To all the cannabis users out there who always had a thing for cakes, this particular strain may be the next best thing.
Can anyone ever imagine smoking cake? Well, not literally, of course. There happens to be a particular cannabis variety that can give users the same nostalgic feeling of having a slice of sweet and fragrant vanilla-flavored cake while smoking it and it is called Birthday Cake Kush. Well, that is not surprising.
Admittedly, this strain sounds tempting. However, it may not be for the fainthearted because while an actual cake can be suitable for anyone of all ages, this strain is certainly not for users with little tolerance. Find out more about this strain below.
Birthday Cake Kush has been dubbed with quite a few names. Some refer to it simply as Birthday Cake while others call the strain Wedding Cake or Pink Cookies. Either way, there seems to be an agreement regarding its lineage. The strain is believed to be a cross between Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie.

While some tests have recorded a significantly lower maximum THC concentration at 14%, Birthday Cake Kush is actually a moderately potent strain that can have THC levels reaching as high as 25%. In fact, it may not be the best strain for most novice users especially those with low tolerance to THC.
Birthday Cake Kush is mostly Indica, comprising as much as 60% to be exact, but the strain is still capable of producing some exquisite cerebral effects. At the onset, there is a quick uplift in a user’s mood that can be manifested as an irresistibly happy feeling with occasional giggles.
A few minutes into the high, users will start to feel a little heavy throughout the body. This marks the beginning of a deep and relaxing feeling that can make users feel lazy and sleepy. The interesting part is that while the strain relaxes the body, it manages to keep the mind awake.
Nonetheless, this overwhelming relaxation brought about by the strain is capable of sending users into a deep and undisturbed sleep which leads to the conclusion that Birthday Cake Kush is a good way to end a stressful day. It is great as an evening medication or a relaxing treat for any user who only wants to get a good night sleep.
While the most common opinion about this strain’s aroma is that it smells like sweet vanilla with skunky and earthy notes, a more detailed description of its fragrance involves a few other scents.
To wit, if the strain is properly cured upon harvest, it should smell more like damp earthy with a tinge of citrus. If grounded, users will notice some notes of spicy sandalwood that becomes a little harsh on the sinuses if burned.
The strain’s aroma is not just your typical vanilla cake scent. It smells like weed cake which is not a bad thing though as users can still enjoy a nostalgic vanilla cake scent without losing the classic funkiness of weed.
Again, most users agree on the part that Birthday Cake Kush tastes like the actual cake: sweet, nutty, buttery. Well, it does have all these flavors. But, that is just not everything to it.
In fact, the sweetness of this strain depends on certain phenotypes. The cake-like flavors may be prominent in other variants, but others tend to be a little sour and tangy with only a few hints of creaminess.
Nonetheless, when exhaling on its smoke, the sweetness of the strain comes out along with some rich and creamy tastes that can be likened to an actual cake.
Birthday Cake Kush is still a cannabis variety after all, so users are still very likely to experience some side effects from smoking it. In fact, dry mouth is a primary reaction that users commonly get. Although that case is rather manageable, some users may be more watchful for other known side effects like dizziness and anxiety.
Just like the actual cake, Birthday Cake Kush also happens to be a great treat for patients and medical marijuana users.
Since the strain’s CBD concentration is yet to be verified, there is no way of telling if the strain could be beneficial for patients suffering from epilepsy or seizures. However, due to its useful mood-lifting properties, the strain can be a great stress reliever and antidepressant alternative.
At the same time, its analgesic and sedative properties can aid patients regarding relieving pain caused by different illnesses like fibromyalgia, inflammation and even simple headaches and migraines.
Unfortunately, not a lot of information about this strain’s cultivation is made available to the public. So far, what is known about Birthday Cake Kush is the fact that no seeds of the strain are available commercially. Instead, prospective growers may have to take some cuttings from a healthy plant and grow them as clones.
As a hybrid strain, Birthday Cake Kush may be grown either indoor or outdoor. Outdoor cultivation will require a warm or humid climate with daytime temperatures within a 70° Fahrenheit range.
Note that Cherry Pie is a mold resistant plant. Therefore, the same characteristic may be passed down to some phenotypes of Birthday Cake Kush.
There is no clear information as to the average flowering time of Birthday Cake Kush. However, some sources would say it is around 60 days. The strain can produce an average indoor yield of about 12 to 16 ounces per square meter.
