Guava Cake is a rare hybrid strain, a cross of the well-regarded Wedding Cake and its phenotype, Gold Leaf.
Its potency, with THC levels scaling up to 25-30%, makes it a top contender for seasoned cannabis consumers. The presence of terpenes such as Caryophyllene and Myrcene adds a spicy, herbal note to its profile while aiding in its therapeutic potential.
Upon the first puff, Guava Cake sparks the senses with a joyous upliftment, transitioning into a relaxed euphoria. This strain sparks spontaneous creativity, making everything around seem amusing. As you enjoy the taste of this unique cultivar, you may find yourself in a happy, peaceful state of mind. You will appreciate this bud more after a long day at work or those lazy weekends when you want to relax with some Netflix.
The Indica-dominance of the strain ensures a tranquillising effect after the euphoric and giggly onset. As such, it is best recommended for evening and night use. Guava Cake makes for an excellent party favour if you find yourself in a sleepover.
The initial cerebral rush gradually mellows down into a full-bodied relaxation. A few more puffs, and you might find yourself happily glued to the couch, ready to embrace a deep, restful sleep.
Guava Cake’s high THC content and Indica genetics help provide relief from chronic pain, muscle spasms, and insomnia. For those struggling with appetite, the flower can be a game-changer, stimulating hunger and helping combat nausea. It can also be a helpful remedy to destress.
Due to its high THC levels, Guava Cake is not advised for beginners as it can induce anxiety or paranoia in people with low tolerance. Taking it early in the day can also make you lazy and less productive, so be mindful of that. Usual side effects include dry mouth and eyes, which are familiar with most cannabis strains.
Taste & Smell
The tropical lineage of Guava Cake shines through in its flavour and aroma. With each inhale, the taste buds are greeted by a blend of earthy spiciness mixed with sweet tropical fruits. The exhale leaves a smooth, herbal, and fruity aftertaste. The buds exude an aromatic blend of sweet, tropical berries with an underlying herbal note. This strain is visually appealing with its dark to forest green nugs, sprinkled with a generous coating of white trichomes and amber pistils, often showing a purple tinge in cooler climates.
Originating from a painstaking process of pheno hunting and backcrossing, Guava Cake was crafted by breeding a cut of Gold Leaf (a phenotype of Wedding Cake) with itself. This process was aimed at achieving a more balanced effect and enhanced flavours. The result is a 70-30 Indica-dominant hybrid that carries forward the sweet, tropical essence and the indica-leaning effects of its parent strains.
Guava Cake is a fairly manageable strain to cultivate, even for novice growers – provided you can get your hands on its seeds. This rare cultivar is hard to come by.
With a flowering time of 7-9 weeks, it doesn’t demand extensive care but thrives well in controlled temperature and humidity conditions. Its relatively short stature – not exceeding 100 cm – makes it a convenient choice for indoor cultivation. The plant requires balanced feeds of macronutrients and is prone to mould and powdery mildew; hence, monitoring air circulation and humidity is essential. The plant has decent yields, too, thus rewarding the patience and care put into the growth.
