Birthday Cake, also known as Birthday Cake Kush, is a cannabis strain known for its name and the favorable scent and flavor. It is produced by mixing Cherry pies and Girl Scout Cookies. This weed is a highly Indica hybrid, containing 60% Indica, 40% Sativa and 24%-26% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
This strain of marijuana has a deep green tone with hues of purple and blue. It looks even more beautiful as a thick layer of trichomes covers the buds. It tastes sugary, spicy and sweet with an aromatic smell of vanilla, like a real cake.
The seeds of Birthday Cake are not available commercially so you can take cuttings from other growers and plant them both indoors and outdoors. Since it is a hybrid strain, Birthday Cake grows very well in humid and warm places. However, it has some common side effects like paranoid, anxious, dryness of mouth and eyes, but they are short-lived.
