What are the Flavor and Effects of Birthday Cake Feminized?
The flavor profile of the Birthday Cake takes after the sweet and earthy notes of the Girl Scout Cookies, whereas the fruity tang with a tinge of vanilla is from the Cherry Pie. Once inhaled, a resemblance of an oatmeal cookie with berry-flavored ice cream on top manifests. This combination of flavors lasts on the taste buds for some time, which may entice smokers to hit more puffs.
While an explosion of wonderful flavors is happening in the mouth, the mind is occupied by a cerebral buzz that starts not long after the first huff. It is a potent strain that begins with an overflowing amount of bliss wherein worries and pessimistic thoughts are removed. Senses are enhanced, and sounds, pictures, and the surrounding seem fascinating. During this time, ideas easily emerge, which can be beneficial for artists who are having a hard time due to creative blocks.
After a while, the long-lasting Sativa effects fade, and a physical buzz is released all over the body. This will make the body feel heavier, leading the smoker into a couch-lock state and eventually sleep.

How to Grow Birthday Cake Feminized?
The Birthday Cake inherited most of its physical characteristics from the Indica. It looks similar to a pine tree with its dark and huge leaves paired with dense foliage. What makes this plant stand out is its humungous colas and buds covered with an abundant amount of resins.
This plant is known to be greedy for calcium and magnesium, which is why growers need to monitor the levels frequently to prevent nutrient-deficiency. In an indoor environment, the Birthday Cake should be exposed to a temperature of around 70°F. The Sea of Green method using soil or hydroponics can boost the efficiency of the production process by producing a higher amount of buds within a limited space and time. This plant can be harvested after 56 to 70 days and give a result of up to 21.16 oz/m2.
Outdoors, the Birthday Cake, is best grown in a warm and sunny climate and can even thrive in a harsh environment. Cultivators can expect up to 28 ounces per plant that should be harvested around the middle of October.
