Parent strain Durban Poison is a pure sativa that originates from the South African port city of Durban. GDP results from a cross between Purple Urkle and Big Bud.
APPEARANCE AND AROMA
The Cherry Pie strain presents itself in the form of small to medium sized nugs. The color is a vibrant, mossy green with a dusting of bright orange pistils. The bugs themselves are densely packed in a form characteristic of indica strains. The trichomes aren’t outwardly visible on this strain and are in fact rather translucent. The bud is relatively easy to break up with the hands but fanatics of collecting kief are recommended to use a grinder with this strain. The smell is exactly as you’d expect: a subtle hint of cherry and mostly just gas. The scent is accepted by rich herbal and sweet cherry notes that are especially pungent. Consumers concerned with discretion should take precaution when consuming this strain.
