Key Lime Pie Strain

Key lime pie strain is a sweet, citrus strain that delivers a relaxing high with an earthy, herbal aftertaste. This strain is said to be a phenotype of Girl Scout Cookies, but its precise genetics are a little vague. Some speculate that it’s a hybrid of OG Kush, Durban Poison, and Cherry Pie, with roots in Afghani, Nepalese, and Thai landrace varieties.

In small doses, Key Lime Pie delivers a euphoric mental boost that inspires creativity. But in large enough doses, this indica can leave users feeling spacey and couch-locked. It’s best enjoyed during the late afternoon to early evening, when its deeply calming effects will soothe aches and pains.

The terpene profile of this strain is rich in both Limonene and Humulene, two chemical compounds that are known to reduce anxiety and stress levels. Limonene gives this strain its citrusy essence, and Humulene adds notes of mint to the flavor.

Growing Key Lime Pie can be challenging for new growers, but experienced gardeners should have no trouble getting this strain to thrive. It’s important to use clones rather than seeds, and to practice “topping” during the vegetative phase by trimming light-blocking fan leaves that can inhibit flowering. Indoor growers should use either soil or hydroponics and will need to keep the temperature consistent, as this strain tends to respond better to cool temperatures. Once the flowers start to form, they should be ready for harvest in about 9-10 weeks.
