Combining a delicious flavor with a stimulating high, Berry Pie is a dessert strain that’s a real treat even though it isn’t particularly well-known.

The cerebral effects of Berry Pie are delightful. There’s a euphoria that pretty much eliminates stress while providing a long-lasting boost of mental energy and focus. The body stone is relaxing but not locking, making this strain a good daytime choice.

The taste is even better, with a mouth-watering flavor of sweet blueberry mixed with vanilla, nuts, and a little bit of earth to keep you grounded. The aroma is similarly enticing.

Berry Pie is potent, with an average THC content of 22%. The bud is attractive, too, with layers of frosty trichomes on colas that are varying shades of green, wrapped in bright orange pistils.

There’s a lot to like.


Berry Pie delivers a mental high that doesn’t quit.

The cerebral effects begin quickly with a burst of euphoria that replaces mental baggage with a sense of happiness. It’s focused happiness, however, along with increased energy that makes it easy to tackle whatever you have to get done, whether it’s work or play. There’s some mental relaxation in the mix as well, which stays with you until the high wears off.

The physical side of Berry Pie is equally relaxing. Aching muscles, joints, and limbs will all be eased, allowing you to move around easily as you take advantage of the cerebral energy and happiness. Couch lock and sedation are extremely unlikely when using this strain.

Berry Pie is the type of strain most people should choose as daytime bud. It will enhance rather than hinder their mood and effectiveness, whether they’re trying to make it through the workday or enjoy some well-deserved off time. It’s good weed for enjoying nature, seeing a movie, or socializing with friends or family (as long as your family is cool with your smoking).

Bottom Line: Berry Pie delivers the type of high that people expect when they hear the description “sativa”: uplifting, energizing, and relaxing, without a body buzz that holds them back.

Positive Effects:

  • Energy: 2/5
  • Creative: 1/5
  • Pain: 5/5
  • Stress: 4/5
  • Sleep: 4/5
  • Mood: 5/5

Side Effects

The high THC content of Berry Pie may be problematic for newer users, those with pre-existing anxiety issues, or those who go over their limit and smoke too much. Dizziness, anxiety, and paranoia aren’t a given for those folks, but they’re certainly possible, and anxiety patients may feel their problems worsen. It’s best for those folks to take things slowly when trying this strain.

All other users won’t experience major negative effects except for the usual dry eyes and dry throat, along with mild dehydration (water is all that’s needed to take care of that) and the munchies.

Negative Effects:

  • Paranoid: 2/5
  • Dry Mouth: 4/5
  • Dry Eyes: 4/5
  • Lethargy: 2/5
  • Cough: 3/5

Medical Conditions

MMJ users love the uplifting, happy cerebral effects of Berry Pie. They say the weed is particularly good at easing psychological conditions like depression, anxiety, and stress, although, as we’ve mentioned, some anxiety sufferers may find that this strain is the wrong choice for them.

The head high, combined with the mild physical relaxation, seems to help some patients dealing with physical issues. Users say that headaches and cramps are likely to go away after a few tokes of Berry Pie, and chronic pain sufferers report that the strain is often able to ease their muscle and joint problems for a while. Serious pain, however, may not respond to Berry Pie.

Flavor and Aroma

Some people say this strain smells more like blueberry waffles than blueberry pie. Either way, the blueberry scent, and taste are amazing.

Both the aroma and flavor are dominated by the smell of sweet and tart fresh blueberries, mixed with the scents of fresh fruit, pie dough (contributed by the weed’s GSC genetics), nuts, and a little bit of earthiness and nuttiness. The flavor of the creamy smoke is exactly what you’d expect: just like delicious blueberry pie (or waffles) with vanilla showing up in the aftertaste.

Flavor and Aroma Ratings:

  • Earthy: 2/5
  • Citrus: 2/5
  • Fruity: 5/5
  • Spice: 2/5
  • Wood: 1/5

Cannabinoids and Terpenes

Don’t let the delicious scent and flavor fool you into thinking that this bud is benign. It packs a punch. The average THC content of Berry Pie is 22%, and it’s not uncommon to find samples in dispensaries that contain as much as 25%. The CBD content is unusually high for a strain with so much THC, between 1% and 2%. There are good amounts of CBG and CBC as well.

The dominant terpenes in Berry Pie are carene, limonene, caryophyllene, and linalool, but there are half-a-dozen other terps in the flower, including humulene, terpinolene, and myrcene.


The Cookies Fam and Seed Junky Genetics teamed up to create Berry Pie. They crossed the legendary strains Girl Scout Cookies and Blueberry and came up with a winner that deserves get more attention than it receives.

Blueberry, of course, is largely responsible for the aroma and flavor of Berry Pie. It also contributes much to the child strain’s euphoria and relaxation. GSC not only adds the cookie dough flavor to Berry Pie but provides sativa genetics and impressive potency.

Where to Buy Berry Pie Seeds

This strain’s seeds aren’t easy to find, so you may have to do some searching to find an online source. Two to check out are Cannabis Seeds USA, which sells both feminized and regular versions of Berry Pie seeds, and Copycat Genetix, which offers feminized seeds.

Similar Strains

Parent strain Blueberry should be first on your list because of its flavor, although it does deliver a stronger body high. Others to consider include Ice Cream, Dolce Vita, and Cherry Kush.

Berry Pie Strain Review: FAQ

Q: I’ve seen Blueberry Pie weed for sale. Is that the same as Berry Pie?
A: Not quite. Blueberry Pie is a cross of GSC with Blue Dream instead of Blueberry. The taste is similar to that of Berry Pie, but Blueberry Pie is indica-dominant, and its body stone is stronger and more relaxing.

Q: Is Blueberry Pie a Kush?
A: Nope, that’s also a different strain, Blueberry Kush. It’s indica-dominant cannabis that can be sedating for many users, and its blueberry flavor contains more of the earth and wood you’d expect in a Kush strain.
