Cake Pop Strain Review (Curaleaf)

cake pop strain - featured image

In this Cake Pop Strain review, I’ll share my experience using an 80% Indica and 20% Sativa from Curaleaf. This hybrid weed is a cross of Birthday Cake and Fire OG. 

What it lacks in visual appeal, the strain compensates in terms of flavor and aroma. The effect is also incredible, although it was honestly not at the top of my favorites. Keep on reading as I share my experience using the Cake Pop Strain.  

  • Lineage: Birthday Cake x Fire OG 
  • Type: Indica-dominant

  • Packaging Details: Packaged on 03/10/2023, tested and reviewed on 03/28/2023 (18 days later)

Appearance: 3.5/5

Let me start this Cake Pop Srain review by saying that its physical appearance is not its strongest suit. There’s nothing special when it comes to its bag appeal. In fact, it was quite underwhelming. 

The first thing I noticed is how small the buds were compared to other strains I previously tried. The nugs were minty green and grape-shaped. Upon closer inspection, you’ll see amber strands and frosty trichomes. 

If there’s one redeeming quality, it would be the trichome coverage. It’s sticky and resinous when touched. 

Aroma: 3.5/5

The aroma of Cake Pop strain is a delightful sensory experience that tantalizes the senses, although honestly weak for my preference. 

As I opened the package, a distinct nutty vanilla cake scent wafted into the air, instantly capturing my attention. The aroma carried a subtle earthy undertone, adding depth to the overall fragrance. 

While it may not be overpowering, the aroma is undeniably inviting. It’s worth noting that the scent fades relatively quickly, leaving behind a more subtle and delicate presence.

Flavor: 4/5

The flavor profile of the Cake Pop strain is a delectable symphony for the taste buds. 

With each inhale, sweet, nutty essence dances on the palate, reminiscent of a luscious vanilla-infused treat. The sweetness is pronounced, creating a delightful indulgence. However, it’s not all about the sweetness. 

The flavor carries subtle hints of pepper and spice, adding an intriguing twist to the overall taste experience. These gentle notes of spice provide a pleasant contrast to the sweetness, creating a well-balanced flavor profile that keeps you coming back for more. 

Effects: 4/5

The effects are incredible and are also apparent in almost an instant. It has a pleasant tingle that swiftly evolves into a full-bodied buzz, energizing you from head to toe and occasionally igniting a sense of arousal.

As the buzz infiltrates your mind, you’ll find your mood elevated to new heights. A euphoric, unfocused bliss washes over you, inducing giggles and an overwhelming sense of happiness. 

The therapeutic benefits of this weed strain are also impressive. I’ve been suffering from chronic stress, and this strain was a relief. I also heard from some people that it worked like magic for appetite loss and nausea, among other conditions.

Overall: 4/5

While I’ve seen better strains, Cake Pop is decent overall. The buds were small and the aroma is weak, but it has incredible sweet and nutty flavors. Not to mention, the effects are great, especially for people who are suffering from stress and appetite loss. 

I would recommend this to those who are new to the cannabis world, especially if you’re looking for something affordable. 


The Cake Pop Strain may not work for everyone. Hence, if you’re looking for something better, here are some of my recommendations: 

  • Chem Glue Strain: Like Cake Pop, this strain is also Indica-dominant. However, the biggest difference is that it has a higher THC level, which means it’s going to be more potent. 
  • Guava Bars Strain: If you prefer Sativa over Indica, this strain is for you. Its aroma and flavor are more pronounced than what you’ll find in Cake Pop.
