Known for its quick onset and divine dessert-like taste, Gelato has made its way up the ranks of popularity over the past couple of years. She’s one of the most delicious cannabis strains we’ve ever had the pleasure of growing. The aroma and therapeutic benefits deriving from this strain have set in stone its status with both medical and recreational growers. This strain has it all, she’s relaxing, soothing, and possesses an incredible dessert and fruity flavor. This hybrid will catch the attention of all your friends, clients, and even other growers with its amazing potency, vibrant color, and delectable flavor.
This beautiful strain was born from a cross between Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC. Gelato has strong ties to California, and along with that comes some environmental preferences. It has quite a high THC content and can be a heavy hitter if not managed properly. In addition to that, it doesn’t contain much CBD.
In addition to having strong ties to California, it’s no wonder it prefers to be pampered in a dry and warm environment. This also means it will grow best with little wind and lots of light. Outside of the areas that fit said parameters, growers should look to treat Gelato as one best grown indoors or in a greenhouse. A good piece of news for outdoor growers: Gelato has a harvest time of around the end of September. Because of this, you’re able to harvest your buds before frost strikes in the colder regions. Gelato indoors has an 8 to 10-week flowering period.
Use and Effects
Gelato’s effects produce euphoric highs accompanied by strong feelings of relaxation. Many people say the physical sensation comes on strong. However, many still find themselves mentally capable enough to stay productive and creative during the day. Novice consumers may want to approach this high THC strain with caution, but those armed with a high tolerance will be delighted in the heavy-handed effects provided by this strain.
Medicinally, Gelato has great value in its ability to treat chronic aches and pains with its powerful numbing effects. This strain comes with an elevation of mood. Because of this, it can also offer temporary relief from the symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, as well as PTSD. Some patients use it to alleviate headaches and migraines as well
