Vertical Cannabis Strawberry Cake Review

Strawberry Cake from Vertical Cannabis is described as being a pungent indica strain with a strong fruity pine flavour and aroma.

We love fruity flavoured bud so when we ready about Vertical Cannabis Strawberry Cake having a fruity pine flavour we knew it was only a matter of time before we got some.

This strain was created in a threeway cross that included Chronic, White Widow and Cheese, producing a cultivar that is a pleasure for all the senses (or so they say). This rich taste and smell is compared to citrus, fruit and pine needles which is produced from a fairly complex terpene profile that includes alpha-bisobolol, alpha-pinene, alpha-cederene and alpha-phellandrene. Strawberry Cake is our first encounter with Vertical Cannabis so we have no clue what to expect, let’s find out how it smokes.

The product arrived in an industry standard black plastic container with security lid. With a name like Strawberry Cake, and a description about a strong stinky smell, we were really optimistic about this one. The second we snapped the top was off the container released a very powerful aroma of pine. There was certainly sweet undertones but almost every secondary smell was pushed to the back by the very strong aroma of pine needles.


First the good news, Vertical included a humidity shield inside the container and it make a significant difference to the freshness of the product. The buds were spongy, sticky and quite heavily saturated in trichomes. However we did notice some excess leaf on most of the buds and large stems as well, the flower looks above average but the trim job is a bit below average.


The flavour profile is probably the most exciting part of Vertical Cannabis’ Strawberry Cake strain. Given the strong and distinct pine aroma we were expecting something similar for the flavour profile. But we were surprised to discover that instead of the anticipated powerful pine there was a strong soothing sweet berry flavour that dominates the smoke while ending on a mild pine note – it was a very nice flavour and unexpected!


Given the low price point and 21.1% THC content, we thought Strawberry Cake by Vertical Cannabis is a flavourful strain that delivers a strong cerebral high that puts you into a relaxed mental state with shortened attention span and heightened physical awareness. If you’re looking for a smooth indica with interesting flavour and sold for under $30, then this one is worth trying out as long as you like the combination of fruit and pine. We even liked this one more then Gage’s Strawberry Fire OG strain.

We review and photograph the different products then share them on this website. The rating system we use is called “SAFE” which stands for Smell, Appearance, Flavour and Experience. Each category gets a score out of 10.
