Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” Bred by Seed Junky Genetics, Ice Cream Cake is an indica-dominant cross of Wedding Cake and Gelato #33. Completely flushed with icy trichomes, the buds express light green coloration with dark purple hues throughout. Ice Cream Cake maintains a creamy flavor profile with sweet hints of vanilla and sugary dough. Effects come on heavily, leaving you completely relaxed with a good night’s sleep soon to follow.

From the OCS website, ” ICC, an indica-dominant strain, gives off heavy citrus notes with slight peppery and floral undertones. This is thanks to its dominant terpenes: d-Limonene, beta-Caryophyllene, beta-Myrcene, farnesene-2 and linalool. ICC is grown in a Hybrid Greenhouse, and is hand-cut and wet-trimmed.

Ice Cream Cake?

Ice Cream Cake (ICC) by Indiva packaged on September 21, 2020, cost $39.95 for 3.5 grams came with 20.86% THC and a strong earthy musky and piney scent.  Out test amount was 0.26 grams.

The taste of strong piney Indica starts the “high” with a steady euphoric rise.  Ten minutes with a growing forceful euphoric embrace as cerebral playfulness distracts … we were no longer in Kansas.  Fifteen, twenty, thirty minutes drifts by as the meaning of time evaporates.  Forty five minutes later, we were fully  immersed in a timeless happy euphoric cerebral wonderland and the slight intensity decline finally allowed us to orientate back to reality.

ICC reminds us of old school BC Buds where the “high” delivers a crushing cerebral lockdown with a strong energy body tranquilizer.  This rendition of Ice Cream Cake effects are very similar to Gorilla Glue #4 with intense cerebral mindlock and strong body tranquilizing effects for a double whammer.   With 20.86% THC the “high” has no problem maintaining intensity for a solid hour and a full two hour plus experience.

Activity pairing is perfect for “Me” time to refresh and rejuvenate.  For us, Ice Cream Cake delivered a very introverted tranquilized experience, which is perfect after a long hard day.


ICC by Indiva

Who does not want to try Ice Cream Cake?  ICC by Indiva is a solid Indica rendition.  The “high” builds its intensity over the first half hour to completely transport us to a classical Indica world.  For those who have not tried Ice Cream Cake, this may be the opportunity?

Quality:  8.3

Intensity:  8.1

Duration:  8.0

Total:  8.13

Cost:  $39.95 for 3.5 grams

Would we buy this again?  No.  While ICC by Indiva delivered a very enjoyable experience, this strain effects did not stand out for us.   If we wanted to get a similar experience, how about Good Supply’s Monkey Glue?  (Updated Jan, 12, 2020:  Score was changed to 8.13 from 7.96.)

On an investment note, Indiva’s financial is scary with $12.6 million in current assets and $19.4 million in current liabilities.  Even if we take out the $2.9 million of “Deferred Revenues” out of current liabilities,  we still have a significant shortfall.  It is also interesting in Indiva’s Leadership we noted the Master Grower is missing.  Compare this to Citizen Stash where the Master Grower is the first and only person highlighted.  And Citizen Stash’s Balance Sheet and excellent current ratio  has $5.2 million in current assets and $0.783 million in current liabilities.  Just saying ….
