What Is The History Of Ice Cream Cake?
Ice Cream Cake is beloved by many thanks to its dessert-influenced lineage. A cross between the Wedding Cake strain and Gelato #33, this indica-dominant hybrid evokes a creamy, vanilla scent and decadent, euphoric effects.
Initially, this strain was somewhat of a rarity and only available through clones. However, it didn’t take long for cannabis enthusiasts and home growers alike to seek out this strain in droves. As such, it transformed from a bit of an underground cult classic to one with enduring popularity. In response to the increasing demand, the strain became much more widely available, and today, can be obtained through Growers Choice. Delightful and sweet, it was even named Named Leafly’s Strain of the Year in 2019.
The Benefits of Feminized Ice Cream Cake Seeds
Like all of our strains, Ice Cream Cake premium seeds are the result of thoughtful cultivation. Its feminized genetics, combination of terpenes, and indica-sativa balance combine to create a strain that is highly recognizable and boasts a sweet, distinct aroma.
Ice Cream Cake plants don’t just have a delicious flavor; as feminized cannabis seeds, they are also abundant in resin-rich buds. This is because feminized seeds typically produce only female plants. As such, there is a reduced likelihood of seeds. Rather, your plants can place their efforts squarely on resin production.
This quality alone makes them a hit with dessert lovers and home growers alike. While they do have an intermediate level of growing difficulty, even beginners can count on a generous yield with careful planning and effort. Additionally, their auto-flowering genetics counterbalance the slightly higher-maintenance qualities of feminized seeds.
This cannabis strain also boasts a rich terpene profile. On a surface level, its aroma and taste are creamy and sweet. However, more nuanced notes are present as well. Caryophyllene contributes to its slightly spicy taste, limonene adds a slight overtone of citrusy notes, and linalool provides delicate, floral elements. Combined, these three components create an elegant, dessert-like flavor.
Hybrid strains are often sought out for their balanced mixture of effects. The Ice Cream Cake strain’s ratio of 70% indica to 30% sativa creates the ideal strain for those who, primarily, want to relax and indulge—yet maintain a sense of lucidity, mental clarity, and even creative motivation. As such, this strain is suitable for any time of day.
What Are The Effects Of Ice Cream Cake?
When you consume the Ice Cream Cake strain, you’ll be instantly enveloped with a serene sense of comfort, bliss, and complete relaxation. These potent effects are one reason many cannabis fans prefer this strain before bed.
You may also experience a sense of profound calm. Stress, nervousness, or racing thoughts tend to fade or stop entirely. Additionally, you’ll likely experience significant mood-boosting effects. Glum or listless? After a few minutes, any lingering sadness can potentially be replaced with a mild fit of giggles.
Additionally, don’t be surprised if the strain Ice Cream Cake sparks an interest in its frozen counterpart. Known to enhance appetite, many pair this hybrid with a chilled slice of actual ice cream cake (or whatever other desserts they may have on hand.)
What Is The Flavor Profile Of Ice Cream Cake?
Many describe this indica-dominant strain as prominent in notes of sugar-dusted vanilla. Others detect citrus notes, and those with a more sensitive palette may even recognize hints of cinnamon and lavender. Some even report its flavor is reminiscent of truffle and dried fruit. Given these delicate balances of primary terpenes, Ice Cream Cake is the perfect strain for those with a well-developed palate and a love for nuanced strains with incredible flavors.
How Do I Grow And Care For Ice Cream Cake Plants?
If you have ample indoor space, this strain can be grown indoors. However, it’s important to note that these plants are fairly statuesque. As such, they are particularly ideal as an outdoor plant.
Ideally, you’ll want a consistently warm space with minimum humidity. Take note that Ice Cream Cake plants tend to be more high-maintenance and are not as resistant to pests and diseases as other strains. Yet, for those with the motivation, the extra effort will pay off in spades. You can expect a flowering time of 8-9 weeks leading up to harvest time.
