Alaskan Ice is a Sativa dominant weed which is the result of crossing White Widow and Haze, two highly regarded strains. Haze is a pure Sativa with genetics from Columbia, Mexico, Thailand and Jamaica while White Widow is Indica dominant and won top place overall in the 1995 High Times Cannabis Cup.
The Alaskan Ice strain has a distinctive bouquet with notes of spice, pepper and fresh greenery. The taste can seem a little harsh at first but this quickly settles down to a mellow mixture of sandalwood and green herbs. The high is immediate and cerebral with visual effects often present. The initial hit gradually turns into a meltingly physical stone. Medical practitioners recommend this weed for pain relief and poor appetite.
The overall structure of the plants is Christmas tree like with stretching branches. Indoors the plants grow to around 1.5 metres while outdoors they can soar to three metres. Buds are long and cone-shaped, and covered in a glaze of icy crystals. THC content has been measured at a mammoth 21.5 percent.
The Sativa growing tendencies of Alaskan Ice seeds make them best suited to a SCROG setup, although low stress training is also possible. Flowering time is nine weeks and harvests are in the 700 to 800 grams per square metre range.
Outdoors, you can grow this plant anywhere that gets plenty of warm sunny days during the summer which rules out most of the more northerly parts of Europe. Harvest in the northern hemisphere comes in mid-October and yields are as high as one kilogram per plant.
If you enjoy the soaring cerebral Sativa type high, tempered with some Indica sedation, think about choosing Alaskan Ice. It’s not the easiest plant to grow, but careful gardeners are rewarded by high yields of exceptionally potent weed.
