Bud Buzz: Ice Cream Cake strain is an excellent cannabis strain for when you just need to clear out all of the day’s stress and negative energy and have a relaxing night. A decidedly Indica dominant hybrid that has relatively small but dense buds, bright green in color with some purple in the mix as well. Ice Cream Cake is a super frosty cannabis strain, just dripping with trichomes. The smell and flavor are similar, think earthy cheese or a smoked Gouda type smell and flavor. The smell if you are smoking a joint, or from a pipe or bong tends to linger so make sure you plan ahead for that.
From the first toke you will start to feel your body relaxing and the slight head buzz hits almost right away too, which makes it a perfect hybrid. Ice Cream Cake allows you to feel relaxed, euphoric with a little bit of energy. As your buzz progresses you will lose some of that head buzz and the body waves will become much more dominant. Enjoy this part of your high, it will last for quite a long time, up to four hours, with the last hour leaving you pretty sleepy and ready to chill out in bed or on the couch.
No real couch lock with this cannabis strain though, just a gentle progression from being super stoned and alert to stoned and sleepy. The perfect strain for stress, anxiety, depression and those who struggle with insomnia. Also this strain works well for people who need help with nausea. There is a significant issue with dry mouth but as long as you stay hydrated it improves over the course of your buzz. No other negatives.
Drinkables– You will need to hydrate a little bit before you begin getting stoned with this cannabis strain, just to keep that initial dry mouth under control. Plain water is best for that and then you can move to other liquids once you are nice and baked. If you want a little more energy to your buzz, go with a caffeinated drink like flavored coffee or a soda. If you want to embrace the full Indica effects of Ice Cream Cake, you could have a glass of wine or beer, not too much alcohol though, you don’t want anything to interfere with your high.
Munchables– The munchies are part of the experience with this cannabis strain and you can expect them to hit pretty hard at around the hour mark. If you want to satisfy a craving for savory food, embrace the cheesy aroma of the strain and go with some loaded nachos. If you need something sweet, carrot cake is a delicious way to end your day.
Doables– As Ice Cream Cake gives you a pretty chill buzz you may want to plan some chill activities like a movie night on Netflix with some friends or an evening listening to or playing music to help you completely unwind. You won’t need much additional help with this cannabis strain though. It is not a super social strain but you may be in the mood for games, either online or actual board games. Laughing comes very easily with Ice Cream Cake, which is always a good thing in a cannabis strain.
