With so many different strains on the market, it can be difficult for consumers to discern quality cannabis. While many strains are eye-catchingly branded for the purpose of luring customers, few examples of cannabis do justice to their namesake like Ice Cream Cake. This week, The Higher Path shines a spotlight on this extraordinary strain with a special lineage that reaches into the very best of cannabis history.
Ice Cream Cake: Strain Profile
Ice Cream Cake is a renowned indica-dominant hybrid, descended from the equally lauded Wedding Cake and Gelato #33 strains. Upon one’s first encounter with Ice Cream Cake, the crystalline sheen of its buds becomes apparent, covered fully by cannabinoid-rich trichomes.
Indica strains have a reputation for inducing deep-seated tranquility and restfulness in those consume them, and Ice Cream Cake is no different. However, the strain also utilizes aspects of its sativa genetics to produce a cannabis high that is often described as completely unique.
Likewise, the strain’s aroma and flavor are considered to be exceptionally delectable compared to other, similar strains. When presented at kickbacks or other cannabis-oriented get-togethers, Ice Cream Cake is virtually guaranteed to make an instant connection with those that make its acquaintance.
Ice Cream Cake: Scent and Flavor
With a taste that is reported by many to be reminiscent of vanilla and cream, it is fairly easy to understand how the Ice Cream Cake strain acquired its name. However, those astute smokers with experienced cannabis palates may also be able to identify hints of fruit and spice.
Upon opening a container of Ice Cream Cake, the senses are immediately awakened to a stunningly complex aroma that not only draws to mind the sugary sweetness of its name but calls forth notes of other scents like herbs and fresh lavender.
The Ice Cream Cake strain stands out as a smooth smoke, as well. Beyond its creamy flavor, consumers will notice that the delicate flower comes apart almost at the touch, making for a bowl that is simple to pack and easy to burn.
Ice Cream Cake: Cannabis Effects
Ice Cream Cake also excels at promoting relaxation. Not long after smoking a hearty bowl of Ice Cream Cake, the body begins to feel transported into an entirely new state of being, free from the stresses that can accumulate in everyday life.
Batches of Ice Cream Cake are known to test at around 23% THC on average, distinguishing the strain as very potent.
