The Waferz strain by Cannarado Genetics is known by a slew of similar names. These include Nilla Wafer, Nila Wafer, Nilla Wafers, Vanilla Waferz, Vanilla Wafer, and possibly more. The strain that this article is about, however you choose to name it, is the 50/50 hybrid from CG made from a cross between Sundae Driver and Wedding Cake. Its floral, fruity, and herbal tea-like flavors create an overall impression of energizing, yet sleepy happiness. Being on Waferz is a Zen time. The strain may hit users differently, but its low THC and accessible flavors make it perfect for cannabis newbies that want to see what the fuss is all about.
Watch out for a different phenotype that includes Biscotti genetics – we’re talking about the Wedding Cake one, which emits flavors like sweet ice cream mixed with gas. As consumers smoke, they notice an overwhelming overtone of vanilla, with hints of pine, diesel, grapefruit, and other herbal scents. This is a result of the terpene profile in Waferz, which favors limonene, myrcene, caryophyllene, and linalool. The fruit and tea flavors come from the limonene and caryophyllene, which combine into a “citrus spice” inhale. The myrcene and linalool introduce more herby, sweet notes, such as the cloud of vanilla and the relaxing herbal aftertaste of lavender.
Growers report that Waferz is a crop that’s easy to plant and care for, provided you have enough space. The buds grow tall, light, limey green, and are ready for harvest in as early as a brisk 54-63 days. The plant’s calyxes are large and thick with resin, focused on a single elongated flower cola, which makes the most of indoor growing spaces by concentrating bud production.
We recommend both Sea of Green (SOG) and Screen of Green (ScrOG) methods to get the most from your Waferz crop. SOG increases yields and shortens harvest time for growers with limited growing space by planting Waferz plants closer together and keeping them the same height. ScrOG compliments the method through topping, which gives you more lateral branches to harvest.
The effects of the Waferz strain are reported as being stress and depression-relieving, as well as sleep-inducing. The strain simultaneously makes users feel energized and relaxed so depending on your tolerance to its 15% average THC levels, you may experience different outcomes. Dry mouth and eyes are commonly reported side effects.
The spicy-herbal and citrus-vanilla flavors of Waferz promote feelings of calmness and energy at the same time. In some users, this will prompt motivation and in others, the inescapable desire to sleep. As a test strain, which is particularly accessible for novices, Waferz offers plenty of reasons to see which kind of user you’ll end up being.
