Ice Cream Cake is a rare and potent strain that has made a name for itself by showcasing the best qualities of its infamous parent strains. The indica-dominant hybrid is made up of a cross between Wedding Cake and Gelato #33. The combination results in a creamy, dessert-like flavor profile with potentially relaxing effects. The rare strain is about 75% indica and 25% sativa.
Ice Cream Cake Strain
The appearance of Ice Cream Cake is a nod to the strain’s parents. The bud’s dense, grape-shaped nugs are a forest green color. Like Gelato #33, the hybrid features fiery orange hairs throughout. The strain also resembles Wedding Cake through its frosty layer of white crystal trichomes.
The rare strain gives off an aroma of sweet, creamy dough with earthy notes.
Furthermore, the strain’s dominant terpene is caryophyllene. The presence of caryophyllene makes Ice Cream Cake a popular strain among medical cannabis users. This is because caryophyllene has tons of medicinal benefits like anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. Additionally, the terpene has been known to potentially help relieve anxiety and pain, reduce cholesterol, prevent Osteoporosis, and treat seizures.

Ice Cream Cake Experience
The strain has a flavor that complements its sweet aroma. On the inhale, users will be able to detect a creamy, doughy, and sugary flavor profile. Then, the exhale will leave behind the aftertaste of pine and earth.
The hybrid typically contains between 20-25% THC with very little CBD content to boast of. The result is potentially heavy-hitting effects. Users may experience the onset of an uplifting, carefree cerebral high followed by a relaxing body high with slightly sedative properties.
The effects and potency of the Ice Cream Cake strain may make it a perfect nighttime choice. For recreational users, the strain may complement a variety of activities. From late-night movie watching to stargazing, the strain makes for a potentially relaxing experience that you can sink into.
For medicinal users, the hybrid strain may be effective in treating health issues such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, nausea, and insomnia.
