Named for its insanely delicious flavor, London Pound Cake is an indica dominant hybrid that packs a sweet, berry and grape flavor and is accented by its citrusy, earthy aroma. It’s probably my favorite flower strain at the moment and you’ll see why.

ORIGINS

The London Pound Cake strain despite the name comes from Northern California breeder Flow Kana. They pride themselves on being the first sustainable, sungrown cannabis brand to represent California’s most special micro-climates and their small farmer ecosystems. Flow Kana partners with premier artisan farmers in The Emerald Triangle who focus on small batch, boutique strains. Flow Kana’s products are available throughout the Golden State. London Pound Cake results from a cross between Sunset Sherbet and another hybrid strain.

APPEARANCE AND AROMA


The nugs of the London Pound Cake strain are dense, but soft. The nugs easily break up with only a little pressure. I don’t find a grinder to be necessary with London Pound Cake. There’s a very light dusting of kief on the bud, but not so substantial that I’d try to keep it, unless I plan on consuming a lot of the same strain. London Pound Cake smells fresh and citrusy. I’ve learned from experience that oftentimes the nicest smelling bud is the strongest. The same is true in this instance with the London Pound Cake strain.

EFFECTS AND USES

The batch of the London Pound Cake strain that I got tested at 19.93% THC and 0.05% or 2mg CBD. I first tried London Pound Cake in a blunt. It’d been about 5 hours since I last smoked and I felt the effects of the other strain wearing off. The effects of London Pound Cake leave consumers feeling tired, relaxed, uplifted, creative, and calm. I like this strain the most as a nighttime strain because if I happen to feel too lethargic or sluggish, I can always go to sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. My concentration is not the best when using this strain. Oftentimes I’ll get stuck in the same position for unknown lengths of time while smoking this or after smoking this strain. My focus could generally be reined in by an interesting video on YouTube. If it had to do with food, fashion, or cartoons, I had good ability to focus and comprehend. If it was a science video or any type of interview involving Elon Musk, I’d be lost within 10 minutes. I normally love hearing Elon Musk speak on any topic, but the London Pound Cake strain doesn’t allow for me to comprehend his ideas and thought processes nearly as well as I could sober.
