Cherry Limeade is a very flavorful cannabis strain that is created by merging Black Lime Reserve and Cherry Pie. This is a hybrid strain with equal parts of Indica and Sativa. The THC as primary cannabinoid content in the Cherry Limeade strain is quite high though. At an average of 25%, the THC content makes it more suitable for advanced users who are more tolerant to THC. The ideal time to smoke these buds is in the evening because of the relaxing effects it produces.

In Sonoma County, California (Emerald Cannabis Cup, 2015), Cherry Limeade ranked first as the best strain.
