Lava Cake Cannabis Strain Review

Lava Cake is an indica-dominant hybrid marijuana strain renowned for its deeply relaxing and sedating effects. This cross between Grape Pie and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies is the creation of breeder Seed Junky Genetics. With a moderate-to-high THC level averaging around 17-25%, Lava Cake’s effects come on heavily, immobilizing both mind and body in tranquilized bliss.

True to its name, the Lava Cake high “bakes” users by wrapping them in a warm, comforting mental and physical buzz. It starts with a tingly head rush that puts the mind at ease before working its magic on the body. Soothing waves pass from head to toe, relaxing muscles and unleashing tension along the way. Before they know it, users are “cooked” – melted into a couchlocked state of complete calm. The entire ride lasts roughly 2 hours.

Lava Cake’s buds give off a sweet, dessert-like terpene profile with herbal earthy undertones. Flavors impress as well with notes of nutty cookie dough on the inhale and rich mocha coffee creaminess on the exhale. Reviewers praise Lava Cake’s smooth smoke that isn’t too harsh on the lungs and leaves a pleasant aftertaste. Buds have a classic OG look, dense as rocks with a generous coat of crystal trichomes.

In the medical marijuana field, the heavily sedating properties of Lava Cake make it ideal for managing insomnia and chronic pain. Just a few hits provide hours of deep, uninterrupted sleep. The body relaxation also works wonders against arthritis, cramps, neuropathy, headaches and muscle spasms. As it lifts moods and banishes stress, Lava Cake also alleviates anxiety and PTSD. However, its substantial sedation makes this bud best suited for nighttime use only when heavy relaxation is acceptable.  

Outside its native California, Lava Cake and its scrumptious terpene profile have caught on in legal medical states like Oklahoma. The state’s medical marijuana dispensaries frequently feature this strain on shelves and menus because its powerful sedative qualities provide welcomed relief to patients managing uncomfortable conditions. It also gives OK patients an affordable alternative to expensive pharmaceutical sedatives.  

While great for relaxing at home, Lava Cake’s sheer potency limits its usefulness for social gatherings or daytime activities – new consumers should beware! Stick to 1-2 hits and make sure the schedule is clear. However, epic binge-watching sessions, solo hobbies like reading or gaming, and lazy days off work pair perfectly with waves of Lava Cake relaxation. After all, everyone needs some stress-free couchlock now and then!

Always follow all Oklahoma Marijuana laws when buying your cannabis products, and only from OMMA licensed dispensaries.
