This slightly sweet, slightly sour and definitely earthy strain may have a name that confuses some, but once you experience this perfect union of heavy duty effects plus unadulterated joy, you’ll know what they meant.
With high THC levels of up to 28%, and averages out at about 22%, Wedding Cake is absolutely one of the serious powerhouse strains out there today. Start low and go slow if this is your first time with Wedding Cake.
It shouldn’t be long before those vanilla, fruity, and even diesel notes are reminding you why Wedding Cake has swept so many awards. This strain took 1st place for Best Hybrid Flower at the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in SoCal 2018, but it was just getting started. In 2019, Wedding Cake won 2nd place indica at the Dopeland Cannabis Cup in Seattle, and 2nd place in the Vape Pen and Cart category in the Cannabis Cup in Oklahoma. But 2019 really capped off when Wedding Cake took the sought-after Strain of the Year from Leafly.
For us, Wedding Cake can be an aptly named strain in a few ways. Is it ideal for an after-wedding reception? Yes, maybe—if you don’t mind forgetting some of it. In fact, that may make it perfect, because who wants to remember every detail of Uncle Andy falling into the punch bowl? If you just want to relax, feel mildly social and totally awesome, this strain will do it.
Wedding Cake is potent, and you will start to feel its effects right away, especially that sweet cerebral sativa buzz. Yes, it melts away into a solid deep body stone, but at first you might feel mildly psychedelic, with some racing euphoric thoughts and enhanced “HD” perceptions. It’s a fun headspace if you’re ready, so relax and enjoy as the rest of the buzz creeps in—and if you like other indica-leaning strains, you know just what I mean. The warm wave of heaviness will wash over your chest and limbs sooner or later, and then you’ll be in for the evening.
Still, even at higher doses and experiencing a little sedation, expect some mental stimulation and the sense of being “tuned in” with Wedding Cake. This is a happy, uplifted, stress-free strain, and although you won’t be running a marathon, you’re not down for the count either.
Wedding Cake Medical Benefits
Wedding Cake is frequently chosen by medical marijuana patients to treat depression, stress, and anxiety since it produces stabilizing, mood-improving feelings.

Many cancer patients also choose Wedding Cake to fight appetite loss and nausea from chemotherapy, disease, and/or other medication. And at high enough doses, Wedding Cake can produce sedation and physical relaxation that can treat insomnia.
Wedding Cake Taste and Smell
Wedding Cake is a strange strain in terms of smell and taste, principally because it is unexpected. With a slightly sweet aroma, you will also sense doughy, earthy scents. As you inhale, you will be surprised again by sour, earthy, soil flavors that accompany this bud’s sugary notes, and the finish can be citrusy and peppery. Wedding Cake is even better at low temperatures with a vaporizer—it cuts your chance of coughing and hacking, which is high in this strain.
Wedding Cake Cannabinoid/Terpene Profile
Typical THC levels of Wedding Cake are at least 22 percent but up to 28 to 30 percent—a serious heavy hitter.

Some also contain detectable minor cannabinoid levels such as CBN and CBG.
In general, Wedding Cake is high in Limonene, moderate in Caryophyllene, with smaller amounts of Myrcene.
