Wedding Cake is an award-winning cannabis strain that has exploded in popularity over the last few years. Created by Seed Junky Genetics and also known as “Pink Cookies”, Wedding Cake is a sweet-flavored, hard-hitting, and deliciously unique strain that users can’t get enough of.
Wedding Cake: A Popular Indica Dominant Hybrid
Wedding Cake is an Indica-dominant strain at around 60/40. It’s often assumed to be a cross between Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie, but according to its creators, Seed Junky Genetics, it’s actually a phenotype of Triangle Mints.
Triangle Mints, incidentally, is a cross between Animal Mints and Triangle Kush, the former of which is a cross between Girl Scout Cookies, Animal Cookies, and Blue Power, so there is some strong Cookie heritage there.
Wedding Cake Flavors and Aromas
As the name suggests, Wedding Cake’s flavors are sweet and sumptuous. It’s a cake strain after all, so you can expect strong notes of vanilla and spice along with berries, candied fruits, and cream.
The aroma is sweet and earthy—it’s potent and unmistakable. These sweet, vanilla-laden flavors are the main reason that cake strains are so popular right now and Wedding Cake is a prime example.
Effects of the Wedding Cake Strain
Wedding Cake produces feelings of euphoria and relaxation. It will make you sleepy but it won’t knock you out. There is enough of a spark here to fuel your creativity and it could be perfect for use as an artistic aid later in the evening. Alternatively, roll a joint and enjoy it during a video gaming session or movie marathon with friends.
The combination of the body high and the euphoric head high means that Wedding Cake is a promising strain for the treatment of insomnia, loss of appetite, nausea, and chronic pain.
What Are The Side Effects of Wedding Cake?
Dry mouth is the most common adverse effect of Wedding Cake, but other side effects include dry eyes, anxiety, paranoia, and sleepiness. It all comes down to the dose and the user’s tolerance.
Are There Different Strains of Wedding Cake?
Like all cannabis strains, Wedding Cake comes in many varieties and phenotypes. Growers love this strain and have gotten creative with it, crossing it with a variety of different strains to add unique flavors, effects, and varying cannabinoid profiles.
Some of the other Wedding Cake strains out there include Cornbread Wedding Cake, Wedding Cake F4, Wedding Cake x OG Kush, and Royal Wedding Cake
Cannabinoid Content and Terpene Profile of the Wedding Cake Strain
The THC content of Wedding Cake hovers around 25%, making it one of the strongest Indica-dominant strains on the market (see below for more potent strains). It’s enough to deliver a massive medicinal dose but many users report feeling more euphoric and creative than sedate and couch-locked.
Dominant terpenes include Caryophyllene and Myrcene, providing notes of spice, pepper, fruit, and sweetness.
What is the Strongest Indica Strain in the World?
Wedding Cake, also known as “Pink Cookies”, is a strong, Indica-dominant cannabis strain that has proven to be immensely popular with smokers of all tolerance levels.
But is it the strongest Indica strain? Not quite.
Purple Kush is one of the strongest Indica strains out there and the up to 27% THC makes Wedding Cake’s THC content look pretty modest. Purple Kush can hover around the low 20% though, so you’ll need to find a high-THC phenotype.
Other Indica strains that pack a punch include Ice Wreck, Chocolate OG, and Greasy Monkey.
Growing the Wedding Cake Strain
Wedding Cake’s popularity has led to an explosion in amateur grows. It’s often grown indoors and has a flowering period of between 7 and 9 weeks, with a yield of between 18 and 21 ounces per square meter.
