Birthday Cake AKA Birthday Cake Kush is a potent new strain on the market with a powerful cerebral buzz and deeply relaxing physical effects. It’s a relatively new strain on the market, so figuring out it would probably be a good idea just to dive in to the nitty-gritty of Birthday Cake. With that in mind, I’ve categorized the different parts of the cake in terms of effects: Head Trip, Body Trip, Stomach Trip, Legs Trip, Crown Trip, Face Trip, Eyes Trip, Gums Trip, Fingers & Toes, Crown/Hands, Back, Crown/Wrist and Facial Trip. Hopefully this will help you determine if this could be your cup of tea.
First we’ll discuss the Head Trip. This is the rush of the hairspray hitting your scalp and the syrup hitting your eyes. The Head Trip can last for up to ten minutes. For the record, I’ve only had this happen once when I ate too much salad; I woke up the next morning feeling like I had a bad headache. The good news?
Now let’s move onto the Body Trip. Here you’ll experience all the wonderful side effects of the birthday cake cannabis strain without the smoke! Just smell the sweet, pungent scent of Girl Scout Cookies as they melt in your mouth. This one can actually last for up to 30 minutes, although not all strains and some Girl Scout Cookies are the same.
Next we have the Stomach Trip. On the surface this may seem like a bad thing, but the Stomach Trip is the best part of the birthday cake strain! You will experience all of the amazing sensations of the cannabusiness! From the feeling of burning hot inhaling through to the heavy feeling of burning going down your throat. What also makes this strain so great is the heavy feeling you get in your stomach when exhaling. This causes a deep relaxing effect, which is almost identical to being on cocaine!
One of the most interesting effects of this cannabis strain is that it has been found to help people with chronic pain and insomnia. Chronic pain is commonly associated with menopause, arthritis, and other illnesses. Many of these patients turn to cannabis for help, and there is now extensive clinical research into what birthday cake medical marijuana has been found to do for these types of patients.
The Stomach Trip is usually a really potent version of the birthday cake strain, although it’s a little bit more expensive. It usually has a potent sweet flavor, like walnut or maple. It is very popular amongst patients suffering from chronic pain and insomnia. This particular strain gives the feeling of euphoria like no other. Patients who suffer from chronic pain report an almost instant feeling of relief after consuming this pie.
Of course we cannot forget to mention the all time classic birthday cake strain, the indica. The most popular strain to use on pot brownies and pies is called the indicasativa. This strain is usually mixed with other high-strength marijuana plants for that extra-sweet taste. Like the birthday cake strain it produces an almost instant feeling of euphoria upon consumption. However, it is not always a positive experience as the euphoria can quickly fade when the user starts to feel disoriented.
Like the indica, the hybrid cherry is another strong strain. This strain is usually smoked in thinner wafers rather than being broken up into smaller buds, as is the case with the indicasativa. Like the birthday cake it produces a feeling of euphoria, almost immediately upon lighting up. Like the the percentage of the flower, the potent is very similar to THC percentage.
