Wedding Cake x Animal Cookies
Double Dip is a feminized hybrid of Wedding Cake and Animal Cookies¬—two of the finest dessert-themed strains ever created. This cultivar from Greenpoint Seeds blends the best traits of Kush and Cookies to create a connoisseur-grade strain that growers, as well as consumers, love. The extreme trichome production of Double Dip makes it an excellent choice for hash makers and extractors, and its sugary sweet aroma and powerful effects are sure to keep users coming back for more.
Wedding Cake and Animal Cookies, the parents of Double Dip, are powerful strains that have won numerous awards in recent years. Wedding Cake is an easy-to-grow variety that offers a large yield of frosty buds. In contrast, Animal Cookies is a potent and aromatic strain that is somewhat challenging to grow. By combing the two, Greenpoint Seeds developed a hardy and vigorous hybrid that retains the best qualities of both and is moderately easy to grow.
Double Dip Strain
Wedding Cake is the mother of Double Dip. This cultivar has received widespread acclaim and is known for delivering large yields of sweet buds that are heavily caked in resin.
The story of Wedding Cake started with a popular line of seeds known as Triangle Mints. Triangle Mints was developed by Jbeezy of Seed Junky Genetics. To create the strain, Jbeezy used his prized Animal Mints male to pollinate the original, clone-only cut of Triangle Kush. The resulting hybrid, known as Triangle Mints, was a hit among growers and users.
One particular phenotype of Triangle Mints stood out from the rest. This cut produced a generous yield of buds that emitted a lovely aroma of lemon, vanilla, cookie dough, and sponge cake. The Jungle Boys, a famous group of growers in Los Angeles, nicknamed this phenotype “Wedding Cake,” in honor of its sweet aroma.
Wedding Cake became an overnight sensation, and enthusiastic breeders used it to create such exotic strains as Jungle Cake, Guava Cake, and Wedding Pie. In 2018, Wedding Cake won 1st Prize for Best Hybrid Flower at the Southern California High Times Medical Cannabis Cup. Since it has won many other awards and has become a powerful tool for breeders who are looking to create potent and flavorful hybrids.
Wedding Cake Lineage
Wedding Cake, one of the parents of Double Dip, is a phenotype of the Triangle Mints line of seeds. Triangle Mints is a hybrid of the famed Triangle Kush and Jbeezy’s Animal Mints male. Triangle Kush is one of the most popular strains of all time and is believed to have been created through the accidental pollination of an Emerald Triangle plant by a Hindu Kush plant.
Animal Mints, the father of Wedding Cake, was created by Seed Junky Genetics. The Animal Mints strain is a three-way cross of Animal Cookies, Girl Scout Cookies, and Sin City Seeds’ Blue Power male. Seed Junky has used the Animal Mints stud to create several high-quality strains, including Kush Mints, Animal Face, and Animal Walker.
Animal Cookies, also known as Animal Crackers, is the other parent of Double Dip. Animal Cookies is a potent cross of Girl Scout Cookies and Fire OG. This rare, clone-only variety was bred by the Cookies Family of San Francisco. The Cookies Family has created several prize-winning strains such as Gelato 33 and Thin Mint Cookies. Animal Cookies’ alluring bag appeal and powerful effects make this strain one of the finest representations of the Girl Scout Cookies family.
Animal Cookies Lineage
Animal Cookies, the other parent of Double Dip, is a hybrid of Girl Scout Cookies and Fire OG. The pedigree of Girl Scout Cookies is unclear; however, according to the Cookies Family, it is a three-way hybrid of Durban Poison, Florida OG, and an unknown strain referred to as “F1.”
The lineage of Fire OG also is unclear. Some growers suggest that Fire OG is an original phenotype of OG Kush, and others maintain that it is an S1 or a hybrid of OG. Animal Cookies combines the striking color and aroma of Girl Scout Cookies and the potency and yield of Fire OG.
