Unfortunately, the Wedding Cake strain doesn’t really taste like a wedding cake, but rather earthy and sour. Only towards the end do you get a slight hint of sugary sweetness. But despite its deceiving name, the Wedding Cake strain is super potent, with THC levels around 27%.
Wedding Cake strain is, perhaps, one of the most potent marijuana strains in the market today. Consistently, it tests beyond the 20% level and borders on the 30%. No doubt, it is a thrill seeker’s strain. Beginners may find its level of potency to be too intense and overwhelming. This is not to say that one should totally avoid the Indica-leaning bud. Rather, that moderation must be practiced at all times.
With that said, bells ring as Wedding Cake’s onset begins. It is usually quick to take effect, blanketing the mind with a rush of euphoria. After hours, it settles into the limbs; kneading it like a masseuse. Depending on the dosage, the comedown could be sedating.
The batter from Girl Scout Cookies was used to develop Wedding Cake. From it, the strain gained its creative and mind-bending cerebral buzz as well as its undertones of violet. Its other qualities, on the other hand, are from Cherry Pie which is renowned for its flavorful buds and long-lasting high.
Wedding Cake strain Effects
Wedding Cake induces a euphoric head high that clears the mind after it settles. It improves the mood too, leaving users in a happy place as it ushers away worries and problems.
Its comedown is deeply relaxing. Starting off at the temples, a light pressure makes its way down to the rest of the body. It kneads each muscle free of tension and removes tightness around the limbs. In this way, users can move like a well-oiled machine; improving efficiency in completing tasks.
One thing to remember though is that it each bud contains at least 25% THC and could go beyond. Using more than one’s personal tolerance could lead to an overwhelming head high that stuns users into a couch lock. As such, moderation is essential in enjoying Wedding Cake as a strain.
What Is Wedding Crasher Cannabis?
Like we said in the intro, Wedding Crasher weed is a strain bred from Wedding Cake (a hybrid), and Purple Punch – a relatively popular indica flower that is one-half Granddaddy Purple and one-half Larry OG. (So funny as it may be, you could legitimately say that Grandaddy Purple is actually a “botanical granddaddy” of Wedding Crasher).
Symbiotic Genetics is generally credited as the mastermind breeder behind the Wedding Crasher strain. They conceived the great idea of combining two relatively sweet and fruity flavors. This produced a solid blend of (mostly) indica-dominant traits.
From a genetic perspective, Wedding Crasher weed is classified as a hybrid. Nevertheless, its indica-specific traits could rank in as high as 45% or so. (Looking at the flower and/or the entire plant of a specific crop would help give you a better idea of the indica profile).
We’ve seen Wedding Crasher weed with THC content upwards of 20%, but again, this is something that will vary slightly from flower to flower. It doesn’t have a high CBD content though, so be advised that it will produce a pretty legit high. One commenter on Leafly even said it made him feel like Batman.
THC Content – Highest Test
Users of Wedding Cake know it is a heavy hitter. Lab results have revealed versions of this strain with a THC content of 27%! We have written before about how a strain’s THC content doesn’t necessarily provide the high you expect.
However, Wedding Cake is every bit as potent as its lab report suggests; arguably more so! We DO NOT recommend this strain if you are a weed-smoking novice. It can send you into dreamland before you know what is happening!
CBD Content – Highest Test
Wedding Cake seldom has more than 0.23% CBD and usually has approximately 0.1%. As a result, it commonly has a THC: CBD ratio of around 250:1. However, it also has high levels of the terpene, beta-caryophyllene, which creates a similar response to high-CBD strains like Harlequin. As the terpene hits the same CB2 receptors, Wedding Cake is an excellent medicinal strain.
Wedding Cake Medical
Wedding Cake is, no doubt, an impressive recreational strain. Its THC levels induce a powerful cerebral and body high that uplift users and relax the body. However, the presence of its psychoactive compounds and its subsequent effects also have significant therapeutic value.
For one, its happy high doubles as a source of comfort to the chronically stressed and the psychologically distressed. It enhances the mood, eliminates worries, and temporarily pushes back problems in place of a calmer disposition. Simultaneously, it also stabilizes emotions which assists in managing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
It has potent analgesic properties that release users from pains and aches induced by certain health conditions such as arthritis, joint pains, migraines and headaches. Its soothing body buzz kneads the muscles free of tension too. And, as a result, it is also effective against cramps and gastrointestinal contractions.
Another strain that helps with a number of common pains, Hindu Kush is a fragrant and pleasant pure breed that is also an effective tranquilizer.
As a natural alternative to opioid-based medicine, it rarely comes with negative side effects such as nausea. On the contrary, it appeases the stomach and would even stimulate the appetite. Patients with eating disorders such as anorexia could gain back the weight, especially under the guidance of a health professional.
Its sedating buzz eventually takes over and instills a deep drowsiness that, in all likelihood, will lull one to bed. As such, users with insomnia may find a reprieve in the strain. Not only that, it also enhances the quality and quantity of sleep.
Wedding Cake blossoms around the second or third week of October, but some growers may begin to see fully mature flowers around the last few days of September. At harvest, one could harvest at least 21 ounces of buds per plant.
Wedding Cake is an intense strain that can help to temporarily alleviate pain, anxiety, and depression. It has an extremely high THC level, and it ‘feels’ like you have just dabbed a concentrate! Although it is a relaxing smoke, it is not for the beginner or individuals with a low weed tolerance.
Some versions of Wedding Cake have a slightly higher CBD content and lower THC level. This may reduce the risk of experiencing side effects. After using it, your mind will feel invigorated, and you may break out into an uncontrollable fit of giggles. Eventually, your body will feel relaxed, and you may slip into a peaceful sleep.
