ICE: Iconic Genetics Afghan x (Northern Light x Skunk)
By combining the legendary prowess of three powerhouse strains—Afghan x (Northern Light x Skunk)—you get none other than Indica Crystal Extreme. Its name hints at this cultivar’s most prized quality: a glittering sheath of trichomes that accumulate en masse by the end of bloom. For all you hash-makers out there, there is no better raw material thanICE.
Dependable indica growth
ICEfeminized is notably indica-dominant in growth, reaching a short height of around100cmindoors. When left to her own devices outdoors, she has been known to reach a max of 200cm. Although compact in stature, pinching and topping can force her to bush out laterally, producing a larger yield in the end. Growers will observe this cannabis plant displaying classic indica features with big, fat fan leaves. Some light defoliation may be useful to allow light to reach the lower bud sites of this plant.
ICEis a respectable producer, yielding about500–550g/plantoutdoors and400–450g/m²under a 600W light. It prefers a warm climate like Spain or California.
ICEwill be ready after8 weeksof flowering; however, a lot of growers leave her to mature for a bit longer, about 10 weeks total, to maximise the resin content. During the flowering period, we are sure you will find ICE to be one of the most beautiful cannabis plants to grow.
ICEmakes up for any harvest date delays with its incredible smoke. The heavy indica genetics of the strain results in a wave of full-body relaxation. Given that this is a classic couch-lock cultivar, it’s best enjoyed in the evening. The flavour profile is defined by balanced notes of spice and earth, with a hint of mint. The overall smoke experience is best described as soothing.
For concentrate and extract aficionados,ICEmakes some of the best hash. Period. Ice-o-lator, ear wax, budder, etc. We are certain that even the biggest hash-head will be pleased with the final product. No other marijuana plant fromRoyal Queen Seedsis as suited for hash production as Indica Crystal Extreme.
