Layer Cake is an Indica-dominant hybrid marijuana strain. It is cultivated by many different cultivators. However, its origin can be attributed to Swamp Boys Seeds. The Layer Cake strain has four parent strains. These are Triangle Kush, Skunk, GMO, and Wedding Cake. The first two are crossed at the beginning, and then the resulting strain is crossed with GMO and then with Wedding Cake. This complex layering is what gives the strain its name.

This weed has a high THC content, averaging at over 25%. Such a high THC value makes this cannabis suited more to experienced users. It contains Limonene as the primary terpene and has a pungent aroma.
