I'll be the Judge of That: Wedding Cake

Peace ya'll, it's Judge back with another review. Let me thank you all for popping in and burning with me, it's been fun thus far! This week, we've got Wedding Cake aka Pink Cookies (Girl Scout Cookies x Cherry Pie).Time to strap on ya helmets, this one's a bit of a rocky ride, let's dive on in, shall we?

Her bag appeal is, to be honest, a bit lacking. Visually, she's pretty beat up. Either she was trimmed by machine or her trimmer was heavy handed. It's a shame, really, because she smells amazing; OG notes abound, there are strong floral scents as well, with a dominant vanilla kick to the nose. After cracking open a bud, a nice earthy scent came into play. Her bud feel is moderate, a tad on the crunchy side, with little bounce back when squeezed.

I did find a couple under developed seeds, which would normally knock her down a bit (and still technically does), as she didn't have 100% of her energy spent on trichome development. Whether it was a late stage light leak, or some other form of stress, I don't know, but it was definitely late in the game because her trich clusters on the interior are pretty insane, as you can see. This strain is known for hitting 25% THC or more, and I feel, if she wasn't stressed to hermie, they would have hit those numbers easily.

At the macro level, you can see just how stacked these trichs are! Resin tacos everywhere! I truly feel like whoever trimmed this, whether man or machine, ruined what could have been an amazing sight. I was not expecting to see such an abundance of heads where the outside was a wasteland of decapitated stalks. Tons of resin on the fingers. Let's take her for a ride!

She has a soothing vanilla taste, sugar cookies and ginger on the front end. There are hints of cake batter and earthy notes, but the vanilla keeps rearing her head at the finish. Her caryophyllene levels give her a nice spicy kick, while also helping with anxiety and inflammation.  For an indica dominant strain, she is very easy at the onset; a bit of pressure behind the eyes, but a focused, clear headed cerebral experience. She is very up beat at first, which aligns with her mostly clear trichome heads. That said, she doesn't fight fair. Her potency doesn't show itself all at once and if you smoke of her heavily, she creeps up on you in steady, heady waves. She is a great pain reliever and tends to bring on the giggles, with a relaxing finish that will leave you ready for some munchies and a movie. I would not recommend her for mid day sessions, unless you are okay with moving at a sloth like pace.

I was not impressed by her upon first glance, and she had a couple seeds, which unfortunately bring my score down. Still, I hope to see the next crop, every grow is a learning experience and they still did a solid job . As a whole, I would say this is a strain certainly deserving of the hype, since even without reaching peak plant potential, she packed a punch. As always, your mileage may vary, but I give her a 3 out of 5 blunts.
