Having pain is the worst – whether you have a headache or a sore muscle, if you’re experiencing an unpleasant feeling that’s out of the ordinary, many times you may think about what you can do to remedy this. For those in pain who are looking for a more holistic healing approach, cannabis has been something that many people have found to be effective. Cannabis has been said to help reduce pain on different scales, from minor headaches to stomach aches and is even used at times to relieve chronic pain.

In this article, we’ll talk about a specific cannabis strain that can be used to relieve chronic pain, and touch upon the best dispensary for recreational cannabis Las Vegas.

Ice Cream Cake!

Ice Cream Cake is a top cannabis strain popular among cannabis connoisseurs for its relaxing and uplifting effects. A euphoric state of happiness will lift the mood, while leaving the body in a state of couch-lock relief. This indica dominant strain was created by crossing Wedding Cake, a sweet vanilla indica, with Gelato #33, a gassy flavored energetic high.

This cannabis strain can help those afflicted with insomnia, chronic pain, depression and appetite loss. Below, we’ve listed some benefits/uses of the Ice Cream Cake strain:


  • Relaxed, Calm Mind
  • Happy, Lifted Mood
  • Sleepy
  • Healing

Great for

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Back and Body Pains


Cannabis’ distinct aroma is derived from the terpenes that give cannabis its unique fragrance and flavor. Dominant terpene isolates in the Ice Cream Cake cannabis strain are Caryophyllene, Limonene and Linalool.

Caryophyllene may help reduce pain, anxiety, depression, and substance addiction.

  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-viral
  • Anti-inflammatory

Limonene (citrus) is commonly associated with citrus aromas and helps with

  • Elevated mood
  • Stress relief
  • Improves absorption of other terpenes and chemicals through the skin, mucous membranes, and digestive tract

Linalool (floral) has a calming lavender floral scent, denoting a relaxing and improved mood.

  • Reduces the strength of acetylcholine, a brain chemical which controls muscle contraction
  • Limits cells in the spinal cord that transmit pain signals to the brain

This combination of terpenes makes Ice Cream Cake one of the top cannabis strain choices of medical cannabis users for rehabilitation and medicinal use.

When to Use

The powerful effects of Ice Cream Cake should not be taken lightly.

The best time for using the Ice Cream Cake cannabis strain is when you have time to relax and decompress from a long, hard day. Feeling the worries and stresses melt away as your body finds itself in a state of extreme relaxation will give your pain the calming relief it needs to heal and bring your mind to a euphoric mood.
