      Pound Cake Strain Information

      Heavy-hitting and known for leaving you sinking into your couch, this strain is best used when you have nothing else planned. Its indica background makes it good at relieving pain and cramping, but it’s a little too sedative for daily use for some people. Try balancing it out with an energizing strain like Ghost Train Haze.
