Type: Hybrid, perhaps leaning slightly on the indica side, but very balanced overall
Ancestry: A cross between Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet
Creators: Sherbinksi from Cookie Fam, who are renowned cannabis breeders.
THC Contents: 14%-19% on average, but can reach up to 25% depending on phenotype.
Terpenes: caryophyllene, limonene, humulene
Appearance: This is one good-looking strain with nice, bright contrasts – foresty green flowers, woven with bright, fiery hairs and shades of purple.
Aroma: Befitting its meaning in Italian – ice-cream – this strain delights with its pungent fruitiness and all-around desserty scents. The humulene, which is found in hops, gives it a hint of dough and yeast.
Fun Fact: There are a number of variations of this strain, and the famous phenotype #33 is dubbed Larry Bird as a nod to the player’s jersey number.
There’s a reason why gelato is so universally beloved – it has it all, and better yet, it’s all very well balanced, even for a renowned hybrid. It pretty much epitomizes the ultimate cannabis experience.
On the one hand, it provides a deep, relaxing body high that’s perfect after a hard day’s work, but not deep to the point of gluing you to the couch and making your precious after hours dissipate into oblivion. On the contrary, this body high comes with an exhilarating head high to match, the type that fills you both with euphoria for the very moment you’re in, as well as all-around positivity about life in general and your special place in it.
It’s precisely this beautiful dance between body and head high, deep relaxation and mental buzz, indica and sativa, that makes Gelato a strain you can relish both on your own and in company, exploring your own thoughts and ideas or diving in the ones of others, including those that have gone on to becoming riveting art and content.
Medically speaking, Gelato’s body high can go a long way in numbing pain and alleviating muscle soreness.
