You don’t need to be celebrating your big day to enjoy a few puffs of this popular cannabis strain, but just like cake, it’s the perfect treat before bed. Like most high profile strains, the Wedding Cake strain also goes by Triangle Mints #23 and Pink Cookies, so if you see any of these names at the dispensary, you’ll know what to expect. Grown in the California sunshine, this west coast strain is always a crowd pleaser and is a great choice whether you’re smoking to relax and destress after a tough day or consuming for therapeutic purposes. After reading our Wedding Cake strain review, you’ll know all the ins and outs of this rare cannabis strain.

Ever since it was developed by L.A. based breeders, Seed Junky Genetics, the Wedding Cake strain has been highly sought after by cannabis enthusiasts around the globe. The indica dominant hybrid strain was dubbed Wedding Cake due to its sparkly white, crystal covered appearance and sweet vanilla scent. This marijuana strain is universally loved for its high potency that ranges from 22-25% THC and its relaxing and uplifting effects. Medical patients choose Wedding Cake to treat chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, and stress. The Wedding Cake strain won multiple awards and accolades throughout the years including the Best Hybrid Flower at the 2018 SoCal High Times Medical Cannabis Cup and being named Leafly’s Strain of the Year in 2019. The award-winning strain was created by crossing Triangle Kush with the extremely potent Animal Mints. Users get the best of both parent strains such as the high THC content and full mind and body relaxation.

Is Birthday Cake and Wedding Cake the same strain?

They may both have cake in their name, but don’t let this similarity fool you. Birthday Cake and Wedding Cake are two completely different strains. Though both indica dominant hybrids with a sweet flavor, the Birthday Cake strain is bred from two equally indulgent strains, Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie. Birthday Cake has a THC level of roughly 20% and has deeper relaxing effects than Wedding Cake. Both cannabis strains are ideal for treating pain, insomnia and appetite loss, however many stoners also say that Birthday Cake works well on inflammation and headaches.

Medical benefits and effects

“So far the best strain I’ve smoked. I get anxious easily when I smoke weed and my ADHD usually speeds up that problem. This is not how I feel when I smoke wedding cake. So far it has been a great help dealing with my stress and makes me feel light, sparkly, and comfortable.”

“Excellent strain. It’s an absolute hybrid but it doesn’t feel like at first. First came a massive Sativa-like rush almost to the point of too much. Then the stain takes a wonderful nosedive into Indica land. Very much a creeper, mild munchies, and settles into pleasant relaxation.”

“The dessert name does much justice in classifying a general themed taste, sweet! In addition the smell is very strong & pleasant. In terms of the high itself, for me, it was very peaceful as well as productive. Definitely felt more on the sativa side with the batch I got, I also feel more open minded and refreshed after smoking this strain.”

“While in this strain, I experienced mass relaxation and even to a point where my friend just passed the f**k out. Listening to music makes the experience ten times better as usual and god damn it gives me a sweet tooth.”


“What a amazing strain it hits so hard and gives a amazing high....literally after one hit from my bong I was stoned. 100% will buy again”

“I just picked up an eighth of this and I’m impressed. The testing has it at 27.3% THC. Took a big hit off the bong and had to sit down. Hits you as soon as you exhale. Very nice flavor, earthy berries much like others have said, it has a great head high with a nice stone too. Good for pain but I would not do anything that requires focus. Enjoy!”
