Strain of the Week: Grape Pie

Every now and then, I come across a strain that’s perfect for relaxation. It puts my mind at ease and hits me with a euphoria that keeps me laughing along with friends. OutCo recently dropped their signature Grape Pie strain into their dispensary recently, and I discovered the vast medicinal and recreational benefits of this sweet indica.

Grape Pie is an indica-heavy hybrid that leaves you relaxed, giggly, and ready to socialize. It’s the perfect strain for chilling with the homies around a fire pit, reading your favorite book, or binging on some Netflix. Grape Pie is a hybrid made of hybrids (Cherry Pie and Grape Stomper), so if you go back in its lineage, you’ll find a little sativa in there as well. The slight hint of sativa prevents total couch lock and keeps your mind engaged, if somewhat chill.


Every artist has their signature piece. Da Vinci had his Mona Lisa. Michelangelo had his Sistine Chapel. For OutCo, it’s their Grape Pie. I first heard about it last year at Sensi Night San Diego while discussing strains with OutCo’s rep, who introduced me to this particular strain. I waited a year before I was able to try it, and it was worth it.

As soon as I opened the jar, I was hit in the face by its aroma like a brick. Not in a bad way, mind you, but intense. The nugs were sprinkled with green, orange, and purple and stuck to my fingers like glue. I almost wept grinding a nug so pretty, but the result made it all worthwhile. My first hit tasted sweet and fruity just like I expected. The hype is definitely real when it comes to OutCo’s Grape Pie.

OutCo’s Grape Pie is a top-shelf strain you can’t go wrong with. Its label says “Relax, Renew, Unwind,” and you definitely can with this. A little Grape Pie will make a weekend or evening get-together with your buds (pun intended) the most chill time you can have. Yew!

Pro Tip: If you’re going for total couch lock, grind a nug of Grape Pie with a nug of a good body relaxing strain, such as Do-Si-Do. Just make sure you don’t try to do anything complicated (like walking).
