Cake Bomb takes pure unadulterated toking pleasure to the next level. This rare cultivar boasts a sweet, confectionery-like fruity aroma with a subtle fuel funkiness. The kerosene quality in its terpene profile comes from its OG lineage, whereas its explosive THC potency of around 28% to 30% is from its mother cultivar, Do-Si-Dos. The perfect blend of these traits makes over-indulging very tempting, so be careful not to overdo it.
Cake Bomb hits fast and hard with a euphoric cerebral rush that fades into an intense, in-your-face high a few moments later. As the mind soars into stimulating bliss, a warming buzz cascades down through the body, spreading into the limbs and relaxing tokers from head to toe. These ef-fects make it an excellent bud for after-work or nighttime unwinding. It’s also said to have great medicinal potential, and has been used to relieve stress, chronic pain and insomnia.
Marijuana enthusiasts with mid-level cultivation skills are encouraged to grow Cake Bomb. These feminized seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co. are guaranteed to sprout female plants 99% of the time. The cultivar provides massive yields yet only requires minimal care. It’s a naturally tall weed, so be ready to train if vertical space is limited or if a discreet growing operation is pre-ferred.
There are many advantages to growing Cake Bomb, especially in feminized form. Its sparse foli-age allows adequate airflow and light penetration, avoiding issues often caused by moisture buildup, such as mold and mildew. With an all-female crop, cultivators don’t need to worry about accidental pollination. This also means a lot less work is required – there’s no need to anx-iously wait for gender pre-flowers or to waste time getting rid of the males.
The most obvious trait Cake Bomb inherited from PCS1 is its towering height. During the flow-ering phase, it can double or triple in length, displaying a leggy structure that’s typical of Sativa-leaning cultivars. The plant’s lankiness makes carrying its huge, heavy colas quite challenging. Growers must install support to prevent branch and stem breakage, giving the plant better chanc-es of reaching full maturity.
Such vigorous vertical growth also means that indoor cultivation requires the use of a large grow tent or an area with ample floor-to-ceiling space. Training techniques that inhibit the plant from stretching uncontrollably may be performed as well. The most common methods are low-stress training, topping with mainlining, and ScrOGging — the last being the most popular trick of the trade. It encourages horizontal growth, creating an even canopy with several bud clusters instead of just one apical cola.
Besides monitoring and controlling its height, it’s vital to plant Cake Bomb in an optimal location if you want to grow it outdoors. It can produce up to 28 ounces per plant in places with a Mediterranean climate, such as California, Southern Europe, Northern Africa and Australia. In the northern hemisphere, harvest rolls in around mid-October.
When grown indoors, Cake Bomb can produce up to 1.63 to 1.96 ounces per square foot. This is a sizeable yield, although not as big as the maximum outdoor production. To achieve the biggest harvest possible, the conditions in the grow room must be carefully regulated throughout the plant’s entire life cycle, and especially during its 8 to 9 weeks of flowering.
The key is to keep the indoor climate similar to a natural outdoor habitat. In the vegetative phase, the temperature should be kept between 70 and 78°F and the RH level should be in the 45 to 55% range. You should then lower these to 68 to 75°F and 35 to 45% come flowering. Ensure that other crucial factors, such as light schedules, nutrition and pH levels, are strictly regulated as well.
Cake Bomb’s flowers glisten with frosty trichomes that look like freshly fallen snow. Besides being a feast for the eyes, the cultivar has a captivatingly sweet fragrance that is both woody and fruity. A subtle fuel undertone acts as a reminder of the plant’s OG heritage. When smoked, the flavor is robust with notes of lemon zest.
Cake Bomb hits hard and fast, delivering an almost instant euphoria that’ll set your mood straight right away. This is followed by an avalanche of creative thoughts and enhanced sensory perception. The blend of these two effects leads to increased cognitive functioning, and it’ll real-ly bring out all the artistic skills you never even knew you had.
There’s a physical side to this one, too. An intensely relaxing feeling will spread to every part of the body, and will eventually lead to a completely immobilizing sense of calm. Non-strenuous activities will still be possible as long as dosage is kept moderate. It’s a great accompaniment to creative pursuits, brainstorming sessions or light pre-bedtime rituals.
As tempting as it may be, beginners should avoid smoking Cake Bomb and should leave it to seasoned enthusiasts instead. Its psychoactive strength can quickly become incapacitating – espe-cially to those with low THC tolerance. It may also cause heightened anxiety and paranoia, be-sides the usual drying sensation in the mouth and eyes. Either way, it’s always best reserved for times when the calendar is completely clear.
Cake Bomb is as rare as hen's teeth, so finding it in dispensaries is almost impossible. If you’d like to experience its remarkable flavor and effects, then cultivating your own batch from femi-nized seeds is an excellent option. An all-female crop means no accidental pollination and a lot less work. There’s no need to germinate twice as many seeds, wait for the gender pre-flowers or separate the males. Most importantly, you stand to achieve up to 1.96 ounces per square foot in-doors, or 28 ounces per plant outside.
