Ice Cream Cake - Sweet, Potent, and Fast to Flower

If you’re after a relaxing and euphoric high, then Ice Cream Cake is here to satisfy your craving, and then some. This indica-dominant cross between Wedding Cake and Gelato #33 has quickly become one of the most sought-after strains, and with good reason. Keep reading to learn more about this strain's history, effects, and growing characteristics.

Genetic Background of Ice Cream Cake

Ice Cream Cake is a relatively new strain—but that hasn't stopped it from quickly becoming a favourite among both medical and recreational cannabis users. Featuring 75% indica and 25% sativa genetics, its parent strains, Wedding Cake and Gelato #33, have won several awards, making Ice Cream Cake a veritable wunderkind of the weed world.

Wedding Cake

Wedding Cake (also known as Pink Cookies) is a very popular indica-dominant hybrid treasured for its flavour and potency. Bred from Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie, Wedding Cake boasts sweet and fruity flavours enhanced with decadent hints of vanilla and sugary dough.

As a 75% indica hybrid, Wedding Cake is known for producing relaxing and euphoric effects. Her high THC levels, which range from 20% to 25%, may be overwhelming for new users, though they're also the reason Wedding Cake is so beloved by experienced users.

Gelato #33

Gelato #33 is an indica-dominant hybrid bred from Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. Her sweet and fruity flavour profile helped to set her apart from the plethora of other hybrids out there, and win over the hearts of smokers everywhere.

Similar to Wedding Cake, Gelato #33 is known for its high THC content, which also ranges from 20–25%. Her deeply relaxing and euphoric effects make her perfect for unwinding after a long day or enjoying a lazy weekend.

Aroma and Flavour of Ice Cream Cake

Ice Cream Cake is a standout strain due to its unique flavours and aromas, which are sweet and creamy, with hints of vanilla, sugary dough, and earthy undertones.

Ice Cream Cake owes its rich aroma to its highly aromatic resin, which contains high amounts of limonene, caryophyllene, myrcene, and linalool. Limonene has a citrusy aroma as well as an invigorating effect, whereas caryophyllene has a spicier, peppery scent and potential anti-inflammatory properties. Myrcene, on the other hand, has a musky, earthy scent and has been studied for its sedative potential. Finally, linalool has a floral, lavender-like scent and may influence serotonin.

Combined, these four terpenes not only contribute to the strain's decadent flavour and aroma, but also its distinct effects, making Ice Cream Cake a delight for all the senses.

Potency and Effects of Ice Cream Cake

With THC levels ranging from 20% to 25%, Ice Cream Cake has plenty of potency to back up her euphoric effects. As such, those new to the cannabis world are advised to approach the strain with some caution in order to optimise the experience and avoid becoming overwhelmed.

Ice Cream Cake has several reported effects, including:

  • Physical relaxation: Users can expect to spend the majority of the Ice Cream Cake experience in a deeply relaxing physical stone. In quantity, this effect becomes even more pronounced, and can make it difficult to stay awake.
  • Euphoria and creativity: The initial effect induced by this strain is euphoric and inspiring, stoking creativity and divergent thinking. Besides creativity, some users may find Ice Cream Cake to increase their sociability or ability to focus on a single task or activity (such as immersing in a movie or music).
  • Happiness: Ice Cream Cake’s reported increase in euphoria can lead to a general sense of happiness and bliss, making it a popular choice for those looking to boost their mood. This strain might leave you feeling more sociable, giggly, and connected to your friends, family, and loved ones.
  • Increased appetite: Some users report that Ice Cream Cake has a strong ability to boost hunger. For users who struggle with appetite due to illness, medication, or other factors, this effect may be particularly appealing.

Growing Ice Cream Cake

Ice Cream Cake is a relatively easy strain to grow, making it ideal for novice growers or those entering the world of photoperiod feminized strains for the first time. She is fairly resistant to common pests and diseases, and thrives in both indoor and outdoor environments. In either case, Ice Cream Cake grows to medium–tall heights, flowers in 8–9 weeks, and produces large yields, as long as she receives the basic care and attention.

Indoor Growing Tips

When growing Ice Cream Cake indoors, it is crucial to provide the plant with sufficient light and nutrients. In addition, monitoring humidity is important, especially during the final stages of flowering, as Ice Cream Cake’s dense flowers can easily trap moisture. Though she doesn’t require excessive intervention, specific training techniques, such as topping and low-stress training, may help to increase the yield of Ice Cream Cake.

Outdoor Growing Tips

Outdoors, Ice Cream Cake really thrives in a warmer climate, like the Mediterranean or Southern California, though she can still produce good results in more temperate climates, as long as she relieves around 8 hours of uninterrupted sunlight. Thanks to her resistance to common cannabis pests and pathogens, Ice Cream Cake is well-suited to outdoor cultivation. Just like indoors, outdoor Ice Cream Cake plants can benefit from training to manipulate growth and increase yields.
