Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” Strawberry Ice is a heady, energetic strain that was named Best Sativa at the 2015 Oregon DOPE Cup. With big colorful flowers that emit an aroma of fresh strawberries, Strawberry Ice is a great choice for staying active and motivated throughout your day. The fruit flavors and subtle mint undertones lead the charge towards the creative, euphoric bliss of Strawberry Ice.

From the OCS, ” Northern Harvest’s Strawberry Ice is a hybrid strain with very strong THC potency balanced with CBD. Strawberry Ice balances very strong THC potency with CBD. It’s grown, hand-trimmed and hand-sorted in a hybrid greenhouse, and its terpene profile features terpinolene, beta-caryophyllene, nerolidol and limonene for a fruity strawberry taste. 

Note:  There was “Zero” CBD.

A Sativa with an Indica feel

Strawberry Ice is a name that got our attention.  Strawberry Ice by Northern Harvest packaged August 18, 2020, about 9 weeks before our purchase, cost $24.95 for 3.5 grams with 17.263% THC and a strong citrusy gassy scent.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.

The “high” starts in the head after inhalation ends.  The start is a warm Indica blissful embrace with growing creativity and happiness.  As the intensity grows over the first ten minutes, there are some mild body effects to compliment the increasing cerebral  stimulation and good vibes.  At the 15 minute mark, we have the full meal deal with time dilation, euphoric blissfulness, deep sense of contentment and reflection.  Da magic carpet is here.  Err … this is suppose to be a sativa?  Strawberry Ice is a sativa with an Indica chilled vibes.  Crazy!

Half an hour whizzes by with great clarity driven by a smooth clean refreshing energy flow of blissfulness.  This is a sativa huh?  An hour goes by quickly with a functional dreamy “high.”  Our shopping review protocol confirmed the functional euphoric state making shopping a pleasure with infinite patience on the long checkout.  The “high” dropped in intensity after 80 minutes and residual effects for another hour for almost a 3 hour experience.

Activity pairing can cover a broad range of both day and evening opportunities.   We believe this would work well for social interactions, light productive interludes with some free time or some self restorative sessions.
