With so many different strains on the market, it can be difficult for consumers to discern quality cannabis.

This week, The Higher Path shines a spotlight on this extraordinary strain with a special lineage that reaches into the very best of cannabis history.

Likewise, the strain’s aroma and flavor are considered to be exceptionally delectable compared to other, similar strains. When presented at kickbacks or other cannabis-oriented get-togethers, Ice Cream Cake is virtually guaranteed to make an instant connection with those that make its acquaintance.
