If movies have taught me anything fellow Tokers, it is that you respect the Jungle! So when DC local I-71 compliant provider DMV Organics offered me up their exclusive Jungle Cake strain for review, I approached with considerable caution. A notoriously strong indica dominant hybrid, Jungle Cake is known to boast high levels of THC and low levels of CBD. With THC levels ranging from 22% to a, “why am I wearing my socks over my shoes?” inducing 33%, this jungle is not playing around! Follow me through the Jungle fellow Tokers, and let’s bring some snacks and water cuz c’mon you know we’re gonna need it!
Bred by Los Angeles based Seed Junky Genetics, Jungle Cake is the result of cross breeding
White Fire #43 (a phenotype of White Fire OG aka WiFi OG) with Wedding Cake (a cross
breeding of Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies). Jungle Cake takes its name from its White Fire parent as White Fire itself is cross between Fire OG and White Rhino, and apparently someone was high enough to think Rhinos are jungle dwellers!
Jungle Cake’s terpene profile includes Ocimene and Pinene. Ocimene is derived from the
ancient Greek word Ocimum meaning basil, though the terpene’s profile is not predominantly herbal. The Ocimene terpene is known for some of the sweet and herbaceous flavors of certain cannabis strains, as well as citrusy and woodsy undertones.
Ocimene is a monoterpene and can be found in a wide variety of plants such as tarragon, hops, kumquats, mangoes, basil, bergamot, lavender, orchids, and pepper. In addition to anti-oxidative properties, it is currently being studied for its potential anti-inflammatory benefits.
Pinene is one of the most researched terpenes to date. Responsible for the scent of pine and fir trees, Pinene has also been identified as a potent anti-inflammatory and thought to ease the potential short-term memory loss associated with THC usage.
This potent yet balanced exotic Cali strain is great for afternoon or evening use. An earthy and nutty nose precedes the sweet sugary flavor with just a hint of marshmallow. Known for its heavy high and long lasting effects, this euphoric strain is great for Tokers looking for some relief and relaxation. Hit up DMV Organics today to get some Jungle Cake for yourself!
