8 weed strains that taste like dessert
Who doesn’t want a smoking experience that is as sweet and savory as a dessert?
Anyone who rolls up regularly knows that cannabis is all about taste. That is why people hunt exotic varieties. There are thousands of different terpene profiles that will allow your cannabis flowers and swabs to taste in different ways. When narrowing it down for this list, we went for a mix of sweet, fruity, sugary, and candy-like flavors that are perfect for your next post-dinner smoke.
Here are eight delicious weeds that taste like dessert.
Ice cream cake
Gelato # 33, also known as Larry Bird, is for me the well-known child of Gelato # 33 and Wedding Cake and the dessert stain of all dessert tribes. Bow down when you say his name, assumed? So treat yourself to an ice cream cake. In particular, indulge in an ice cream cake PAX era pod or ice cream cake hash brown, as the taste is so sweet, gaseous, and sugary that the oils taste just like smoking a bowl of milk dessert.
The last time I bought it on my way to the door at the Portland Archives, Natalie, the budtender, told me to enjoy my dessert. And I did. I enjoyed my dessert.
First of all, the Zkittlez flower is absolutely beautiful. The purple and green accents make the plant look exotic. Second, the taste is out of this world no matter how you consume it – flowers, vapes, whatever, Zkittlez hits.
Zkittlez is a cross of grapefruit and grape that tastes just like its misspelled namesake. It’s a type of candy that tastes like the full spectrum of fruity terpenes in cannabis. It’s relaxing too, but not overwhelming, which makes Zkittlez a perfect treat for consumers of all levels. And it’s usually available from a wide variety of growers. So if you want to try it out, it probably has a store nearby.
If you want sweet blueberry flavors, grab a bowl of blueberry cheesecake. Blueberry Cheesecake, as the name suggests, is likely a cross of the old-school Blueberry variety with the old-school Cheese variety. It can also be a cross between blueberries and white cheese. Either way, it’s a delicious strain that will remind you of your overpriced fourth meal from the cheesecake factory.
Blueberry Cheesecake is a colorful flower with a sweet, funky blueberry aroma that is great for people looking for flavor over intensity. It has a quick onset time followed by a creative high that can help you slow down and be more focused. Some call it a social high, but it’s up to you to try it out.
Biscotti is an indica-dominant cross of GSC, Gelato # 25, and South Florida OG that tastes like the Italian dessert after dinner. It has a wild mix of sweet, nutty, gaseous herbal flavors that give way to a powerfully soothing high. Outside of Italy, biscottis are usually served with coffee, which is fun as you may need a cup or two to wake up after the whipping.
Cherry Pie flower is fire. Point blank point. It’s a strain that will leave you dumb after just a few hits, and if you’re looking for something to vape, ooohweeeee – this one is yummy.
The Cookie Fam is known for producing stains that are tasteful blends of fruity and gaseous terpenes. Cherry pie is no different. It’s a cross of Granddaddy Purple and Durban Poison that creates a super loud aroma of sweet, sugary cherries with gaseous undertones. The high? Just take a seat on the couch and the remote control. You will be there for a while.
Read the Orange Creamsicle name and you will already know what to expect. Creamy, vanilla and citrus flavors that will remind you of that little popsicle you can buy at 7-Eleven for a few dollars – or the local ice cream van.
Orange Creamsicle is a loud, undeniably fruity strain bred from Orange Crush and Juicy Fruit. In terms of experience, it brings out those orange colored terps to create a euphoric, uplifting high that you would expect from strains with this type of bright flavor profile.
Adhesive tape is a cross between original glue (Gorilla glue No. 4) and Do-Si-Dos, which screams these GG4 properties without drowning out these Do-Si-Dos properties.
The reason Duct Tape is here is because, like GG4, it has a complex nutty, funky, gaseous aroma and, for some reason, a slightly chocolaty taste too. Additionally, the cross with the heavy Do-Si-Dos produces a powerful high that will put you down.
It’s one of those full body rides, the definition of relaxation.
Wedding cake is a phenotype of Triangle Mints. Triangle Mints is a cross between Animal Mints and Triangle Kush. I guarantee you can find wedding cakes nearby, the popularity of which is increasing year by year.
As for the cake-like aroma, Wedding Cake can be hit in a number of different ways depending on which company grew it, how it was grown, whose genetics they have, etc. However, Wedding Cake usually has this cozy, slightly sweet aroma when it comes to being doughy and vanilla. The following experience is usually a balanced hybrid high that can be extremely powerful and clear before turning into a full body stone.
