Ice is a near-even balance of sativa and indica genes, a descendant of Skunk, Northern Lights, Shiva, and an Afghani landrace (sativa/indica ratio 50:50). This strain, which is often confused with Ice Cream, won the 1998 Cannabis Cup as a hybrid. It has high THC levels, exceeding 20% in available samples, and that makes for a very potent, euphoric high that delivers a dramatic mood boost, an energetic kick, and a shot of creativity. The effects are simultaneously lazy and focused. Ice can be used to treat anxiety, chronic pain, sleeplessness, everyday stress, and lack of appetite.
