Shaved Ice cannabis is a rare Indica-dominant hybrid with 80% Indica and 20% Sativa genes. There is a significant variation in the THC content brought by this phenotype to the table. The level of tetrahydrocannabinol can vary from an average of 17% to a pretty potent 24%. By modern-day marijuana standards, it is pretty strong. The concentration of cannabinoids found in the plant, including cannabidiol, is as follows:

  • CBD 0.6-0.85%
  • CBC 0.09-0.2%
  • CBG 0.57-0.74%
