Key Lime Pie Strain Genetics
Purple Caper’s unique take on the Key Lime Pie formula blends the original Santa Cruz cultivar with a carefully selected Girl Scout Cookies F1 male. The end result is an extremely resinous clone-only cut with a super sour diesel tang.
Rapid flowering rates make Key Lime Pie marijuana seeds ideal for indoor set-ups and professional cultivation, but resilience and resistances gained from its cannabis cup winning parent also makes it highly suitable as a starting strain. As a phenotype of Girl Scout Cookies, Key Lime Pie lineage can also be traced back to OG Kush and Durban Poison, and these popular strains give this Purple Caper exclusive its particularly heady indica impact.
Key Lime Pie Strain Terpene Profile
As sometimes occurs in the world of cannabis cultivation, Key Lime Pie flavour and aroma can differ slightly depending on the individual seed. Sour fruity flavours are all but guaranteed, but also a minty, diesel-heavy taste that’s a little closer to GSC. Both profiles are equally delicious and are backed up by earthy undertones and sweet chocolatey accents.
As with GSC, Key Lime Pie dominant terpenes are caryophyllene and myrcene, but these are far from the only chemical compounds contributing to its flavour profile. Humulene, limonene, and ocimene – known for its minty aesthetic – also have their part to play.

Marijuana plants contain over 100 cannabinoids, each with their own unique properties, and their tremendous medical potential is only just beginning to be uncovered.
Key Lime Pie medical benefits, like its psychoactive effects, revolve around the body. Caryophyllene has an analgesic influence, reducing aches and pains, while myrcene is a powerful sedative and can be used to treat insomnia. These qualities are further enhanced by THC, and as such, this strain is a great alternative option for when recovering from physical injury.

GSC phenotypes are generally simple to cultivate, and these cannabis seeds are no exception. While outdoor cultivation is undoubtedly possible, growing Key Lime Pie seeds indoors is recommended to make the best use of its indica characteristics and rapid growth. With a proper hydroponic setup, growers can expect super high yields of extra resinous bud, allowing concentrate creators to take full advantage.
As mentioned, Key Lime Pie flowering period is rapid, and results can be seen within 7-8 weeks from germination.
