Cake Pop Strain

Among a diverse selection of cannabis, the Cake Pop weed strain emerges as a true treat for enthusiasts seeking a delightful and aromatic experience. Cake Pop is the delicious result of refined genetics, offering a harmonious fusion of flavors, scents, and effects. Let’s delve into the world of Cake Pop, exploring the captivating characteristics of this delectable delight.

Some cultivators may keep certain breeding and growing information to themselves, making finer details harder to access. Nonetheless, our ILGM research team does its best to keep all information accurate and up-to-date.

Cake Pop strain genetics

Though a few breeders offer the Cake Pop strain, their genetics differ. It’s unconfirmed which cultivar came first, but many believe the Birthday Cake/Fire OG cross started it all. 

The ever-popular Birthday Cake (aka Birthday Cake Kush) blends the legendary GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) with the flavourful Cherry Pie, according to sources. It’s an indica-dominant hybrid with relaxing and calming effects, making it a wonderful evening strain. The famously potent Fire OG comes from San Fernando Valley OG Kush and OG Kush. This hybrid catapults your spirit, letting you relish in euphoric energy before gently pulling you back down into the warm embrace of your bed. 

Combining such renowned cultivars makes this Cake Pop hybrid a delectable and well-rounded experience. Some say it’s the handiwork of Clearwater Genetics, but that’s unconfirmed.

Other Cake Pop cultivars include Cake Dance x Creamsicle OG (breeder unknown) and Tart Pops x Slurricake (by Dr. Dankenstein). There’s also Cake Pops Auto, which sources say is a Bessie Cake/Runtz Auto cross from 3rd Shift Genetics. Like with the dessert it’s named after, the ingredients ultimately depend on who’s in the kitchen (so to speak), so check with your dispensary first.

Is the Cake Pop strain indica or sativa?

The Cake Pop marijuana strain has 80% indica to 20% sativa. Its indica dominance brings relaxation and tranquility, while its sativa-driven mental energy adds subtle creative sparks. Cake Pop is perfect for unwinding with a gentle body high while maintaining a touch of euphoria.

Growing Cake Pop strain

There may be little Cake Pop strain information floating around, but sources say it’s moderately easy to grow. As an indica-dominant hybrid, it responds well to colder temperatures with high resilience against pests and bud rot. It grows to a medium height (30-60 inches) and may not react well to high humidity levels, so ensure adequate airflow. 

The Cake Pop cannabis strain plant is strikingly eye-catching. Its nugs are densely packed, showcasing a vibrant mix of deep green and subtle olive tones. A blanket of trichomes glistens across the surface, giving the buds a frosty, almost sugary appearance reminiscent of its namesake. 

Cake Pop strain flowering time

Baking a delicious cake takes time, and so does cultivating a rewarding harvest. Fortunately, the wait isn’t painfully long, with the flowering time lasting around 55-63 days. Outdoors, you can expect to harvest around mid-October. 

Cake Pop strain autoflowering time

The autoflowering version of the Cake Pop strain, like most autoflowers, starts blooming very early. Due to the ruderalis within its genetics, it doesn’t require light deprivation to start flowering, so the first buds can be expected to appear after four to six weeks. The Cake Pop marijuana strain autoflowers can be harvested after ten to fourteen weeks. That makes its (auto)flowering time between four and ten weeks long.

Cake Pop strain yield

The average yield of any cannabis plant depends on several factors, including the skill of the cultivator, growing conditions, strain genetics, and size and health of the plant. It also differs between photoperiod and autoflower plants. However, you can use general estimates as a potential yield per plant guideline. For photoperiod plants, this is generally around 16-64 ounces (450-1814 grams) outdoors and 8-24 ounces (227-680 grams) indoors. 

Cake Pop strain autoflower yield

The potential yield per plant for autoflowering plants is 1.7-7 ounces (50-200 grams) outdoors and 1.7-4.2 ounces (50-120 grams) indoors.

Cake Pop strain effects

Fans of Cake Pop say it has balanced, well-rounded effects suitable for daytime or evening consumption. But it can pack a punch, so be wise and consume in moderation. 

The initial onset is characterized by a gentle cerebral euphoria that uplifts your mood, making you feel happy and relaxed. As the high deepens, mild body relaxation sets in, alleviating tension and stress without causing heavy sedation. In Cake Pop strain reviews, consumers say these effects may relieve symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression, and numerous physical ailments. You may even find the munchies-inducing properties help with nausea and loss of appetite. 

You could experience mild side effects like dry mouth and thirst, low blood pressure, and red eyes, especially in larger doses. But overall, Cake Pop is a pleasant smoke many cannabis enthusiasts will enjoy. 

How strong is the Cake Pop strain?

Boasting a moderate to high potency, Cake Pop delivers a gentle cerebral euphoria with mild body relaxation… provided you don’t go overboard. After all, the Cake Pop strain’s THC level ranges from 20-26%.

Sources say it has around 0.27-0.53% CBD with a CBG of just over 0.1%. However, honest and reliable data is rare, and more research is needed.

Cake Pop strain terpenes

The Cake Pop strain’s terpene profile is a symphony of aromatic delights, with myrcene taking the lead. This dominant terpene infuses the bud with earthy, herbal notes and provides relaxing and soothing effects. The spicy element in the flavor is likely due to caryophyllene, which has also been found to have antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. 

Aroma & Flavor

Cake Pop lives up to the anticipation its name creates – and then some. Its fragrance is reminiscent of freshly baked goods with a hint of nuttiness, which carries over to the flavor. The inhale is smooth with a burst of rich vanilla and cake-like flavors that coat the palate and a peppery spice flavor on the exhale.
