Cannabis ice cream

La Ferrari. Don’t let the name Ice Cream fool you. It will lick you down if you’re not careful thanks to the potency of this exotic plant.

The name comes from the smoothness that makes Ice Cream a winner with growers and smokers around the world. Why the Ferrari tag then? Because once this plant clicks into gear it takes off like a racing red sports car, fast and furious. And what a ride!

This is one of our new generation varieties, bred from classic original lines to produce a plant that comes with its own strong identity. An instant hit when we released this specialist strain, it also won the over the taste buds of the High Life cup judges who voted it in their top 3 two years in a row.

We spent our time breeding this beauty. The result is a plant that is perfectly suited for indoor grow operations thanks to rapid and healthy growth (8 – 9 weeks flowering time), and a general lack of stretching. This makes it an ideal option as a multi-branch plant and also makes it perform spectacularly as part of a Sea Of Green (SOG) operation.

Outdoors, Ice Cream may not be the biggest yielder, but it is still popular with growers looking to benefit from that indica strength. It performs satisfactorily in regions as far north as Canada, the UK and the Netherlands, but it is in the south that it adapts best – sunshine coaxing the best from its resinous buds.

Under the hood, the Ice Cream plant packs copious amounts of trichomes, tightly clustered, its heads lining up in regimental rows and glistening with a resinous glow. Like the ice cream you always wished for, expect the palette to dance with vanilla and pine while the aroma is pure old school skunk.

It remains a popular choice; with growers who enjoy its turbo powered growth and smoking fans who enjoy all the power that comes with a turbo indica engine to drive them through the night.

“I can say it’s one of the most exotic strains I’ve found, and I’ve tried a decent amount of strains. You feel very Zen like, as if you are going throughout the day in a state of focused and functional meditation.” ICMag Forum

  1. I understand why they call it Ice Cream Review by Mark

Not only one of my favorite Paradise strains but one of my favorite strains ever. I find that Paradise describes their strains very accurately and the phenos I found in my pack were as advertised. Very interesting candy like smells and and buds as dense as my sensi stars. I ran two packs the very first time and I can confidently say that you should get yourself two scoops of ice cream, I’m glad I did. (Posted on 6/3/2019)

It’s what all the kids want! Review by jcom

Of the 35-40 strains I’ve grown over the years, this is by far the most popular. People love the Sensi Star as well but, as my buddy puts it, “Ice Cream is what all the kids want!”. I always grow it in deep water culture with Botanicare nutrients. (Posted on 4/2/2014)

Review by SirSmokesALot

What a strain. 10/10 germination. Responded well to LSt, and was one of the easiest strains I have ever grown with some really full flavor smoke. Some variation I found but all 10 had a amazing funkiness that is next to impossible to describe. Well Done Paradise

Best strain for depression Review by fatass

Best strain for depression or anxiety
Few hits and you are happy and relaxed
No paranoia at all (Posted on 5/2/2012)

Positive Review by Tronlam

First comercial harvest of this strain confirms this as a real winner. The plants are as they say” ferrari” like when talking about a fast response to any imbalance or stress condition. The advantage though is ample time to fix them. The yield was very good 100 g plus per plant. Very tasty smoke. Provides an upbeat feeling. Another proven winner by paradise. Best feminised seeds on the market. Period! (Posted on 4/15/2012)

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Here’s How to Make Weed Ice Cream

1. Cookies + Cream Weed Ice Cream Recipe

Follow our step-by-step recipe below, or follow along with us on YouTube.

Active prep time = 15 minutes

Inactive prep time = 8 hours

Ready in= 8 hours, 15 minutes

Note: *Extra time needed for decarboxylation and cannabutter or weed milk prep

Required Ingredients
  • 1 Teaspoon Lecithin Granules
  • 14 Ounces Condensed Milk
  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 Pound Oreo Cookies, broken into medium-sized pieces, or another flavor/candy that meets your preferences
  • ¼ cup chocolate sauce (optional)
  • Extra Oreos (optional)
  • Cannabis

Note: Feel free to add additional ingredients like egg yolks, sugar, food coloring, honey, milk powder, caramel, and more, to meet your taste preferences.

Required Kitchen Equipment
  • Cheesecloth
  • Fine Mesh Strainer
  • NOVA Decarboxylator
Directions
  1. Decarb up to ¼ ounce of cannabis if using the oven method or for best results, use the Ardent Nova decarboxylator which will allow you to use significantly less cannabis for the same potency. When your bud is decarbed, grind it into medium-sized pieces to begin creating cannabutter.
  2. To make cannabutter, simply place decarbed cannabis and butter back in the Nova for a second cycle. If you aren’t using a Nova, place ½ cup butter, the decarbed flower, and 1 tsp of lecithin granules into a glass jar with lid into a crockpot and cook for 2 hours. Whichever infusion method you choose, strain plant matter from the finished product using cheesecloth in a fine mesh strainer, or for the cleanest option use the Ardent Frainer.
  3. Place melted cannabutter into a mixing bowl and add 14 oz of condensed milk. Whisk together until smooth.
  4. Pour 2 cups heavy cream into a separate mixing bowl. Using a mixer, whip until it reaches the consistency of whipped cream, approximately 5-8 minutes.
  5. Using a rubber spatula, fold the condensed milk mixture into the whipped cream until well mixed. Fold in the Oreo pieces until evenly distributed.
  6. Spread mixture into an 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish. Top with chocolate sauce and additional Oreos, if desired. Cover with plastic wrap, freeze overnight, and enjoy! As with all edibles, start slow until you know your tolerance level.
