It’s easy to tell when Lava Cake weed starts to kick in. The head high begins as a buzz of energy that quickly slips into the rest of the body. This effect is joined by euphoria and mental stamina that evolves into a creative, chill kind of introspection as the body buzz comes on. It never leads to sleepiness, making it an excellent choice for long, chill evenings.
As the body high builds, the Lava Cake strain helps users relax completely, both mentally and physically. Muscles loosen, tensions ease, and aches and pains fade away. The body buzz won’t keep you locked to the couch, but it won’t force you to move, either. Instead, users remain awake and chill all night, perfect for unwinding after a long day at work.
The first whiff of Lava Cake will make your mouth water. It’s a lightly fruity scent with hints of pine and nuts, like a delicious trail mix. The pine scent develops into a fresh, minty note that’s reminiscent of the Thin Mint GSC heritage.
When you first taste Lava Cake weed, you’ll understand the name. The nutty, chocolate flavor is rich and almost fruity. The exhale is where the mint comes out in force, keeping the experience light and fresh.
As with many indica strains, some users report moderate dry mouth and eyes when smoking this strain. This can be mitigated by keeping eyedrops or a glass of water nearby. Beyond that, the biggest potential reactions are sleepiness and paranoia. Both go hand-in-hand with over-consumption or new users pushing their limits. By moderating use and understanding personal limits, it’s easy to keep the Lava Cake experience smooth, pleasant, and worry-free.
Indica hybrids are ideal for therapeutic use, and Lava Cake is no exception. Its blend of deep relaxation with just a pinch of sativa energy makes it helpful for everything from chronic pain to stress.
When it comes to mental effects, the Lava Cake cannabis strain offers therapeutic benefits as well. The euphoria of the head high helps calm anxious thoughts, high heart rates, and unease. This same effect can help with PTSD, depression, or OCD by helping dismiss despair or gloom, replacing it with a gentle bliss.
Lava Cake can also melt away chronic stress. Stress-causing worries are put into their perspective and float away, letting the user focus on other things. Meanwhile, a body high kicks in to relieve physical symptoms. The strain also relaxes the muscles, helping to calm tension, headaches, and pain.
Chronic pain sufferers appreciate the anti-inflammatory properties of Lava Cake for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, cancer pain, or fibromyalgia. Even insomniacs will find Lava Cake helpful. While it doesn’t make users sleepy, it does help mute the stresses and distractions that keep people awake. As the high winds down, so do the users, and Lava Cake ushers them off to a restful sleep.
Finding someone who’s already grown Lava Cake is tricky because this is a relatively rare strain. However, those who have grown the lava cake strain say it is a pleasant, indica-dominant strain to grow. The indica genes lead to a bushier plant that thrives in lots of light. Plants are reported to reach five to seven feet high, depending on the light exposure.
Many indica strains, Lava Cake included, respond very well to low-stress training. They are bushy, to begin with, so it’s easy to use their natural traits to get better harvests. Options like Screen of Green growing or trellising can help spread out the bud sites for maximum light exposure. That will help boost harvests to the absolute maximum the plant can provide.
Lollipopping your plants is also a great option to improve Lava Cake harvests. By trimming extra leaves toward the bottom of the branches helps keep airflow regular throughout the plant. This prevents pests and diseases from building a home in the heart of your harvest. In particular, powdery mildew and spider mites love the crowded, leafy interiors of indica plants. Lollipopping the stems will keep them from ruining your rare bud.
When you’re growing Lava Cake indoors, it’s generally a 9 week harvest period. Upon harvest, look for high yields, between 10 and 16 ounces per square meter.
Northern hemisphere growers should look for Lava Cake to be ready for harvest in early October. It thrives in climates that keep warmer weather through the end of their lifespan. Look for 14-18 ounces per plant at the time of harvest.
