Chem Cake Strain Review

Chem Cake Strain Review
Gifted Curators offers “DC weed at its finest.” One of our cannabis connoisseurs, Kush-n-Pain, is sampling legendary strains from Gifted Curators to review for Urban Aroma readers. Read on for Kush-n-Pain’s review of Chem Cake.

Chem Cake

Looking for a nice ride? Go for a roll with this lady, and you will be most pleased. Chem Cake (Wedding Cake x Stardawg) is a smooth and even balanced sativa-leaning hybrid that will lift your mood and relax your body.
The aroma is like biting into a piece of cake while pumping gas, a sweet funk. This is the sensation I received as I unsealed the lid, and a rush of deliciosity rushed out and tickled my nose and taste buds. The nugs were softly dense and internally sticky. Chem Cake's colors range from lime to deep green with purple undertones, and crystals sparkling like diamonds in the rough.

Two Tokes Test

Choking fuel filled my lungs and chugged out my nostrils like an old school coal-stoked locomotive. Wooo! Wooo! It's the Mary Jane Train, and I have a ticket to ride. With the second toke, I noted spicy, sweet, woodsy elements with a final taste of red clay.
My eyes, third eye and nose felt aglow, but this is total cerebral recreational medicine. I experienced a fully baked, stress-relieving ease. My mental state was alert and ready for activities, whether they be work or play. My body felt mellow and without tension. As an elder citizen, I can recommend this for mollifying mild body aches, and experienced smokers won't find this debilitating. Noobs and heavy tokers will prolly find this bud stony, but clear-headed and full of whimsy.

The Breakdown

Moving to the lineage: Chem Cake is made from crossing Wedding Cake with Stardawg. Wedding Cake is Cherry Pie x GSC. So what's with the "Chem"? Well, Stardawg is Chemdawg 4 x Tres Dog (Chemdawg x Afghani #1). This iconic heritage explains the even head and body experience of Chem Cake.


Lab results show:
  • THC: 23-27%
  • CBG-A: 1.48%
Other major cannabinoids are less than 1%.


  • Caryophyllene (spicy, immune modulator)
  • Myrcene (earthy, relaxing)
  • Limonene (citrus, uplifting)
  • Humulene (hoppy/floral, anti anxiety)

The Final Hit

Chem Cake is a back-in-the-day skunk meets the sweet flavors of today. Its ensemble effect will manifest by working the mind and body evenly to allow for raised Spirit.
Rating: On the Ephrata 1-10 Scale I give this a +9.25. There are better medical/recreational cultivars for uninterrupted sleep or extra galactic questers. Still, Chem Cake is a great smoke for personal use, and to share.
