A Loss Of Appetite
Wedding Crasher weed is a strain bred from Wedding Cake (a hybrid), and Purple Punch – a relatively popular indica flower that is one-half Granddaddy Purple and one-half Larry OG. (So funny as it may be, you could legitimately say that Grandaddy Purple is actually a “botanical granddaddy” of Wedding Crasher).
Symbiotic Genetics is generally credited as the mastermind breeder behind the Wedding Crasher strain. They conceived the great idea of combining two relatively sweet and fruity flavors. This produced a solid blend of (mostly) indica-dominant traits.
From a genetic perspective, Wedding Crasher weed is classified as a hybrid. Nevertheless, its indica-specific traits could rank in as high as 45% or so. (Looking at the flower and/or the entire plant of a specific crop would help give you a better idea of the indica profile).
We’ve seen Wedding Crasher weed with THC content upwards of 20%, but again, this is something that will vary slightly from flower to flower. It doesn’t have a high CBD content though, so be advised that it will produce a pretty legit high. One commenter on Leafly even said it made him feel like Batman.
Aroma and Flavour
Have any experience with Wedding Crasher’s parent strains – Wedding Cake and Purple Punch? If so, you should be able to get a pretty good idea of the aroma and flavor profile that you’ll be dealing with when you toke up a healthy dose of this hybrid flower.
In our experience, the grape hit of the Purple Punch is a bit more noticeable than the vanilla from the Wedding Cake, but if you’ve got even a slightly discernible palate you should be able to identify both. All in all, what you’ll be getting is a more-than-mildly-sweet hit, with a nice berry aftertaste. A pretty enjoyable strain if you’re into the fruity-flavored stuff.
In terms of aroma, you can pretty much guess what kinds of scents will be flooding your nostrils when you chirp out on a decent cultivate of Wedding Crasher weed.
As far as general visual appeal, the Wedding Crasher strain is nothing that will really catch your attention too much. The phenotypes we’ve seen have generally been pretty frosty with a lovely trichome presence, as well as healthy-looking pistils that nicely counterbalance the earthy-green tint of the sugar leaves.
We have seen a couple of buds with a decent smattering of purple. Really all this means is the CO2 levels were probably slightly elevated during the growing process. (Contrary to popular belief, purple marijuana does not constitute heightened potency. Any strain – and in fact, any flower for that matter – can develop purple leaves if the anthocyanin presence is stronger than the chlorophyll presence).
In terms of the high that Wedding Crasher weed produces, it’s a damn good one. It doesn’t have that “stoning” effect of a full-on indica. The “professional balance” that exists between the sativa and indica lineage produces a mostly-cerebral high that is at once invigorating. At the same time, this strain still maintains a traditional “spacey” element to it.
Also, a lot of folks say they feel a certain level of mental fortitude. After toking up a decent specimen of Wedding Crasher nuggets, some describe an increase in confidence. It sounds odd to say that a weed strain will promote “confidence,” but hey, we’ve heard of stranger things.
In our experience, the high is more sativa-dominant than indica-dominant, which is odd because most of the other traits of the plant seem to have a very obvious “indica appeal.” I personally prefer that spaciness of potent sativas, and Wedding Crasher provides that nicely while still maintaining a clear-headed and easily-manageable cerebral state.
All in all, the flower provides a wonderful high that is neither too anxiety-inducing nor too sedative. It won’t melt your body away along the lines of something like Northern Lights, but it will definitely be enough to chill you out while still encouraging an element of psychoactiveness and creativity.
Wedding Crasher weed isn’t a strain too often used for medicinal purposes. Simply going off of its cerebral and physical effects we would reckon it would work wonders on folks who suffer from migraines, arthritis, and even chronic body pain.
Since it lacks the sedative punch of a full-bore indica it probably wouldn’t be the best sleep-inducing option for victims of insomnia or anxiety, but still – we could easily see it being effective to help deal with mild bouts of stress, depression, and even fatigue.
All in all, we would reckon that Wedding Crasher weed is a strain definitely worth trying. Especially if you can get your hands on it. It’s not something that any dispensary on earth will have on hand. Additionally, it’s probably not really worth calling around to try and find. If, however, you happen to see a jar of it in your go-to shop around home, pick up a gram and try it out. (And if you do, be sure to let us know what you thought of it in the comments below!).
We hope you enjoyed this Wedding Crasher strain review. If you’re a fan of either Wedding Cake or Purple Punch (or both), you’ll surely enjoy the concoction of cerebral effects that this pretty little hybrid flower produces.
