Back Forty’s Watermelon Ice is a lovely Indica dominant strain that offers a talkative head high before easing into a more sedated sleepy feeling. The disposable battery Back Forty made for their Watermelon ice vape is also quite nice, although it seems a bit wasteful, to say the least.
In this review, we will take you through everything you need to know about the watermelon ice strain and disposable cartridge, including tate, aroma, effects, and more.

For this review, we smoked it through Back Forty’s new disposable vape cartridges, unfortunately throwing it out upon completion – which just feels like a giant waste.

Watermelon Ice Strain Lineage
Unfortunately, it’s still up in the air as to which two strains created Watermelon Ice, but at least we know it’s a 60/40 Indica hybrid strain. Regardless of the strain’s actual lineage, its parents have created one of the most unique flavour profiles of any strain we have tried thus far.
Watermelon Ice Taste and Aroma
First things first, Back Forty’s Watermelon Ice cartridge almost certainly contains botanical terpenes that have enhanced the overall flavour. However, that doesn’t take away from the unique flavour and aroma profile.
On your first drag, your mouth will fill with an incredibly sweet melon flavour that transitions into a slight menthol chill on the exhale. The sweet chill it offers may not be as potent as Back Forty’s Mint Kush strain, but it’s still great.
The aroma the other hand was much more ambiguous and overtly sweet, smelling almost like a candy store, as funny as that sounds.
If you’re looking for a cartridge that checks all the boxes in the flavour and aroma categories, this Watermelon Ice might be for you.
Watermelon Ice Effects and High
Sitting at a potent 90% THC, as soon as you take your first drag of the Watermelon Ice cartridge, you’ll begin to almost “feel” your head before easing into a talkative and giggly high.
For the next two hours, you’ll slowly but surely sink into a more sedated and sleepy high that might not be the best for conversing. Don’t get us wrong, you’ll by no means get couch-locked, but you may feel less inclined to talk and want a nap.
If you’re looking to have a decent night with your partner or simply play some video games before heading off the bed, the Watermelon Ice strain is a good choice.
Is Back Forty’s Watermelon Ice a Good Value Strain?
Sitting at $33.99 for almost a full gram of THC distillate, the Watermelon Ice cartridge is quite affordable, as is the case with most Back Forty products.
We smoked the cartridge over the better part of two weeks, but if you’re really huffing on it, it may only last a single week. For anyone who isn’t a cart fiend, this is a pretty solid buy.
We really have to tip our hats to Back Forty for this one; the disposable that was used was higher quality than most 510 batteries. Back Forty should really consider launching their own line of batteries, although they are not disposable.
Is Watermelon Ice a Strong Strain?
If you were to simply smoke Watermelon Ice in a bowl or joint, the strain isn’t the strongest thing in the world, but within THC distillate, it’s more than strong. Two or three good long drags from the vape are all you need to have a really nice high.
Would We Purchase This Strain Again?
While I loved the actual product, I couldn’t bring myself to buy a Watermelon Ice cartridge again due to the huge waste associated with the product. Single-use plastics are bad enough, but we simply cannot justify throwing away an entire battery for 0.95g of THC distillate.
