Cake Mints strain effects
Beware—the high from Cake Mints weed is a creeper. These buds contain an average of 22% THC, but they take their time to reach your mind and body. Don’t be surprised if several minutes pass before you feel the first hints of euphoria.
Is the Cake Mints strain indica or sativa? It falls on the sleepy side of the spectrum, but the first few hours feel like a mixture of both.
Once the flood gates open, a feel-good avalanche ensues. The brain experiences a rush that clears away the cobwebs and makes room for good things in life. You’re creative and sociable, giggling and chatting about anything and everything.
The indica dominance is slight, relaxing the body but not leaving you couch-locked. Your limbs loosen and remain free of tension and discomfort.
Stoners also report pain release upon toking, making it perfect for unwinding after a long day at your desk. As the late afternoon turns into an evening, the Cake Mints strain lulls you into a peaceful state that ends in a healthy eight hours of sleep.
Cake Mints strain flavors
Arguably, the aromatic bouquet is the main selling point of Cake Mints weed. Its effect profile is a treat, but the smells of a burning blunt are what make this cultivar so sought-after.
As they mature, colas of the Cake Mints strain emanate citrus scents. Once they fully ripen, their perfume resembles freshly picked, juicy oranges.
Curing brings out muskier and spicier undertones. An earthy base underpins the fruity scents. Connoisseurs can already detect faint cinnamon notes topping this profile.
The sense banquet continues upon combustion. The smoke burns light and creamy, making you feel like you’re sipping on a rich rum-and-orange Christmas drink.
The flavor is much lighter than the fragrance of Cake Mints weed. Mint tones hit your taste buds, and vague sweetness lingers as an aftertaste.
Cake Mints strain grow information
Growing the Cake Mints strain at home is a walk in the park. Their indica genome makes crops short and sturdy, requiring very little space and TLC to thrive in most environments.
Most climates work if you choose the great outdoors as your grow room. Be sure to protect your plants from the elements, and you’re good to go. Pick a sunny spot and sow seeds in organic soil for best results.
Trim away at the foliage to maintain crop health. The minty leaves of Cake Mints weed get quite dense, not allowing a lot of air through without a helping scissor-holding hand.
Indoor cultivators see their marijuana plants thrive in the Sea of Green. Temperatures around 70°F, low relative humidity, and strong grow lamps encourage bud site development.
Since we haven’t grown Cake Mints weed ourselves, we can’t give exact yield data. Based on its Wedding Cake parent, we can assume a flowering time of around nine weeks. Its yield potential is up to 21 ounces per square meter indoors and per crop outdoors.
Cake Mints strain genetics
The Cake Mints strain is an indica-dominant cross of Animal Mints and Wedding Cake. Both of its parents are surprisingly potent for their mellow flavors, bringing a psychoactive punch in a luscious blunt.
The offspring strain carries these tendencies forward. This indica cultivar carries a dash of sativa and drips in THC. You get the best of both worlds as you wind down for the day.
In short, here’s how we got this refreshing delight:
