Irish Cream by Mighty Irish Seeds is a backcross of Mighty Irish Hope. This indica-dominant strain is short and squat with strong floral aromas. The flavor is sweet and smooth on the palate while the strain’s effects remain moderately weighted. As described by the breeder, the physical sensations that accompany this strain go from “melted to toasted,” leaving the consumer relaxed and carefree.
When properly cured, flowers of Irish Cream smell both fruity and sweet, with some light floral notes. On closer inspection, there’s also a dank, funky odor lurking underneath — perhaps unsurprising considering that parent strain Mighty Irish Hope has some Skunk in its lineage. Meanwhile, breaking or grinding up these dense buds yields some nutty aromas. When burnt in a joint or a pipe, Irish Cream gives off a smooth, pleasant smoke that carries nutty and coffee flavors on the exhale.
Irish Cream offers a creeper of a high, sometimes taking several minutes after users have savored its unique aroma to reveal its effects. Eventually, users may feel a weightiness that starts in the eyelids and then spreads down slowly through the neck. Muscular tension may evaporate and deep breathing may happen more easily. In addition to a relaxed body, smokers typically also feel a relaxation in their thoughts — this strain’s vibes can eliminate the stress and aggravation of a long day of running the rat race.
