Effects & Usage



A sweet symphony of Sativa effects, Lemon Cake, also known as Lemon Pound Cake and Lemon Cheesecake, is celebrated for its uplifting properties. With its potency rated between 16% and 20% THC, it is particularly effective for those seeking relief from the grip of anxiety, pain, and depressive moods. The strain also features trace amounts of other cannabinoids like cannabidiol and cannabigerol.


The onset of Lemon Cake’s delight is immediate and bright, infusing users with a sense of happiness that seems to clear the mind and invigorate the body. This makes it an excellent selection for anyone looking to spark a wave of creativity and a focused yet relaxed approach to the tasks at hand.

Lemon Cake’s invigorating effects have been likened to a caffeinated cup of coffee, providing a motivational boost that can help tackle the to-do list with a newfound zest.

Users often feel energetic, uplifted, and talkative after consuming Lemon Cake. It’s a good flower to smoke before a night out or a meeting with friends.


Lemon Cake may help alleviate muscle spasms and headaches. This strain is a potent remedy to counteract fatigue, making it a versatile player in therapeutic strains. In addition, people prone to stress, anxiety, and depression may find some relief in this dessert-like cultivar.

Side effects

While Lemon Cake is a confection of Sativa goodness, it can have downsides. Some users may experience dizziness, dry mouth, or a touch of anxiety, particularly with higher doses or for those new to high-THC strains. As with any potent variety, moderation is key to enjoying the full breadth of benefits.

Taste & Smell


The essence of Lemon Cake is as tantalizing to the palate as it is to the olfactory senses. A delicate blend of sweet and sour citrus notes is complemented by hints of vanilla and a spicy aftertaste, often reminding of a warm evening by the fire with a cup of vanilla cocoa. A seasoned nose can also detect undertones of pungent cheese – a testament to its parents. 

Visually, it boasts dark forest green buds threaded with dark orange pistils and a thick coat of white trichomes, embodying the zest of its namesake​.

If Lemon Cake’s zinginess has touched a nerve, you may also like Lemon Kush.



Lemon Cake has its roots in a rich lineage, being a cross of Lemon Skunk and Cheese. Bred by Heavyweight Seeds – the name behind other popular strains like Strawberry Cake and Budzilla – it’s a cultivar that encapsulates the zing of citrus and the robustness of Cheese, offering a flavour profile as complex as its genetic heritage.

Growing conditions

Cultivation of Lemon Cake is a grower’s delight, providing a substantial yield in indoor and outdoor settings. It requires a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate when grown outdoors.

Indoor cultivators should be prepared for a flowering time of 9 to 10 weeks, with the promise of around 600 to 700 grams of flower per plant. Due to its pungent nature, discretion in growing may require additional measures such as carbon air filters.
