American Pie responds well to Low-Stress Training making it an ideal plant for SCRoG systems. Indoors it is a medium-tall plant at 60 - 160 cm. It produces very good yields of 550 gr/m2 in a flowering time of between 65 - 70 days. Outdoor growers will see plants max-out at around 300 cm. with productive crops of 300 - 1000 gr/plant ready to harvest in the middle of October in northern latitudes. It is unlikely to perform to its potential in northern Europe and other high latitude regions preferring a Mediterranean-type climate. As befits such a sativa-dominant plant its buds develop into long, thin clusters covered in sparkling resin crystals.
American Pie is a sweet-tasting marijuana strain with a complex aroma that is quite alluring. THC production is measured at 20% with 0.6% CBD. The effect is both psychedelic and relaxing at the same time - quite a trick to pull off as it lacks the edginess of many sativa strains.
