About Papaya Cake
This Indica-heavy hybrid (80/20) is a delicious cake-scented cross of Wedding Cake and Papaya. As a result, it has both the doughy nuttiness and the sour lemon terpenes to have your tongue firing on all cylinders. At the same time, the strain is soothing and stress-free, imbuing your body with a strong tingle throughout. The anchoring effect increases your mind-body connection, which is why yogis like this strain. Anyone who loves papaya and/or yoga should put themselves on the waiting list for this one.
At times, Papaya Cake can give you a sense of sedation, but that’s not what it’s mainly about. The high starts as a light tingle, almost like your head is spinning, and you’ll feel cerebral pressure as it lifts you up. This feeling will help you feel grounded to the earth, which is why the strain pairs well with yoga, reading, massages, and other relaxing, worldly activities.
Oni Seed Co. bred this strain to give nighttime users something powerful and frosty. The munchies are huge on this strain, making you seek out the food equivalent of this dessert-like pineapple monstrosity. Assuming you can’t whip up a Pineapple Cake on command, you may need to plan ahead!
The unique terpene profile of this strain includes the lesser-known phellandrene, which gives the strain a taste of citrus and wood. Nerolidol is another unique one, which has the taste of apple and rose and can help users treat information. Finally, the spicy terpene called linalool imbues a floral scent and a sense of relaxation.
This makes Papaya Cake great for users who suffer from anxiety, stress, and PTSD symptoms. The hunger-inducing effects can help with appetite loss and nausea. Those who practice yoga or who suffer from chronic health conditions may be familiar with the term, homeostasis, which refers to keeping bodily functions at a functional equilibrium. It’s just a fancy way of saying it helps you stay in balance - Papaya Cake can help you stay there.
The nugs of the Papaya Cake strain grow in elongated, fluffy shapes. They’re colored light green, like mint, with wispy amber hairs and fat, white crystal trichomes. As an analgesic (aka, a pain-reliever), Papaya Cake is a physically enervating strain that makes you hungry, happy, and sleepy. Some users report dizziness and rapid heartbeat. However, the sweet and sour taste of citrus, apple, cake, and tropical fruit should make it more than worth it. The THC levels, which can test as high as 30% (!), are the real showstopper.
