Wedding Cake

from INSA

"Known for its high THC content, this strain is best reserved for experienced smokers."

Having cake for breakfast on a rainy day is definitely not a bad thing – especially when it’s Wedding Cake.

From the breeder Seed Junky Genetics, Wedding Cake is an indica dominant hybrid that delivers the perfect balance of head and body high. Also known as Pink Cookies, it is a cross between Triangle Kush and Animal Mints.

Winner of the Best Hybrid of 2018 at the SoCal High Times Medical Cannabis Cup, Wedding Cake was named by L.A.-based Jungle Boys because of its vanilla frosting aroma and vibrant, sparkly trichomes. With limonene, caryophyllene and mycerene being the dominant terpenes, a sour earthy scent was initially present, followed by a sweet and almost tangy aroma after cracking open the dense, frosty buds.

This strain is known for its high THC content, which is why it’s best reserved for experienced smokers. The more novice Cannabis consumer should definitely heed caution when going for a piece of this cake! This particular phenotype tested at over 27% THC, making it easy to see why it’s a favorite on the menu for the team at INSA in East Hampton, Massachusetts. 

The body effects came on about 15 minutes after inhalation and delivered waves of warmth to muscles and joints, followed by a sense of euphoric, physical comfort for well into an hour after. The smoke itself was a little rough, but still extremely pleasant – leaving my head clear and almost hyper-focused.

While this may be an indica dominant hybrid, it won’t likely leave you couch-locked or sleepy. On the contrary, I found this strain to be motivational and mentally incredibly uplifting! Mind you, if consumed in larger amounts, it will have your body feeling very relaxed. Perfect for a rainy day or a late afternoon sesh, Wedding Cake will leave you with an overall feeling of bliss and the ability to stay focused.
