Ice Cream Cake Strain is more than it seems, though if you’re looking for vanilla-scented cookie-cheese goodness, it will deliver the goods you think it will. In addition to its flavors, its dominant terpenes add flashes of spice that deepen the experience. Its THC tests reasonably high, which should warrant caution from new users. Otherwise, Ice Cream Cake should be a dreamy experience.
The strain has a mysterious lineage, adding mystique to the mix. We know it was bred by Mad Scientist Genetics out of Bakersfield, California. And we know there was a wedding at some point; we just don’t know between who and how. Some say Dream Cookie married Cheese Cake, while others say Wedding Cake shacked up with Gelato 33. The debatable genetics reveal a 75/25 Indica/Sativa mix and incredible flavors that have to come from something with a dessert-like, nutty vanilla lineage. We’re just not positive from which direction.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
Smoking Ice Cream Cake starts off with a flavor like cream cheese and vanilla, relaxing into a nutty exhale that starts to drift towards citrus and herbs.
Ice Cream Cake Strain grows into its nutty vanilla scent with a colorful bouquet of buds. They’re different shades of green and purple, decorated with rusty hairs and frosty crystals. Its major terpenes include limonene and caryophyllene, with some myrcene peaking through. These give it a citrusy overtone, an almost orange aroma, mixed with cinnamon. The truly nosy cannabis connoisseurs will be able to sniff out lavender as well.
Ice Cream Cake’s effects are pungent owing to mid-20s THC levels. It gives you a cerebral push, a lift in your mind that encourages happiness, easiness, and positivity. If you’re a Type A personality person, running around doing work, controlling your life, Ice Cream Cake could be a remedy from yourself.
It will leave you locked to your couch, teasing you with sedation. Your racing thoughts will be gone, calm as a sea of melted ice cream for you to drift bodily away into who-knows-where.

The tantalizing flavors can jumpstart a stubborn appetite too, making it great for people who suffer from appetite loss and nausea.
