Gelato Strain Overview
Think sweet blueberry and orange sherbet, with a hint of lavender. These are the flavors that describe the popular cultivar aptly named “Gelato”. Bred by Cookie Fam Genetics in Northern California’s Bay Area, this plant’s small, thick and dense buds offer deep green and purple hues with burnt orange pistils. The sweet berry and the citrusy smell become an earthy delight when ground. One reviewer describes Gelato’s thick smoke as “soft and creamy”.
While it may sound contradictory, this cultivar tends to promote deep physical relaxation with focussed creativity. The slow-building body buzz plateaus offering heightened sensory perception accompanied by a peaceful sense of well-being, followed by a good night’s sleep. The Gelato strain has been observed to produce the typical dry eyes and mouth, plus initial dizziness in some users. Like with any cannabis strain that boasts a consistent THC content of over 20%, novice users are susceptible to paranoia if not careful. It is imperative to start slowly when trying new strains.
