Ritual Grape Cream Cake, or GCC, is a predominantly indica hybrid that has carved out a unique niche for itself in the cannabis market. Born from the crossbreeding of Ice Cream Cake, Grape Pie, and Wedding Crasher, this strain boasts a flavorful fusion that’s as intriguing as it is satisfying. With the product’s rich flavor and aroma profile, you can anticipate a sensory delight where fruity notes of grapes and cherries intertwine with a subtle hint of nutty vanilla.
Created by Ritual Green, this strain offers more than just an enticing aroma and taste – it promises an unforgettable experience, both in its consumption and the journey it takes you on.
The moment we pulled open the seal on the sturdy, resealable bag, we’re welcomed by an enticing blend of fragrances. Initially, a soft touch of earthy grape drifts gently into the air, beautifully balanced by a swift, strong citrus spark that playfully dances around our noses. The true essence of the aroma, however, springs to life when we begin to grind the flower, readying it for a roll. Suddenly, a rich, creamy scent leaped out, adding an unexpected layer of depth to the scent profile. This delightful surprise spikes our collective curiosity, leaving us all eager to unveil whatever hidden pleasures this Grape Cream Cake might offer.
Ritual Green’s Grape Cream Cake comes in a neat, classy matte black resealable bag that’s as straightforward as it is stylish. The front of the bag neatly presents all the key details, including the brand and product name, the well-known THC symbol, type of flower, plus the cannabinoid levels. But flip the bag over, and you’re treated to a wealth of extra information that really impresses us. From the breakdown of terpene percentages and main terpenes to the strain’s family tree and a useful guide on how to open the seal, Ritual Green doesn’t miss a beat when it comes to giving comprehensive details. We’re also happy to see the company’s contact info, weight, packaging date, and batch number, which shows their commitment to being open with their customers. This attention to detail definitely earns our highest praise.
Opening the bag, we’re met with a range of small to medium-sized buds. These buds are trimmed to perfection, contain a decent amount of trichomes and are incredibly dense – it’s clear that Ritual Green takes their craft seriously. An extra touch of class comes in the form of a humidity shield, which seems to help keep the perfect level of moisture during storage, making sure our experience will be top-notch.
With the flower’s enticing aroma still fresh in our thoughts, we couldn’t wait to roll up a joint and spark it up. But what came next was both surprising and intriguing. The first inhale hit us with a gentle yet distinct mix of earthy tastes, woven together with the essence of purple grapes. But the sweetness didn’t linger. It was quickly replaced by a potent and almost overwhelming flavor of black pepper, leading to a fair bit of throat irritation and a round of coughing fits. This unusual blend left us both intrigued and reflective, offering a unique smoking experience that was as memorable as it was challenging.
Our bag was part of lot number 2022064 with a package date of January 13, 2023. Sporting a strong THC level of 27.67% and a fair price of $34.95 for 3.5 grams, this strain promised a unique and captivating experience. While the smoke was a bit harsh due to the punchy black pepper flavor, the resulting high was all about physical relaxation. Just a few puffs in and we felt a soft, enveloping sense of calm throughout our bodies, coupled with a slight heaviness in our eyes. Interestingly, this one did not have much impact on us mentally, making it a great pick for anyone looking to kick back and find some peace. That said, we’d advise against using it for a wake and bake routine – consuming too much might make you want to crawl back into bed due to its sleep-inducing effects.
