Unfortunately, the Wedding Cake strain doesn’t really taste like a wedding cake, but rather earthy and sour. Only towards the end do you get a slight hint of sugary sweetness. But despite its deceiving name, the Wedding Cake strain is super potent, with THC levels around 27%.
Wedding Cake weed is an indica-dominant hybrid that is a cross of Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies (GSC). However, a few well-known and respected budsmen believe it is actually a cross of Animal Mints and Triangle Kush. The strain was bred in Southern California initially. Later, a breeder called Kind Love helped bring it to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
The extremely high THC levels can act as a mood elevator and a strong painkiller.
THC Content – Highest Test
Users of Wedding Cake know it is a heavy hitter. Lab results have revealed versions of this strain with a THC content of 27%! We have written before about how a strain’s THC content doesn’t necessarily provide the high you expect. However, Wedding Cake is every bit as potent as its lab report suggests; arguably more so! We DO NOT recommend this strain if you are a weed-smoking novice. It can send you into dreamland before you know what is happening!
CBD Content – Highest Test
Wedding Cake seldom has more than 0.23% CBD and usually has approximately 0.1%. As a result, it commonly has a THC: CBD ratio of around 250:1. However, it also has high levels of the terpene, beta-caryophyllene, which creates a similar response to high-CBD strains like Harlequin. As the terpene hits the same CB2 receptors, Wedding Cake is an excellent medicinal strain.
Appearance of Wedding Cake
Trichomes cover the tops and sides of the calyxes. The shades of pinkish-red and grape ensure this weed has a sugar cookie aesthetic. The nugs are dense and shaped like teardrops. Some people call Wedding Cake the ‘Pink Cookie’ because of its coloring.
Aroma of Wedding Cake
Once you get past the earthy and doughy scent, you will be rewarded with an alluring, sweet aroma. This strain’s notes proved that its backcrossed genetics mixed well and kept the all-important tart and sugary qualities of its lineage.
Medical Benefits of Wedding Cake
It works as a calming agent and appetite stimulator, and is quite helpful for patients who experience regular depression-associated syndromes, fibromyalgia, MS and other such related symptoms. It may act as a sedative for patients, but does help in calming down nerves or controlling anxiety stimulating symptoms. Although it might not completely hamper your focus and energy levels, it will cause the usual drying out of eyes and mouth. This particular medical marijuana is grown indoors. It is observed to contain a THC level of 25%. In terms of physical features, it is shaped like pine trees and looks dense in its structural form. It is quite frosty looking and has dark green leaves. This particular medical marijuana is also thickly dressed up with orange hair all over it. It is most generally known for its sugary taste, as well as high potency value.
Taste of Wedding Cake
It gives an exceptionally sweet aromatic essence and a fruity flavour. The taste is a perfect combination of sweetness of cookies and fruitiness of a cherry pie. Due to the aroma, it’s surprising to find that the soil and sour flavors take over your taste buds. Fortunately, the sugary notes come through after a little while. We recommend using a vaporizer at a low-temperature setting if you want to get the best flavor.
Side Effects of the Wedding Cake Strain
As is the case with most high-THC strains, there are some potential adverse side effects. If you use too much, issues such as cottonmouth or red eyes can occur. In rare cases, it can cause panic attacks or anxiety in people predisposed to these conditions.
Final Thoughts on the Wedding Cake Strain
Wedding Cake is an intense strain that can help to temporarily alleviate pain, anxiety, and depression. It has an extremely high THC level, and it ‘feels’ like you have just dabbed a concentrate! Although it is a relaxing smoke, it is not for the beginner or individuals with a low weed tolerance.
