Medical Conditions Layer Cake Can Help

Marijuana can help people live a better quality of life by helping them overcome certain medical conditions or at least making them manageable. The long-term impacts of marijuana are very minimal when compared to long-term medication that could have huge side effects when it is stopped. Layer Cake can help with the following medical conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Chronic Pain
  • Cramps
  • Depression
  • Mood Swings
  • Stress

The misconception that some people have is that CBD is the only compound that has medical benefits. THC also has medical benefits but has been demonized by politicians as it makes a consumer high. Consulting a doctor before going off of any medication is imperative. Making the switch to cannabis is one that people rarely regret.

Layer Cake Strain Price

Layer cake strain price on average is $10-$15 per gram, $45-63 per 1/8th oz, $96-$112 per 1/4 oz, and $200-$216 per 1/2 oz.

Layer Cake Strain Seeds

Layer Cake seeds can be found online at various seed banks such as Neptune Seed Banks. 

Shipping of cannabis seeds to the USA is not federally legal yet although some seed banks send them regardless.

It is a much better idea to try to find a dispensary or cannabis grower with seeds in your local area to avoid potential penalties. Or even better, use clones from a healthy marijuana plant and not weed seeds.
