Wedding Cake Strain

Wedding cake, also called Pink Cookies, is a legendary strain that’s as potent as it is delicious! After using this strain, it takes only a short while before the effects hit you heavily. This indica-dominant hybrid was created by crossing Cherry Pie with Girl Scout Cookies.

This strain is loved by recreational and medical users alike, given its ability to relax the mind and body. With a THC content of up to 25%, this strain packs a punch and lasts a long time, so make sure you don’t have any important plans before indulging in Wedding Cake!

It comes as no surprise that Wedding Cake has also played a role in the creation of several fan-favorite child strains such as Ice Cream Cookies, Wedding Crasher, and Gelato Cake! Advanced level growers are also very keen on this strain, as it produces massive yields.


The high of this strain starts out with a cerebral rush and a burst of mental energy. Wedding Cake causes a shift in thinking and perception of the outside world, with users reporting that they become more sensitive to and aware of what is around them.

Alongside the euphoria it brings, this strain motivates the user to take action, such as beginning a new creative endeavor or crossing some tasks off their to-do list. Although the high is intense, you’re still able to maintain a sense of focus and accomplish whatever you need to get done!

As your Wedding Cake experience winds down, you’ll begin to notice its indica-derived effects. With an increased sense of warmth and calmness, you’ll begin to feel your body decompress. Even with its sedative nature, you’ll still be able to feel a cerebral buzz throughout the high this strain provides.

Appearance and Flavor

Despite its name, wedding cake has a rich and tangy flavor profile. On the inhale, you’ll be able to perceive notes of sour diesel and skunk, with some reporting slight hints of sweet berries. The smoke of this strain is thick but smooth, like buttercream frosting.

As you exhale, your palate will be graced with a rich sweetness as well as a subtle spiciness. Overall, this flavor is certainly unique and not what you’d expect from its title. Each bud is dark green and filled with resin, as well as having amber-toned pistils. Depending on how it was grown, sometimes you can find purple tones throughout the plant and the buds themselves.

Medical Benefits

Because it has so much THC, the Wedding Cake strain can be used to treat a wide range of illnesses and conditions. This strain can help people deal with anxiety and long-term stress in a way that makes them feel calm. Through its cerebral and calming high, this strain is able to provide relief from stress, replacing it with serenity.

This strain also has mood-boosting effects, which lend themselves well to treating depression and mood disorders. When under the influence of Wedding Cake, many users have reported that their emotions were stabilized as well as more positively oriented than before ingestion.

This can also be helpful for those who have been diagnosed with PTSD. Wedding cake can also be helpful in treating physical ailments, given its pain-relieving qualities. The body buzz it produces effectively rids the user of tension, making it good for treating conditions like joint pain, arthritis, headaches, and cramping.

Also, this strain can help make digestive problems less painful, which can be very helpful for someone, for example, who is recovering from an eating disorder like anorexia. Lastly, wedding cake is known to stimulate hunger cues, which is helpful to those who have lost the desire to eat from essential medical treatments like chemotherapy.


Wedding Cake is a strain that is best grown by intermediate to advanced growers because it isn’t very resistant to mold and needs certain conditions to grow well. Each plant grows fairly short and wide, so methods such as Sea of Green can be really efficient in growing this strain.

Wedding Cake needs to be regularly pruned to ensure each plant remains healthy. A proper ventilation system is also needed to aid with air circulation. Depending on how it’s grown, wedding cake has a flowering period of 7 to 9 weeks.

At the time of harvest, you can expect a yield of 18 to 21 ounces per square meter if grown indoors. When grown outdoors, harvest time occurs around late October, with the yields coming out to 21 ounces per plant, at the least.
