About LA Cake
If you think LA Cake is going to be the ultimate dessert strain, think again. Crafted by the team at Los Angeles Kush, this gal is anything but sweet, however, she makes up for it with sheer power. LA Cake is a cross between Gorilla Glue #4 and LA Kush and tends to be fairly widely available along the West Coast.
Depending on your tolerance, this bud may or may not be your best friend. LA Cake can vary anywhere from 19% to 26% THC, which is surprising given her GG#4 lineage. Each sticky nug is blanketed in amber trichomes and leaves little of her olive green base color showing through. Rather than tasting like everyone’s favorite birthday treat, this strain takes on a strong, savory approach with diesel, pine, earth, and herbs all accented with a sour note that’s hard to ignore. For some, it’s an acquired taste while others won’t even give her a chance.
LA Cake is a pretty unique strain because while she may be evenly balanced on paper, smokers report that her effects are quite sedating. Initially, your high will probably begin with a rush of joy that’s coupled with a super numbing sensation, allowing both your body and mind to relax in a matter of seconds. It’s also common for you to feel a warming tingle up and down your body, helping you to further forget about the world around you. Unless you have the tolerance of a superhero, there’s a good chance you’ll end up falling asleep, making LA Cake the perfect strain to enjoy before bed.
Many individuals who use cannabis for medical purposes claim this bud is one of the better options around, providing help with a range of issues and offering long-lasting relief. The euphoria that typically comes along with LA Cake’s high is one that can help to offset anxiety and depression, allowing you to enjoy a night without worry. Bodily pain such as migraines, cramps, or joint issues may also be temporarily soothed with just a few tokes of this powerful bud. If you smoke enough of her, LA Cake could be used as a regular sleep aid to battle insomnia as well.
Like many other Southern California breeders, Los Angeles Kush isn’t too keen on sharing their strains with home cultivators. Trying to purchase seeds of LA Cake online is an exercise in futility, so it’s best that you leave this plant to the experts. If you do come across a seed or clone, consult with a more experienced grower before you do anything else.
Don’t be fooled by her name, as LA Cake is anything but a sweet treat. As long as you can handle her intense flavors and have built up enough of a tolerance to enjoy her effects, she’s a strain that could become a new part of your evening ritual. If you’re feeling particularly bold, consider toking on a lazy weekend and enjoy a solid nap.
