Gelato Weed breaking apart the flowers gives off a more herbal, earthy profile. Though it’s thick and lung-expanding, the smoke from Gelato is smooth and leaves behind a soft and creamy sensation — perhaps going some way towards explaining its name. This is one pungent smoke, and those trying to keep their consumption discreet should take any necessary precautions.
A West Coast strain hailing from the San Francisco Bay area, Gelato is the result of hard work from the team at Cookies Fam. More specifically, breeder Mario Guzman is the genius behind this variety. The ultra-popular Thin Mints Girl Scout Cookies is one of its parents, contributing a minty finish and plenty of sweetness. Sunset Sherbet contributes the other half of its genetics, bringing the fruity and creamy flavor that makes it so popular.
Gelato Weed was first released in 2014 and quickly attracted attention for its creamy flavor. Yet over the last decade of being on the market, it hasn’t won any major cannabis awards, meaning it has mostly earned its reputation by word of mouth.
There’s no need to plan a trip to Italy to enjoy Gelato. It’s available at dispensaries throughout the country, but the name actually refers to over a dozen distinct phenotypes. These are variations of a hybrid variety. That means that each product labeled with the same name could offer slightly different effects, looks, and THC and CBD levels. Most Gelato samples have 0% CBD and a THC level that can vary between 17% and 20%. This makes the strain good for both newcomers and seasoned connoisseurs. It has a lot of the same cerebral effects as Snowcap, another icy strain.
This daytime/early evening hybrid has sweet hints from its Sherbert parent and earthy, herbal tones from its Thin Mint side making it pair nicely with sweet fruit and earthy vegetables. Think along the lines of a farm-to-table type meal, with sweet dessert to finish. We recommend a vodka, or gin, to pair with your flower and meal, preferably with a sweet citrus.
Gelato Weed is a one of a kind hybrid from the Bay Area of California. This daytime strain can help with pain and loss of appetite, and elevate you to new heights. Named like the dessert, this earthy, sweet flower is a favorite due to its aroma and strength.
