Ice Wreck is marked by small to medium flowers that do little to visually convey the strain’s power. These buds cling together in dense, clustered formations and hold roughly spherical shapes. They have the dense, solid structure associated with indica varieties. Leaves are a dark shade of olive green and are twisted through with vibrant orange hairs (which are actually pistils, botanical structures meant to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants). Finally, true to its name, Ice Wreck is covered in a thick, even blanket of translucent white trichomes, making these flowers very sticky and giving them an icy appearance even when viewed from afar.
When properly cured, Ice Wreck’s flowers give off a fresh, woodsy pine scent. On closer inspection, there are also some dank notes of damp earthy. Meanwhile, grinding up or breaking open the small buds gives off a rich perfume of incense and spice, perhaps testifying to the Afghani indica in this strain’s lineage. When burnt in a pipe or a joint, Ice Wreck gives off a harsh, acrid smoke that may tickle the smoker’s palate and lungs, inducing tears and coughing. On the exhale, this rough smoke carries a piney, peppery flavor.
