Strawberry Shortcake is an indica marijuana strain made by crossing White Wookie with The White. This strain provides euphoric effects that put your mind into a state of bliss. Strawberry Shortcake features a strong and hearty strawberry flavor that will have you craving more. This strain is ideal for night time use or during an evening when you have nothing of importance to do. Medical marijuana patients choose Strawberry Shortcake to help relieve symptoms associated with insomnia.
If the past couple of months have taught me to appreciate anything, it’s the power of food: maneuvering crowded grocery stores with empty shelves, discovering our dependency on restaurants (and how much time and money we spent going out to eat), realizing how lost we feel and how much we care when one of our favorite kitchens closes for good. Food has also brought my household closer during a pandemic, as dinner is currently the highlight of the day.
Pray that we don’t spend all summer at home, but if we do, I’ll be attempting to make strawberry shortcake. The simple, classic mixture of biscuits, strawberries and cream is perfect for moving past barbecue on a summer night. And to get a jump on it, at the start of spring I tested Strawberry Shortcake, to see if it’d be a worthwhile addition to my summer lineup. There’s something special about a toke in the back yard after dinner, as the sun sets and your tastebuds are craving something sweet. And while I expected nothing more than a syrupy smoke and pillowy-soft effects that lulled my happy ass to sleep, that’s not a small ask.
Strawberry Shortcake is a rare strain nationwide but has a strong Colorado connection: It was born as a result of collaborative breeding between Cannarado and the Los Angeles-based Jungle Boys. The two renowned growers crossed the White, a popular strain for THC potency but not necessarily flavor, with White Wookie, a lesser-known mix of White 91 (the White and Chemdog 91) and Girl Scout Cookies. If someone had told me that Cookies and Chemdog influences were given such a blank canvas, I’d have expected a gassier version of Girl Scout Cookies. Instead, Strawberry Shortcake flicks my nose with a fruity blast up front, surprising my nostrils before thick notes of sourdough and gas fumes kick in the door. (I unwittingly opened my jar of weed over my heating vent, which I will recommend that everyone with floor heating do from now on.)
This strain causes some serious mouthwatering. Strawberry Shortcake was developed by mixing a special J3 cut from a strain called “Juliet”, together with Strawberry Diesel, a strain that exudes really sweet and strawberry aromas. The THC-level of Strawberry Shortcake can reach up to 22%, making this variety a potent beast that induces uplifting, energetic, and cerebral effects.
When Strawberry Shortcake is placed in a grow tent, it requires 65–72 days to reach full maturity. This sativa-dominant strain develops plenty of resin, which is highly desired by hash and concentrate makers. The yields are significant— so much so that growers need to use some string support to keep the plants intact.
Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 75% Sativa / 25% Indica
THC: 18% – 23%
Strawberry Shortcake is a sativa dominant hybrid strain (75% sativa/25% indica) created through a cross of the classic Juliet X Strawberry Diesel strains. Perfect for any lover of a delicious berry flavor, Strawberry Shortcake packs a combination of sweet fruity strawberries and spicy earth into each and every mouthwatering little toke. The aroma follows the same profile, although with a pungent diesel overtone that turns heavy and sour as the nugs are broken apart and burned. The Strawberry Shortcake high is just as delicious as the flavor, with uplifting and sociable effects that are perfect for getting you involved in and carrying on conversations with anyone and everyone around you with ease. You’ll feel happy with a touch of creativity and motivation alongside an increase in focus, all of which are perfect for carrying on constructive conversations or playful arguments with friends and family alike. With these effects and its high 18-23% average THC level, Strawberry Shortcake is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as chronic stress, ADD or ADHD, depression, mood swings and chronic fatigue. This bud has small piecey popcorn-shaped minty green nugs with thick orange hairs and a coating of frosty tiny white crystal trichomes.
