What is Waffle Cone weed like to smoke?

What are the Waffle Cone strain effects?

Being an indica dominant strain Waffle Cone provides a heavy body high that comes on fast. Despite the typical indica effects many users claim the initial high gives them tingly feelings and a cerebral buzz that leaves you feeling uplifted and with a feeling of euphoria and creativity, making it a great daytime smoke.

After the initial buzz begins to wear off users will be left in a trance-like state that leads into a relaxed sedated effect. Waffle Cone weed is strong, smoke too much and you will most likely feel the couch lock effect.

Is Waffle cone strain indica or sativa?

Waffle Cone is a 70% indica dominant hybrid plant, that typically grows five to six feet tall. It is a hybrid strain and sativa phenos have been reported whereby the plant grows taller and has more of a sativa shape, however the common phenotype clearly displays its indica traits.

Despite its indica dominance the high does reflect its sativa genetics too with an uplifting and creative feeling.


The Waffle Cone strain has been measured at 20-24% THC. It is not the strongest weed strain, although the effects have been reported to feel more potent than the weed actually is. This could be because of the prevalence of other compounds in the bud such as CBD and CBN that also play a role in creating its psychoactive effects.


One of the biggest selling points of Waffle Cone weed is its incredible flavor. With blends of nuttiness mixed with undertones of diesel the weed almost tastes like truffle oil but with a slightly sweeter after taste.

The aroma however, tricks you into thinking that it is a desert strain with notes of cherries, fruit, and nuts. Although during flowering you will notice that distinct skunky aroma that is immediately recognizable as a cannabis plant (that’s a warning to any stealth growers).


The three dominant terpenes found in Waffle Cone weed strain are Myrcene, Caryophyllene and Pinene.


Myrcene is a terpene found in mangoes, hops, and other plants. It has potential sedative effects and may also offer anti-inflammatory and analgesic benefits.


Caryophyllene is a terpene commonly found in black pepper, cloves, and rosemary. It has potential anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits with antimicrobial properties.


Pinene is found in pine needles, rosemary, and other coniferous plants. It has potential anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator effects.

How to grow the Waffle Cone Strain

Fortunately, Waffle Cone is not a particularly difficult plant to grow and if you can get your hand on these seeds or a clone its suitable for beginners. Great for both indoor and outdoor growing Waffle Cone is a versatile plant that grows an average height of four to six feet tall.

If growing outdoors the ideal harvest time outdoors would be mid-October time. Indoors you are looking at 8-10 from the start of flowering. Although for those that want to produce some super potent bud you should check the trichomes as harvest time approaches and once about 50-70% of them have turned a cloudy/milky color they will can be harvested for optimal THC levels.

Waffle Cone yields around 400 – 500g/m2. However, to hit the top end of the yield capability if this strain you should adopt low stress training (LST) methods such as ScrOG during the vegetative stage of growth. This will encourage lateral growth and create a shorter wider plant with a flat canopy. This is not only more manageable and easier to maintain but once in flowering phase you will really benefit from the structure as the plant begins to produce multiple bud sites.

By widening the growth pattern of the plant, it shortens the height and allows the large fan leaves access to light that would otherwise be lower down and shaded. This optimizes light absorption and allows the plant to pack on considerable size.

Once you see the multiple bud sites appearing, to boost their production of the flowers, trim some of the larger fan leaves off using defoliation techniques. This allows more energy to be directed to bud production, effectively supercharging your flowering period. This is a high stress training technique so it should be carried out with great care. Be careful and only remove around 10% of the fan leaves, too many and you could stress the plant.

Once you reach week three of flowering try this pruning technique again and this should further boost bud production.

This technique is not suitable with every cannabis strain; however, Waffle Cone is a versatile and resilient strain that tends to respond will to a little HST.

Where can I buy Waffle Cone seeds?

Unfortunately our growing team are still working hard to procure a suitable Waffle Cone plant to breed with. As soon as we have one, we will most certainly begin the process of breeding Waffle Cone seeds for retail. However, until then, why not try a similar strain such as Gelato or Wedding Cake?
