The popular Wedding Cake strain is a delicious plant, which is favoured for its heavy yields of potent crops that deliver a fabulous sweet and fruity flavor and aroma.
Wedding Cake is an indica-leaning hybrid (60% indica, 40% sativa) that is the result of crossing two of the most popular cannabis strains on the market: Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) and Cherry Pie. The strong THC content has been recorded as high as around 26%, with less than 1% CBD. It also has a strong terpene profile, including beta caryophyllene, beta myrcene, and alpha humulene, which offers up some quality characteristics.
Wedding Cake requires a bit more effort than most strains for achieving optimal results, with indoor grows requiring an effective ventilation system and use of SoG methods to maximise use of space. These plants can be susceptible to root and bud rot if not adequately cared for, regular pruning is essential to prevent moisture from damaging the crops. Making a little bit of an extra effort can result in generous yields of up to 500-650g/m2 indoors, or 600-650g/plant outdoors. Indoors, the flowering time is between 7-9 weeks, while outdoor harvest time is usually around late-September to early-October.
Wedding Cake has a delicious aroma that includes dominant notes of vanilla and cherries, with peppery, earthy undertones that nicely balance out the sweetness. The subtle peppery, spicy notes hit the palette first, followed by the earthier flavors, making for a unique smoking experience.
Perhaps not ideal for a beginner smoker, the effects of Wedding Cake are potent, at first coming on pretty heady with a vibrant sense of euphoria. This slowly settles into a positive, clear high that has a creative, relaxing edge. It is also a great option for helping to tackle a range of medical conditions, including depression, anxiety, insomnia, and pain relief.
