50% Indica / 50% Sativa Hybrid
Average Cannabinoid Levels
Gelato is a hybrid crossed from taste-engineered parents Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and fruity indica Sunset Sherbert. With a balanced high and a universally appealing flavor profile, this is a great strain for social use. This strain has an indica-leaning high and carries a THC composition that ranges from 20% to 27%.
Gelato’s buds tend to be small but they have the thick and dense structure characteristic of many indica varieties. 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. The purple comes about when high concentrations of pigments called anthocyanins are stimulated by cold weather in the vegetative stage.
Medically, Gelato has the ability to treat chronic aches and pains with its powerful numbing effects. Some use it to medicate headaches and migraines as well. This strain’s 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 watch their consumption. Because of its lack of intense cerebral effects, this strain is not likely to put users into a deeply paranoid mindset.
Carrying multiple desirable traits from its heavily crossbred lineage, Gelato has standout visuals and taste. Its trippy but relaxing vibe makes it a perfect choice for some solo introspection or for chatty socializing.
