When we hear gelato we think of delicious ice cream, and this new strain of gelato weed is no different when it comes to delicious taste. Gelato strain has a solid impact on the palate that delivers a sweet, pleasurable sensation.
The gelato strain is taking the cannabis industry by storm and there have been many different types released so far, it has become renowned for its powerful yet unique feels when ingested, vaped or smoked.
It gives a well-balanced experience and doesn’t give the user a crashing feeling at the end of the high, it has a citrusy look, smell and taste.
Gelato strain was created by mixing Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet, after much trial and error they finally came up with the hallowed Gelato strain. Created to become a very well balanced hybrid of Indica and Sativa, at 56%-44% respectively.
This one isn’t too cerebral for beginners, offering an energizing high and an uplifting mood that is good for social settings or to mellow out with over a movie. This is quite rare for a hybrid that is mostly dominated by the Indica strain
One thing that will interest a lot of cannabis enthusiasts it the fact of how much THC it has! The lower end is still around 18% in THC content, so there is a lot of bang for your buck, the THC is normally around 20-26% though in most cases.
This is another thing that makes Gelato so popular, its reliable and the effects last for a long time even in small doses, giving strong effects in a relatively short time.
Rich in history and still feels like a new player, sometimes you might want to skip pudding and go straight to the deeply relaxing, flavoursome vibes of berry, sweet citrus and all of your favourite desserts with ice cream rolled into one.
Gelato strain clearly gets its name from the Italian ice cream that we all love, with dark purple blooming buds, illuminated with vibrant orange hairs that look like they are lighting up the buds with the essence of fire!
It’s not the easiest right now to buy in the USA for several reasons but some of the better cannabis suppliers are more likely to have it. You would be better shopping around in the recreational use sites or shops rather than medical marijuana suppliers.
You can easily check what is currently on the menu at your local supplier or dispensary, this all comes down to whether or not you live in one of the states that can sell it legally though.
Gelato strain may not be a household name just yet but we believe it will become one in the next couple of years.
Gelato flavour, texture, aroma
The pungent aroma of gelato is easily recognisable and it will be an obvious smell too, it is hard to carry these buds with you discreetly, so keep that in mind as it may be a deal breaker for some of you.
If you are somebody who can deal with the sweet stench then you will be happy with your choice, sometimes the smell is the most delicious part for cannabis users. The aroma of the buds is reminiscent of orange and blueberry flavours with distinct gelato salutes.
Tasting impactfully sweet with wood flavours and an after taste that is a bit like lavender.
It will go well with most people’s likes and wants because the flavour is so welcoming across the board.
Growing Gelato Cannabis Strain
The Indica dominance means that the strain will only grow a medium height, giving you more control to grow it in small environments or if you want to grow it indoors. This is also ideal if it is intended for personal use or people who don’t have huge amounts of space.
Growers of Gelato strain comment on how joyful it is to watch the plant grow and how pretty the flowering buds become in full bloom.
The start of the cultivation process can be a little difficult due to people not being able to obtain seeds or clones of other plants.
Networking with other people in the cannabis industry can open doors connections for your future endeavours. It’s always handy to know a man with a plant!
The Gelato strain is not easy to grow either but growers can be successful growing this indoor and outdoors but the monitoring process needs to be a committed endeavour. One that uses proper techniques to cultivate and monitor the plants into full maturity.
Using a grow tent for indoor use is common as it keeps the strain at a required specific temperature in order to grow successfully, you don’t want to end up with a half-baked plant.
Growing inside a tent will give you more overall control of the growing process, allowing you to monitor and adjust temperature levels. The environment needs to be humid for the plant to grow well.
If you plan to grow this efficiently outdoors then you better be in a tropical climate!
Medical benefits of Gelato strain
Gelato strain is beneficial mentally and physically, offering a lot of medical benefits for a lot of different needs. Offering extreme physical relaxation and body relaxing effects that could help with muscle spasm, migraines, headaches, inflammation and people who suffer from chronic pains.
It could also help with sleep issues or act as an aid for people who suffer from insomnia, it has a very strong THC content. At present, it is not easy to find edibles of the gelato strain, which may seem ironic given the name of this cannabis variety.
We also expect that to change as the plant becomes more popular.
People could benefit mentally from ingesting gelato if they suffer from anxiety, depression, or stress. This list is not exhaustive but these are the main conditions that gelato has the biggest impact on.
