Ember Valley Redding Pie Review

Ember Valley's Redding Pie is an indica-dominant hybrid with a complex gassy grape aroma, dense large buds and over 26% THC.

Ember Valley Redding Pie is an indica-dominant hybrid first introduced by Cannarado Genetics, who managed to successfully combine the best features of both parents, Grape Pie and Wedding Cake.

This is one of those fragrant dessert-flavored strains that has become well-loved for its strong sedative effects as well as its high stress-relieving properties. Produced in the heart of Shasta County, this batch was grown with love by the skillful cultivators at Ember Valley, a California cannabis company that’s been catching fire this year thanks to their relentless dedication to producing high-quality craft cannabis using some of the best genetics in the game. I couldn’t wait to throw a spark at this flower and see what would rise from the ashes.

Let’s see how it compares to other indica flowers like Deli’s GMO Garlic Cookies.

Opening this little glass jar instantly released a loud profile that was bright, sweet, slightly floral with abundant fruity tones that all blended together in beautiful harmony. It started with a base of mostly grapes and gas that eventually gave way to varying levels of citrus, pine, wood, hints of leathery musk, and a healthy splash of ammonia dousing it all in a chemical bite. The cannabis scent from this cultivar was bold and rather complex, but also friendly and inviting as you’d expect a nice slice of Redding Pie to be.


In terms of appearance, the buds looked great with their coloring they resembled large, chunky boulders, almost entirely covered on the surface by glistening golden trichomes and bright flame-colored hairs. Underneath was vivid patches of lime green alternated with swaths of deep purple sugar leaves curling around the edges of the crags. When broken open, the nugs were still shockingly fluffy and fresh on the inside, even after months in a jar, confirming just how well this batch was cured and preserved during production.


The flavor lined up well with the aroma and was draped in a dominant amount of floral grapes backed by an earthy musk with subtle wood notes, as well as hints of pine, pepper, and a citrus touch. It tasted equally as bright as the scent, but with the ammonia edge being slightly less noticeable, replaced instead by more of a gassy kick on exhale. The terpenes were not disclosed (no breakdown or ratio) but they seem quite complex and based on the flavor alone, I would like to order a second helping please.


My jar was part of batch EV0352 with a package date of November 9, 2021. Listed with 26.36% THC content and a price tag of $35 for 3.5 grams, I think saying this pie was a delicious experience would be a big understatement as it got me thoroughly baked. If you’re looking for an indica strain then this one might be worth checking out because the high was extremely mellow and quickly resulted in my body being somewhat numb with a mild buzzing sensation throughout. It left me feeling entirely relaxed and at ease while also taking my mind on a bit of a wandering journey through the valley in search of more embers, mostly because I lost my lighter somewhere along the way.

As a Northern California native and longtime consumer of cannabis in many forms I've spent endless hours exploring the various brands and products this region has to offer, so I'm here to help guide you through the ever-evolving landscape of the West Coast weed world. From sunny South Cali to the Bay Area breeze and Sacramento trees, all the way up to the emerald glory of Mendocino and legendary Humboldt County, I'll be discovering the best (and maybe not-so-best) buds, concentrates, and extracts being harvested in the Golden State these days. Why? So you don't have to take chances when you're headed out to pick up a fresh drop, of course. Because that's what we do here. It's pretty heroic.

Have your say!
