Official Information / Basics about ICE from Female Seeds

Strain Name
Female Seeds
indoor, outdoor
~60 days
Only female seeds.

The ICEģ cannabis strain is a selected phenotype from a Skunk Special x White Widow hybrid that was then crossbred with a Blueberry to improve the taste. She was selected out of 500 females, because of her amazing yield, resin production, taste and smell. Years of backcrossing and cubing were spent to stabilize this cross before we had the perfect phenotype. Ice was first introduced as a regular strain through another seedbank Ferry used to breed seeds for. In 2003 at the start of Female Seeds he launched the Ice as a female strain.

Ice is short and has a stocky build. You will find huge, tight buds covered in frosty, snow-white tricomes. This bud structure stems from its Skunk Special origins. The Ice has the potency of its White Widow ancestral roots. Ice was bred primarily for indoor growing, but can also be easily grown outdoors in a Mediterranean climate, as she is a very heat resistant cannabis strain.

The highest THC-levels were measured in the High Times Cup of 1998, showing a THC content of 22%. The smell and taste is strong and intense; earthy, diesel and fuel with a hint of licorice. The high is very balanced with a hard indica body stone effect and an activating Sativa head high.

Have grown ICE (female seeds) two seasons in a row (so yes would and did grow again) but in different climates. In Alpine Europe, this strain does well outdoors if the weather is generally warm and dry. I accelerated flowering by brining the plants indoors into a light tight darkroom at night for 12 or more hours, and harvested in mid-September 2017.

If left to flower outdoors at night (no dark room), early to mid-October would be a likely harvest date.

This year 2018 I grew ICE in California's Central Valley and harvested on October 11. I grew two plants on a western-facing balcony, a semi-guerilla setup. I topped one and let the other grow untrained. The topped one produced more bud than the untopped. The untopped got some shade from the intense sun during the hottest part of the day, and ripened more slowly with mostly clear/milky trichomes. The topped plant stood in the hot sun a bit longer and produced stickier buds with more amber trichomes, maybe 30% amber.

Bud structure and branching is ideal for airflow and is mold- and fungus-resistant. I had plants in the same grow that suffered from bud worm, which is common to the locality (had it last year too) but only on the tallest plants at the top of the main cola. These ICE plants were not the tallest in the grow and didn't catch the eye of the white butterfly.

Effect is very nice -- mostly body with a clear head, relaxing. This is true for both plants grown 2018. The clear/milky trichomes are more uplifting, the 30% amber is sedative.

Ice has been a favorite strain for years but unfortunately, I won't be growing it again because of it's susceptibility to powdery mildew. I did an outdoor grow of Ice 7 or 8 years ago, 1 plant that was heavily topped. It became a monster, 6' high and 5' in diameter. The yield from that single plant was 3 pounds. Fortunately, it was a relatively dry summer and I didn't experience any mildew or mild issues. So needless to say I was excited to grow it indoors. At around week 5 I noticed the powdery mildew and with daily treatments of a mist of 1 tablespoon baking soda to a quart of water, I was able to keep the mildew in check and prevent it from infecting too many buds.

The plants were grown in an 8 pot RDWC system using Cultured Solutions nutrients. It was a fairly aggressive feeder, topping out at about 420 ppm (500 scale). A slight mag deficiency was cleared up quickly with a little supplement of epson salts. Humidity was kept below 50% and additional air circulation was employed to help keep the mildew in check.

While the indoor yield wasn't anything like that outdoor plant, it was still very good, considering the plants were vegged to 24" and topped out at about 3 1/2'. Average yield was 5 1/2 ounces per plant, with one plant giving over 8. These were grown from seed and 3 phenos were observed. One was larger with bigger buds, the other had similar buds but slightly smaller. The third pheno had much smaller buds and foxtailed heavily. I had two of this pheno and they only averaged 4 oz. per plant, dragging down the overall average.

With the exception of the mildew, this a great plant with a fine indica smoke.

Germinated end of April 2017 at 47N, harvested September 14/15. Requires some experience. Had one incident with clawing due to excessive N in the soil mix which was resolved by flushing out the soil. Beginning late July, plants were brought indoors at night into light-tight room, which sped up the flowering and ripening process (otherwise harvest would probably have been later).

Aroma: earthy with a hint of licorice and pine. Effect: quite strong with clear head and smooth body high. Medicinal.

Great for evening enjoyment.

Plutôt décu par cette variété qui chez moi n'est pas devenu "ICE", trop de feuille dans les têtes, gout pas exceptionnel, bof, quoi, passer votre chemin...

