Wedding Cake is a potent indica-hybrid marijuana strain made by crossing Triangle Kush with Animal Mints. Wedding Cake provides relaxing and euphoric effects that calm the body and mind. This strain features a rich and tangy flavour profile with undertones of earthy pepper. Medical marijuana patients choose Wedding Cake to help relieve symptoms associated with pain, insomnia, and appetite loss. Consumers with a low THC tolerance should enjoy this strain with an extra slice of care due to its high THC content. Wedding Cake has soared in popularity over the years and was named Leafly Strain of the Year in 2019. Fun fact: In Canada, this strain is known as Pink Cookies.
Wedding Cake, sometimes known as Pink Cookies or Birthday Cake, is a strain that leans on some extremely popular genetics to yield a balanced high and a dynamic taste. It is a cross between sour hybrid Cherry Pie and the universally appealing Girl Scout Cookies. And although its flavour may vary depending on the phenotype, Wedding Cake doesn’t exactly taste like any traditional nuptial dessert most have ever tasted -- instead, its profile is mostly sour and tangy with just a hint of creaminess. Increasingly popular for its well-rounded effects, Wedding Cake has both recreational and medical applications. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has founded flowers of this strain to have between 16 and a staggering 25% THC.
Wedding Cake is distinguished by its exceptionally large and colourful flowers. The chunky, globular nuggets adhere in a dense, indica-typical bud structure, with tightly curling leaves. The leaves themselves are an earthy green to brown. They are threaded through with orange hairs, which are pistils, meant to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants. A high concentration of trichomes gives this strain its high THC levels as well as an incredibly sticky texture. Wedding Cake’s buds are as aromatically striking as they are visually impressive. When properly cured, they smell vegetal: damp and mossy with just a hint of citrus. Hanging out underneath is a skunky funk that betrays the influence of grandparent strain OG Kush, while breaking up or grinding the buds gives off notes of spicy sandalwood. When combusted, Wedding Cake may be harsh, stinging smokers’ sinuses or throats with its acrid smoke. It tastes sweet and rich on the exhale, with a super subtle creamy mouthfeel that some might compare to the taste of cake.me might compare to cake.
This strain’s high starts relatively quickly, taking hold primarily in the head. Users may find their thoughts to be more fast-paced or intense and may perceive their surroundings more acutely. In the right set and setting, this change in thinking is accompanied by feelings of giddiness or euphoria. Less than an hour into the high, Wedding Cake’s indica side kicks in. Smokers might feel increased warmth and a pleasant heaviness that spreads through the spine and limbs. Even during this sedation, though, cerebral stimulation continues, allowing users to feel uniquely “tuned in” to their surroundings. This holistic combination of mental and physical effects lends itself to complex activities like creating art, exercising, and even sex. As the high progresses, so does this strain’s body high -- after a few bowls, smokers may find themselves couch locked.
Wedding Cake may also be of use to medical cannabis patients. Its tendency to bring about feelings of perceptiveness can aid those with mild to moderate stress, anxiety, and depression, helping them feel more “in the moment.” Because this strain leaves users lucid and level-headed, it can also help those with attention deficit disorders to focus on specific tasks. Wedding Cake’s gradual waves of physical relaxation can soothe both temporary and chronic aches and pains and, in high enough doses, can bring about relief for insomnia. Finally, it can be a potent appetite stimulant for those who have lost their hunger to disease, medication, or chemotherapy.
Whether it is billed as Wedding Cake or Pink Cookies, seeds of this strain do not seem to be available for commercial sale. Prospective growers will need to obtain cuttings from mature plants to grow genetically identical “clones.” It is said to be a temperamental plant, and not the best choice for novice growers. Detailed information on Wedding Cake’s cultivation is not readily available, but, like many hybrids, it can be grown in controlled indoor conditions or outdoors in warm, humid climates with average temperatures in the 70-degree Fahrenheit range. We also know that parent strain Cherry Pie is particularly mould resistant, a characteristic that may carry over to some phenotypes of this strain. Wedding Cake offers growers a moderate yield for their efforts.
While some married couples indulge in a piece of their frozen wedding cake on a first anniversary, a few tokes of Wedding Cake would be just as Unfortunately, the Wedding Cake strain does not 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%. satisfying. Rich and relaxing, it can stoke emotion and passion -- and fortunately, it is not such a knockout that it will prevent you from enjoying a little bit of intimacy.

