The strain’s terpenes favor Humulene at the top and then in less prestigious amounts, Limonene and Terpinolene. Humulene is the woody, spicy terpene that gives a lot of strains the unique taste of earth and pepper. You may recognize it as the taste of hops, which also contains Humulene. When grown inside, the strain flowers in 7 – 9 weeks; outside, it flowers in late September or early October.
GROWING TIP: We mentioned the landrace heritage being significant. Growers will be happy to know that its strong genetic past makes Wedding Cake immune to most anything that could hit your garden, from temperature changes to mold to diseases to pests. The strain tends to grow short so it doesn’t need staking – you’ll be fine so long as you keep the growing conditions consistent. The main thing we recommend to make it easier is to use reflective lining in a growing tent, which will evenly distribute light and help this strain along.
Wedding Cake doesn’t have the most stimulating aroma, surprisingly. It’s not a blast of vanilla sweetness like you’d expect but a much more low-key mix of earth and flower scents, with sweet tones underneath. The flavor is doughy and sour, almost like sourdough bread.
The strain works wonders for users who want to control their nerves or anxiety. Neuromuscular regulation is also a term that gets tossed around, meaning that Wedding Cake can help people deal with depression and reduce symptoms related to muscular sclerosis and fibromyalgia. Due to these medicinal advantages, Wedding Cake is easily recommendable for those that can handle the THC content. It doesn’t have as strong or memorable a flavor as new users might expect, but its resistance in the ground and in your mouth has made it a favorite among growers and users alike.
