Lemon Pound Cake
About Lemon Pound Cake
History & Genetics
Lemon Pound Cake is sweet, earthy, and packed with citrus flavor. Heavyweight Seeds bred it from Lemon Skunk and a Cheese strain, which makes the resulting strain equally pungent with lemon flavor and musky with a flavor layer of skunky cheese. For mid-high THC levels and a strain that can help you feel hungry and stress-free, the sativa-dominant (70/30) Lemon Pound Cake can be a great afternoon pick-me-up strain. Definitely don’t expect this cake to help you sleep.
Appearance, Aroma, & Flavor
The flavor of Lemon Pound Cake (also called Lemon Cheesecake and Lemon Cake) is sweet and spicy, packed with as much bright citrus flavor as herbal, woodsy spice. Beneath that flavor, users will notice the Cheese genetics in its musky undertones.
The dominant terpenes Humulene, Myrcene, and Caryophyllene describe this mix perfectly. Humulene particularly brings notes of wood, spice, and earth to the flavorful fruit mix of the Lemon Skunk genetics. New users shouldn’t be worried, though – a pine-like aftertaste and mid-high THC average of around 20% makes the strain effective but enjoyably delicious even for newcomers.
Lemon Pound Cake’s effects are primarily energizing, providing a sense of happy euphoria. This makes it ideal for increasing energy and improving your appetite. Users take advantage of Lemon Pound Cake when they have housework or exercise to do. Being social, walking in nature or around the town, or just people-watching out in the world can be vastly improved with a snack of Lemon Pound Cake.
The strain’s medicinal effects range from relieving stress to helping your body release problematic muscle spasms. Headaches and depression don’t stand a chance against Lemon Cake either. Users compare a drag of this strain to a blast of cerebral energy similar to a high-caffeine energy drink. Users report feeling euphoric, motivated, and ready to go.
Depending on your needs, Lemon Pound Cake can improve your appetite, reduce your stress, or motivate you to go and be social out in the world. Exploring nature and exercising can be made far easier using the mind-body connection of Lemon Pound Cake as flavor motivation.
Lemon Pound Cake takes its time growing, flowering in about 10 weeks on average. It grows squat and bushy but has a large yield. This gives it very large colas, which are covered in wispy yellow pistils. The colas are so large that the buds can collapse under their own weight without support.
GROWERS TIP: Due to the strain’s energetic, bushy growing cycle, we recommend keeping the vegetation period short. However, once Lemon Pound Cake has entered the flowering cycle, you can back off and let the plant grow naturally.
my new favorite. and thats saying something from a decades long smoker. love at first hit, it hit me hard and fast but with a cushined impact i rarely feel in a sativa. picked up a cart of this (new leaf) %86%. now, i have a fairly massive tolerance and usually have to layer my bowls into a moonrock type masterpiece with kief, oil, flower with wax smeared, and a layer of kief and herb etc you know the kind of party bowl but i have to make those every time. or sit there and watch 1/4 of my 90% cart disappear in one session.. not with this. the first thing to go was my nausea which made me instantly love it even more. 3 puffs and the magic of this hit me. a very standout strain, this really does feel like youve had coffee or something without the negatives or excess. a must for if you like to smoke to study or code or art or jam or work out, anything that takes physical stamina or dexterity. wont couch lock you or make you want to nap. an absolute diamond in the rough. an instant staple into my standard strain rotation now
