ABOUT KOOTENAYZ EXOTICZ
At Kootenayz Exoticz, our number one objective is to cultivate the highest quality of rare exotic cannabis strains for our consumers. Every strain is done in limited small batches to provide the utmost care and attention to every plant. Quality is defined in many different and subjective ways, and our team of cultivators rely on their experience and knowledge of the plants to carefully select and grow the strains that we would define as top quality craft cannabis. Aromatics, terpenes, texture, bud density, taste, growing environment, and feed. These are only some of the factors that go into our thought process as to what strains we offer.
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. It shouldn’t be used as the only form of treatment for seizure disorders, however, or for other conditions that respond to CBD, as Ice has little of that chemical. There are chemical notes to the flavor and aroma of this strain, as well as sweet-and-sour hints of citrus and other fruit. Dry mouth and red eyes are the most widely reported negative effects, while headaches, paranoia, and dizziness are also possible. Ice is a popular, effective choice on and off the legal medical marijuana markets, but it sells best in Washington, Oregon, Arizona, and Massachusetts.
