The American Pie strain is a mostly Sativa hybrid, which is due to its origin in the Barcelona-based Pyramid Seeds as a cross between White Widow and South African Sativa Power Plant. Growers love American Pie seeds feminized because the plant gives a high yield.

The American Pie weed strain represents the mix of interacting terpenes:

  • Myrcene
  • Humulene

Appearance, Taste, and Aroma

The buds of this marijuana are quite large and conical in shape, tapering from the base to the pointed limb. The internal structure is mixed with hardcore, which is more typical for Indica, and at the same time with fluffy, Sativa-like leaves. The leaves have a bright light green hue. The buds are covered with dirty orange hairs and white crystalline trichomes, which add shine.

In its raw form, American Pie smells like sweet fruit, but gradually you begin to feel a heavy musky hue, reminiscent of moist soil. When crushed, a sharp smell is released, and when burned, the smell can even become sharp and pungent. On the exhale, the smoke leaves a viscous earthy aroma with pine admixtures. At the same time, in your mouth, you will taste citrus, unknown spices, and sweet tropical fruits such as mango.

American Pie Strain Effects

The sensation of this weed that you feel immediately can make you scattered and a little slapped. Stoners experience some strange tics, redness of the cheeks, and even salivation. But these effects, which may not even seem very pleasant to some, do not last long. But instead, there is a change in thinking, distortion of reality, the intensity of perception, and so on.

Smokers may find that their thoughts are held back by an unrestrained flow of free associations. The psychedelic effects of this strain are extremely pronounced – some may even change their sense of time. However, smokers experience pleasure and a certain influx of energy, which helps to engage in different activities.

Common Usage

The American Pie strain has a wide range of benefits for patients who use medical cannabis. For example, it is used by patients with attention deficit disorder – because strain promotes mental stimulation. It can also be used to alleviate the symptoms of depressive conditions, mild and moderate stress, and fatigue.

Growing Tips

The success of growing strain in the open air depends on the climate – the most effective for the harvest is semi-moist, Mediterranean. The seeds can grow up to 60 inches in height and periodically require control by pruning at home. American Pie strain blooms for 9-10 weeks and is ready for harvest in about 67 days. Indoors, the yield reaches 400 g/m², outdoors – 550 g/plant.

My pick is the berry flavor of American Pie. I have tried the weed purely for its taste, but I did not expect it to be as effective against my stress and anxiety. My speech has become a little slurred, but this is nothing compared to the calming effect of
