Birthday Cake, sometimes referred to as Birthday Cake Kush or Wedding Cake, is an indica-dominant hybrid with surprisingly well-balanced effects. Its parent strains, Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie, lend to its sweet-ish, slightly fruity flavor profile and its euphoric and uplifting yet relaxing effects.
The strain has a THC content that ranges from 20% to 24%, and its potent high kicks off with a happy, uplifted euphoria. An excellent mood booster, Birthday Cake is great for calming the mind with its cerebral high. After a few bowls, it typically produces deep sedation and intense couch-lock.
Medical patients and recreational smokers alike adore this strain for its delicious buttery-sweet flavor profile and profoundly relaxing effects. If you’re looking for a good laugh with good friends, this dessert-like strain is an excellent way to wind down at the end of the day.

An interesting yet delicious combo of buttery, slightly sweet vanilla and tangy, fruity notes.
A THC-heavy cross between the indica-dominant Cherry Pie strain and the indica-leaning Girl Scout Cookies strain, Birthday Cake manages to balance the cerebral and physical effects of its parent cultivars.
Given its Durban Poison lineage, the high kicks off with a generous cerebral buzz that feels happy, euphoric, and creative. But like its parents, the strain leans indica, which means its initial stimulating effect ultimately gives way to deep relaxation, pain relief, sedation, and for most users, intense couch-lock.
