This 70/30 indica dominant hybrid was developed by a three-way cross between the Chronic, White Widow, and Cheese strains. It has garnered a number of followers due to its flavor profile that tastes as good as it sounds. With an average THC count of up to 22%, this strain is highly potent.
Flavor and Effects of Strawberry Cake
This strain is as sweet as its name. It has a flavor profile that is likened to that of a strawberry cake. You can also taste hints of pungent cheese in its flavor, which is, of course, from one of its parents, the Cheese strain. This balances out the entire flavor profile for the strain.
Despite its sweet name, the Strawberry Cake is actually quite potent. It can deliver a strong cerebral euphoria that starts with an increase in mental acuity. You will start to feel motivated to do errands, finish any mundane tasks that you’ve been putting off for so long, or join a rambling conversation with friends. Once the indica side takes effect, you will start to feel physiological relief. You will feel calm, relaxed, and mellowed out. With a solid 1% CBD count, that means your high will most likely end into a deep and full-body stone that can last for hours.
What are the Medicinal Benefits of Strawberry Cake

Insomniacs also prefer to smoke this bud in order to smooth down into a deep and relaxing sleep. Its cerebral effects also make the Strawberry Cake an efficient strain in managing anxiety and stress.
Negative Effects of Strawberry Cake

Growing Strawberry Cake
The Strawberry Cake plant is a very undemanding strain to grow. It is a favorite not only because of its delicious flavor, but because it can be cultivated rather easily and quickly. It grows in indoor and outdoor settings. When cultivated outdoors, it requires a Mediterranean-like climate. It can manage warmth and sunshine but cannot necessarily withstand dryness. The plants tend to have a height range of between 1.3m when grown outdoors. This means regular topping should be made so its broad leaves will not cover the flowering nodes. When grown indoors, growers would have to manage light cycles in order to produce its maximum yield. In about 8 weeks, you should be able to enjoy up to 500 grams per square meter when growing the plant indoors.
