Shark Cake is a balanced hybrid strain, the result of crossing the very potent Zkittlez and Gelato strains. THC levels of 15-17% allow this weed cultivar to be accessible even to beginners, but their rate can sometimes reach a peak power - more than 25% of the content. Consumers can indulge in an exotic mixture though. Humulene gives a powerful aroma of tea and cheese. Pulegone makes Shark Cake marijuana more lemony, citrusy in flavor, while myrcene completes the mix with a lavender scent.
