Lava Cake Strain Overview

Infusing the genetics of Grape Pie and Thin Mint GSC proved to be an excellent idea for the cannabis breeders at Compound Genetics. Lava Cake is a mighty cultivar that is exquisitely relaxing, aesthetically pleasing, and sweet-smelling. 

You may find yourself melting into the sofa after a few puffs of this dessert-like strain, which medical cannabis patients commonly use to reduce anxiety, chronic pain, and stress. Verdant green and lavender purple shades are offset by sparkling globs of THC that encapsulate the plant’s bulbous nugs.

Lava Cake Strain Effects & Common Usage

The Lava Cake strain is a euphoric yet relaxing choice. It can be loaded with up to 22% THC, which may increase sedation. With the addition of caryophyllene, humulene, myrcene, limonene, and geraniol, this cultivar may promote an array of effects, including stress, anxiety, and pain relief.

Relaxation. Limonene and caryophyllene may all promote feelings of relaxation.

Euphoric. THC may promote euphoria, likely by promoting the release of dopamine

Sleepy. High levels of THC and the presence of the sedating terpene myrcene may guarantee a good night’s sleep.

Anxiety. THC may promote anti-anxiety effects in small doses.

Pain. Along with the pain-relieving potential of THC, the terpenes caryophyllene, humulene, and myrcene have demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties and may help with pain relief.

Stress. The stress-relieving potential of limonene may be attributed to its influence on mood disorders such as anxiety.

Lava Cake Strain Dosage Recommendations

New consumers should tread carefully with this high-THC strain since it may induce feelings of paranoia and dizziness if you consume too much. Start with 1-2 puffs, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and increase as necessary. 

The right dosage can vary greatly from one user to the next. If you have questions about finding the right dosage or product type for your needs, consider consulting with a medical cannabis doctor, or you can request a consultation with NuggMD’s Cannabis Concierge.
