The green is dark and healthy with sticky resins and bright orange pistils. The taste and flavor is of vanilla and nuts like pecan ice cream. It is sure to make your mouth water and spark the appetite. These particular nuggets have a green sticky resin but other ice cream strains are covered in frosty white trichomes that hold a high concentration of THC.

First you will have to contact the breeder, Paradise Seeds to get seeds or take cuttings from a plant you know to be Ice Cream Strain. Cuttings will grow into an identical plant and you will take the cutting from a mature female plant. Paradise seeds has not revealed the full parentage but it contains Bubblegum strain and White Widow. They want to keep the yummy flavors for themselves to profit from for a while. How do they profit? They sell the seeds.
That’s where you come in as the informed buyer. You know that you and your customers want flavor, not always just a knock your shoes off THC experience. That flavor has psychedelic effects that enhance the therapeutic profile of the weed. Ice Cream also has about 1 percent CBD, other cannabinoids and an enviable terpene profile with lots of myrcene (think myrrh and mangos), and limonene (citrus).

Medicinal Marijuana Review, Contraindications

Ice Cream Strain cannabis plants are 60 percent Indica and 40 percent Sativa. THC levels can be up to 23 %.

Cannabis has proven medical utility in a variety of conditions, but before you start blowing rings of smoke, you should know of the conditions for which medical marijuana is contraindicated.

Youth, Fetuses, and psychosis

First off, recreational marijuana should not be used by persons under the age of 18 or 21, depending on your state. One of the reasons for this is because the brain is still developing and cannabinoids are neurotransmitters and affect the levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain, nervous system, immune system and gut. Before the brain has matured, you don’t want any unnatural levels of neurotransmitters as the tolerance will get encoded into your epigenome and one of the effects is that this appears to give a final push to the development of psychosis in people who smoke as children and into adulthood and are already genetically and environmentally at risk. Now, the research that shows this is confounded in that those who smoke young have other risk factors for psychosis but if you want the best of health, you want to stay on the safe side. On the other hand, children with intractable health conditions such as seizure disorders and ADHD self-harm appear to benefit tremendously from doctor prescribed whole cannabis extracts containing CBD only (Epidiolex) or CBD:THC in a 1:1 ratio (Sativex), both FDA approved medications. Both however contain other parts of the cannabis plant, as isolating just one ingredient destroys the entourage effect where multiple ingredients help produce the therapeutic effects. In comparison, Dronabinol which is isolated, synthetic THC, does not appear to have the same therapeutic effect as whole cannabis extract and has limited use.

2014, in the Indian Journal of Psychiatry, is published an article entitled Cannabis and Psychosis. Marijuana is known to be associated with an increased risk of schizophrenia developing especially if the smoker smokes from childhood into young adulthood.[1]
2019, in the Journal of Neuroscience an article entitled Cannabis and the Developing Brain: Insights into Its Long-Lasting Effects points out that the risk of developing mental health issues after cannabis use in adolescence is associated with certain genetic polymorphisms and therefore cannabis must react with these factors of susceptibility to contribute to the development of mental health issues later.[2] It’s not at all clear that these patients were not self-medicating early. However, an over indulgence in any neurotransmitter whatsoever during brain development is going to factor into how the brain develops.

Animal studies of the developing fetus suggest also that exposure to exogenous cannabinoids causes changes to neural systems which can be associated with mental health.

Users have described Ice Cream strain as their favorite smoke. It has a great vanilla and nutty flavor. The smoke is not harsh and the different growers appear to be putting out good products. That makes it unlike other strains where some people get a good product and others get an iffy pot. Seed production is dominated by Paradise Seeds and they have not released the full lineage so that others can make their own mixes. Users say they get the giggles like it’s their first time smoking, and isn’t that always the goal, to reverse the tolerance one has and have it feel like the first time. How Ice Cream strain does this is not known, but it is likely the terpene profile and the modest 1 percent CBD plus the other cannabinoids. Good day and happy smoking!
