- The high this bud offers is gently psychedelic and may be emotionally balancing.
Some noted budsmen I know say that’s all wrong though, and that Wedding Cake isn’t Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie (a strain sometimes called Pink Cookies) but a combination of Triangle Kush and Animal Mints. For what it’s worth, I obtained some Cherry Pie too, to see what’s up. It did echo Wedding Cake — a high that comes on fast and pleasant and a little trippy and sticks around, and has a kind of cheap-sherbet-from-the-grocery-store-that’s-in-those-big-tubs taste.
A friend of mine swears by Wedding Cake, saying it helped them weather a recent shift from one depression medication to another amid the always-tender jump from summer into fall into winter (and these days, the emotionally devastating back-and-forths among the three because of global warming). Plain and simple, it made them feel happy, which is rare for this person, but more than that — stable, sturdy. Meanwhile, the “professional” medications coursing through their body added chaos and confusion, so mental and physical well-being felt up in the air, all on the whims of some doctors trying some shit out to see what works. This is not to say medicine of the Big Pharma-pimped, heavily-researched-and-put-into-a-pill sort is bad, just that, well, it sometimes feels like it’s not enough. Wedding Cake sustained them and offered guidance through some rough patches and put a rare smile on their face. I can really only imagine.
