London Pound Cake by Mendocino Grasslands is a strong indica-leaning hybrid that was created by crossing Sunset Sherbet with an unnamed indica strain.
Originally bred by Cookies, LPC has become quite a popular flavor among California connoisseurs and this batch was grown outdoor in full sun, although you might not be able to tell the difference because it was certainly comparable to a lot of indoor cannabis in terms of quality. The effects are potent and tend to lean more toward the indica side, even though it ultimately felt like a fairly balanced hybrid overall.
Let’s see how this compares to other California strains like Cherry Do Si Do from Yada Yada.

Packaged in a small glass jar, the buds were quite fresh upon opening, somewhat small in size but also packing a strong and pleasant earthy lemon odor. Obvious notes of citrus and berry are present and it instantly made my taste buds want to sample the flavor.
In terms of size, the buds were small and tight, not super dense but with enough body to break up nicely and stay intact without crumbling apart. It was also quite sticky, which made it difficult to grind, and saturated with small crystals and trichomes. You can wash your hands twice after rolling this weed and your fingers will still be stuck together.
Very citrusy. Very sweet. Other than the lemon and fruitiness there’s definite notes of cake and even a hint of vanilla, underscored with a light bit of earthiness to balance the flavor blend. Quite a pleasant taste experience for those who prefer a lighter, fruitier profile that still has a bit of a funky kick to it.
Our container was part of lot number MGL1221-LPC with a package date of April 11, 2022. The THC content was listed at 30.26% and product weight at 4.20 grams, so I expected this bud to pack a decent punch and it did not let me down in that department. Initially there’s a wave that brings on the body high, but it quickly becomes rather heady as well. It’s a very thoughtful, contemplative type of buzz, but also quite relaxing and allows you to wind down and let your mind wander. I would recommend it for reading, homework, or even just a post-workout chill session. Great for creative activities and light productivity due to the fact that the indica effects aren’t too overpowering and won’t knock you out completely.
