After reviewing and enjoying the newly released Cultivate strains Oreoz and Monkey Spunk from Ieso, I looked forward to reviewing the next two strains Jungle Cake and LA Kush Cake. This review is for the later.
LA Kush Cake (also known as Los Angeles Kush Cake and LA Kush Cake #11) is an indica-leaning hybrid cross of Wedding Cake and Kush Mints. This eighth tested at 20.08% THCa, 0.75% THC, 0.44% CBGa, and 21.27% total cannabinoids. The leading terpene by far was β-myrcene, followed by limonene, β-caryophyllene, and linalool. The next three secondary terpenes included α-humulene, β-pinene, and guaiol.
The thick dense thumb-sized buds were dark-green and purple and frosted with creamy trichomes. The aroma carried notes of vanilla, earthy gas, minty skunk, and kushy pine.
The main flavor was a sweet vanilla cake with heavy notes of earthy mint, musky diesel, creamy skunk, and kushy pine. The inhale hit first with the sweet cake and vanilla, and on the back end, the earthy mint and diesel appeared.
The exhale flavors were reversed with the mint, diesel, mint, and skunk on the front end and a heavy creamy vanilla, sugar, and cake on the finish. The creamy vanilla and cake flavors coated the inside of the mouth, leaving me wanting another hit.
Though listed as an indica-leaning hybrid, the effects matched more with the traditional evenly balanced hybrid. The head high, especially for the first half of the buzz, was cerebral, clearheaded, and relatively focused. Though cerebral, the head high also carried a tranquility and mental relaxation that allowed me to decompress and put aside earlier stressors of the day.
The body buzz also delivered a relaxing and tranquil effect that set my body muscle aches at ease. I was able to complete physical tasks as well as relax and chill on the couch without sedation or tiredness kicking in. Though potent, neither the head high nor body buzz was overwhelming.
I medicated with LA Kush Cake mostly in the afternoon, evening, and early night. The hybrid style buzz fit well with pretty much any relaxed social event or home activity, as well as binging television, gaming, gardening, cooking, etc. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, click here.
