Wedding Cake Strain
A Marriage of Good Genes and Good Vibes
As the medical marijuana program in Pennsylvania continues to grow, most patients have learned to recognize their favorite strains. Solevo Wellness offers a broad variety of products that come from many different strains of cannabis. Recently, our patients voted the Wedding Cake strain as one of their fan favorites. Let’s dive in!
What Is A Cannabis Cross-Strain?
Finding the right strain can be difficult for anyone, especially patients who are new to the Program
Whether it’s a personal preference or seeking out a specific treatment, cross-strains, also known as hybrids, are usually a well balanced solution for many patients’ needs. Cross-strains inherit their unique characteristics from a lineage of strain cultivation that leads to specific medicinal relief.
A cross-strain from the local dispensary has likely gone through several generations of selective breeding to ensure the consistency of its characteristics. wedding cake for sale | wedding cake for sale usa | wedding cake for sale uk
Through modern cannabis genetics, growers will often breed two genetically different strains together in order to produce a new cross-strain. Cannabis growers and processors select certain strains to purify and strengthen, in order to enhance specific characteristics like potency, higher yields, specific aromas and diverse terpene profiles.
Each cannabis seed is unique and will express different traits, known as phenotypes. Once the desired phenotype is achieved, a breeder will usually pollinate the new strain again with itself or a parent – essentially inbreeding the strain in a process known as back-crossing to reinforce certain qualities.
So, in simpler terms, cross-strains isolate the best qualities of each strain and combine them to produce a new plant strain.
A Solevo Wellness Patient-Favorite Strain: The Wedding Cake Strain
Growers aren’t just limited to cultivating long-established strains. Many of the marijuana sold today at Pennsylvania dispensaries are cross-strains that embody the best qualities from two different plants.
Cultivated from FarmaceuticalRX, Wedding Cake is a cross-strain of Triangle Kush and Animal Mints originally created by Seed Junky™ Genetics.
As an Indica dominant hybrid, Wedding Cake is a popular choice for patients seeking to relieve stress, alleviate anxiety and treat symptoms like pain and inflammation. Its effects are intense and physically relaxing but not overly sedating, while its psychoactive properties tend to be uplifting and mood enhancing.

About Wedding Cake
History & Genetics
Wedding Cake is a sweet strain, of course, but it packs a spicy aftermath (just like marriage). It’s great for calming down and going out, even for doing nothing – the ideal people watcher’s strain. It was bred by an unknown creator from prestigious parents – Cherry Pieand GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) – and delivers a high-20s THC count that should keep even the most jaded users interested.
Wedding Cake is sometimes called Pink Cookies. We mentioned its most commonly accepted lineage, though some seed banks suggest that it’s actually a Triangle Mints phenotype. We believe it’s more likely to be the Cherry Pie + GSC genetics because of how having parents that are both landracesativa strains like Durban Poison have influenced the results. Wedding Cake leans towards indica (60/40) and like GSC has leaves that are both dark and light green, with dense buds, and numerous sugary crystals.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
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.
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.
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. When grown inside, the strain flowers in 7 – 9 weeks; outside, it flowers in late September or early October. 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.
