The Genetics Behind Pie Cake

Pie Cake is a carefully crafted indica-leaning hybrid cultivar developed by 808 Genetics, a respected breeder known for creating exotic and high-quality cannabis cultivars.

The cultivar is a cross between Cherry Pie and Wedding Cake, two popular cultivars known for their potency and delicious flavor profiles. Cherry Pie, a cross between Granddaddy Purple and Durban Poison, is famous for its sweet and fruity aroma, while Wedding Cake, a cross between Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie, boasts a rich, tangy flavor with hints of creaminess.

The combination of these two parent cultivars results in the unique and mouthwatering Pie Cake cultivar, which carries the best traits of both Cherry Pie and Wedding Cake.


Flavor Profile & Aroma

Pie Cake’s complex and alluring aroma is one of the first things you’ll notice when encountering this cultivar. The fragrance is a delightful blend of its parent cultivars, featuring a fruity sweetness and those earthy, cherry tones from Cherry Pie and a tangy, creamy undertone from Wedding Cake.

When it comes to flavor, Pie Cake does not disappoint. Upon inhalation, you’ll experience a burst of sweet cherry and berry flavors, followed by a smooth, creamy finish reminiscent of a decadent dessert. The rich, dessert-like flavor profile makes Pie Cake a favorite among cannabis enthusiasts who appreciate cultivars with a unique and full-bodied taste.


Effects & Potential Benefits

As an indica-leaning but well-balanced hybrid, Pie Cake offers the best of both worlds when it comes to its effects. The cultivar provides a powerful cerebral high, characterized by an uplifting and euphoric sensation that can inspire creativity, focus, and a positive mood.

In addition to its cerebral effects, Pie Cake also delivers a soothing body high that can help relieve tension and stress. This combination of mental and physical effects makes Pie Cake a versatile cultivar that can be enjoyed by both recreational users and medical cannabis patients. Some potential therapeutic benefits of Pie Cake include relief from chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and fatigue.



The main terpenes found within the Pie Cake cultivar are Caryophyllene & Limonene. Here’s what we know so far about them:

Caryophyllene is a unique and prominent terpene found in various cannabis cultivars, as well as in other plants such as black pepper, cloves, and rosemary:

  • This terpene is known for its distinct spicy and woody aroma, which adds a layer of complexity to the fragrance of many cannabis strains.
  • What sets Caryophyllene apart from other terpenes is its ability to interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, specifically by binding to the CB2 receptors.
  • This interaction is believed to contribute to the potential anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties of Caryophyllene.
  • As a result, cultivars high in this terpene may be particularly beneficial for individuals seeking relief from chronic pain, inflammation, and certain neurological conditions.

Limonene is another prevalent terpene in the world of cannabis, recognized for its uplifting citrusy aroma reminiscent of lemons and oranges:

  • Limonene is not exclusive to cannabis, as it is also found in the rinds of citrus fruits and various other plants.
  • This terpene has gained popularity for its potential mood-enhancing and stress-relieving effects, making cultivars rich in Limonene sought after by those looking to alleviate anxiety, depression, and stress.
  • Additionally, Limonene is believed to possess antibacterial, antifungal, and antioxidant properties, which may contribute to the overall health benefits of cannabis cultivars containing this terpene.
  • The bright and invigorating scent of Limonene, coupled with its potential therapeutic effects, makes it a highly desirable component in cannabis cultivars for both recreational and medicinal users.
