While most breeders are content to stick with two cannabis strains when creating a hybrid, others like to take a risk. Sometimes, mixing three or more strains is an unmitigated disaster. However, occasionally, it pays to be bold. Ice Age is a cross of four fantastic strains, and the result is an award-winning option you must try.
Ice Age is a balanced hybrid that’s almost 50/50. Nirvana Seeds bred this cross of Shiva, Northern Lights, Skunk #1, and Afghani. These are among the best cannabis strains ever. While combining great genetics isn’t always a guarantee of success, Ice Age won the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1998.
The initial cerebral intoxication tends to improve a user’s focus and perhaps provides an energy boost. Ice Age is also likely to improve your mood. According to many users, it is an excellent option if you want to feel chattier during a social event.
However, understanding the right amount of Ice Age to use is crucial. Consume the right amount, and you’ll find the evening pass by with you feeling energized and engaged. Overdo it, however, and you’ll find your limbs getting heavy. The body high can overwhelm inexperienced users and potentially result in them falling asleep.
Please don’t confuse this strain with its Ice Cream counterpart. Those who do are often disappointed that Ice Age doesn’t provide a sweet smell or creamy taste. Instead, it offers a diesel scent that makes you believe you’ve walked into the filling up section of a gas station. Grinding the buds leads to an earthy and spicy aroma that’s somewhat pleasant. Ice Age is a strong-smelling strain, so bear this in mind when cultivating it.
Frankly, Ice Age’s taste is not appealing to everyone. Some users suggest that it has a fuel-like flavor, although it is likely that the burnt hash taste confuses them. On the plus side, Ice Age is an ideal cannabis strain for creating hash. You might also get hints of berry on the exhale, which reduces the strong diesel flavor a little.