An acclaimed fusion, famous for its creative, uplifting, and euphoric relaxation properties.
The lab has chosen a more Indica dominant 80% Indica + 20% Sativa version for our WEDDING CAKE™, opting to evolve further the original Pink Cookies genetics “aka wedding cake” from the Barneys Farm vault originally created by Seed Junky Genetics.

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 always be practiced.
Although weddings are fun, very few of us tend to feel the rhythm until the reception, music, drinks, and cannabis (sometimes) kick-in. Well, it is uncommon to witness people toking cannabis in UK wedlock, but this is not the scenario in the USA or Canada.
I mean, come on, didn't you all hear about the infamous Cannabis Wedding Expo 2018 in Lafayette? The expo aimed at encouraging soon-to-be couples to incorporate cannabis to their D-day celebrations, tastefully. And I am quite sure that the expo-organizers must have introduced the audiences to the Wedding Cake or Pink Cookie strain.
The wedding cake is a complicated strain, the lineage of which involves several landraces cross-bred together to give it a balanced high with a dynamic taste.
Though many cannaseurs claim that it tastes minty, peppery, and is not at all sweet or sugary (as the name suggests), the reviews are debatable. But, if you have been high on OG Kush and Durban Poison before, you would know that how pink cookie aka wedding cake is going to hit you.
Cannabis is a mystic plant that has evolved over the centuries to deliver a specific experience and maximize therapeutic effects. Most of you might already be aware that every strain has different properties in terms of flavours, influences, feelings, and odour.
While you might smoke a pot for the sake of feeling euphoric and relaxed, there are strains out there that make you feel hungry, sleepy, uplifted, calm, happy, or even creative. The unusual science behind cannabis has encouraged growers to mix-and-match the breeds to produce a strain that hits you exactly where you want it to.
This whole strain thing is quite mystical, and I love digging-in and tracing the lineage of the highly potent strains like the wedding cake. So, let us get started and enlighten ourselves more on this incredible cheeba.
The wedding cake strain, also known as pink cookies, is an Indica inclined hybrid strain created by Seed Junky Genetics. While some believe that it is a cross between the Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies, some influential cannaseurs claim it to be a rare phenotype of the Triangle Mints Strain, a cross between Triangle Kush and Animal Mints.
The origin of the strain is highly disputable, but, in both cases, its lineage involves OG Kush and Durban Poison, that lends it a minty and peppery taste with a sugary after-burst.
Let us see the complete family tree of Wedding cake and trace back its ancestors so that you know what exactly you are puffing.
Wedding Cake aka Pink Cookie is a crossbreed of Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies. The Cherry Pie strain is further a cross between Granddaddy Purple and Durban Poison (a landrace strain from Durban, South Africa).
The Granddaddy Purple is a hybrid of Big Bud and Purple Urkle (an offspring of Mendocino Purps, a North American landrace). Big Bud is a mixture of Northern Lights (a cross between Afghani and Thai landraces), Skunk (a cross between Colombian Gold and Acapulco Gold landraces), and Afghani.
On the other hand, the Girl Scout Cookies is a cross between Durban Poison and the infamous OG Kush (a hybrid of Hindu Kush landrace with Chemdawg). Chemdawg is yet another mysterious strain with shrouded origin history. However, it is a highly potent strain that hits you the dankest and makes you feel heavy-bodied.
The enfeebling effects of Wedding Cake are because of its Indica dominance. However, this might appear mind-boggling as you move up the family-tree to find strong Sativa dominance of Chemdawg, Colombian Gold, Acapulco Gold and Durban Poison. Well, this process is called backcrossing and makes pink cookie an Indica leaning strain that gives you mental and physical rest.
No matter what, but one thing is for sure - Wedding Cake is a rambling maze of wonky weed hybrids, sweet poison crosses, and tales passed on by people who were probably high on it.
The appearance of Wedding Cake aka Pink Cookie has so much to do with its name. The cannabis plant looks utterly striking because of its large and colourful flowers, stout and globular nuggets woven delicately to form a dense, Indica-type bud structure.
The leaves are curled and earthy-brown coloured, threaded with orange pistils. The slipperiness and tremendous THC levels in the strain are all because of the high concentration of trichomes.
