Lava Cake Strain

Doesn’t the thought of a warm, dark chocolate lava cake just make your mouth water? Well, cannabis fans tend to feel the same way when they hear about the Lava Cake strain. This delicious strain was created from the crossing of Thin Mint GSC and Grape Pie. With its heavy indica content, Lava Cake is the perfect treat at the end of your day, helping relax the mind and body into a deep state of bliss.


Lava Cake is an excellent strain for evenings or lazy days when you don’t have much to do. At the onset of the high, you’ll be able to perceive this strain’s sativa side in the form of a warm cerebral rush. You may feel a slight increase in energy as well as creativity levels after smoking the Lava Cake strain, but this will slowly fade away and leave you with a deep sense of relaxation.

As the high progresses, your body will begin to relax, and your mind will drift into a state of hazy introspection. Many users report some euphoria with this strain, felt in both the mind and body. Lava Cake is also known to give you the munchies, so keep some of your favorite snacks on hand!

Appearance and Flavor

The Lava Cake strain produces large, dense nugs that are olive green in color and have a thick coating of milky white trichomes across the surface. As you can presume, the flavor of Lava Cake is strong on chocolate and a nutty sweetness, mixed with some earthy and herbal notes. On the exhale, you’ll even be able to perceive a slight mintiness, thanks to its parent strain, Thin Mints GSC. As you’re breaking this strain down, a light and sweet aroma will fill the space, reminiscent of fruit, fresh herbs, and cocoa beans.

Medical Benefits

Lava Cake is most commonly used as a recreational strain, but it also has some medical benefits. This strain can help people with anxiety and depression feel better emotionally and calm their nerves. As the experience goes on, both the user’s mind and body will feel more and more relaxed.

Similar to the sensation of being cozy under a weighted blanket, Lava Cake can help the user decompress and let go of any stress. This strain can also help people with migraines or less severe headaches because it can relieve pain and swelling. Lava cake is great for people who need to get their appetite back or who are sick and have stomach pain.


The Lava Cake strain is fairly rare in terms of growing, but those who have successfully grown it say that it is fairly easy and pays off well. The plants themselves grow fairly short and bushy, given how indica-heavy they are. Lava Cake plants must be trimmed on a regular basis to ensure proper airflow. The plants are also susceptible to several types of mites, so make sure you have a plan in place to keep them protected in that sense.

This strain can be grown indoors or outdoors and has a flowering period of about 9 to 10 weeks. When grown indoors, you can expect your Lava Cake plants to yield around 12 to 16 ounces per square meter. When harvest time comes around in late October, you can expect up to 18 ounces from your outdoor plants.
