The packaging of Edison’s Space Cake is consistent with their other products, arriving in a durable plastic container complete with a secure lid. Upon opening the container, we were immediately struck by a tantalizing aroma that seemed to be a unique blend of freshly ground coffee and an array of exotic spices. While this combination of scents may seem unusual at first, it was surprisingly pleasant and inviting, particularly for those who appreciate the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. As we delved deeper into the aroma of Space Cake, we also detected subtle notes of earthy Kush, which added depth and complexity to the overall experience.
Edison’s attention to detail was evident from the moment we received our package of Space Cake, which arrived in a sleek dark blue plastic container complete with a humidity shield to ensure optimal freshness. Upon opening the container, we were greeted with a plethora of information about the strain, including its lineage, THC and CBD content, and signature terpenes. This level of transparency is highly appreciated, as it allows consumers to make informed decisions about their cannabis use.
As we examined the Space Cake buds themselves, we noticed that they were medium in size and expertly trimmed, though a few sugar leaves remained. The buds were covered in a moderately thick layer of trichomes, which glistened in the light. Upon closer inspection, we observed a captivating collage of light green bud and brown pistil hairs scattered throughout the flowers. While the buds appeared visually appealing, we did note that they seemed slightly dry, which could result in a crumbly texture upon handling.
We eagerly ground up a few buds of Space Cake in our Kannastor grinder and rolled up a joint to sample the flavour of this unique strain. Upon lighting up, we were met with a distinct peppery taste that lingered on the tongue and left a slightly harsh sensation in the throat. As we continued to inhale, the flavour transformed into a robust coffee undertone that complemented the initial spice notes well. This unusual combination of flavours was certainly unexpected, and we were left with mixed feelings about it. While the peppery taste may not be to everyone’s liking, the coffee notes provided a pleasant and unexpected twist that made for an interesting smoking experience.
Our batch of Space Cake, which was part of lot number 264715220910 and had a package date of September 10, 2022 with 26.3% THC, was priced at $34.95 for 3.5 grams. While we’ve enjoyed previous offerings from Edison, we found the potency of this strain to be somewhat underwhelming. As discerning cannabis consumers, we always seek out high-quality buds and consistency from producers, and unfortunately, we felt that Space Cake fell short in this regard.
That being said, the experience provided by Space Cake was still enjoyable. Upon smoking, we felt a moderate impact that primarily affected our eyes, causing a mild heaviness and droopiness. This physical relaxation was accompanied by a slight mental fog that left us feeling mellow and carefree. While the high wasn’t particularly intense or memorable, it was certainly pleasant and would be suitable for a low-key evening spent with friends or unwinding after a long day. Overall, a more potent high would have been nice, but the mild and mellow effects of Space Cake may be appealing to those seeking a gentle cannabis experience.
