Georgia Pie is a slightly indica-dominant (60/40) powerhouse. With THC content that can easily hit the mid-20% range, it’s the child of two highly-regarded strains (Kush Mints and Gelatti) that give it potency and flavor that keep users coming back for more.
The Georgia Pie high is an intense one, hitting both the brain and body hard with effects that can be energizing and uplifting at times, relaxing and even sedating at others. Many find the strain provides them with aphrodisiac effects. The sensory experience is just as pleasurable, with the scent and taste of peaches and pastry dough mingling with that of berries, herbs, and earthiness.
The nugs are as impressive as the effects and flavor: a mix of orange, green, and purple with a thick coating of frosty trichomes.
Effects and Side Effects
Georgia Pie announces its arrival with a series of tingles, starting in the head and then extending throughout the body. That’s followed by an uplifting surge of cerebral euphoria, wiping out anxiety and stress in a flash and often delivering a temporary surge of energy.
That combination of relaxation and energy is emblematic of this strain’s balanced effects. Many users also find the head high to be a creative and focused one that’s great for tackling projects or hobbies or simply appreciating the nuances and intricacies of music or a good novel.
Meanwhile, the warm, relaxing feelings produced by Georgia Pie are spreading through the body. Stressed muscles loosen, and while the body stone isn’t overpowering, hitting the couch may seem like a much better option than getting chores or projects done. Another option that may seem attractive is sex; the strain’s high is often described as arousing.
The high THC content and strong effects of Georgia Pie may trigger drowsiness or sedation over time, but there’s plenty of time to enjoy the long-lasting buzz before the need for sleep fully hits. Expect to consume a lot of munchies during that time; this strain is known for boosting appetites.
That same THC content may cause issues for some users who are already dealing with clinical anxiety. There’s the possibility that smoking Georgia Pie could make their condition worse or cause more serious issues like paranoia. Inexperienced users might also encounter similar problems. For all others, cottonmouth and dry eyes are the most likely side effects.

Bottom Line: Georgia Pie’s balanced effects can move back and forth between an energetic head high and a calming body buzz, but the overall impact is euphoric, relaxing, and sometimes arousing.
Medical marijuana patients say that Georgia Pie helps them with a number of health conditions.
Some praise the euphoria and stress relief of the strain’s head high for easing the mental issues caused by anxiety, depression, or clinically-diagnosed stress. Pain patients say the deep body relaxation provided by Georgia Pie is a good weapon against everyday aches, muscle tightness, and spasms, as well as chronic pain caused by conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis.
There’s more. People dealing with insomnia find that the eventual sedative effects of the strain help them get to sleep; its tendency to bring on the munchies can also help those with poor appetites, and Georgia Pie has also been reported to help relieve nausea.
Flavor and Aroma
Most people know that Georgia is called the Peachtree State, so the dominant aroma and flavor of Georgia Pie should come as no surprise.
The sweet scent of peaches hits you as soon as you get your first whiff of this weed. It’s mixed with the aroma of sweet, nutty pie dough as well as notes of tart cherries, herbs, and earthiness. This is one of the best-smelling strains you can find.
The flavor follows suit. Peaches, dough, and nuts dominate the taste of the creamy smoke, with hints of cherries, mint, pine, and earth underneath and in the smoke’s aftertaste. Some users say they also detect a little diesel in the mix.

Cannabinoids and Terpenes
Georgia Pie is a very potent strain, with an average THC content coming in at 22%. That means you might find this weed with less THC, but it’s equally possible to find it with much more of the cannabinoid. In fact, many samples of the strain have been tested to have a THC level as high as 27%.
This is also one of the rare high-THC strains that often has high CBD content, sometimes as much as 3% — which may not sound that high when stacked up against THC, but it’s an impressive level and may explain some of this strain’s medical benefits.
The terpene roster for Georgia Pie is large, varied, and balanced. It’s topped by caryophyllene, limonene, and carene, with nearly equal amounts of pinene, humulene, phellandrene, linalool, and ocimene.
Georgia Pie is a relatively new strain, created by the well-known breeder Seed Junky Genetics in Colorado by crossing Gelatti with Kush Mints. Not surprisingly, the mix of genetics from those two delicious and potent strains turned into another winner.
Gelatti contributes sweetness and a definite Cookies influence to Georgia Pie’s traits, while Kush Mints balances that out with earthiness and mint influences — and since both parents’ average THC content is well over 20%, it’s no surprise that Georgia Pie is potent as well.
Where to Buy Georgia Pie Seeds
Very few of the biggest name seed banks have Georgia Pie seeds available for sale. Vendors like Cannabis Seeds USA and Premium Cultivars offer standard and/or feminized Georgia Pie seeds, but there’s no way to know how close to the original Seed Junk Genetics plants you’ll get when you plant them.
Outfits like Homegrown Nursery and King King Clones claim to sell Georgia Pie clones – at sky-high prices – so buyer beware.
Some of the alternatives you might consider if you can’t find Georgia Pie: Cookies and Cream, Mandarin Cookies, Magic Melon, and Rocket Fuel.
