Effects & Usage



Wedding Cake is a delectable indica-dominant hybrid with disputed origins that has taken the cannabis world by storm with its rich aroma and stunning effects. Boasting a potent THC consistently in the high 20s, this strain is not for the fainthearted. However, those with a high THC tolerance will truly enjoy its balanced effects that provide both mental clarity and physical comfort.


Indulging in Wedding Cake feels like a treat, just like having said dessert on that special night. Being one of the most potent strains available, it is unsuitable for rookies. Those with a higher tolerance will enjoy its blissful effects.

The onset of Wedding Cake’s effects is a gradual journey that starts with a gentle cerebral uplift, courtesy of its sativa lineage. Users will feel euphoric and uplifted, with a clear head and a fresh, positive outlook on things. It also boosts creativity, making it an ideal strain for work that demands inventiveness. As the high progresses, the strain’s indica properties start to shine, delivering a profoundly relaxing sensation that melts away aches and stress. While you will be mellow, couchlock is unlikely if your consumption is moderate. These well-rounded effects make Wedding Cake suitable for various occasions or as a post-dinner treat to unwind after a long day.

Wedding Cake can make for an excellent medicinal agent due to its potency. However, it is also why some patients prefer to abstain from it. Only use the strain for therapeutic benefits if your tolerance to THC is already high. Otherwise, we would recommend looking elsewhere. However, should your tolerance be high, try Wedding Cake, which can help with various conditions. For example, its uplifting and relaxing effects may reduce depression and anxiety.

The strain is also prevalent in the treatment of musculoskeletal pains and conditions. Its potent pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties, bolstered by caryophyllene, are appreciated by users with muscular sclerosis, arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Side effects

As it is one of the most potent strains on the market, Wedding Cake can easily be overconsumed, leading to paranoia and anxiety. These effects can be mitigated if you moderate your intake mindfully. However, we would not recommend this strain to beginners or very occasional smokers, as it requires significant THC tolerance to be enjoyable to the user.

Besides these, you can also expect the common adverse effects of cannabis use in the form of eye and mouth dehydration.

Taste & Smell


Wedding Cake earns its name from its delectable flavour profile and aroma, reminiscent of a delicious slice of a freshly-baked dessert. The strain delights the senses with a complex bouquet of sweet, earthy, and fruity notes, accented by hints of vanilla and a touch of hoppy spiciness, thanks to humulene. The taste mirrors this complex aroma, coating the tongue with a velvety blend of creamy sweetness and tangy fruitiness. You can also expect a pleasant lingering vanilla aftertaste. The stunning multicoloured hues on the buds complement the experience, making it a visual delight.

Wedding Cake is known under a few names, such as Triangle Mints #23 and Pink Cookies. Its origins remain equally disputed to this day. It is most widely considered a cross of Girl Scout Cookies with Cherry Pie. However, several other sources claim that the parents of Wedding Cake are Animal Mints and Triangle Kush. Regardless of the lineage, Wedding Cake is sure as unique of a strain as its name.

Growing conditions

Wedding Cake is a relatively hardy strain that can be grown both indoors and outdoors. It will thrive in a temperate climate. It is quite resistant to pests and mould and grows relatively short, which makes it suitable for small spaces. However, it requires some maintenance. The thick, heavy branches need regular pruning to support the weight of the buds. In addition, the temperature and humidity levels require frequent supervision and keeping them at constant levels.

A short flowering period and bountiful yields compensate for these minor difficulties. Within 7 to 9 weeks, growers can expect 500-600 grams per square metre indoors and up to 600 grams per outdoor plant.
