Starcake Strain Genetics
Starcake was created by breeding Layer Cake (Wedding Cake x GMO Cookies x Skunk) with a reversed Starbud (A USA indica phenotype). The result is a high THC beauty, a fruity, spicy marvel, and a seedbank wishlist favourite waiting to happen!
Fast-growing traits and a high yield are pleasing traits inherited from the Cali connection in the parent strains, while the sweet bakery flavours are twisted with a hint of spice as the genetics blend to create a taste sensation. Also passed down through the herbal family tree here is a euphoric, uplifting high that’s reminiscent of the Girl Scout Cookies strain in the storied heritage of these feminized, tropical seeds.
Starcake Strain Terpene Profile
The two most abundant terpenes found in this Pheno Finder Seeds Starcake cannabis are limonene and caryophyllene, the dominant GSC terpenes. However, the citrus tones of limonene may be as strong as we’d expect, but the peppery caryophyllene content has been turned up to 11 here for an extra little kick of spice on the inhale.
On the exhale, expect that classic Kush aroma which comes from the presence of pinene, while the forest tones of flowers and pines come from the presence of linalool and pinene in the background of the terpene profile, adding more depth to both flavour and scent.
Starcake Strain Effects
A high THC level (reaching up towards 20%) ensures that the effects of this Layer Cake x Starbud strain are fast-acting and long-lasting, but despite the potency, the buzz doesn’t lean toward sedating. Instead, expect a cerebral, uplifting, focused head high, combined with a gentle body relaxation that won’t take your energy away.
A strong choice for a daytime smoke, tasks and chores that may usually feel mundane will be carried out with a smile on your face, while an evening spent chatting with good friends is improved by the mood-lifting, giggling high of this spectacular strain.
Starcake Strain Medical Benefits
Medical marijuana potential is all over the lineage of this cannabis strain, and the genetics pay off, according to reports from smokers. Many speak of a near-instant relief in feelings of short-term stress. The cannabinoid and terpene combination may also be able to alleviate longer-term stress symptoms related to anxiety-related conditions.
Another potential benefit, thanks to the combination of high THC and caryophyllene levels, as well as other terps with folk medicine history, is the possible relief of chronic pain symptoms. Binding to cannabinoid receptors, the ingredients of this strain may support the body’s pain response and lessen the effects of fibromyalgia, migraines, and more.
How to Grow Starcake Strain Seeds
Dank, dense, and sweet-smelling, the buds don’t have the best resin production we’ve seen, but we forgive that for just how good these dark, purple-hued, heart-shaped buds look! An indoor flowering period of as little as eight weeks from germination results in a high yield of impressively thick and heavy nugs for such fast buds. You don’t have to be a seasoned seedsman, these plants respond well to both SOG and SCROG growing methods.
Outdoor growers with a bit of practice growing cannabis seeds should be delighted here, with minimal effort outside of occasional checks for mould and mildew. It should be added, however, that these Starcake feminised seeds (autoflowering and regular seeds not yet available) like the warm, so outside of more arid climates, consider these to be greenhouse seeds to ensure the big yield of beautiful looking, gorgeous smelling, great tasting buds!
