Layer Cake

About this Hybrid Strain

Layer Cake is a popular, high-powered, indica-dominant cannabis strain that many cultivators have produced. Its origins are believed to be in the gardens of Swamp Boys Seeds. It comes from a three-way cross involving four strains. Technically speaking, a Layer Cake is defined as a cake made up of two or more layers with icing or another filler between them. Triangle Kush is mated with Skunk, which is then crossed with GMO (also known as Garlic Cookies), and finally crossed with Wedding Cake. Sounds like the definition of a layer cake to me, with a nice layer of kief as the filler. The Layer Cake nuggets are made up of bright orange clumps of pistils and fuzzy golden trichomes, over chunky dense fern-green leaves. Using a tray underneath when handling the buds is recommended, as the kief content can be extremely high.

The odor from Layer Cake is pungent, like old cheese mixed with cedar wood. Combusting this strain tastes like it smells, only with a pleasantly buttery aftertaste. Many say this strain is in high demand among medical consumers with PTSD, anxiety, cramps, and chronic pain due to its high THC content, routinely testing over 25%. Users report a narcotic-like body buzz and blissful psychoactive euphoria. Perhaps the reason Layer Cake is most beloved, is how effective users say it is without a reputation for sending them in a hopeless state of couch-lock. Mentally, users report staying relatively sharp with adequate amounts of motivation. This makes it an anomaly among high-powered Indicas. Whether it is before dinner or the gym, many recommend this versatile hybrid for making the user happy, hungry, and pain-free. Next time you're in the mood for a high powered Indica, that can double as a nightcap or a wake and bake strain, you might reach for some Layer Cake.
