Ice Cream is a hybrid strain containing 60% Indica and 40% Sativa. After smoking, the first effects you will feel will usually be an improvement in mood and a heady sensation. These are the effects most commonly associated with Sativa and many people feel that these effects are what make them more creative. Some adults who have been diagnosed with attention disorders find that this allows them to feel more focused.
Only a few minutes after the Sativa-related effects have kicked in, you’ll begin to feel the Indica kick in. At this point, you will start to feel relaxed and slightly numb. You may also notice an increased appetite. This makes Ice Cream a particularly helpful strain for users looking for help inducing appetite.
Anytime you consume cannabis, there may also be some negative effects. The most common are dry mouth and eyes, but some people may become dizzy, anxious or paranoid, especially when consuming higher amounts. While Ice Cream contains more THC than the average cannabis strain, most users report the high to be more “chill” than most other strains.
It seems that the duality of the experience is what draws so many cannabis enthusiasts to Ice Cream. Even though the original cultivator of the seeds describes it as “La Ferrari” because it “takes off like a racing red sports car”, many users find it helpful when trying to alleviate stress. This combination of power and stress-relief may seem like a total oxymoron, but enthusiasts of the Ice Cream Cannabis Strain would tell you that you simply need to experience the intense relaxation of this strain in order to understand.
