Classic desserts are a weakness for anyone with a sweet tooth because there’s nothing better than a recently baked cake to leave a bad day behind. However, it doesn’t always have to be a sweet treat. The Lemon Pound Cake strain can do precisely the same and more.

Fortunately, this intense cannabis strain can improve your mood while you enjoy its pleasant taste and its potent 25% THC content. The Lemon Pound Cake strain elevates the spirit and restores energy. Although we don’t carry this specific strain, check out our other lemon-forward-flavored flowers.

Key Takeaways

  • The Lemon Pound Cake strain is a cross between Lemon Skunk and a potent Cheese strain, combining sativa and indica characteristics from its parent strains.
  • The Lemon Pound Cake strain is notable for its unique terpene composition, which includes humulene, caryophyllene, and limonene.
  • These terpenes contribute to the strain's distinctive aroma and flavor profile, which is described as a mix of citrus and vanilla with an effervescent lemon taste and a bread-like aftertaste.
  • The presence of these terpenes not only defines its flavor but also its effects, such as mood elevation and stress relief.
  • The strain has a flowering time of 60–65 days and can yield up to 800 grams per plant outdoors and 600–700 grams per square meter indoors.


The Lemon Pound Cake strain has buds like spades coated in tons of dark orange pistils and trichomes, giving it a fuzzy look. This strain, with a musky cheese undertone, emits an aromatic citrus fragrance along with vanilla tones.

The flavor in the vape is effervescent lemon with an aftertaste similar to bread. The Lemon Pound Cake strain has three dominant terpenes in its trichomes that give it its characteristic name.

Humulene gives subtle earthy, woody, and spicy notes to this strain and is an effective anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and appetite suppressant. Then, caryophyllene contributes the spicy, funky, warm aroma, similar to cinnamon and cloves, and is best for stress and anxiety relief. And, for obvious reasons, limonene is commonly associated with fruity and citrus aromas in this strain. This terpene is great for mood elevation and stress relief.


The Lemon Pound Cake strain hits you with an eye-opening high that gets you up and moving. This strain has a cheerful effect on both mind and body, capping it all with a sense of satisfaction.

While in that euphoric state, you experience a boost in energy and concentration. At this stage, some users can notice an improvement in creativity, with consequences that contribute to any creative venture.

The Lemon Pound Cake strain may also help with chronic stress, depression, nausea or appetite loss, chronic fatigue, and headaches or migraines due to the benefits mentioned above and its high 19–25% THC level.

Indeed, many users compare it to drinking a caffeinated beverage. However, like drinking too much coffee, this weed strain may cause adverse effects like cotton mouth, dry eyes, feeling dizzy, and even paranoia.

Lemon Pound Cake Strain Genetics

Due to the modifications made to this strain, breeder-specific variations exist. That’s why the Lemon Pound Cake strain is also known as Lemon Cake and Lemon Cheesecake. This strain is a cross of Lemon Skunk and a dangerously potent Cheese strain.

Heavyweight Genetics, a European company, combined two prominent strains with clashing characteristics to give life to Lemon Pound Cake.

Lemon Skunk is the award-winning descendant of two different Skunk phenotypes selected for their tart lemon characteristics with a 60:40 sativa-dominant ratio. Although the taste is evocative of sweet lemons and other citrus fruits, the fragrance is skunky and sweet.

This is a potent strain, with THC levels exceeding 22% in some reports. Lemon Skunk delivers a trippy, peppy cerebral high that comes with an energy boost and inspiration, a shot of joy, and a euphoric blast. It's an uplifting experience, but it could make you lazy.

Cheese is a U.K. indica-dominant hybrid, named for its sharply sour scent. It's popular for its distinctive taste and reliable efficacy. Cheese tastes and smells like hard cheddar.

The strain is said to strike hard and quickly with a THC content ranging from 15 to 20%, despite being indica-dominant. Its intense body-numbing high is matched by intense euphoria. It may also make you more creative, besides causing sedation and leading to a couch lock.

Growth Information

The Lemon Pound Cake strain vegetation period can be kept to a minimum as growth is so vigorous, but step back once the flowering cycle has begun. This strain is robust, producing huge colas covered with pistils along each internode. You may need to support the giant buds’ sheer weight, which will overwhelm the branches.

Flowering Time

  • 6065 days


  • Outdoor: Up to 800g per plant
  • Indoor: 600700gr/m2


If you’re interested in growing your own Lemon Pound Cake strain, you can purchase its feminized seeds from its original breeder, Heavyweight Genetics, here at Seedsman.

When you look for the Lemon Pound Cake strain in stores, it is hard to choose the correct strain as there are multiple variations.

Botany Farms offers an excellent option with similar features, like flavor or effects. Suver Haze is a sativa with a rich terpene profile, able to calm your mind while keeping you alert and focused.

The terpenes create an aromatic flavor profile of ripe berries, sweet syrup, and black pepper undertones. With a total of 14.5% cannabinoids, Suver Haze is a best seller due to its consistent effects and agreeable smoke.
