ICE CREAM CAKE LAB RESULTS
High THC, 1% CBG (Leafly)
Primary Terpene: Limonene
Secondary Terpenes: Caryophyllene, linalool, humulene, alpha pinene, beta pinene
Trace Terpenes: Myrcene, ocimene, terpinolene
It may come as a surprise that this desert-like strain’s primary terpene is limonene, which is typically associated with lemons and oranges, but limonene is actually one of the more dynamic terpenes in terms of its role in a terpene profile. In the case of Ice Cream Cake, it’s many other terpenes act to modulate the effect of the limonene on our senses. Pretty cool, huh!
ICE CREAM CAKE GROWING TIPS
Short to medium plants with upright structure and low canopy spread. Gelato-leaning phenos have very little stretch but yield heavily for their size and may benefit from increased vegetative time. Wedding Cake dominant phenos don’t stack as heavily but make up the yield with vigorous growth and stretch. Overall medium yield. The large, dense colas are susceptible to powdery mildew in high humidity environments, especially on the squatter phenotypes. Expect a flowering time of approximately 60 days.
WHERE TO BUY ICE CREAM CAKE SEEDS
Ice Cream Cake seeds are currently available at Tree Stars Seedbank, but your order may take several weeks to ship after sending payment.
Seeds of Horror has a small selection of clones that currently includes Ice Cream Cake. Although clones do not contain THC and there is ample legal defense for their protection by the hemp provisions in 2018 Farm Bill, authorities that come across a living plant may beg to differ. Don’t order clones without considering the risks in your area!
Note: Seed Junky Genetics’ beans are not cheap, so we recommend them for growers with an established system for selecting phenotypes and propagating clones. Beyond the fact that simply germinating seeds can occasionally be challenging, the most difficult part for an amateur grower will be properly selecting phenotypes for their garden.
If you’re a grower that just wants to plant seeds, grow weed, and smoke it, you want to strongly consider autoflowering seeds. If you have a bit of experience and the means to select a mother for propagation, you may find the initial cost to be worth the payoff over time!
