Ice Wreck Kush strain or simply Ice Wreck for short, is the splendid combination of Ice, the legendary strain Trainwreck and another unknown British Columbian strain. First bred by Crop King Seeds, locally-sourced Ice Wreck Kush has been crossed with unknown strains to create the strain we are now familiar with. The team behind the research and development of this strain must have had potency in mind, as they created a flower with effects as dank and devastating as the name sounds. This hybrid strain packs a deep, cerebral head high and a subtle sedating body high all-in-one, making it very frequently sought after across the nation.
This behemoth of a strain packs a very mighty punch. Regular Ice Wreck Kush is shown to contain roughly 18-28% THC content but this harvest of BC-grown Ice Wreck has a THC content of 26%. With such a rich heritage, you can expect Ice Wreck Kush to have a very diverse range of therapeutic properties. The nature of this high is characterized by the deeply relaxing and sedating body effects which are evenly matched by bright, uplifting and cerebral effects on the mind. Some smokers, beginners in particular, may find that the high associated with this strain is too potent, or overwhelming due to the high concentration of THC, while others may be absolutely delighted by the dankness. The dominant effects of this strain are almost instantaneously felt – users experience a surge of euphoria that builds into a clear-headed and focused high. This happy, energetic buzz is great for social situations, just medicate and let the giggles take over. Eventually, the effects transition into a heavily sedating and relaxing high. Although the nature of Ice Wreck Kush is not to be completely incapacitating, it still packs quite a punch when used to deal with physical pains and aches. This strain is most effective when used for the treatment of anxiety, stress, depression and light to moderate pain.
They don’t simply call it Ice Wreck Kush due to its potency. The name is a nod to the the absolutely stunning amount of thick, white THC crystals covering these dense buds. The icy blanket of trichomes are almost adhesive and will stick to your fingers like syrup. Ice Wreck Kush has a familiar indica bud structure, being very round and tight in formation. Nice olive green flowers are accentuated by deep purple toned leaves and a minimal amount of orange pistils.
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Barack Obama once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Hybrid vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.

In such a growing and experimental industry, science has made it possible for the creation of new strains to meet the unique demand of consumers. Hybrid strains are created when geneticists or growers cross-breed pure indica strains, sativa strains or other hybrid strains together to create a new plant, and they can lean towards either being indica dominant, sativa dominant or an equal 50/50 balance of its parentage. What is different about hybrid plants compared to indicas or sativas is that the range of effects are endless. Hybrid strains are very complex and can be bred to contain both sativa and indica characteristics, making them great for those looking for the best of both worlds, in a sense.
