Lemon Cake Strain Overview
Lemon Cake is a super sweet and lemony strain that’ll leave you anything but sour. This strain has a taste akin to lemons, sugar, and cheesecake. It can help to boost your mood as well as give you a burst of energy, so it’s a great strain for afternoon use. Lemon Cake also can help with chronic pain, muscle spasms, and headaches and is a favorite amongst the medicinal community.
Flowering period is approximately 9-10 weeks, can be grown both indoors and outdoors
If you Google ‘Lemon Cake’, you get around 324 million results. The top results show recipes for a delicious dessert that is easy to make. All you need is eggs, caster sugar, unsalted butter, a lemon, icing sugar, and flour. The Lemon Cake strain is also delicious and requires even fewer ingredients! Get the weed, rolling papers, a filter, and a lighter, and you’re good to go!
Incidentally, it is possible to enjoy marijuana cakes; they are considered a delicacy in Dutch coffee shops, so if you are ever in the Netherlands, make sure you treat yourself. Much like the Lemon Cake strain, these desserts taste so good that you want more, but be careful; both will knock you out if you overindulge.
What is the Lemon Cake Strain?
Lemon Cake weed is a strongly sativa-dominant hybrid and is a cross of Cheese and Lemon Skunk. The strain was bred by Heavyweight Seeds, who were clearly interested in conjuring up the most potent strain they could think of that still tasted amazing. In fact, Lemon Cake is often referred to as a ‘dankenstein’ strain, which means it is a cross of at least two dank strains.
Aside from the scent of sugar dipped lemons you get when you open the bag, Lemon Cake also has an extremely strong pine smell.
Lemon Cake’s parents are both known for their great taste, and their offspring follows suit. Users claim that the best way to consume this strain is to grind it up and smoke it in a vaping device which you heat up to a moderate temperature. Do this, and you should get a sharp taste of sweet lemon along with hints of cheese and pine.
Lemon Cake has the typical sativa shaped buds and is renowned for the thick coating of trichomes against a light green background.
Lemon Cake Strain Grow Info
If you’re aiming to grow your Lemon Cake seeds (we recommend getting them from Heavyweight Seeds if possible) indoors, it is best if you invest in exhaust fans or carbon air filters to grow this strain. This is because the pungent odor will fill a room. It is also a good idea to top it regularly and trim away unnecessary fan leaves to ensure light gets to the bottom of the plant.
It takes approximately 9-10 weeks for Lemon Cake to flower indoors and it should be ready for harvest by the middle of October if you grow it outdoors. Although you may be eager to cut it down, it is best if you wait as long as possible before harvesting it, and cure it properly to maximize the smell and taste. Lemon Cake can yield approximately 25 ounces per plant outdoors and 21-25 ounces per square meter planted indoors.
THC Content – Highest Test
The lowest THC content you are likely to find is 17%, but most cuts of Lemon Cake are a lot stronger. We have heard of tests that show a THC content of 25% which makes this strain one of the most potent around.
CBD Content – Highest Test
Lemon Cake’s CBD content is quite low, and you are unlikely to see a strain with more than 0.23% CBD.
What Can I Expect When I Use Lemon Cake Weed?
Some users suggest that Lemon Cake is the ideal Wake and Bake strain, but its potency suggests you need to be very careful if you use it in the morning. As long as you use a sensible amount, you should enjoy a clear-headed high and a jolt of energy that gets you moving soon after you wake up. If you find that it gives you a boost, perhaps you can use it to replace your morning cup of coffee.
The initial high provides you with a sense of happiness along with the focus and energy. Some users have reported a spike in creativity after using this strain so it could prove useful to writers and artists. You may also feel the effects of Lemon Cake in the body, but it should not slow you down.
Medical Benefits of Lemon Cake Marijuana
A lot of medical marijuana users like to create edibles (also called medibles) using Lemon Cake because of the fantastic taste coupled with the awesome effects. The large number of trichomes make this strain a prime candidate for concentrates but be careful if using solvents to extract THC and terpenes; this practice is illegal in many states without a license.
Most users prefer to vape Lemon Cake, and while you can use it to treat depression, it tends to be even more effective for individuals with stress and fatigue. However, unlike most weed which is used to combat stress, it is not a good idea to try Lemon Cake in the evening because its effects will only serve to energize you and make it harder to sleep. It is also used to treat chronic pain, muscle spasms, and headaches.
Possible Side Effects of Lemon Cake Weed
Lemon Cake is a potent strain, so expect the usual side effects such as cottonmouth, dry eyes, and dizziness. If your tolerance level is low and you use too much, paranoid thoughts are a possibility. If you overindulge and are way too stoned for your liking, take a cold shower and drink a cup of very strong coffee, along with a couple of glasses of water. If you live in a safe area and it is daytime, consider going for a run.
Final Thoughts on Lemon Cake Cannabis
Lemon Cake marijuana is a delicious Sativa-dominant hybrid with a very high THC content. It is best enjoyed with a vaporizer because of the flavor, but it is also a very popular option for lovers of concentrate.
It is easy to find Lemon Cake seeds, and it is a strain that even a novice should be able to grow. Use it if you need relief from stress or chronic pain, and it can also kick-start your day because of the energy boost it provides.
