Yearning for those careless beach days sipping piña coladas by the shore? The Papaya Cake strain could be just the cure to your burning thirst for a quiet sense of relief. With a bloodline imparted from the popular Wedding Cake strain, this bud will bring you to a calm couch, food in one hand, and a sleepy head in another. Read on for the skinny on the Papaya Cake strain
What is the Papaya Cake Strain?
You should have heard about Papaya Cake by now; it is a hype that does not end at its luscious profile. As an indica-dominant hybrid with potent levels of THC averaging 21-30%, its indica-sativa ratio is at 80-20 as it hits you with a spell of drowsiness. The cross between the classic Papaya and Wedding Cake soars high in flavor due to its sweet tropical roots and the effects department. Its fame in pain management is not to be taken lightly. With a CBD level of around 1%, it is one you will reach for.
Papaya Cake Strain Profile
The bud is cool and calm with its mint green and light green combo, and thin bright orange hairs sticking out as well as its prominent frozen crystal-like trichomes peppered throughout its bud. It is not too dense that you cannot grind it, so enjoy your experience as you chill in a comfy chair. All of this is only compounded by its buds that have long fluffy grape-shaped, minty green nugs with thin light orange hairs and frosty white trichomes. The beautiful flowers are just right and pack quite a punch.
Scent & Flavor
Papaya cake’s aroma will bring you back to that afternoon under the shades of a palm tree with its tropical vibe. Sour lemon and fresh papaya mixed in with a floral gassy spice will remind you of some sweet papaya cake even if you haven’t had a slice of the desert before. It will elevate your mood with its fragrance that will hit your nose like a soft, vanilla-scented feather. Let it charm you to sleep.
If you like the high-powered effects of indica-leaning strains you will love the novelty of the saccharine side of Papaya Cake in your throat. The tropical papaya will flavor your mouth with a beach-reminiscent feel while you grind it seamlessly in your hand. Notes of skunk and cantaloupe melon will come up in some puffs but you will find it a welcome surprise as it adds some spiciness to the mix. Your head will also be filled with its citrus flavors, sprinkles of mango and banana reaching the top of your head.
Inhale Papaya Cake to truly feel that deep-seated, good relaxation. It will be just like the last vacation you took, sunbathing under the sun’s rays but this time in the comfort of your home. Its most common terpenes are myrcene, phellandrene, nerolidol, linalool, and limonene— the components of a truly soothing but equally uplifting smoking session.
The euphoria often lasts long as you savor each slice of this confection. Tingles will dance all along your body as you enter that high. All your pains will leave for you for the time you are embraced by this tropical daydream, its sedative qualities blocking the sun now, making you drowsy and restful.
What are the Medicinal Effects of Papaya Cake Strain?
The dominant terpene in the Papaya Cake strain is Limonene. This woodsy and fruity aroma is also what brings you all that stress relief and an uplifted mood, sought after by medical marijuana patients with anxiety, PTSD, and chronic stress.
On the other hand, if you have medical conditions like nausea and appetite loss, this yummy taste of heaven will make you like food again, calming your nerves and increasing your need to eat. There’s something here for everyone with Papaya Cake strain, even insomniacs love its sweet lullaby too.
Growing the Papaya Cake Strain
Beginners are usually dissuaded by the cost of its seeds and the challenge to grow Papaya Cake but, if you do have some spark to grow it, this bud will bloom in 53 to 59 days. You will need to trim it from time to time though as it can grow upwards of 40 inches. Even if you can grow it indoors and outdoors, its height alone will mean the outside environment can be a lot more conducive to the plant.
Oni has not made too much information on the plant available, but does expect 10-15 ounces of product for each plant outside and 1-2 ounces per square foot inside. If you take a whack at it, you could enjoy its tropical heaven.
