Ice Wreck’s high takes effect quickly, exerting a pressure around the smoker’s eyes and temples scarcely before they’ve finished coughing. What follows is a suddenly cerebral mindset that can be good for the kind of freely-associative thinking that lends itself to both task-based analytical work as well as more freewheeling, creative brainstorming. Ice Wreck also brings a buzzy energy that’s great for accomplishing an afternoon’s worth of errands or a similarly mundane activity like cleaning. The strain’s strong cerebral nature, forcing smokers to spend time in their own heads, can be disorienting for the uninitiated. In the right set and setting, though, this energy can be uniquely lucid and even social, provoking conversation and good vibes when shared with like-minded friends.
As the high progresses, a progressive body stone sets in, pulverizing any pervasive muscular tension while allowing users to breathe more deeply and easily. This mellow indica onset can take the edge off of the strain’s initially cerebral properties, allowing smokers to kick back and chill out. Ice Wreck is unlikely to become totally incapacitating, though. Instead, its eventual blend of mental and physical stimulation can be a great way to enhance activities that involve both brain and body coordination, like exercise, video games, and even sex. Because of its decrescendo down from energy into subtle relaxation, Ice Wreck is recommended for late afternoon to early evening use.
This bud’s versatile effects can have wide-ranging applications for medical cannabis patients. Its upbeat, energetic properties may temporarily relieve the troubling symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. Its lasting sense of focus can also be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders. Meanwhile, Ice Wreck’s physically relaxing properties may soothe aches and pains, whether they’re temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like lupus or fibromyalgia. Because its early effects can be mentally fast-paced and disorienting, this strain is not a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
