What Exactly is the Peanut Butter Pie Cannabis Strain?

The Peanut Butter Pie strain is what can be called a hybrid of a hybrid. This strain is enjoying increasing popularity mainly because of the cocktail of flavors that it packs.

It is a cross between the Lava Cake and Do-Si-Dos strains. Combining the best features of these two strains, it offers a value that many users have come to swear by.

To give you a better understanding of this Peanut Butter Pie strain, let’s take a quick look at its parent strains – the Lava Cake and Do-Si-Dos.

Lava Cake Strain

The Lava Cake Strain is popular for its delicious flavoring. It’s not named the lava cake for fun. It does indeed remind one of the gooey goodness of chocolate.

With a THC level of between 15% and 18%, its strongest feature is its chocolaty taste. It is therefore best for those who want a mild effect but with loads of flavor.

This is a hybrid of two other strains – the Thin Mint GSC and the Grape Pie

Do-Si-Dos Strain

The Do-Si-Dos is a hard-hitting hybrid of the Girl Scout Cookies and Face Off OG strains. With a 30% THC-level, its potency and ability to really hit the spot hard, is not in question at all.

These two parent strains come together to yield this new strain. As you would expect, the Peanut Butter Pie strain gets its hard hitting THC level from the Do-Si-Dos strain and its sweet, delicious flavor from the lava cake strain. It’s little wonder that users are really loving this combo as it gives them the best of two worlds.

Using the Peanut Butter Pie Cannabis Strain

One of the major properties of the Peanut Butter Pie variety of cannabis is its high THC levels. According to available documentation, it has a 32% THCa content. Note that we have the THC and the THCa. There are a few differences between the two which we will not be deliberating on in this article. You can however learn more about the differences here.

Now let’s looking at how you can use the Peanut Butter Pie variety of cannabis:


This is a pretty obvious way of using any type of cannabis or hemp. For this particular variety, smoking it allows you to experience its full potency. The reason for this is that THCa does not have as high a hallucinogenic effect as THC. Basically THCa is an unprocessed form of THC with heat being the factor required to effect its processing to THC.

The amount of heat introduced will determine how much THC will be made available. This means that since smoking requires not just heat, but fire, you can be sure of having an almost 100% conversion for a full release of its potent power.

Medical Applications

While most people who are cannabis users opt for smoking, that is not all that you can use this or any other variety for. Some medical experts are suggesting that THCa possesses some medical value which can be derived if it is not converted to THC.

To ensure that THCa is not converted to THC, heat must not be introduced to the mix. This then leaves people with a few options which include chewing the raw flowers, eating them along with the vegetables or blending them into their smoothies.

Though there’s not much research on this subject as at yet, preliminary findings suggest that THCa may be helpful for fighting nausea and reducing inflammation. We must also state clearly here that THCa does have some hallucinogenic effect. It is just not as much as that of THC. This means that it is still possible to feel “something” even when you take the raw flower.

Choosing a Supplying

The supplier you purchase from will often be the difference between buying good quality products and knock offs. It is important that you have trustworthy suppliers from whom you get your cannabis.

With many sellers coming online to offer various strains and varieties, and given how largely unregulated this market is, you are sure to have a lot of low quality products out there.
