The Captain's Cake strain is a hybrid (50% Indica / 50% Sativa) created by crossing the infamous LA Cake (delicious flavor and extremely potent high) and Goji Cake (amazing tropical fragrance) strains. Being a child of two powerful strains, the Captain's Cake weed contains only two terpenes known as myrcene and terpinolene. They give the marijuana its sweet grape taste with honey-like hints and cheese aftertaste. The Captain's Cake cannabis bud produces a potent high that first makes smokers feel uplifted and concentrated before putting them into a highly sedative state and total happiness. In combination with its potent effects and medium THC level that amounts to 10 - 12.5%, the Captain's Cake weed is suitable for new and moderate consumers.

Alongside THC, there are other cannabinoids in the strain that create the complete compositions. These include:

  • CBD 0.05 - 0.25%
  • CBC 0.41 - 0.7%
  • CBG 0.44 - 1.2%
  • CBN 0.09 - 0.18%
  • THCV 0.28 - 0.79%

Captain's Cake Strain Fragrance

With only two terpenes, the taste profile of the Captain's Cake strain is not so varied. However, myrcene, as one of the terpenes in the weed, is responsible for its sweet grape-like taste that is usually similar to the honey aftertaste. Terpinolene is the main terpene that gives the Captain's Cake marijuana cheese and pear undertones smokers will notice on the exhale.

I felt more focused as soon as I took a hit through the bong! Helped me get some work done before I started feeling a little sedated and wanted to get in bed. Good one.

without a huge tolerace to thc, it is not easy to find joints that can help me with my fatigue but I was lucky to find some Captain'S Cake. It does the trick while tasting very nice at the same time.

I wasn't expecting too much from this kush because of the low thc but I ended up liking it. It has very sweet and fruty flavors and makes me calm down after a long day without locking me to the couch.
