    Birthday Cake helped me with insomnia. A good strain for unwinding before bed or for chill activity. The flavor is gorgeous – its berry, pungent, and a little bit earthy bouquet. The only downside is thirst and outrageous munchies.


    Terrific strain! Relieved my nerve pain and helped me sleep.
