We all love eating ice cream, don’t we? Well, some breeders at Paradise Seeds loved it so much that they’ve decided to turn it into marijuana. Ever since, this pot became extremely popular among users and growers, especially since the Ice Cream strain lineage is a complete mystery. Even so, some believe that the combo includes parents like LA Kush and Chemdog, but this has never been confirmed. The Ice Cream strain has an amazing taste, scent, plus the ability to make you happy. 16-19% THC in its content make this strain suitable even for inexperienced users.

According to the breeders, the Ice Cream weed strain is 100% Indica, which makes for an equal body and head buzz all at once. Since this combo did quite well for the company, it has won several awards, including the awards at the Amsterdam Highlife Cannabis Cup in 2008 and 2009.

Ice Cream Strain Flavors

The Ice Cream strain has nice taste and smell. Upon inhaling, you will detect a blueberry and candy aroma, mixed with some vanilla. Carrying over to the flavor, you’ll detect honey-like taste mixed with some nuts. Without any doubt, this is where the pot has gotten its name. Like the frozen treat, this weed has the creaminess that will melt in your mouth when you smoke or vape the pot.

Growing Review

Originally, the seeds of this plant were designed for indoor growing. This strain thrives in an open environment, but don’t expect the yield to be much bigger if you choose to grow it outdoors. In fact, since temperature and humidity are crucial for its growth, it’s best to grow this plant indoors with hydroponics and the Sea of Green technique.

Speaking of temperature, this plant thrives in dry and warm environments and has relatively short branches and leaves. Even so, it makes for easy growth because it’s highly resistant and responds well to high-stress techniques like topping.

Cultivators grade the seeds of this weed as A+. Ice Cream cannabis is also known as the Ferrari of strains because it will grow and flower rather fast. The period of growth is 8 to 9 weeks.

Ice Cream Strain Cannabinoids

THC 17.5 - 20% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.22 - 0.56% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.16 - 0.94% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.05 - 2.16% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.19 - 0.22% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.44 - 1.88% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

Ice Cream Terpene Profile

Carene 0.15% Carene (also known as Delta-3 carene) is a terpene found in rosemary, lemons, pines, and cedars, offering citrusy and cypress aroma. Studies on mice showed that carene provides anti-inflammatory effects, as well as promotes bone health and chronic pain relief.
Pinene 0.21% Pinene is one of the most widespread terpenes in nature, found in pine trees, basil, nutmeg, parsley, and rosemary. Cannabis containing terpene (alpha-pinene or α-pinene) boasts a strong pine scent. Pinene is responsible for anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and anti-anxiety effects.
Ocimene 0.21% Ocimene (derived from the Ancient Greek word Ocimum meaning basil) is a terpene with sweet and herbaceous flavors, also boasting citrusy and woody undertones. Naturally, ocimene occurs in mint, parsley, orchids, hops, kumquats, mangoes, basil, bergamot, lavender, and pepper. Offers antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties.
Terpineol 0.19% Terpineol (also known as alpha-terpineol or a-terpineol) is a terpene naturally occurring in more than 150 plants, including lilacs, lime blossoms, eucalyptus sap, and pines. Among the therapeutic qualities are anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antitumor, and antimicrobial. In cannabis, terpineol boasts the distinctive pine smoke aroma and causes a relaxing, sedative effect.
Phellandrene 0.1% Phellandrene (also known as alpha- and beta-phellandrene) is one of the rare terpenes found in cannabis with antihyperalgesic and antidepressive properties. Phellandrene contributes to a minty, woody, and mildly citrus aroma in cannabis. Previously confused with limonene and pinene, phellandrene was eventually distinguished as a separate terpene common for eucalyptus. Also, it could be found in mint, dill, black pepper, cinnamon, parsley, pine, and lavender.
Caryophyllene 0.15% Caryophyllene (also known as beta or b caryophyllene) is a terpene found in many herbs and spices, such as black pepper, basil, rosemary, and oregano. Cannabis high in caryophyllene delivers a strong spicy, peppery aroma, resembling cinnamon and cloves. Caryophyllene offers potent anti-inflammatory and sedative effects.
Total terpenes content 1.01%

Indicas help me cope with depression and Ice Cream is one of my favs. The stuff is award-winning and certainly worth trying. Its uplifting and gives energetic giggles. Gives intense high so Im careful on dosing it (the pack I bought has 18%THC).

We smoked a little joint with a friend. The head and body high was very strong. We both felt like we were levitating. Im a novice to weed and these effects scared me. To sum up my experience: the kush is for vets and its better used at nighttime. Im no

I thought it would help with my anxiety but it made me more paranoid about everything. Too strong for me.

Definitely a strain with something for everyone. Very strong aroma in flower, the nugs are compact and dense, but don’t expect huge colas. The plant itself is a perfect size for indoors, and almost no stretch.. As far as the’s one of the best I have had, and is unique to a euphoric high, almost like a narcotic high(like Oxy-Cotton) but uplifting, and happy, as I was smiling like an idiot the whole time. Also has a strong flavor(s) of berry/vanilla which, and went down smooth on the inhale. I would recommend to grab some of these seeds to any grower, as i found the consumption, and high amazingly surprising, and the feel good sensations are off the chart. JUST REALLY GOOD SMOKE!

Nice body buzz, there is no too much of anything. Taste is floral, nothing too special. I recommend it if you want something classic - might want to keep looking if you want some other stuff.

The smooth smoke is easy on my lungs and has a great aroma too.

This strain has high THC level making it very potent. Would recommend first users to go easy on it. It may leave you locked to your couch or even feeling tingly with worse side effects. But you wouldn’t want to miss this great strain.

You can grow the Ice Cream strains both indoors and outdoors. The Ice Cream strains bear flowers by the 55th to the 60th days after plantations. The best time to harvest is in the month of October. The best technique used to grow this strain is the sea of green technique.
