Wedding Cake, or Pink Cookies, is an exotic hybrid strain that is the descendant of two modern-day favourites, Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie, resulting in an enticing and mouth-watering delight that combines the vanilla-like sweetness of Cookies genetics and the fruitiness of Cherry Pie. Much like traditional desserts, it is recommended to save Wedding Cake for last, or more specifically for night-time usage, as both it’s extreme potency may be too intoxicating for day-time.
The strength of Wedding Cake is backed up by both its near debilitating effects and its outrageous THC concentrations. Laboratory tests done on average Wedding Cake harvests have shown that THC concentrations for this strain can reach upwards of 26%, making it one of the most potent strains we have on our menu. Take care of any responsibilities or plans prior to smoking or consuming Wedding Cake, as the high of this strain is strong enough to incapacitate users and negate any feelings of productivity with its immobilizing body high. What makes Wedding Cake unique is that it retains sativa-effects or traits from its Cherry Pie lineage, which is a direct descendant of the pure sativa strain Durban Poison. Wedding Cake is known to lull users into a cerebral and euphoric mind-state that is accompanied by a case of the giggles and a warm or soothing sensation throughout their body. Asides from its recreational purposes, Wedding Cake has many medicinal applications and is most effective in aiding with stress, anxiety, depression, muscle spasms and insomnia.
As visually appealing as a celebratory wedding cake, this strain inherits the beautiful physical features of its Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies lineage. These dense and cone-shaped buds resemble typical indica flowers in nature and are made fluorescent by an abundance of bright and luminous trichome heads. It is recommended that Wedding Cake be busted up with a grinder as the THC trichomes are incredibly resinous and sticky when touched. As a product of Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies, Wedding Cake is a genetically gifted strain. The aroma-profile begins as the comforting, vanilla-like cookie essence of GSC and transitions into a tart, cherry pie sweetness.
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Barack Obama once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.
|BEST FOR NIGHT-TIME USAGE||BEST FOR DAY-TIME USAGE|
In such a growing and experimental industry, science has made it possible for the creation of new strains to meet the unique demand of consumers. Hybrid strains are created when geneticists or growers cross-breed pure indica strains, sativa strains or other hybrid strains together to create a new plant, and they can lean towards either being indica dominant, sativa dominant or an equal 50/50 balance of its parentage. What is different about hybrid plants compared to indicas or sativas is that the range of effects are endless. Hybrid strains are very complex and can be bred to contain both sativa and indica characteristics, making them great for those looking for the best of both worlds, in a sense.
