Wedding Cake Strain: Everything You Need to Know

The Wedding Cake strain also goes by Pink Cookies. It’s a potent and popular hybrid cannabis strain with numerous medicinal and recreational benefits as well as a tasty flavour. Wedding Cake is the descendant of Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie, two famously delicious baked goods. Its children are Ice Cream Cake and Wedding Crasher. This chronic cake can clock up to 27% THC—one of the highest we have in our box of tricks.
Wedding Cake Strain Effects
I tried Wedding Cake on a warm day while editing a longform piece of writing that I needed to get completed and compile my suggestions. My focus was off. I didn’t have much to say about the project on the first read through. After a few hits of Wedding Cake, my mind let go a little and started seeing the writing from new angles, as well as focusing on what it was trying to say, and my notes became more elaborate and the suggestions much deeper in scope.
I usually feel a touch of paranoia if I smoke too much, but Wedding Cake was a dream. So chill without monging me out, so I could focus, keep energized, and think outside the box. Definitely a strain for all of you creative tokers. I was in the zone and forgot to eat lunch. When I did eat, I ate and ate and ate. So, if you struggle with eating too little, this could be an appetizing strain.
While these effects sound more sativa leaning, that’s only half the story. The Wedding Cake strain didn’t leave me wired or keep me awake, as it’s around a 60% indica hybrid. My body felt pleasantly relaxed. Other reviewers report relaxing and uplifting effects, and medicinal fans use this strain to ease the symptoms of pain, anxiety, and depression.
Appearance, Flavour, and Scent
The Wedding Cake strain has an earthy and slight buttery taste with a hint of vanilla and a touch of sweetness. The vanilla and sweet flavours give it its name, a presentation of its Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie genetics. The scent can also be skunky due to its OG Kush ancestry. Sample tokers report a mix of pepper, citrus, and herb when smoked.
“OMG!! Tasty af fire strain.. One of the best fo sho. Take the pain away. Can I marry it?”
"I took 3 large bong hits about 20 minutes ago.... A+++!! It's been a very long time since I've been this high (with a dash of stoned) and it's a fantastic high! I picked this up today while I was looking for a new sativa to try. During the day I like to smoke something that will both keep me alert and mentally clear. So far, now 40 min after bong hits (and this is all I've written), and I'm definitely alert and thoroughly enjoying the hell out of the strain."