8 fem seeds gehabt. Alle gekeimt. Keine Hermaphroditen gesehen.
Die plants waren ca. 70cm bis 130cm hoch. Es gab 3 plants, die etwas mehr in die Höhe schossen. Eine plant blieb überraschend klein. Der Wuchs war mal mit mehr Seitentrieb, mal mit weniger. Aber alle Phenotypen waren lecker und hatten ein echt gutes, sehr ausgewogenes aber auch starkes indica-stoned. Der Pheno auf dem Foto kommt sehr nach der Skunk Special von female seeds. Mit ein bisschen Glück und Geduld kann man bei dieser ICE-Genetik unglaublich tolle keeper finden. Aus den 8 fem seeds habe ich drei phenos gehabt, die wirklich Weltklasse waren! Aloso wie der Zauberer schon geschrieben hat...absolut empfehlenswert!

Fazit: top indica

grow organic!

Wow!!! This is some of the best stuff I've ever smoked. Makes you feel REALLY happy! Good for depression. Really odd flavor but quite nice. I love this strain. One of my all time favorites. Finished in 8 weeks of flower with rock hard nugs. You will be very happy with this strain. No paranoia either.

ICE wird ja auch von mehreren banks angeboten,hier mein bericht..hatte 3 fem-seeds,die auch 3 pheno typen erzeugten.typ 1:sehr kurz und gedrungen,breite blätter die typische indica pflanze.superschnell fertig,nach nur 6 wochen.die schnellste pflanze, die ich in über 20 jahren indoor growing erlebt habe.qualitativ gut,erntemenge halt,wie man es von so einem kurzblüher erwarten kann. typ 2:ein bischen grösser,aber auch noch als gedrungen zu bezeichnen.etwas ausladender,höherer ertrag,braucht 8,5 wochen typ3.fand ich optisch am schönsten,deutlich höher,klarer sativa einfluss,die buds nicht so"skunkig"dicht,aber trotzdem gross,besonders die top cola(errinnert ein bischen an "ultimate")...braucht am längsten,9 wochen blüte(vegi wachstum 3wochen)als "weisse"sorte würde ich keine der drei typen bezeichnen,aber was heisst das schon..auf jeden fall stimmen hier preis-leistunfs verhältnis total.der stecklings grower wird seinen favoriten schon selektieren.daumen hoch!!

My ICE is ready and I wanted to share my first test experience with everyone.

Vegetation: 45 Days (11 Liter Pot) 18/6 Light Cycle
Flowering: 56 Days (25 Liter Pot) 12/12 Light Cycle
Light: 600w
Growth: Branchy with slight stretch (30%) during flowing.
Height: +/- 1.5 Meters


They call it ICE (Female Seeds) because itís covered in crystals (just like snow).
There is a very high number of Trichomes per square mm.
The buds are not spectacular in size compared to other varieties.
The yield appears to be less than with some other varieties.
The scissors are sticky from cutting just a small bud to sample.


The smell is strange to me, like gasoline or diesel fuel with just a hint of something sweet and flowery thatís gone rotten underneath it all.
Itís a smell I havenít experienced previously.
Itís not a pleasant smell Ė but, itís an interesting smell.
A smell that intrigues you as your mind tries to decide.



Waking up sucks ... Itís cold and Iím tired.
But Iím looking forward to test the ICE (Female Seeds).
A small bud was dried overnight in the food dehydrator.


The sample seems dry enough ... So Iím going to chop it up.
The scissors are sticky (again).
The buds are still a little fresh (moist).
But dried enough that theyíll smoke.

My first taste in the stone pipe.
There is nothing much to taste.
But I expected this because of the overnight drying.
Experience taught me that you lose taste and flavor.

The expansion test ... Cough, cough, cough. (PASS > GRADE A+)

However, the first experience was disappointing.
But only because it didnít come on quick like ďThe DoctorĒ (Greenhouse).
Likewise, I felt it in the head as a clear high.
Another difference than from ďThe DoctorĒ (Greenhouse).

ICE (Female Seeds) starts slowly and builds over-time, just like a tsunami.


Second taste. Same method of delivery (stone pipe).
The expansion test (again). Cough, cough, cough. (PASS > GRADE A+)
However, there is still no real taste of anything due to the quick drying.

But Iím really feeling it now, almost like a Sativa.
The effect is very uplifting (no need for coffee).
Likewise, itís very trippy in the head, but clear.

Iím thinking that I can function very effectively on this.
Again, Iím reminded of typical ďSativaĒ like effects.
I didnít expect this from a hybrid-cross Indica/Sativa.
Growth and leaves appeared more Indica (almost Afghani).


The buds are more dried now since I cut them smaller.
So let me roll-a-joint and continue my testing.

Expansion ... Cough, cough, cough with every puff.

I took one-or-two hits and had to put the joint out.
I need a short break, both for my lunges and head.


Very nice Ė clear head buzz.
No sign of any body effects.
Definitely 100% in my head.
Feels like my brain is wrapped in a balloon.
I think I have Chinese Eyes, but canít be certain.
I didnít look in the mirror Ė it just feels like I do.


Time Warp!!
I canít seem to remember where the time went this morning.
Iíve been up for more than an hour now and Iím still sitting.

