“We know from both the chemical analysis and genetics that it could produce THC (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid synthase, the main psychoactive chemical in the plant),” he explained, adding that no one could feel its effects today, due to decomposition over the millennia.

Alaskan Ice is praised for its impressive THC content that leaves you with a potent, energetic, and awake high. This sativa-dominant hybrid is great for daytime use.
Alaskan Ice is said to be an American West Coast Haze plant that’s a cross between a Mexican, Columbian, and Thai strain. Judging by its appearance alone, you can tell Alaskan Ice takes after its frosty White Widow mother. Alaskan Ice plants grow up to have white coloring all around and an iced appearance, almost as if it’s been snowing outside. Like its White Widow mother, it grows heavy with crystals that create a stunning white overlay that causes your fingers to stick together.
The effects of this strain are closely tied to its Sativa Haze father. Consumers may find themselves feeling energetic and restless, which is why we recommend Alaskan Ice for the daytime. Too much of this stuff in the evening may cause insomnia and a lot of tossing and turning in bed. Growers can expect a flowering time of approximately 9 weeks from Alaskan Ice marijuana seeds and an impressive reach of 9 to 10 feet.
