Some say the taste of London Pound Cake is, in fact, superior to its smell. The flavors include fruity notes such as grapes, lemon, and berries, mixed with an earthy taste that some might describe as “woody” or “nutty.” This combination makes for a well-rounded sweetness that can be universally enjoyed.

Adverse Reactions

Those who do not regularly use marijuana might experience effects that are stronger than they’d prefer. This is why you should save this strain for evening use. Under the worst-case scenario, you might find that it sedates you a little bit more than expected, negating any possibility of being productive afterward. Even if you don’t become incredibly sleepy, it still has a very relaxing effect, which is not necessarily ideal for getting anything meaningful done. Unless you’re already well familiar with strong Indica strains,  be sure to try this strain in small doses at night, just to be sure.

The first thing to know about growing London Pound Cake cannabis plants is that the seeds are a bit hard to come by.  However, if you’re really determined, you can do it – but it’s going to cost you.

These seeds take about 12 weeks to grow. They are suitable for growing either indoors or outdoors. Don’t expect to find any feminized versions of seeds, so be prepared to “weed” out the males once you can identify them.

Because they are expensive to obtain, London Pound Cake weed remains one of the more mysterious cannabis plants to grow.  The effects of smoking this weed are well documented, but growing it is another thing altogether. As with most marijuana strains, expect more information to develop as others start to grow it.

  1. I got a baby at a local store. its like 8 inches tall right now. Outdoor grow, i am a noob. It’s my only plant and i’m going to need to keep it small. Ill have to top it around 3 ft tall. Its in a glass pot for now, about 2 gallons. I might just grow it in that or maybe move it to a bag in a month after it sets some roots. worried the glass will get to hot. but im a noob so who knows.

  2. Just picked up an Autoflower via Dark Heart Nursery. It’s about 8 inches tall and appears vigorous. Updates coming as it goes on 18/6 schedule

  3. Love it very strong
    I found 20 or so mature seeds in a bag of flowers. It was the fastest thing
    I’ve seen But All male. About 5
    Still have others. Now I wish I kept it going
    And collected some pollen and tried my hand in creating a strain.
    I would have crossed it with wedding poop
    London pound poop. Wow wedding poop also found seeds same way but these were 75 % female. They filling my little greenhouse. Along with orange push pop
    Zurple punch.
