What is Jungle Cake Strain?
The Jungle Cake strain is a balanced hybrid marijuana strain. The ratio of Indica and Sativa of this strain is 50/50, so it’s neither an Indica nor Sativa strain. The strain is famous for its heavy high and long-lasting effects. The THC content of this potent strain is insanely high and can average from 20% to 27%.
You can expect a sweet flavor of berries, marshmallows, and a hint of nuts as you smoke it. The smell is similar to its taste and has a more pungent, spicy, and earthy overtone.
Jungle Cake strain is an excellent choice for enjoying your afternoon or evening. Those of you looking for a unique strain with impressive effects should consider trying this strain.
Background and Lineage
Seed Junky Genetics first introduced the Jungle Cake strain. It was a cross between White Fire #43 (a phenotype of White Fire OG, also known as WiFi OG) and Wedding Cake (Cherry Pie x Girl Scout Cookies) strains.
Usually, strains named after baked goods don’t disappoint, and when it is a creation of Seed Junky Genetics, you can bet that they’ll exceed your expectations.
Jungle Cake got its name from its parent strain, White Fire, a cross between White Rhino (hence, jungle) and Fire OG. The effects and features of this hybrid strain are very similar to that of Wedding Cake, with a more upbeat Sativa feel but much more substantial. It has a musky kush aroma that blends nicely with the creamy sweetness of the Wedding Cake parent.
Types of High
A heavy hitter with tons of THC, the Jungle Cake strain is a bit intense for people sensitive to THC. Its high builds slowly, but kicks in after a few tokes. It will lift your mental state into pure euphoria and ease. You will be blissfully happy and utterly unfocused in this state, with the tendency to giggle at times.
While the cerebral effect of this strain is uplifting and energetic, it also provides a heavy physical feeling of relaxation. You will find that as your mind expands to new heights, your body settles into a state of pure relaxation and ease. You won’t feel sedated or couch-locked, which is why you can have this strain just about any time of the day.
Jungle Cake strain is popular among medical marijuana users for its array of effects, as it can alleviate both mental and physical ailments.
Its uplifting and energizing cerebral effects can relieve depression, anxiety, mood swings, chronic stress, and PTSD. If you struggle with anxiety or depression or need to clear your mind after a long hard day, you will find this strain helpful.
Jungle Cake’s intense body highs are also beneficial to those who struggle with body pains, inflammation, and muscle cramps.
If you are suffering from appetite loss, it can help you regain it. Jungle Cake strain is known for causing appetite. End of the high, you will be devouring everything within your reach. It is also helpful for patients suffering from eating disorders, appetite loss, or side effects from chemotherapy and certain medications.
The therapeutic potential of this strain is also quite promising. People suffering from nausea, insomnia, and other sleep disorders may benefit from the Jungle Cake strain.
Always consult your doctor before taking marijuana for any medicinal benefits to avoid any long-term health consequences.
Besides the potential for couch lock and munchies, there are some adverse effects that you should be aware of, as the high of Jungle Cake strain tends to be pretty long-lasting.
It is common to experience anxiety or paranoia when using marijuana strains high in THC. Jungle Cake is no exception. If you are a new user or sensitive to THC, you will want to start slowly. As long as you consume it in moderation, this shouldn’t be a problem.
Cottonmouth and dry eyes are also fairly common. These are easily manageable with a bit of planning and preparation. Drink plenty of fluid before, during, and after consumption to keep yourself hydrated. Eye drops from your local pharmacy or drugstore can help you with dry or red eyes.
It is essential to know that the side effects of marijuana can vary between people. If you are taking any cannabis strain for the first time, take it in a smaller dose and only increase the dosage if it seems appropriate. You should always know your limit and stick to it at all times.
Growing Jungle Cake Strain
Jungle Cake strain is best suited for experienced growers or those seeking a challenge since it’s pretty demanding. But if you decide to take the challenge, it is sure to reward you!
The seeds from Seed Junky Genetics are scarce. When it comes to online presences, the team keeps a very low profile. According to reports, Jungle Cake seeds were never available to the public, so your best bet will be to collect a clone from somebody who has already grown the strain.
As a balanced hybrid, the Jungle Cake strain grows tall and wide. The plants require regular training and trimming from the early stages for successful flower production. The plants also require plenty of growing space and airflow, as they are pretty susceptible to mold and powdery mildew if you do not control the humidity levels closely. Additionally, this strain requires careful monitoring of its nutrient levels.
Growing indoors allows you to control the environment completely, including temperature, light, CO2 levels, and humidity, without worrying about the weather.
It takes about nine 60 to 70 days for Slurricane plants to flower when grown indoors, and you can expect a yield of 16 ounces per square meter.
Jungle Cake plants thrive in warm, sunny, dry weather and are ready for harvest around mid-October. Outdoor growers can expect a yield of approximately 16 ounces from each plant.
