About Wedding Cake
History & Genetics
Wedding Cake is a sweet strain, of course, but it packs a spicy aftermath (just like marriage). It’s great for calming down and going out, even for doing nothing – the ideal people watcher’s strain. It was bred by an unknown creator from prestigious parents – Cherry Pie and GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) – and delivers a high-20s THC count that should keep even the most jaded users interested.
Wedding Cake is sometimes called Pink Cookies. We mentioned its most commonly accepted lineage, though some seed banks suggest that it’s actually a Triangle Mints phenotype. We believe it’s more likely to be the Cherry Pie + GSC genetics because of how having parents that are both landrace sativa strains like Durban Poison have influenced the results. Wedding Cake leans towards indica (60/40) and like GSC has leaves that are both dark and light green, with dense buds, and numerous sugary crystals.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
The strain’s terpenes favor humulene at the top and then in less prestigious amounts, limonene and terpinolene. Humulene is the woody, spicy terpene that gives a lot of strains the unique taste of earth and pepper. You may recognize it as the taste of hops, which also contains humulene.
Wedding Cake doesn’t have the most stimulating aroma, surprisingly. It’s not a blast of vanilla sweetness like you’d expect but a much more low-key mix of earth and flower scents, with sweet tones underneath. The flavor is doughy and sour, almost like sourdough bread.
The strain works wonders for users who want to control their nerves or anxiety. Neuromuscular regulation is also a term that gets tossed around, meaning that Wedding Cake can help people deal with depression and reduce symptoms related to muscular sclerosis and fibromyalgia.
Due to these medicinal advantages, Wedding Cake is easily recommendable for those that can handle the THC content. It doesn’t have as strong or memorable a flavor as new users might expect, but its resistance in the ground and in your mouth has made it a favorite among growers and users alike.
We mentioned the landrace heritage being significant. Growers will be happy to know that its strong genetic past makes Wedding Cake immune to most anything that could hit your garden, from temperature changes to mold to diseases to pests. The strain tends to grow short so it doesn’t need staking – you’ll be fine so long as you keep the growing conditions consistent. When grown inside, the strain flowers in 7 – 9 weeks; outside, it flowers in late September or early October. The main thing we recommend to make it easier is to use reflective lining in a growing tent, which will evenly distribute light and help this strain along.
I purchased 1/2 oz from Housing Works in NY C and the weed was terrible. No high, no taste. Then my neighbor grew wedding cake from seed and the was super potent and pretty much lived up to it's reputation.
The high on this strain kicks in a few minutes after hitting. Like the description says, it has no distinct flavor and the name could be misleading. For my experience, it starts off with a nice calm and euphoric head high then within the next 20 minutes moves towards more of a bodily feeling. I had fingers feeling numb or tickly and overall relaxed body. If you freak out from these reactions, all of it stops after an hour or so don't scare yourself and have a bad experience from this strain. I personally like more head highs than body high hence my score but this strain is definitely a good one. Just not my cup of tea.
Such a happy high, in about a 4 gram a day smoker and it worked every time, a few times with the uncontrolled giggles of early smoking days. 36% from Crop Valley in Oregon
Great relaxing indica. Euphoria pain relief. I have used both the flower and shine carts
Wedding Cake will send you into another dimension. This strain is almost too good. Euphoria is off the chart!