Double Dip Feminized Cannabis Seeds
To create Double Dip, Greenpoint Seeds pollinated the award-winning phenotype of Wedding Cake with the rare, clone-only cut of Animal Cookies. Double Dip produces a variety of phenotypes that offer the best traits of Cookies and Kush. Some plants may share the large yield and sweet aroma of Wedding Cake, and others may present the sweet-and-sour tang of Animal Cookies. Due to its Triangle Kush and Fire OG ancestors, some phenotypes may present the growth structure and aroma of OG Kush.
Double Dip is an Indica-dominant feminized hybrid. Growers value feminized seeds because these seeds make the growing process simple. By using feminized seeds, growers can rest assured that 99.9 percent of the seeds will produce all-female plants. This eliminates the need to keep a close eye on the plants and separate the males from the garden.
Double Dip Aroma
The aroma of Wedding Cake is similar to that of a freshly baked cake. The flowers of this scrumptious strain emit sweet and creamy notes of vanilla extract, lemon, cake batter, and cookie dough. When ground up, subtle hints of pine and gasoline become noticeable.
In contrast, Animal Cookies offers a complex, sweet-and-sour bouquet that is highly aromatic. The buds emit sweet notes of brown sugar, cookie dough, and cherries, coupled with spicy scents of skunk, gasoline, and fresh soil. Some users also report undertones of pine and pepper when breaking apart the flowers of Animal Cookies.
The aroma of Double Dip is a tribute to both of its parents. Double Dip combines the delicious aromas of Wedding Cake and Animal Cookies to create a terpene-rich strain that is both sweet and tangy. This cultivar smells of lemon, vanilla, and cherries, contrasted with bitter undertones of skunk, gasoline, and soil. Some phenotypes of Double Dip may share the sweet and delicate aroma of Wedding Cake, and others may emit the sweet-and-spicy bouquet of Animal Cookies. Finally, some rare phenotypes may share the pine, fuel, and soil aroma of Triangle Kush and Fire OG.
Double Dip Flavor
The flavor of Double Dip is as delectable as the aroma. This variety coats the mouth with a double dose of the sweet flavors of cake batter and cookie dough, with sharp notes of lemon, pine, and pepper. Some phenotypes will be sweeter and creamier, and others will offer a taste more sour and tangy. Most will provide the lip-smacking flavor that Cookies strains are famous for.
Double Dip Effects
Wedding Cake is an Indica-dominant hybrid that provides a deeply calming and soothing effect. This cultivar is highly potent, with some plants containing more than 25 percent THC. Users report that Wedding Cake puts the mind at ease and relieves pain and general feelings of discomfort. The high begins as a gentle wave of euphoria and slowly transforms into a relaxing body stone that may ease muscle tension. When consumed in large quantities, this potent strain may cause users to become glued to the couch.
Animal Cookies also provides powerful and narcotic effects. This Indica-dominant variety produces a strong body buzz that may ease tension and reduce pain. The high comes on quickly, elevating the mood, boosting the appetite, and relaxing the body. When consumed in excess, this strain may send even the most seasoned stoners into a deep sleep.
Double Dip unites these two Indica-dominant cultivars to create a potent hybrid that is highly narcotic. The high starts with a pleasant head rush and gently descends to the rest of the body, soothing the muscles and relieving pain and tension. Double Dip is perfect for an after-dinner smoke or a late-night treat.
Double Dip Structure
Wedding Cake is of medium height, with robust branches and sharply serrated leaves that often have thick resin rails. This variety forms medium to large-size colas that are heavily caked in a thick layer of trichomes. The flowers of Wedding Cake are dense and sticky, with purple sugar leaves, golden pistils, and milky white resin glands.
Animal Cookies is medium to tall in height, with long, lanky branches and emerald-green leaves. The leaves often display shades of purple and red when exposed to cold temperatures. Animal Cookies forms lime-green, popcorn-size buds that are dappled with purple sugar leaves and red-orange pistils.
Double Dip is as beautiful as it is potent, and it shares the characteristics of both parents. This variety usually is of medium height; however, some plants may be taller and lankier. Double Dip develops medium-size colas that are dense and heavy. The emerald flowers are ornamented with purple sugar leaves, amber pistils, and white trichomes.
