About this Hybrid Strain
The balanced hybrid, Ice, is a cannabis strain that won the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1998. It emits a sweet yet chemical scent that has hints if mint and citrus, some crops with undertones of pine.
Its taste is fruity and earthy. When harvest ready, its buds are covered in a frosty layer of crystal trichomes that are reminiscent of ice.
THC levels of Ice can average at 20%, with many crops surpassing this number. Its high will immediately lift the spirits and offer a boost of energy as well as creativity. Though it will help the mind focus and create energy at the beginning of the high, indica effects can also take hold as the high wears down, creating a sensation of laziness. Ice will also help induce the munchies, as well as reduce the tensions of the day.
Because of Ice’s high THC levels, this strain has been known to cause not only dry mouth and eyes, but paranoia, dizziness, and headaches when too much is consumed in one dose.
