Key Lime Pie acts quickly, providing a deep and heavy relaxation that starts from the face and soon spreads throughout the body, easing tension.

The mental stimulation provided is more dreamy than cerebral. This is not a flower you smoke to get a productive boost – instead, you can use it to come up with unique ideas or do some out-of-the-box thinking that can help you streamline your work better.

There is a noticeable body high, making it a perfect strain for a lazy indoor day or a relaxing evening after a long day of work. You may also use it after an intense physical workout to rest your body better. Whatever the case, make sure you do not have anything to do but chill and relax before smoking this bud.


Key Lime Pie is popular among medical cannabis users for its potential to alleviate pain, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and PTSD symptoms. Its balanced effects offer relief while still allowing for mental clarity.

Side effects

Common side effects include dry eyes and dry mouth. In higher doses or among novice users, Key Lime Pie may cause some paranoia, anxiety, or a sense of being spaced out and couchlocked.

Taste & Smell


The strain offers a tangy lime and creamy sweetness flavour with subtle herbal notes – similar to lime candy with earthy undertones. Its aroma is zesty and citrusy, with an earthy backdrop and a hint of chocolate.

Key Lime Pie buds are a visual treat with a deep green colour and patches of purple and orange pistils scattered throughout. The buds are dense, clumpy, and blanketed with a layer of white trichomes, displaying the tight, dense structure characteristic of Indica varieties.



Key Lime Pie is a distinct phenotype of the famous GSC strain, with a unique genetic lineage involving a blend of Indica, hybrid, and Sativa strains. Its roots can be traced to famous cannabis cultivars like Granddaddy Purple, OG Kush, and Sour Diesel, among others.

Growing conditions

Key Lime Pie can be grown both indoors and outdoors, although outdoor cultivation requires warm and humid conditions. It flowers within 9-10 weeks when grown indoors. Known for its bushy indica shape with strong lateral branching, its cultivation from clippings requires a moderate level of growing experience. As a result, newcomers may find this a rather challenging flower to grow.
