The ice strain of marijuana is an indica-dominant hybrid that has been around for a few years. It’s unique because it was created by merging multiple strains into one, which means you get all the benefits of multiple cannabis plants. Ice gets its name from combining Skunk #1 Northern Lights; this combination produces sedating effects accompanied by a body buzz.
This strain originated in Holland about ten years ago, but it can also be found in the US. The taste of Ice is a combination of citrus and earthy flavors, which intoxicate the smoker with a smooth smoke that has a diesel aroma. Medical marijuana patients say that Ice helps with pain management and is very effective in treating insomnia. Its medicinal properties are helpful for those with anxiety, depression, or stress.
The effects of this strain include relaxation, pain relief, and sedation. It is recommended for those who need to relax after a long day or those who have trouble sleeping. The known after-effects of this strain include dizziness, headache, lack of appetite, and dry eyes. The high of Ice is potent and releases a lot of THC content at around 17% to the user.
This strain is hardy, but it isn’t particularly picky about growing conditions; however, growers note that it needs a little more nutrients than other strains of marijuana to produce frosted buds. Ice is a fast grower with an easy flowering time of eight weeks outdoors and ten weeks indoors.