Growing Double Dip
Wedding Cake is a hardy and vigorous strain that many growers find easy to cultivate. This variety is resilient to most pests and diseases, and can handle fluctuations in temperature. Wedding Cake is an adaptable strain and, as such, can be grown both indoors and outdoors, using a variety of cultivation methods. When grown outdoors, Wedding Cake thrives in a temperate climate, with moderate humidity.
In contrast, Animal Cookies is a challenging strain to cultivate. This variety is sensitive to fluctuations in temperature and pH, and other environmental stresses. Animal Cookies thrives in a highly controlled environment, with ample lighting, adequate nutrition, and a consistent pH.
Double Dip presents a potent and flavorful dessert-themed strain that is easier to grow than most Cookies varieties. This cultivar is resistant to most pests and diseases and can flourish indoors or outdoors, if given a temperate climate. However, some Animal Cookies-dominant phenotypes may be more sensitive to environmental stresses.
Animal Cookies stretches significantly as it begins to bloom. Like its parent, some phenotypes of Double Dip may stretch in height during the early flowering period. Growers can limit the vertical stretch and increase the yield of this cultivar by using a variety of high-stress and low-stress training methods. The plants respond well to topping, fimming, super cropping, and other training techniques. The weight of the hefty colas may cause the branches to sag during the late flowering period. Staking or trellising the plants may prevent the branches from flopping over.
Some phenotypes of Double Dip produce a thick canopy of leaves. Growers can increase light penetration and promote air circulation by removing excess fan leaves.
Pest & Disease Control
Many phenotypes of Double Dip are highly resilient to pests and diseases; however, some plants may be susceptible to powdery mildew infections. Growers can avoid fungal diseases by pruning the plants, providing sufficient lighting and air circulation, and lowering the humidity level. They can also use foliar sprays such as water and sodium bicarbonate solutions to stop powdery mildew from spreading.
As a result of the extreme density and frost of the buds, some Double Dip plants may be prone to bud rot. Growers can prevent bud rot by lightly pruning the plants, providing sufficient ventilation, and keeping the humidity level below 50 percent during the flowering period.
Most Cookies strains require an ample supply of calcium and magnesium. Growers can prevent calcium and magnesium deficiencies by using a cal-mag supplement or amending the growing medium with Epsom salt and dolomite lime. Because some Animal Cookies-dominant phenotypes may be sensitive to pH fluctuations, it is recommended that growers use a pH meter when mixing the nutrient solutions.
Harvesting & Curing Double Dip
Double Dip is a fast-flowering strain, with most phenotypes reaching maturity in nine weeks; however, some phenotypes may take ten weeks to fully ripen. Growers can determine if the plants are ripe by using a jeweler’s loupe or microscope to observe the trichomes on the buds. When the trichomes have turned white, with some turning amber, the plants are ready to be harvested. If the plants are harvested when the trichomes are clear, Double Dip may deliver a more uplifting and cerebral high. Conversely, if the plants are harvested when the trichomes are mostly amber, the effects are typically more narcotic. Harvesting at the right time will ensure maximum yield and potency.
Roughly one to two weeks before harvest, growers usually discontinue the use of fertilizers and flush the plants with plain, distilled water. This practice may remove excess fertilizer in the buds and improve their aroma and flavor. During this period, the large fan leaves of the plants may turn from emerald-green to yellow, purple, and red.
Growers harvest the plants by removing the ripest colas first. They remove the large fan leaves and manicure the flowers by trimming away the small sugar leaves that surround the buds. The sugar leaves can be used to make extracts, edibles, and other products.
After manicuring, the buds are ready to be dried. Growers hang the branches by a node or place them on a drying rack for three to six days. It may take longer to dry Double Dip, given the density and frost of the buds. Growers know the plants are dry when the stems snap rather than bend.
Once the plants have been dried, they are ready to be cured. The curing process is an essential step and can preserve the aroma, flavor, and potency of the buds. Growers remove the buds from the branches and place them in sealable glass jars. They store the jars in a cool, dry, and dark place, and open them once or twice a day. This process will prevent moisture from accumulating in the flowers. After two weeks, the buds are ready to be smoked; however, it may take up to eight weeks to cure them fully.
