Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake is an indica-dominant hybrid created by cross-breeding The White and White Wookie strains.

Strawberry Shortcake emerged out of Colorado, but the detailed history of the strain is unknown. Multiple cultivators have been credited for creating Strawberry Shortcake, such as Cannarado Genetics and The Jungle Boys.

The indica-sativa ratio of Strawberry Shortcake is not entirely known. Still, it has all the characteristics of a strong indica instead of a sativa-dominant hybrid strain, such as sedation and a feeling of being unable to get up (“couch lock”). This makes Strawberry Shortcake potentially very useful for conditions like insomnia and chronic pain.

Strawberry Shortcake has moderate levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that sit around 20%. The cannabidiol (CBD) levels of Strawberry Shortcake are almost nonexistent at 0.4%, with a higher concentration of cannabigerol (CBG) at 0.8%-1%.

Strawberry Shortcake lives up to its name with a strong and inviting aroma of sweet fruity strawberries. After use, you’ll have no question about how it got its name.
