I grew a couple rounds from seed (Humbolt Seed Co). At first I wasn't super impressed. That was until I upped my nutes in my second grow. They went crazy. This strain definitly likes extra nutes. They were really happy with extra nitrogen during veg. It aslo naturally likes to turn purple and makes for a nice finish product. Great smell and flavor, will definitly grow again.

Information About Aromas and Terpenes

This cannabis hybrid has a deep and memorable aroma; however, it is far from the strain’s name. The smells are flowery and woody on initial inspection, with slight lemon notes as typical for caryophyllene. On a deeper whiff, smokers can detect tobacco and lemon odors. On the exhale, the weed leaves more pleasant flavors reminiscent of limonene, myrcene, and humulene.

Major Benefits and Effects

After people smoke the Vanilla Cream Pie strain, one of the most common effects they experience is sleepiness. Their bodies drop off into a state of total relaxation that can make it difficult to move at times. This effect is widely used to help people combat symptoms caused by:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Hypertension
  • Migraines

The strain is less powerful but still effective in managing epilepsy, muscle spasms, bipolar disorder, and Alzheimer’s disease.

The THC percentage is thought to be a reason for causing side effects in smokers such as:

  • Hunger
  • Drowsiness
  • Hallucination
  • Dry eyes
  • Headaches
  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Panic attacks
  • Concern

These reactions are more likely to occur when smoking large amounts of Vanilla Cream Pie at a time. For consumers who worry about the risk of these reactions, it is best to stick to smaller doses.

Growth Tips

It is not a challenge to cultivate the Vanilla Cream Pie strain, and this fact adds more points to this hybrid. The typical flowering time is 55-63 days, and the harvest is expected in 59 days. For indoor plants that grow up to 30’’-60’’, it amounts to 1-2 oz./ft2, while outdoor yields can be 10-15 ounces per plant. Grown in the open air, they are 60’’-80’’ in stature.
