Gelato is a renowned, award-winning strain that originated in the San Francisco Bay Area. This strain has built itself a stellar reputation over the years, earning an army of consumers. Gelato is also referred to as Gelato 33 or Larry Bird. The latter moniker is a tribute to distinguished basketball player Larry Bird, whose jersey number was 33.
Overview: This strain was created by crossing the delicious Sunset Sherbet and the revered Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. Gelato is an Indica dominant variety with soaring THC levels of 20% to 27% and 1% CBD. The high potency should serve as a warning to novice consumers as this hybrid can easily knock out anyone with a low THC tolerance. In addition to the impressive cannabinoid composition, Gelato also packs terpenes Limonene, Myrcene, and Caryophyllene.
Appearance: Gelato seeds grow into a short plant that is characterized by green and magenta buds. The buds are smaller than most other strains, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for through its aesthetic appeal and an outstanding experience. Its leaves are broad, dark green, and are surrounded by beautiful fiery orange hairs. When placed in the dark, the strain glows thanks to the purple specks and a shiny resin layer.
This hybrid requires a lot of TLC during its growth and development; hence it is best suited for experienced cultivators. Its short stature makes it an ideal indoor plant, especially when a grower is working with limited vertical space. After 8-9 weeks, the plant produces 450-550 grams per square meter. Outdoors, the plant is harvest-ready in mid-October and delivers 600-700 grams per plant.
Taste and smell: Looking at the strain’s heritage, one is not wrong to expect a mouth-watering treat from Gelato. This strain has a sweet, sherbet, and blueberry flavor upon inhalation. As one exhales, creamy goodness becomes pronounced. Some consumers have compared the taste to that of dessert or candy. The aroma is woody, lavender, and earthy, with some subtle hints of citrus and berries.
Effects: Do not let the flavor and aroma of Gelato fool you. It might be a sweet and inviting toke, but it packs a powerful punch that may become overwhelming in high doses. The effects are instant and intense. After the first puff, one experiences a blissful combination of cerebral and body-centered high that numbs all pain and keeps them relaxed while still stimulating the mind and fostering productivity. All the negative thoughts and emotions are swept away and replaced by optimism and happiness with this strain. The effects last for much longer than most strains, which is another reason why Gelato is loved by many.
Medical cannabis consumers enjoy the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties of Gelato as it helps compact pain resulting from muscle spasms, backaches, arthritis, and headaches. Insomniacs turn to it for better sleep while individuals with appetite issues use it to stimulate a liking to food. Additionally, the strain is an excellent anxiolytic and antidepressant that combats depression, stress, anxiety, and other forms of mental disorders.
