Guava Cake is a rare indica dominant hybrid strain created as a backcross of the iconic Gold Leaf strain. If you’re searching for a delicious flavor and a super lifted indica-heavy high, you’ve found it with Guava Cake. This tasty bud packs a sweet tropical berry flavor into each and every toke with a lightly herbal exhale. The aroma is earthy and herbal with a touch of sweet fruits and a heavy tropical berry overtone. The Guava Cake high is just as delightful as the flavor, with a super giddy overtone that will have you in the best mood of your life before you fade away into a long and peaceful sleep. You’ll feel an influx of happy creative energy at the onset of the high, filling both mind and body with a giddiness that quickly turns giggly and unfocused. Soon, it takes a sedative turn, leaving you drifting away before you know it into a long and peaceful sleep. In combination with its super potent 28-30% average THC level, these effects make Guava Cake the perfect bud for treating experienced patients suffering from conditions such as insomnia, depression, chronic stress, nausea of appetite loss and chronic fatigue. Guava Cake buds have spade-shaped dark forest green nugs with deep amber hairs and a coating of chunky purple-tinted white crystal trichomes and sweet syrupy resin.

In this review, you’ll find everything you need to know about the Guava Cake strain, including its lineage, phenotypes, smell, taste, effects, medical uses, and cultivation
Sometimes cannabis strains are shrouded in mystery like you’ll see in this Guava Cake strain review. When marijuana strains are rare and have limited information on their heritage, other breeders step up to the plate to try and recreate it for the masses.
So far, the derivatives of the original Guava Cake haven’t nailed down the genetic lineage, so there are quite a few attempts at creating Guava Cake nowadays. We’ll examine the most popular lineages that are labeled as Guava Cake and Guava Kush.
Guava Cake Strain Genetics
First things first, let’s look at some of the accepted versions of Guava Cake and their lineages:
- A Gold Leaf phenotype of Wedding Cake backcrossed with itself
- A cross of Wedding Cake, Strawberry Kush, and Durban Poison
- A cross of Guava and OG Kush
While the Gold Leaf and Wedding Cake combination is the most commonly cited as being the true Guava Cake, you won’t be finding any seeds to grow your own. This version is a 70/30 indica dominant hybrid strain.
Wedding Cake is a widespread indica hybrid ganja strain that is known for its potency and relaxing euphoric experience and is quite easy to find. Gold Leaf, on the other hand, has an unknown genetic lineage and is also produces a relaxing indica-dominant high that induces couch-lock or a nice long bout of sleep.
The cross of Wedding Cake, Strawberry Kush, and Durban Poison is a sativa dominant hybrid weed strain that is available as feminized seeds through seed banks online.
We’ve discussed Wedding Cake, but Strawberry Kush and Durban Poison change this version of Guava Cake into a sativa dominant marijuana strain. Strawberry Kush leans more towards sativa and features an OG Kush heritage that intertwines the kushy essence with notes of strawberry, living up to its name.
Durban Poison is a heavy sativa that elicits a productive and creative cerebral high that boosts energy levels.
Lastly, the cross of Guava and OG Kush is typically labeled as Guava Kush or Guava Cake and is also available in seed form through seed banks. It’s another sativa dominant hybrid bred by Garden Of Green.
Guava is a phenotype of the uber-popular Gelato strain created by Cookies Fam known for the essence of fruit and fuel. OG Kush is a cannabis strain that has spawned a ton of child-strains and grandchild-strains and is ubiquitous in the cannabis world.
Two of the versions of Guava Cake are available in seed form. Maybe you can grow both and decide which is deserving of the name the most!
