Gelato’s History, Appearances & Terpenes
BestBudz presents you Gelato (50% Indica/50% Sativa), this a balanced hybrid created through a cross of the infamous Sunset Sherbet x Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies strains. With a balanced, mellow high and a universally appealing flavor profile, this is a great strain for social use. San Francisco creators Cookie Fam Genetics have released multiple numbered phenotypes of Gelato – phenotype #33 has picked up the nickname Larry Bird in reference to the legendary player’s jersey number.
These Gelato buds have large and lumpy super dense grape-shaped dark forest green nugs with rich purple and orange hairs and a super sticky coating of visible resin droplets. This is a strain with immediate visual appeal: bright orange pistils stand out against forest green leaves that are accented by shades of deep purple.
This strain is infamous for its insanely delicious flavor and hugely powerful effects. Gelato has a flavor that’s said to be much like a sweet sherbet, with fruity blueberry and orange flavors. Grinding up or breaking apart the flowers gives off a more herbal, earthy profile. The aroma is just as sickly sweet, with a lavender citrus berry bouquet that has a woody effect as the nugs are broken apart and smoked.
Gelato is known to hit users quickly, sometimes taking effect before they’ve had a chance to even exhale. The most striking effect is a sense of altered perception and confusion, forcing smokers to adapt to their newly intensified surroundings.
Medically, Gelato has value as a way to treat chronic aches and pains with its powerful numbing effects. Some use it to medicate headaches and migraines as well. This strain’s carefree elevation of mood can also offer temporary relief from the troubling symptoms associated with anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
Gelato is said to be potent, even for more experienced cannabis users; newcomers should temper their consumption accordingly. That said, because of its lack of intense cerebral effects, this strain is not likely to put users into a deeply paranoid mindset.
BestBudz advises our customers to consult with their medical professionals for cannabis consumption.
