Lemon Pie Thai
(Dr Gruber’s Personal Favorite-Joints)
Promix Potting Soil-(Drain to Waste)
Flower Time: 60 -70 days
Dr Gruber's personal preference- 65 days
Another easy grow.
Although it seemed I had a nutrient imbalance at the end of the vegetative period going into flower, the problem was fixed with minimal fuss. After a quick flush and an increase in the frequency of feeding, all was well.
It's a Sativa with the growth characteristics of an Indica, which is to say; a short stocky plant that has a good yield and is easy to manage. For an 85% Sativa dominant plant , the buds are much more dense then expected when compared to other plants with that much sativa influence. To my eye, the colas looked similar to Trainwreck colas, and I would guess that is the Thai influence showing up in both of them.
During Flower- I could smell hints of lemon and caramel just as listed in the description.
During Harvest- The fresh buds left a unexpected odor on my hands that was different then other plants. I had a hard time nailing it down but I did eventually figure it out. Dough. Yes, dough, like for a pie crust, or cookies. I'm guessing (again) that is one of the reasons Doc named it as he did. Or, i was just too high while harvesting and imagined the whole thing.
After Harvest- The lemon is gone but is replaced by a sweet tropical fruit smell and the caramel is replaced with a spicy hash undertone.
Associated smells of bud:
Subtle tropical fruit flavor with notes of spicy hash.
Flavor Intensity-(Sour Diesel or Bubba Kush would be a 9 or 10.)
Harsh/smoothness: (1-10, 1 being extremely harsh and 10 being extremely smooth) --
Cough factor? : Yes/no
This isn't a flavor powerhouse like bubba or sour diesel but it does have a distinct taste that carries through a joint or bowl. Neither of it's flavor components (fruit or hash) are powerful on their own but together they are strong without being overpowering. A very clear, clean, and pleasant flavor.
Euphoric and social without any noticeable paranoia or anxiousness. Most of the positive qualities associated with Sativa's but socially relaxing. Good for conversation and laughs.
Clears stress and depression.
Motivating but does not inspire creativity in and of itself, however, it does bring energy to creative projects.
Potency: (1-10, 1 being extremely weak and 10 being extremely potent)
Duration: (length of buzz, from first hit)
Overall Plant Rating- "YTP" (yield+taste+potency)
YTP Rating = 8.23
Personal/Patient Rating = 9 (extra points for buzz preference)
Slight but noticeable increase in appetite.

Smoking this strain brings positive thoughts and feelings at a time when they are sorely needed.
2016 has been one of my worst years but on a larger level, the whole planet has had a rough time of it. Political upheaval, economic troubles, environmental disaster, multiple deaths of iconic figu res on a list that grows longer every day. With all that has been going on , Dr Gruber prescribes a healthy dose of Lemon Pie Thai for the entire world. I know I will be returning to this when the chips are down and I need a boost. Because this strain just makes me feel good.
And now, to concluded my final journal for this worst of years, I would like to borrow the jingle DanDanger at Skunk Magazine wrote for me…..
"Well if you like to smoke weed
and you want to get high
Just take yourself a puff
of some Lemon Pie Thai"
