London Pound Cake
About London Pound Cake
London Poundcake heavily favors Indica (it’s 70/30) and delivers a powerful blast of THC like few strains can handle, up to 29% in some cases. Genetically, the strain takes its Sunset Sherbet heritage seriously. The Spain-based breeder, Heavyweight Seeds, mixed it with an unknown Indica to form its own revelatory grape-berry and tropical nut masterpiece. The high is light at first, but sleuths around in your body for a while before resting on you (and allowing you to rest). You won’t be sleepy or sedated on London Poundcake, but that doesn’t stop it from being a great best friend for sufferers of moodiness, depression, and attention disorders.
London Poundcake doesn’t taste like grape so much as it announces it in loud trumpet blasts of flavor, cloaked in harmonies of sour lemon. The strain only takes on nutty or doughy flavors after a little searching, when the taste of a vanilla cookie starts to hang on the exhale. The first impression is of the outdoors — berries, grapes, and pine. The aftertaste as you sink into your couch is commonly very sour.
The strain grows densely, with dark green buds shaped like olives and a dusting of tiny amber trichomes. It grows long branches over its 10-12 week growing period, which is longer than average. This is why we recommend London Poundcake for experienced growers looking to tackle a bit of a challenge.
GROWING TIPS: Due to its long branches and above-average flowering time, London Poundcake needs to be nursed. By that, we mean pruning the branches frequently to prevent mold and mildew from forming, which the strain is very susceptible to as it has a hard time with humidity as well. Frequent grooming will also prevent the plant from wasting energy on unprofitable branches.
The London Poundcake high is gentle as it eases off the edges of your stressed-out mind and replaces negative thoughts with relaxed ones. It brings its 29% THC high to bear on your body with a feeling of evenness, creativity, and calm focus. This is why, activity-wise, we recommend London Poundcake when you’re with friends and in the mood to snack, talk, and giggle. It pairs well with going out, playing outside, walking around, going to the movies, hanging out with friends, eating, working on an arts project, and more.
Medicinally, London Poundcake works wonders for people suffering from mood disorders and attention deficit issues. Stress, fatigue, and depression can also be treated with London Poundcake. Due to its terpene profile, however, the strain is not known as a great pain-reliever.
As a mood-changer, the strain is an overachiever. Watch out for this one if you’re a grower or user with low experience – on both fronts, London Poundcake may be more than you can handle. If you have a taste for cake though, there’s nothing quite like it (except cake).
