Strain Review: Wedding Cake

For those looking for a good hybrid strain, you’ve come to the right place. Let me introduce you to a strain called Wedding Cake. While it may not taste like a real wedding cake would, it is somewhat sugary and sweet. The effects are very well balanced and deliver a strong high. And it even comes with some medical properties.

Not your first time trying/ reading about Wedding Cake? How was your experience with it? Drop a comment down below!


Wedding Cake is a hybrid strain with very well-balanced effects. It is also quite potent, as we will discuss below. Another name for this strain is Pink Cookies. So, if you hear Pink Cookies, rest assured that it is the same strain as Wedding Cake.

This strain derives from its parent strains: Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) and Cherry Pie. Knowing this, and knowing the parents of those strains, lets you understand just how great of a strain Wedding Cake may be. The strong and balanced effects are what make this strain so popular, and the same reason why we made a post about it. Even though it is very popular, seeds for this strain are very hard to come by in most places.

The buds of Wedding Cake are typically dense. Wedding Cake gets most of its appearance from one of its grandparent strains: OG Kush. Known to be large and colorful, the dense nugs have more of a resemblance to an indica strain compared to sativa (of course due to OG Kush). Buds tend to have a green to dark green shade to them, with small orange hairs sticking out. The large presence of trichomes on the buds contributes to Wedding Cake’s high THC level.


As mentioned above, Wedding Cake has a very high THC level. Now, this does primarily depend on who grows the strain, where it is grown, and how it is grown. Those plants grown under the right conditions to yield high levels of THC have levels of up to 27%. The average THC level for Wedding Cake (averagely grown) is 16-25%.

While Wedding Cake may seem like a very potent strain (and it sure is), it still delivers a well-balanced range of effects. Understand that these effects tend to be strong due to the potency. Here’s a list of possible effects from Wedding Cake:

  • Uplifting
  • Calming
  • Happy
  • Relaxing
  • Euphoric

After reading this list, it’s not surprising to find that Wedding Cake improves your mood and makes you happy (possibly like your wedding day). One thing to note is that this strain is known to give users a dry mouth. With that, it may be a good idea to bring a drink with you when you smoke some Wedding Cake.

Medical Benefits

Mainly popular for its recreational properties, Wedding Cake also comes with some benefits to the medical field. Medical marijuana patients may use Wedding Cake for several reasons. Here are some medical benefits of using Wedding Cake:

  • Lack of Appetite
  • Nerve Pain
  • Insomnia
  • Stress
  • Depression

The most notable treatment from Wedding Cake seems to be its ability to treat nerve pain. Many cannabis users turn to this strain to help fight that off. If you suffer from nerve pain, or even any condition listed above, consider trying Wedding Cake, it may help in the long run.

Flavors and Scents

Unfortunately, the strain Wedding Cake does not taste like an actual wedding cake. I’m sure many stoners went through trial and error to figure this one out. Some might have even had the munchies and said “Eh, what the heck, I’ll give it a try.” No matter who figured it out, this strain comes with its unique flavors and scents.

Wedding Cake is known to have a tangy sweet earth flavor to it, with hints of pepper found here and there. Many users even claim that it can taste sour at times, most notably at the end (sort of like an aftertaste).

The flavors of Wedding Cake are very closely tied to those of its parent strains, GSC and Cherry Pie. While this may seem obvious, and even common, that is not the case. Many strains that are crossbred from parent strains come out with brand-new flavors and scents. Some of those traits from the parents may combine to create something new. Unluckily for Wedding Cake, this did not happen. It still tastes good, though.

That’s all for this strain review. What did you think? Is Wedding Cake a potential try for you? A potential try once and never try again? Or, maybe it’s a potential try once and stick to forever, just like getting married. Thanks for reading!
