Information about Strawberry Ice:
In 2015, Strawberry Ice took home the prize for best Sativa at the Oregon DOPE Cup. It turned heads with its big, fluffy golden streaked buds and sweet smell. But, what truly garnered it the title was the mind-boggling high induced by its potent levels of up to 21% THC.
Sadly, breeders are unable to trace its lineage or attribute its creation to a breeder. Thankfully, this has not stopped Strawberry Ice from receiving international acclaim.
Strawberry Ice delivers a happy high that boosts the confidence of many enthusiasts. Apart from its recreational benefits, Strawberry Ice also has significant therapeutic value. It boosts energy and reduces chronic stress levels. At the same time, its soothing physical effects relieve the body of tension.

Among the many appealing facets of Strawberry Ice is its fast-acting onset. It begins with a jolt of energy that spreads throughout the body almost immediately after the first two or three puffs.
The mood-enhancing high inspires a happiness from within that leave users upbeat and sociable. In fact, some even become a little too chatty as more memories to share flood the mind.
For casual users, the free flow of thoughts paves way for innovative ideas. Coupled with the mental clarity, it is easy to find oneself engrossed in tasks for long periods of time.
Gradually, the same rush of energy from the onset intensifies. Like a cup of coffee, it reinvigorates the muscles and envelops users in a soothing sensation. However, it is far from sedating. In fact, because of its great wake and bake qualities, it is best used in the morning or early afternoon.
Strawberry Ice has an incredibly sweet fragrance similar to the fruit it is named after. It also has undertones of berries and subtle hints of wet soil which intensify once the bud is broken apart or combusted.
Carrying over to Strawberry Ice’s flavors are its strong overtones of strawberries and wet soil, which make it seem freshly picked. On the exhale, it leaves a fruity aftertaste of sweet berries which linger even after the last hit.
It is not uncommon for users to feel a little dehydrated while using Strawberry Ice. This is because, like other strains of marijuana, it has moisture-inhibiting cannabinoids that interfere with the production of saliva or dry the tear ducts. Though the dry spell usually goes away with time, downing a few glasses of water will immediately remediate both symptoms.
A small percentage may also green out while using Strawberry Ice. ‘Greening out’ is a condition characterized by temporary dizziness accompanied by heightened anxiety levels. At times, the keen awareness can be trigger mild paranoia in some. However, this is a rare occurrence that can be avoided through pacing or moderation.
Strawberry Ice is arguably one of the most effective stress-killers available in the cannabis industry. Its energizing high reinvigorates the mind and the body through and through. In the mind, it releases accumulated fatigue and anxiety over work and other stressors.
For the same reasons, it also provides comfort to users undergoing mental health issues like depression or PTSD. It does so by temporarily managing symptoms through its mood enhancing, as well as stabilizing, psychedelic effects.
One of the best times to use Strawberry Ice is an hour or two before a meal. This is because the same psychoactive compound encourages a hearty appetite. However, before it can stimulate the stomach, it must first soothe the body from different types of pain.
Indicating Strawberry Ice’s strong Sativa-leaning structure is its lankiness. It is tall, thin, and easily sways with the wind. The same holds true for its branches, which easily break off without added support. Under the sun, the plant rewards growers well with a hefty yields of delicious tasting buds.
This is not to say Strawberry Ice does not perform well in the colder climates of high altitudes. On the contrary, its airy buds can withstand the accompanying high levels of moisture in the air. However, due to the presence of pests and the unpredictability of the weather, many growers choose to cultivate the strain in less volatile environments such as greenhouses.
Indoors, breeders can easily adjust crucial factors such as lighting, temperature, and climate to suit the needs of the plant regardless of its phase. However, it may have to be topped early due to its height. Apart from that, using soil as a medium will help enhance the bud’s terpene profile but hydroponic systems will encourage it to flower faster.
Once mature, Strawberry Ice produces gorgeous olive nugs with streaks of gold. Each, though light, are elongated, fluffy, and taper on each end. Meanwhile, its thick layer of resin that make the bud look as though it is glistening like ‘ice.’
Strawberry Ice has an indoor flowering period of 8 to 9 weeks. However, it can blossom as early as 7 weeks or as late as 10 weeks depending on the skill level of the grower. Regardless, its average yield sits between 12 to 16 ounces of buds.
Under the nutrient-rich heat of the sun, Strawberry Ice flowers either on the last week of September or late October. A vigorous producer, each plant yields at least 16 ounces of buds.
