Romulan may share its name with the famous alien race from Star Trek, but this strain is most beloved for its powerful indica dominant effects and exceptional therapeutic properties. Romulan
produces an incredibly deep, relaxing total body high that will leave each user in a sedated, yet blissfully peaceful state of rest. While its genetic characteristics rely heavily on its indica dominant parents, Romulan will also produce a touch of euphoric stimulation that will last for hours on end. These deeply sedating effects make Romulan the perfect strain to treat conditions such as chronic pain due to inflammation, nerve damage, or muscular spasms, in addition to depression and lack of appetite.nThis strain’s high starts relatively quickly, taking hold primarily in the head. Users may find their thoughts to be more fast-paced or intense, and may perceive their surroundings more acutely. In the right set and setting, this change in thinking is accompanied by feelings of giddiness or euphoria. Less than an hour into the high, Wedding Cake’s indica side kicks in. Smokers might feel increased warmth and a pleasant heaviness that spreads through the spine and limbs. Even in the midst of this sedation, though, cerebral stimulation continues, allowing users to feel uniquely “tuned in” to their surroundings. This holistic combination of mental and physical effects lends itself to complex activities like creating art, exercising, and even sex. As the high progresses, so does this strain’s body high — after a few bowls, smokers may find themselves couchlocked.
nWedding Cake may also be of use to medical cannabis patients. Its tendency to bring about feelings of perceptiveness can aid those with mild to moderate stress, anxiety, and depression, helping them feel more “in the moment.” Because this strain leaves users lucid and levelheaded, it can also help those with attention deficit disorders to focus on specific tasks. Wedding Cake’s gradual waves of physical relaxation can soothe both temporary and chronic aches and pains and, in high enough doses, can bring about relief for insomnia. Finally, it can be a potent appetite stimulant for those who have lost their hunger to disease, medication, or chemotherapy.
nWhether it’s billed as Wedding Cake or Pink Cookies, seeds of this strain do not seem to be available for commercial sale. Prospective growers will need to obtain cuttings from mature plants in order to grow genetically identical “clones.” It is said to be a temperamental plant, and not the best choice for novice growers. Detailed information on Wedding Cake’s cultivation is not readily available, but, like many hybrids, it can be grown in controlled indoor conditions or outdoors in warm, humid climates with average temperatures in the 70-degree Fahrenheit range. We also know that parent strain Cherry Pie is particularly mold resistant, a characteristic that may carry over to some phenotypes of this strain. Wedding Cake offers growers a moderate yield for their efforts.
