In-Depth Details: Ice Cream Man #3 Strain Profile
Ice Cream Man #3, also known simply as Ice Cream Man, is an ultra-rare, super-potent 70/30 indica-dominant hybrid cross between Jet Fuel Gelato and Legend Orange Apricot first propagated by Compound Genetics. While many seeds from this cross were tested, Ice Cream Man #3 is the phenotype the breeder stuck with thanks to its creamy flavor profile and trichome production. This strain checks in at a whopping 18-23% THC and contains some extremely fruit-forward and mood-improving terpenes including Terpinolene, Myrcene, and Limonene.
The Ice Cream Man terpene profile gives the strain an extremely unique aroma, blending together a variety of sweet and sour summer berries along with a unique, kush-like kick reminiscent of diesel fuel and black pepper. The strain's flavor is similar in a sense, just much more refined. An inhale brings that peppery spice to the forefront, though it's quickly overpowered by the rich and creamy, yet incredibly smooth smoke. The strain takes on a fruit parfait-like flavor, with a creamy smoke and a berry, apricot, and citrus-tinged aftertaste.
The Ice Cream Man strain is a sight to behold, too. The strain takes on an incredibly full appearance while she grows, growing large branches with broad water leaves that give the plant a large and bushy appearance. The flowers swell into large colas dueing her growth cycle, though the whole plant takes on a crystalline sheen of frosty trichomes. After the harvest and consequential cure, the buds are notably light and fluffy. They range in shades from light to dark green and are covered in a thick layer of amber-orange pistils. Each nug is completely coated in a thick blanket of THC, giving them a glittery, crystalline appearance.
Superficial details aside, the Ice Cream Man strain packs a wallop, though the effects are rather unique. While the genetic makeup and lineage of the strain are predominantly indica-leaning, the strain throws a lot of cerebral sativa-dominant effects. In fact, the Ice Cream Man strain is pretty energetic and uplifting, making way for potent mental bliss that will leave you feeling quietly joyful as well as stimulated, mentally focused, and possibly creative. However, the strain also offers a handful of potent indica effects, including a tingly body high that soothes and relaxes every limb, muscle, and organ. This effect coupled with the blissful euphoria and relaxed body sensation makes for a strain that many users claim to be notably arousing, making sex more comfortable and enjoyable for patients with pain.
These effects coupled with above-average THC levels between 18-23% make it a great choice for battling a variety of physical and mental ills and ailments. The strain is excellent for medical patients battling pain, inflammation, headaches, and stomach aches along with chronic symptoms of stress or depression. When taken at night, the deep physical relief fades into a sleepy effect that is great for insomnia and other sleep-related conditions. However, timing, setting, activity, and dosage is everything with this strain. Since it offers both indica and sativa dominant effects, you can enjoy the strain at any time of day, though you will want to have something to do if you're waking and baking with this strain. It will amplify your energy levels, allowing you to get away from any troublesome fatigue, pain, or stress. However, this effect can cause anxiety in some patients. It may also cause cottonmouth and dry eyes.
All in all, Ice Cream Man is a super popular choice among patients at The Epic Remedy for both daytime and nighttime use against a variety of different symptoms. The unique, mouth-watering berry and apricot flavor, fuel-tinged scent, balanced mix of effects, and higher than average potency levels make the Ice Cream Man strain an extremely powerful cannabis medicine.
The Epic Remedy's Ice Cream Man #3 Strain Review
My first impression of the Ice Cream Man strain was how pretty the flowers looked in the bag. Each little spade-shaped nug throws exceptional colors underneath the thick layer of trichomes. Light greens, dark greens, golden yellows, orange pistils, and lots and lots of frost all make for a spectacular first look. I grabbed the an 1/8th for myself, photographed it, and packed it into a bowl.
The strain smells great, plain and simple. The first impression is of a peppery, fuel-like spice though it matures a bit when you grind the flowers up. When those terps are released, you'll notice some potent juicy berry aromas alongside a citrusy, apricot punch. Overall, it smells like a kushy-indica, with an energetic citrusy kick. To tell you the truth, I wasn't sure what experience I was going to have with this strain. Usually, with the scent profile alone you can get a pretty good indication of what type of effects the strain will produce. I have to say that with this unique mix of aromas, I was perplexed.
Regardless, I still sparked up. The first sensation was of an herbal funk with peppery, diesel-like notes that mellowed into a rich and creamy yet smooth smoke. However, the strain was mouth-wateringly juicy. It left me with a lasting impression of sweet and sour berries, apricots, and lemons. The aftertaste was exceptionally fruity, though those fuel-notes left a lasting impression behind.
The effects kicked in for me almost instantly, but not in the way I was expecting. The genetic profile of the strain is indica-leaning, but the effects are definitely more sativa-dominant. Those fruity terps all promote a sense of energy, coupled with the THC which had me feeling euphoric and floaty. The strain does offer indica effects too, though. While it seems to be more sativa-dominant and cerebral, it still leaves you with a gentle and tingly body high that is great for managing chronic pain and reducing tension.
On the medical side, the strain very blatantly chilled me out and melted away some of my constant stresses. It left me feeling uplifted and gently invigorated, which helped me with my focus and creativity levels. At the same time, I felt some potent relief in my low back and shoulders as well as a notable increase in appetite almost immediately. When I smoke the strain during the day, it seems to energize me which is excellent for fatigue. However, when I smoke it at night I almost always find myself full-body relaxed and sleepy, which is great for insomnia.
Overall, I'd say the strain is exceptional for its extremely delicious flavors and for its ability to provide both indica and sativa effects. It soothes and relaxes the body while improving your mood and leaving you feeling happy and euphoric. The strain is an excellent choice for managing pain, stress, depression, sour moods, and both fatigue and insomnia. If you haven't had the chance to try it yet, you can find it any all three of our medical dispensaries here in Colorado Springs.
