La Ferrari… Don’t let the name Ice cream strain fool you. It will lick you down if you’re not careful thanks to the potency of this exotic plant. The name comes from the smoothness that makes Ice cream strain a winner with cannabis growers and indica fans around the world.
Why the Ferrari tag then? Because once this plant clicks into gear it takes off like a racing red sports car, fast and furious. And what a ride! An instant hit when we released this specialist strain, it also won over the taste buds of the High Life cup judges who voted it in their top 3 two years in a row.
A 60/40 hybrid, Ice cream strain cannabis seeds develop into plants that are characterized by fast growth, vitality and a distinctive exotic taste. In the mix is White Widow, Bubble Gum and an old School Californian Skunk – the pick of choice genetics from three continents, bringing potency, stability and flavour to this strain.
In the grow room the scent of vanilla is very distinct, along with a skunky note. On the taste buds, Ice Cream announces itself with the exotic taste of creamy vanilla, skunk and a pinch of pine.
The unique flavors at work in this variety make it a real cannasseur’s choice.
Difficulty Level: Medium
Indoors: We spent our time breeding this beauty. The result is a plant that is perfectly suited for indoor grow operations thanks to rapid and healthy growth (8 – 9 weeks flowering time), and a general lack of stretching.
This makes it an ideal option as a multi-branch plant and also makes it perform spectacularly as part of a Sea Of Green (SOG) operation.
Outdoors: Outdoors, Ice cream strain may not be the biggest yielder, but it is still popular with growers looking to benefit from that indica strength. It performs satisfactorily in the world’s more northern regions, thanks to its quick finish time.
However, it is in the south that it adapts best – sunshine coaxing the best optimum performance from its resinous buds.
Under the hood, the Ice Cream plant packs copious amounts of trichomes, tightly clustered, its heads lining up in regimental rows and glistening with a resinous glow.
This appearance contributed to the name of this plant (along with the vanilla taste) and all those trichomes add up to incredibly oily buds, which are dense and fat too. This strain produces three phenotypes.
Indoor Yield: 500 g per m²
Outdoor Yield: 700+ g per plant
Recreational: The hybrid nature of this plant delivers pure indica powerful relaxation for the body without being overpowering. The sativa element produces a pronounced effect in the form of a sense of positive Zen focus.
Medical: Ice Cream cannabis seeds have good medical qualities favored by medical cannabis producers. The balanced relaxation and absence of cotton candy head are attributes that medical users with conditions such as chronic pain will appreciate.
Ice Cream cannabis seeds are suitable for growing outside between 50º n.L. and 50º s.L., and will be ready to crop in early October outdoors (n.L.) and in 8 – 9 weeks when grown indoors.
Estimated yield is 500 g per m² indoors / 700+ g per plant outdoors.
