The London Pound Cake strain has a name that checks out. As an indica-dominant strain with potentially heavy-hitting effects, this strain may pound you right to sleep or into a deep couch-locked state. This strain rose into tremendous popularity due to the cut that Cookies grew in California.

London Pound Cake Strain

Also known as Pound Cake, this strain was originally crafted by Spain-based breeder Heavyweight Seeds. They crossed a classified indica with the widely famous Sunset Sherbet strain. Its parent, that’s also known as Sunset Sherbert, is also an indica-dominant strain that is known for producing calming and sedative effects.

With this fruity strain in its genetic history, London Pound Cake’s lineage also includes the world-renowned Girl Scout Cookies as well as Pink Panties. Both of these strains lend potentially balanced effects to their offspring, such as euphoria, cerebral energy, and a carefree state of mind. For this reason, medical consumers may find relief from anxiety, depression, and insomnia; while recreational users may find a lift in motivation and an urge to socialize in a relaxed manner.

Cannabinoids & Terpenes

London Pound Cake has a medium-high potency level, typically sitting around 21% THC. This strain also sees high levels of CBG, sitting around 1%. CBG is a cannabinoid that is shown to have potential therapeutic effects, such as pain relief, and anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. In fact, research has shown that CBG may be a great aid in relieving inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Huntington’s Disease, Glaucoma, and fighting cancer cells.

Further, London Pound Cake’s most prominent terpene is limonene. This lends the flower a citrus flavor and aroma, most notably lemon. Additionally, it adds to the strain’s potential benefits. Studies on limonene have shown that it may contribute to an elevated mood and stress relief, as well as offer antifungal and antibacterial properties. It may even help relieve heartburn and gastric reflux.
