Ice Queen is a Sativa hybrid crossed from flavorful Cinderella 99 and the notorious 1995 Cannabis Cup winner and perennial favorite White Widow. With a high trichome county and a THC content between 18 and 23%, this strain is an energizing option for daytime use.
Ice Queen's buds range in color from dark green to almost brown. The cured flowers have plentiful leaves with the airy, fluffy texture typical of purer Sativa. Mostly notably, buds have inherited the heavy resin output of their White Widow parent - a dusting of trichomes coats the exterior, making this strain sticky enough to merit use of a grinder. The predominant scent is sweetly herbal with some lavender. Broken open, the nugs smell more peppery, reminiscent of some hash strains. Inhaled, the smoke is especially smooth - spicy flavors are intensified on the exhale.
At first, the high from Ice Queen is entirely head-focused with a pressure around the eyes and temples. A strong cerebral focus takes hold, making this an ideal strain for those with difficulty finding motivation for creative or even mundane tasks. Creativity mingles with a general sense of euphoria. Users describe a more indica-like body melt as they come down from the peak - although you may not experience total couchlock, sleep may come more easily.
Resistant to temperature fluctuations, Ice Queen can be grown indoors or outdoors, although indoor growers should plan ahead for plants as tall as 6 feet. This strain forms thick, ample calyxes that are heavily branched and tend to be long and tapered. Indoor flowering time ranges between 7 to 8 weeks while outdoor harvest comes particularly late, in the end of October.
Fans of Ice Queen enjoy the strain for its no-hassle, well-balanced high. Mildly fragrant, it's a relatively discreet choice for use outdoors - the perfect thing for a mellow afternoon in the park.
