History, Genetics, Origins
Ice plants have genetics which are 50 percent Indica and 50 percent Sativa. THC levels can rise to 20 %. Its parents are:
- Skunk #1
- Northern Lights
These are all heavy-hitting parent strains.
Appearance and Smell
Ice weed plants grow only 3 to 6 feet tall. The nugget above has a true chunky indica look. You can see the dark green buds studded with orangish pistils and especially smothered in white frosty trichomes full of THC from which the term ice likely derives. Although the plant does not have the highest known THC levels, there is something to be said by how sticky and packed the THC is, as this can give you a particularly concentrated high since it’s kinda like smoking dabs, whereas evenly distributed THC of the same level may not hit as hard.
The fragrance and flavor of Ice is like spice, pungent earth, fruit, and especially diesel gasoline.
How to Grow Ice Cannabis Seeds or Cuttings
Growing weed from Ice cannabis seeds or cuttings is of easy difficulty. You can use fancy setups like hydroponics, sea of green, and screen of green to increase yields, however, this plant will grow fairly easily indoors and outdoors as long as you have the right light, temperature, humidity, and if outdoors, sufficient time in the growing season.
Germinating your seeds will be your first step. All you need is two wet paper towels and two plates. Put one wet paper towel on your plate, evenly space some seeds on the paper towel so they can soak up some water. Cover in the other paper towel, then cover with the other plate. This mimics a seed having fallen on moist ground and mildly buried. In three to ten days, your seeds will sprout a little root and leaf.
Now they are seedlings ready to be put into some oil or whatever other fancy system you got going on. During the seedling stage, they will need 16 hours of light and 8 hours of dark per day. This will last 2 to 3 weeks. You get them past this stage and you’re doing very well.
The vegetative stage is arguably the longest and most important. Weed plants like to grow and die each year though some people have kept ornamental plants alive for years by not allowing them to bud. To each his own. Vegetation will take about 4 months, males will separate from females. If you want no seeds and big buds, remove the males, find something useful to do with them. You can do nearly anything with hemp. They are man’s favorite plant. Make tea, clothes, paper, gardening mulch, whatever you want. Unfertilized females will produce the biggest buds. However if you want to sell seeds or have seeds to grow next year, let the males do their job of impregnating the females.
Flowering will take eight to eleven weeks, this is when your beautiful buds come out, covered in icy trichomes. Sheer off your buds and hang them to try. Store them in darkened mason jars. Don’t get rid of the rest of your plants. Hemp is one of the most useful plants on the planet as far as humans are concerned. You can make all kinds of medicines and clothing with the remainder of the plant.
Medicinal Marijuana Review
Ice cannabis plants are 50 percent Indica and 50 percent Sativa. THC levels can be up to 20 %.
Medical Marijuana is sometimes prescribed for PTSD. This happens especially in the context of PTSD as a result of combat. There is slightly less stigma for prescribing what were once considered street drugs for war wounds physical and mental. I gather the reason for this is because we feel like people who have put themselves in harm’s way and protected us with their lives, no holds should be barred in our attempt to help put them back whole. Recently, a nasal spray derived from former party drug ketamine (Spravato) was fast-tracked for use for veteran’s suffering from PTSD, depression, and anxiety. Ketamine itself is a dissociative hallucinogen known from raves but also as an animal tranquilizer. It has also been used as anesthesia in children with complex regional pain syndrome. Finally, it’s rapid-acting antidepressant qualities were discovered and so a nasal spray was fast-tracked for use in former veterans.
Medical marijuana has also seen some use in veterans with PTSD and other injuries. Marijuana has a long history of indigenous use in the United States, the Americas, and all over the world. Hemp was even part of the anointing oil in the old testament Bible.
An article in Forbes revealed that there are at least two ways in which cannabis helps with PTSD. One, it blocks fear responses in the amygdala. One study even measured the reactivity of the amygdala in people with and without THC and found reduced fear response in those given THC.
Researchers found a failure of the extinction of fear related memories in PTSD, and theorize the use of cannabis can jumpstart the ‘forgetting’ of the emotional, fear part of the memory. It turns out forgetting parts of memories is just as important as remembering parts of the memory. However, remembering the content of the memory may be sufficient to prevent a repeat while being excessively fearful of the event can cause us to be unable to function in regular daily life.

Ice is known for its heavy coating of resin and trichomes. Since it’s only 20 % THC, that means the availability of that THC is superior for an herbal smoke. It’s a bit more like a dab or concentrate. Also, producers like to make dabs and concentrates from it because the THC is so easy to get at, sitting right there on top of the nugget. This is a smoke that goes to the head quickly, giving you tingles of pleasure and pain relief. Good day and happy toking!
