Papaya Cake Marijuana Strain
Indica Dominant Hybrid
Papaya Cake is an indica dominant hybrid strain (80% indica/20% sativa) created through crossing the classic Papaya Cake X Wedding Cake strains. The perfect bud for any indica lover who wants a great taste with their toke, Papaya Cake brings on high-powered effects with a taste that will leave your head spinning. The flavor is exactly like the name suggests, with a sweet tropical Papaya Cake taste accented by sweet cake and sour lemons. The aroma follows the same profile, with a sweet sugary cake overtone that’s accented by touches of sour lemon and fresh tropical Papaya Cake, too. The Papaya Cake high is just as delicious, with relaxing and soothing effects that will have you kicked back and pain-free in no time at all. You’ll feel a lightly lifted onset settle in a few minutes after your first toke, helping lift your mind into a happy state that’s free of any stresses or racing thoughts. A lightly tingly body high accompanies this cerebral lift, keeping your physical form anchored to the world below and pretty sedated at times. Combine these effects with its super high 25-30% average THC level and you have the perfect recipe for treating chronic stress or anxiety, PTSD, appetite loss or nausea and insomnia. This bud has long fluffy grape-shaped minty green nugs with thin light orange hairs and frosty chunky white trichomes.
Named after the sweet, creamy, tropical fruit, the Papaya Cake cannabis strain is a dreamy, flavor-packed herb that delivers perfectly proportioned effects. Despite being a pure indica, this cultivar behaves more like a hybrid, bringing on the benefits of both indica and sativa genetics. Altogether, the strain relaxes and energizes, helping you enjoy the best of both worlds in one lip-smacking smoke.
But of course, the indica pedigree does shine through, with the experience ultimately ending in a dreamlike state that weighs heavily on the eyelids and cradles you off into an uninterrupted slumber. So if you’re hoping to relax, unwind, and laugh a little before bed, the a bowlful of Papaya Cake might serve as your nightcap staple.
The Papaya Cake plant looks like a true-blue indica at a glance. The short, stubby growth demonstrates dense, clustered leaves that are packed together. With a bush that’s short in stature, the nugs of the plant follow suit and showcase pretty much the same dense, tightly packed clusters. The globular nugs are small compared to other strains, but what they lack in size, they make up for with color.
Brandishing the colors of every tropical fruit known to man, this work of art just oozes with bag appeal right off the get go. The nugs – mostly avocado green in color – are seasoned with delicate mists of pink, purple, orange, and yellow. These different hues are hardly mixed together, so you can actually map out where the blotches borders are. That said, the dalmatian aesthetic can be totally eye-popping, making for a truly psychedelic appearance that adds to bag appeal.
And as you might have guessed, anyone who goes as far as inspecting the nugs up close is destined to crack open the jar. Twist off the lid and stick your snout into the container, and you’re greeted with the wafting aroma of, well, Papaya Cake. The sweet, creamy, tropical fruit smell is gentle at best, and may need a well-trained snout to be fully appreciated. Nonetheless, the little hints the herb lets out can be more than enough to get you chasing after the scent.
Grind that baby up and the broken up leaves let out even more of their coveted aroma. But as you stuff the herb into a bowl and light her up, her flavor tweaks ever so slightly in the form of smoke. Unlike the sweet pure Papaya Cake aroma, the smoke itself takes on a doughy, creamy, almost pastry-like flavor that fills your mouth with the sweet confection of a seasoned baker.
The smoke – smooth yet slightly rough around the edges – scrapes the throat every so slightly, causing a bit of a coughing fit in less experienced marijuana users. For veterans however, the smoke can be just the perfect texture that offers enough abrasion without fully skinning the inside of your throat. And as you clear the sticky film left behind by the plumes as they pass through your windpipe, you should taste a hint of berry and mango.
The cannabinoids get started on the mind and haze away the worries and apprehensions that might make comfort out of reach. Relaxation soon migrates towards the limbs, lightening the load to give you that air of energy that can see you through your daily routine – albeit at a slow controlled pace. Towards the end of the effects, the mild sativa buzz wanes away to pave the way for full on indica effects. The eyelids become heavy, breathing slows, and you’re ultimately swaddled off into a deep, sweet sleep.
