Eating Ice Cream is fun, and for some, a means to feel cheerful or relax. The marijuana strain is not any different as it has a great scent and taste, and it can make people feel happy. But overindulging may not be a good idea because of its above average THC content.
|Sativa/Indica||Indoor yield||Outdoor yield||Flowering period|
|40% / 60%||18 ounces per square meter||18 ounces or more per plant||8 – 9 weeks indoors, early to mid-October outdoors.|
There are many types of ice creams, and they come in countless flavors. But when it comes to Ice Cream strain, we do not know its exact genetic lineage. Bred by Paradise Seeds, they have opted to keep its origin classified.
According to the breeder, Ice Cream is 60% Indica, but it delivers an equal head and body buzz. Besides its excellent effects, the plant has done well too. For instance, it has won the Bio Category of the Amsterdam Highlife Cannabis Cup. Once in 2008, and then in 2009.

Still, many users do report that it helps with minor pains and aches.

Paradise Seeds did not only create Ice Cream to deliver the effects it gives to users. They also designed it to be cultivated indoor. It will thrive in an open environment, but it will not have a much greater yield than when grown indoor, though.
So, the best way to grow this plant is to use hydroponics and combine it with the Sea of Green technique.
In as early as eight weeks, Ice Cream may reach full maturity, and each square meter can have a yield of 18 ounces.
Ice Cream, grown in a warm climate, should be ready during the first to the second week of October. Each plant, in turn, would have a yield of around 18 ounces.
