GENERAL EFFECTS (MIND + BODY):
Psychoactive and physical effects present themselves simultaneously immediately after exhaling.
This is the type of strain who’s flavor will strike you and you’ll then drift into a sort of focused cerebral tunnel vision and be completely immersed in whatever grabbed your attention. …all the while forgetting the bowl is only partially spent and far from ablaze…you may even forget you have a bowl in hand.

For instance, I almost never have any written commentary in this section which is basically a heading for the sections below( Mind + Body). This strain will take you down a few rabbit holes.
Novice patients and/or those with lower tolerances take heed: much like the ceremony its name refers to, Wedding Cake holds a lot of gravity…and it plays for keeps! 5/5 Bravo Harvest.

APPEARANCE + AROMA + TASTE :

APPEARANCE:
The buds in both eighths I purchased from Mission Catonsville were comprised of one large 2 gram bud and a tiny flock of small dense nugs. I think that Harvest made sure of this: to try and supply each packaged eighth with at least one large bud.

And large they were.

Good For Bowls and Rolls:This batch definitely requires the use of a grinder to break down the rock hard buds.

AROMA:

  • Sweet-hint of sweet berries
  • Sour- like sour dough bread
  • Musk-Afghani Black Hash-like taste upon exhale
  • Artificial-generic creamy-berry type taste reminiscent of other “cake” strains

TASTE:

  • Musk-Afghani Black Hash-like taste upon exhale
  • Artificial-generic creamy-berry type taste reminiscent of other “cake” strains

THE NEW PACKAGING:
I used to actually like the original Harvest packaging…at least the “original” to me…in dispensaries in Maryland.  What can be called the telltale yellow zip-lock at first seemed a bit generic to me. But, with time, I began to look at it more like Harvest’s branding and one thing was sure: If it looked like that, there was a Harvest strain inside.

The best thing about Harvest’s yellow zip-lock was its window into the product.  After Covid-19 hit the stores, “deli-style” dispensaries were unable to sell non pre-packaged flower.

Overnight Harvest became the only Cannabis producer in Maryland to give you a visual window into what you were about to purchase.

That being said, and most likely because, as it is now, you can’t inspect the flower before purchase anyway so it hardly matters…What seemed like a plus overnight became a minus the day after.

Naturally Harvest felt the transparent window into the zip-lock bag’s goodies was unnecessary and most likely too expensive… This has been replaced with an opaque, rather generic, black and white zip-lock bag.

A CLOSER LOOK INSIDE:
What we find here is a very high level of Limonine at .590%, which definitely does its share to open the mind and clear the pathways.  
This level of Limonene could also have you potentially cleaning until late in the evening depending on the circumstances.

But, I didn’t find it to precipitate any anxiety, which I’m sure is attributable to the Caryophelene (.401%)  and Terpinolene (.025%).

CONCLUSION:
Wedding Cake is a potent hybrid offspring of Cherry Pie X GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) with flavors that are sweet and sour and high that includes a spectrum of effects. Wedding Cake’s Durban Poison lineage and OG genetics supply you with an intense psychoactive cerebral experience anchored by a simultaneous progressive wave of deep relaxing stress- alleviating Indica Effects that won’t leave you “couch locked”.

THE LONG ROAD HOME (…my toke)
Wedding Cake is quite the package when it comes to classic Cannabis experience. This is what we look for a strain a balanced experience between the cerebral and the physical.
To say that Durban Poison’s traits are evident in Wedding Cake would be an understatement.

Coming from both sides of the hereditary equation, Its landrace origins figure prominently in Wedding Cakes set of effects.

The initial rush of cerebral activity is soon followed by an instinct to act. This influx of restlessness and “get-up-and-go” motivation is definitely a shared trait of the Landrace legend. Wedding Cake takes this to another level of heady euphoria and a warm blanket of Indica physical relaxation to top it off.

The flavors I encountered with Harvest’s rendition of Wedding Cake spanned from sweet to sour to musky. But, its nondescript flowery cherry undertones left the greatest impression.

Harvest’s version of Wedding Cake helps to exemplify the cerebral-functional side of Wedding Cake’s potential as a very useful and broadly applied strain.
I would most definitely purchase Wedding Cake by Harvest again even at the same percentages of THCa and Terpenes.
