Appearance and Smell
Italian Ice is a medium-sized plant. It grows 3 to 6 feet in height. You can see the plant below. It’s clearly covered in white frosty trichomes that contain large amounts of THC. It has a highly-balanced effect: both euphoric and relaxant. Also, Garanimal Strain has resembled effect. But, Italian Ice has a better sleep-aiming effect.
You can see these nuggets look like cereal with icing on it. There are healthy green nuggets. You can clearly see the frosty white trichomes covering the plant giving it’s the power to sedate and produces euphoria. You can also see a mild purple tinge. This is made from anthocyanins that are produced by the plant when it experiences a few days of cooler temperatures late in its development. The purple anthocyanins will open up the blood vessels just like the red in beets. It helps produce nitric oxide which potentiates psychoactive phytonutrients by helping them cross the blood-brain barrier.
How to Grow Italian Ice Cannabis Seeds
Growing weed from Italian Ice cannabis seeds is said to be easy, so go ahead and get started. If you can grow this strain the right way, you will probably get rich.
You will want to grow this strain indoors unless you live in a place where the weed grows large and wild, like the Emerald Triangle or some spots near the Hindu Kush, hence the name Kush for potent strains of weed.
If you grow indoors, you can start with 20 liter growing pots. You need good organic fertilizer. Also, you need good organic soil full of nutrients. It is wise to measure your nutrients and make sure you have the right amounts for every stage of growth.
You need to get a grow tent. This is so that you can control the air, humidity, light, water, and microbiome with no surprises.
You can grow this with basic tools. First, you need flower pots. You can get basic pots or fancy ones. Basic pots should hold at least 20 liters or about 5 gallons. You want to grow indoors to closely control all the growth parameters. A grow tent will eventually give you the most bang for your buck because you will need less light since you won’t be lighting the whole room, just your precious buds. As far as lamps go, you need lamps with high intensity to feed your plants the lightest they can possibly get. These will be all the visible wavelengths and some that can’t be seen with the naked eye. If you buy grow tents they will likely already have the reflective lining you need to make sure you waste no light because you will be reflecting light back onto your plants. If you get tents without reflective lining, you can add it yourself with aluminum or some other reflective material. You can also use Mylar aka biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate. This is 97 % reflective material.
You need lamps that produce a High Discharge. For marijuana grows people often use high-pressure sodium lamps. These use sodium vapor and electricity to produce intense wavelengths of light to feed your plants. They may be expensive and the electricity may cost you a pretty penny but these lights will make up for it with the incredible growth you will get from your plants.
You need to fully control your air quality. This means controlling the humidity and the particles that come into your grow tent. You can use a filter in your air intake to make sure you don’t get fungal spores circulating among your plants. You need a fan to keep your air moving so that any spores that get in cannot settle and grow on your plants. Mold and mites are the biggest enemies of your weed plants. Swiftly moving air helps to cut down on this. You also need a humidity monitor to make sure you keep your humidity incorrect parameters. Your humidity will always be between 40 % and 70 %. Your plants will need higher humidity in their youth and crisp, dry air when they are older. You need a fan to keep the air moving. Your air contains more than oxygen, there is also nitrogen and CO2. Obviously, your plants breathe CO2 and produce oxygen. Your air intake will contain these nutrients so long as it comes from the outside and fresh air keeps circulating.
The first stage of weed growth is germination. Germination is easy as pie. All you need is two plates and two wet paper towels. Put one wet paper towel on a plate. Now space your seeds out on your wet paper towel. Cover with another wet paper towel, then cover the whole thing with another plate. This will create a wet, dark environment. Your seeds will soak up the water and produce a small root in 3 to 10 days. You will need to start checking on day 3. Any seeds that don’t sprout can be discarded after 10 days.
Seedling stage, one to two weeks
Your plants will need the most light when they are seedlings, from eighteen up to 24 hours of light. They also need the highest humidity, as much as 70 %. After two weeks, they may produce recognizable weed fan leaves and are ready to move on to the next stage.
Vegetative stage, two to eight weeks
During this stage, your plants will continue to grow. At this point, you can tell the sex of the plant. The females will grow pistils that reach out to grab pollen. This is when you want to remove the males so that your plants do not become pollinated and produce seeds. Your humidity at this point will be about fifty percent and your lighting should be about twelve hours per day.
Flowering, seven to nine weeks
Now your female plants are ready to produce buds. They will need 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark to know they are late in the growing season. This will induce them to flower by mimicking an equinox, equal parts day, and equal parts night. Once they flower, they will be ready for harvest.
Now you need 12 hours light, 12 hours dark to induce flowering.
You can tell when your plants are ready for harvest because the pistils will mature to a brown color or some people see a dark orange color. You are ready to trim your buds and hang them to dry. Indoors, you will get about 15 ounces per square meter. Outside you will get about 15 ounces per plant. Good job.
Medicinal Marijuana Review
Italian Ice is 60 percent Indica and 40 percent Sativa. THC levels can be up to 25 %. This strain is very relaxing and can help manage anxiety and muscle pain.
Anxiety disorders are very common and run the gamut from Generalized Anxiety Disorder to Specific Phobia. Generalized Anxiety Disorder is free-floating anxiety that is not connected to a specific object or experience. Specific Phobia is when a specific situation or object causes anxiety, such as fear of spiders, bridges, or even very strange fears such as fear of glitter or hitting babies while driving. Even these strange fears can be very debilitating. Some people who fear glitter will not leave the house for fear a stranger may be carrying glitter or that any food they eat may be contaminated with glitter. Generalized Anxiety can cause a person to feel uncomfortable in any situation whatsoever.
Anxiety treatment with medicinal marijuana can be tricky because scientists do not yet know who will get a deep relaxation effect and whose anxiety may be worsened by marijuana. However, due to the popularity of marijuana, many people have tried it and already know whether it relaxes them or increases their anxiety. Those who get a relaxation effect may avoid it simply because they associate it with illegal drugs, despite the fact that it is prescribed medicinally all over the world now. Anyone whose anxiety can be treated with marijuana is extremely lucky because it produces very little addiction, tolerance, and withdrawal, unlike other anxiety medications such as benzodiazepines and barbiturates. As an anxiety medication, for those for whom marijuana is effective, it is an absolute lifesaver. Once scientists figure out why some people react with sedation and others with anxiety, they may learn how to treat anyone with medicinal marijuana who has anxiety and it will be an incredible gift to mental health science.