The beautiful resin coat on the plant gives it a vanilla frosting appearance which is why the name, Wedding Cake. Further to this, the pink and purple hues of the plant buds covered with trichomes make it look like a sugar-coated cookie. Hence, the name, Pink Cookie.
Limonene (citrusy) is the focal terpene in Wedding Cake or Pink Cookie strain with small amounts of Caryophyllene (peppery) and Myrcene (herbal). Properly cured buds of Wedding Cake have a doughy and earthy aroma with citrusy undertones. Once you break the buds or rub them in between your palms, it releases a soothing sweet candy-like fragrance.
Wedding Cake's olfactory notes prove that its backcross genetics mixed well in harmony to retain the essential sugary and tart like qualities. Thanks to OG!
Do not let its sweet name misguide you! The Wedding Cake strain is not only known for its dankest hit but, also for its harsh taste upon combustion and smoking. You might experience a sore throat as well.
As you start whiffing the smoke, you are more likely to experience a subtle peppery spiciness (thanks to OG Kush). Even before you get accustomed to this taste, it dissipates quickly as earthy and soil undertones takeover.
If you keep the smoke in your mouth for longer, you can taste the vanilla flavour exploding with a super subtle creamy mouthfeel that some might compare to the taste of a cake. I would recommend you puff on this strain through a vaporizer on low-temperature settings or through a joint. Only then, you will be able to get the perfect and the most flavourful hit of it.
Remember one of those action scenes from a thriller movie where the protagonist stands still and, everything around him moves with a 1/1000 shutter speed in high definition?
It keeps on moving with the same speed until the nightmare ends, he wakes up with a profound snap.
Well, that sounds terrifying. Wedding cake hits you the same way. Its high starts relatively quick, taking hold of your head such that you start seeing everything in high definition. It is cool till here.
You are more likely to experience your thoughts moving intensely, and you start perceiving your surroundings more accurately (reminds me of Lucy). It is probably the time to sit and work on the song or the painting that you left incomplete.
After one hour or so, the Indica side of the strain overpowers and makes you feel giddy, euphoric, and weak. You start feeling warm and a pleasant heaviness that spreads through the spine to the limbs. This state when your mind and body come into supreme harmony, it is perfect for some artwork, exercise, or even sex.
As the high spreads, you can even be couch locked. Wedding cake's genetics is an ideal blend of weed salad that includes Durban Poison, OG Kush, Chemdawg, and Granddaddy Purple. Towards the end of your sesh, you will feel light, sleepy, and relaxed.
Seems like whiffing on this strain after-party is not at all a good idea unless you are going home soon after.
The wedding cake is hands-down one of the best recreational strains as its higher THC levels induce a powerful cerebral and body high that makes you feel good and relaxes you physically as well.
The psychedelic effects of this strain include a happy high that comforts you and aids in depression, PTSD, or anxiety. It pushes back the negative thoughts, eliminates sadness, and places you in a state of calmer disposition. People who suffer from distress and psychological issues are sure to benefit from this strain.
The potent analgesics in the strain ease down the pain and aches induced by health conditions such as arthritis, migraines, sciatica, fibromyalgia, and headaches. Slowly as the Indica kicks-in, your muscles start relaxing, making you feel free from physical stress. It is also helpful in treating cramps and gastrointestinal contractions.
Being a natural alternative to opioid-based medicines, the Wedding Cake rarely comes with negative side effects such as nausea. It appeases the gut and stimulates the appetite. You should surely keep some munchies handy to binge on, after toking on this incredible strain.
The final sedative buzz of the strain lulls you to sleep and treats people with insomnia. If you are stressed and have not slept for weeks, puff on some Wedding Cake and you will be napping like a baby in no time.
In some cases, Wedding Cake is also used to treat neurological conditions such as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
The Wedding cake or Pink Cookie strain has high THC levels than the recommended one, and hence, there are some potential side-effects too. If you get high on too much strain, you will feel dryness in your mouth, extremely sore throat, and red eyes. In exceedingly rare cases, it can even cause panic attacks in people who have previously shown similar symptoms.
If you are a beginner, I would recommend you stay in limits and keep a check on your dosage. Keep yourself hydrated throughout the sesh.
