mostly on the psychological side, as the sense of relaxation and positivity lend themselves perfectly to people who battle anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other similar conditions. Nevertheless, the bodily high, especially during the initial stage of the high, can go a long way toward alleviating pain.