My mind was wandering around like a lost child.
So it feels like time passed without me knowing.
ICE seems to make you forget about the time ...
I need to get ready for work.

But before I do - expansion ... Cough, cough, cough (Aaah).
The joint is burning good, but I need another break.

I canít seem to take more than one-or-two hits.
Then I have to put the joint out for a few minutes.


Well, Iím dressed now for work.
Another few hits of the joint.
I find myself wandering around the apartment doing diverse housework.
This is unusual, since I donít cleanup before I go to work in the morning.

ICE (Female Seeds) seems to make you want to dive into whatever work there is to do.


Another few hits.
The same pattern.
Slow burning joint.


Another few hits.
Thereís no way that I can finish this.
I need to put it out until after work.

Now damn, usually I can smoke a whole joint (pure, not mixed).
Sometimes I can even smoke two before leaving the house.
But not with ICE ... This hasnít happened in awhile to me.

Time to leave.


What a pleasant walk to work.
Same thing as before - TIME WARP.
ICE makes your mind active.
My thoughts seem to fly like eagles.
Before you know it, time has passed.

Iím asking myself, how long will this buzz last?
Itís 100% in my head Ė absolutely zero in my body.
I didnít expect this level of trippy Ė head effect.
I was thinking ICE would be more of an Indica Buzz.
Much to my delight and surprise, this is sativa high.
ICE (Female Seeds) grew like an Indica or Afghan.

Iím impressed. Very impressed.
I found a new friend to go with my morning coffee.


Iíve been working for an hour now.
I wrote these words during this time.
But the hour passed like only minutes.
They should call ICE ďTime WarpĒ.
Because it warps time, just like a gravity.

The way this happens is that it activates your mind.
You become so occupied in whatever thought or task that you are doing that you completely forget about ďtimeĒ.
You can function on ICE. You can work on ICE. You can be productive on ICE.

ICE is in the head (100%).
The buzz feels clear like a clear glass Ė goldfish bowl with your brain inside.
The effect actually reminds me of putting glasses on in order to see better.
If you wear glasses, then youíll know what I mean Ė everything is clearer and sharper.
That is is exactly the effect (so far).
I feel like an arrow pointed and flying through the wind towards whatever target I seek.

(smile) Iím going to like ICE in the mornings.
Iím not sure if sleep is possible Ė but itís morning.
Iíll have to do more experimentation later tonight.


Iím done writing and I need to work now.
Just coming down a little ... Nice and soft.
Not dizzy Ė not confused ... just gentle.

Itís still 100% in the head, covering my mind like a warm blanket.


Coming down nicely. Itíll be lunch time soon.
Hmmm, there are ďNOĒ munchies with ICE.
This is good, Iíve gained too much weight from ďThe DoctorĒ.

Peace, love and happiness people.

Best Regards,

Bin positiv überrascht von ICE.
Habe 2 Phenos beobachtet, beide sind äußerst stabil
und zwittern nur unter sehr viel Stress.

Sehr schnellwachsende, kompakte, buschige Indicas.

Pheno #1: der "Ertragspheno"...
....sieht aus wie eine fette skunky White Widow
(passt zur Beschreibung von Female Seeds).
Geruch/Geschmack ist sehr lecker, vollmundig, ein bisschen beerig.
Der Turn/Wirkung ist überraschend ausgewogen, trotz der Indica!!!
(Eine der wenigen Indicas, die ich sehr gerne rauche (beide Phenos von ICE sind sehr harmonisch in der Wirkung, macht sehr breit, aber absolut ohne Herzrasen bei mir...sehr smooth das Teil!))
Kann wirklich ein bisschen mehr Hitze ertragen,
ist sehr widerstandsfähig und kann auch Wasser ein bisschen länger halten
(Beim Trocknen dauert es durchschnittl. 2-4 Tage länger!)
Clones kommen sehr schnell.

Pheno #2: der "Blueberry-Pheno"...
Dieser Pheno ist ähnlich wie Pheno #1,
nur das er ein bisschen kleiner wird.
Dafür bildet sich hier auch an den Buds sichtbar
der so leckere "Blueberry-Pheno" aus....mmmmhh...
Die Buds sehen auch sehr kompakt aus,
im Gesamten aber schmaler mit länglicheren Knospen,
ihr werdet ihn sofort erkennen, wenn ihr ihn habt!
Das Aroma ist absolut umwerfend!!!
Der Turn ebenfalls...also umwerfend harmonisch, smooth!
Nicht das totale White-Widow-Knock-Out, aber schon ordentlich!!
Das Blueberry-Skunk-Aroma ist echt wahnsinnig lecker,
wird bei richtiger Lagerung des Endproduktes (nach 2-5 Monaten)
immer leckerer, süsslicher, Chlorophyl verschwindet, usw...

Das die "ICE" nach "Benzin" riechen soll,
kann ich nicht bestätigen, eher wie Super-Shiva-White-Widow!!

Fazit: Zuschlagen, für den Preis absolut TOP !!!!!
