Ice Cream Gelato is an Indica-dominant hybrid offered by Paradise Seeds. It has placed in two prestigious Highlife Cup Competitions. In 2008, Ice Cream came in 2nd in the Hydro category, and in 2009, it placed 3rd in the Bio category.
The strain is 60% Indica and 40% Sativa. The high usually starts with the Sativa effects, generating uplifting moods with heady cerebral sensations. Users report feeling more creative. Adults diagnosed with ADD/ ADHD report feeling more focused. The Indica effects follow, often producing a numbing laziness, sedation and increased appetite. Negative effects include the usual dry eyes and mouth. Some anxiety, dizziness, and paranoia may also occur (especially with higher doses).
Patients choose Ice Cream primarily for the treatment of stress. The strain allows patients with anxiety and depression-related disorders to relax. Ice Cream’s Indica-based effects are also helpful to those seeking relief from mild aches and pains. Patients dealing with anorexia and other eating disorders may find Ice Cream useful in inducing appetite.
Ice Cream’s exact genetics are unknown. When grown outdoors, this strain flowers at around 55 to 60 days and is usually ready for harvest in October. Indoors, Ice Cream grows best in the Sea of Green technique. It features an above average yield both indoors and out. More information about growing this strain can be found at King Green Buds.
