Ice cream, ice drop, ten centavo lollipops… the cheerleaders of a couple of decades ago chant during a school game. Remember the times you were in high school? Remember how it feels when you were discovering new things, as well as the opposite sex?
If you have never tried Ice before, that is what it is like. As this balanced hybrid starts to kick in, you soon find yourself discovering new levels of mental and physical body high. Let Ice bring back the same feelings of those good old times.
The breeder, Nirvana Seeds, did not pick random strains and crossed them to come up with a new strain. Instead, they spent considerable time going through thousands of strains to finally decide on four strains. Yes, most cannabis hybrids are 2-way crosses, with some being 3-way crosses. Ice cannabis strain is a cross of 4 strains.
Looking at the 4 strains – Skunk #1, Afghani, Northern Lights, and Shiva, it is fascinating to see how impressive the lineage of Ice is, considering its parents are all like royalties in the world of cannabis.

Can Ice live up to its lineage? Once you use this hybrid, it begins by delivering a cerebral high that heightens your senses and focus. As the physical body high creeps in, you soon find yourself feeling relaxed. The balanced blend of highs uplifts your spirit making you more social and talkative. This makes Ice a great strain for social gatherings.
Be warned, though, that once you start to smoke too much, it could also make one feel lazy. For some people, they might experience feeling sleepy which makes Ice a good strain to use at the end of the day. But for others, they might experience feeling a little hungry.
Ice cannabis has a pungent chemical odor that is offset by a spicy and earthy tone. Most likely, you should find this fragrance agreeable. Growing it indoor not only gives you a better yield than outdoor but if the odor is a concern, then having an indoor growing tent should hide its smell.
How do you feel about sniffing petrol, let alone putting it in your mouth? We think that is what you are going to do with Ice because while it has a peppery chemical taste, it is also offset by the taste of berry.
In a perfect world, there would be no side effects or negative reactions to the use of cannabis. But there is no such thing as a perfect strain. All cannabis might cause smokers to feel their mouth and eyes drying, and Ice cannabis strain is no different.
Drinking lots of water should be able to minimize the negative reactions. But once a person overuses, then there are other possible negative reactions such as a mild headache, momentary dizziness, or a brief period of paranoia. Even if it is rare, always remember to have the self-discipline to indulge within limits of one’s tolerance.
One of the reasons why cannabis is useful for its medicinal values is that it does help in alleviating the symptoms of certain health conditions or illnesses. Unfortunately, with a low CBD level, it is not the strain that is suitable for those who have epilepsy or seizure. On the other hand, it has shown to be effective for mild pain relief.
The balance mental and physical high also sets the tone for a user to feel relaxed, which then reduces the stress level, hence it could be useful also for those who are suffering from depression.
For some people, the other medical benefits of Ice are in stimulating a good appetite, and this should be beneficial in dealing with cachexia and anorexia. Furthermore, it is also likely that as the effects fade, users could feel tired. If such is the case, then it helps in promoting a better quality of sleep.
Ice cannabis strain can be grown outdoor in a Mediterranean climate and could grow as tall as 6 feet. However, the yield outdoor is lower than when grown indoor. That is because this plant thrives extremely well when using hydroponics and the Sea of Green (SOG) method. Not only would you have shortened the flowering time, but this also increases the output.
For beginners in growing plants, Ice happens to be one of the easier plants to grow too. If you are thinking of getting started, this is one of the strains you should consider.
Ice cannabis plant is easy to grow and it gives you a lot of reasons to be happy when you harvest it in 9 to 11 weeks. And when we say a lot, that is because it should give you around 16 to 22 ounces per square meter.
To grow Ice outdoor, take into consideration the 9 to 11 weeks flowering time and plan to harvest by mid to late-October. By then, the estimated yield would be less than 16 ounces per plant. While this may seem sizable compared to many other strains, that is nothing compared to what it could give indoor.
