City Slicker (Kind Tree)

A hybrid staple in the Bay Area, City Slicker is a must-have for cannabis users with a finer palette.

Limonene, phellandrene, and caryophyllene provide Jack Herer’s citrusy, refreshing, and peppery taste.

Cherry Glaze (Lowell Herb Co.)

The sweet flavor of cherry and cake batter come together in Lowell Herb Co.’s indica strain, Cherry Glaze. With Grand Daddy Purple in its lineage, Cherry Glaze follows GDP’s legacy by relieving its users from stress, pain, insomnia and muscle spasms. Beta-Caryophyllene, myrcene, and limonene create Cherry Glaze’s sweetly comforting effects and nostalgic flavor.

Users report feeling a delightful body high and use Cakewalk to relieve chronic pain, stress, depression, and muscle spasms. Cakewalk contains the terpenes humulene, myrcene, pinene, and pulegone which gives it its sweet, nutty, and earthy flavors.

Wedding Cake (Seed & Smith)

The hybrid most experienced users swear by. Wedding Cake is the famous love child of Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie, and its side effects follow suit. Wedding Cake can throw a wild card of effects depending on the individual user, so first-timers should be cautious when trying this. The following terpenes give Wedding Cake its herbal and citrusy aroma: myrcene, valencene, linalool, camphene, and caryophyllene.
