Although we all fear the hidden dangers that lurk within black ice, be they for pedestrians or motorists alike, this particular black ice has the opposite effect. Instead of being feared and avoided, Black Ice should be embraced and enjoyed. A wondrous bud created by the mad geniuses at the Spanish outfit, The Moon Seeds, Black Ice packs a sedative punch (or should that be caress?), that will have you craving for the comfort of your couch or the warmth of your bed. And with its insanely high 24% THC level, this should come as no surprise.
The Black Ice buds are a frosty mint green with fiery orange hairs that are bathed in resin and caked with white crystals. These trichomes make the buds super-sticky to the touch and give them a slight white sheen, perhaps inspiring the “ice” in this strain’s name. With a scent that can only be described as a “floral hay” and a sweet berry taste that is spicy upon exhale, this beautiful bud delivers similarly with its flavours.
Black Ice delivers a wonderfully delicious high that begins like the ivy growing on a country house. It is a proper creeper. This initial slow-build ultimately gives way a dreamy state of mind and is a great accompaniment to passive activities like binge-watching David Lynch movies or listening to some trippy, immersive music. Eventually you’ll be lethargic, but you won’t feel as if you are completely tied to your couch.
Because of these relaxing, sedative effects, Black Ice is ideal for treating conditions such as back pain, insomnia, and stress as well as mood swings and manic depression. Also, because of its relative lack of intense, cerebral effects, this may also be a good choice for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
