Shatter – Wedding Cake Strain Information
Shatter – 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 Pie and 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 landrace Sativa 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.
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.
