Last month’s recreational sales for Illinois suggested that more customers were buying bulk when possible. Last month, I picked up from Sunnyside Champaign an ounce of Mint Cake High Supply Popcorn by Cresco.
Mint Cake is an indica cross between Animal Mints and Wedding Cake. This batch of High Supply popcorn buds tested at 0.29% THC, 22.30% THCa, and 22.38% total cannabinoids. The three leading terpenes included caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene.
The popcorn buds, in general, were a little bigger than other High Supply Cresco popcorn I’ve reviewed. The dark and sometimes pine green buds were soft but with a bouncy consistency. Most of the time I used a grinder before smoking (which I rarely do). The buds were pretty well trimmed and contained rust colored pistils and bright creamy trichomes.
The aroma skewed earthy and hoppy on the front end but followed with notes of creamy orange mint and a touch of kush.
The inhale started with sweet and creamy mint and then added notes of cinnamon and orange. The exhale started with a creamy earthiness and hops and finished with a strong mint and cinnamon aftertaste.
Mint Cake’s cerebral effects were similar to the Wedding Cake and delivered a strong but relatively clear head high. I was able to write and finish a couple projects I’d started. The more I dosed, though, the more the traditional indica kicked in with, what I would call, brain calming but not thougtlock.
Surprisingly, the body buzz took longer than expected to become effective. Once the body relaxation did kick in, the buzz kept building with more doses. Eventually, the body buzz settled into couchlock and offered late night mental and physical calming and relaxation.
Overall, Mint Cake is made for patients who want to wind down at night with a strain that mentally relaxes without thoughtlock and offers a pain-relieving body buzz.
