What happens when you cross a pure Afghan with a Northern Lights and a Skunk? You get an Indica Crystal Extreme aka ICE plant that is fully covered in resin glands. The buds produced by this magnificent hybrid were so frosty, so sparkling, there seemed no more fitting a name than ICE. For any grower that enjoys making hash from their plants, this is the best feminized variety from Royal Queen Seeds for making hash.
Our Ice Feminized, being an indica dominant like the original, is a very short plant growing no more than 1 m tall. Although short in height, pinching or topping can force it to bush out sideways, producing a bigger yield. Growers will observe this cannabis plant displaying classic Indica features with big fat leaves. Sometimes removing the fan leaves on top will allow the lower branches to grow more.
Our ICE feminized seed isn’t the biggest producer, yielding about 55-65 g per plant, or 300-400 g per square metre under a 600w light. It prefers a warm climate like Spain or California and will not flower too well in northern Europe (UK, Netherlands).
ICE feminized from Royal Queen Seeds will be ready 8 weeks after flowering; however, a lot of growers leave it longer, until 10 weeks, to maximise the resin content. During its flowering period, we are sure you will find ICE one of the most beautiful Cannabis plants to grow as it simply shines with resin glands.
While ICE Feminized might not be our biggest yielder, it makes up for that with its smoke. The heavy indica dominant, with its frosty-covered nuggets, all combine to produce a heavy, physical stone. This is a classic couch-lock cannabis strain that leaves smokers so relaxed and chilled-out that users are advised to use just before bedtime. Veteran smokers who seek a battle for breakfast need seek no further that our ICE feminized.
What ICE lacks in yield it will make up for with hash-making; Ice-o-lator, Ear wax, Buddha etc. We are certain that even the biggest hash head will be pleased with the produce from leftover plant material. No other marijuana plant from Royal Queen Seeds is as suited for hash production as ICE.
Genetics: El Niño x Super Lemon Haze (feminised) | 50% indica – 50% sativa
Height: medium plant (average internodal distance 8-10 cm).
Flowering Indoor: 8-9 weeks flowering time. Yield up to 0.9 gram (dry and manicured) per watt per m2 (with 1000W HPS).
Flowering Outdoor: 9 weeks flowering time. Very large plants can harvest over 1kg of dried, manicured buds.
Taste (burned): lemony, very skunk, slightly hazy.
Scent (unburned): vnutty, spicy, citrus-like, with hints of wood and cedar.
Speed of high onset: creeper.
Duration of high: long lasting.
Quality/type of high: very high at first, it evolves into a stoned body feeling. Complex, strong.
Medicinal qualities: still to be investigated.
The White Lemon is a very balanced cross, expressing the best qualities of both parents.
The El Niño lineage is very clear in the leaf shape and the size and density of the buds.
The Super Lemon Haze heritage is all in the branching, smell, taste, and in the shape of the calyx.
The White Lemon grows medium-short internodes, but keeps growing quite a bit after switching to 12/12 for flowering. The branches grow very strong and can support large colas.
Medium nutrients levels will do great with this strain, which performs outstandingly in all mediums, indoors or outdoors.
Cuttings from mother plants root very fast and easily, making this a great strain
for propagation once the mothers are selected from seeds.
The buds are long, dense, with large calyx and long hairs. Already after 4-5 weeks of flowering the smell gets citrus-like, and skunky. It is not as hazy as the Super Lemon Haze, but it is extremely lemony.
The effect onset is a bit of a creeper, taking time to peak and then staying up there for a long while.
It is a complex, well balanced high and stoned feeling. Its medicinal use has not been fully evaluated yet.
